Good choice of commander for a sea monsters deck. I have an Urza sea monsters deck, trying to use Urza's ability to tap artifacts for blue mana to ramp hard into those big blue beauties. It still ends up playing like an Urza artifact shenanigans deck though, because it's Urza..
So my next move is to make it an Arithmexes deck instead! The inclusion of green for its ramp should make it playable. I think that you should consider Circuitous Route, Nyxbloom Ancient, Explosive Vegetation, and Frontier Siege. This last one only produces green mana but holy god does it produce mana. Two green on EACH main phase, and those blue beauties need a lot of any color mana regardless.
Temur Sabertooth can save as many critters from board wipes as you have the mana for, as well as itself. Breaching Leviathan is nasty. Tidespout Tyrant is not a fish but is definitely a blue sea monster and does work. I love the inclusion of Tale's End. So unexpected and great for dealing with those obnoxious sac engine decks. Similar to Soul's Majesty, Return of the Wildspeaker will draw a ton of cards in a deck like this and has the added upside of being used as a finisher.
I also love the various umbras, generally, for commander decks. Eel Umbra has flash and will unexpectedly save one of your fish from removal, and Bear Umbra will do work in any green deck. Lastly, Capsize in a deck like this is great fun, and flavorful, but can produce saltiness when bought back repeatedly.
If you are interested, this is my Urza deck: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/urza-old-man-of-the-sea/?cb=1593614404
It has a strong draw package.

discipleofgary73 Great Whale is gas, was perfect back before they printed 'rix and the commander was Taniwha . Played High Tide , Conjurer's Closet , Nim Deathmantle you mentioned and super stupid stuff like Sky Swallower + Soul Foundry + Donate + Mindslaver . Sadly Breaching Leviathan and Slinn Shady don't trigger on flickering... but I'll try fitting the whale back in :)

Personally i'd get rid of: Cloud Manta, Deep-Sea Terror, Deepglow Skate, Boundless Realms, Farseek, Genesis Storm, Nissa's Renewal, Skyshroud Claim, Giant Growth, Glissa's Scorn, Naturalize, Pulse of Murasa, Sweep Away
and replace with things like: Hedron Crab, Tidal Kraken, Serpent of the Endless Sea , Kraken of the Straits, Isleback Spawn, Grozoth, Sealock Monster, Stormsurge Kraken, Benthic Behemoth, Breaching Leviathan, Guard Gomazoa, Gomazoa, Dormant Gomazoa, Broken Bond

Instead, for bodies I've decided to use alot of draw in the form of Arcanis the Omnipotent, Azami, Lady of Scrolls, Kefnet the Mindful and to make up for the major loss in disruption (somewhat) Tidespout Tyrant. Commander's Sphere is slightly slower but makes a fine rock that comes in untapped and Gridlock and Aqueous Form to keep a consistent Instant and Enchantment count while still getting the job done. After a few test hands it seems to work out, so I'm looking forward to subbing them in when necessary even after i get the correct cards.
Sorry for the long comment, as it was mostly for me. I'm pretty new around here, but I think the draw creatures at least could be useful and potentially make room for other switches.

Breaching Leviathan Doesn't work because you arent casting it

As I referenced in the forum post, Eerie Interlude, Momentary Blink, and Panharmonicon would slide nicely into this deck. Ephara, God of the Polis is a good draw engine for a blink deck. Conjurer's Closet is another all-star in flicker decks.
For what to cut, I would say Preordain and Resurrection are good cards, but don't have any synergy with everything else. Breaching Leviathan is a cast trigger, so I might cut it since you have a good amount of top-end anyway.

I whish that Breaching Leviathan would work with polymorph and flicker effects :)

Fun deck. I'd give Stormtide Leviathan a look though. Arguably the best cheap blue fatty from the sea. Also if looking to spend a bit more, you could roll the queen of the seas herself in Thassa, God of the Sea. Other notable blue fattys include Breaching Leviathan, Aethersquall Ancient, Deep-Sea Kraken, Stormsurge Kraken, and Serpent of the Endless Sea. I'd give some of these a look if you are looking for a bit more hitting power on the cheap as all of them are less that a dollar bit hit super hard. Stormsurge Kraken in particular is great for it's card draw ability and hexproof.
