Looks like a fun deck. I see you're pretty dedicated to the faerie theme which is rad, but I think if you wanted to improve the deck power-wise you could swap out some of the high-cost creatures for evasive 1-drops like Slither Blade, Mist-Cloaked Herald, Gudul Lurker, etc. The more 1-drops you have, the higher your odds to play 1 on turn 1 and 2 on turn 2, then you will be primed to make 3 faerie tokens when Halsin drops on turn 4.

You might consider these cards too: Bident of Thassa, Edric, Spymaster of Trest, Coastal Piracy, Toski, Bearer of Secrets, Reconnaissance Mission, Ohran Frostfang, Druids' Repository, Storm the Citadel

Cryptolith Rite, Nature's Will, Druids' Repository, and [Bear Umbra] will give repeatable combats. Nature's Will is a bit expensive, so keep Song of Freyalise instead. You can remove Battle for Bretagard, Goblin War Drums, and Mask of Avacyn to use the other three enchantments if repeatable combats is your goal. Otherwise, here are some other great additions:

Cathars' Crusade will make HUGE creatures very quickly. Brave the Sands gives the vigilance needed to take advantage of Cryptolith Rite or have blockers. Impact Tremors will cause lots of pain over time. Raiders' Spoils card draw on steroids. Something you are SORELY lacking.

Kaya, Geist Hunter a great addition that will mostly be used for her -2 ability. Rhythm of the Wild is a good card to be replaced since most of your creatures will be tokens, anyways. If you don't go with Kaya, Cathars' Crusade would probably be a better replacement for Rhythm of the Wild.

Trollbred Guardian and Hamza, Guardian of Arashin requires +1/+1 counters but you don't have very many +1/+1 counters in the deck to take advantage of this. You can remove them and instead use Mindblade Render and Oakhame Adversary for card draw. You need card draw.

Replace Mardu Shadowspear with Brutal Hordechief

Usher of the Fallen and Imperious Perfect are fairly underwhelming. Imperious Perfect is a little better, but I'd at least replace Usher of the Fallen with Rhys the Redeemed. Honestly, I'd use Ogre Battledriver over Imperious Perfect.

Rubblebelt Raiders is nice, but Champion of Lambholt will make your creatures unlockable just as fast.

Tuya Bearclaw and Hamletback Goliath get big, but they can be chumped VERY easily. Lovisa Coldeyes will buff all your tokens that are harder to chump. You could maybe keep the Hamletback Giant, but Zurgo Helmsmasher or Samut, Voice of Dissent is a good choice in your deck if you decide not to.

Blaring Captain and Blaring Recruiter are also very underwhelming. Chief of the Edge can easily replace the captain, and the recruit can be replaced be literally anything (my vote would be for Impact Tremors if you haven't added it already).

You have A LOT of mana ramp in your deck, but your lacking card draw and removal. I'd maybe remove the Diamonds and add two or three mana rocks that tap for one of any color. That'll give your deck 10-11 forms of mana ramp. If you add three, that'll give room for two forms of card draw. Reconnaissance Mission, Bident of Thassa, Skullclamp, and Vanquisher's Banner are great options.

Instead of Fracture, I recommend Despark. Mortify is a better Murder but can also be upgraded by switching to Utter End.

Replace Warped Landscape with Secluded Courtyard.

Be aware that you're sitting at only 30 lands. If you find your have a mana-base problem, I'd take out Radha, Heir to Keld, Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip, or ANY of the previously discussed cards and add 3-5 lands. Out of the lands you should also add, I recommend Savage Lands, Arcane Sanctum, Crumbling Necropolis, Jungle Shrine, Nomad Outpost, Mystic Monastery, Path of Ancestry, and Unclaimed Territory.

I've had fun playing my Alela, Artful Enchantress 1.0 deck.

You can get up some pretty serious defenses from No Mercy, Ghostly Prison, and Sphere of Safety while still remaining active in combat with your tokens. Most opponents won't have enough flyers and you can basically attack at will once you're set up and trigger plenty of card draw with Bident of Thassa and Coastal Piracy.

I'm sure you could improve on my list, I don't own much of a land base so that would be a good place to start upgrading.

So, I don't really like plugging my decks and stuff, but I do have one that uses low cMc creatures and Curiosity effects, and ideally starts attacking on turn 2 every game. I'll put it here, and yeah, the main game play is to use things like Bident of Thassa to gain attacks off small evasive creatures like Siren Stormtamer and then tech it up to double down with things like Duelist's Heritage and Clarion Spirit to make more evasive creatures, more instances of damage, and more card draw off Bident or something like it. It does a lot of damage while setting up combo, which is always nice : ) Part of what I enjoy about playing it is that it really punishes decks that want to sit back and ramp for a while, because that's a lot of decks : )

Also, the commander could definitely be swapped. I just really like cute things, so...

Guerric on Too Many Merfolk!

3 months ago

I have pondered building Kumena many times, and I have some thoughts which I think will help! To begin with, when playing any weenie deck whether merfolk or otherwise, the best thing you can do is just draw boatloads of cards by attacking with small evasive creatures with Coastal Piracy, Bident of Thassa, or Reconnaissance Mission out. These cards will keep your hand flooded with cards and therefore options and you will love them. For this reason, don't sleep on small evasive merfolk like Mist-Cloaked Herald, Slither Blade, and others. Playing Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive will help all your weenies get through. Deeproot Waters is a must play enchantment that will give you tokens for every merfolk you cast, giving you more stuff to do with Kumena. You also want to play more ramp here, and you don't need too many artifacts other than Sol Ring because you are in green. You can add Kodama's Reach, Nature's Lore, Three Visits, Skyshroud Claim, Explosive Vegetation, etc. Dorks like Elvish Mystic are also good here since they ramp Kumena out a turn early. Altogether these can ramp you into game-winning cards like Genesis Wave and Kindred Summons, which will absolutely wreck your opponents.

Sphinxes are such a good one. I kind of like Isperia, Supreme Judge with effects like Siren's Call or Bident of Thassa. I had tried it for a while, and it wasn't amazing, but it did make some big swings sometimes and it does feel good to punish players who are playing, disengage and wait to combo, decks. Blink effects really helped the deck with sphinxes. Blinking a blocker to gain cards off Isperia and then double up on Etb effects was pretty fun. You can even blink Azor, the Lawbringer off Eldrazi Displacer if you want to be mean about it : )

Also, Siren's Call absolutely loves Isochron Scepter and Unwinding Clock if you have creatures to punish with it.
