Hey, I saw you played against my list. I think you played it out pretty much like I would have, I think my sideboard could use a lot of help against this deck, but without really knowing where the meta is going, that might take some time. I played Naya Dinos in my prerelease today and boy was it fun, I'm considering running it in Standard and I'll definitely use your list to help me if I do. +1 from me!

Jimmy_Chinchila Thank you for suggesting Heroic Intervention, I completely forgot that card existed. As for Growing rites and Tishana, i feel they're both too slow. For the most part, the deck actually has a lot of card draw. I also don't think the deck really has anything to do with the large amount of mana that Itlimoc can give.

Shirubaurufu I am aware of that, also not being able to reveal it for Silvergill can sometimes put you behind, only reason I'm not running him at a 4, Elite seems just overall better than Mimic but I still want to run both.

Shirubaurufu you are definitely right about not standing up to the bigger decks, my past couple of FNMs have been on the slightly sad side.

Shirubaurufu There are so many 2 drops in the tribe, and honestly the all seem strong. It seems weird to think that before Rivals, the best 2 drops in the tribe are now some of the less good ones.

Shagoth When I first saw Mist-Cloaked Herald I immediately knew it would be good. I remember when Ixalan first game out and people were playing around with Merfolk, I saw a lot of Slither Blade despite it not even being a Merfolk.

Hashdaddy I love spellpierce, it together with Admiral's order gives you a lot of control over your opponent, i don't know if i would run Expel from Orazca over unsummon though. I will definitely look into it though.

Cloudypie I haven't, no. I did used to run Tempest Caller before Rivals, but Herald of Secret Streams seemed like the better option. Now though without Herald and with less of a +1/+1 counter theme, I might consider running it again.

Look's good, I really like River's Rebuke as a finisher.

Unsummon is definitely good, I did have it in the sideboard but removed it for Kumena. Will probably make it's way back in once things have stabilized a bit.

I_am_not_Batman I'm inclined to agree with you, in Ixalan the only thing making Merfolk somewhat work was the +1/+1 counters on them making them unblockable, 8 lords and Kumena's last ability aren't enough to make Herald of Secret Streams work. Unless tomorrow we get a Merfolk that makes the counter build more viable, I think Seafloor Oracle is going to replace Herald, at least in my list.

xoorath very true! I'm liking the token strategy a lot more now

Thanks swearwolf, I play a Merfolk deck in Standard currently and I found that Deeproot Waters is great with River Sneak with the right hand and is also great with Metallic Mimic, doubling the token's power and toughness and becoming unblockable with a Herald of Secret Streams. Most of the time though, Deeproot feels like a dead draw because it doesn't do anything the turn you play it. If i can play a few River Sneaks on turns 2 and 3, turn 4 Deeproot Waters is basically the game if you play a Kumena's Speaker with it. Most of the time the deck doesn't do that though. With Rivals coming soon, I'm very excited to try everything to try and make Merfolk work. I think Deeproot Waters may actually be strong enough with Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca. Thank you for the advice!
