There already is, it's called Simic Ascendancy.
Make a wildcard that's 4 color.

I mean...this would be broken with many cards...but yeah... Simic Ascendancy is certainly among them.
Remove two counters of the same type from a noncreature permanent you control: Put a +1/+1 counter on target creature you control.
I'd like to see a Tome/Grimoire

I am waiting for my Walking Ballista to arrive then I will add this card too.
Also Bloom Tender cant produce blue mana (is needed to untap it) what somehow can be essencial in this Deck
Since there are already plenty of Wincons in this deck i dont consider adding Mind Grind
but thanks for all your advices.

Combos that might be a good add for the infinite mana so you don't rely entirely on Zaxara, the Exemplary:
Some wincons to think about:
Helix Pinnacle + infinite mana combo
infinite mana combo + Mind Grind
infinite mana combo + Walking Ballista
If you wanna check out my deck for any help here it is

You want a deterministic loop, which is most of the real "infinite" combos in mtg anyway. Yisan, the Wanderer Bard could definitely be a good commander, but I agree that going for at least a 2 color commander can help you have a lot more variety to work with.
Depending on what types of combos you're interested in (infinite mana, infinite tokens, mill, ETB, etc...) you have a huge array of options open to you. Now with your preferred simic colors; that combo is very conducive to working on infinite mana and draw (these are by no means limitations, just particular strengths).
For example, you could very easily assemble a Peregrine Drake + Deadeye Navigator/Karametra's Acolyte + Umbral Mantle infinite mana engine. Then you can dump that mana into something like Helix Pinnacle, Walking Ballista, Simic Ascendancy.
Now Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy would be extremely strong for this sort of strategy, but he will probably get hit with a lot of hate. So you could always build it around one of the Zegana's or Edric, Spymaster of Trest if you want to play politics while getting draw.

Nice deck. I play a very similar and very mean Kumena deck. I also went back and forth on +1/+1 counters and ultimately did settle on it as I felt that combat damage was the most appropriate win con for merfolk (in part because I also play Legacy Fish). I don’t think assembling and executing your infinite mana combo is more efficient than winning with unblockable +100/+100 merfolk or generating so much card draw that you win with Thassa's Oracle. Both of my options also synergize directly with your commander. +1/+1 counters are accelerated by Doubling Season and Hardened Scales. You can flash in Simic Ascendancy on the end step just before your turn, and with a little finesse, win. With Doubling Season, either Kiora Planeswalker is a nasty surprise as well. Massive card draw comes not only from Seafloor Oracle, but from Bident of Thassa, Coastal Piracy, and now Reconnaissance Mission. My version of this deck replaces your standard countermagic and removal suite with Force of Will, Force of Negation, Mana Drain, and Cyclonic Rift but you probably don’t need to be told that these cards are very good. Gaea's Cradle and Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip are insanely good in merfolk aggro. The only non-merfolk creatures I include (aside from Seahunter) Are Deadeye Navigator, Deepglow Skate, Collector Ouphe, and Vigor. I should say, my merfolk deck is known to beat the seaweed out of many competitive decks. I hope this helps.
