It would be a bad day in magic if they ever printed bears for Red and Blue. I mean, 99 percent of tourney decks running Green,White, or Black have x4 Glory Seeker, Walking Corpse, or Runeclaw Bear right??

Oh whats that?? They dont?? AND THIS IS A BAD CARD???
Well that just completely blows up their logic for Goblin Piker and Coral Merfolk.

Here's an obvious thought:

The reason why Coral Merfolk is named that way is because of the coral that they use as armor.

Here's a less obvious thought:

Why does the armor do nothing? Why does an armored merfolk have less toughness than an old artificer?
Same goes for Goblin Piker: you can see CLEAR AS DAY that he's wearing armor, and yet, his other unarmored comrades have the same toughness as he does (see any other goblin).
I suppose magic is what gives creatures more toughness, and anyone who doesn't use magic was a Little Girl before grabbing a spear and armor.

Magic - 1
Logic - 0

Why bring this back? The 1/3 Merfolk from 2011 just fit blue's stratergy so much better.

I hate you, Coral Merfolk. Maritime Guard felt much more like a blue creature. Too bad everybody hated that one.

Phantasmal Bear.
Merfolk Mesmerist.
Seriously, this guy is redundant. It`s a blue Goblin Piker. And we don`t need a blue Piker. In fact, we don`t need a red Piker either, but this makes even less sense in blue.
I`m not a big fan of Maritime Guard, but it`s much better and more flavorful than this.

@Purple_Mist:
This is blasphemous !How can you compare a piece of fish crap like this to the allmighty Storm Crow, the most overpowered creature ever? The crow is going to peck your eyes out while you sleep for this insolence.

Man I love these vanilla merfolk! They're all so innovative. Each on is more interesting than the last.

every bad vanilla creature must have long, boring flavor text extolling it's virtues. This is nonegotiable.

Let's propose neat abilities for the vanilla creatures that get printed in each new core set. Who knows, a bored Wizards developer may happen upon one...

Sacrifice an Island: Untap Coral Merfolk. Coral Merfolk is unblockable this turn.
