Gameplan

The merfolk gameplan is to still flood the board with a bunch of fish friends but thanks to #MTGAFR, we have a few tools to try out. Specifically, Lair of the Hydra and Ranger Class.

$ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00

These two new cards have boosted the power level of most green decks in the format so why not see if Merfolk can benefit from them too? First off, having a creature land is always powerful as it's able to dodge sorcery speed answers like Wrath of God. The land is a mana sink and is a legit closer once our opponents are exhausted of resources! Ranger Class continues to impress in all formats and I imagine that this is the card Merfolk need to get card advantage. 

Conclusion

The new cards did boost our power level, but Merfolk will always be a meme deck in Historic until we get cards like Lord of Atlantis and resource denial like Spreading Seas. The deck is fun for Merfolk Fanatics so if you're a fan, definitely try it out!
