It almost auto loses to Fish however.
I honestly hadn't thought too hard about the Null Rod mirror, but could you expound on this a little? What is your game plan in those circumstances? And here are we talking Noble Hierarch/Bob kind of decks?
I am talking more specifically of Merfolk. We end up having so many blanks that the only real plan is to hide behind ensnaring bridge. The deck cannot beat TTN. Decks with hierarch/bob and such usually fall prey to blood moon effects enough for those to be fine.
I’m convinced abrade is also a terrible card in the list. If you are 1 for 1 shops, you will lose. They have so much more mana production than you do that you if you are basically investing a turn in destroying things, it has to be at a better rate than 1 for 1.
Abrades are in the deck so I don't lose to my own mana crypt and not specifically for shops. I never felt they were amazing during my 5 rounds.
How is eidolon of the great revel? I haven’t played it. But again it seems pretty loose. Like you cant play it maindeck and hide behind a ensnaring bridge to beat mud. Because you’ll have to cast your cards and lose life.
It also doesn’t autowin vs combo lists. It could do some good, but you need other things to go along with it.
Curious how it has played out for you guys. But it just doesn’t seem one-sided enough to play in my opinion.
It was better at psyching my opponent out and drawing removal than it was at actually impacting the board. I will likely trim numbers, or move to board. Might even cut. I felt very meh about it. I will say they usually come right out for matchups where you want your bridges for very obvious reasons.
