Since you are playing Tatyova, Benthic Druid what about Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait . I dont know if you want the landfall ability in your deck but there are a lot more great inclusions to make in a simic deck. While being on this whole Landfall thingy, Pearl Lake Ancient works then very nice.

I think Reality Shift is not bad but Ravenform should be a better fit here, also there is Rapid Hybridization Since you are already playing big bad creatures what about a good ol' Hadana's Climb  Flip Since you are short on removal what about big bad Terastodon , yes it will bounce back with your very flavourfull boardwhipe Whelming Wave but afterall, that's something good, so you can replay it ;) Dont underestimate the value of a Krosan Grip , Splitsecond can catch people on the wrong foot, interrupting combos.

Talking about Whelming Wave why not double down and put a Cyclonic Rift in there aswell? Or for flavour this guy: Kederekt Leviathan . Or something rather stupid: Aethersquall Ancient and since you are most likely to be behind on board i'd slam an Evacuation right in there aswell. And maybe even one River's Rebuke and a Coastal Breach even Inundate should be fine here.

Playing Return of the Wildspeaker but not Soul's Majesty ? Seems like a hard miss for me.

Kodama of the East Tree seems like a good fit here, to cheat out some of the expensive stuff when you cast another one already, also works on lands. Something that works similar would be Imoti, Celebrant of Bounty . More on the topic cheating the mana cost, what about an Elvish Piper or a Quicksilver Amulet

Something protective is always good Thryx, the Sudden Storm

Your carddraw seems to be based on playing creatures with Garruk's Uprising and Elemental Bond (which is better in your deck because of it's Synergy with the tokens from Koma, Cosmos Serpent . But you can double down on that with cards like Guardian Project , Beast Whisperer , and The Great Henge . Colossal Majesty works similar to you but since you are ablte to include very high CMC stuff just slam a Zendikar Resurgent in there aswell.

But Since you should have the mana, what about a Blue Sun's Zenith , Stroke of Genius , Pull from Tomorrow or maybe just a Genesis Wave

Thrasios, Triton Hero and Staff of Domination will help you do something with excess mana.

Ramp is all fun an games, but your cmc is very high so why not go for Skyshroud Claim , Explosive Vegetation , Migration Path , Circuitous Route

Now to some more flavour which might not be good, but flavour you know? Kiora Bests the Sea God

And you are in Simic anyways, so let me dump some simic staples here anyways Oko, Thief of Crowns , Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath , Fierce Guardianship , Mana Drain , Force of Will

and last something very special, you are already very high in CMC, why not double down and play a Keruga, the Macrosage , you can double down and play it as your companion, that'd be fun. You wont miss out on too much. A lot of it is also available in 3CMC like Disallow , Saw It Coming , Simic Locket or Search for Tomorrow Some cards have CMC 3 but you can still do stuff on turn 1 and 2 ;) but that's up to you and how much you want to go down that road of memes and shattered dreams.

Lands looks fine, but since you are able to untapp some lands, maybe use a Lotus Field or atleast a Castle Garenbrig . Since your Devotion can be very high at somepoint Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx but be worth it.

  • It looks like you should have plenty of energy. Between triggers giving you energy and the cloning spells, you should have plenty to play with. Aethersquall Ancient may use a lot, but by the time you use it's ability again you should be sitting on a nice stockpile.
  • It DEFINITELY feels like an energy deck lol. The power level looks like it would be around a 6, but I'd have to play test it.
  • It looks like your ramp/removal is pretty well balanced. Your card draw seems kinda light, maybe consider adding Bonders' Enclave?

I had a few areas of concern:

  • Am I going to have enough energy to keep things going, or am I going to feel energy-starved when my big threats hit the table? Aethersquall Ancient, Aetherwind Basker, Aetherworks Marvel
  • Is it going to feel like an energy deck or did I cut too many cards for that to still feel like an integral theme?
  • Is my removal, ramp, card draw, finishers etc. balanced, or do I have some glaring weaknesses?
  • How's the power level/synergy?
  • Does anything need to be added/changed/removed?

I'ld suggest using Aethersquall Ancient instead of Perpetual Timepiece. I feel like there's not enough renewable energy gain as it is.

Have you thought about Architect of the Untamed ? It gives some useful energy sinks to make a big token. Appetite for the Unnatural is a pretty decent instant answer for a problematic enchantment/artifact too. You have some good interaction at sorcery speed but nothing to really deal with anyone's artifacts and enchantments. I also personally enjoy Aethersquall Ancient as a good energy creator with the possibility of bouncing everyone's stuff if you think they are getting a bit out of hand. If your more into token finishers, look at Cultivator of Blades , pump them up to a big number and then give everything on your field a ridiculous boost. I think that you might have a small issue of card advantage as well, so look for a couple of draw spells/creatures, peferably something repeatable like Glint-Sleeve Siphoner or Quicksmith Spy and although it might be out of budget, one of my personal favorite cards from this block is Lifecrafter's Bestiary You might also find that having so many tap lands can make you have some slow and awkward hands, so changing some of them to basic lands might not hurt, but that is up to you!

Noire_Samhain on Cyclonic Rift replacement.

Few cards can properly mimic it, but Devastation Tide returns all non-land permanents to the hand, and is cheap for its miracle cost, and Evacuation can return all creatures including yours. There are the creatures with a similar ability like Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep for non-sea creature creatures when kicked, Aethersquall Ancient for all creatures except it, and or a conditional enemy only creature bounce through Scourge of Fleets , which relies on having a lot of islands out.

Edit- Noticed Devastation tide was recommended.

Instead of Kaseto, Orochi Archmage, i would definitely look at getting Thassa, God of the Sea. Gives unblockable, plus a scry without the need for any green mana.

I also feel like Aethersquall Ancient will end up being lackluster due to the fact itll take so many turns before you can use the energy counter ability. Whelming Wave would do work in this deck as a replacement.

Also, another artifact you may like that gives double strike is Fireshrieker.

Love the deck, name is great too lol +1
