I'm truly glad that so many people are finding this thread and contributing, and I really don't want to discourage anybody from joining, but please no Legendary Homunculi. At least for a week. Of course, anybody who sees only the first page won't see this comment until it's too late...

Pact of Preparation
Attacking or blocking creatures you control gain +3/+3 until end of turn. attacking or blocking creatures your opponents control get -3/-3 until end of turn.
At the beginning of your next upkeep, pay . If you don't, you lose the game.

This deck is split two ways that don't really compliment each other. You have the value-oriented Blue-Green goodstuff, a great place for Tishana, and also have some merfolk tribal cards tossed in, despite only having 20 merfolk, you have 15 cards that want you to have merfolk. I'd suggest switching your commander for Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca and add more merfolk instead of the equipment and non-merfolk creatures, and drop the +1/+1 counter theme with cards like Bioshift, or move into the Blue-Green Value list, drop the merfolk tribal, and all of the less-than-great merfolk, and run more mana dorks like Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Birds of Paradise, Arbor Elf, Boreal Druid, Elvish Mystic, etc. to quickly cast Tishana and refill your hand.
You could also just go +1/+1 counters, but that doesn't synergize heavily with your list, considering only two cards of your even can have +1/+1 counters, your commander and Prime Speaker Zegana.
Cards to drop no matter what really would be Bioshift, Mu Yanling, Quietus Spike, Levitation, Pause for Reflection, Cancel, Exclude, Sage of Ancient Lore Flip, Might of the Masses, Treasure Hunt, and Crashing Tide
For more countermagic, Arcane Denial is really good, as is Swan Song, more removal would be like Beast Within, Song of the Dryads, and Imprisoned in the Moon the last two of which can turn off commanders, because you are just enchanting them, but they aren't leaving anywhere. They also lose all other types and abilities as they turn into lands, so they are effectively useless.

Could we please have Mu Yanling updated to properly reflect her Commander Legality. I keep getting thrown off by my Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow deck getting flagged for an illegal card when she's very much legal.

Mu Yanling appears to have some nice synergy and support for the deck. Thoughts on this?

I love the Sphinxy/time synergy. It does look like fun to play for any one who is not the opponent! The threat of constantly taking new turns? Yikes. But I worry that it may be too much as I see little card draw and counter spells. If you think that no one will attempt to be rid of your spells in this deck, you are mistaken. I suggest maybe Mu Yanling for this deck. Your Sphinxes also synergise with the mind, so why not add a Flow of Ideas to this deck? I assure you it is quite good card draw. Dictate of Kruphix gives card draw, as does Divination. Brainstorm and Ponder synergise with the mind too. Dissolve, Rewind, and Unwind are worthy considerations for counterspells. Favorable Winds give your fliers extra power and toughness. Kindred Discovery works with your Sphinxes. Door of Destinies does the same.
Overall, I give this deck a 7.9/10. I hope these suggestions have been of some use to you.

Hmm LVL_666, I never thought about storage lands, that's a really good idea. I won't cut down to 33 lands though because A) through play testing I've found 36 is a nice consistent number. And B) I seriously have the worst luck with lands.
They may try to make the Planeswalkers in Planeswalker decks "unplayable" but that doesn't always work, just look at the Ajani from M19, the Planeswalker deck Planeswalker is definitely better. Tezzeret, Master of Metal is a Planeswalker deck card, and his ult is amazing (the plus is nice to since it can help me find Rings and The Chain Veil). I personally like Mu Yanling, she can make Atraxa unblockable if it has to come with that and can draw me cards (if I'm desperate). Also, that ult is like my dream ult "Tap all creatures your opponents control and take an extra turn". That tap ability is nice, but it's the extra turn I'm after (like Teferi, Timebender, another Planeswalker deck Planeswalker in this deck).
Huh, thought As Foretold was in here, I must have cut it for some stupid reason. I've been thinking about Aminatou, the Fateshifter for blink, but one Ive been thinking about putting in is Estrid, the Masked. Her minus is nice since it allows my to protect my Planeswalkers to a certain degree.
Thanks for the suggestions! Feel free to leave more if you feel like it.

So, after looking at your landbase I have some suggestions. Since you're running Atraxa you have the unique opportunity to take advantage of Proliferate. Some lands that may be of use to you are the TimeSpiral Storage Lands, aka: Calciform Pools, Dreadship Reef, and Saltcrusted Steppe. Then to support your proliferation madness you could use Mage-Ring Network, Gemstone Mine (because you could just keep proliferating the counters on it, making it punishment free), and Mirrodin's Core. To make room, i'd try and cut your manabase down to around 33 lands. I would probably cut some of the Check Lands, but I would definitely cut Krosan Verge for one of the previously mentioned mentioned cards I suggested.
Also, for the love of everything sane and holy why on earth are you running Mu Yanling?! Wizards even admitted that the cards from that set were made to be intentionally unplayable. The proof is from: Creating Global Series:JIANG YANGGU & MU YANLING:
Now, to properly set expectations: these are essentially special Planeswalker Decks for a Chinese audience. Despite the fact that they are packaged together, I would suggest thinking of them as Planeswalker Decks, not Duel Decks.
Planeswalker decks were purposefully watered down, a product that had little to offer more experienced players. Sorry for the rant, but all i'm trying to say is that you have much better options than Mu Yanling. Try Aminatou, the Fateshifter...just anything but that.
On an additional note, you could also run As Foretold because Atraxa can get that count up very high very quickly. 2 counters every turn (your upkeep + endstep) means you could pop out a free planeswalker on your turn, tap out, and still be able to play responses during other players turns (it says "Once EACH turn", not "Once on your turn") so that would be something to take advantage of.
I think i'll cut myself off here...I have a few more thoughts regarding your deck but i'll playtest it a bit more before I comment again. Good stuff so far though!
