Deck discussion for Mono U Merfolk

I think Biomancer isn't worth taking the Cursecatcher slot for a couple of reasons. You have Silvergill Adept as an instant card draw, Biomancer needs to pay an extra cost and/or put a counter on it. This are two factors that can be interrupted by an opponent and so prevent drawing cards for you. Biomancer dosen't generate a card advantage because it says "then discard a card" so it is worthless to refresh your hand with a couple of new cards. Last but not least Cursecatcher has a more generic advantage of countering spells that may make the difference in the game, early as same as in late game.

Biomancer is a usefull card in decks where it's ability could be triggered more frequent like when playing along Sage of Fables or a green splash and a +1/+1 counter focus using Deeproot Elite and Kumena. It may also has a slot in decks where cycling through your deck is an option to find something unique

As far as i can tell after playtesting and according to the latest tournament results, biomancer is the way to go! Adept can be activated if there is a redundant card to cycle in your hand, otherwise you dont have to and its still a body on the board. With Cursecatcher on the other hand you sacrifice board presence if you make use of its ability. Also its quite easy to play around cursecatcher.
