@darth87 I usually don't like to include more tutors (even if it's probably just getting Wonder). This card would fit better in a Muldrotha deck, where you can cast the card you get with Gravebreaker Lamia without wasting resources like a Victimize like this deck most likely would, and you can save more mana with the more spells you cast (instead of just saving when you cast Kederekt Leviathan/Corpse Connoisseur/Vizier of Many Faces like this deck would).

Thanks for the suggestions!
I had previously bought all the creatures you'd mentioned when assembling this deck on MTGO.
The Simic Sky Swallower just feels weirdly vanilla to me. It's obviously not with three separate abilities but given the sweep or unblockable nature provided by the others, Shroud and Flample just don't excite me the same way.
As for the Kederekt Leviathan I considered and dismissed it because, for that mana, I'd much prefer a one sided board sweep. Sure, we'd have a 5/5 when all was said and done but things like Teferi's Protection would mess us up badly on that play. I just don't like the risk it exposes us to.
The Kiora planeswalker is valid. Kiora Bests the Sea God would be magical One on One but somewhat less so in Multiplayer and the Reef Worm just feels like too many hoops to get to my Kraken. I'm very impatient and lazy. I want my big stuff NOW.
I really appreciate the input though! I'll have to test with the Serpent of Yawning Depths soon.

DandiCze Thank you for giving feedback for the deck. Floodgate , Scourge of Fleets , Willbreaker , and Chamber of Manipulation seem like excellent additions to the deck that I had not thought of. Verity Circle and also seems like a good add, but I think that I would need to playtest more with them to see if they could find a permanent place in the deck. The Kederekt Leviathan has a good etb ability, but I think that it impacts us too much for it to be good. Especially when a decent chunk of our mana comes from mana rocks I think that other players would be able to rebuild their boards a lot faster, leaving us in the dust.

Hey man! I really like this list! I have compared it to my own mimeoplasm deck and there's a lot of cards which would be a great include in my deck. Have you considered the following cards aswell? I included these in my own deck:
Razaketh, the Foulblooded , with Entomb this will be a one card combo. After you have Razaketh, the Foulblooded into play you only need one other creature in play (like a mana dork), and you need atleast available to you, also you need to have atleast 3 lands in play. First you start of by sacrificing the creature with Razaketh, the Foulblooded to find Life / Death and use to cast Life, then you can sacrifice your other lands to find Dark Ritual , Buried Alive and Animate Dead or some other reanimation spell (If you have a 4th land available then it's recommended to find a Pact of Negation first. Then you first cast Dark Ritual so you have in your mana pool, then you can use Buried Alive and Animate Dead to do the Necrotic Ooze combo.
For card draw I really like to run these cards: Search for Azcanta Flip this is a really nice early play. Dig Through Time you can often cast this for just , but it gives your deck a higher CMC which is great for the combo. Deep Analysis , you can cast this from your graveyard really cheap which can be really important in a deck like this. Underrealm Lich , don't underestimate this guy, every draw 1 turns basically into draw 3, I would definitely play this over Liliana Vess . Then I really like Fact or Fiction It's great since it's a instant speed and can often find you the tutor you need.
For ramp I suggest Arcane Signet , just a great card you don't need to leave lands open to use this signet. Sakura-Tribe Elder this card is better in this deck than any other deck since you use it as food for the secondary target of The Mimeoplasm when you want to copy your Necrotic Ooze to combo off, for example.
then some other suggestions; Assassin's Trophy , really versatile removal. Memory's Journey this will protect your combo pieces when needed. Noxious Revival will also protect your combo pieces, but can also bring back important spells at instant speed for (almost) free. Krosan Tusker , you want to cycle this creature to effectively draw 2 cards and also have a body in the graveyard or have a nice high CMC card in your deck. This card will do really well if you decide to play Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon in your deck as lategame 1v1 finisher.
And lastly some really good synergy which will almost always work: Reanimation Kederekt Leviathan with Necromancy on instant speed. This is a full 3 mana boardwipe you can use as often as you have the mana for it. because Necromancy will also be bounced when Kederekt Leviathan enters the battlefield Kederekt Leviathan will die. So you can use this interaction all over again. This is great play at the end step, before the turn you go off or to just buy you some time.
I hope you find atleast some of these suggestions useful!
