Deck Description

A general idea of a Merfolk island walk deck I've been thinking about. Just a table top idea, nothing too serious.

Deck discussion for Blue Merfolk

Personally I would try to reduce the diversity of your creatures a little bit. Normally Merfolk tries to be rather fast so I would try to concentrate on the 1-3 mana mana creatures/ cards. Also cards like Mist-Cloaked Herald or Stonybrook Banneret could be trated for some (more) lords like Lord of Atlantis, Master of the Pearl Trident, Merfolk Sovereign or Merrow Reejerey.
Last I would remove Counterspell for something modern legal like Mana Leak as you might someday take this deck to a local (modern) match and can't because of one card.

I gave it a try and you're right. It looks more balanced.

The non-creature base of your deck seems a little bit random.

Why are you playing Acuitects Will along with a 4 drop of Spreading Seas?

Turn to Frog is some kind of useless, you don't want to interact witht he opponent in Merfolk Aggro rather than do you own thing and counter stuff that might prevent your plans.

Merrow Commerce is a great support card but only if your creatures benefit from it. I don't see any creature that benefits from it right now and you don't want to block with them, Merfolk is (played right) getting very fast very dangerous so your opponent will try to block you instead.

If you intend to play this deck not too serious, then you could propably run the standard list, means 8 Lords, Aether Vial and so on but you could also run a little bit more relaxed. Stonybrook Banneret is a great card with a lot of combo benefits. Together with Merrow Reejerey you can potentially play your entire hand in one single turn while spells like Sage's Dousing are potential better than Mana Leak with a single Banneret on the table.

Silvergill Adept is pretty usefull too. It is not just a good hit in turn 2 but also provides card replacement in your hand
