Thada Adel, Acquisitor Discussion

hkhssweiss on Kumena's Tyranny

With the curve he is running, 35 is generally enough. I would say add one more land but it is a minor difference. Not to mention also that Kumena himself is a draw engine, land drops shouldn't be a issue.

I do agree that for your first EDH built, it looks really solid. Some suggestions for the budget I would recommend are:

Thada Adel, Acquisitor - She can steal ramp from your opponents or just steal their things in general :P

Swift Warden - A cheap way to protect Kumena.

Jungleborn Pioneer - Makes that extra token to activate Kumena's card draw faster.

Cosi's Trickster - Just a one drop merfolk that can bigger everytime your opponents tutor.

Cursecatcher - Makes your opponent's really think about tapping out, and most of the time they forget.

Mystic Remora - Taxing card draw.

Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip - Budget Gaea's Cradle

Cards that I would recommend investing in getting when you have a bit more leeway with budget:

Sylvan Library: Card draw is insane, since you have low cmc you will drop your hand faster, therefore you need just as much refill.

Natural Order: Access to your more higher cost green creatures, ex. Tishana for burst card draw, Seedborn for the untaps, etc.


Hope that helps!

You can take a look at my combo version to gain more insight :p

Octopus Umbra, Lorthos, the Tidemaker and Sealock Monster for flavor and some brute force.

Thada Adel, Acquisitor is about the best ramp mono blue has. So many Sol Rings...

Kumena is a cool guy I used to run him as my commander before, some suggestions I would add in Thrasios, Triton Hero, Seahunter, Fallowsage, Lord of Atlantis, Lullmage Mentor, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, and Kindred Discovery.

Hope that helps!

Thanks carpecanum, Thada Adel, Acquisitor does seem like a really fun card and I'd love to try it out. Bit of a shame that she doesn't have power or toughness equal 1 but I've been looking for excuses to add Skullclamp to the deck and the +1/-1 can give her unblockable so I'm into it. I took Shapesharer out of the deck previously because ideally my opponents' scary threats won't stay long enough on the board to copy them but the synergy is pretty sweet and I'm liking this use your opponent's decks against them theme you have going in your suggestions.

MoonTurtle7 Ya, Bident of Thassa is great and being an artifact has some nice upsides like being tutorable with Whir of Invention.

Thada Adel, Acquisitor is an amazing card for ramping and stealing combo pieces.

Sigil of Sleep, Knowledge Exploitation, Cloak and Dagger

I use Spellbinder in my ninja deck and it scares the hell out of people (it draws a lot of hate). I love that card.

Shapesharer can go in unblocked and then copy anything.

Hi Jackh! If building a standard merfolk deck is what you're looking for, then have a look at my list.


U/G(Simic) Guilds of Ravnica Merfolk

However, if what you're looking for is a budget merfolk deck that can be built on the cheap, then I can suggest some very fun cards.

Cold-Eyed Selkie Cursecatcher Harbinger of the Tides Kiora's Follower Master of Waves Merfolk Sovereign Merfolk Trickster Merrow Harbinger Prime Speaker Zegana Stonybrook Banneret Thada Adel, Acquisitor Vorel of the Hull Clade Wistful Selkie Spreading Seas

With some more that cost a few dollars each if you're looking to upgrade.

Lord of Atlantis Master of the Pearl Trident Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca Thrasios, Triton Hero True-Name Nemesis

I'm sure I'm missing a few obvious choices, but hopefully you'll find a use for some of these cards. In my experience, some cards you may want to drop to make room are Herald of Secret Streams, River Sneak ,and vineshaper mystic .

Some cards that aren't related to Merfolk per say, but would be beneficial to your deck are: Giant Growth, Mana Leak, Unclaimed Territory , Botanical Sanctum(much cheaper out of standard), Hinterland Harbor, Lumbering Falls, Simic Growth Chamber, Temple of Mystery, Thornwood Falls, and Yavimaya Coast.

Sorry if all of this is a lot of information or if I've listed a lot of cards out of your price range, but there are defiantly some cheap upgrades to be made.

**edit I've noticed that tappedout has some card prices listed incorrectly, so check elsewhere first if you're thinking a card is too expensive.

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.

@carpecanum

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.
