Modern Monday: Mono Blue Merfolk

Around this time last year, I wrote an article on Modern Mono White Soldiers. That article was meant to be in a series of budget mono color Modern decks, a series I have as of yet not finished. I'll try not to take another three years to finish it, but this is the second installment of this series.

This seems like a graveyard mechanic to feed Shadows over Innistrad, although it's a great endgame for Limited. Might even be the next Desecration Demon for Standard.
