Lord of Atlantis

Creature — Merfolk

Other Merfolk get +1/+1 and have islandwalk. (They can't be blocked as long as defending player controls and island.)

Coralhelm Commander seems a bit slow compared to Lord of Atlantis or Master of the Pearl Trident (which is better), especially if you want to keep mana up for instant-speed stuff. It's for a 3/3 flier, which is squarely average, then another before it starts buffing other Merfolk.

If I were to only look at your pending deliveries, I'd make the following changes.

Empress Galina --> Lord of Atlantis

Kumena's Speaker --> Master of the Pearl Trident

Shaper Apprentice --> Realmwalker

Storm Sculptor --> Merfolk Skydiver

Rootwater Diver --> Svyelun of Sea and Sky

Lotus Blossom --> Hadana's Climb  Flip

Afiya Grove --> Utopia Sprawl

Thornwood Falls --> Flooded Grove

Vivid Grove --> Rejuvenating Springs

Littjara Mirrorlake --> Dreamroot Cascade

Quandrix Campus --> Windswept Heath

Battlegrowth --> Barkchannel Pathway  Flip

Once you make some additional updates and clean up your maybe list (I see some cards there that are also in your main board), I'll be happy to take another look! However, some other cards you should consider (that I don't see in either list) are Emperor Mihail II, Murkfiend Liege, Simic Ascendancy, Kindred Discovery, and Guardian Project. A more more expensive card option could be The Ozolith, but I'd wait on that to see if you like how the deck plays after some changes.

Rasaru Thank you for commenting and giving me some advice. I really appreciate this!

For my budget, I would like to include some cards that cost about 10€ each, in total I would say I can afford about 100€ +/-20 (the lesser the better).

After testing the Deck for my own, I agree that my manabase needs some fixes. I ordered some cards to upgrade this a bit (see below).

As I am trying to put as many counters on my board as possible, I feel, that the creatures that do not create tokens like Kumena's Speaker, could be excluded?

I got some pending deliveries. Here are the cards that I bought to upgrade it:

Lord of Atlantis, Master of the Pearl Trident, Snakeskin Veil, Realmwalker, Double Major, Forced Adaptation, Kiora, Master of the Depths, Deeproot Champion, Merfolk Skydiver, Primal Empathy, Vastwood Fortification  Flip, Oversimplify, Tangled Islet, Flooded Grove, Rejuvenating Springs, Utopia Sprawl, Dreamroot Cascade, Talisman of Curiosity, Simic Signet, Hadana's Climb  Flip, Barkchannel Pathway  Flip, Svyelun of Sea and Sky, Windswept Heath

I am not sure what to exclude and what to include.. (fyi I am playing for half a year, Thank you in advance!

I've also been thinking about playing merfolk recently... (the new ixalan set is giving neat Lord of Atlantis art btw).... Nikachu has been on a Merrow Reejerey kick lately saying that its really good in the deck allowing you to Aether Vial and create huge boards out of nowhere.

Anthems are cards that generally give your creatures a buff a some sort. Glorious Anthem, Intangible Virtue, Sylvan Anthem. Stuff like that.

On a similar note, the term lords generally refers to a creature that gives the same effect. Elvish Clancaller, Lord of Atlantis, Leaf-Crowned Visionary, Death Baron etc.

A really good card for Lathril decks is Chatterfang, Squirrel General. Chatterfang essentially doubles token generation and could essentially be a budget version of Parallel Lives when it comes down to it. Lathril is a really cool commander (who comes from one of my favorite sets/planes!) and has the potential to be built in a lot of different ways and power levels. Definitely a good pick!

Here’s a section from my recent budget Merfolk deck.


===accordion

===panel:Islands
![Islands](https://product-images.tcgplayer.com/237588.jpg "enter image title here")
#### [[card:Cavern of Souls]]
With a heavy representation of [[symbol:U]] decks in the current Modern Meta, this powerful land is worth it's weight in Platinum. (Literally) Unfortunately this high price tag limits us to 1 copy.
<hr>

#### [[card:Otawara, Soaring City]]
An un-counterable bounce spell on a land is hard to not include. This land is still a reasonable price and offers the deck an added utility with which to steal victory. Play it untapped as a [[symbol:U]] source, pitch it to bounce a permanent for soft removal, or bounce your own permanent for protection. Keep in mind that this hits artifact creature and enchantment lands if needed.
<hr>

#### [[card:Mutavault]]
While not an island, an honorary merfolk that can receive a boost from your [[card:Lord of Atlantis (LEB) | Lords]] and provide a threat that can be tough to interact with against certain decks.
<hr>

#### [[card:Waterlogged Grove]] / [[card:Fiery Islet]]
Running out of gas in an aggressive deck is the worst thing you can have happen. With an empty board and an empty hand, the top of your library is your last resource in Merfolk. The ability to double dip in a pinch makes this untapped land a welcome addition to the archetype. Be careful with the pain taken from this land as it can add up against other aggro decks.

Chasmolinker on So, You Wanna Play Merfolk Yea? (Budget)

I'm always amazed at the creativity and quality of your deck builds. This one wasn't too difficult as the bulk of the list is pretty budget to begin with by Modern's standards. I came close to splashing green for some ramp and Hydroid Krasis but abandoned the idea once I gave the green Merfolk suite a closer look. It wouldn't have been a Merfolk deck in the way most people looking to play the archetype would enjoy playing. It would have just been a Simic pile with a Merfolk sub-theme. This deck really boils down to a few key cards that you HAVE to include no matter the budget. (Lord of Atlantis might not be one of them) Currently, Subtlety, Vodalian Hexcatcher, and Aether Vial definitely are. Otawara, Soaring City is also key since it can't be countered. The deck needs as much interaction and resiliency as possible in today's Modern Metagame.
