Triton Shorestalker Discussion

Good job making sure your combo has redundancy, although some picks seem better than others. I'd definitely want all 4 Kor Duelist since it synergizes so well with the Hammer. I'd even consider something like Simian Spirit Guide to let you win on turn 2. Triton Shorestalker is totally fine, but something like Invisible Stalker could provide the protection that decks like this often need against removal. I think the weak links are Trophy Mage since it only fetches Squire (which is itself only a backup to Outfitter), and Followed Footsteps as the slowest card in the deck. I didn't even know Colossus Hammer existed, so thanks for bringing it to my attention!

Plan your sideboard alongside your first 60 cards- knowing all the tools you have available will help immensely. Knowing you have Tidebinder Mage for RDW or Deeproot Waters for control/midrange.

Bringing down the average CMC or upping the levels of interaction will do a lot;

In terms of 'raw power', Hardened Scales/The Ozolith offer the biggest boosts.

Jade Bearer, Kumena's Speaker, Brineborn Cutthroat, Harbinger of the Tides, Merfolk Trickster Mistcaller, Mist-Cloaked Herald/Triton Shorestalker, River Sneak, Silvergill Adept and Merfolk Skydiver will all let you operate at a lower CMC.

Lowering the curve also means you can run Neoform in place of evolution.

Traditionally merfolk is a tempo list using creatures that delay your opponent, then unblockability (previously islandwalk/flood effects) to finish them off. Its one of the few lists where a bounce effect is often just as effective as a kill spell. Its place in modern was defined by Blood Moon reslience from an all-island manabase combined with land disruption in Aquitect's Will, but that is not relevant in pioneer, so you will need to experiment to find a new nieche. It might be able to emulate affinity with ozolith support, with some luck and a favourable meta.

Augur of Bolas/Deeproot Champion offers a version of the list that wants to spellsling, but I can't say that I've thought through what that would look like.

Would Slither Blade be better than Triton Shorestalker? It has the same ability and and 1 extra toughness

if your wiin con is through combat damage maybe look into some unblockable creatures such as Slither Blade , or Triton Shorestalker to help better confirm damage but also not be a big enough threat to pull out removal spells on their own. Also I feel that with the artifact ramp you have and the overall average cmc of 3.36 (as of me writing the comment) you could probably get away with like 35 or 36 lands if you want to be extra safe. Also you could cut Languish for somthing cheaper like Blasphemous Act .

you need some cheap unblockable creatures, Changeling Outcast , Dimir Infiltrator , Gudul Lurker , Phantom Ninja , Slither Blade , Triton Shorestalker .

some people like cheap 1/1 flyers, Faerie Seer

There are some good changelings that count as ninjas, Graveshifter , Venomous Changeling

Spark Double can copy Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow as it won't be legendary, allowing for huge damage potential.

Cunning Evasion protects form blockers

Neurok Stealthsuit is great for protecting single targets

@ValasCladdana I didnt know about Moonblade Shinobi thats certainly a cool one! For this decklist being a primer I do know that ive fallen behind and am extremely dated since the release of Modern Horizons and havent quite gotten around to updating this Primers description/options section.

The actual decklist displayed is what I actually run/play against friends IRL; Slither Blade is easily the better choice over Triton Shorestalker I just wasnt very active during the Amonkhet/Hour of Devastation timeframe and havent bothered to buy the singles yet.
