Vapor Snag Discussion

Hi there! Having played variations of this deck in playtesting a TON, I highly recommend the following. Lava Dart is a must. While 1 damage is seemingly minimal, the fact that you can do it at instant speed AND then play it back from the graveyard by sacrificing a tapped mountain allows double triggers and the combined 2 damage is often enough to remove blockers or clinch the win. Sprite Dragon is a MUST. The fact that the counters are permanent vs prowess triggers which fall off at EOT is out of control! I noticed you like your Boomerang effects. May I suggest Brazen Borrower. He does it all. Petty theft their blockers or attackers for only one more than say a Vapor Snag, trigger prowess, but then have access to flashing him in late game as a 3/1 flyer is extremely useful. Just some thoughts. Cheers!

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

You only need 3 of Tasigur and Gurmag combined and even Pyromancer can be cut down to 2. Sprite Dragon is a great substitute.

Since the deck is aggro-tempo, I think you can probably drop the Cryptic Commands, as they are too slow and worse than Remand here. I assume you're using Unsummon instead of Vapor Snag because you can bounce your own creatures?
I think you could fit in a singleton of Spell Snare in there, just because it's really satisfying when it works. Also, have you tried testing with 4x Aether Vial? Maybe 1x Faerie Conclave? Other potential faeries are Sower of Temptation, Faerie Impostor, Glen Elendra Archmage (a bit slow but a singleton can do some work). Maybe Chart a Course for more draw or Favorable Winds to pump your creatures. Just throwing out ideas. Looks good! Although Vendilion Clique is dope im serious

I would consider going grixis for Sedraxis Specter and Lightning Bolt and Terminate/Dreadbore and Vapor Snag and other blue draw like Remand/Think Twice.... bounce effects of nonland permanents like Echoing Truth will essentially become removal with Spector combat damage.

Agreed. You have too many creatures and not enough of the prowess enablers themselves. Cyclonic Rift is only expensive because EDH -- you're never gonna cast it for overload in this deck so it's basically pointless. If you really want efficient bounce spells I would consider Vapor Snag or Void Snare
