i considered and still am considering the bestiary. my copy of asceticism is already in use and i like steely resolve for this deck more. I will consider heroic intervention, though I do not need chord of calling since ill be drawing so many cards anyways. What would you cut for cosi's trickster? I cant think of anything thats worse than it. Cavern of souls is a bit out of my budget for right now but would definitely use it.

triton shorestalker is not standard legal. Is it a placeholder for mist-cloaked herald?

VronosArchmage there are very few instant speed ramp spells that are targetable with isochron scepter (it cant target sorceries). I ran it in my inalla wizard tribal deck and was disappointed with its performance, partly because i only really run 2 or 3 targets in the deck for it. I suppose if I were to run more it would be worth it, but I think I will run into a similar problem here. right now i only have two targets, counterspell and cyclonic rift. While I could run more, and probably will run a couple more, i'm not sure how well its ability will function in the deck. I will take it into consideration though! I do want to add more spot removal, and am actually considering some enchantment removal too, like song of the dryads and imprisoned in the moon, but am not sure what to take out. any suggestions for cuts?

Make sure to hit the like button too! I am trying to get the highest rated kumena deck!So, due to my personal habits and preferences, I only have two non merfolks in the deck, and I would like to keep it that way. I do agree forgotten ancient would be great, but he doesnt fit the bill for this deck. Also +1 counters arent a central theme to the deck really, just something "win more" that the deck can do.

I actually find the guildmages very underwhelming in this build. Zameck is really good in token decks, but kumenas ability is already better than his. also, simic guildmage doesnt really do much in this deck either.

As far as wanderwine prophets go, I'm considering it, but i already run it in Inalla. I dont find extra turn effects to be that fun. But I am considering it and do recommend it to people who are not me!

I have had no issue with only 35 lands so far in goldfishing. I might put in one more, but im running two rocks, growing rites, cryptolith rite, 5 ramp spells, and so much draw, that I have no worries about making sure I have enough land, especially because of the low curve.

If you are trying to learn how to play blue, this deck is not the best start. It plays simic, not blue, which is different. there are definitely aspects, but merfolk, and this deck in particular, is a very aggressive, creature based build, whereas blue normally runs a lot more control. I honestly am debating if i should be running counters. Does that make sense?

Let me know if you come up with a list, and make sure you hit the like button!

awesome! I would probably just have a couple enchantments that add unblockable or flying. simple things like aqueous form or spectral flight.

I love the concept of intro decks with each Elder Dino! Its a lot better than my version, where i was attempting to do a half-assed enchantment theme. Have you thought about adding a bit more voltron support?

January 5, 2018 4:28 p.m.

you have 2x of a lot of cards...

Its funny you say that because my deck is at my college and it has actually changed significantly since i last updated this list. a lot of those big creatures are gone and a lot of the cuts you suggested and add ins you suggested i've already done! I will be updating it soon. I don't have the time to asnwer all of your questions this second, but will get to them later in the day!

i added and then took out belligerent brontodon. one of the great parts of doran is that he effects opponents as well, which the brontodon does not do. he never made an impact on the game, and i rarely have issues where doran is out for longer than a turn, but that might just be because of my playgroup not really running much removal. I think im running enough song of the dryads that I don't really have to worry about him. Retribution of the meek was too expensive at the time of buying the deck, and havent shopped for it recently.

All in all, I'm having really significant difficulty making cuts these days because i want as many treefolk as possible, and some guys, like the dinos, just dont cut it. however, zetalpa will probably be added.

I like the look of this! Let me know what you think of mine!

@jokerjake75, i agree with all of those choices and a lot of them were actually ones I was also considering taking out. Thanks for the advice! I think i will keep the shapers though. I will consider creeping renaissance as well.

@lord_carpetshark, lullmage mentor with all of the tap and untap abilities just lets me have a counterspell always ready. I do however think that i should include some more counterspells.

Jokerjake, I really like a lot of the comments you made, but I can't imagine right now what merfolk I would cut when I'm having difficulty already narrowing it down. any suggestions for cuts in the deck?

Love this concept of a guide. I actually am working on a deck that primarily runs with kumena, but can also run, in order of most effective to least effective, Tishana, Thrasios, and Zegana as alternate commanders if i want to lose synchrony a bit to match other decks. Could I get your thoughts?
