Yeah jaylawlerrr, it's not really competitive but it might be fun to play with! Most creatures have high toughness, which is great against ramunap red, but it's mostly for having a laugh. Imagine for example, what would happen if I have on board Panharmonicon, Wildgrowth Walker and Winding Constrictor on turn 5 or so and two Explore creatures enter the battlefield hahahaha 4 explores, 8 counters on wildgrowth (becomes suddenly a 9/11) and many more counters/lands hahahaha

Im dumb, I just realized that Winding Constrictor was only for your own cards.

Have you considered putting in 2 Maulfist Revolutionary's in your sideboard/deck to replace Winding Constrictor? Constrictor does have the advantage that its an passive ability while Maulfist only procs on summon and death, but depending on the deck you are facing it could be the other way around. Ive seen quite a few +1/+1 Explore/Merfolk decks and -1/-1 Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons decks that would benefit more from the Winding Constrictor than you would. But I guess it all depends on the meta at where you play.

So I have a buddy who thinks this may be better if I drop it to 2 color and go all in on merfolk. I don't think I need the Winding Constrictor as much if I go full aggro merfolk with Herald of Secret Streams. That would make this blue/green merfolk +1/+1 counters.

Have you considered adding black for Winding Constrictor because when you get it out with Hardened Scales things really start to kick off. Also white is good for Mikaeus, the Lunarch. Finally, definitely add Walking Ballista.

Great deck!!!! Suggestion: maybe replace the 3xFoul Orchard and 1xField of Ruin with 4xBlooming Marsh. I would also remove 1xDeadeye Tracker, 1xSeekers' Squire1xField of Ruin and 1xWinding Constrictor then replace them with 4xDuress to add more removal options with a sweet bonus to look at your opponent's hand

Yeah, Blinding Fog is an important piece to keep Winding Constrictor on the board. It's unfortunate that it's 3 cost though, because that means if I drop the snake turn 2, I really won't be able to protect him. Ideally, I would drop the longtusk turn 2 and then the snake turn 3 before I attack with the longtusk. I considered Blossoming Defense or Dive Down for protection, but I like that the fog hits all my creatures. Heroic Intervention would also be good, since it costs 1 less, but it costs more money ($20 for a playset vs $.60 lol).

Maybe I should run at least a couple of the 1 cost protects so I can drop a 2 cost creature on turn 3 and then protect a creature from the push.
