Your average cmc is a little high in this deck. I see that you want to play a more midrange centered deck, so why don't you cut the Lyra Dawnbringer for a copy of Geist of Saint Traft? You might want to take out a couple creatures from the deck that have a high cmc for lower cmc counterspells if you want to consistently counter more cards. Currently, your only 2 mana counterspell is Mana Leak, which you should replace your Dissolves to make it go up to 4. Also, instead of a Dragonlord Ojutai, what about Elspeth, Sun's Champion she's a much better 5 mana win condition for this deck. My last 2 suggestions are to remove about 2-4 creatures from the mainboard since it's hard to really play the midrange part without enough pushes or shoves but they can be whatever you want to remove. Finally, cut the 25th land because the changes to the cmcs should be enough to take it down a notch.
Overall, great deck! Also make sure to pick up a lot of Hallowed Fountains after the release of the new Ravnica set since shock lands are going to plummet in price.

Aether Hub and Tendo Ice Bridge both seem bad in a control deck, as they only make 1 colored mana each, and you can't really afford to have colourless sources in a deck with Cruel Ultimatum, you just won't be able to cast your spells.
Disallow, Dissolve and Electrickery all seem mediocre in modern, the counters have more efficient/better options like more Mana Leak/Remand/Logic Knot and more Cryptic Commands, and Electrickery is just a bad board wipe, something like Damnation or Languish is likely to be much better.
23 lands is almost always too few for a control deck, you tend to want at least 25/26 to make sure you hit your land drops consistently
A lot of cards in the sideboard have better alternatives too, like Consume the Meek, Electrickery and Yahenni's Expertise could all become Damnation or Languish which kill the more common creatures in modern, the Duress and Harsh Scrutiny could become Collective Brutality as additional discard which is more flexible, and better in more matchups and Tragic Slip should probably just be more Fatal Pushes.

Hi Paulyableful! I like the deck list you have going on here. The whole sea creatures theme is pretty solid and is a good flavor win if you ask me. I also have a Thassa, God of the Sea Commander deck that has a sea creature theme. If I were to make a suggestion, I would want to take out some underperforming creatures in place for some ramp, removal, and counterspells. I'd throw in a Sol Ring, Sapphire Medallion, Cyclonic Rift, Curse of the Swine, and a Dissolve. If you'd want to take a look at my list, you're more than welcome to do so anytime!

lagotripha - More card draw was one thing I was considering, but idk if I should just add some more Divination or add new cards. I was maybe thinking Blue Sun's Zenith. Tidings is also obviously really good value for its cost, but 5 mana sorcery doesn't look appealing to me. I like Opportunity better. As for Think Twice, I really don't know how I feel about this card. It seems odd to me, and when I look at it, I don't think it's amazing. But I do know that people run it, and I can see why. The split mana cost can be very good, but then I look at it again, and see a 5 mana draw 2. But then I see synergy with Mana Leak and Dissolve, as they share mana costs. I've never tried the card before, but I'll definitely try it out now.

I've run a Biovisionary wincon deck in EDH and modern deck and let me tell you, you are going to need some counter spells. It's the only thing that will reliably protect you from boardwipe, removal, and a lot of other hateful things. Get Mystic Snake, Counterspell, Dissolve maybe Plasm Capture (extra mana!). Also, Prophet of Kruphix is banned (RIP, my beloved.) You can replace it with Seedborn Muse and Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, add Alchemist's Refuge, and Leyline of Anticipation. You're also going to want more mana ramp and card draw. I suggest fetch land creatures like Sakura-Tribe Elder and others like it because you want Momir triggers as often as possible. A late game rampant growth or cultivate is sad when you are searching for answers. Also, relying on non-land permanents like mana dorks and artifacts can leave you high and dry if the board gets wiped, so avoid them. If you must though, consider defender ramp like Axebane Guardian and Overgrown Battlement. They can be explosive with all the copy you have.
Kruphix, God of Horizons is awesome in a deck like this, coupled with Seedborn Muse and Rite of Replication? You'll have everything you need to win and have mana left for a counterspell. Consider tutors like Mystical Tutor to get what you need. But I find massive card draw will help you get there. Reliquary Tower and Library of Leng couldn't hurt either.
Strategically, my basic advice is that the clone approach is slow and will antagonize your opponents as the countdown begins. They'll wipe or remove as soon as they can and beat your face in the process. Making it all happen at once is your best bet. Counters, card draw, mana ramp, flash and untap will help win the game with Biovisionary consistently.
Sorry for the mouthful! Nice to see someone running a similar deck to me. GOOD LUCK!

This deck looks mighty fine, but I have a few suggestions you might wish to consider. Tempt with Reflections and Tempt with Vengeance are Tempt with Immortality's sister cards and are equally as useful. Fated Infatuation and Fated Conflagration are also worthy considerations. Rite of the Raging Storm is weird but fun. I am also a little concerned about the lack of counter spells in this deck. You play some good cards - you will probably be eating a few counters and/or boardwipes, so you need a back up. Rewind, Dissolve, Unwind, Dismiss and Arcane Denial are good considerations.

The deck as a whole looks fine, if not a little slow
