5/9/2021 Update - received this awesome Naiad of Hidden Coves (Vaporeon) alter from trifecta_alters! I love the use of light, gradient shading, and depth of colors. It's definitely a standout among all my flat one-dimensional works haha.

I think this deck is really well-positioned to become a "draw-go" style control deck that plays instants and flash creatures on others' turns. Pteramander , Augur of Bolas , Brineborn Cutthroat , Threnody Singer , Vodalian Arcanist , Naiad of Hidden Coves , Wavebreak Hippocamp , Murmuring Mystic , and all of your instants (save for the likely too slow 4 mana ones) already fit in such an archetype to at least some extent. The horse fish is particularly insane as a card draw engine, and I'd try to get a playset of it if you can. Stacking them to draw even more cards with Nymris, Oona's Trickster , Baral, Chief of Compliance , Slitherwisp , etc. would also make Ominous Seas more viable, possibly even supplemented by draw payoffs like Chasm Skulker and Nadir Kraken .
For more generally good instants, Counterspell , Mana Leak , Countersquall , Frantic Search , AEtherize , Vapor Snag , Rewind , Cryptic Command , Opt , and Brainstorm (if you're playing with the legacy banned list) are options of varying budgets and power levels for a control deck.
The first cards I'd cut would be anything with suspend or that applies keyword ability counters. I think some amount of counter manipulation would be needed to maximize the value from such cards (with Clockspinning , Jhoira's Timebug , Paradox Haze , and Nikara, Lair Scavenger being a few things that come to mind). Then, I'd cull any sorceries or creatures that would take up all your mana on your own turn for minimal impact. Dead Revels , Frost Lynx , Alirios, Enraptured , and so on.
Sorry it took me a while to submit this after seeing the deck get posted earlier this week. Let me know if you have any questions and good luck with your build!

Just a few changes, i would either take out the 4 of Didn't Say Please or Thought Collapse and replace it with an extra Midnight Clock, 2 Folio of Fancies, and a Thassa, Deep-Dwelling. i would also remove the 3 Naiad of Hidden Coves and replace them with an extra thassa and 2 Ominous Seas. really good deck idea, and an easy +1

What about Naiad of Hidden Coves you mentioned it as possibly being an include on The 99's set review for Theros Beyond Death. Sorry if this has been covered in a previous comment I don't see it in your list (even on the sideboard) or the comments and was curious as to why since it is a blocker that also reduces your cost to win at instant speed on an opponent's turn.

Hey I really like you deck, I think Kalamax seems like an awesome commander. Here are a couple cards that I think would do good in this kind of deck. Wavebreak Hippocamp for some card draw when you’re casting spells on your opponents turn. Rashmi, Eternities Crafter just for some more value and to keep you rolling. Also Naiad of Hidden Coves helps you cast you spells easier. And finally Seedborn Muse which will just help keep you going throughout your opponents turns.
