Hey, nice version, but you forgot Whelming Wave?
Frantic Search is a really good enabler for Runo, by discarding a 6 CMC creature and then use the three lands you untap to cast Runo. Lim-Dul's Vault is another excellent enabler since you have a lot of life in Commander.
Reanimation helps when playing so many high CMC creatures and a low amount of lands. With Apprentice Necromancer the creature you reanimate has haste letting it attack to be copied by Krothuss the same turn you reanimate. Obsessive Stitcher is a repeatable looter and can reanimate even at instant speed on your last opponent's turn to then attack with that creature and Krothuss on your turn. Both these reanimation sources are creatures which can be helpful with Krothuss, if the battlefield is clear to attack to copy. Victimize is sac a creature, most likely a token copy, to reanimate any two creatures.
Victimize and Time Warp, etc. here go well with Archaeomancer to recur them to cast again because Archaeomancer is a creature who Krothuss can copy. Can be infinite extra turns for repeatable five mana as long as Krothuss can keep attacking and copying Archaeomancer. Baleful Strix is great to mutate with Sea-Dasher Octopus, making a 2/2 Octopus with flying, deathtouch, draw a card when it ETB and when it does combat damage to a player.
Attacking creature you want to copy with Krothuss, Spawning Kraken, 9/9 Krakens, etc. can really benefit from evasion. Wonder is nice because you can discard it and you have a lot of Islands. Archetype of Imagination is a 6 CMC creature who also makes your creatures nearly unblockable and pairs with Stormtide Leviathan. Junk Winder is a Serpent who pairs well with Spawning to tap down opponent blockers.
If interested I offer suggestions of cards to cut. Good luck with your deck.

The deck looks good, but pretty light on lands. Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire and Bolas's Citadel both seem like powerful and important additions. Varragoth can help you trigger Runo, and Citadel turns him into a reanimation spell. Archetype of Imagination helps you get your fatties through.

Hey, good start. This new Commander is really interesting and I like that there's at least two different clear ways to setup to transform him.
It's too bad you're going with a restrictive creature type theme since Baleful Strix and Tomebound Lich are quite good creatures with Krothuss, Lord of the Deep and Lich is a discard outlet for Runo/other reanimation. You're playing many nonHuman, nonMerfolk and nonKraken/Leviathan/Octopus/Serpent creatures therefore maybe make the exception for these two?
42 is a lot of creatures. Consider cutting some for some more low CMC spells to help to setup Runo by getting a 6 CMC or greater creature into your graveyard or putting one from your hand on top of your library?
Spellseeker is a very good Human especially if you get to make copies of her with Krothuss. Archetype of Imagination is a 6 CMC Human and it makes it very difficult for your opponents to block Krothuss/the attacking creature/attacking token copy of that creature; basically they're unblockable. Pair Archetype with Stormtide Leviathan.
Obsessive Stitcher is a Human, a looter for Runo and best of all a reanimation source that can be at instant speed. Archaeomancer is a Human and it can recur a reanimation spell such as Victimize or any other instant/sorcery; it's nice if you get to make copies of her with Krothuss.
Some cards to consider cutting:
- Enlightened Maniac
- Library Larcenist
- Docent of Perfection
- Voldaren Pariah
- Shipbreaker Kraken
- Icebreaker Kraken
- Inga Rune-Eyes
- Trench Behemoth
- Wayfarer's Bauble
- Sky Diamond
- Nadir Kraken
Good luck with your deck.

Have you considered Archetype of Imagination? It triggers Alela, and it knocks down all blockers, allowing the Fae to flit over unopposed!

Green does actually have wraths, but they typically lean toward the eradication of artifacts / enchantments, or creatures with flying (for some dumb reason). Back to Nature, Calming Verse, Creeping Corrosion, Essence Filter, Glyph of Reincarnation if you can set it up properly, Hush, Multani's Decree, Primeval Light, Rampage of the Clans, Reverent Silence (Honestly an overpowered card in certain groups), Seeds of Innocence, Serene Heart, Tranquil Domain, Tranquil Grove (WHAT?!), ... there's more but you get the idea.
As for creature wraths, only Whirlwind.
:) Because Simic gonna Simic.
But by far, my favorite wrath is Wave of Vitriol.
This spell costs less to cast for each creature you control of the chosen type.
Choose a creature type. Destroy all creatures except for the those who share the chosen type. If this spell cost or more less to cast, end the turn.
Make another wrath that doesn't hit creatures. Any other permanent type is fine. Just leave the creatures alone.

Fun looking deck, I imagine it's super annoying for other players, but maybe that is your groups meta.
