Botanical Sanctum is much better than Woodland Stream. It's more expensive, but pays off a lot. Replace the Cancel with the superior Disallow or Admiral's Order. The Jace planeswalker should be replaced with a Nissa, Steward of Elements, Nissa, Genesis Mage, or even Nissa, Nature's Artisan (the ultimate is overpowered with smaller merfolk tokens). Great deck FoxyMegan.

@NicholsGT That is amazing. Was laughing pretty hard at the "1-0" result xD. To be fair, it sounds like it came down to piloting in some of your games, so again great job man.
It doesnt surprise me you lost to aggro. I will try to make suggestions without breaking the rules of the challenge this time ;)
First off, you don't need 4 copies of Nezahal in the sb. It's a pretty cool card, but you should have plenty of big bois. This would make more room for anti-aggro in the side.
Shielded Aether Thief is an amazing suggestion, I'm so jalous I didn't think of it first. It helps A TON against aggro, and it still provides draw versus midrange. It even cashes in some energy. You can even play it after they attack with dudes like Earthshaker Khenra or Ahn-Crop Crasher.
The last suggestion is splashing green. But wait, before you say "I wanna play monoblue", you don't even have to change the mana-base. Add in a few Woodweaver's Puzzleknot, instead of the Glassblower's Puzzleknot. It provides more energy, but most importantly it provides 3-6 life. That is big money against aggro. The 4x Aether Hub should usually be consistent enough, but you could always add 2-3x Botanical Sanctum.
I cannot express how happy it makes me a deck like this exists and is wreaking havoc. It is so cheap as well! You are brilliant sir.

I could have been more specific in regard to your lands.
I thought something like this:

Your mana is a little slow.
I wouldn't mind seeing two more lands, as you are often mana screwed on Turn 4, when you want to start casting your bigger threats.
Since those decks outpace yours by targetting your Creatures, and board wiping, some Blossoming Defense and Heroic Intervention in the Sideboard would be more useful than extra copies of your Creatures.
I would try this:
You can play around with this numbers, but I would not go lower than three copies of each.
Hope that helps.

Maybe try to add a few more creatures? Nine seems very little for this kind of deck and you probably won't get enough damage in. I'd also consider elaborating the land base as it is pretty basic. Add in a few dual lands (Breeding Pool, Botanical Sanctum etc.).

A few things I can say about your list. Merfolk Branchwalker and Silvergill Adept, They are both strong 2 drops that replace themselves when you play them, which is very important when it comes to Standard Merfolk. With cards like Deeproot Elite and Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca being the backbone of the archtype, you really need a way to keep playing as many merfolk as you can without running out of cards in your hand, because once you do, you stop making your board stronger. Kumena's Speaker is by far the best 1 drop you can play, whereas Jade Bearer and Mist-Cloaked Herald are both okay, but nowhere near as powerful as Speaker. Shapers of Nature is a card I feel has no place being in any Merfolk list, it is just a much worse Kumena. Merfolk Mistbinder is another card you really need to have 4 of, especially when you're playing Jungleborn Pioneer or Deeproot Waters , speaking of, running both in your list can seem fun, in my opinion Waters is a much too slow card to be playing despite how much value it can give you. Hadana's Climb, is in sort of the same way, much too slow despite how much value it can get you. The last piece of advice I really have is that Herald of Secret Streams isn't what you want to be playing for a way to close the game, it can be destroyed when you go attacking with all of your buffed fish making for some really bad blocks that can lose you the game. Tempest Caller is a much safer and more reliable way to close out the game. Other than that for budget reasons I can see why you're playing Woodland Streams over Botanical Sanctum and only 2 copies of Kumena. Best of luck with your fish list, if you need any more help, you know where to find me.

I like where this is going. I feel like the land count might be a touch light tho, even with 8 cards fetching out lands.
And for personal taste, I think when I sleeve up my own version I'm going to swap the dryads for Deeproot Champion and Lay of the Land for Botanical Sanctum. Might slip in some more basics too because, at current, I don't have Baubles. And even 14 lands feels like I'll need approximately all of the mulligans.
