TacoB4six on There's a snake in my Merfolk!(Sultai Constrictor)

MB. I guess chat was disabled or something dude. I'm new to online MTG sites. I have played Simic fish at my local FNM Standard swiss tournaments 3 times now. Keep in mind my brew of this tribe is very different than yours however I like the BUG constrictor strategy a lot. If I was to say my top two cards I know I'll keep in my main based on how good they worked for me in comparison to so many other cards I've been using.. It's easy to praise my decks super hero removal spell has been Unsummon which I now main 4 because it's that awesome. And the number two favorite card of mine in this strategy Is surprisingly the Armorcraft Judge. I only recently desided to test(online) this card in my build. The Judge worked perfectly to refill my hand and gain me that reach I despitely needed before when I would start to run out of gas. I feel so much more confident returning to my regular standard locals with my fish deck Friday. I'm actually gonna play my newest update of my build on this coming Monday night somewhere else just to make sure I won't get slaughtered like I did Friday. Check out the Armorcraft Judge as a closer, and consider main decking Unsummon in UG Build's similar to mine that is. I dont have access to as good of removal in simic colors as u do in black. But I know when Hazorit attacks and I put him back in there hand it make's me smile at least. lol I deal with the uncounterable hexproof tyrant by side boarding in a two drop instant spell simular to that UR-thermo\thing's bounce spell called Unsubstantiate. The one I use is not as good because you can only bounce a spell on the stack but IMO I prefer it to the higher cmc one Commit / Memory most others use. I use the top half of Failure / Comply. I'd say one last thing on my frustating configuration with Ixalan fish.lol To many other's playing UG merfolk tribal the card's impact is probably so obvious. I'm embarrassed to admit this but after casting it so much only to watch it get killed before my next turn I lost sight of the value of the shapeshifter lord.. even if the first copy only eats a removal spell like shock, push, strike stomp.. ect unfortunately I now must obtain my copies of Metallic Mimic again because without any it my fish deck was so much less effective. that lesson I learned the hard way this past FNM. not sure if the black blue green fish build uses it since it relys on a simular impact on board state by the constrictor at the two slot. if u ever use the mimic be sure u keep urs broseph. Pepsiwilliam you have fun and message me anytime bro. add me if u want. Metallic Mimic makes the less powerful merfolk powerful. I traded mine to help me finance buying other cards I needed for my brew.. this past Friday I tried it without any and it was awful dude.lol click on my name if u wanna see mine dude.. its something like (you could always use Gilly-Weed.) k later

I think you are running about 3-4 creatures too many. If you trim the top end down to 15 creatures, like what you would see in a traditional Delver deck, you should be able to go down to 18-20 lands as well. Delver deck are super efficient and typically don't need more than 3 lands in play, 5 would be considered flooding, just a thought. As a top end, cards like Bedlam Reveler and Cryptic Serpent are better because they provide big bodies for cheap and interact well with spell heavy decks. I would cut Talrand and Aetherling and add either of the cards mentioned above.

Snapcaster Mage is the best blue creature spell heavy decks can play, though I understand if its out of budget.

Other good U/R cards-

Electrolyze

Forked Bolt

Opt

Thought Scour-Really only good with Snapcaster Mage, Reveler, and Serpent

Flame Slash

Unsubstantiate- I like this card as my 5th Remand/Vapor Snag

I come from a highly competitive, large EDH LGS; i'd like to say your protection package seems lacking. If you're going to mostly rely on Brago, King Eternal with Strionic Resonator and some rox; I would reccomend at least 18 counterspells. Maybe tag some spells that don't necessarily counter, but evade the cast spell. Examples are Summary Dismissal or Unsubstantiate. These types are more effective in a control meta, but work with aggro meta too because you can tempo creatures and exile abilities. It just seems optimistic to rely on Strionic Resonator sticking without opposition in a competitive meta. One Krosan Grip and the game feels pretty bad afterwards. I'm currently surfing Brago decks on my feed, and looking for cards I missed. Yours sticks out because of your awesome card choices like Elspeth, Sun's Champion or Neurok Stealthsuit, but things like Thassa, God of the Sea seem out of place, maybe Negate instead? My favorite proactive spell is Trickbind because of my combo meta, it's so much value. Best of luck with your adventures with the King eternal!

Simic Charm is a new idea I'm trying to test. Remand doesn't work for me since my strategy is to be more proactive than reactive. I'm trying to play value cards, and Remand is just stall. Plus there are two other, very relevant modes on Simic Charm. I don't want counters, so Unsubstantiate will almost always be a bad Unsummon. Simic Charm is a much better topdeck than either of these cards, and that's the kind of thing this deck wants.

Why Simic Charm? Couldn't Remand or Unsubstantiate do the same job with fewer color demands?

Take out Remand for Unsubstantiate; it'll work better locking the opponent out. Spell Burst also makes a good backup lockout.

Starfield of Nyx and Lunar Force is worth considering as another lockout that doesn't use up your spell for the turn.

I really like the idea behinnd that deck (I play something similar, only mine is just Dimir) my tip would be to a) lose the Thought Scour and perhaps replace it with removal-spells like Unsubstantiate or DismemberAlso perhaps consider replacing Esper Panorama with a simple Terramorphic Expanse as it doesn't cost mana and also helps you trigger your Crabs. Other than that...I really like that list to be honest..if you can you might try to squeeze in Archive Trap and/or Fraying Sanity

Hope that helps a bit...
