19/01/2023 changes: There have been a few rounds of changes. Removed counterspells to attempt to make the deck to make more fun to play against, sold the Mox Diamond because it's become worth a mint in the last 7 years, added more draw and refocused the deck on creature ETB based interaction instead of something like Oblivion Ring. It's a good card but I don't get the value that I could get out of a Fiend Hunter. You know where I'm going with this. I've also added more mana fixing to the land base and adjusted colours for the new balance.

king-saproling Thrumming stone would definitely work well with Persistent Petitioners and I have debated seeking out that card in paper. Sadly though it is a rather pricey card. I would probably purchase a Bruvac the Grandiloquent as a better commander slot before I get Thrumming Stone.

As for Sphinx of the Chimes and Echoing Truth, both of those options are cheap purchases and make for good card draw and protection synergy with petitioners. I will definitely have to keep my eye out for those in paper. Thank you for the great suggestions!

Hey, you're welcome.

If you're new to sideboarding then some advice is to start, build a sideboard of 15 cards that are good in broad matchups: control, midrange and aggro. These three archetypes can be considered super archetypes as most decks go into one of these. For control matchups more counterspells, noncreature removal, creature protection, Planeswalker hate. For midrange other creature removal, a creature board wipe. For aggro a bigger creature that's hard to remove, creature protection, some life gain.

You want to think about what strategies are going to be difficult for you to beat with Merfolk and use your sideboard to help against these strategies. You want to be attacking with Merfolk therefore opponent strategies that put a lot of creatures onto the battlefield as blockers especially token creatures can be difficult. Board wipes wreck little tribal creatures. Merfolk are small creatures, bigger creatures can be a problem. 4x Swords to Plowshares main deck helps a lot against big blockers, but some times you need an effect that removes more than one creature.

In your main deck you have several cards that I would consider sideboard cards, not cards that belong in the main deck because they're narrow. Wash Out is a hate card that belongs in the sideboard because you might be against a blue opponent and then it also bounces your Merfolk. However, it can be a game winning effect against a nonblue opponent who has a lot of blockers. Disenchant doesn't do anything if opponent isn't playing a problematic artifact or enchantment. Angelsong can deny a big swing of damage from attackers by opponent and then you swing back at them on your turn, but you don't need this effect main deck even with cycling.

If you know about the decks that you're against such as a playgroup of friends who you always battle then you can be much more specific in what cards go in the sideboard. Cards that are good against decks your opponents are playing. Cards in the sideboard can be much narrower for only certain matchups if you know of those matchups and are against that type of deck a lot.

If you can use some Merfolk as sideboard cards then that will help your strategy of tribal Merfolk. Tidebinder Mage is for against green or red midrange or aggro. Hullbreacher against control. Kopala, Warden of Waves can make it more difficult for opponent to target a Merfolk you control. Sygg, River Guide can protect from chosen color and make that Merfolk unblockable against that color. Master of Waves is great against red, having protection from red and against aggro it can create a token army of blockers. Judge of Currents can be a life gaining Merfolk to bring in against aggro.

Example of a budget tribal Merfolk sideboard:

Have you heard of the term "hate card"? A hate card is most of the time found in the sideboard because it's very good against a certain color/colors. The good hate cards are lower mana cost because then you're getting amazing value for the cost against that color. Tidebinder Mage is a Merfolk example of a hate card against green or red creatures, but you don't play it main deck because if you're not against an opponent who has a green or red creature then it doesn't do much and there's better two drop Merfolk to play. Blue Elemental Blast is an example of a powerful hate card against red. Celestial Purge is white's hate against black or red.

A hate card doesn't have to be against a certain color, you might want it to shut down an entire deck strategy. Grafdigger's Cage is hate against reanimation strategies where opponent is bringing any creature from their graveyard onto the battlefield. Pithing Needle can shut down a certain card such as a Planeswalker or anything nonland that has an activated ability. Echoing Truth can wreck tokens because all token creatures of the same types are the same name and when a token is bounced it ceases to exist in the game.

Henchman31: First of all, unfortunately you really need 12 or more Petitioners for it work right. The more the better, within reason.

Secondly, also unfortunately, Gush is actually banned and needs to come out. So ideally just add four more Petitioners and you'd be good to go.

As for a sideboard, Tormod's Crypt or Relic of Progenitus for graveyard decks (which are good sideboard cards for ANY deck, really). Hydroblast against burn/mono red. Echoing Truth for extra removal and for fighting token decks. Boomerang to bounce permanents... and then Counterspell them when the opponent tries to recast it. And lastly if you need more counterspells, try something like Deprive.

Hope that helps too, now on to the last one...

michaelqdoherty Why do you prefer the Dragon Fodder over Goblin Instigator? They are very similar, but instigator is better facing Echoing Truth and Echoing Decay
