Quote from rothgar13 »Feeling good about it. Those 3 matchups you mentioned are all in our favor, as are Burn and Shadow (two other major players). Various Merfolk pilots have been crushing it on Magic Online.
Quote from Shoebaccha »Hey Team,
I'm new in MTG Salvation, newish to MTG again (I was into it during Invasion, took some time, bought a few packs of Shards, now I'm back) and as you can guess I'm getting into Modern by getting into Fish. I have a deck, but I'm wondering if anyone has any resources wrt current archetypes that I can read up on before bringing my deck to a FNM. (I watch Nikachu's awesome stuff when I can, and I'm only acquainted with how Tron and, like, 8-Whack Goblins works (and what cards they typically run).
Does anyone know where else I can primers for the big archetypes in modern right now so I can study up before walking into a FNM for the first time in 15 years with a Merfolk deck? Any info would be greatly appreciated!
Quote from rothgar13 »Hi all,
Just wanted to pop in and report that I've had some success with a list going really heavy on the land hate, as follows:
In Waves v. 42Magic OnlineOCTGN2ApprenticeBuy These Cards
Artifacts (4)4 Aether VialCreatures (28)4 Lord of Atlantis4 Master of the Pearl Trident4 Master of Waves4 Merfolk Trickster4 Merrow Reejerey4 Phantasmal Image4 Silvergill AdeptEnchantments (8)4 Sea's Claim4 Spreading SeasLands (20)16 Island4 MutavaultSideboard (15)4 Deprive2 Echoing Truth3 Relic of Progenitus4 Tectonic Edge2 Venser, Shaper Savant
Pretty simple stuff. Lots of land hate, lots of beef, and just enough interaction to make it all stick. If your meta is looking heavy on the BGx, Burn, and Tron, give this a spin.

What's your manabase looking like now? I'm having a difficult time trying to figure out the optimal split between man lands, Caverns, Void, and now Blast Zone.
Quote from jokerstyle00 »What do people think of Vivien's Arkbow for filtering in mid/late game? Might help convert some of the useless dorks into threats in a more creature heavy version.
