What drew you to playing merfolk and why?

New question: What are the chances to you guys that we get some new fish toys to work with?

I first had the chance to play a "remotely merfolk build" back in 2003. Actually, it was one of the first decks I ever played. It was basically a collectible-deck from the 2001 worlds that a friend had lent me. The deck played around Opposition + Static Orb. Back then, most of the merfolks were fairly poor lol. I recall the deck had "merfolk of the pearl trident" and other mediocrities.
It was not until Lorwyn's early 2008 Standard format that I built a great UW merfolk deck (thanks to all additions that came with this new block) After, I took a hiatus from magic for several years.
Earlier this year, around March or April I had returned to MODO and was looking to make a not so expensive modern deck to begin with. I'm certainly grateful as I used old primer and the basis given by Nikachu to construct the deck. It won me a couple of nice tournaments irls, as also perform decently in numerous daily events on modo.
Again, I took a rest from magic whole summer, until very recently. Now to my great surprise I've found the deck has improved further with Harbinger of the Tides.
Just completed a league, 4-1. Lost that match due to trusting my luck too much in game 3 of the last match. Was playing goblins, and drew an initial hand with 3 harbingers, one tidebnder, 2 lords, and one island. Was on the draw and though I could perhaps draw that needed land or a vial, I didn't in whole game needless to say the results.
I would like to discuss with you all people whatever doubts you have about the deck. I can humbly suggest some tips, or of course you can to me as well.
I have seen that many decklists are currently running nil vapor snags. Based on my experience today, I believe that quite ironically taking the snags out deterioate our game against control. Not so many people seem to realize how useful it can be to bounce a silvergil adept to your own hand when the opponent is low in lifepoints and casts supreme verdict.
