This is a merfolk tribal deck that relies on the many tribal lords and Progenitor Mimic/Followed Footsteps to build a big army of super strong merfolk. The rest of the cards should support the theme of card draw, islandwalk, and tribal shenanigans. Advice is very appreciated. (I realize Doubling Season would be a good card here, but $60 is too much imo).

Seahunter? It can even search for Merrow Commerce if you want to.

He's part of a cycle with Moggcatcher and Skyshroud Poacher if you or anyone else that sees this comment is interested in Goblin/Elves tribal.

Did not know about that, thanks a lot I think he would be a good replacement for Merrow Harbinger.

Song of the Dryads and Imprisoned in the Moon are both very excellent removal in these colours.

You might consider adding Kruphix, God of Horizons and Descendants' Path.

Thanks for the advice superman101 and budlaorf! I think I will be removing the +1/+1 counter theme (Deeproot Champion, Herald of Secret Streams, and Shapers of Nature) for Imprisoned in the Moon, Song of the Dryads and Kruphix, God of Horizons.

Forkbeard, thanks a lot, I appreciate it!

Cosi's Trickster, Deepchannel Mentor because most of your creatures are blue.Sage of Fables, Streambed Aquitects, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Wanderwine Prophets and Chord of Calling it is great for tapping out all your creatures and making wake thrasher huge. just some thoughts.

What about Biovisionary with your copying cards?

In addition to The_Grape suggesting Biovisionary, you should be using Master Biomancer as both combo hilariously with Progenitor Mimic.

Consider adding just more members of the tribe. I'm findning that as I playtest I just don't hit as many merfolk as I might like. Just my 2 cents. Love the deck. +1 Upvote!

I really like the build. +1. With the ability to give all your Merfolk Islandwalk, you might consider adding Mystic Compass as a wincon.

Might be too pricey but Cavern of Souls always great in tribal builds. Stoneforge Masterwork also perhaps. Asceticism really good too

Thanks Jimmy_Chinchila! Those are some great suggestions! As you mentioned I left Cavern of Souls out because of the price tag, I missed Stoneforge Masterwork during my searches so thank you for that, and Asceticism is another staple that should work great in here.
