Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage Discussion

If you are looking to build Grixis (Bolas' colors) I'd recommend the following three Planeswalker decks that you can mash up into one:
Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage 's deck from Ixalan. This gives you strong card advantage, a means to untap creatures, and that ultimate can be game-breaking if you rip your opponent's key pieces from the board.
Tezzeret, Master of Metal 's deck from Aether Revolt. You can run artifact creatures and use Tezzeret to filter down into more, while using Jace to untap them all. If you are able to get your hands on even a single copy of Steel Overseer , Jace allows multiple uses out of it. Tezzeret's ultimate is an even stronger version of Jace's, and the 3 is really powerful if you have a strong enough artifact base.
Ral, Caller of Storms ' deck from Guilds of Ravnica. What he allows is even more draw, more damage, and another form of boardwipe.
Between these three, you have a lot of draw / filter effects, life-draining effects either in the way of Tezzeret's life loss or Ral's damage, untap abilities with Jace, and all three of these Planeswalkers dramatically impact your opponent's boardstate with their final abilities.
When coupled with Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God , you now have even MORE draw, MORE control, and the ultimate basically wins you the game if you control of destroy their boardstate.
For example, you can use Jace to gain control of any Legendary permanent, Tezzeret to control their entire creature base, or Ral to merely kill everything in sight.

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.
