This is one of my favorites too. I hadn't even intended the deck to be a deck destruction deck until I started playing it. It works great!

Combos well with Puresight Merrow and any other Merfolk with an Untap ability.

This is the first card I have ever rated. But I have played with it many times. I've had my fair share of wins thanks to this card. It combos well with Merrow Commerce, for pretty obvious reasons. Other cards it interacts well with are Judge of Currents, Veteran of the Depths, or any other Merfolk with an ability that triggers when it taps.

5/5 stars

How is this not much more famous than it is?
Fallowsage, Grimoire Thief, Judge of Currents, Stonybrook Schoolmaster, Veteran of the Depths, all activate abilities for paying this "cost."

There's also, they cost manna but still work: Surgespanner, Leech Bonder, Merrow Grimeblotter, Puresight Merrow, and maybe Merrow Wavebreakers?

Then there's Merrow Commerce Which doubles everything.

To top it off, it's at the speed of an instant, so you don't have to worry about who to keep untapped to block since you can wait until just before they are untapped and you don't have to wait for summoning sickness because it doesn't have the tap symbol.

I'd also throw in Drowner Initiate and Ink Dissolver, no direct synergy, but mil... (see all)

Why has no one mentioned the Intruder Alarm + Stonybrook Schoolmaster combo?

It wish Rebecca Guay still did artwork. Her illustrations were always so mystical...

The keystone of my friend's Merfolk mill deck. It's a little vulnerable, but with some tribal support it's tougher to get rid of.

I just realized that her anti-synergy with Lullmage mentor is also really really awesome synergy. She puts pressure on them to cast a spell while he makes them casting a spell into more merfolk and useless. While they don't both work at the same time, they synergize by ensuring your untapped merfolk don't go to waste.
