Remove Spreading Seas, Always Watching ,Aquitect's Will and Burnished Hart.

Trade your Fumigate for a Dusk or Fell the Mighty or Retribution of the Meek or Solar Tide.

Drowner of Secrets + Intruder Alarm + Stonybrook Schoolmaster is a combo you could consider. Altar of the Brood also fits in.By using Merrow Reejerey to untap an Azorius Chancery you can achieve infinite mana through a Cloudstone Curio if you have 2 merfolks with cmc = 1 (or cost reducing), so you might want to consider Kefnet's Monument and Sapphire Medallion.Cloudstone Curio would also work for infinite tokens and even infinite mana if you use +Paradox Engine untaps your merfolk and mana rocks whenever you cast a spell. Spell Burst can lock everyone if you manage to generate in mana rocks/creatures, for instance.

+High Tide doubles up your mana for a turn

+Scourge of Fleets


Maybe Blustersquall, maybe Breaking Wave, maybe Faces of the Past (this one combos with Schoolmaster + Altar of Dementia/Blasting Station).

Maybe Retreat to Coralhelm + Walking Atlas + Oboro Breezecaller (infinite mana with a land that taps for 2 mana or simply infinite landfall for Altar of the Brood)

Maybe consider Blue Sun's Zenith since with infinite mana you can draw every card of your deck or force someone to deck out.

Maybe Winter Orb since your average CMC is so low and you'll have ways of untapping stuff (it'll lock everyone else out)

Tidal Force Too expensive id rather the Intruder Alarm -like affects; cheaper/more creatures untapped = more useful

Wall of Frost dont find myself blocking a lot and if i do i just use a clone or Revenant -like effect

Oblivion Sower Not great land ramp for what it is and in a 100 card singleton format searching for a usually 35/100 chance that goes down for each land they have in play this seems kinda bad besides its big booty

Silumgar, the Drifting Death might be good for clearing weenies other than that same as o-sower kinda beefy booty but not a lot else helpful

Arcane Laboratory I don't like stax in non stax decks that nets me advantage only in the form of slowing tf out of my opponents think more Rhystic Study than your suggested "Winter Orb" The other suggestions seem solid ill add them to the maybeboard the only reason I am currently lacking Thran Dynamo & Gilded Lotus is due to the ridiculously broken "my wallet is not bottomless" conundrum. i have like 4 other decks with them in atm and it gets kinda pricy the more of them you need :( (curse you staples that wizards retardedly doesn't reprint!)

Nice list! Have you considered running Null Rod, Winter Orb, and some more mana dorks? Along with Contamination you can really get some nice, asymmetrical resource hate going on. My list runs the same Protean Hulk/Body snatcher line, but heavier on the stax.

  • Thank you for the kind words and suggestion! Icy Manipulator has always been one of the cards I have considered for the deck but never put in. Its obviously a very good card and has general utility; tapping our opponent's resources, tapping blockers for Isamaru, Hound of Konda, and tapping Winter Orb or Static Orb so that we can get a full untap step. It does cost 5 mana the turn its played to get any utility out of it and only hits one target. In the same role of resource denial Kismet may be better, but even then I am not sure what I would remove from the deck to make room for either of them. I think Icy Manipulator is a card worth testing out at some point.

Winther I believe someone asked about that a long time ago??? I'm not 100% certain, however this list is not really meant to be stax. Being complete stax is not the goal. I know that Static Orb, Winter Orb and Silent Arbiter are there, but that's pretty much just so Daretti, Scrap Savant can be in play long enough to ult.

I didn't know that it empties when I draw... I thought I would have it all turn... I can switch it for Night Dealings and just use Black Market as a protection front Winter Orb thank you

Winter Orb had potential, but I don't really need it in at the moment. The deck shuts things down well enough without the addition of that. Thanks, though.
