Even if you have no combo in your deck whatsoever, this is still a fantastic creature. Almost every opponent has some kind of tutor and/or land acceleration that will hit this thing at least 2 or 3 times.

Really nice effect for a 1-drop, particularly with the Merfolk clan attached to it.

good with portent.

So you could make a deck that forces the player to search a lot but then they just kill the creature and your deck does nothing, oooooorr, you could make them think your deck needs it so they waste a removal on it.
This guy makes a great decoy and if they are running fetch lands, harrows, and expanses, then even better.

this is hilarious, there are now more rare merfolk in standard then either common or uncommon.

Hahaha! Amazingly funny design. That's right, punish those rich bastards for playing with their playsets of fetchlands!

I'm particularly fond of the idea of using this with Roo***er Thief since neither is a particularly bad choice for using in an aggressive merfolk deck alone

much <3

Specific Card Combos: Gomazoa, Path to Exile, Polymorph, Soldier of Fortune, Boggart Forager, Oath of Lieges, Ambassoder Sphinx and Maralan of the Mournsong.

Mechanical Combos: Cards that search your opponent's deck like Thought Hemorrhage, Lobotomy, Roo***er Thief, Bitter Ordeal and Extract.

Good Against: Rebels, Fetchland, Specific Card Cycling, Tutors, effects like Ponder, anti-rezz effects like Progenitus

Hurt by: Mindlock Orb (Although mindlock is a good card to include in this type of deck to stop things like your own Path to Exiles.

Boggart Forager or even Soldier of Fortune is just HILARIOUS with this card! Sacrifice Boggart, shuffle their library, +1/+1 on your Trickster. Soldier of Fortune? Pay one red, tap get another +1/+1. A 3/3 creature on your 2nd turn? Or even a 4/4 on your third. Also, it makes those Terramorphic Expanses a little trickier to sac, unless they do something fast about this card. A;so, try making them suffer even MORE by putting an Archive Trap for searching their libraries. Tisk-tisk...

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
