THE reason to play Dovescape in EDH is the Guile lock, meaning you want enchantment tutors. You've picked an awkward commander to pair with Dovescape , though. If you want to build a UW enchantress deck, Taigam, unlike most other Monks of recent years, doesn't trigger off enchantments. Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest , Tuvasa the Sunlit , and Zur the Enchanter are better enchantment-themed commanders. I see token elements to the deck, as well. Consider Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun or Medomai the Ageless as a commander if you want to beat down. Finally, check out EDHREC. The themes tab at the top right of the main page will give you rec's for tokens, enchantress, pillowfort, whatever.

How is your deck building going?

3 down, 5 to go! A few things in no particular order:
1) You can tag other users in your comments using double brackets around user:username, like so: Farel. They'll get a notification when you do, so it lets people know you've responded. :)
2) Have you looked into price? A few others mentioned it - the difference is meaningful. Here's current Market Price on TCGplayer:
Breed Lethality $135
Devour for Power $90
Entropic Uprising $90
Mirror Mastery $110
Swell the Host $65
Adaptive Enchantment $30
3) Whether or not cost is an issue, based on your play style I'd suggest either Swell the Host or Adaptive Enchantments. Neither are that strong out of the box, but half the fun of a commander pre-con is upgrading it. Both can be plenty strong - and more important, a lot of fun to play - with modest upgrades.
Swell the Host is traditional Simic - lots of +1/+1 counters and creature tricks (unblockable, etc.) -- it's great timing for this deck, with all the new Ravnica cards ( Incubation Druid , Simic Ascendancy ). It's also flexible - lots of directions to take it, from snake tribal to tokens to +1/+1 counter combos.
Adaptive Enchantments has a sub-commander that might be better than the main commander: Tuvasa the Sunlit . This deck has amazing card draw, and is heavily creature-based because you're playing Auras all game. Add another Enchantress and cards like Steel of the Godhead and Shield of the Oversoul ... Or throw in Rafiq of the Many and Sublime Archangel and make it an Exalted theme. Lots of options.
Good luck and have fun!

Yay. Everyone loves some Commander. It's pretty much Magic as Richard Garfield, Ph.D. intended. If you want to see what your options are, I recommend checking out EDHREC. If you click on the Commanders tab at the top, you can see what your options are in each color identity, and if you click on the themes (tribal, +1/+1 counters, graveyard, etc.) tab, you can see if any of those styles of decks speak to you, and the site will show you what decks across the internet from sources such as TappedOut run in those decks. The other thing you can do is, if you have pet cards you would like to build around, you can enter those cards in the search bar, and it will tell you how many decks that card is played in, and what the most common cards are to see it run alongside.
I know you said you don't care much beyond liking UG, but, to get you started on ideas, if you like UG Merfolk, I recommend Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca if you want to go hard tribal or Tatyova, Benthic Druid if you want to draw cards and ramp. I built her as Druid tribal, and the deck is a blast. If you really don't care about creature type, but putting out an army, drawing cards, and taking extra turns is appealing to you, Edric, Spymaster of Trest is powerful and fun. If it's the counters aspect of Merfolk you enjoy, Experiment Kraj is a fun one, and if it's playing at instant speed that appeals to you, Rashmi, Eternities Crafter is the pick.
If you want to branch into a third color, you can have your Merfolk (Lorwyn goodies that come in UB or WU such as Sygg, River Cutthroat included) and your counter theme with Thrasios, Triton Hero + Reyhan, Last of the Abzan / Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker , or you can go enchantress with Tuvasa the Sunlit .
Check out the full list of options on EDHREC, especially in the themes section, and good luck!

Hey I just got to say hkhssweiss that background looks amazing for you're Tuvasa the Sunlit deck. I would like to do something such as that for possibly my Atraxa, Praetors' Voice list and or Sliver Overlord at some point, but this level of coding is beyond me atm. When I have more time I will see if I can think of some suggestions for it, but for now I will leave an upvote.

I also like to build. And I try to build differently than others where possible. As a player with many years of experience, and currently 31 sleeved up commander decks, I will give you my thoughts on these commanders and give ideas that would show you a couple paths you could take with a non high end of the competitive scale build of these partners.
Both abilities speak to card advantage. So can work well together. With both being able to be highly competitive commanders. So if we are going to use them just for their card advantage, it leaves the doors open to many archetypes. With Tymna's ability you need creatures to attack with, which limits it to more creature heavy builds. Here are a few build ideas:
You could go with an enchantress theme (I have a bant colored one, so this adds black to the mix - which has some powerful enchantments). This would basically use the commanders for card advantage. You could look at both Daxos the Returned and Tuvasa the Sunlit deck lists for card ideas. Enchantment decks already use card advantage to win, so the commanders would have a use. And many enchantments create creatures and many useful cards in these decks are creatures, so both commander abilities would be useable. Some of the "gods" and enchantment creatures from theros would work well in this type of deck.
Another way you could go is aristocrats. A deck where you gain advantage through creatures sacrifice usually to gain advantage. These deck usually can attack and still sacrifice for good causes while attacking. The color combination is good for this, but it's not going to be top end. I enjoy my blue/black aristocrats deck I just built. It's not really strong enough now for my playgroup to win often, but I'm working on that. But I played it and really like the play style.
My last suggestion is you could go tribal. Tribal offers many creatures to attack with, so both commanders abilities could be used reliably. The most obvious of the tribes would be elves, but humans could be chosen also. With elves you have mana to dump your hand and need ways to fill hand back up. There are elf commanders in white/green, green/blue, and green/black so looking at lists for those decks could give you ideas to put in your deck. And since there is no 4 color elf leader (that I'm aware of) your deck would be unique.
You can use edhrec.com for card ideas. But I agree with others, some of the cards suggested are not optimal and/or will only work in certain builds of the deck.
I am sorry if I explained things you already knew. But others who read this might not understand, so I tend to explain everything.
My deck in theses colors would be of no help to you, as I went Atraxxa with ramp and what my group say are "unfun" win cons.

For going on the budget wise, Enchantress Voltron is the way to go. Rafiq can get super nasty extremely fast and can threaten a kill by T3. Luckily enough as well a lot of enchantress cards have been reprinted and are dirt cheap.
Going for this route as well gives you access to a lot of utility protection as well as card advantage (CA). Exalted smack down is better in the value build but as you said your meta is comparably fast, making an voltron Rafiq is much harder to remove.
Starting off the deck, essentially cut away all cards that don't provide any advantage and run cheap enchantments such as Utopia Sprawl , Wild Growth , Fertile Ground and Burgeoning for the ramp. All enchantresses should be in here such as Mesa Enchantress , Kor Spiritdancer , Sram, Senior Edificer , Tuvasa the Sunlit , etc.
Now for the bulk of the cards, for enchantments. Off the bat one of them is Vanishing , Pemmin's Aura or Shielding Plax , these cards are our protection against targeted removal. Flickerform is also protection and can trigger CA from Eidolon of Blossoms .
For huge damage, Ethereal Armor , Ancestral Mask , Sage's Reverie , Blessing of the Nephilim can all do wonders in making Rafiq either one shot or at least a two turn clock. One of the few exalted creatures I would keep though is Sublime Archangel as well Qasali Pridemage . Their utility and damage they can accumulate is enormous enough to be considered a slot and a threat by itself.
For further ideas, I also have an enchantress deck you can look at, Tuvasa of the Eternal Aeon | Primer. Most of the card value is from the lands but, take away those and some of the expensive other cards and you can get by to at least $150 without including the cards you already own.
Feel free to ask any more help, definitely within my forte in voltron commander :P
