You can still cast instants during your cleanup step. It is a bit more technical than that though. For example: Discarding a land due to hand size during clean up step triggers Gitrog's draw ability. The Draw trigger is now on the stack, you can respond to that trigger by casting an instant.

But let's pretend you have Emergence Zone on the field during your clean up step. You can use it's second ability and now cast any card from your hand. Preferably when you have drawn your whole deck.

You do have the option to cast the combo during your opponent's upkeep too. The more you play the more you will realize that finding the optimal time to cast your combo is a bit harder than getting the combo itself.

Fetch and shock lands will not make the deck faster. You are looking for those zero cmc mana rocks such as Mox Opal , Chrome Mox , Mox Amber , Mana Crypt , and etc. Even then you won't benefit much unless you are casting two to three merfolks/spells in a single turn. If you are then you can also add Mana Vault and Grim Monolith to that list.

But your deck is about using the TAP mechanic, and not about casting multiple spells in a turn. So fast mana might not be the answer for you.

Instead please consider the follow two suggestions: Recruiter of the Guard , and Thalia's Lancers to help you tutor for your combo pieces.
