Deck of the Week: U/W Merfolks

Hey guys. I was thinking of going tribal for this week's featured deck. I already mentioned tribal decks like Kithkins, Elves and Faeries on the previous weeks and this time I'll present to you the tribe where Ariel (the little mermaid) belongs. The people of the sea, the Merfolks!

The decklist is was piloted by Oliver Polak-Rottmann from the 2008 Magic The Gathering World Championships. What I like about his list are the four Wake Thrashers and three Reveillarks maindeck. These I guess is for straight to the point response for the deck's weaknesses, which is mass removal and lack of big threats. See the list below.

4 Adarkar Wastes
8 Island
4 Mutavault
4 Mystic Gate
4 Wanderwine Hub

4 Merrow Reejerey
3 Reveillark
4 Silvergill Adept
3 Sower of Temptation
4 Stonybrook Banneret
4 Sygg, River Guide
4 Wake Thrasher

4 Cryptic Command
2 Oblivion Ring
4 Sage's Dousing

3 Burrenton Forge-Tender
3 Flashfreeze
3 Glen Elendra Archmage
1 Oblivion Ring
1 Reveillark
1 Sower of Temptation
3 Wrath of God

As for his sideboard choices, it is also straightforward. Forge Tender and Flashfreezes for Red, Archmage for 5CC, and Wrath of God for random Aggro decks. For the other decks featured on the previous weeks, see it here.
