Hey there! Thanks for your suggestions on my deck!

If you're going for a more Merfolk-centric deck, Kopala, Warden of Waves, Merrow Harbinger, Lullmage Mentor, Seahunter, Cryptolith Rite, and Master of Waves are all very strong.

As for just general suggestions, Counterspell, Kodama's Reach, Krosan Grip, Beast Within, Rapid Hybridization, Reality Shift, Lightning Greaves, Plasm Capture, Eternal Witness, and Explosive Vegetation are all very strong.

Also, not sure if this is something you want to be putting in your deck, but you can go for the Strip Mine/Wasteland lock with Azusa, Lost but Seeking and Crucible of Worlds (or Ramunap Excavator).

Finally, if you're looking for cards to cut, I'd consider Arctic Merfolk, Jade Bearer, Jungleborn Pioneer, Merfolk Branchwalker, Storm Sculptor, Vineshaper Mystic, Extract, Enter the Unknown, and Exhaustion.

Hope this helps, and thanks again for your suggestions!

Took away a Woodland Stream and added Vineshaper Mystic. I have felt that I have been getting too many lands and not enough other cards.

Also took away 3 Waker of the Wilds for 3 Kumena's Speaker and 1 Mist-Cloaked Herald for 1 Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca.

Firstly, cut the non-merfolk cards (Soul of the Rapids, Waterknot, Castaway's Despair) and some of the weaker merfolk (Jade Guardian, Shaper Apprentice, Shapers of Nature, Vineshaper Mystic). Replace them with Deeproot Elite, Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca, Merfolk Mistbinder, and Silvergill Adept. Also consider Aquatic Incursion to ensure your merfolk have unblockable, and possibly Seafloor Oracle in place of Herald of Secret Streams.

Nice deck !

For removal, I suggest Savage Stomp or Hunt the Weak. Simic merfolks can get quite big with all the +1/+1 counters opportunities which make them great weapons to directly fight your ennemies' creatures.

For easy counters, you can also add Jade Bearer, vineshaper mystic or Hadana's Climb. The latter can even send them flying !

Keep it up

Thank you magicsheep for your feedback, I was thinking of removing Jace now I got the confirmation and even some recommendations for substitute. I got two Kumenas today so I was thinking of removing Jace and one Vineshaper Mystic to put them in. I will look into getting Botanical Sanctum but it's really expensive so I will hold off for now. I do own one Nissa, Genesis Mage so I might look into that too.

Thanks for your feedback and compliment I appreciate ;)

aaronmcd16- This is a really great start to a deck, but I have a couple of suggestions. Increase Merfolk Mistbinder from 3-4, as almost every single card in your deck gets a boost from it, and their abilities can stack. Wake Thrasher is also really powerful in a deck with your type of mana curve, but isn't legal in Standard. Remove both Beneath the Sands, as mana fixing isn't an issue. And if you're going to do that, might as well take out your Deeproot Champion. Replace those empty slots with 2 more Vineshaper Mystics and the aforementioned Merfolk Mistbinder. Hope my suggestions help! Fantastic job, keep up the good work!

Thank you Mice_Overseer I will take out 1 land for now and test that. I did notice that after tonight I did get too many dead draws. I am wondering what I should replace them with. I think Vineshaper Mystic Would be a good addition. What do you think?
