Looks great! If you are going to add green to your deck, some Merfolk I recommend are:

Merfolk Mistbinder, Deeproot Elite, and Kumena's Speaker.

Some other Merfolk that are blue that you could consider are Merfolk Sovereign and Mist-Cloaked Herald.

From my understanding of Merfoilk, you want to play as many 1 and 2-drops to quickly flood the board with lots of creatures, and limit how many 3-drops you have (which is unfortunate, because Merfolk have lots of good 3-drops).

DBCooper Aquitect's Will is not a good card. It's not guaranteed to draw a card, and it doesn't turn off opponent's lands.

@DocHostile what are your thoughts on Merfolk Branchwalker? I think it could replace 2 of the Merfolk Mistbinders to keep you drawing gas and help find answers when a lord won't do. Considering you're also running the 8 islandwalk lords and 3 reejereys, I'm not sure the mistbinder will have enough impact.

maybe try Cursecatcher as a pseudo Spell Pierce on a merfolk body. Also consider Merfolk Mistbinder, as having additional lords is always great.

Huge essay-comment incoming

I try not to spend over $50 dollars on my decks unless it's for a specific reason or if I already own the cards, then I don't have to spend money getting those. (I know, it's super budget compared to some of your decks)

Aerial Responder is really good, but I decided that it worked better with more copies of Odric, and he made the deck easy to stop, as one removal spell ends it all. I traded it in for Veteran Swordsmith because, 1. The tokens need some way to further impact the board, and Field Marshal was a little too expensive (among other things).

With Preeminent Captain , I felt that it didn't do enough for me to warrant slots in the deck. It's really good, but with bigger Soldiers, and that isn't this deck's strategy.

Tajic, Blade of the Legion would be an all-star in this deck. If I could make the curve work, it would be a great addition. Except for one thing. I'm holding out for a Frontier-like format (w/ a banlist this time) that I can play all of my decks in more competitively. I dislike Standard's Rotation, but the speed of play is really fun. On the flipside, I like the lack of Rotation in Modern, but it plays too fast and only the good netdecks survive. (I really, really hate netdeckers. I need to upload a video about that...) I am willing to bet that the Frontier-like format would only include new-bordered cards, so unless Tajic is reprinted... :(

All things considered, you had wonderful advice, but my budget currently won't handle decks that price. However, you piqued my interest with the Mentor of the Meek . It looks like a good fit, but I don't want to mess up the curve too much, so I would have to ditch Tajic or the Swordsmith. If Wizards printed a two mana lord in Throne of Eldraine, Theros 2, or Lorwyn 2, then I would rework the deck to accommodate the lord and the Mentor. (preferably similar to Chief of the Edge , Legion Lieutenant , or Merfolk Mistbinder )

Thanks for the help.

I feel like splashing green just for Merfolk Mistbinder and Tamiyo, Collector of Tales isn't correct but I can't think of any card that buffs your guys in mono-blue to replace it. Going mono would however improve your mana base slightly and would make Tempest Djinn an option.

Ashiok seems bad just because few decks care about graveyards or searching and you don't care about getting milled either. Kefnet is cool as a 4/5 but being both legendary and resistant to removal I'd suggest swapping out a couple of him for Sphinx of Foresight . Narset, Parter of Veils is a great sideboard card right now.

Apart from that, I like your card choices. This strategy definitely has it's advantages.

Looks sweet! Simic is one of the more interesting colour combinations!

Just looking at the deck I have several cheap cards that spring to mind:

Merfolk Trickster - would combo well with Merfolk Mistbinder .

Opt could work, for you to cycle through your deck quickly. With 24 lands in such a fast-paced deck, controlling your draws will allow you to keep up tempo. An end of turn Opt gives you super-high value. Scry 1, draw one, and draw another on your turn.

Pteramander is also a potential heavy hitter that can be dropped turn 1, and quickly be transformed into a 5/5 flyer.

Have you thought about counterspells? Essence Capture and Negate are some great cards that are cheap and effective.

Dive Down has already been recommended, so no need to go into that.

Was also thinking Curious Obsession . Don't know how well it would play in your deck though, but throwing one on a Mist-Cloaked Herald turn two, you'll start building up your ward much faster than your opponent.

Overall, I think it looks like a sweet deck! Love the straightforward and simple design, no wacky combos or complicated mechanics. It's a cheap deck that can win games, I like it!
