Troll Merfolk Ft: Psionic Blast and Mutagenic Growth. Magic Online Gameplay

Today we explore new cards for our trolling Modern Merfolk list. Psionic Blast can still kill most of the important creatures like Thing in the Ice and Crackling Drake while pushing the extra points of damage to win the game. Mutagenic Growth will help us win in combat and also push extra points of damage in situations our opponent isn’t suspecting it.


Thanks for tuning in.
