With the recent reprints and new merfolk cards introduced in the Ixalan block, I figured it's about time for me to freshen up this decklist. I am converting this deck back to mono-blue instead of splashing white like it has been for the past 3 years. My reasoning for removing white is UW Merfolk tends to struggle a bit in terms of managing life due to all of the fetches and shocks it runs and you will see this often when splashing any color. In future updates, this deck will be formatted to discuss anything and everything fish has to offer down to the playstyle, card choices, splash options, as well as budget options to consider. The decklist itself is going to be pretty standard in terms of what a competitive merfolk decklist should look like and if you disagree then feel free to comment below because the list is subject to change. Suggestions are always appreciated and will be considered, thank you.
