Channel Nikachu: Simic Merfolk in the New Modern Metagame Nikachu September 12, 2019 Channel Nikachu With Faithless Looting banned and Stoneforge Mystic Unbanned, certainly Modern will change all over again. When a format changes drastically, how do we change our deck? We don’t. Nikachu sticks to the exact same build as the previous meta, only changing the list as we actually see the meta evolve. Will Stoneforge be as dominant as we think? Will Jund return? Will Dredge survive the bannings? Only time will tell, for now let’s watch his tried and true list play in the new Modern metagame Lands4 x Botanical Sanctum2 x Breeding Pool4 x Cavern of Souls2 x Mutavault4 x Snow-Covered Island4 x Waterlogged Grove Creatures4 x Benthic Biomancer4 x Kumena’s Speaker2 x Harbinger of the Tides4 x Lord of Atlantis4 x Master of the Pearl Trident4 x Merfolk Trickster2 x Tidebinder Mage4 x Merfolk Mistbinder2 x Merrow Reejerey Other4 x Aether Vial – Foil2 x Spreading Seas4 x Force of Negation Sideboard2 x Spreading Seas1 x Deprive4 x Collector Ouphe4 x Grafdigger’s Cage4 x Chalice of the Void Buy This List Round 1 vs. Niv-Mizzet Round 2 vs. Affinity Round 3 vs. Neoform Round 4 vs. Hardened Scales Affinity Round 5 vs. Eldrazi Tron Thanks for tuning in.
