It's nice to see a Jace Oathbreaker that's not centered around exiling your library. +1

No matter the combo, if you have Kumena on board and at least 2 others merfolks you can be sure you'll draw 5 cards before your next turn, bump whole boards with Surgespanner or steal a lot of nasty stuff with Empress Galina haha. This card is one of the most powerfull of the deck. use it carrefully and go attack phase before playing creatures otherwise you'll get trap
Have a nice day

So first thing that came to my mind on seeing this list is that you already have an overwhelming amount of so you may want to switch to either Memnarch or Empress Galina . Both of which still do the mind control theme.
If you are attached to this commander you will want about 36 lands. This page can be a little overwhelming to look over but is rather useful.
You can follow that to other budget versions of her. The page just summarizes commonly used cards.
Something you have completely missed out on is untap effects with your commander. When she is untapped the controlled creature is killed. With enough untap effects out you can machine gun down all of your opponent's creatures.

It’s a little out there, but what about Titania's Song? I am not too knowledgeable about Wiccan culture, but transmuting artifacts into creatures has a folksy quality to it — something Gogol might write about.
I love the use of Traveler’s Cloak — it’s long been a pet card of mine.

If you are still looking for cards to remove.. I would scrap Pearl Medallion, dont know if you are running enough white to justify it.
I might also remove Coastal Piracy.
As far as great Merfolk go, I really love Empress Galina, she is $ Expensive, but its very enjoyable taking other players commanders.

The goal of these types of cards is that at least for effects like Nevermore, Null Chamber, Gideon's Intervention, Pithing Needle, Darksteel Mutation, Imprisoned in the Moon, Cursed Totem, Sorcerous Spyglass, Song of the Dryads, etc. is that they are 'commander removal', a way of getting around the command-zoning techniques that are abused by commanders that get removed often, yet can just be cast for more.
Mairsil can also use cards like Empress Galina or other steal effects as you can't command zone those either. Empress will also have an activated ability Mairsil can get, allowing you to make a sort of lock on all commanders.

faver18: I've tested it and honestly not a big fan of it because it requires you to have a legendary creature out and it's 6 mana. I would run Vedalken Shackles/Empress Galina/Memnarch over it. Glad you like the deck!
