Seems like the mana base could be lower at the expense of Glorybringer. He is the only expensive card in the deck. Otherwise I would think you could go down to 21 lands. I would go -1 Glorybringer, -1 of each basic land, +2 Lightning Strike, and +1 Honored Crop-Captain or Glory-Bound Initiate.

That's my 2 cents. Looks like a very fast and cool deck though! +1

I think red is going to be phased out as the spliced in color for control decks, and white is going to be phased in. The main reason: Carnage Tyrant. He survives Hour of Devastation. In fact, he beats my entire deck other than Bontu's Last Reckoning. I might need to add in white for Fumigate or Hour of Revelation. In fact, it might even be worth swapping out black for white.

You're probably right that Kefnet's Last Word isn't necessary and taps me out when I don't want to be tapped out. That will probably kick the dust.

I'm actually a really big fan of Torment of Hailfire. If I don't kick out black, I will probably add that in.

Thanks for the comments!

jason31502 that's a good callout. The biggest problem this deck has are with vehicles and creatures with hexproof (especially that dang Bristling Hydra.

Bontu's Last Reckoning is there to stop hexproof guys, and Kefnet's Last Word is there to stop vehicles (and other big creatures). I'm open to suggestions on other ways to stop those guys. Any thoughts?

This probably isn't what you want to hear, but I would take out Liliana, Death Wielder because of the high cost. I agree with xxCopperheadx that you should have 4 copies of Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons. And I would quad up on the Defiant Greatmaw and Hapatra's Mark too.

Also, his suggestions of Ammit Eternal and Fatal Push are good. Another fun one to think about adding in is Tenacious Hunter.

Another thought is that Cartouche of Strength is very good, and would help you replay Trial of Ambition.

Good luck!

Thanks for the info guys. I didn't know you had to choose one from a list!

But the trials just say "When a Cartouche enters....", so I don't get why it wouldn't work. Just curious :)

Looks cool! Merfolk is a fun card type. My only thought is that the mana base looks a little low. Your mana curve is relatively low, but you have a lot of creatures that cost 3-5. I'd bump it up to 23 just to be safe, and ditch the Attune with Aether. I like the +1/+1 idea with it! If you can afford to, I'd say quad up on the Verdurous Gearhulk.

I see what you're saying. The word 'choose' indicates that you can't make one up, but must choose from available creature types. But how do you know what those are? It's obviously not just ones on the battlefield. Maybe ones that are in the meta? If I were playing Standard, could I choose Ape because it has been made before, even though it's not in Standard?

Can't you just name whatever you want? That's what I always thought. So I can't say Microwave for the creature type since there aren't any of them in the game?

Hey guys... so if you played Arcane Adaptation and named "Cartouche" would that work? Because that would be the best thing... ever. Trial of Ambition... play a creature... Trial of Ambition... etc.

The only things Compulsory Rest doesn't help against are vehicles and Gideon. You could sideboard in Cast Out to protect against noncreatures. Anyway, good luck!

Your only big issue is aggro. Oketra's Last Mercy is only helpful if the opponent isn't doing 10+ damage on T3, which aggro might be. Then you lose. Sunbird's Invocation is too expensive for what it is. You already win if you get to T7, T8, etc. You need to make it there. I would take both of those out for:

4x Magma Spray

3x Compulsory Rest

Just to make sure you get to T7+

My 2 cents! I like the deck... very fun!
