Quote from rothgar13 »I'm doing pretty well without either of those cards, though they will of course help.
On the subject of MTGSalvation's closure and what that means for the primer, I'll be migrating the information over to a Google document. Please be patient, as some reformatting will be required during the transition.
Quote from rothgar13 »We've been testing Benthic Biomancer, and I must say that I'm impressed. I was initially skeptical, but it's nice to have a 1-drop to curve out with again, and the loot has been pretty darn good (turning a topdecked Vial or a late land into a live draw never gets old). It's also freed my curve up to test bigger counterspells like Mana Leak, which has also been impressive. This is the list I've been jamming of late. It's preliminary, but I feel good about it.
Quote from Xaricore »I do admit, Merfolk right now is really good against most decks. Only two decks I have issues with is Tron and Affinity.
Only thing about Tron that annoys me is three cards: Ancient Stirrings, Oblivion Stone, and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon. Ancient Stirrings is honestly what makes the deck hard to deal with. The can find their answers to our board too quickly. Sure, I run 4 sideboard Sea's Claim but usually is not enough to deal with.
Affinity is really just a match to where can I out aggro the other aggro deck? Games 2 and possibly 3 is, I need to draw sideboard hate and fast.
What does everyone else think is the bane for Merfolk in our current meta?

Our opponents at the end of tournament weren't too happy and they declared more hate cards towards fish for next Sunday
Quote from rothgar13 »It stays a creature, yes. The way you beat Bogles mostly revolves around Coronet - if you can counter it (with Deprive or Spell Pierce), bounce it (or bounce other Auras in response to it being cast to blow them out), or fade it, you can win.
