I'm pretty content with my curve at the moment so the higher mana suggestions I'm not really considering but if I ever need to tone the deck down Colossal Whale seems like a good way to do it. AEtherize is something to think about though...

Ok so here are a few suggestions. You take what you want from it
- Archetype of Imagination is better then islandwalk and pairs very well with Stormtide Leviathan
- Colossal Whale, has islandwalk and surprisingly is very good from my exp
- Lorthos, the Tidemaker, if you've seen what Yosei, the Morning Star can do to a player you would know this one is good too
- Scourge of Fleets is fantastic removal and for 2 more mana it's better then Aether Gale
- Shipbreaker Kraken isnt bad either
- Expropriate is such a good card should find room for this card
- Mind's Dilation is another great card
- AEtherize and AEtherspouts are great too

Hey Lissie, I saw your video and wanted to share my own experiences. I love these partners and think your deck is good, but still to much focused on Atraxa than Reyhan. My deck Witch-Maw | Khan and Deciple Counter Bonanza! explains what im about to say and more too, but here i go anyway.
For ramp i would add Ordeal of Nylea as it instantly resolves once Reyhan attacks.
Allot of your removal resolves on removing or exiling every creature, which sets you back as well. Possible even further then others since you need to grow back while other just throw big things on the field. But blue actually has allot to solve that! Curse of the Swine, AEtherize and Cyclonic Rift are examples i also use and work very well. Also Living Death is a must as it actually works with Reyhan's trigger to "paste" counters on your reanimated creatures after living death's trigger is finished! Finally Selfless Squire while not removing, prevents and creates counters!
Going on Reyhan can break the legend rule with Mirror Mockery. When enchanting Reyhan, he can now place 3 counters on 2 target creatures every attack as the copy "enters the battlefield with 3 counters". And after this copy "entered play" we have to sacrifice one Reyhan instantly since the Legend rule states we can't have more than one. But this is exactly what we want to avoid that exile effect on mirror mockery.
Now imagine a Rite of Replication and Strionic Resonator on a Corpsejack Menace or a Deepglow Skate ;). And if that was good, imagine the replication on Reyhan with the same explanation as with mirror mockery. But now we have 6 Reyhans. 5 which needs to be sacrificed, all on which 6 Reyhan abilities trigger and they all have 3 counters....... urgh all this math, my brain hurts.
The last issue i usually face with these partners is getting through an opponent. It's big fun having this big 80/80 Ishai but once you tap it, it can get blocked and eh... Which is where i added Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord and Ghoulcaller Gisa. So now we sacrifice Ishai, so something which isn't blocked gets these 79 counters, or we create 79 zombies or we just do 79 lifeloss.. so much alternate wincons!
Have fun on playing! I hope this helps!

Engulf the Shore is good sometimes, but the fact that you need other cards in play to hit the scariest creatures makes it seems too slow to be good.
I don't put planeswalkers on my lists based on ultimates, because those are a goal all on their own, so Gideon, Champion of Justice won't cut it for this list.
Agreed, the whole point of board wipes is to destroy lots of things, even with hexproof. So Hex is not good enough.
As always, thanks for the help!

AEtherize, Engulf the Shore... ? What about number specific cards ? Dusk/Dawn,
Elspeth, Sun's Champion -3 ? Gideon, Champion of Justice ridiculous -15...
I'm not really sure so I'm suggesting different things... The list seems almost complete I think.

SteemedMuffins thanks for the recommendation! You're correct that in isolation Whelming Wave does more for 4 mana than AEtherize. However, as a sorcery Whelming Wave is not a valid target to tutor with Merchant Scroll. My goal was to include a sideboard answer to mass creatures with CMC 4 or less that can be tutored for with Merchant Scroll, and as far as I know AEtherize is the best card currently available. Let me know if you think another spell would do the same job better!
