Said on why is they ......


connorbitw Hey man, you should try running Azusa, Lost but Seeking and Courser of Kruphix, both speed up land ramps like decks such as these. Also try looking to getting some Fetch lands and Shock lands. They're super helpfull in decks like this as well considering fetch lands can give you that extra land fall per turn. I would also try adding Oracle of Mul Daya she too would help your land ramp. I would also consider Omnath, Locus of Rage, he might be the strongest card for a deck like this. In general omnath is the way to go. Especially if you tech in Verdant Sun's Avatar you could literally gain like 40-50 life a turn. It would be awesome in this. I would try Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger. There are so many different techs but these are the main ones i would look into.

Said on Ez Merfolk Win...


Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca Is better played in 4 of's or even 3. He works well because you can tap all your creatures down at the end of your opponents turn for his effects. You can have an additional card or you can have them all get +1/+1, along with Song of Freyalise for the early game big creatures. Honestly i would be playing more of them. I have an indepth deck over it and its pretty good. I've topped a few times with during FNM events and it brings out the hurt to most. Now i tweek it every now and then to figure out how the meta is changing so its one i keep up to date pretty regularly. I would also try out Merfolk Trickster has flash and comes in as a 2/2 that taps a creature and renders its effects useless so it stops on big plays right now such as Goblin Chainwhirler and many more. Its a decent tech right now. Also just running straight up merfolks for the swarm i would look into Deeproot Waters as well. It'll help speed up your swarm and gives out more options for Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca and helps out with the +1/+1 gain for that early game special.

The deck I run is U/G MERFOLK control and its super fun. Take and look and if its something you'd be interested in its fairly cheap and its quite nice.

thekeithmacdonald, I have a similar deck build and i'm running World Shaper and rushing Demon of Catastrophes, along with Song of Freyalise it makes for a great 7/7 swinging early game and still have the redunency if you don't win at that point. It's a super fun deck and i really like it. glad to see someone who has the same idea as me except way more indepth lol

This is mine, so if you want to compare and have any suggestions it would be nice. Muldrotha's one way Ticket (feedback)

I'm pretty much trying to shut down any smaller creatures from ramping. But vraska's is a good card to main board. I'm just trying to figure out what to take out. I might take out the Rite's honestly. They're good but no necessary for a win con.

Annexus I'm playing the Fungal Infection mainboard rather then vraska's due to the little one drops in game right now. If they swing with a 2/2 like Captain Lannery Storm, Fungel infection breaks that off with a -1/-1 and a free saproling. or if i need an extra sac for either the Demon of Catastrophes or Rite of Belzenlok
