It depends what theme you want for your deck. I think merfolk could be a competitive, cheap to make deck.

If you go with that, I would put more of these guys: Merfolk Branchwalker, Tishana's Wayfinder, Shapers of Nature, and Watertrap Weaver.

I would also try to get a hold of some Vineshaper Mystic, Kumena's Speaker, and maybe Herald of Secret Streams and River Heralds' Boon.

I don't know what's in the deckbuilder's toolkit, but eBay is a good place to get 4x of a single card (uncommons and commons usually all 4x for $1).

I feel like its speed matches the reliance on counters - by the time both Tempest Caller and Herald of Secret Streams can be played it wouldn't be unlikely counters will be around. Especially since I also plan to run Vineshaper Mystic for the three drop... Ultimately we are both running different decks with different flavours so hey ho

Please, keep this updated - I'm playtesting mine tomorrow and may put it up on this site in a week once I've gotten a few plays out of it, so we can compare notes

I'd also go with 4x Vineshaper Mystic

You've only got one card that draws (Mind), which makes Kefnet kinda hard to use.

Also, I feel like you're weakening yourself by stretching across two (three?) tribes. (Cat/Merfolk/Zombies, based on Regal Caracal, Vineshaper Mystic, and In Oketra's Name).

You might get more milage on keeping the buffs to one tribe, then use Arcane Adaptation to smooth things over.

Regardless, I'd recommend Herald of Secret Streams since you've got both Blue and counters in here.

DashtheDestroyer Hm you have a point. Could Vineshaper Mystic be an option as well?

I like it, but I would get rid of one Deeproot Water, one Heroic Intervention, one Verdurous Gearhulk, and one Chart A Course and get four Vineshaper Mystic. Also, River Heralds' Boon would be great in this deck. I'd put Heroic Intervention in the sideboard.

Thank you HokutoMagic for the input, I feel like I should mention that I am coming from the UG version of this deck, so you can better understand some of my choices:

The Hashep Oasis are there to act as a finisher, in conjunction with those unblockable River Sneak, and in that deck I play both the lands, it depends on how much you think you can close the game from a position of having multiple creatures but not very big ones;

The 4th Winding Constrictor definitely gives a bit more oomph to the deck, but since we're not playing Attune with Aether we may have some trouble with consistency therefore I cut one, another reason is the one I mention in the description;

for similar consistency reasons I'm not too sure about Vraska's Contempt, preferring a lighter removal suite in the MB and favouring countermagic and harder removal in the SB (by consistency I mean the chance to cast it on turn 4)

The Hostage Taker seems to me to be a better fit in the MB than The Scarab God because of the huge tempo swing it gives us allowing to take their best creature, because if how many of them we play i also like having more ways to protect them in the 4x Blossoming Defense. I'll definitely try one god in there and 1/2 more in the SB since that is defenitely the reason we want to be in black over red.

The choice to keep one more Vineshaper Mystic is linked to the Sneaks, and i think this I all I have to say: your version of the deck definitely comes from a different angle than mine, making more "powerful" plays in the Vraska's Contempt and the MB The Scarab God and I'll most surely try it, the feedback is very appreciated and feel free to respond if you disagree or find something new.

Hi! i've a similar BUG deck based on energy counters.. i like this type of decks! My thoughts:
- you have 16x merfolks with 4x Metallic Mimic i think you can fix the mana with 2x copies of Unclaimed Territory maybe in replace of 2x Hashep Oasis;
- i use Winding Constrictors and if i play them ALWAYS 4 copies.. it's broken in these counters-decks switch something for the 4th snake... please;
- here i don't like too much River Sneaks, a 1/1 that costs 2 and with no self "enter-battelfield" trigger.. if i should choose, i'll remove 2 of them and add +1 constrictor, +1 Fatal Push and remove 1x Hostage Taker and 1x Vineshaper Mystic for 2x Vraska's Contempt (these against everything..)
- finally, i will put 1x The Scarab God in main and switch it for 1x Blossoming Defense --> down to 3 that is an honest number.. the god can win you free games...
+1 for me
