Merfolk on a Budget (<$130)

Modern Aggro Budget Merfolk Mono-Blue Tribal

L1NX

Maybeboard


Description

Turn their lands into islands and then swing in with islandwalk for lethal damage with the help of your lords, Master of the Pearl Trident and Lord of Atlantis.

If you don't take the price of the sideboard and lands into account, this deck will cost you just under $130.

Obviously this deck is very weak against Choke as it only runs basic lands but if people in your local FNM meta run it then you could do one of three things:

  1. Spend $$$ on Cavern of Souls, Minamo, School at Water's Edge, Oboro, Palace in the Clouds , Mutavaults, etc.

  2. Not play against them

  3. Run more counters spells to stop them from getting it out (Remand is not recommended as it returns it to their hand meaning they can just play it next turn)

I recommend 2 Dismember over Turn Aside

@doozy Thanks for the suggestion. I've been playing the deck at my LGS and I found that turn aside usually sits in my hand so I was planning on removing it and Dismember is a great choice.

Wanderwine Hub beats Choke too.
