Harbinger of the Tides

Creature — Merfolk Wizard

You may cast Harbinger of the Tides as though it had flash if you pay more to cast it. (You may cast it at any time you could cast an instant.)

When Harbinger of the Tides enters the battlefield, you may return target tapped creature an opponent controls to its owner's hand.

Great build! Have you considered a similar build using Mist-Cloaked Herald or Triton Shorestalker or River Sneak?

For a board, I think Merfolk Trickster, Harbinger of the Tides, Kopala, Warden of Waves, Wizard's Retort, and Witness Protection are all great options.

Omniscience_is_life, some examples of how the 5 modern-playable tribes operate, to give you an idea of what you’re up against:

The above decks can all win their games by turn 4 or 5, most of them giving the opponent constant grief while doing so.

As a further example, Slivers are not a modern-viable tribe, because just throwing creatures down on the board and hoping for the best doesn’t cut it in the modern environment.

I think you need to consider what you’re actually getting out of Dryads, and whether you want this to be a competitive deck, or a casual/meme deck.

Merfolk wise,

Kopala, Warden of Waves and Harbinger of the Tides are probably the best utility. Otherwise there are a few merfolk lords. You just need to figure out how many merfolk togiant sea creatures you want.

I went for Benthic Biomancer over Cursecatcher because I feel like the Catcher falls off very quickly after T2, while the Biomancer's loot ability let's you dig for value later in the game plus it becomes a slightly bigger body. I will playtest the Catcher again though. The last time I found the (1) tax to not do very much in the recent metagame, espacially when it leaves me with one card down.

I enjoy Glasspool Mimic over Phantasmal Image because I really hate my 4/4 copy (pumped by lords) being bolted for 3 and still die. My area is full of burn and prowess decks. I aggree however, that 3 cmc for only being able to target my own creatures can be a too high cost in the long run.

I really like Merrow Reejerey -> Coralhelm Commander, I will definitely try that in a 2-2 split.

I chose Brazen Borrower over Harbinger of the Tides because
A) I can cast the bounce part for UU at instant speed in my opp. turn and
B) because it's not a Merfolk and thus won't be hit by Plague Engineer
Harbinger seems to be the more aggressive option, so that is up to personal preference imo.

Oboro, Palace in the Clouds is a great suggestion, I kinda forgot about that tbh. Would you goe for 1 or for 2 of them?

Not sure if this helps, but you should only need 1 Kira, Great Glass-Spinner in Merfolk. You can substitute 1 Kira for 1 Merrow Reejerey.

I would also suggest removing the 4 Opt for 1 Merfolk Trickster, 1 Merrow Reejerey, and 2 Vapor Snag. You could also add in some Harbinger of the Tides, if you so choose.

Alternatively, you could also look into 8 seas variations and run 4 Sea's Claim along with Spreading Seas. It’s a really fun way to mess with your opponent.

All and all looks like a good starting point for Merfolk.

Augur of Bolas Mistcaller (SB) Quench Fae of Wishes (surprisingly at 0.19 tix atm) Harbinger of the Tides (also surprisingly cheap at 0.10 tix atm) Merfolk Trickster (in response to troublesome creatures) Naban, Dean of Iteration (if you got lotsa triggers) Tidebinder Mage SB against red and green Nimble Obstructionist Elite Arcanist + Dissolve
