Okay, great.. Your point is..? Should I give credit to you for posting first? In that case, I posted Worship lists as far back as October and earlier, so you should pay fealty to the real Whitefish in the thread!
About your build with Worship in SB.. I found that to be inferior to just running it in the MB, as you dilute your plan very little to include in the MB 2-3 copies of a card that is unbeatable in a ton of matchups. I would also run 3 Path to Exile over 3 Dismember in MB, you are already on the W splash so why not use it? Your Simian Spirit Guide plan seems misguided, if you will.. Is that just to ramp out a t3 worship? You also run 1 Plains coupled with Fetchlands, I would never run a basic Plains in this list when you can run so many UW lands. Painlands are better even, imo, and I'm not sure I would include those right now.

Quote from HagraSharpshooter »Quote from Leyart »It makes burn a winnable matchup, even considering the chalice of the void that you have in the side. You may or may not struggle against affinity while I have never found Podless Company a real threat.
Wasn't Burn already relatively winnable, with Master of Waves in the main and Tidebinder Mage from the side? So wouldn't it be more correct to say, if anything, that it makes the match-up "more winnable"?
Path to Exile is obviously nicer than Vapor Snag or Dismember, but is it worth giving them an extra land? I can also imagine the Spell Pierce and Chalices working out well for you (both played in U Merfolk). I am missing Kira in your build, though.
How does Sejiri Merfolk fair in this match-up? Would you say he's the MVP, like others have suggested, and despite only playing 2 in your build?
I often find myself playing to get Master of Waves online in this match-up. Is the game-plan similar for you with respect to Worship?

Quote from Lord_Velysarn » I noticed you run only Kataki, no Stony Silence. I assume this is due to it being A)You can Vial it in, and B) it doesn't stop your own vial. Am I correct?.
Quote from L0rdAceX »I really am not sold on playing Worship in the Fish shell. You have to dilute your manabase into white for a clunky 4 mana enchantment.
IMO, Just play the monoblue version, learn its matchups and tweak for your meta, win games.
