    With Time Spiral now out Lord of Atlantis is now a merfolk so I decided it would be fun to make a deck to celebrate this over due upgrade. This is my first attempt at a merfolk deck as well so I wasn't sure on what should be in it. Then again trying new things is what makes the game fun.

    Creatures
    4 Tidal Warrior
    4 Manta Rider
    4 Lord Of Atlantis
    4 Merfolk Raiders
    4 Sandbar Merfolk
    4 Coral Merfolk
    3 Seahunter
    1 Temporal Adept

    Spells
    3 Counterspell
    3 Unsummon
    4 Bommerang
    4 Washout

    Enchanments
    4 Sea's Claim

    Lands
    18 Island

    I'm not sure I'd play the Merfolk Raiders.. 2/3 is very nice, but the Phasing is a drag. I also don't think you need the Temporal Adept if you are playing that many bounce-spells.

    You could consider adding some card drawing. I would suggest Saprazzan Heir and Coastal Piracy.
    Oh, and I'd think that Quicksilver Fountain would be a lot nastier way to create Islands.. If you put a couple of Oboro's in your deck, the flood will never go away :D

    I'm really surprised to see that there is not a Coat of Arms somewhere in the list... At least one - with all that control?... It would be worth it to hear someone say they got stomped by fish...

    Just wouldn't want it to be me...

    The pusher's back! :D

    "Got Coat?!.."

    (I'm trying to get back into the boards again... I just don't have the cushion I used to job-wise... being the Director of IT has me doing tons more than helpdesk duties... :rolleyes: )

    That's what you get for leaving your cushy other job! :D

    Man - I miss those 4 days a week - but with all these other benefits - It'd be a really hard decision to go back to something like that...

    Either way - I still pay attention to Magic, just not as active - but working on changing that also...

    This may be risky, but I would try skullclamp. You can spare a merfolk now and then since their are a number of them. Loose on merfolk, but draw a Lord of Atlantis and seahunter. Also, as soon a LOA hits the table he is going to be a target, so at least with skullclamp on him he won't die in vain

    I honestly had forgotten about skullclamp - good one...

    man - I need to freshen back up...

    Hear hear... Limited seems to remember a build I brought to the table quite a while ago... But it works like a charm!

    By the way, when you've got Coastal Piracy working, you're playing so many merfolk that you don't really need the Seahunter --although he became a LOT better with LOA as a merfolk... I might have to look into that :)

    To be able to play all the merfolk I drew due to Coastal Piracy, I used High Tide to drop loads of those guys!
  11. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    Huh? You seem to be implying that we've have played and you used a deck with Saprazzan Heir ..

    :confused:

    Can you refresh my memory?

    By now, Limited knows who I am, and I should probably apologize for accusing him of plagiarizing something in my first-ever post on this forum :rolleyes:

    Bit of a bad start, but a start nonetheless...
  13. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    Quick, post the latest deck you've built!

    They made Lord of Atlantis into a merfolk? Awesome!

    Is Zombie Master still a non-zombie, or did they fix him too?
  15. Limited Yes, but we won't care
