Wrap in Vigor Discussion

I definitely prefer Aspect of Hydra over the 2 Blossoming Defense , to be honest. While Defense isn't bad, Aspect is just so good, and it can easily add 5 or 6 damage for a single mana, which can give you some really quick kills.
I'm not a fan of Wrap in Vigor , I don't think you ever want to be holding up two mana to prevent a wrath when you can instead just not play any more creatures. Realistically, 5+ power on board is scary to anyone, and they're forced to either find a way to stop combat or kill your creatures.
Also, when building your sideboard, think of what you're cutting for each card. For example, you'd probably cut Champion or Avatar to pull in 2 Scooze and 2 Weather against an aggro list. With that in mind, I'd rather have Reclamation Sage as your artifact/enchantment hate because it switches for Steel Leaf perfectly, and continues your board state building while other cards won't.
Or Thrun -- you don't have any other 4 mana card maindeck. As such, he's not great to side in. Dungrove Elder , Great Sable Stag , Barkhide Troll , Bassara Tower Archer are all better options, but they depend on your meta. You'd run Dungrove on default because it grows, Stag if counterspells, merfolk decks, or black creature decks are a problem, and the other two(which slot in for stuff like Avatar instead of Champion) if you need them to come down earlier.
Those are my thoughts for now, but I gtg so I guess I'll talk more later.

This deck is purely hypothetical, but I think I will copy it and cut out the blue and black for some green.
Please me some superior substitutes for Dragonlord's Servant , I'm interested.

You only have 6 dragons but have 8 dragon specific mana reducers, seems pretty loose. Idk. You might need some more dragons so that the turn you cast Utvara you make 2 or 3 dragons and then it doesnt matter even if he dies. I would def cut reanimate dead and dispel for Heroic Intervention or Wrap in Vigor and cut the Dragonlord's Servant and Dragonspeaker Shaman for Birds of Paradise and maybe a Dragon's Hoard or 2. There are a lot of better options out there. Use scryfall dot com.

Meta dependent. They both remove things well but in certain scenarios one out performs the other. In a low to the ground metagame they'll both do well. Languish laughs at cards like Heroic Intervention and Wrap in Vigor ; however it may not be a good match for Doran, the Siege Tower or Arcades, the Strategist - Granted, defender decks are niche but it should be a consideration. Basically, if your meta has a loads of low cmc creatures with high toughness run Ritual and if it's just low to the ground creatures with protection/industructable shenanigans run languish.

Thanks for the suggestions! And I highly recommend Kumena as a merfolk commander. He is a lot of fun!
I haven't critically looked at this deck for a while tbh. The ramp definitely could use some work, it hasn't really been touched since I first made the deck (when Rivals of Ixalan came out), and I like to think I'm a much better deckbuilder since then. But I got a couple of copies of Three Visits laying around, and adding a Rimewood Falls would work really well.
Coat of Arms is a bit outside of my budget though. And honestly, my meta is so tribal-heavy, it might end up working against me, haha. But I do have a copy of Beastmaster Ascension in my Hapatra deck, so I could use that.
I'll be honest, Breaking Wave is mostly there for flavor reasons. But I will say that is has indeed stolen games for me, by acting as the Blustersquall and the Dramatic Reversal all in one. But those are good suggestions if I'm looking to optimize it even more.
Heroic Intervention is also a bit out of budget. I mostly keep the counterspells in my deck as board protection. I don't really counter anything that doesn't affect my board (or if it's a game-winning play of course). But Wrap in Vigor is a very nice option I didn't know about! Countering a boardwipe is sadly not quite the same as protecting your stuff from one.

Hey there! As a merfolk player in Modern, I've been thinking about a Kumena EDH for a while.
Also, maybe I'd go for faster green ramp instead of Simic Signet and Commander's Sphere (maybe the second one could be replaced for Arcane Signet if you feel like ramping with artifacts). Three Visits and Nature's Lore could replace those guys ( Rimewood Falls also lets you search for a forest island).
Cool idea for the commander! Let me know if any of my suggestions made it through the list!

It looks pretty good for multiplayer to me! My only comments: I'm a little surprised to see a few boardwipes; you're definitely going to be the aggressive creature deck and boardwipes are usually your enemy! I understand the desire to have a reset button in the deck, but I think maybe focusing on more spot removal for problematic creatures would be helpful. You could swap Wrath of God , Day of Judgment and Martial Coup for Swords to Plowshares , Path to Exile , and Banishing Light for example.
My other suggestion would be to take out some of the really high-cost cards like Zendikar Resurgent , Kindred Summons , and Doubling Season . There's not a huge counters or tokens emphasis with cat tribal and the value of Zendikar Resurgent is nice, but at that point in the game you probably just want ways to get around big things on the board or get in for that last bit of damage.
I'd recommend adding a few protection pieces instead. These get a bit expensive so whatever you can afford or proxy: Heroic Intervention , Wrap in Vigor , Teferi's Protection . Alternatively I'd replace the above with some good aggressive equipment like Stoneforge Masterwork , Hammer of Nazahn , and Maul of the Skyclaves .
Hope that helps!!
