Creature — Squid Horror
Whenever you draw a card, put a +1/+1 counter on Chasm Skulker.
When Chasm Skulker dies, create X 1/1 blue Squid creature tokens with islandwalk, where X is the number of +1/+1 counters on Chasm Skulker. (They can't be blocked as long as defending player controls and Island.)

Life's Legacy is decent card draw if you don't mind loosing one of your dudes.
Avatar of the Resolute is a nice body that gets bigger from other creatures.
Managorger Hydra is a bomb if it gets some protection.
Deepglow Skate can double your fields worth of counters, this even works with planeswalkers. kinda spendy money wise though.
for protection: Heroic Intervention

If you need ideas for cuts (you displayed interest in having more counterspells), I would suggest...
Paradox Engine, while pretty good, isn't usually anything crazy or extraordinary. You don't have the engine necessary to play your entire deck with it, all you could really do is play your whole hand, and then all you have is what your walkers can draw for you, for the rest of the game.
Hangarback Walker is only okay, and it can't stop the opponent from going wide unless you find a way to sac it.
Tezzeret the Schemer is pretty subpar. You're either using it to generate gold tokens, or you're killing smallish creatures. I mean yeah it's not bad or anything, it can keep a smaller commander pinned down just fine, but I don't see it being anything outstanding unless you have many more artifacts.
Consider Liliana of the Dark Realms? It could be really good ramp (as many of your larger planeswalkers happen to be black, and it does get shocks) or could also be a total dud. While I suspect the dud option is more likely, there's possibility here, I think.

Devastation Tide is Cyclonic Rift #2
Constant Mists should be mainboard as well.
Chasm Skulker seems out of place in this list.
Teferi's Response if you are feeling funky.

Cards to consider: Rishkar, Peema Renegade - these guys will give you crazy good ramp while also getting peeps swole
Vorel of the Hull Clade probably only want 1 or 2 of this guy. Good but gets unessessary pretty quickly.
Chasm Skulker gets big then makes loads of deadly babies
Thrummingbird make more counters
Cloudfin Raptor great 1 drop that gets big quick. Awesome with thrummingbird

Okay so just going through my list here, I can split it into a couple lists: counter producers, counter enhancers, and counter synergies.
Counter producers give +1/+1 counters to things. Among them are Anafenza, the Foremost, Bloodtracker, Chasm Skulker, Daghatar the Adamant, Dragonscale General, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Hangarback Walker, Heroes' Bane, Managorger Hydra, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, Prime Speaker Zegana, Toothy, Imaginary Friend Citadel Siege, Curse of Predation, Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants, Cathars' Crusade, Echoes of the Kin Tree, and finally, arguably the best of this group, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes.
Counter enhancers increase the counters placed on things: Gilder Bairn, Pir, Imaginative Rascal, Vorel of the Hull Clade, Winding Constrictor, Doubling Season, Hardened Scales, Primal Vigor, and Solidarity of Heroes.
Boy oh boy do I hope that's enough to get ya started. There you go.

To start off: Hardened Scales, Bear Umbra and Ordeal of Nylea. You do allot with just one counter, make use of it! And bear umbra or ordeal of nylea not only means counters but also a free extra Jenara abilities each turn.
Then we have allot of +1/+1 synergy in this deck, but allot of them are single use or difficult to get.
- Ninth Bridge Patrol is by no means terrible, but we don't have token generators let alone sacrifice outlets, so what about Cathars' Crusade? We want to grow, not compensate when we shrink!
- Hunt the Weak, forget the counter and go for Nature's Way. Same concept but cheaper and more diverse.
- Obsessive Skinner is decent, but you could also take Forgotten Ancient
- Ajani, Caller of the Pride would be a direct upgrade to Ajani, Valiant Protector in my opinion. And while you have some flavor for the valiant protector that we will now lose, that's ok;
Because what about Collective Effort for multiple purposes. Orzhov Advokist to play it politically. Hadana's Climb, Dragonscale General, Master Biomancer, Tuskguard CaptainVerdurous Gearhulk, Increasing Savagery and ow Kalonian Hydra!
