Without info on a budget it is a bit hard to suggest upgrades. However; as said before you need to lower your mana curve and focus the deck on either landfall or beaters. I would also cut 6 of the lands to go down to 38 and add in much more ramp. Cutting:

6 lands

Terastodon

Elder Deep-Fiend

Verdant Sun's Avatar

Meteor Golem

Sphinx of Uthuun

Scourge of Fleets

Tromokratis

would give you 13 free spots. If you filled those spots with 1 and 2 CMC ramp and cheap removal your games would go much smoother. Personally I'd go with 8 ramp and 5 removal, and here is where what your budget is will matter for choices.

Ramp

Birds of Paradise

Elvish Visionary

Exploration

Fyndhorn Elves

Llanowar Elves

Burgeoning

Wild Growth

Arcane Signet

Devoted Druid

Lotus Cobra

Talisman of Curiosity

Removal

Beast Within

Pongify

Cyclonic Rift

Rapid Hybridization

Negate

Disperse

Brazen Borrower

Boomerang

Divide by Zero

Hello! Thank you so much for commenting and sorry for the delay of my answer!

Jackfrost23, I have been considering Hullbreaker Horror. However, since the deck does not interact during the first 3-4 turns, I really need the first sea monster I cheat into play to be either 1) Hard to deal with (Shroud, Hexproof) or 2) Have an immediate impact on the board (Stormtide Leviathan, for example, prevents my opponent from attacking). I am also considering Gyruda, Doom of Depths, Icebreaker Kraken, Rot-Tide Gargantua and Scourge of Fleets for their ETB effect. However, I feel like Hullbreaker Horror would be too slow before using its ability.

wallisface, it would indeed be a fantastic card! A question I have a hard time answering though is "How many?" and "What do I take out?" Any ideas?

Epicurus on Satoru, the green ninja

A couple evasion creatures that I like to use with Ninjutsu are Soulsworn Spirit and Fogwalker, because of their reusable ETB triggers on top of being unlockable (or, at least hard to block, in the case of Fogwalker).

As for your big creatures, the Eldrazi are all awesome just for having big bodies, but remember that you don't get the "as you cast" triggers when you use Ninjutsu to cheat them onto the battlefield, nor would their attack triggers activate (i.e. Annihilator). So I would limit how many of them you use down to just Kozilek, the Great Distortion, because it has a good activated ability. I'd replace the others with creatures that either have ETB triggers or damage triggers.

I have a running list of creatures I'd like to use for Satoru, but I don't want to name off a million cards. The highlights, though, are:

And even that is a long list, so I apologize. Obviously, Palinchron would be great, even without the combo(s), but you already mentioned that.

Cheers!

Samothrace on Higure, the Still Here

Update: I have removed most of the infinite combos from the deck due to new house rules in my playgroup. While this deck was never scary fast it is very very reliable, with a creature tutor on the commander. To keep things centered on combat, I have removed Deadeye Navigator and Great Whale as well as Peregrine Drake.

I have swapped in Thada Adel, Acquisitor and Scourge of Fleets for Higure targets.

I have also put in a Drift of Phantasms as a means of tutoring for Arcane Adaptation

I love Gyruda, but by adding him, wouldn't it make us remove almost half the deck? only even cmc are allowed, so Fleet Swallower, Junk Winder, Kraken of the Straits, Scourge of Fleets, etc must go?

Great commander, unfortunately he's not the first Sea-Monster Tribal commander. Here are my insights from playing Sea-Monster Tribal for many years (One of my favorite decks):

You don't have enough snow-permanents for Icebreaker Kraken. Either cut him or swap in snow lands. If you keep him in, I'd also recommend going all in and adding Dark Depths/Thespian's Stage, Marit Lage's Slumber and Replicating Ring as a strong synergy package that fit your theme. They can be game-winners.

Unless you add a lot of sac outlets or play in a heavy-sacrifice meta, Biolume Egg  Flip is a dead card in this deck as the only cards that will allow you to flip it is Living Death and Rot-Tide Gargantua.

Scourge of Fleets in my experience is often a dead card that only works if you include a heavy island-swapping package such as Quicksilver Fountain and Stormtide Leviathan. Otherwise it's mostly a token-killer and there are much cheaper token sweepers than 7cmc for that. I tried running that for a while, but found the island-shenanigans slowed the game and made the deck more annoying than fun for players.

Quest for Ula's Temple, as much as I want to love the card and it's flavor, was a huge miss in my deck with 26 sea monsters. It would often take half the game to go online, and was always removed before it did any value. I'd recommend it only if you include a heavy top-deck manipulation packages such as Scroll Rack.

I'd cut the vampire sub-theme, vampires generally don't synergize well with Sea-Monsters.

Neurok Stealthsuit is a straight upgrade to Whispersilk Cloak for protection, and I've tended to find Thassa, God of the Sea and Deepchannel Mentor have more value for unblockable utility.

Some suggested cards: Reef Worm can quickly get out of hand with Stromkirk. Bident of Thassa can put in some real work when you go wide. Kiora Bests the Sea God is instant value that Stromkirk can later take advantage of. Ominous Seas leans in to blue's draw spells and can be activated at instant speed to make some blockers when you need them. Elder Deep-Fiend is good utility. Extract from Darkness is great recursion for your big CMC monsters or for utility from your enemies graveyards. Gift of Doom is perfect protection for your commander as you can throw one of his tokens at it when it's needed.
