Hi really like your list

for the mainboard only 2 reccomendation are Seafloor Oracle the draw power is crazy and Mist-Cloaked Herald with Deeproot Elite and Merfolk Mistbinder it's a really good agro option also it help activating Seafloor Oracle Ik you have Herald of Secret Streams but having this creature on turn 1 is really good

for the sideboard Blossoming Defense is a classic and Heroic Intervention can win you impossible matchup. Spell Pierce can counter combo or help you against the heavier deck

Definitely need at least 3 Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca. I would also drop the Forerunner of the Heralds in favor of Deeproot Elite, and add Silvergill Adept as at least a 3 of for the card draw, and you definitely need Merfolk Mistbinder for the lord ability. Ancient Animus doesn't really fit your build because you don't have any legends, so I would honestly drop it. I would also drop Opt as you will have the card draw from the Adept. The last thing you might isadding in Tempest Caller for that late game push instead of banking on making your creatures unblockable. In the games that I played with Herald of Secret Streams I rarely lasted long enough to make it worth it (Those Goblin Chainwhirlers are insane!)

Personally, I would put cards like Shapers of Nature, which are good against control but terrible against aggro, in sideboard, maybe put in Deeproot Elite as another way to put counters on the folk. Maybe Aquatic Incursion?

Those are good ideas, but I prefer Jungleborn Pioneer as it is a good top deck after a wrath, and it provides more bodies for Deeproot Elite, Merfolk Mistbinder, and Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca. As for Curious Obsession, it could be good but it would mean going down some merfolk, making all the lords worse and Unclaimed Territory worse.

I feel like Vineshaper Mystic would serve you better than Jungleborn Pioneer given the focus on +1 counters. I know JP can give you a double trigger on Deeproot Elite, but Vineshaper Mystic lets you really choose your counters more effectively I think and is a better blocker/stand in, with the 3 base toughness.

Another card to consider is Curious Obsession, as the card advantage can be really impressive on something like Mist-Cloaked Herald, or anything else that is unblockable (flyer from Climb, anything else if you have Herald of Secret Streams out)

Deeproot Elite will usually work with Panharmonicon, but the ability won't trigger twice off a noncreature merfolk like Merrow Commerce entering the battlefield, and as Rhadamanthus mentioned Tatyova, Benthic Druid will trigger twice off an artifact land like Darksteel Citadel.

Rhadamanthus on Panharmonicon interactions

Yes for Deeproot Elite, no for Tatyova, Benthic Druid.

Note that Panharmonicon specifically mentions artifacts and creatures entering the battlefield. Deeproot Elite is triggered by Merfolk entering the battlefield, which will always be creatures. However, Tatyova is triggered by lands entering the battlefield. Panharmonicon won't do anything with that (unless the lands are somehow also artifacts and/or creatures).
