Murphy77 Deckling

Started collecting and playing MTG in September 2015. Still very much a nooby. I have a limited number of pre-origons cards and am trying to build a competitive deck/s with cards that I do already have.

Make that ME Pointed Ears - unexpected name clash.

Having tried to build something similar, I am still undecided between Merfolk friends and family, which slowly builds towards having unblockable land creatures with a heavy attack, and Pointed Ears which uses a mix of elves and merfolk to build an army of unblockable creatures. Your deck seems to be somewhere between these two decks but, somehow seems to be lacking synergy between cards.

Deeproot Champion seems to be a new Managorger Hydra and really wants to find a home in a control deck that contains lots of cheap instants and sorceries. I just don't see it doing much in an aggro creature-summon deck.

Rishkar, Peema Renegade and Herald of Secret Streams combine nicely, and could become rather mean if you could flicker Rishkar, Peema Renegade.

Tempest Caller is very situational and you need it in your hand at a critical stage in the game - which seems rather unlikely. At best it is a win-more card - if you have control of the field, your win might be more dramatic.

The challenge will be to identify weaknesses in this deck and find better alternatives (which may not be the same cards that I used in my version of this deck)

Make that Merfolk friends and family. If I try to link to f&f, it reverts to ff and targets a different deck.

I have been working on a similar deck - see ff - and added Rashmi, Eternities Crafter for added card advantage.

I like the combination of Durable Handicraft and Vanquisher's Banner. I know that Metallic Mimic and Anointed Procession are more-or-less standard in a cat tribal deck, but you have a reasonable number of buffs for your kittens. Nissa, Steward of Elements would allow you to scry, speed up your landfall and help to summon creatures, but I cant see anything obvious that you could replace (except maybe Watchers of the Dead, which seems like more of a side-board card).

Having started with a similar deck, I have moved toward a B/W Angelic Torture deck that bounces Gonti, Lord of Luxury and cards like Kitesail Freebooter to get the ETB effect each turn.

I had a look at this deck and loved the concept. As I looked deeper, I however, found that I would want to change out a number of cards that you used (getting rid of Bontu's Last Reckoning, swapping Cast Out for Compulsory Rest and getting more value from Dreamstealer). I took this deck and made changes - which led to further changes, etc. and ended up with Stealing Sanity.

This might just work better as a Red/white deck. The reason that I say this is Call for Unity. If you replaced Noxious Gearhulk and Oketra the True with Angel of Condemnation, once per turn you could blink something like Deadeye Harpooner to kill an opponents creature and give all of your own creatures +1/+1, and also trigger Hidden Stockpile. Mega-buffs on your own creatures could provide an extra win-con. You could replace Fatal Push with something like Compulsory Rest. I would then tend to go with 2 Anointer Priest and 2 Deadeye Harpooner, or even lose a couple of lands ( or a Fatal Push/Ghirapur Orrery) for extra creatures.

Tried a very similar approach in (Just for fun) Weenies to Zombies. I just get the feeling that the high cmc of your angels might slow you down. See what you think of my deck and side-board

You may be relying too much on your discard cards to fill the graveyard. you may be able to achieve the same with much less money invested in cards with something like (Just for fun) Weenies to Zombies

Have a look at Kittens Angel (XLN)... If you were to add Anointed Procession, you increase your token summon. My approach would be to buff a flurry of 1/1 kittens and give your opponent cat-scratch fever.
