Kiora Bests the Sea God Discussion

I am a believer in Cavalier of Dawn if you're looking for interactions to put in the sideboard; I know it's 5cmc but sometimes a game goes long and they have a nonland permanent that NEEDS to go away like Ensnaring Bridge or Kiora Bests the Sea God , not to mention it's ability to remove the format's dominant planeswalkers. I don't like Student of Warfare and Radiant Destiny could be replaced with Sanctuary Lockdown if you got rid of the Kithkin, giving you a soft answer to Emrakul, the Aeons Torn

From Kiora Bests the Sea God 's Gatherer page:
1/24/2020 Nonland permanents target opponent controls that are already tapped when the second chapter ability resolves won’t be tapped again, but they won’t untap during their controller’s next untap step.
1/24/2020 Any nonland permanents that come under the target player’s control after the second chapter ability resolves will untap as normal.

I can see this one going either way, but does the second lore ability of Kiora Bests the Sea God force all of target opponents' nonland permanents to not untap during their next untap phase, or only the permanents it tapped...? Like if half of my opponent's creatures were already tapped when the second lore triggered, do they untap as normal, or are they included in not being able to untap? My gut says it won't matter if they were already tapped, because "they" should be referring to all of their permanents, whether they were tapped or not. But I feel like I need clarity for my playgroup... I can see this coming up.
Thanks in advance! :)

For game ending cards Kiora Bests the Sea God is pretty good and just about wins the game if you can finish the saga. Otherwise just big strong creatures I guess. You have a bunch of permanents that get counters you could try Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider for a finisher. Gets double counters from master biomancer and planeswalker enter with double counters so you could ult right away. Not sure what else I'd have to look

Since you are playing Tatyova, Benthic Druid what about Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait . I dont know if you want the landfall ability in your deck but there are a lot more great inclusions to make in a simic deck. While being on this whole Landfall thingy, Pearl Lake Ancient works then very nice.
I think Reality Shift is not bad but Ravenform should be a better fit here, also there is Rapid Hybridization Since you are already playing big bad creatures what about a good ol' Hadana's Climb Flip Since you are short on removal what about big bad Terastodon , yes it will bounce back with your very flavourfull boardwhipe Whelming Wave but afterall, that's something good, so you can replay it ;) Dont underestimate the value of a Krosan Grip , Splitsecond can catch people on the wrong foot, interrupting combos.
Talking about Whelming Wave why not double down and put a Cyclonic Rift in there aswell? Or for flavour this guy: Kederekt Leviathan . Or something rather stupid: Aethersquall Ancient and since you are most likely to be behind on board i'd slam an Evacuation right in there aswell. And maybe even one River's Rebuke and a Coastal Breach even Inundate should be fine here.
Kodama of the East Tree seems like a good fit here, to cheat out some of the expensive stuff when you cast another one already, also works on lands. Something that works similar would be Imoti, Celebrant of Bounty . More on the topic cheating the mana cost, what about an Elvish Piper or a Quicksilver Amulet
Something protective is always good Thryx, the Sudden Storm
Your carddraw seems to be based on playing creatures with Garruk's Uprising and Elemental Bond (which is better in your deck because of it's Synergy with the tokens from Koma, Cosmos Serpent . But you can double down on that with cards like Guardian Project , Beast Whisperer , and The Great Henge . Colossal Majesty works similar to you but since you are ablte to include very high CMC stuff just slam a Zendikar Resurgent in there aswell.
Now to some more flavour which might not be good, but flavour you know? Kiora Bests the Sea God
and last something very special, you are already very high in CMC, why not double down and play a Keruga, the Macrosage , you can double down and play it as your companion, that'd be fun. You wont miss out on too much. A lot of it is also available in 3CMC like Disallow , Saw It Coming , Simic Locket or Search for Tomorrow Some cards have CMC 3 but you can still do stuff on turn 1 and 2 ;) but that's up to you and how much you want to go down that road of memes and shattered dreams.
Lands looks fine, but since you are able to untapp some lands, maybe use a Lotus Field or atleast a Castle Garenbrig . Since your Devotion can be very high at somepoint Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx but be worth it.

Kiora Bests the Sea God is a very powerful card that you could easily cast and also brings a kraken with it.
