If I were to only look at your pending deliveries, I'd make the following changes.

Empress Galina --> Lord of Atlantis

Kumena's Speaker --> Master of the Pearl Trident

Shaper Apprentice --> Realmwalker

Storm Sculptor --> Merfolk Skydiver

Rootwater Diver --> Svyelun of Sea and Sky

Lotus Blossom --> Hadana's Climb  Flip

Afiya Grove --> Utopia Sprawl

Thornwood Falls --> Flooded Grove

Vivid Grove --> Rejuvenating Springs

Littjara Mirrorlake --> Dreamroot Cascade

Quandrix Campus --> Windswept Heath

Battlegrowth --> Barkchannel Pathway  Flip

Once you make some additional updates and clean up your maybe list (I see some cards there that are also in your main board), I'll be happy to take another look! However, some other cards you should consider (that I don't see in either list) are Emperor Mihail II, Murkfiend Liege, Simic Ascendancy, Kindred Discovery, and Guardian Project. A more more expensive card option could be The Ozolith, but I'd wait on that to see if you like how the deck plays after some changes.

Rasaru Thank you for commenting and giving me some advice. I really appreciate this!

For my budget, I would like to include some cards that cost about 10€ each, in total I would say I can afford about 100€ +/-20 (the lesser the better).

After testing the Deck for my own, I agree that my manabase needs some fixes. I ordered some cards to upgrade this a bit (see below).

As I am trying to put as many counters on my board as possible, I feel, that the creatures that do not create tokens like Kumena's Speaker, could be excluded?

I got some pending deliveries. Here are the cards that I bought to upgrade it:

Lord of Atlantis, Master of the Pearl Trident, Snakeskin Veil, Realmwalker, Double Major, Forced Adaptation, Kiora, Master of the Depths, Deeproot Champion, Merfolk Skydiver, Primal Empathy, Vastwood Fortification  Flip, Oversimplify, Tangled Islet, Flooded Grove, Rejuvenating Springs, Utopia Sprawl, Dreamroot Cascade, Talisman of Curiosity, Simic Signet, Hadana's Climb  Flip, Barkchannel Pathway  Flip, Svyelun of Sea and Sky, Windswept Heath

I am not sure what to exclude and what to include.. (fyi I am playing for half a year, Thank you in advance!

Looks great! If you are going to add green to your deck, some Merfolk I recommend are:

Merfolk Mistbinder, Deeproot Elite, and Kumena's Speaker.

Some other Merfolk that are blue that you could consider are Merfolk Sovereign and Mist-Cloaked Herald.

From my understanding of Merfoilk, you want to play as many 1 and 2-drops to quickly flood the board with lots of creatures, and limit how many 3-drops you have (which is unfortunate, because Merfolk have lots of good 3-drops).

I enjoyed looking over this deck. Why no Tide Shaper? I agree that Kumena's Speaker did a LOT of work back in the day for the Fish, and to me, the Shaper is essentially another Speaker with so many people running Islands in their decks in Modern. And if they're not? Well then Shaper that sh!t. LOL

+1

Thanks!

zapyourtumor Thank you so much for your help :).

I'm not sure if I have enough targets for Fold, but I also don't cast Fold every game, and when I do sometimes its more relevant to protect my merfolk from boardwipes than it is to have an 8/8. I've added 2 Summoner's Pact which should help out with grabbing a target for fold (or cheating it out a turn earlier).

I've personally found Simic Sky Swallower's flying to be much much more relevant (and needed) in my metagame. In games where I lost with a swalllower on board, Inkwell wouldnt have changed the outcome. So I'm sticking with the swallower but I can imagine in a more competitive environment the leviathan is better.

I like Kumena's Speaker! I'll checkout if I can reliably get green on turn one, I fear my cheap manabase might not allow for both a blue and a green one-drop. I did add a 4th biomancer and the pacts in favor of Growth Spiral, so I'm hoping that sufficiently improves the curve.

Once, again, thanks for your thoughts!

Sorry about the late response; this deck looks really interesting. I like how it doesn't go all-in on the combo and sort of attacks on two axes, going wide with merfolk and going tall with leviathans.

Do you find that you have enough targets for fold? I feel like Simic Sky Swallower isn't really worth it since, even though you can hardcast it, it only costs 1-2 more mana to hardcast than combo it in and lose 2 cards. I think going up to 2 Inkwell might be better. I guess Incubation can help dig for fatties. I also like the synergy with Stormtide Leviathan stopping your opponents' creatures from attacking and allowing yours to attack unblocked. Stuff like Mosswort Bridge is also pretty cool.

Another concern I have is the curve. Tide Shaper being 1 or 2 cmc definitely helps, but I feel like you have a lot more 2 cmc cards. You could maybe lower the curve a little with Kumena's Speaker.

Corrosive Gale is some nice sideboard tech, I might try that out myself. I look forward to seeing where the deck goes!

@Igorimus: It's a good thought! Hall of Storm Giants IS a pretty medium option for agro compared to Lair of the Hydra. The question is more a matter of colors than card quality, tho. A lands utility in this deck is mostly secondary to its ability to cast my spells on curve. It makes mono green lands a severe liability, as I have Master of the Pearl Trident to cast on turn 2. The real question is Hashep Oasis vs lair, which is more of a toss up; both are excellent. I lean towards the former because I foresee having only blue lands to start in some games, which is mostly fine outside Kumena's Speaker, and topdecking an untapped green for my coco on t4 is very important to me.

Kumena's Speaker should come out for Phantasmal Image to copy your P/T buffs. the counter spells don't really fit in an aggro deck. you'll be casting creatures every turn and not have mana up to counter with, and you'll empty your hand too fast to play Force of Negation for free. instead you can use Collected Company to help swarm the field and Aquitect's Will to force an island onto your opponent before swinging with islandwalk. Tide Shaper can come out for 4 Misty Rainforest and -3 Merrow Reejerey and -1 Svyelun of Sea and Sky for +2 Kopala, Warden of Waves and the 4th copies of Collected Company / Aquitect's Will (after taking out the counter spells for the first 3 copies of each).

also no need to worry about Boil at all. nobody really uses that anymore, so you're free to just use the better lands like Misty Rainforest and Breeding Pool . Barkchannel Pathway  Flip would also be a good addition.
