Last game of this video, I believe the term is I "shat pant"
LogiHack (10 days ago)
That game made the whole vid worth it
Curtis Thurman (10 days ago)
Would love a Twitch Stream archive channel or something cause so many times I'll be rewatching your older videos, hear you talk about streaming more of the deck then go to your Twitch page and see the video has been auto deleted. Also would be nice to view them at work too.

Between not conceding that game when the board got ridiculous, and surprise Act of Treason, I'm gonna go ahead and give the honorable dino player a "Nice!"
You should try Bioessence hydra with this deck. The high loyaltyy on Kiora makes it a very big threat
The Deaderman (11 days ago)
Game 1 you should have won had you untapped a land instead of the druid
Zach Haga (2 days ago)
Sawtooth would enable the Majesty and Kiora, and additional landys for Krasis!
Dakota Huckins (4 days ago)
I REALLY wanna see activate arkbow discarding ferox now pls

X = 21, not something you get to say everyday!

Your face was legit the pikachu meme when act of treason was cast. At 34:12
IHATETHISGAME!!! (5 days ago)
I drafted around kiora and went 5-0 with that deck. Her plus proliferate is a great combo!
atlys (7 days ago)
Losing to MonoRed back-to-back for that *THICC JELLY BOI* was so worth it.
Juliett A (7 days ago)
Need to give a shout out to Schiuma93, that act of treason was epic.
Robert Wildt (8 days ago)
Act of treason hooked my replay button 5th times xD

i used everything you taught me with wolves and added that to this.

Bioessence hydra with all those planeswalkers?

Shiuman93: Nobody expects the act of treason!
brendan louis (10 days ago)
is he gonna realise kiora can untap a land?
Cédric Gilbert (10 days ago)
ÉYou really should run Arboreal GRazerz instead of lanowars, its insane against most of the aggro matchup
Original Beard (10 days ago)
Arkbow is nice, but Deliver Unto Evil's art is amazing.
Jesse Thayn (10 days ago)
could you make a deck with new Vivien, wilderness reclamation and possibly unsealing?
David Snedden (10 days ago)
I had a buddy experimenting with the 4 power matters 2 drop and bloomhulk, I think bloomhulk might have issues in standard, but it was pretty impressive building Kronch Wrangler into a 4/3 trampler in just one card. Always fun to jank it up.

Veraska deathtouch tribal. Your welcome.
Eduardo O'Brien (10 days ago)
En ese momento Merchant sintió el verdadero Terror
Tony (10 days ago)
How about playing the dino that lets you play two lands... that bigbig krasis
twilightcall06 (10 days ago)
The look on your face when he used Act of Treason was priceless.
Julian Tennyson (10 days ago)
25:50 it's because it has an animation where for each forest you tap, nissa adds a mana. The mana comes from the forest and then from nissa
SamuelSculpture (10 days ago)
Omg it was worth to watch until the end! 😂 Luckily you didnt have 22/22 Krazis!
Henry Gandelman (10 days ago)
That act of treason was pure gold, I laughed till my face hurt
Chris Carrington (10 days ago)
Is super friends control the most bs and boring deck to play against?
Nicolas Nepomuceno (10 days ago)
that was one hell of a last game lmao
mark markson (10 days ago)
I am VERY unimpressed with Kiora in every instance I see her.
izopropanol (10 days ago)
image if the last opponent had Thud as a sac outlet
Faenean (10 days ago)
For the love of god untap the lands with Kiora, could have played off 4 lands
Anthony Elwood (10 days ago)
Act of treason was amazing! High five to that guy

34:10 The butt clench felt around the world.
Tony Jara (10 days ago)
Bad plays man.
Hobbes95 (10 days ago)
I tried to build a good stompy deck with Kiora as well, and while I did try some more cards that are worth a look like Bioessence Hydra and Traxos, I still failed to arrive at a list that really performed to my liking. Traxos is really good though with all the Planeswalkers, especially Kiora, the Arkbow and of course Ghalta.
Beans (10 days ago)
Could you try orzhov token spam? Built around afterlife, open the grave and other token boosters. I particularly like using whisper and reassembling skeletons
Sebastian (10 days ago)
Awesome twist at the end! 😂😂😂
Patrick Xie (10 days ago)
Too many ads
Luiz Filipe (10 days ago)
Man those mono red are spoiling the game
Christina J (10 days ago)
So. You may be doing it for other reason but you can use Kiora to untap the land and play the lanawar elf for the extra land so you could have had 6 mana at 13:30. You’ll have enough life in kiora to keep untapping the 5/5 since the first 2 turns you didn’t
BD35 MTG (10 days ago)
I would love to see an Ashiok build-around deck. Love that card.
THE WhiteHotD (10 days ago)
Playing stompy doesn't even consider goreclaw or carnage tyrant..
Mattdew (10 days ago)
merchant: "ha! you can't beat my 21/21 flying trample!" schiuma93: *act of treason the 21/21 flying trample* merchant: *nervous blocking*
Mojo The War Dog (10 days ago)
KIORA CA. UNTAP LANDS
The Forsworn King (10 days ago)
If you had made that Krasis any bigger you would have died
Fir3SouL (10 days ago)
Do you have a deck around Sorin ? I mean since his name is also mine I'd like to know how to build him :D . Thanks !
S. Graham (10 days ago)
7 planeswalkers and no Bioessence Hydra in simic. You get to play MORE HYDRAS MERCHANT. MORE HYDRAS!
ZT FA (10 days ago)
Act of treason!! That face you made!!!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
Wizard Rezerved (10 days ago)
Does he already opened his jap box?
Chaoslorden (10 days ago)
I love Kiora in my Gruul deck as it works well with riot mechanics. Her and new Domri keeps up a really high pressure.
Morgrok Kaboom (10 days ago)
Don't forget Goreclaw it's a great card to add in this deck
Marco Dola (10 days ago)
"When the man with an Hydroid Krasis meets the man with a mono red", you said, "the man with the Krasis is a dead man." Let's see if it's true.
Farming Wolves (10 days ago)
I generally watch these as the last thing I leave on across the room as I lay down for bed. That last game had me laughing so hard that I couldn't sleep for another hour. Worth it though!
Gregory Bauman (10 days ago)
I've got a Huatli deck I've been working on, I'll have to post the decklist I've started up.
Cryo Phoenix (11 days ago)
could you redo a beamsplitter wizards list now that the war of the spark meta is more settled in?
Luther Turk (11 days ago)
Growth Spiral or Circuitous Route will help with that Ramp issue...
Gibraltar Gamers (11 days ago)
I love how your videos just tell us "Play a Red Burn deck if you want to win without effort."
Angel Custodius (11 days ago)
That act of treason was hilarous man, your face is epic!! XDD
Zachary Braverman (11 days ago)
So much monored! Your video makes me feel good about not playing Arena.
アップルパイ (11 days ago)
do you know why kiora is so good? Because she can untap lands! She can fcking untap lands!!!! As I screamed internally at myself while watching this... SHE CAN FCKING UNTAP LAAAANNNDDDSSSSSS!!!!!
Spencer4686 (11 days ago)
Kiora and Bioessence hydra is the missing combo here. Haha love that ending your face! 🤣
CallsignGecko (11 days ago)
Holy shit was that close. I'd run a reliquary tower if you want to keep big hands. But I thought you were gonna deck yourself for a minute.
Sgt. Hugh Janus (11 days ago)
33:28 Can't wait for this on mobile lol
Zeke Lance (11 days ago)
If you run kiora and nissa but you dont run bioessence hydra, you are doing it wrong
Mr Wolfers (11 days ago)
That first game was hard to watch, you left a lot of plays on the table that could've bought you more time and health

Caleb C (11 days ago)
What an absolutely ridiculous out of nowhere act of treason
Amir4king (11 days ago)
Im liking this just for that Act of Treason
mason turpin (11 days ago)
Soooooooo...... How about that act of treason deck I mentioned a couple videos ago? 😂
Olivier Bailly (11 days ago)
not sure what you're hoping for in that deck, with zero removal. You're getting motorboated by mono-red which did not even have such a crazy run. But really, letting opponent draw 3 instead of taking 4 damage is not the right choice. It has to be lethal for you to actually let the draw happen, mono-red will do way more than 4 damage across 3 cards.
Putrefax (11 days ago)
Plural of Krasis would probably be closer to Krases
Jason Sargent (11 days ago)
do you not consider Solar Blaze to be a form of board wipe? I enjoy it in my "boros" deck.
Brandon Mercuri (11 days ago)
That Act of Treason was wild!
Fofee (11 days ago)
“That’s burn not going to my face.” - Merchant’s favorite catchphrase.

anyone else think hes using a voice changer and his real voice is actually squeaky high?
Ash Cossey (11 days ago)
I lost it at “taste death elf!”
Nick B (11 days ago)
arena is broken for new people. I try and learn, but casual is full of meta decks, I go to ranked with your red burn deck and get to gold 4 and never can escape. It's frustrating to play against people who obviously spent a lot of money with fancy sleeves and crap and all these cards and know that I'll never be able to escape from gold 4. They need to let us talk to the other person instead of the stupid emote thingies. At least then maybe I could enrage some folks into conceding, but ths shit is for the birds. (and before anyone says "maybe it's not for you, blah blah blah" I was having fun then WAR came out and it's gotten retarded and impossible to play without facing the same 3 decks over and over even in casual . I thought I'd join the crowd with mono red, but not only is it apparently shitty, it isn't nearly as fun as janky stuff. I must admit, I am getting more satisfaction roping people and walking away on my turn to have a smoke when they counter my 45th creature in a row than I am playing half the time)
Nocktern (11 days ago)
Awesome last game! Way unexpected, I was wondering why there was no surrender and then Act of Treason.
jazzy jazz (11 days ago)
After last video I now, we know and you know that what you really want in this deck is a pelakka wurm
Cole Breiland (11 days ago)
Goreclaw and Sphinx of Foresight could be good in this.
mikebott (11 days ago)
Oh dear mate ! the Crisis of the Krasis !
Maou Bakura (11 days ago)
This was such a spicy deck! I definitely see maybe cutting Arkbow for something a bit more useful? I might try running this with Goreclaw, since he makes 4 power or greater cost a bit less to cast. Thats got some cool synergy with Kiora too.
Mack Risbeck (11 days ago)
Nezehal...
Zeroko V (11 days ago)
So much of a big boi it gets stolen lmao

Can’t believe you didn’t play Bioessence Hydra
wolf man (11 days ago)
Turns out that fighting that llanowar elf at 31:15 saved your life
Can you do tibalt
Jaapples Po (11 days ago)
The bear!!
XFrozenAshX (11 days ago)
I feel like taking the damage from Risk Factor is almost entirely worth it over letting them draw 3 cards. Likely chance is that they'll draw at the very least a card which deals 3 burn alongside the 2 other cards. That act of treason was gross though holy shit. xD
Anmesh Senapati (11 days ago)
The amount of mono red I saw today scarred me
MrAgentIncognito (11 days ago)
If someone wanted to play this style of deck, I'd suggest considering Gift of Paradise. It works with both Nissa and Kiora, plus it gives life and mana ramping by itself. I'm not sure how good Goreclaw or Bioessence Hydra would work in this deck, but I'm disappointed Merchant didn't even mention them.
Gabriel Andrade (11 days ago)
34:12 You may not like but this is what a peak plot twist looks like
HakureiIllusion (11 days ago)
34:10 It was at this moment Merchant knew, he fucked up.
SmokeEveryWeed 420 (11 days ago)
I cringed so hard when you played nissa of off your lands and not by double tapping incubation at 30:56 would habe been sooooo much more mana :/
MrSalzik (11 days ago)
Why did they make Kiora sound like that!? D:
