Fish is a collective name for a series of decks, usually blue with the occasional splash in another color and utilizes cheap creatures, usually of the type Merfolk , and countermagic to keep the opponent at bay. What Fish decks have in common is they are meta-decks, designed to beat what they will play against. Fish's biggest advantage is its adaptability, and Fish can be tuned to win against almost any deck. A player playing with Fish must therefore have a lot of cards, since their build will vary over time, and have a good eye for which decks that will be played during the next tournament.
None of the individual cards in Merfolk are overtly powerful, which is probably what turns some number of people away. At the heart of it all are the Lords. Lord of Atlantis is the original lord, first appearing in Alpha. Master of the Pearl Trident is nearly a functional reprint, with one small difference.

Gameplay of the collectible card game Magic: The Gathering is fueled by each player's deck of cards, which constitute the resources that player can call upon to battle their opponents in any given game. With more than ten thousand unique cards in the game, a considerable number of different decks can be constructed. Each card is designed to have certain strengths and sometimes weaknesses and therefore a significant part of the game is determined by which cards a player chooses to include in their deck. Broadly speaking, decks can be loosely classified based on their play style and mode of victory.
