Mulldrifter seems like a shoe-in.
Deadeye Navigator is very strong.
Duplicant has the removal.
Ephara, God of the Polis can draw you 2-3 extra cards per turn cycle, which is awesome.
Glen Elendra Archmage is a repeatable Negate effect.
Knight of Autumn is an extra Rec sage.
Kiora's Follower can ramp or untap Roon.
Palace Jailer can exile things permanently if you blink him.
Perplexing Chimera is just bat-shit crazy, it messes the game up so much.
Reveillark resurrects people.
Solemn Simulacrum is still good ol' sad robot.
Soul of the Harvest... does its thing.
Sundial of the Infinite can skip the end step, permanently exiling a creature with Roon.
Guardian Project is bonkers.

Cuts that i would do:
More suggestion: Karmic Justice is also good for protection.

Gleeock, yes, Timesifter's been great. I run it in my Jhoira of the Ghitu chaos deck (average CMC: 5.17). I end up taking about half of the extra turns, which helps with suspend hopefully without feeling too oppressive to the rest of the table.
Instead of playing all the extra turn spells and MLD you'd expect to see in Jhoira, I run Perplexing Chimera, Omen Machine, Possibility Storm, and Wild Evocation. My ultimate goal is to cast Eternal Dominion, preferably with Hive Mind in play.

Loving the name and the price tag
Something really cool about this deck is that Thassa bounces a creature that returns under your control, so even stolen creatures will work for you and you get their ETB effects.
For this reason I recommend Perplexing Chimera

Heidar, Rimewind Master is what you are looking for. Don't worry about bouncing your opponent's threats and countering them. Go for broke: Cast Stasis , then on the end-step before your turn, bounce it. Untap and recast it for the lock. Winter Orb and Static Orb also work!
Abuse these cards with other copies like Tradewind Riders or with Aphetto Alchemist effects for more value! Magewright's Stone , Thousand-Year Elixir , Rings of Brighthearth , Illusionist's Bracers , Pemmin's Aura , Freed from the Reel, etc.!

- Reason: This is for test purposes. Trade a morph for a steal effect. Probably a questionable swap, will see how it works out.
Gift of Doom --> Whisperwood Elemental - Reason: Even less morphs I know. Although for 'protection' I feel the Elemental is bettet and more impactful.
Sea Gate Wreckage --> Homeward Path - Reason: Sea Gate Wreckage feels too situational. Homeward Patch could help various spells like Perplexing Chimera or Sudden Substitution .
If I count correctly, this leaves us with 15 morphs only though which is not a lot.
