Beautiful card, one of my favorite by Benson. Decent in game if you're running a Merfolk deck.

3.5/5

Of course it's only decent if you're running merfolk tribal, or changelings. It doesn't do anything but pump merfolk.

Yawn. Merfolk were viable in 1995. 2013? Not so much.

Until the release of Fallen Empires, Merfolk wasn't a very viable deck option, which is unfortunate, because Lord of Atlantis is a solid card. Like Goblin King and Zombie Master, Lord of Atlantis had the unfortunate downside of affecting ALL merfolk in play, and not just your own. Back then, lords didn't bestow their bonuses on one another, which meant the only creatures Lord of Atlantis could pump up within the set was the lowly Merfolk of the Pearl Trident. At least Goblin King had Mons's Goblin Raiders AND Goblin Balloon Brigade. But Lord of Atlantis was blue, which meant easy access to Phantasmal Terrain or Magical Hack, ensuring that your islandwalking fishfolk would be able to stomp your opponent rather easily.

This printing shows the first ever creature type change in Magic's history — from "Lord-of-Atlantis" to just "Lord".
