I guess 2/1 for 2 mana in blue decks isnt precissely effective, but is average. His counterspell hability is fine. 3.5/5 .

I know, right? Everything else that makes Merfolk seems to make Merfolk Wizards (Stonybrook Schoolmaster, Summon the School, etc.). That would have been an awesome combo. You can still get the same combo just by adding Xenograft calling out Wizards.

There are other things you could do to lock people out with Lullmage Mentor, like using Intruder Alarm, but you still have the problem of getting 7 Merfolk to begin with before getting slaughtered by removal / burn / pinging / etc., mass or otherwise.

BlueBlue, Sacrifice a Dark Confidant before the life loss kills you: target spell takes it in the face.

Stonybrook Schoolmaster hates this guy for eating all his best students. :(

@Silverware: And this doesn't make him look fat? :(

Also, he looks like he's having a hard time at rolling a soap bubble up a hill...

Excellent way to recycle Willbenders or Voidmage Apprentices after unmorphing, assuming you're not taking advantage of re-morphing effects.

Kai here can sacrifice most of the other invitational winners! He's like their leader or something.

I'm not entirely convinced that Jon Finkel could beat Kai in a fight. Shadowmage infiltrator shouldn't be able to kill him.

Phelddagrif/Questing Phelddagrif (anagram of Garfield, Ph. D; Richard Garfield, creator of Magic)

The original phelddagrif is on the reserved list; I'm guessing the later version of it was meant to "work around" it.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
