Woodland Stream Discussion

x12721 on Blue-Green Merfolk (Rivals of Ixalan)

1 week ago

First of all, the TappedOut competitive meter is broken (You can make a new deck with no cards in it and it will be rated as 85%). Don't pay any attention to it.

On to the actual deck: two of the best merfolk in this format are Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca and Jadelight Ranger. I see you have two Kumena, but you could go with three or even four of them. The Ranger is pricey, but is an amazing card that should be a four-of. Another good card is Merfolk Branchwalker. You should also up the Adepts to four copies, as it is a very good card. Merfolk need good draw, because most of the time you'll be dumping your hand very early in the game. Forerunner of the Heralds can act as copies five and six for Kumena and the Adepts as well, and will soon become a powerful threat on it's own. If I were you, I'd cut the River Sneaks, Tempest Callers, and Curious Obsessions. You may also want to consider Aquatic Incursion in place of some of the Deeproot Waters. Most of your merfolk have the potential to become huge, and making them unblockable as well can mean a quick end for your opponent. Finally, Botanical Sanctum is strictly better than Woodland Stream.

For a sideboard, Kopala, Warden of Waves is excellent against targeted removal. Some amount of Blossoming Defense, Dive Down, and/or Heroic Intervention is also a good idea, and could even find it's way into the mainboard. Crashing Tide is great pseudo-removal, and it can be used to save your own creatures in a pinch (Unsummon is cheaper, but doesn't draw you a card) or be used to abuse ETB triggers. Of course, Naturalize is a sideboard staple as well, and Panharmonicon could lead to some ridiculous plays. Swift Warden is effectively Defense on a stick, and is still a merfolk. Seafloor Oracle could be used as extra draw if you see yourself doing lots of combat damage. Unfortunately, is lacking in permanent removal, and there's not much you can do about that, outside of splashing for Fatal Push and similar. However, you do have the advantage of playing counterspells such as Negate, Essence Scatter, and Spell Pierce. Finally, another "lord" effect for you is Metallic Mimic, which also synergizes well with Hadana's Climb  Flip.

Hopefully these suggestions help, and if you have any questions, feel free to let me know!

QuantumSkies on my first deck

It's hard to critique for no one knows what cards you own outside of these, but why play Woodland Stream?

Argy on Merfolk Buff deck!

If it were me, I'd do this:

4x Botanical Sanctum
4x Forest
3x Hashep Oasis
6x or 7x Island
4x Unclaimed Territory

Maybe 21 lands, but I feel that 20 is a little too few.

I would also think about this:

-1x Curious Obsession
-1x or -2x Path of Discovery
-2x Enter the Unknown

+1x or +2x Land
+3x Winged Temple of Orazca

Use Woodland Stream if you can't afford Botanical Sanctum.

I think you actually have too few Merfolk, now.

If you are able to, I would cut the Non-Creature spells down to at least 12.

10 would be even better.

I would like to see some Blossoming Defense, and Heroic Intervention in the Sideboard.

Ruffigan on Species Gorger - Pauper EDH

Here are some changes I would make:

The first changes are because I personally think instant speed interaction is better than it being limited to your turn. Second is because Path of Ancestry is strictly better even though it only helps with one creature. Third is because I think Theft of Dreams will be more useful overall. Fourth changes are to implement a new combo with Cloud of Faeries: use the same combo as Drake but if you have two of those enchantments or one with Simic Growth Chamber it will produce unlimited mana.

Besides that, I would maybe find a way to work in Mystic Remora. For beats you could add Executioner's Hood. I'll think about it some more.

Botanical Sanctum is much better than Woodland Stream. It's more expensive, but pays off a lot. Replace the Cancel with the superior Disallow or Admiral's Order. The Jace planeswalker should be replaced with a Nissa, Steward of Elements, Nissa, Genesis Mage, or even Nissa, Nature's Artisan (the ultimate is overpowered with smaller merfolk tokens). Great deck FoxyMegan.

Love your deck! I think a quick and easy way to upgrade would be moving into . Tetzimoc, Primal Death is a dino that keeps things under control pretty nicely. This could probably take the place of some number of River's Rebuke and/or Baral's Expertise. It will also assist in Migration 2nd turn, which is super important.

Ifnir Deadlands is my choice desert for budget.

It feels like this could benefit with sweepers/control big time. Golden Demise SB and Tetzimoc MB seems safe to me. Deadlands and options like Fatal Push could see a place somewhere in the 75.

The mana base could quickly support heavy black if wanted. 4x Woodland Stream seems poor because of the tutors in the deck already.

Finally Ramunap Excavator might be something here. It could also be the "card draw" that's needed.

I could have been more specific in regard to your lands.

I thought something like this:

4x Botanical Sanctum
6x Forest
6x Island
4x Unclaimed Territory
2x Woodland Stream or 2x Aether Hub

Your mana is a little slow.

Not sure if it's a budget thing but Botanical Sanctum is much better than Woodland Stream.

I wouldn't mind seeing two more lands, as you are often mana screwed on Turn 4, when you want to start casting your bigger threats.

The biggest challenges for this deck are against ones that can get big Creatures on to the field from Turn 3 and onwards, like Stompy Whompy Dinos and Control decks, like Flame-Chained.

Since those decks outpace yours by targetting your Creatures, and board wiping, some Blossoming Defense and Heroic Intervention in the Sideboard would be more useful than extra copies of your Creatures.

I would try this:


1x Herald of Secret Streams
1x Jade Bearer
1x Jungleborn Pioneer
1x Kumena's Speaker
1x Merfolk Mistbinder
1x Mist-Cloaked Herald
1x River Sneak


3x Blossoming Defense
4x Heroic Intervention

You can play around with this numbers, but I would not go lower than three copies of each.

Hope that helps.
