Move Natural State to the SB and cut KotR down to 2. It's a great card but your list isn't optimized for it.

I think I would rather have Hinterland Harbor over Unclaimed Territory. Allows you to use colored mana on all spells, rather than just creatures. Also, if you feel like ~$10 for a land isn't too much, Mutavault is great in Merfolk.

As for sideboarding, counters like Negate, Dispel, and Unified Will are always nice to have. Maybe Dismember against big creature decks like Eldrazi. Speaking of Eldrazi, Ceremonious Rejection is a must-have in any blue deck with this meta. Green gives you enchantment and artifact hate like Naturalize and Natural State. And as any modern deck goes, graveyard hate needs to be in your sideboard. I would go with Relic of Progenitus.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Thanks for your comment, ThallionDarkshine!

I really do like the 1cmc of Natural State, and it does hit a lot of the problematic artifacts that I need to take care of. I have considered Deglamer and Unravel the Aether, but I'm not the hugest fan. As for Krosan Grip, most of the things I would need it for I can just counter, and I'm not particularly bothered by somebody cracking a Nevinyrral's Disk or something, as I rarely have much of a board presence.

Collective Restraint is nice, but I find that generally the 2-mana tax from Ghostly Prison and Propaganda is enough to discourage people from attacking me, and I doubt increasing that by 1 mana would change much. Also, eww, that art.

As for Brainstorm, I only really like it when I can count on having a shuffle effect 80% of the time or so, and I don't know if this deck is there yet.

Finally, yes, I will absolutely add a Disallow, I'm just working on acquiring one. Thanks for your suggestions!

Is the 1-cmc of Natural State that much better than the added flexibility of something like Krosan Grip or even just Deglamer or Unravel the Aether?

Collective Restraint is a nice pillow-fort card that is often works better than Ghostly Prison or Propaganda in a 3-color deck. Brainstorm might be better than one of your sorcery speed cantrips, you have a decent amount of ramp and fetches to shuffle your library. Disallow is an incredibly powerful counterspell, able to shut down powerful abilities as well as spells.

It seems the main differences are the sideboard

It means that user jing1125 liked your deck, so he added it to his folder. Kinda like favoriting things so you can easily find them.

My name is red because I donated some money to tappedout and then I could change the color.

Unless you play in a very artifact/enchantment heavy meta, I wouldnt count Natural State as a removal, though it could be a fine sideboard.

Try looking at some of the green merfolk from the new expansion, this deck has some G/U Merfolk Standard.

Let me know how it goes on friday

I'll ditch Jungle Delver.

Thanks for the clarification around Stonybrook Banneret.

As for removal, I have three, but as you said, four is better. Maybe I could add in one more Echoing Truth or Natural State (I Already have them).

Curiosity and Distant Melody sound interesting, but after playing with the deck a bit I don't feel like it needs draw cards. I'm going to play a bunch this Friday, so I'll get a better sense of what it needs then.

Also, why does your username show up in red?

Thanks for the advice Baconfish!

This deck looks very promising! I guess Noble Hierarch is missing for budget reasons?
I think Disenchant in your sideboard isn't optimal, it could either be a cheaper alternative (Fragmentize, Natural State, Nature's Claim) or a creature (Reclamation Sage, Vithian Renegades, Kataki, War's Wage, Phyrexian Revoker).
