I would add Jadelight Ranger and Walk the Plank as removal

Good stuff. Looks like a good mix of control and big creatures. Here's some thoughts.

Coralhelm Commander- cost 7 mana to make a 4/4 flyer that pumps merfolk by 1. You could do the same in enchantment form for 3 mana with Gaea's Anthem.

Jadelight Ranger provides card selection, but I think you can get more value in top deck manipulation from Sensei's Divining Top.

Master of Waves seems to operate on his own and does not synergize well with any other cards. Bident of Thassa may assist with the card draw game that you are playing.

Lifecrafter's Bestiary seems like a good addition. Harmonize might be a good cut. It is valuable but you have so many ways to draw cards, that one time card draw might not be needed.

Ramp it up some. Casting one or two merfolk a turn is going to be too slow. You'll need to spend early game ramping and controlling the game. Mid game you should be setting up your enchantments and artifacts that pump things. Late game you drop a ton of merfolk and swing for the win. One or two merfolk at a time will be susceptible to board wipes and removal that will just happen organically during the game. Thran Dynamo, Awakening Zone, Explosive Vegetation, and Skyshroud Claim can help get a ton of mana going in the early to mid game.

Best of luck.

Winding Constrictor into Jadelight Ranger often gives you a 6/5 on turn 3...

I think you can sideboard Kopala, Warden of Waves and play one more Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca. You got Blossoming Defense for the spot removal. You might want to play two, three, or even four copies of Spell Pierce which can protect against spot removal and sweepers. I think this deck also wants to play Deeproot Waters, which interacts really well with Mimic and Elite. I would choose one or the other of those two. Maybe play two of each... I would play Jadelight Ranger for the card filtering as well. It's a solid three drop that can come in with some solid power on turn three.

TepigAggro 20 lands is fine, only reason i'd use 22 is if i had Herald of Secret Streams in the main. Also, River Heralds' Boon isn't necessary in the deck.

colton815 Nissa, Steward of Elements has been in previous iterations and does have her uses, though I'm still on the fence about whether or not she should be in the final list.

I've been mainly debating on Spell Pierce or Siren Stormtamer into main and cutting Negate from the side.

Other than that, other thoughts I've been having are Curious Obsession, Aggressive Urge, Induced Amnesia, Jadelight Ranger as a hesitant possible and Sworn Guardian. Most of this is sideboard tech, though a couple have huge advantages if put in the main.

TepigAggro i would only run 22 lands if my curve topped at 4 with Herald of Secret Streams. Also, River Heralds' Boon isn't what I want to be using turn 2.

colton815 Nissa, Steward of Elements has her uses, I will admit, though her 0 is a blowout if it's not a creature cmc <= x (x being her loyalty) or a land and her +2 is only really useful if I have a draw effect available.

I've been debating about putting in Siren Stormtamer or Spell Pierce in the main and removing Negate from the sideboard; other than these, I've been debating on Sworn Guardian or possibly Jadelight Ranger for a 2 mana 1/3 or a 3 mana 4/3.

Other cards I've been thinking of, most of them being side tech, are Curious Obsession, Aggressive Urge, or Induced Amnesia. The Obsession would be great on the Mist-Cloaked. turn 2 a 2/2 that draws me a card; Urge is a 2 mana instant speed gives +1/+1 ueot and draws a card; and then Induced Amnesia would be for times where I've only lands or otherwise unplayable hands.

Thoughts?

TepigAggro I would go back to 22 lands if I had say 2-4 Herald of Secret Streams in the main, but I don't, River Heralds' Boon is good, I'll admit, but not what I want to spend turn 2 using.

colton815 I have had Nissa, Steward of Elements in previous iterations before and do love the Scry/Free creature/land, though I'm not sure that's what the deck wants to be doing on turn 3. It always blows to use her 0 and scry up a noncreature or a creature above Nissa's loyalty at that moment, and not get anything out of it.

Honestly, my main debate for the replacement of Metallic Mimic has been either Spell Pierce or Siren Stormtamer and free up some room from the side by cutting Negate, though I've also been pushing around Curious Obsession or Aggressive Urge as the +/+ and draw are nice, and Urge is pretty cheap cmc wise, given its 2 mana instant speed +/+ ueot and draw a card in green.

I also recently cut Herald of Secret Streams from the side, and I know he's so good given all the +/+ counter production available in the list, but he's just costly at 4 cmc and is almost either necessary on turn 4 to make dudes unblockable or just a dead 2/3 cuz nobody has counters.

I've also recently been thinking about Sworn Guardian given its a 2 mana 1/3, or even possibly (but hesitantly) the Jadelight Ranger for the double explore.

Though I'm not entirely sure what I should put in the sideboard as replacement for the Herald, though maybe that's where I should put Curious Obsession or Aggressive Urge, and I've also been debating about Induced Amnesia for hands that are full of lands and nothing to do.
