Looks good so far. These might interest you: Distant Melody, Ribbons of the Reikai, Bident of Thassa, Reconnaissance Mission, Coastal Piracy, Kindred Discovery, Breath of Fury, Tears of Rage, Coat of Arms, Shared Animosity, Cathars' Crusade, Disrupt, Narset's Reversal, Spark Double, Decoy Gambit, Shieldmage Advocate (helps your opps reuse their removal against each other)

Nice deck. I play a very similar and very mean Kumena deck. I also went back and forth on +1/+1 counters and ultimately did settle on it as I felt that combat damage was the most appropriate win con for merfolk (in part because I also play Legacy Fish). I don’t think assembling and executing your infinite mana combo is more efficient than winning with unblockable +100/+100 merfolk or generating so much card draw that you win with Thassa's Oracle. Both of my options also synergize directly with your commander. +1/+1 counters are accelerated by Doubling Season and Hardened Scales. You can flash in Simic Ascendancy on the end step just before your turn, and with a little finesse, win. With Doubling Season, either Kiora Planeswalker is a nasty surprise as well. Massive card draw comes not only from Seafloor Oracle, but from Bident of Thassa, Coastal Piracy, and now Reconnaissance Mission. My version of this deck replaces your standard countermagic and removal suite with Force of Will, Force of Negation, Mana Drain, and Cyclonic Rift but you probably don’t need to be told that these cards are very good. Gaea's Cradle and Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip are insanely good in merfolk aggro. The only non-merfolk creatures I include (aside from Seahunter) Are Deadeye Navigator, Deepglow Skate, Collector Ouphe, and Vigor. I should say, my merfolk deck is known to beat the seaweed out of many competitive decks. I hope this helps.

Nice deck. +1 from me.
Maybe you want to try Teleportal. CMC5 is high but unblockable for the hole team and a prowess trigger is nice. With a token strategy I would suggest Coastal Piracy, Bident of Thassa and / or Reconnaissance Mission for card draw.

Nice deck, Mat!
First thing I noticed is 43 lands. That's about as much as I run in my Azusa, Lost but Seeking EDH. I see you like your nonbasics, as I do, but even in a 5 color deck where mana fix is the key to success like this one, 43 is a little much I think. Couldn't you try to remove some of those? I'd be inclined to remove three to five filter lands such as Cascade Bluffs. (I get that Sliver Queen likes her mana, by the way, and I also see that with Training Grounds, every land is a sliver...)
Furthermore, I love your Coastal Piracy. Hard to judge how it performs, but probably quite well in this deck. If you like it, it recently got an upgrade with Reconnaissance Mission. In addition, I'm a huge fan of Kindred Discovery which does pretty much the same here - but better, for one mana more.

Did you consider Kindred Discovery? Or is it simply too good? xD

Elmalco thanks for the suggestions. Winds of Change is one I planned on adding but at the time did not have budget for, but plan on adding soon after some trades. Coastal Piracy was in my original list and for some reason I took it out, but I do plan on adding Reconnaissance Mission.
And lastly, Arjun, the Shifting Flame is a card I have and have tested in the deck but don't have much experience with so I might add again and do some more play tests.
Thank you again!
