Deck Update: 12/6/2019:

Took out Glasses of Urza for Illusionist's Bracers . Glasses are nice but the bracers allow me to use more abilities that interact with cards in the deck. King Crab for Talrand, Sky Summoner . King Crab is too expensive and the ability is nice but Talrand is just more useful in every stage of the game. The land swap for Merchant Scroll , Painter's Servant and Grindstone . 31 lands should be more than enough to power this deck. I added Merchant Scroll in order to allow me to fetch more utility or answers for things. Painter's Servant fits the theme behind the deck although Grindstone was really just put in for the cheeky win condition. Look at it as your big red button...

Looks about as fun as having real crabs! =P

How about Skittering Crustacean? There is also Thassa's Emissary.

King Crab may not fit the deck but that flavor text has to be one of my favorites of all time.

Not noble legal - Your rarities are all over the place.

Assuming you want Trait Doctoring as your noble: Whispersilk Cloak, Hydroblast and Pyroblast were all printed at common, so go nuts. You could even run King Crab for your uncommons.

Ok, so Shifting Sky is a must in this deck. I'm also a huge fan of Absolute Grace and Absolute Law. High Seas is another one you should consider, as is Stormtide Leviathan.

The main problem with color hack decks, I've found, is that you have a lot of cards that do nothing unless other conditions are met. To alleviate that I think you're going to need some more card draw. Rhystic Study and Mystic Remora are classics, and I personally like Compulsion, as well: it lets you ditch your color spells if you don't need them.

Cards I think are not worth running are Trait Doctoring (worst color change card ever), Govern the Guildless, King Crab (too expensive), and Akroma, Angel of Wrath (same).

I'd also like to know what your planned win conditions are. It seems to be commander damage with Dromar? Do have any other alternate win conditions in mind?
