A few cards I'd expect to see in Nekusar that I don't see here: Prosperity , Howling Mine , Magus of the Jar , Master of the Feast , The Haunt of Hightower , Expansion / Explosion , Seizan, Perverter of Truth . Also maybe things to consider: The Locust God , Blue Sun's Zenith , Jace Beleren , Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted , Manabarbs , Painful Quandary

Love the idea :) Black discard and discard pain, red wheel, blue draw. Amazing synergies.
All of the Niv-Mizzets sound up your alley as well but all very high CMC.
Maybe Consecrated Sphinx as an engine to keep your card advantage higher than your opponents? Although you will be wheeling anyway, so probably not worth, not sure.

At this point i am wondering if i should focus on card draw mechanics to find what i want or cards like Mind Grind or Mind Funeral with having access to Megrim and some of the magus - Magus of the Jar & Magus of the Wheel

Hey there not sure if this will help the lack of gas problem, but you can try it out.
Narset, Parter of Veils only allows opponents to draw one card and then you can play cards like Windfall , Day's Undoing , Magus of the Jar , and Teferi's Puzzle Box to reload your hand but then have your opponents discard their hands and only draw one—-or in the case of Prosperity or Minds Aglow there is no discarding but then you can reload your hand while opponents only get to draw one card. If you do decide to go this route I would suggest one or two tutors for Narset herself and for the instant and sorceries that Wheel and deal. Noble Benefactor is a janky—huggy option for a tutor, and then there are cards like Muddle the Mixture (can get any spell of 3cmc or Mystical Tutor . I cant recall any tutors for green and blue that can get any planeswalkers.
Anyway, hope my suggestion helps. It’s slightly off theme from the sea monsters but it could be a good sub-theme for you to try. Plus the wheel and deals can get ripped straight from Chaos Wand as well.

Waste Not with the Sire is awesome. Better keep people drawing cards tho. Dark Deal , Burning Inquiry and Collective Defiance are in your colors. Blue offers Jace's Archivist , Windfall and Magus of the Jar .

Dark Ritual isn't Modern legal. If you're playing casual than don't worry about it. Be sure to add your deck to a Casual Hub for more exposure.

This is a fantastic deck for its cost. Really budget and I like that. There are a lot of upgrades you can make if you have the cash to spare.
Wheels: Teferi's Puzzle Box, Memory Jar (surprisingly cheap), Wheel of Fate, Wheel of Fortune (the most expensive option), Reforge the Soul, Winds of Change, Memory, Magus of the Jar, and Magus of the Wheel. You definitely shouldn't have all of these, just a few. Wheels are great regardless, but with your commander out, then you get a load of little bugs to go with the card advantage.
Bug buffs: Mindwrack Liege to make all the bugs bigger threats. Altar of the Brood is a good alternate wincon. Loyal Drake guarantees a locust each turn, in case everything goes wrong. Coat of Arms makes all the bugs massive.
Elixir of Immortality makes it harder to deck yourself.
Skullclamp to turn you bugs into more cards, and thus more bugs.
Gamble to grab combo pieces.
A Counterspell and Rewind are good spells to have. I noticed your initial decklist is a little light on removal, so a Blasphemous Act and a Vandalblast will be fine, along with any others you can think of.
This is a fantastic deck, these are just some upgrades I would suggest. I would also make your mana base a little better with some more dual lands and mana rocks, but usually those are the most expensive cards to grab.
