Are you looking for an affordable Modern deck that’s fair, interacts with opponents, and even shares so many cards with its Legacy counterpart that it is almost 2 decks in one? Well, then have I got a deck for you: Modern Merfolk.

Modern Merfolk combines tempo with aggro swarm to create a fun but powerful deck in modern. It also shares ⅔ of its cards with Legacy Merfolk, meaning that with a few additional purchases you can switch between Legacy and Modern Merfolk whenever you want. Talk about a 2 for 1!

While not quite a Tier 1 Deck, Modern Merfolk has been consistently present in competitive Magic and often is right on the cusp of breaking through. That’s one thing so many Merfolk players find appealing about this deck: you can customize it, significantly or subtle, and maybe find the right combination to finally break through to the top echelons of competitive gameplay.

This video will explore Mono Blue Modern Merfolk, the default and solid starting point for a dip into the modern waters of fish. But Merfolk is versatile, and you can make a splash with everything from White/Blue Merfolk, to the rapidly exploding Blue/Green Merfolk builds.
