Horn of Greed
Whenever a player plays a land, that player draws a card.

I would say try adding Horn of Greed and Exquisite Blood for some utility and life gain/drain. I also feel that Defense Grid is a good card but doesn't provide a lot of benefit to your deck as It is. All in all pretty nice deck, Keep up the hard work!

Hello! After checking this out, might you consider:
I really appreciate your inclusion of Mikokoro, Center of the Sea. It's one of my favorite lands.
One of the greatest bits about this site is how many different perspectives and playstyles are available through the community of users.
Good luck in your building!

I have replaced Counterflux and Horn of Greed with An Offer You Can't Refuse and Crawlspace, which lowered this deck's average converted from 3.53 to 3.44. The horn was nice, but this deck does not contain a sufficient number of cards that synergize with it, whereas Crawlspace very much fits the defensive theme of this deck, and Counterflux is an awesome card, but An Offer You Can't Refuse better fits with the political theme of this deck.

Alright let's get dorky. So you want more consistent game and early game. I like your mana ramp and some big boys, I just feel you don't have the early game, you wait for your own board state to get big but only have counter spells to remove threats.
My first list of cards I think can be removed for either lower cost cards or the effects arnt good enough. Urban Evolution to much mana for 3 card draw, the extra land drop isnt enough to justify the mana cost. Seer's Sundial is decent but the recuring cost will slow you down. But with a card like Horn of Greed ,everyone getst the card draw but you should be hitting a land drop every turn realistically. Horn of Greed isnt good with cards that put them onto the battlefield, but playing additional lands will trigger it multiple times for you, free effect for doing what your commander does. it will pay for itself in two turns. Acidic Slime its just slow,I like this better than itWickerbough Elder. Reclamation Sage is better and often the land doesnt matter unless its super competative. or Beast Within will help you with the land removal. meh Stumpsquall Hydra do you really need your CMDR bigger?? slow Sporemound Elder Deep-Fiend meh? like any combos or anything with this? Sharktocrab its cool, but you can only do the effect once, and you dont care about counters, but i see its good for the octopus creature type. Stormtide Leviathan often shoots people in their own foot if you dont have the bottom requirement on your creatures.
lands I dislike,Vivid Creek Vivid Grove tapped and only good for two turns? lands I like are Evolving Wilds Simic Growth Chamber Thornwood Falls Molimo, Maro-Sorcerer better version below. Below link are slow fetches if money is a concern, but you can run them outside your color because they dont have the mana symbol, to bad you can't run other bounce lands. https://www.mtglands.com/main-slowfetches.html https://tappedout.net/mtg-questions/bounce-lands-outside-commanders-color-identity/
Decent cards to replace with Hydra Broodmaster. Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar If you go graveyard recursion consistently she isn't bad Titania, Protector of Argoth if youre using fetches and such. If you do graveyardWorld Shaper The Mending of Dominaria Springbloom Druid early blocker,Harrow Crop Rotation crop R triggers your commander and only costs one. for any land. Zendikar's Roil this doesnt get removed by board clears and makes bigger than 1/1 spores.
Skyshroud Claim any forests. if you do dual shock lands. Fabled Passage if you have the $$$. Myriad Landscape if no $$$. Slippery Karst its good with graveyard synergy but often its cycled unless you need it the first few turns to get to land searches like Cultivate
The best card you should get Azusa, Lost but Seeking Roil Elemental Rapid Hybridization one cost removal of commander worth it. Tatyova, Benthic Druid you need cards that do similar effects as your commander so they cant just shut your deck down with one removal of your CMDR.
To battlefieldWood Elves Farhaven Elf and to hand Sylvan Ranger Ulvenwald Hydra these early game guys get you lands and can chump block, which means you block them with anything big they throw at you, assuming it doesn't have trample
Plenty of more expensive fixes but this is a good start, Let me know if you got some $$$ so I can recommend that. Most these cards should be under 10$ ish.

I would say Sea's Claim or similar. Islandwalk decks that also hate on Field of the Dead etc. Still have some use if ur commander is Thada Adel or something. Or if your commander cares about mono U devition i.e Thassa, God of the Sea
Interdict is a good blue spell given so many comboes, but whirlwind denial and such are much more flexible. Counterspells in general tend to phase each other out because with answers you want the most efficient and flexible version of that effect. Which leads to my next abandoned card Doom Blade.
Then i would say something i miss from magics early history are janky, powerful symmetrical effects on artifacts. I.e. Horn of Greed. These are still played in edh, but wotc abandoned designg them

Just some quick notes!
I'd also comment that Distortion Strike, when well placed could really sink a game for one, if not two players.
If you haven't considered Eldrazi Mimic, that'd be a really nasty card to pair up with your line up.
For retrieval, Scrap Trawler could really do you a favor if artifact retrieval is important for you.
12-Post has been a favorite concept of mine for awhile and I always see mono green Tron as my rival. I think Blue-Post is a pretty cool concept!
Hope the feedback helps!

I'm not sure how you could force an opponent to cast their 2nd spell each turn. Usually you attempt to limit them, not encourage them. I suppose Arcane Melee and Helm of Awakening might be a good place to start?
And, if you do Kindred Discovery naming Knight, you'll draw whenever you get that token, which during your own turn will also satisfy your draw requirement to get even more cards, as well.
