fish are cheap and efficient creatures. slowly u can play them out of a game by islandwalking or lifegain or whatever. there's a difference within fish decks tho...

if you are aggro with all the islandwalkers and change-their-land spells... then its not as important. if you are summon the school/judge of currents or whatever... you are creating a loop they cant fight trhrough and counters will stop their final revels and whatnot.

make sure that you use counters only for a turn 2/3 "jump way ahead of you" card or bombs. dont broken ambitions a briarhorn just cuz u can. chances are its not affecting the gamestate enough for them to catch up. save it for real ttrouble.

In some formats counters are too slow and are not good, such as in Time Spiral cancel wasn't great. In Lorwyn however there are decks where they can be good.

Definitely yes. Most merfolk limited decks tend to lose to mass removal more than other archetypes (lots of 1 toughnes dudes) and counters are the best answer to them.

Its worth it to run them, especially if you've dipped into faeries and have plenty of guys with flash.

I'm trying really hard not to flame you, but I'm just curious: Are you a forum troll on purpose, or just a well meaning guy who's illiterate and otherwise completely unable to communicate?

lennin is, to the best of my knowledge and experience, almost down to Sarcastic_Rat level of insipidity. Trolls get angry when you call him one.
