I would cut:
Creepy Doll: An okay deterrent but 5 mana is a good chunk for this effect.
Lorthos, the Tidemaker: Not the best giant sea creature for your deck. Ideally you only pay 2 mana to cast this but then you need 8 mana for its effect. 8 mana would be better spent 95% of the time suspending 4 cards.
AEtherplasm: You have better Jhoira replacement effects already in the deck. You are dependent on your opponents though for this to help you.
Stormtide Leviathan: This shuts down quite a bit of your own creatures. Unless you go strictly island walk and flying then it should be cut. Also a good swap out for your maybe board Ulamog if you own him.
Knowledge Pool: I love this card. Though, outside of Lavina decks and chaos it isn't that good. Once an opponent steals one of your Eldrazi this feels awful.
Wild Evocation: Not bad. Fits theme but you have quite a few cheating effects outside Jhoira. This one seems more expensive and can sometimes help your opponents more.

mynameisfifi I am a sucker for filthy stax and always wanted to build Llawan, so thank you for the list!
The Mechanized Production package is exactly what I needed. I am pretty careful with dropping Painter's Servant, but after one grind, its usually gone. I am going to swap spheres Damping for Resistance (Damping is not very effective in my meta), and pull Pendrell Mists for Mechanized Production right away.

- Trait Doctoring is bad. Consider swapping for Sway of Illusion, which I wish I had on several occasions playing the deck.
- Blind Seer could be useful... not sure.
- Painter's Servant gets TONS of hate, and doesn't last very long once it's out (making Grindstone very sad. There needs to be reliable methods of recursion in the deck.
- I want to stick a Stormtide Leviathan in here somewhere to help close out games.
The deck is a blast to play (not so much for the rest of the table) so I want to tweak it a bit - please share your thoughts! Especially on bullet 3 :)

I do run a deck similar to this one, where I cast strong Kracken, Srpent, Octopus & Leivithon creature cards. I however use Quest for Ula's Temple to cast my creatures instead of generating mana to cast my creatures. In my deck however I use Fog Bank to buy me enough time to "cast" my creatures. I would also consider adding an alternate won condition, such as Simic Ascendancy for example. I do find it odd the Stormtide Leviathan is in your sideboard; I personally do find this to be queit a strong card when played as it can prevent alot of damage you take due to your oppents being unable to attack with most creatures.

This build looks pretty complete for a sea monsters theme. If you are concerned about additional ways to cheat out the big Krakens and all, then I would suggest looking at Quicksilver Amulet and Elvish Piper. Otherwise I think you are running enough ramp to cast the sea monsters fairly early.
A few other cards you might consider are Wonder (for Stormtide Leviathan), Thryx, the Sudden Storm, Thada Adel, Acquisitor to steal opponents mana rocks, Elder Deep-Fiend as a safety net, Propaganda to blunt early aggression, Giant Oyster because it is on theme and hilarious, and Rush of Knowledge
+1 from me!

When I saw this deck I was pretty intrigued, especially since I love big blue creatures ( Stormtide Leviathan was my first rare from 2013 core set back when I joined). I was inspired to quickly come up with my own version: Ula's Temple. One recommendation I have is Dizzy Spell ; it acts as an additional copy of quest for ula's temple, plus it can also find clockspinning and shrink a creature in a pinch. I tried to use creatures like Judge's Familiar as disruption instead of instants to help my chances with Ula's temple; plus, without the need to leave mana open, it makes more sense to run Contentious Plan instead of Steady Progress . Grozoth will let you tutor for multiple inkwell leviathans, which would be pretty devastating. Also, Street Wraith would up your creature count and thin out your deck.
