I have a couple of those included or on a very close side board/chopping block/shoe-in position.
I actually have Tainted Isle in the deck, just not added here I believe (but I will look into that)... On that same note River of Tears should be an auto-include. Phenax is cool... But I don't picture running enough creatureish toughness to care for him that much (I'll see how test plays go though). Mind Funeral is nifty... Although I like taking a shot at all targets at once... Though I have seen how effective: "mill until x lands are revealed", can be. Keening Stone could be a strong alternative finisher, and I do own one so it will probably make an appearance again. I like Notion Thief alot and along the same vein I also really like Sygg, River Cutthroat although I can see the potential for massive backfire with both :) I HATE cyclonic rift even though it destroys people, I will think of it since I can use it then one of my low-cost selective discard spells to discard something nifty.
That Which Was Taken is nice for indestructible + hexproof or just protecting my other paper-thin stuff... but may be too slow in comparison to a more wincon-style card at similar speed - al'a: Keening Stone. I like some of those other cut cards too darn much though.

@chirz2792 Thanks for the tips! This is my first attempt at an EDH deck and I wasn't sure if hybrid cost cards could be treated as monocolored or not. Dang, I need a replacement for Sygg, River Cutthroat now. As for Your suggested cards, I agree that they would be fun, but The first two are out of my price range. As for Genesis Wave, I've considered it, and I'm not entirely sold. Pretty much all my big wincon cards that I'd like to cast for free are Nonpermanents, so I'm not sure I'd want to blow a bunch of mana on something that, in a 7 mana GWave scenario, would on average put a maybe a mana source and a control magic onto the battlefield, while potentially putting a spell like Blatant Thievery into my graveyard. Blatant Thievery costs the same as the GWave and a) will give me a stable amount of permanents (barring a boardwipe), b) give me a number of permanents above Gwave average amount of permanents of my choice to play with, while c)also stealing them from my opponents.

Darkshadow327 I will leave a comment on your deck shortly.
I have spent some time updating my Sygg, River Cutthroat deck as I found it was too reliant on trying to convince my opponents to fight each other. I have attempted to make the deck more focused on using evasive threats that continue to draw me cards or just win the game outright. Thanks for taking a look!

Any particular reason for only bringing 2 Aether Vials? Whether you have it or not on your opening hand is determining your whole game plan, and merfolk is a tier 1 deck when it you have it, and a tier 3 deck when you don't.
Also, you can go down to 20 lands (with 2 more vial). Maybe add in a Ghost Quarter or 2.
Squelch is a card I've had piles of fun with, in particular against tron decks (Oblivion Stone, planeswalker activations... no problem anymore), but works fine against anything with a very greedy manabase full of fetchlands too.
You can also play a single copy of Sygg, River Cutthroat. It's just for fun and giggles, but it feels sooooo great when it grabs 3 cards for you in one match.
