Standard* Competitive Counters G/U (Simic) Merfolk Tempo Tribal



Hello guys !

Let me present you finaly my first attempt to do Merfolk competitive deck, that (hopefully) can already do something in duels.

This fishy deck is tribal combination of hexproof, unblockable and decent counter/token support. I choose to get rid of Explores because i have mainly low mana creatures and spells in my deck so potential excess of lands is not in my opinion needed and useful, but if you disagree i will gladly hear your point of view.

Opened for any suggestion or critisism !Thank you and enjoy !

Is a good deck, but honestly i dont like the Kumena's speaker. I prefer the Deeproot Champion, and 4x Negate into the x4 essence scatter.Because you need to counter those massive removals like fumigate or settle the wreckage.

I would like to recommend to you the Mist-cloaked herald + Curious obsession , that is basically the Kumena Speaker but with no chance to be blocked and a lot of cards on draw.

Deeproot Waters 3 mana cost is too slow, and not so powerfull at 3 mana. Try Swift warden, is a really good card that allows ur merefolk to stay alive with a solid 3/3.To conclude the game think about Tempest caller or River's rebucke.Enjoy

behemoth94 Wow ! Thank you for this inspiration of Curious obsession. Thats pretty nasty!

You are probably right about Kumena's Speaker i will put it out.

About Deeproot Champion.. i dont know :D i kinda dont like him even he can pretty well play with those spells.

Need for Counters to stay safe is certain. About Deeproot Waters you are right, but im still hesitating because it saved my game many times Thank you for your suggestions i really appreciate it !

Thanks to buddy :=) I m looking for a merfolk deck too so i like to discuss about :) it seems that no one has seen the Obsession-Mist combo, to me is a great idea of aggro-draw deck. A very powerfull thing :)
