Quote from Simto »I'd like to try a Merfolk deck. Seems very fun, but not strong enough to me.
Best not to think of it as a merfolk deck. While in limited they are kind of forced to play with themselves, creatures like Merfolk Branchwalker are just good on their own and if someone is playing blue Kumena's Speaker is very playable with at least some other merfolk in the deck. I'm much more a fan of explore on a 2 cost piker and a 1/1 that can become a 2/2 easily by turn 2, than the whole "lets be merfolk" angle. At least, that is my stance until the next set comes out. My feeling is that we will get an enemy land cycle at some point to allow more consistent decks come Rivals.
