I think a singleton Repay in Kind can do some work. Also, Rootwater Thief and Thada Adel, Acquisitor are a good evasive creatures that can help you dismantle decks that over-rely on certain cards.

Thank you for your suggestions! Marwyn, the Nurturer , Thada Adel, Acquisitor, and Ulvenwald Tracker will probably be good additions to the deck. Kalonian Hydra might also be good but there is always the risk of him getting kill spelled before I get a chance to swing.

The reason for Woodland Bellower is because he can tutor any small creature for me which is like 90% of my deck, he can especially tutor Fierce Empath which can tutor any of my big creatures like Craterhoof Behemoth. For Priest of Titania it ramps a lot of mana because all my mana dorks and ezuri are elfs. Phantasmal Image it just adds flexibility to the deck. Caller of the Claw is a nice way to have creatures on board just in case of a board wipe. Avenger of Zendikar is good by himself but combos really well with Craterhoof Behemoth thanks to Tooth and Nail.

I might take out Primal Vigor for one of your suggestions because that card is strong but it sadly helps my opponents too much. Also I have Doubling Season which is a great card.

Thanks once again. If you have any other tips please let me know.

Hey there! Really cool deck, I love when red blue gets to punch people.

Are you finding you hit enough lands? I know EDH decks ususally have 37-40 but you do have a low curve.

Smelt and shatter I don't think do enough on their own for the card slots. There are a few artifacts that can shut down your aggression so maybe something like Thada Adel, Acquisitor or a cheap creature that blows up artifacts will atleast give you a body for the cost.

I like the idea of Herald of Secret Streams, but I'm having trouble seeing how it gets activated? It only seems to be Marchesa, so maybe think about cutting it or adding some more support (immortal pirates taking the throne does sound fun).

My last suggestion is to either add some alternate win cons (love the Revel in Riches) in case beat down doesn't work or you kill one person and the others have pillow forted up. That or add some overrun typed effects, I happen to own Tears of Rage so I always think of it but I'm sure there are better options or ones you own.

Vedalken Plotter is good.

Thada Adel, Acquisitor is amazing ramp for a blue deck.

Do a search for cards with that say "change text". I remember Magical Hack and Trait Doctoring but there are others.

I'd replace a few cards for mana rocks. Maybe go to 38 lands and add Sol Ring, Worn Powerstone etc.

Thada Adel, Acquisitor is a merfolk that can really ramp up some mana by stealing it from opponents.

Hey dude :)

really nice deck !

You'll probably lack some removals and/or counterspells in order to be efficient : Counterspell, Mana Leak, Memory Lapse, Remand, Pongify, Rapid Hybridization and Song of the Dryads are very efficient ones and quiet affordable.

I like the tempo on Selkie Hedge-Mage and Tidebinder Mage but it's a matter of taste :)

I tried some games with Lullmage Mentor and in a multiplayer format it is kinda useless unless you have 20+ counterspells :/. If there is already 7 merfolks on the board the wrath is comin' !

Your curve is kinda low (which is good) so you probably won't need that much ramp. You can probably cut 1 or 2 thing in Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip Cultivate Kodama's Reach Sol Ring Song of Freyalise and instead add creatures that will help you hit your lands each turns such as Silvergill Adept, Jadelight Ranger, Wistful Selkie or Merfolk Branchwalker. Thada Adel, Acquisitor is extra to steal the signets/sol rings of your opponents early game and powerfull stuff in end games.

Surgespanner is a must have in your deck and combine with some untap shenaningans and enough manas you'll be abble to bounce the whole board. Empress Galina is a blast in multiplayer and some Vedalken Orrery or Leyline of Anticipation will help you maximize the value of such key creatures that need to pass one turn in order to be effective. Opposition is a must have in blue heavy creatures wide decks and when you have the tools to untap your creatures it's even better :)

I really like the draw on Vanquisher's Banner furthermore it has an impact the time it enters the battlefield which is really nice

Merrow Commerce is really nice in duel but not that good in a multiplayer format.

Forbidden Orchard works well with Intruder Alarm and makes infinite mana with Kiora's Follower.

If you wanna take a look at my builds (they're made for duel so it's kinda different but maybe you'll find interesting stuff) :

Love it, I'd definitely add more threat cards like Heroes' Podium and up the count of threatening legendary creatures like Evra, Halcyon Witness, Medomai the Ageless or Jazal Goldmane who are especially good with flash cause then people can't see them coming

Also definitely add Honor-Worn Shaku

Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Lena, Selfless Champion, Linvala, the Preserver, Meishin, the Mind Cage, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker (really nice with flash), Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Yosei, the Morning Star

I would recommend playing more Ninjas to benefit from Yuriko's ability. Silent-Blade Oni, Throat Slitter, and Sakashima's Student all have useful effects.

For unblockable creatures, Thada Adel, Acquisitor is really good since there's usually at least one player with islands so you can steal their artifacts. Ornithopter is a cheap way to ninjutsu a player with no flying blockers.

Notorious Throng could be good to generate more fliers, and also gives an extra turn since you have quite a few Rogues.

Dowsing Dagger  Flip is a really good way to ramp since your creatures are unblockable. Sword of the Animist helps too, and removing lands from the deck increases the damage you get out of Yuriko's ability.

You could try Larceny to make opponents run out of cards since your creatures will easily deal combat damage.

Cyclonic Rift is probably the best blue spell since it deals with any situation, so you should include it if possible.
