Glen Elendra Archmage
Creature — Faerie Wizard
, Sacrifice Glen Elendra Archmage: Counter target noncreature spell.
Persist (When this creature dies, if it had no -1/-1 counters on it, return it to the battlefield under its owner's control with a -1/-1 counter on it.)

Coward_Token - As far as the reprints go, nothing on the level of The Chain Veil in Commander Masters, though if this set came out before Commander Masters, Kindred Dominance would've been up there, but there are some solid ones:
Nothing spectacular, but a decent bunch of reprints none-the-less.

depends on what you want, Aven is a better beater but, Agent is card advantage.
Make a cut for Teferi's Ageless Insight (I cut Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. Archfiend of Ifnir is a good one sided wipe in this deck)
More 1 drop creature and more legendary creature suggestions are welcome. (legendary creatures take advantage of Gold-Forged Thopteryx etc).
Less counter spells required due to many protection spells in deck.
Glen Elendra Archmage w/connive you can keep her online
Consider Rhystic Study (slows my creature attack strat. But op... Gix, Yawgmoth Praetor in its place for now)
Weak to oppo swing back. Solutions include war tax effects and vigilance.

Yeah Dangerwillrobinson79, it has great replay value because you end up mixing and matching different Frankenstein combinations with The Mimeoplasm, you can win through big bruisers that you keep reanimating, or even steal games with Sidisi, Brood Tyrant after a Hermit Druid activation. There are other toolbox modes too like getting Glen Elendra Archmage out once The Mimeoplasm is on board to keep protection live, or using Stormtide Leviathan and/or Toxrill, the Corrosive to control the board. It's always different and never feels unfair so it's a ton of fun for me.

From here, most of my suggestions are towards just making your deck more efficient and better equipped to deal with potential threats.
Yeah, as shadow63 said, you don't have nearly enough ramp. Personally, I would cut Ormos, Archive Keeper, Nyxbloom Ancient, Dragonlord Dromoka, and Avacyn, Angel of Hope right off the bat and replace them with the likes of Birds of Paradise, Elvish Mystic, Noble Hierarch, and maybe even Sylvan Caryatid. If you wanted to keep a similar effect to Dragonlord Dromoka, I'd advise running Grand Abolisher instead as it's much cheaper CMC-wise.
In addition, I'd completely redo your mana base. I'd recommend things like Command Tower, Mana Confluence, City of Brass, Reflecting Pool, the three shocklands in bant colors, and at least the three fetch lands in bant colors. These would make your deck much more consistent. I'd also work to add in more spot removal like Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Generous Gift, and Beast Within.
You can also cut stuff like Decree of Silence for cheaper yet similar options. Glen Elendra Archmage is a good and cheaper alternative that does something kind of similar. For Force Bubble you could potentially get away with running Elephant Grass instead. Instead of Sandwurm Convergence you could run something like Norn's Annex. Instead of Open the Vaults you can run Replenish.

It may seem janky, but many of the sagas work well in Muldrotha
2 of the above are recurring board wipes
Perpetual Timepiece for protection and more mill
Jeweled Lotus Is helpful for casting/recasting Muldrotha
Some other combos you could consider:
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Melira, Sylvok Outcast combo well with persist creatures like River Kelpie, Woodfall Primus, Glen Elendra Archmage, Putrid Goblin, and Puppeteer Clique as infinite sac targets.
Melira also works with Devoted Druid for infinite mana

A few more that I've found:
Vanish into Memory - This is a flicker card that draws you a new hand. Use it after Perrie made something big so you draw 6+ cards and then discard 3 or fewer when it comes back in.
Parallax Wave - Flicker, removal, protection, combo engine, value engine, this card is bananas and criminally underplayed. Not to mention it comes with fade counters.
Elspeth Resplendent - Honestly a pretty standard walker, not amazing, but it potentially brings 7 types of counters to your board.
Vivien, Monsters' Advocate - Unlike the last one, this is an EDH playable walker, fits the theme.
Nissa, Voice of Zendikar - Three mana walkers are stupid
Endless Detour - Amazing removal that can only be run in these colors.
Glen Elendra Archmage - Most of the persist and undying creatures don't seem that good for this deck, this one seems like the best by a pretty wide margin.
Luminous Broodmoth - Flying counters and a powerful interaction with flicker effects.

Malevolent Hermit Flip doesn't really fill the same role as Mari, the Killing Quill it's a control piece, rather than a card advantage piece. I considered Hermit for a time, but felt that Glen Elendra Archmage and Voidmage Prodigy fill that role better due to fewer restrictions/caveats and better synergy with the rest of the deck generally. It's not a bad card, but I think it's slightly outclassed in some ways. Depending on your meta it might be a good include over an alternative removal oriented card. Banewhip Punisher for example I like since it tends to create good board control and is useful in creature metas, but if you're more worried about non-creatures then it could be a good substitution.
I don't personally think Imperial Seal is all that worthwhile. It's much worse than Vampiric Tutor as the main advantage of being instant speed so you can cast it right before your turn is lost, and it's worse than Demonic Tutor since you need to wait to get it from the top of your library. If anything, I guess I'd cut Diabolic Intent. Even then, I value getting access to the card right away pretty highly. With Diabolic Intent you're trading the requirement of needing a creature in play for the need to either wait a turn or have a cheap card draw effect available. Depending on how much card draw you run it could be better for you, but in a vacuum I wouldn't make the substitution. If you're in a combo focused build then you want as many cheap tutors as you can get, so the analysis changes a lot, but in a more midrange-y, value based deck like I play it's just not as much of a priority.

Glen Elendra Archmage is already in my list. I don't think I have anything that outright wins the game with the GEA and Mikaeus combo at the moment, but that's just personal preference. It would be easy to sub in Goblin Bombardment or etc to make it work though.
Etrata, the Silencer is too narrow and slow of a card for me in most situations I think. Similarly, as alexjustdoit pointed out, Nautiloid Ship requires a bit too many hoops for my tastes. You need: an opponent with decent cards in their grave, 3 power to crew it with, to hit with it, and then obviously 4 mana to play it in the first place. Ultimately I think it's also suffering from being a bit too slow / bulky of a card for most games.
