Cheap artefacts that reduce the cost of the merfolk to next to nothing, plus casting a few cheap merfolk could tap down all blockers, and buff your merfolk enough to do some serious damage.
Also, Murkfiend Liege is great once Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca is up and running, letting you untap creatures every upkeep and being able to tap them down during endsteps again for card draw/ +1/+1 counters.

Cool shell so far, but I definitely think it needs more mana ramp. Mayeb 4 more sources of your choice of artifact and land ramp, all probably around the 2-3 CMC slot. Since your deck is light on green I'd go the artifacts that tap for colors like Fellwar Stone , Wayfarer's Bauble , Commander's Sphere , Armillary Sphere , Coalition Relic .
Overall I'd look to knock the curve of the deck down a bit. I find decks start to really hum when they are around 3.5 average CMC. With that said, some of the higher cost plane walkers that aren't doing as much work for you might be Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge , Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage , and Kaya, Bane of the Dead ,
And you can find better board wipes than Decree of Pain . is a tall order.
This deck definitely has all the win cons it needs, just make sure you have the card draw and smooth curve to ensure you get to them consistently.
Looks like fun deck, best of luck!

I've been having a lot of fun with him! He's really powerful once he gets going. Mishra's Self-Replicator and Sai, Master Thopterist make him amazing. I think Hostage Taker is a great idea! I could exile an artifact or creature for two mana (as long as Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge is out). I think I'll also put in Tetzimoc, Primal Death for more creature based removal.
That's a good point about One with the Machine . So far, I've cast it for 5 with Gilded Lotus and 4 with Traxos, Scourge of Kroog , and the third time I kept it in my hand because I didn't have a good artifact on the field. I might swap it out for Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage .
I'm still experimenting with it. Let me know if you decide to build it! I think focusing on creatures, artifacts, and planeswalkers is the way to go because of Tezzeret's affinity.

Nightveil Specter ? Really strong flyer and it's a damage dealer as well as an exiler. If your opponent happens to play to similar colours, you can also steal their cards.
I would also put in another Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver in place of Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage . Jace doesn't do as much as Ashiok, and considering Ashiok is often targeted fast, it's nice to have a backup.

This is pretty cool looking! My first suggestion would be to replace your commander, Linessa, Zephyr Mage , with Alexi, Zephyr Mage . She is far more efficient being able to bounce one creature for and one additional creature for every additional you pay. You do have to discard cards when you use her but this deck should keep your hand pretty well stocked.
I usually only run 35 lands myself so you could drop 3 snow lands to get closer to a legal deck size. Some other potential removals for consideration:

Hello, my friends. I got same thoughts about mill with Persistent Petitioners with Rally to Battle . But for more budget and stabile version, ill suggest you to get rid of white color and add some(2-3) Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage instead. Also u can add some Mass Manipulation to main deck.

I would say your weakest cards currently are:
Master of the Waves - For being a 4 drop, it is one of the weaker ones that doesn't promote your game plan or give synergy.
River Sneak - Beasically a vanilla creature, would replace with a one drop cmc creature.
Sage of Fables - Just a bit too slow, aand not much synergy aside from the +1/+1 Counter card draw which is a tad too slow.
Shapers of Nature - Same as Fables, but even slower. I would cut this card first over Sage of Fables.
Vorel of the Hull Clade - Doesn't fit with synergy, and costs every time. If it targeted every single one of your creatures than yes, but since it's a single target...no.
Another suggestion will also be for the type of ramp spells. Going on curve I rather use the two drops like Nature's Lore, Farseek, Rampant Growth. But I do like Kodama's Reach and Cultivate. Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage is also a bit too slow, if you have the chance or budget I would recommend Rhystic Study.
Hope that helps!
