I have put Seafloor Oracle and Herald of Secret Streams in the same deck, a playset of both. It threw my mana curve all over the place, but if you get both in play, it would be overpowered.

I havent tried Sygg, River Cutthroat, but I doubt I will. There are much better ways of drawing cards and the two drop slot is very cluttered at the moment.

To help deal with removal, I will probably include Kopala, Warden of Waves over Prime Speaker Zegana. There is not much action in the three drop slot, and this fits the bill.

Also a few Mana Leaks and another Kopala in the board could help deal with decks running more sweepers and/or removal.

Thanks for the comments! Not sure what sideboard cards are the best in blue-green. Perhaps some input on that would be helpful!

I find Prime Speaker Zegana bit too hard to cast but with all the card draw (Seafloor Oracle, Silvergill Adept) I can manage it and when it does it is great. But I agree it usually does come out too late as it is very hard to play a land every turn.

Please don't get me started in Cursecatcher. It is one of my least favourite cards (to play with). Turn 1 you play it, and the disruption is not huge, I would usually rather a Kumena's Speaker. After about two more turns its ability becomes irrelevant. Opponents can now cast a spell and then not worrying about paying the 1, as the Cursecatcher will most likely be at least a 2/2 so they are paying a single mana to kill a 2/2. Overall I would rather Kumena's Speaker or even Mist-Cloaked Herald.

I have played with playsets of all the two mana lords before and I just end up with too many in my hand. Merfolk Mistbinder is not as mana intensive as the others as it is quite likely that I played a green mana on turn 1. Thanks for the comments though! What do you think should replace Prime Speaker Zegana?

My budget does not quite reach to Cavern of Souls! If it did, it would be in this deck, same with Aether Vial. What are your views on Prime Speaker Zegana? It is a bit off curve, but it is very powerful, especially if I have a big Forerunner of the Heralds.

Why is Silvergill Adept is not in this deck? I can see your argument if you say Merfolk Branchwalker is better, but I play 3 of both in all of my decks. Also Seafloor Oracle is a great turn 4 play - and it works very well with Herald of Secret Streams. Ive seen a lot of the merfolk decks since RIX has come out, and I do like this version of the archetype. I never thought about including Rishkar!b

Also Tishana, Voice of Thunder is probably too much mana. It would completely mess up your curve.

Apologies, I overlooked the Silvergill Adept in the deck. It is a solid card to play turn 2. Also Merfolk Branchwalker serves a similar purpose, just to throw it out there in case you'd overlooked it.

Their is no draw in this deck. I love the fact that you put Forerunner of the Heralds in as no one has even considered it (even though they are desperate for a way to play Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca in every game). Chart a Course is a good draw spell and is popular in merfolk, but I like Seafloor Oracle. Quite reliable if you have a River Sneak in play, and can be very beneficial if you include a few Mist-Cloaked Heralds to maximise the card draw. But you dont have to take the advice on the Mist-Cloaked Herald as Im playing it in modern and just love the card. Overall this is a great deck, the one drawback is the fact there is no draw. Also PLEASE dont use Jade Bearer, it is AWFUL. Perhaps Admiral's Order in the side to deal with control, specifically Settle the Wreckage.

Cherished Hatchling will be okay

Nice build. Personally I don't like Hostage Taker as it is such a magnet for removal. I think possibly another Chandra, Torch of Defiance and another Vraska's Contempt would be better.

Quick question: Would you be including the new Angrath planeswalker when rivals comes out?

January 3, 2018 9 a.m.

Also the new draw spell for three with ascend is ok

How do you feel about the new Angrath planeswalker? Would you include it in this deck?
