1x Myr Adapter 1x Phyrexian Digester 1x Quicksilver Behemoth 2x Relic Runner 2x Somber Hoverguard 1x Secrets of the Golden City 1x Foresight 1x Peek
That should give you a more aggressive (power-wise) curve, and clean up some of the numbers!
If you want anything else, 4x Seat of the Synod would be sweet!

A swap you could make for Atog's benefit is replacing the Arcbound Worker with Sparring Construct. I'm also not sure you want 4 Myr Enforcer, but I don't know what a solid replacement for it would be. Somber Hoverguard or perhaps Gearseeker Serpent.

Thanks for the suggestions!
I had previously bought all the creatures you'd mentioned when assembling this deck on MTGO.
The Simic Sky Swallower just feels weirdly vanilla to me. It's obviously not with three separate abilities but given the sweep or unblockable nature provided by the others, Shroud and Flample just don't excite me the same way.
As for the Kederekt Leviathan I considered and dismissed it because, for that mana, I'd much prefer a one sided board sweep. Sure, we'd have a 5/5 when all was said and done but things like Teferi's Protection would mess us up badly on that play. I just don't like the risk it exposes us to.
The Kiora planeswalker is valid. Kiora Bests the Sea God would be magical One on One but somewhat less so in Multiplayer and the Reef Worm just feels like too many hoops to get to my Kraken. I'm very impatient and lazy. I want my big stuff NOW.
I really appreciate the input though! I'll have to test with the Serpent of Yawning Depths soon.

Setessan Champion is just a rehash of Eidolon of Blossoms caring about enchantments is very green.
The moment I saw the art for elspeth with the black aura around her spear/staff and saw her mono-white, minus only abilities, is the moment I stopped caring for any of the backstories of the set.
Not expressively bringing back keywords like Heroic has been going on for a few years - for example, Gearseeker Serpent literally has affinity for artifacts on it, but it is never named that.
Escape, from the cards debuted so far, has a very steep cost cost. It is likely costed steeply, because self-mill is a thing and costing escape differently can make it difficult to stop. Also, limited considerations.
Eidolon of philosophy is likely only costed for limited play, where a 1/2 will actually be played.
Memory drain is indeed underpowered. It is a limited-oriented counterspell and even then, it is weak. 4 mana soft counters do not get played, even in limited, eg Crush Dissent .
Demigod is a new thing that could have been a thing on the OG Theros, but hardly worth returning to Theros.
Klothys is most likely the human servant of Kruphix depicted on the art.
Overall, from what is shown right now, theros is not worth returning to at all. We have demigods and 1 new overcosted-as-to-not-be-OP mechanic in Escape. Very underwhelmed.

Kinda some weird flexes for ya:
I do think that you have a strong concept with the deck design. My main concerns are a lack of answers against large threats such as Gurmag Angler , Gearseeker Serpent and Ulamog's Crusher . Additionally I think that the deck requires more focus in its midrange interaction style and I'm thinking Battle Screech could be cut from the deck for more interaction such as Emerge Unscathed , Cho-Manno's Blessing , or Brute Force .

Your list is very similar to mine, Affinity: Flinging 'Togs. The only differences are:
I assume we both think our own versions are better, but what are your thoughts on this?
