I'd look at skewing things towards more creatures- mainboarding servants, cutting the number of Increasing Savagery / Bioshift / Forced Adaptationfor cards like

Deeproot Champion Merfolk Branchwalker Feral Hydra Grim Initiate Mistcutter Hydra Pollenbright Druid Quirion Dryad Runaway Steam-Kin Scrounging Bandar Stromkirk Noble Simic Initiate Vastwood Hydra Young Wolf

Keeping your creature count high massively increases the reliability of lists like this without breakning the bank. I'd also look at Temple of Abandon , Magma Jet , Cream of the Crop and Thunderous Wrath - the red and green miracles are really good with a little support, especially maindeck noxious.

Quick Update! Simic Ascendancy added to side or grindy/control or pillow fort match ups. Benthic Biomancer replaces Deeproot Champion Lazotep Plating replaces Nissa, Steward of Elements or defensive purposes (also, so we have hexproof for the turn)

Well Growth Spiral is great in decks, that would love to have 4 mana on turn 3, and be able to either play turn 2 Remand or turn 3 Cryptic Command / Jace, the Mind Sculptor Unless there is some payoff, i don't think its worth the slot.

Deeproot Champion is a great card, but its not a great merfolk card. Its the second playset of Quirion Dryad at least for decks that used to play that card. I really don't see why it would mesh well with merfolk in general.

Also please consider the saying that "a modern deck needs to be able to - even if very rarely - goldfish turn 3 wins, or have interaction*". Right now interaction against graveyard decks is a MUST, its ok if you can devote enough sideboard space, but its much better if you have something mainboard like Scavenging Ooze . And you must have answers for creatures, modern is a creature centric format, and without that you can easily be prey to a LOT of decks.

*By interaction i mean doing anything that screws up their strategy, it doesn't matter if you Fatal Push Goblin Electromancer against storm, or you simply name blue/red with Iona, Shield of Emeria , both are interactions enough.
