The original Merfolk Lord, why this was printed with only Merfolk of the Pearl Trident available to pump, This card also is very flavorful...

when it was printed, you could have any number of any card in the deck.

so you could just run, 20 lords, 20 of merfolk of the pearl trident and 20 black lotus.

not quite as fast as 20 lightning bolt, 20 black lotus and 20 ancestral recall, but what can you do?

I would have run
20 ancestral recall
20 black lotus
20 lightning bolt
and we would find ourselves in a position where it only matters who goes first.

Havens seriously? I would have run
20X Channel
20x Fireball
20x Black Lotus

Still a force to be reckoned with, perhaps moreso with all the different merfolk out there now. Easily my favorite of the oldschool tribal lords. Blue has a lot of ways to turn other people's lands into islands. Do that, and play only Merfolk or use an enchantment like Xenograft or Unnatural Selection and it might as well say "your creatures are unblockable." Draw cards with Scroll Thief or with Coastal Piracy to cantrip every time you hit 'em with anything.

This card won me games on shandalar, turning my 1/1 chumps into 2/2 chumps.

10X Channel
10x Fireball
10x Black Lotus
10X Wheel of Fortune
