Thanks for writing everything out! My Neheb deck is still in early stages, and geared for a casual/fun to play set up. There are a few cards from the Ixalan set that you might wanna look atTilonalli's SummonerConsistant sink, great for balancing other tokens.Vanquisher's BannerNot great for your build but good Neheb card if you ran any tribal.

My decks MVP is Skyship StalkerIf you would do the honors I would value your opinion on my build.

Metallic Mimic maybe? Vanquisher's Banner is very good but I feel its a little too slow in this deck. Also of note: Counterspell is not legal in standard. Dire Fleet Neckbreaker is also overpowered in draft, not sure how it'd do in a constructed deck. Great deck MK24KIRK!

If you move this deck to modern, consider replacing Vanquisher's Banner with Door of Destinies and Coat of Arms.

If you want a reanimation zombie deck, The Scarab God might be right up your ally. Reanimation, burn, and deck structuringthree powerful tools, all on the same card.

Endless Ranks of the Dead is another fun, very flavourful zombie card. The art is also fantastic. It is a bit slow, since it only kicks in on your upkeep, but it can be a powerful win condition in protracted games.

Be sure not to forget your mana rocksDimir Signet, Sol Ring, etc. Protection for your commander, notably Lightning Greaves is also a must.

Finally, there are some cards every tribe should consider: Metallic Mimic, Coat of Arms, and Vanquisher's Banner all come to mind.

When youve finished your deck, be sure to link it here. Id love to take a look at the completed project.

I really like what you got here, but I might suggest Vanquisher's Banner for some great card draw

Ok, so some other thoughts. There are a ton of tribal merfolk lords (merfolk that give other merfolk +1/+1). You have very few of them. There are other ways such as Vanquisher's Banner, Door of Destinies, Mirror of the Forebears and Coat of Arms.

Also, you have at least 12 ETB effects. Consider Panharmonicon.

Furthermore, increase, increase, increase your card draw. There are many ways you can do this.

If you can afford the following, I think they would help:Empress Galina Errata says she is a merfolk and is affected by merfolk tribal. Primal Vigor or Doubling Season. I don't think the latter is necessary, but if you want both, they will incrase your counters and token out put.

I added Hero of Goma Fada, Bala Ged Thief, and Sea Gate Loremaster.

Sea Gate Loremaster adds an Ally and card advantage. Bala Ged Thief is great because you can really take advantage of multiple Allies entering the battlefield on the same turn, and it can cause discard at instant speed. Hero of Goma Fada is perfect for protecting against some board wipes and protects your creatures when you swing.

I would also recommend looking at Herald’s Horn (ramp of a sort/card advantage), Vanquisher's Banner (card advantage/boosts creatures), Harabaz Druid (ramp/mana fixing/Ally), Chasm Guide (haste is EXTREMELY useful in EDH), Tuktuk Scrapper (artifact removal/damages opponents/Ally), and Vedalken Orrery (makes ALL your Allies have flash!).

The best Allies are the ones that either effect all other Allies (e.g. Hero of Goma Fada) or would really take advantage of multiple Allies/flashed in Allies (e.g. Bala Ged Thief, Tuktuk Scrapper).
