So a lot of what you’re doing is solid, there is a pretty great synergy level here, and no real problematic cards though there are some cards that are less than optimal.

For example Ichor Wellspring spring and the Guild Globe . Being in blue means there are just better options for drawing. Card draw can come from Cold-Eyed Selkie , Tatyova, Benthic Druid , Seafloor Oracle or Fallowsage who has synergies with your commander, also Prime Speaker Zegana who is just super good with +1+1. There are also spells which are just super good in blue like Ponder

You also have some room to improve your synergies with +1+1 and proliferate. Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter for example while not a merfolk is just great for the deck.

And there are some amazing lords (creatures that give all of a creature type +1/+1) in the merfolk tribe Like Merrow Reejerey and Merfolk Sovereign which are the inexpensive ones that you aren't already using.

A card that goes super well with your commander is Merrow Commerce .

Tutoring (searching for a specific merfolk from your deck) can increase consistency substantially so Seahunter despite the price tag is incredible, cheaper versions include Tidal Courier and Merrow Harbinger

Ramp is important and there are a couple cards that are used in most green decks, like Cultivate and Kodama's Reach . There is also a handful of cards that speed you up as well like Stonybrook Banneret , and I might consider some artifact acceleration like Simic Signet or Commander's Sphere

Shaper of Nature is a solid mana dump (a card that lets you spend excess mana at will

I'd use Vanquisher's Banner over Glass of the Guildpact , because you’re only really running a handful of multi-colored creatures. But it is a bit more expensive

Beast Within is super strong removal cause it’s in green and blue which don’t have great answers for problem creatures

On the wish list is Hardened Scales cause its so good with +1 +1 and proliferate

As for lands there are a couple of lands that help you and are reasonably priced Simic Growth Chamber , Evolving Wilds , Terramorphic Expanse , Lumbering Falls , and Oran-Rief, the Vastwood .

Thanks for the help and additional info Senomar. I will definitely look into Fallowsage as that has real synergy.

The other two I've considered, but may not be enough for the deck. At three mana, I am casting Kumena or another spell that drastically alters the board ( Deeproot Waters , Intruder Alarm , Arcane Adaptation , ect.). Silvergill Adept just seems a little underwhelming for EDH. I will definitely take them into consideration based on the level you play, though. Thank you again for your insight.

The real combo is Earthcraft with Intruder Alarm otherwise if you want to play your whole deck with Intruder Alarm + Cryptolith Rite you'll need something like Concordant Crossroads . In both case, if you draw 3 lands in a row it can breaks the combo :)

I would like to see this combo with Master of Waves x)

Most of te time if you want to go on combo you already have cards in hand and/or have draw tools and/or mana on the table the whole thing with low curve creatures.

I just recheck you list and I notice you haven't Fallowsage (huge tool with half of your deck list) nor Silvergill Adept or Jungleborn Pioneer (more anecdotic but it's strong fuel for Kumena).

Kumena is a cool guy I used to run him as my commander before, some suggestions I would add in Thrasios, Triton Hero, Seahunter, Fallowsage, Lord of Atlantis, Lullmage Mentor, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, and Kindred Discovery.

Hope that helps!

Fallowsage is one of the weaker draw engines. It's got nice synergy with Cryptolith Rite and Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca, but it's pretty bad without lords, evasion, or sneaky ways to tap it. It's very possible that Clever Impersonator is just better, whether behind or ahead on board.

PaulusdeBoself: glad you recommended Aquitect's Will to him. i honestly think its better than Spreading Seas and i really don't understand why Seas are played over Will to begin with.

i strongly disagree with the recommendation of Fallowsage however. its a 2/2 for 4 mana. thats a pretty bad start. and Merrow Reejerey is best used to tap down an opponents blockers, not your own blockers. Opt or Serum Visions would be better if you really need the card draw.

You could play Aquitect's Will instead of Spreading Seas. It can't be dealt with by Disenchant and such and it's a Merfolk spell!

Fallowsage works very well with Merrow Reejerey when you play as much merfolk spells as you do. It keeps you going with extra cards. I would choose it over Cosi's Trickster.

I have some suggestions since I am building Kumena as well.I know they add a bit of price but more fetches would be better than taplands. Also Cavern of Souls is pricey but extremely good.Some Merfolk I would recommend, Merfolk Branchwalker,Jadelight Ranger, Silvergill Adept,True-Name Nemesis,Cursecatcher,Fallowsage,Wanderwine Prophets (although its a bit slow it can do a lot),Some Tribal Cards too, Urza's Incubator,Coat of Arms,(i like this over Beastmaster Ascension unless ur playgroup is mostly tribal then ig not),Vanquisher's Banner, Door of DestiniesAlso Dramatic Reversal and Isochron Scepter seems like a good combo for the deck if u slot in the mana rocks and dorks. Quest for Renewal seems really good too. Also you could always add more staple cards, namely Sylvan Library, can trips (Ponder,Preordain,Brainstorm), Rhystic Study.(and ofc if you can afford it you should put it the good ol' Gaea's Cradle, and Tropical Island, but if you don't want to buy them thats normal)
