    *Praying for Cursecatcher 5-8* but something more like a Spiketail Drake with the 2 colorless mana counterspell...maybe a 1/2 or something a little stronger.

    or a Spellstutter Sprite for Merfolks Grin

    I'm just trying to think of any other tricks 'folk can pull off besides randomly getting flying by paying a blue....not many.

    Slim, although I wouldn't declare it impossible. The token-wizard is probably your best pick with something maybe equal to its caliber. But considering Merfolk are pretty stable, you just got the lord in M10, I wouldn't "expect" another bomb. If it happens, it happens -- if nothing comes up, it shouldn't have been a demand.
    However, if I were to put money on what is left, I would really focus on a 1cc or 2cc merfolk to suppliment specifically Cursecatcher and maybe challenge/boost Silvergills. There are a handful of 3cc slots but the 1cc slot is still lacking numbers (not to discredit Curse, who kicks ass, but another guy would be nice).

    I guess you're right--Lorwyn/Shadowmoor gave us quite a few great 'folk. Mostly I just compare Merfolk to Gobs and Elves (because my circle plays those, Eva Green, and White Staxxx....we're pretty limited). We all got great lords in M10, and LMSE gave elves a boost, too, so maybe awesome Goblins are deserved.

    Still hate the other two tribes, though.

    What do you guys think are the odds that we'll get at least one decent Merfolk (for the basic tempo deck) from the 8 remaining Zendikar slots?

    Quote from The Scientist
    2 triggers, if they reveal a land, they put it into their hand, then the next trigger resolves and it may be another land. If the first is a nonland, then the second trigger will not do a lot more Wink

    I'll leave the debate of the consequences up to you guys

    Gosh, imagine the mirror if you used that card. They are pulling lands out with fetches, and you're helping them even more. Their Ringleader pulls should start to get consistently insane.

    Actually I think I was wrong. Does this help Sigil decks at all?....besides guaranteeing some nice new tokens in Zendikar?

    Is Fog-Sigil somewhat more legit now?

    Is this close enough?

    Our first thought when we saw this was that together with the above and this, it made a tribe combo which was drafted for Lorwyn but judged to be too obnoxious for Type II.

    You can play it in other formats though, because they're not as "serious". Wink You can even think you're clever for building it.

    And then you can take your opponent back to school for a good lesson in what a truly dull counter deck is like.

    I was thinking about Merrow Commerce as soon as I saw him, too. I imagine a casual Legacy CounterTop merfolk deck with those two and Arcane Laboratory. Maybe a lot to get out, but it would be pretty funny....actually, you could never get that whole thing out in a serious Legacy environment, methinks. Casual, though, would be great.

    Well guys, in the MTGsal tournament, I got storm combo-ed first round.

    Any tips on how to deal with it? I know there really isn't much to do but some sort of secret tech would be nice.

    Arcane Laboratory?

    In other words, I sure do hope for a stifle reprint.

    Ditto. Just bought one yesterday on eBay right before they revealed the fetches...so I'm also hoping for a nice little reprint.

    I'm waiting for the Ally lord that makes them cost way less....and therefore usable.

    Hey, guys, I just made an account so I could post on this topic. Been reading it for months. Anyway...

    Quote from Lekwid
    If you have 7 critters on the board, the only reason you'd want to tap them is to attack.

    Is there any chance Merrow Commerce could be useful? I love the card, but I have never found a great use for it...unless you're running some weird lockdown-Opposition deck....just a thought I'd like some feedback on.

    I also thought Arcane Laboratory would make it pretty funny. Obviously too many things need to be going on, but it might be funny in a more casual setting.
