Channel Nikachu: Simic Merfolk WITHOUT Silvergill Adept! Nikachu September 5, 2019 Channel Nikachu In a world where everyone is trying to win between turns 1-4, Gut Shot doesn’t cut it anymore. Silvergill, the staple that used to grind out the opponents in card advantage, has no place in Modern where you die with a million cards in hand. Silvergill’s 1 toughness makes it very difficult to attack into creatures or block opposing ones. Not to mention the 1 toughness is vulnerable to format staples such as Gut Shot, Lava Dart, or Wrenn and Six,. By removing Silvergill Adept we can add more one-drops: Benthic Biomancer. With a combined 8 one-drops, and 14 lords, the Merfolk deck is more aggressive than it has ever been!
