Creature — Oyster
You may choose not to untap Giant Oyster during your untap step.
Tap: As long as Giant Oyster remains tapped, target tapped creature doesn't untap during its controller's untap step, and at the beginning of each of your draw steps, put a -1/-1 counter on that creature. When Giant Oyster leaves the battlefield or becomes untapped, remove all -1/-1 counters from the creature.

Servent of Unesh
Creature - Bird Wizard
, , Exert Servent of Unesh: Tap target creature. That creature doesn't untap during its controller's untap step for as long as Servant of Unesh remains tapped.
Tapping down a creature with a cheap flyer for every two turns seems versatile and good enough to see standard play, at the very least.
I think it'd likely see Pioneer play, but maybe not Modern, but I like how MH1 included color-shifted mechanics, and thus would place it there.
I'd like to see a legendary card which would be cool in standard/pioneer/modern,
but not in commander, like Tetzimoc, Primal Death or Dragonlord Kolaghan. Commanders like Child of Alara and Elenda, the Dusk Rose aren't what I mean. The fact that you can't directly send a card to the command zone and get its valuable death trigger is not what I mean. I mean cards that fundamentally are difficult to work with the rules of how commander works.
Personally, my Elenda deck just exiles her from the graveyard to the command zone for value or reanimates her. It's not difficult to handle the dies vs. command zone thing.

This build looks pretty complete for a sea monsters theme. If you are concerned about additional ways to cheat out the big Krakens and all, then I would suggest looking at Quicksilver Amulet and Elvish Piper. Otherwise I think you are running enough ramp to cast the sea monsters fairly early.
A few other cards you might consider are Wonder (for Stormtide Leviathan), Thryx, the Sudden Storm, Thada Adel, Acquisitor to steal opponents mana rocks, Elder Deep-Fiend as a safety net, Propaganda to blunt early aggression, Giant Oyster because it is on theme and hilarious, and Rush of Knowledge
+1 from me!

Great humour, man! I read the name in the voice of Jar Jar Binks; make of that what you will.
