Wednesday - Lord of Atlantis

The lord for the Merfolk, and a classic and iconic card. There's not a lot to say about him except that he works quite well in aggressive Merfolk decks. Oh wait...aggressive Merfolk? Never mind. This guy is pretty much restricted to casual play only, where he can be quite handy. However, don't bother in tournament play.

In limited, he's really hard to get, and there's not enough Merfolk in Time Spiral block to make him worthwhile. He'd be great to have in Lorwyn block, but unfortunately he wasn't reprinted in it.

Lord of Atlantis

This card makes Merfolk viable. Most Merfolks are rather weak and need some pumping up. This card gives pumping up and evasion all packed into a 2 mana 2/2. That is extremely efficient. It's not even Legendary which allows for multiple copies to be played for more pumping. Merfolk isn't going to win any constructed tournaments by tapping tricks, so it's up to efficient beaters like this to bring home the gold. If you play Merfolks, you should play this. Unless of course you're playing limited and it's impossible to play one.

Constructed: 3.5/5
Casual: 3.5/5
Limited: 1/5

Lord of Atlantis
 
Generations have proved the power of Lord of Atlantis.  You get a couple small blue guys out, and then this comes down.  Merfolk are also fairly adept at turning people's lands into islands, so this is sort of like a mini-Overrun on a 2/2 for 2 in an aggressive Merfolk deck.  And blue rarely gets 2/2's on turn two, so this is powerful even if you don't have that many Merfolk.  Its only downside is that it's UU, so you may have trouble with it if you're not monoblue.  Since new Merfolk are blue and white, this creates a bit of conflict in deck choices.  But that's alright.
