Cool deck! I have one very similar: Tidal Trouble.

I would highly recommend dropping Quest for Ula's Temple. It's a total trap.

I'd put the changes on hold for 3 months, once you see what's in Ikoria, Lair of Behemoths. It's bound to have low drops to fit your theme and effective ramp/ Quest for Ula's Temple -type cards.

Kiora, the Crashing Wave is kinda a pet card that I've always wanted to build around and whenever I do I seem to always end up with a deck that feels more like a deck that happens to have her in it rather than a deck truly built around her... I've messed with Quest for Ula's Temple and a few gimmicky simic counter decks and they just didn't quite feel right.

I'm think really leaning towards building a turbofog brew with proliferate spells to get the -5 emblem accompanied by a Whelming Wave for a win condition. (Avoiding the typical mill strategy)

Does anyone have any thoughts on good sideboard options for simic colors to assist with noncombat oriented/combo decks?... so far Negate , Dispel and Beast Within seem to be the main things that speak to me.

This looks pretty interesting. I'd consider leaning into an entirely colourless package with tron lands, and use Fist of Suns , but the bringers deserve to see the light. There are a lot of 'cheat big stuff' shells out there. Being reanimator is likely the strongest option, and I might try the dice archetype's mana package, to just make a ton of mana. Far from the most fun.

Pentad Prism is used to power out ad-nausiem, and artifact ramp cards offer options.

The unique thing about the big changeling is that he can abuse tribal cards. So go tinker with that.

I had dreams of dropping krakens on each upkeep. It took me an emotional minute to process that Quest for Ula's Temple was never a good odds card. So to overcompensate I swapped in Emrakul, the Promised End . Not technically an octopus but I'm including the tentacle monster anyway as a nod to Lovecraft.

The big question is, 'how competitive'.

First things, flat upgrades and options. Elvish Mystic can be another four llanowar elves, cards like Skinshifter tend to perform better than Fog Bank , Elvish Rejuvenator is usually better than borderland ranger and even Farhaven Elf is bettered by Sakura-Tribe Elder . In terms of big threats, things that can't be hit by your opponent are popular. Inkwell Leviathan , Kalonian Behemoth , Plated Crusher , Drownyard Behemoth etc. Another popular type is cards that help you stabilize- Pelakka Wurm type effects.

In terms of stratgy, focusing on mana curve will do a lot. Plan turns 1-7, and try to make sure that doing one thing flows cleanly into the next thing.

If you want to get super competitive, Arbor Elf , Utopia Sprawl and Birds of Paradise is the core of this deck style. Traditionally, it ramps into 4-5 drop threats, which are the largest spells not-cheated in modern. 1 drop turn 1, 3 drop turn two, 5 drop turn three. Thragtusk is old school with it, but there are various five drops that perform well enough, and most of it fits into the 'ponza' land destruction archetype or other ramp strategies (titan, combos, etc) when you want to go full spike.

Now for the middle roads- the fun kitchen table stuff. Leyline of Abundance offers huge payoffs for playing a lot of 1 drop mana dorks. Quest for Ula's Temple / Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep / Whelming Wave offers a cute tribal strategy, while things like Quicksilver Amulet let you cheat big stuff into play. Mirror Image / Quasiduplicate / Saheeli, Sublime Artificer / Tendershoot Dryad is a cute 'go wide' strategy which lets you mess around with Mirrorweave .

If you can think of it, theres a combination of cards that let you do it somewhere in magic- the trick is getting them to run smoothly.
