Hello all,

I am merrowMania, aka MerfolkMan. I began my Magic-al journey with a friend's mono-blue merfolk deck, the predecessor/'inspiration' for Them Fishies Will Kill You.

I like to think of myself as a serious Magic player, which, for the most part, is true. That's the Spike in me. I enjoy proving myself through how well I play (regardless of whether I win).

I am also a DCI-certified Rules Adviser. (Edit: the Rules Adviser program was discontinued)

I am also a Melvin, someone who appreciates how all the pieces of Magic fit together to make this great game what it is, both at a card level (like with Primal Command and Firemaw Kavu) and a macroscopic level (like with the rules for Layering). I am the person who reads the competitive rules in his spare time, thereby allowing him to delve as deep into the game as his mind desires.

But Magic is a game to be played with others, particularly friends. I sometimes find myself at odds with them when: I start to make a deck too controlling, I take too long trying to maximize my turns/actions, or I point out how a rule is being ignored or 'correct gameplay' is not enforced. These are some of the things I need to work on and hope to overcome.

If my comments or responses reflect what I have said, I apologize in advance.

You can find me on PucaTrade under the name Merrow (https://pucatrade.com/profiles/show/49547) or browsing the Rules Q&A here on TappedOut.
(Edit: I am now more likely browsing the cEDH list as it is more discussion-based than answer-based.)

Best T/O Rank: 15 <--This is me being a tad too competitive :P

The following are my Magic Personality Results, in order of accuracy (all still represent me, but some are expressed more than others):

I am Blue/Green
I am Blue/Green

I am both rational and instinctive. I value self-knowledge and understanding of the world; my ultimate goal is self-improvement and improvement of the world around me. At best, I am focused and methodical; at worst, I am obsessive and amoral.

I am Red/Blue
I am Red/Blue

I are both rational and emotional. I value creation and discovery, and feel strongly about what I create. At best, I'm innovative and intuitive. At worst, I'm scattered and unpredictable.

I am Black/Green
I am Black/Green

I am both selfish and instinctive. I value growth and community, as long as they favor my own objectives; I enjoy nature, and I particularly enjoy watching parts of nature die. At best, I am resilient and tenacious; at worst, I'm uncontrollable and destructive.

I do not really know where I came across this, but here is the result of the Nodiatis RPG Personality Test:

It won't be much different than what is on the Decklist Database. If you look at the primers, there are tons of explanations for different cards, including meta choices. https://cedh-decklist-database.com/

No. I don't record the lists anywhere.

Gitrog, Thrasios/Tymna. Other things if I'm feeling spicy.

I don't have one. As I said, I've haven't played Omnath in a long time. I wouldn't say the deck is unplayable or dead, but I wasn't having fun with it and it needed a big retooling back when I dropped it.

I was making an observation on the current decklist and how it is tailored to a meta that no longer exists.

Things like Mina and Denn, Runic Armasaur, Decimate, Triumph, Wheel of Fortune can probably be dropped. This list is very old and does not reflect what should be run in a cEDH Omnath list, not that I have been thinking about it in years. I got bored of the deck a while ago, and it wasn't performing well in most metas. Feel free to change things and have fun. I'm not much of an authority on the deck anymore (not that I necessarily was before).
