Hi :) I have a similar deck ( Aminatou ) and lately I've been adding/removing some cards using your deck as inspiration.
I'm having a really hard time finding a reason to cut Ixidron, though, and I'm curious about your thoughts. It's similar to a board wipe, but you can blink all your creatures back.
Awesome deck, btw!

ObserverWill Actually, Stormtide was a creature I ran in this deck for a long time. He eventually got cut for some more flavorfully interesting (to me) creatures, but if I was on the lookout for another big, blue beater, he would definitely make the short list. (In fact, now that I'm thinking about Stormtide again, maybe I'll be able to squeeze him in somewhere...)
Now, Ixidron is definitely interesting to me. It would make playing the long game more dynamic, as you can just nullify all your opponents' best creatures when you're finally ready to start the beatdown. I'll definitely consider it! Good thoughts!

I really love the flavor of your deck. Mimeoplasm is one of my favorite creatures and I want to build something similar to yours. I had a couple of thoughts of stuff that might mesh well.
Stormtide Leviathan seems like it would be good as a main body.
Ixidron is something I’ve been thinking about trying. I like the idea of turning mimeoplasm into that to neuter the opponents creatures, at least temporarily.

Flow of Ideas is great card draw in mono-blue. Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep is also a Whelming Wave (although it's a creature and not a good polymorph target), and so is Scourge of Fleets . Volition Reins instead of Lay Claim unless you're super attached to the cycling. Budget options instead of Blightsteel Colossus are Ixidron , Scourge of Fleets , Colossus of Akros , Broodstar , Darksteel Juggernaut or Stormtide Leviathan .

3/21/2021 Update - completed the Ixidron (Porygon) alter. I had some uhhh happy accidents with this one so it's more stylized than the previous two. I'm going to make more stylized alters from here on out, which I think is fitting anyway given the variety of art styles on actual pokemon cards.
Also my girlfriend is helping with alters! She's a much better artist than I. She's working on Ditto and it's looking really good so far.

Mana Maze is kind of a cute stax card that trips up a lot of decks but won't really affect you as morph is colourless on the stack. Cryptolith Rite is antoher great card for Kadena that helps your vanilla 2/2s do a little more.
I would highly suggest taking out Muraganda Petroglyphs . This effect is symmetrical and tokens don't have text on them so they receive this buff which makes it dangerous to play. A lot of green decks have an Avenger of Zendikar lurking somewhere in the 99 that will clean your clock quickly.
Instead of Crystal Shard I suggest you run Cunning Evasion . This lets you play mind games with the opponents by using the combat step as a way to reset your morph creatures. It either makes them unblockable or you get to morph the creature in response to the block being declared which lets you recycle the creature. It also makes Ixidron a headache for opponents to maneuver around as they don't want to put it back in your hand by blocking it but they also don't want to take 10+ damage by not blocking.
