MagicalHacker I've heard similar things. Ironically, I would never start a new player out with 3 or more colors, especially if they're brewing their own decks. The land base is more frustrating, and often the strategies are more complicated, which stinks if you're still trying to learn the rules. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight was my first commander, and she was linear enough that I could actually start to understand the intricacies of EDH at my own pace. And there are plenty of mono-colored commanders that offer the same learning experience without suffering any loss of effectiveness. Patron of the Moon, Toshiro Umezawa, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, Rakka Mar, and so forth. And anybody who argues that mono color generals are less powerful has clearly never tried to take on Talrand, Sky Summoner 1 v 1.
I'm with you all the way. "Fun" for me is defined as a game where both decks did their best, to the extent that it could've gone either way. Heavy Stax and board locks defeat that goal for me. I'd rather lose 100 games straight if everybody at the table is participating and having a good time and is taking the game of MTG lightly as it was intended to be taken.

I think I see what you mean with running the mana accelerators, but I do know from some minor playtesting other decks that my group doesn't really go for combo wins themselves. We basically all build decks that try to accumulate high value cards either in hand or on the board. And to that end an enchantress deck with group hug added on to it would fit in perfectly.
Do note for yourself that the combo with Cloudstone Curio actually goes off with Patron of the Moon and having out Amulet of Vigor to generate not only infinite mana but also infinite landfall triggers. Meloku is more of the accumulated value type of card by comparison. Or illusion tribal. Whatever works.

Yeah, 13-15 good counterspells sounds like exactly the right amount for a 1v1 competitive format. I can absolutely understand it making a casual playgroup miserable, though.
The Blue Amonkhet God seems fun. Self-inflicted land-bounce reminds me of the moonfolk. Consider putting some moonfolk into the deck (like Tamiyo for sure obviously, but also, Oboro Envoy, Meloku, and Uyo). And then Terrain Generator and Walking Atlas. Maybe Patron of the Moon.

Omnath, Locus of Rage, The Gitrog Monster and Ob Nixilis, the Fallen as you said + Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Ashnod's Altar, Amulet of Vigor, Patron of the Moon, Meloku the Clouded Mirror, Trade Routes, Splendid Reclamation, possibly Worm Harvest definitely a few lands higher than a normal deck with some extra ramp of course, and some fetch lands even if it's just Evolving Wilds / Terramorphic Expanse and a few Panoramas for a budget build, and a few cycling lands like Lonely Sandbar or whatever. Possibly Crucible of Worlds and/or Life from the Loam for less budget builds.
That would be my take on where to start anyways...gl & hf

This looks super swell and powerful! You might like the kamigawa moonfolk. Being able to pick up lands for cool effects is darn nifty. Especially Patron of the Moon. If you don't mind me self-plugging, you might be able to find some inspiration in my landfall deck: Continental Tilt-a-Whirl. Stay frosty!

I love Jalira's possibilities, but I feel like there are a few areas where you can make some cheap and easy tweaks to improve the deck.
You have a few creatures here that I wouldn't be thrilled to polymorph into.
You have a lot of creatures that create tokens, like Drowner of Hope, Incubator Drone, Master of Waves, and Wall of Kelp. I would consider taking all of these out and adding Zoetic Cavern, and leaving those empty spaces to add some draw/lands, which I think you are lacking. I realize that Jalira wants stuff to stay in the library rather than in your hand, but you'll be able to pay the mana costs on these cards later in the game just fine.
Recurring Insight and Flow of Ideas are my favorites for big draw cards that won't break the bank. If either of these resolve, it can win you the game in the long run. I'd put in some islands in lieu of your deck-thinning non-basic lands (like your panoramas and Wilds/Expanse) for Flow of Ideas, since these lands are slowing down your game and eating into your Caged Sun and Scourge of Fleets profits. Blue has tons of draw options, and it doesn't need deck thinning, even in a polymorph build.
You also have a few creatures that are just uninspiring in general, like Morphling and Broodbirth Viper, which is blocked by everything. I would swap these with some fun ones, like Patron of the Moon, Tidespout Tyrant, or Azami, Lady of Scrolls. Or, if you've got some extra dough, Venser, Shaper Savant or Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir.
I would also think about swapping some of your instants. There is no reason to run Spell Rupture before Counterspell, and you don't have enough artifacts to play Thirst for Knowledge before you play Compulsive Research.
If you like these suggestions, I can make more. All in all, this looks like a fun deck to play, and I like where you're going with it.

landofMordor, Patron of the Moon is actually a really funny and creative Commander. A friend of mine played him. There are really funny Combos with him.I was trying to build a nightmares Tribal. The Problem is: They have a really strong or at least funny Lord: Chainer, Dementia Master. But there are to less black nightmares. I was trying to build a Control reabimator subtheme, but... After this i tried something with flicker effects, but this din not really work. Maybe Rakdos, Lord of Riots would be a possibility. There are good enough black and red nightmared and you can play a classic burn subtheme. And i tried Atog, of course with Atogatog. Sadly there are only 11 other Atogs, otherwise it could be a really strong deck.
