-2x Negate, +2x Remand. Merfolk relies on having card advantage through cards like Remand, Spreading Seas and Silvergill Adept. Negate is a sideboard card at best and doesn't deserve a spot in here. Also, a 4th AEther Vial is necessary. It may seem lame to draw them later in the game but having one in your opening hand ensures that the game will go twice as smooth and increases your win chance by a lot. Those are two minor changes, but will make a big difference. Other than that, the deck looks fun!

hmm maybe, ill have to think about it. Definitely not adding any more Remand, i MIGHT add a 4th AEther Vial though, well see.

i feel like i have enough card draw already, but a 4th aether vial may be good, thanks for your feedback!

I know my deck is a bit "unconventional" for Merfolk, but it really works out great! Cutting down one AEther Vial makes me mulligan less and improves my draws, i use less creatures then other Merfolk decks is why. I replace them with support magic, removal, and counter-spells to balance out the deck. Some people may not agree, but this deck has won me many games in my Meta and at tournaments. Also thanks everyone for the up-votes, almost at 50 now! Enjoy :D

lol nevermind, after much play-testing, i realize that 4 AEther Vials is the way to go. Id rather start with it and draw a second one , then not start with it at all. thanks for the advice everyone!
