I may drop the Deadeye Trackers into the sideboard against Golgari decks, remove the Fight Fire With Fire! and add some removal possibly Vraska's Contempt or Walk the Plank

hey guys, thank you for commenting on the deck

Argy, ya i dont have the money for the Doom Whisperer. with that said, i dont have the money for that Golgari deck as well. also, i have considered Walk the Plank, however, i have 2 merfolk decks at my lgs, which is why i went Cast Down instead and i had Moment of Craving over Dead Weight for a little lifegain since there are some Boros aggro decks and a burn deck as well. And lastly, when it comes to Search for Azcanta  Flip and Notion Rain, which is the better choice for the deck, and what should they replace? I already have 3 Search for Azcanta  Flip that i can put in, just need to know what to replace.

skoobysnackz and Drakorya, i've added in 4x Dimir Spybug and took out the Nightveil Predator and 1 copy of Disinformation Campaign. i have also added 2 Detection Tower to get around hexproof

Overall a very solid deck, though you might want to consider replacing Feral Abomination with Tetzimoc, Primal Death, and Skittering Heartstopper with Isareth the Awakener. Tetzimoc, Primal Death, while legendary, is stronger, and it's ability in your hand can be useful against any non-control deck. Isareth the Awakener can help in the grindier games by allowing you to return other creatures that have already died. Also for grindier games, Find / Finality and Golgari Findbroker are worth consideration in the sideboard. Also Golden Demise/Mephitic Vapors/Ritual of Soot in the sideboard for tokens would be pretty good.

As far as budget options, the Statue portion of Status / Statue takes care of most permanents. Cast Down/Walk the Plank will work pretty well against most decks, though Murder is a better creature catchall. And maybe sideboard Plaguecrafter or The Eldest Reborn for planeswalkers. Golgari Guildgate and Foul Orchard can replace Woodland Cemetery and Overgrown Tomb, but then your deck won't be very competitive.

You've made a good start with this deck.

I happen to like Dead Weight better than Moment of Craving. It's particularly good at nerfing Creatures in the late game.

Don't overlook Walk the Plank. It hits more stuff than Cast Down.

The deck is in dire need of draw.

Notion Rain can work but an ongoing source like Search for Azcanta  Flip works much better. A bit of both might the best.

People also usually throw an Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip in the Sideboard.

I understand your reasoning but perhaps it would be better to play Victim of Night? I play it as well but here on Tappedout I posted Go for the Throat. The instant typing makes a difference, although Walk the Plank is slighty better in terms of affected targets
