Vanquisher's Banner, Zendikar Resurgent, Vitalize, Tribal Unity, Worldly Tutor, Skyshroud Claim, Explosive Vegetation, Sol Ring, Emerald Medallion, Orochi Hatchery, Door of Destinies, Caged Sun, Throne of the God-Pharaoh, Slate of Ancestry, Planar Bridge, Sunset Pyramid, Akroma's Memorial, Quest for Renewal, Descendants' Path, Asceticism, Mana Reflection, Concordant Crossroads, Vernal Bloom, Helix Pinnacle, Sandwurm Convergence, Song of the Dryads, Sylvan Library, Lurking Predators, Garruk, Caller of Beasts for after your getting a good feel for how you want to play the deck. Any of these cards will drastically help for your first time i'd sugest zendikar resurgent and throne of the god-pharaoh both these cards together will give you a better advantage casually without being a clear threat. Once your past that stage going with sylvan library and sandwurm convergence will give quicker wins and once your at that stage its time to increase ramp for quicker creature drops. So cards like sol ring which comes in ever pre-con is useful and explosive vegatation also helps and is budget friendly.

Cut Peregrine Drake + Deadeye Navigator. I get that it's a good combo, but it doesn't synergize well with the rest of your deck. If you're adamant on a mana loop, Pili-Pala + Grand Architect is better, as Grand Architect Aynergizes with your creatures, the cards are cheaper cmc-wise, and partially easier to tutor for. Fable of Wolf and Owl isn't that great of a card for your deck, although it does trigger Ezuri. Your curve is already quite low, so Zendikar Resurgent is probably a waste of mana and card slots, you simply don't need the ramp. Orochi Hatchery I think you'll find will be quite a big non-bo when you play it, because it is quite intensive on mana, and by that point you probably have enough experience counters to be effective.

Awesome deck! I've had Seton by my Tiny Leader for the longest time and only recently Ive been thinking about making it full EDH deck. You're running a good amount of the cards I alreay have. My wincons are Beastmaster Ascension or Natural Affinity. Natural Affinity is usually the "comes out of nowhere" card and catches many folks off guard. Lure or Seton's Desire (major flavor too!) are two other options for me to win if I have enough Druids out and swing with everything.
I originally tried using the insane amount of mana to put out 'x' spells like some of the hydras or Orochi Hatchery to generate boardstate.
I could have missed it but Craterhoof Behemoth is another great choice for a wincon.
Again, nice build! And I'll keep your list in mind for when I go full EDH with this guy.

Infect is huge with proliferate, as long as nobody gets their feelings hurt about you playing infect... at least a Viral Drake for the extra proliferate ability.
Vigor is the lowest price it's been in years.

This deck has no Red, White, or Blue. Obviously this makes Hapatra a sneaky unpatriotic terrorist, so I will recommend some Snakes for her.
One possibility might be Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro. Her ability to make your Snakes' butts bigger means they can take an extra -1/-1 counter before dying, so you'll get twice the token generation out of Nest of Scarabs/Hapatra. You also have a handful of Shamans in the deck that can benefit from her second ability. One of the bigger downsides of her is that she doesn't apply to your Insects, just your Snakes, so the overall synergy could be better.
Also, just in case you need more Snake generation, there's always Orochi Hatchery. Even though you seem to get Snakes just fine in other ways, it's a token generator that can survive a creature-targeted boardwipe - you'll have something left after the Wrath of God/Blasphemous Act clears the field.
One more sneaky snake suggestion: How about Shisato, Whispering Hunter? You'll generate enough Snakes to keep him from sacrificing himself. Once he's on the field, if opponents don't have a way to remove him immediately, he'll break morale across the board as people fear tapping anything. You already have some stuff for sneaking Hapatra damage through that could apply to him (Shizo, Death's Storehouse for example), and could even add the incredibly mana-intense Rogue's Passage if you felt like cutting a colored mana.
I think I remember commenting/upvoting/viewing/whatevering this deck a year back. It looks even deadlier now! Well done.

So it turns out the creatures you have are pretty much the best you can find unless you're willing to go up to 3 cmc for those looter effects. However I believe you'll find either Lullmage Mentor or Orochi Hatchery to be far more effective than your Sharding Sphinx. I am hesitant to suggest the mentor given your relatively low merfolk count, and you don't run entirely counterspells either, but he fits extremely well into your idea of an oppressive blue aggro deck. Meekstone I would argue fits as well, but I wouldn't know where to cut for that.
Also, what do you think of a more casual aggro tokens variant of Tetsuko? Could it get away with Mightstone effects and probably with an artifacts subtheme?

Oh snap I forgot Orochi Hatchery so had to add that lol. I cut Pia and Kiran. I think I have to keep Snake Basket though, it is decent early game because I can throw it out and let it sit around until ready to activate.
I also cut Chain Reaction although I feel like that's not a good idea. I will sideboard it for now.
Down to 101... the hardest cut!
