That gives me an idea: unblockable creatures can create some nice fast ramp with that dagger and Mark of Sakiko as daggers 5-8.

I may be one of the few that actually remember playing Mercadian Masque in the Type 2 (Standard for you whippersnappers.) format. My favorite card of the set, outside of
. It was only a 6/6 unblockable for eight mana, which is way overpriced by today's current Standards. A little surprised you didn't mention
the card. It was the first of it's kind with the most recent "reprint" being
. Or my favorite/annoying combo consisting of
There were five artifacts, one land and a handful of white rebels that created lore of a creature that would eventually end up being printed for Commander 2017, Ramos, Dragon Engine . The first iterations of the artifact dragon came from Henge of Ramos , Eye of Ramos , Heart of Ramos , Horn of Ramos , Skull of Ramos and Tooth of Ramos .

Personally i'd get rid of: Cloud Manta, Deep-Sea Terror, Deepglow Skate, Boundless Realms, Farseek, Genesis Storm, Nissa's Renewal, Skyshroud Claim, Giant Growth, Glissa's Scorn, Naturalize, Pulse of Murasa, Sweep Away
and replace with things like: Hedron Crab, Tidal Kraken, Serpent of the Endless Sea , Kraken of the Straits, Isleback Spawn, Grozoth, Sealock Monster, Stormsurge Kraken, Benthic Behemoth, Breaching Leviathan, Guard Gomazoa, Gomazoa, Dormant Gomazoa, Broken Bond

The flying kraken theme is sick!!
First of all, I just discovered that Standard is not the format we normally play. Vintage is our format, so you'll want to change that to get an accurate list of illegal cards that you might have in the deck.
Consider finding blue cards to replace the green & white ones. The non-basic lands were a clever choice, but I don't think they give you good enough odds.
Your average creature cost is still pretty high. Even if you started the game with 7 lands, you would only be able to play one creature per turn...once you're 7 turns into the game. Consider EITHER finding a wider variety of low cost sea monsters -- Reef Worm is awesome! -- OR adding spells that let you search your library for lands.
Deep-Sea Kraken & Tidal Kraken seem repetitive. Also remember that Flying creatures can only be blocked by other Flying creatures or creatures w/ Reach, so it will usually be unnecessary for your krakens to be unblockable + flying (using Aerial Formation, Aboshan's Desire, etc).
Decide what goal you want your Instants & Sorceries to accomplish. Should they let you accumulate land by drawing cards? Should they buff your creatures? Should there be such a strong focus on defensive, counter spells? If you only have one card for each of these goals, you probably won't be able to pull it off.
Even though it seems cool to have a deck with one of every Kraken, you could build a much more powerful deck using specific strategies of just a few Krakens. Thing in the Ice Flip seems awesome! Defensive strategy in early game, then transition to huge offensive mid-game. Perhaps you could have 4 of those by getting rid of the Kraken Hatchlings.
For collector value and cool purposes, you could still order one of each Kraken to put in a binder LOL. Most of the cards are cheap, you can see their prices by clicking the orange shopping cart icons on the right site of the screen in this site.

I love these decks. I did a bit of playtesting, and I have to say, they seem fairly evenly matched. (And nothing gives me more pleasure than bashing in with a 27/16 Metalwork Colossus with flying, first strike, and trample)
I love the decks, and their price! I might pick them up in paper.
