Add another Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca, because there is low chance you'll draw the one that you have. Maybe replace some of your instants with River Heralds' Boon. Consider Deeproot Waters. Make it 3 Herald of Secret Streams. Take away all Swift Wardens as some merfolks already have hexproof, and it's only till end of turn. Replace it with Kopala, Warden of Waves, since his effect is permanent. But, remember, he's a legendary creature, so have 2-3 of him, not 1 or 4. Nice deck, keep up the good work, hope my suggestions help!

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.

Press into Service is +1/+1 counter steal spell that I forgot!
Hmmm. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed,Drana, Liberator of Malakir, and Feast on the Fallen seem like good options. Maybe Simic Fluxmage or Olivia, Mobilized for War, though I don't like the discard, but if you have Necropotence and the like that can be mitigated somewhat. It also occurred to me that Herald of Secret Streams and Flayer of the Hatebound might be good in here!

Why do you only have 1 of some of the best merfolk? I would add a Deeproot Waters, as it is overpowered in merfolk decks. Add 1-2 more Deeproot Elite, Forerunner of the Heralds, Herald of Secret Streams, and Merfolk Mistbinder. Maybe remove Riverwise Augur and Merfolk Looter. Nice deck, keep up the good work, hope my suggestions help.

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.

Great deck, this has given me a lot of good ideas. A question, if I may: Do you have a way (such as Forerunner of the Heralds to tutor up Merfolk cards that you need (i.e: Deeproot Elite, Herald of Secret Streams, etc.). If not, do you believe that you can reliably get these creatures that you need? I would be very interested to hear from you. Thank you for your time...

I have found a great interaction with Aluren & Vizier of the Menagerie it allows you to play creatures of 3 cmc or less from your deck without paying mana cost, sure Vizier doesn't trigger Ezuri but i think it's good enough of an effect.
I'm going to test Path of Discovery, It looks promising.
Herald of Secret Streams, close to a must have.
Cephalid Constable this thing is evil when it connect
Walking Ballista , Thrasios, Triton Hero , Duskwatch Recruiter Flip good target with the enormous quantity of mana produceable with or without combo,like Crystalline Crawler , Gyre Sage and Duskwatch Recruiter Flip.
