Kazuhahaha on High Tide - Modern Merfolk Primer

Kumena's Speaker should come out for Phantasmal Image to copy your P/T buffs. the counter spells don't really fit in an aggro deck. you'll be casting creatures every turn and not have mana up to counter with, and you'll empty your hand too fast to play Force of Negation for free. instead you can use Collected Company to help swarm the field and Aquitect's Will to force an island onto your opponent before swinging with islandwalk. Tide Shaper can come out for 4 Misty Rainforest and -3 Merrow Reejerey and -1 Svyelun of Sea and Sky for +2 Kopala, Warden of Waves and the 4th copies of Collected Company / Aquitect's Will (after taking out the counter spells for the first 3 copies of each).

also no need to worry about Boil at all. nobody really uses that anymore, so you're free to just use the better lands like Misty Rainforest and Breeding Pool . Barkchannel Pathway  Flip would also be a good addition.

i'd recommend a few untapped blue sources that aren't islands just to beat out island hate cards like Boil .

Modern merfolk tend to run more nonbasic lands because Boil is, somehow, modern legal. More nonbasics also allow you to run Quicksilver Fountain which, alongside Oboro, Palace in the Clouds can turn all of the opponents lands into islands for good.

If you're interrested on messing with the opponents lands only for the islandwalk then Aquitect's Will is cheaper than Spreading Seas .

Nice build

I would take out Elspeth, Knight-Errant and Scourge of the Nobilis for card draw engines Akiri, Fearless Voyager and Wyleth, Soul of Steel . The card draw will make a huge difference

Rally the Righteous and Boil could be replaced with Champion of the Flame and Kor Duelist for a more aggressive deck

Isn't Boil mostly just for Dryad of the Ilysian Grove rather than being good in general?

I know that Blood Moon can damage me, but the majority of the time it does what I need to. I also know that Boil can hurt me, but yeah. I'm not so worried about when can through me off a little as what will through off my opponent most.

Xianling69 do you recommend Confounding Conundrum then? Or something else vs Uro?

gatotempo thanks that makes sense. The problem is that sometimes I win fast but other times I don't get the draw I need, so it's not consistently fast or slow :P XD

I am trying to solve the same problem in burn. My conclusion has been that slower decks should play Boil, because it costs more but is, in general, more effective, but faster decks run Blood Moon, because they can win in the time it takes for the opponent to remove it. Hopefully this is helpful.

Lowenstein on Blood Moon or Boil??

I'm still not yet very familiar playing against Uro and Titan decks. I play a UR combo deck and am trying to decide what do sideboard here. I currently have a couple Blood Moon, but I am wondering if Boil is better. I do know that lots of decks sideboard Boil, but also lots of decks mainboard Blood Moon. So as a combo deck vs Uro and Titan, what do you recommend?
