Really enjoyed this list, especially Inga and Esika and Elven Chorus. I think I would take out Silvergill Douser for something else stronger. If you want more ideas, check out my Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca deck that I'm working on.

Say I have Vorel of the Hull Clade, Simic Ascendancy, and creature like Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca with a +1/+1 counter on it on the battlefield. If I use Vorel of the Hull Clade's ability to double the counter on Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca, do I also put a growth counter on Simic Ascendancy?

I'm asking because Vorel of the Hull Clade says to double the counter(s) but im not sure if I'm "putting" new counters onto a card to trigger Simic Ascendancy or just increasing existing ones.

Wording on cards can make or break a possible combo and would like to be sure of this before it happens in a game.

So what you're looking for is an aggressive deck with kind of a sea creatures theme led by Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca, with a budget of £40-50 ($50-60, since I'm in that part of the world)? I don't want to build a full deck, since this should be your creation for your wife, but some resources, courtesy of edhrec.com, to check out are




And a general internet search for something like "budget Kumena EDH" should come up with more ideas.

Welcome to the club, Mr-Jolly!

What kind of budget do you want to work with? Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca works very well with cards that let you untap more frequently, like Merrow Commerce and Seedborn Muse. Including Colossal Whale and Sea-Dasher Octopus suggests a more aggressive deck that wants to attack regularly, so if you want to go in that direction, cards like Levitation, Coastal Piracy, and other ways to make your creatures unblockable and attacking more profitable might be useful.

Ultimately, how do you want to win? Are you looking for an aggressive attacking deck, a combo deck, a more defensive control deck, or some combination of those? Merfolk are pretty versatile and flexible, so Kumena has a lot of options available.

So I'm trying to add cards to my inventory and stuff and when I try to add some of the cards from archenemy nicol bolas and explorers of ixalan it says that the variants for those releases don't exist. There's also like no cards from explorers of ixalan variants and I'm pretty sure Ghalta, Primal Hunger doesn't actually exist and neither does Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca. What is up with this?

With permission, or even without, I'm going to take a cue from Last_Laugh and give a little background on my Bant Merfolk thought. Merfolk have a decent tapping/untapping theme, with effects like Lullmage Mentor, Merrow Commerce, and Stonybrook Schoolmaster. Good for , but it leaves out cards like Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca, Glare of Subdual, and Seedborn Muse that would push it to the next level. There aren't really any Bant commanders or partners that support this strategy, and the only Bant Merfolk commander is Tuvasa the Sunlit. I've been wanting to build this for a while, but I've never been satisfied with the available options. It doesn't help that Thrasios, Triton Hero is pretty much universally recognized as a combo commander.

There are a number of commander pairings that I'd love to see be possible for a number of reasons.

First on the list is Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip and The Reality Chip. Doesn't strike me as overly powerful, but it could be fun to run 2/3 of a Sensei's Top combo in the command zone. My gut tells me it wouldn't be quite as capable as the archetype already is with Elsha, but it would be a nifty pairing none the less.

Second on my list would be Gavi, Nest Warden and Rielle, the Everwise. Another nifty pairing where they play off each other's strengths. The Gavi+Library of Leng+Decree of Silence soft lock gets even better when it also draws a card each time you slap down an opponent's spell on their turn, exactly what a control deck like this needs to be effective. Doesn't change the deck any, just puts Rielle into the command zone for convenient access.

Sisay, Weatherlight Captain and Yoshimaru, Ever Faithful would be just too cute a pairing. The theme would be strong with this one.

Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca could be fun with Sygg, River Guide, Jori En, Ruin Diver or Dalakos, Crafter of Wonders to cram even more cool merfolk into merfolk tribal.

Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip and Tinybones, Trinket Thief seem like a match made in heaven. Ditto for Emry, Lurker of the Loch and Urza, Lord High Artificer.

Mina and Denn, Wildborn and Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait would be THE definitive "lands matter" commanders, right up my alley.

All of these seem like fun, none of these mashups present a true problem for the format in terms of play pattern powerlevels, but not all my wish list pairings are things that would play nice with the rest of the format.

Najeela, the Blade-Blossom and Plargg, Dean of Chaos  Flip/Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, for example, would break the entire format.

Yarok, the Desecrated + Omnath, Locus of Creation to cut out the Horde of Notions middleman and get roundly punched in the face.

On a more responsible note, Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca or Adrix and Nev, Twincasters + Sygg, River Guide would give the Bant Merfolk commander I think is sorely missing.
