Really nice build! Chakram Retriever could be cool here. Not a fish but is made of water, would that count?

Sen Triplets ' ability allows you to play the cards from your opponent's hand. The cards though are not in your hand and thus can not be chosen for effects such as discarding, or to be the target of an ability which allows you to play something from your hand. If for example you were to have an ability such as Chakram Retriever 's which triggers off your casting spells, it does not care about the source of the card being your opponent's hand, because you are the one casting it.

Oh, I know very well how the pod line works. I've spent countless hours and tore out a lot of hair trying to figure out the most efficient way of assembling a chain to Hulk myself and it just hasn't worked in my favor at all because there isn't a great ETB untapper at 5 CMC. Tidewater Minion is fine. Chakram Retriever and Disciple of the Ring feel a little less conditional to me since they don't require a haste enabler, but they still aren't great.

With the Combo of playing 0 mana artifacts and Retraction Helix / Banishing Knack to get infinity Prowess through Chakram Retriever s untap ability you could also include Tandem Lookout to Soulbond it with either Reckless Fireweaver , Nettle Drone , Firebrand Archer or Chakram Slinger .
That way you'd get a good draw engine that can draw you into your combo. But the Deck seams good as it is. Just a tought that might be worth a try.

Great! I'm glad I'm not far from the mark.
So, some somewhat relevant cards that are just suggestions with reasoning. I'd like your thoughts on.
Bounty Agent vigilant (ref. Stasis lock); also it shoots a deck's general.
Incubation Druid a bad version of bloom tender? Goes extremely well with the synergy of the deck already.
Lavinia, Azorius Renegade - on your turns 1-5 she's great. Probably a high priority tutor target early game, likely somewhat dead late game.
Damping Sphere a great anti-storm piece, comes down just as early as they win, so a solid option
Prime Speaker Vannifar an obligatory mention. Some people like bad birthing pod. At the end of the day - it's exactly that. So with this knowledge what you will
Smothering Tithe - a 2 card hard lock with stasis that is just dumb.
Wilderness Reclamation - same as smothering tithe. I feel like it's less good - but is probably better.
Vizier of the Menagerie - bad style of draw & mana fixing.
Tithe Taker - a bad grand abolisher... but another copy, I guess.
Chakram Retriever is the goodest boi, especially for abusing bloom tender
Conclave Tribunal is a 0 mana o-ring. Neat.
Dawn of Hope - a nice win-more card. Cute.
Deputy of Detention - a spicy creature version of det-sphere. Meh.
Guardian Project more 4 mana draw engines. Ok...
Spellseeker is a nifty wizard. Fetches your real tutors / mana drain in a pinch.
That's the best summary I could give for the recent set's new cedh options & possibilities for this build.

I see you have Freed from the Real . I bet you'd like to hear that there's another similar enchantment: Pemmin's Aura . A card like Junktroller , Reito Lantern , and Epitaph Golem can restart the cycle (especially if you run out of 5/6/7 mana creatures to search for). You seem to lack creatures at converted mana cost 7, so I suggest Avenger of Zendikar and Protean Hulk .
I HIGHLY suggest Illusionist's Bracers . It is gold in your deck.
If you like comboing, then there's options. Bounding Krasis is also a good enabler, followed by Breaching Hippocamp into Chakram Retriever . You'll want to keep him. Great Oak Guardian also does the trick. Kiora's Follower and Fatestitcher also pull more out of her ability. Since you're sacrificing creatures.
