Triton Shorestalker Discussion

Raysracing yes the Eidolon is not useful in this scenario. Combat damage does include damage to blocking creatures, but Edric specifies dealing combat damage to an opponent. So run lots of cards like Slither Blade, Triton Shorestalker, etc.

Awsome deck man+1 definetly! I've made a couple of changes of my own regarding the creatures (will have a look later on the lands and the Dispell ).
I believe we are on to something . Let me know what you think:
-I've replaced 4x Inkfathom Infiltrator for 4x Oona's Prowler ( personally, I believe the trade off between being "unblockable" for a bigger dmg (3/1) + possiblity of hand disrupt + its mana cost is 1 colorless and 1 black(so we are able to decrease its cost through Frogtosser Banneret , which we didn't manage to do w/ Inkfathom Infiltrator due to their 2 CMC being both blac/blue) + keeping the rogue tribal aspect, preserving that way the possibility of getting pumped like every other creature we have better in an overall way.
-I've replaced 2x Triton Shorestalker for 2x Vampire Cutthroat. The tradeoff between being only unblockable, compared with her skulk hability + lifelink + preserving its rogue aspect, which enables her to get pumped as well better.
-I've decreased 1 unity of Invisible Stalker, I thought 4 was too much.
-I've withdrawn the 4x copies of Royal Assassin
-I've added 1x Aqueous Form + 3x Cold-Eyed Selkie for draw engine, and again, preserving its caracteristics of being a rogue (able of getting pumped) and able of having its CMC decreased by 1 due to its colorless mana.
- And, I've added 2x Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive. It basically looks like this card was created for rogue/farie/tribal haha
Again, tks for the inspiration

Okay. This is an intriguing one.
I have an excessively casual build sort of like this in modern.
So step one here is definitely ciphers. Call of the Nightwing creates a few good blockers. Last Thoughts draws some cards, where Mental Vapors hates a little. Midnight Recovery is epic after a wrath. And, finally, Undercity Plague can be a downright scourge.
Also worth considering- Triton Shorestalker.
Sorry I can't be more help but that's kinda what I got.

Once again thank you for the amazing feedback. Alright i might have misread that then, but i think i will primarily work with untap effects, unblockable and a very little sub theme with +1/+1 counters to utilize other effects and gain more damage since the merfolks don't have crazy power so the attacks with unblockable will be more effective. I have never really worked with these themes before and they synergies perfectly with Kumena :)
Deepchannel Mentor I agree that the CMC takes it down some places, and with the multiple islandwalk merfolk, its effect is not out of the world. Altough it has done some work for me in my playtesting against my own decks, so once i have gotten the cards around release i will see how it plays out in my Meta. But it is on my possible cuts list, altough it's one that is a bit higher on the list to might stay.
Fallowsage: It has already done a lot of work for me in my playtesting and i really like it, so i think this one will stay. Its perfect when you drop this on curve with Kumena and then tap it to make kumena unblockable and draw a card at the same time. I do see the strong potential in Sage of Fables and if i find enough things to cut, it is going right in. Maybe swap it with either Triton Shorestalker or Mist-Cloaked Herald, although i do like these one drop unblockables :)
Grimoire Thief: Good point, i will take it into account, i am trying to run a lot of untap abilities so it might turn out to be good. Intially i thought i could use it in a responds to a board wipe, but i might have blanked for a second when i read it the first time :)
Riverwise Augur/Silvergill Adept: I agree, Riverwise Augur has already been cut for some of your previous suggestions to increase the potential of Islandwalk. Suprisingly Silvergill Adept has done very little work in EDH, i often draw it before i have my engine up and running and as the only merfolk in hand so here it is useless at least, so i think it will be cut very soon once i figure the number of cuts and adds :) But then i can use it in a standard deck i might want to try out :)
Time Warp/Savor the Moment: Yes, i kinda wanted to try out some extra turn plays as i have never done that before with my limited play of blue, but i do have Wanderwine Prophets who will likely do some of that work very excellently, and then i could maybe use them in a heavy control EDH build i am thinking of building :)
Neurok Stealthsuit: It would be an interesting include, but i have realised it does not synergies very well and you are right about the mana cost as well. I hope i can find my copy of Plaxcaster Frogling somewhere, cause i really like this one as a utility creature :)

Glad you liked some of my suggestions! As I said, I wasn't sure which route you wanted to take so I summed up some options for different strategies. In regards to cuts you could make, I'd consider the following cards:
Deepchannel Mentor: This card has not pulled its weight for me in my Sygg, River Guide deck so I've taken him out after almost a year of testing it. It seems like a heavy investment to me when I have other options like Lord of Atlantis and the likes. If anyone had a different experience with this card I'd be glad to hear them out, but until that time, I'm not convinced.
Fallowsage: You really need an enabler to repeatedly tap/untap it. This card does nothing in and on itself, unless you attack. Not to push you, but Sage of Fables enables you to draw cards indefinitely, either pulling counters off creatures that are leaving the battlefield or using it during an Opponents EOT in Tandem with Kumena's 3rd ability.
Grimoire Thief: The ability is a nice finisher but I wouldn't count on it to do much milling unless you really focus on a tap/untap strategy. Unless you can consistently go infinite with this I wouldn't play it.
Triton Shorestalker: there's enough evasion enablers in this deck to cut this. This could also count for River Sneak, but sneak's secondary ability makes for some explosive plays if you have the right cards.
In regards to the Maybeboard:
Neurok Stealthsuit: with all due respect to chadsansing, stealthsuit does offer protection, but at UU in a Bi-colored deck, I'dd rather have something like Plaxcaster Frogling. it's a colorshifted semi-Sygg, River Guide, it works at instant speed, It synergizes with the deck and its ability costs colorless mana, which offers you more flexibility.
I've already started in taking apart Edric and rebuilding UW Sygg, I will post the results in my decklists.

- Another card to add to the arsenal. Into the Roil is still the best, though.
ALSO, OH MY GOD THE PRINTED BRAINSTORM IN STANDARD!!!
P.S. - Congrats on the name bling, sonnet666!

Looks good. Slither Blade is just a little bit better than Triton Shorestalker. Since your deck doesnt have any three drops, I think you could go down to three lands, maybe 1 island, 1 plains and 1 Tranquil Cove. Just some suggestions.
