For the general Maybes: Curiosity or Quicken would seem nice. Cathedral of War for more damage with fewer creatures. Depending on how Merfolky you make this, there are some great options for versatility to your deck (more counters, mill, draw, etc). Lullmage Mentor, Sigil Tracer, Deepchannel Mentor, Leech Bonder, Cursecatcher. Merfolk Sovereign among others.
Switching to tribal may throw off the mojo this deck has, but give a second look to cards: Razorfin Abolisher, Saprazzan Legate (tribal merfolk loves to change land types), Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Waterfront Bouncer.

The deck you are describing sounds exactly like what I used to run so I'm just going to post my favorite cards from it here. Memory Plunder, Wrexial, the Risen Deep, Diluvian Primordial, Sepulchral Primordial, Silent-Blade Oni, Mindleech Mass, Thada Adel, AcquisitorNightveil Specter, Knowledge Exploitation, Praetor's Grasp, Bribery, Blatant Thievery, and as said earlier Geth, Lord of the Vault. Green doesn't really have much in the thieving department but it does have ramp and non-creature removal which are both very important in commander.

Hahaha I looked at Ramirez several times and almost put him in. Now I feel like he's a must have! Ultimately though Thada Adel, Acquisitor beat him in utility.
As far as the difficulty, you're right there is a lot going on but I wanted the deck to be fun and interesting to play rather than a basic intro deck. He knows the general order of the game and honestly he will only be playing this with me and my brother so we can be there to walk him through any questions he might have at the start. I just ordered the deck and a few of the maybe cards so we will see how it all plays out.
Thanks for the kudos! I will cherish them.

Thanks for the comments on this and Part-ners: Ravos, SoulCycler. I hadn't considered Kusari-Gama yet. Between Whispersilk Cloak, Whirler Rogue, and Key to the City, I think I am happy with the number of evasion pieces for now. I also have a few other forms of recursion in the deck between Trading Post, Skeleton Shard and Beacon of Unrest, in case Silas doesn't have a clear path to through the battlefield.
Burnished Hart is a tempting target, but I am trying to spread the love between various partners. I may give the Hart to a deck without as many mana rocks (maybe Ravos, Soultender -- recursion in the command zone and the Hart's even from Theros!).

Last time I asked you guys what Mono colored commander I should construct. I wanted something fun and you guys most certainly delivered, that Thada Adel, Acquisitor deck is by-far my favorite deck I've made so-far. Thank you for that.
So I've come back to ask yet again what to build. This time no color limit, I just want something fun and easier on your wallet. I'm leaning towards commanders, and little explanations on the average decks made with them at the helm.
I'll give you a little help finding the ball park.My friends whom I play with, play Animar, Jhoira, Alesha, Tajic, Saskia, and Tazri. I don't wanna overlap, so those guys are a little off limit. I've never been a huge fan of not having creatures. I like "steal stuff" decks, but Thada is that already, though I will hear people out if it's different enough. My playgroup likes to avoid Stax and I'm iffy on doing Voltron. Competitiveness is not what I'm looking for, Strong is good, but being top tier isn't necessary. That should kinda some-up what I'm looking for.
TLDR; Suggest a fun commander that isn't Stax or Voltron. Competitiveness is optional.
I know you guys got this. Thank you at the very least for checking this post out. Ur even more awesome if you leave a suggestion.
