Simic Locket Discussion

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.

I would suggest replacing Simic Locket with Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner. Both are turn three ramp, but Kiora has better synergy with untapping Ilysian Caryatid or Zaxara. Additionaly, it would provide better card draw.

Merfolk is always a potent tribe, but I do see some incongruous elements that ought to be obviated.
For the basics of a deck, I have some recommendations as for what may be excluded.
Storm the Citadel is a fine card, but it's restrictive and must be done on your turn, with a board state. Removal is best when it can be used both if you're ahead or behind in the game.
Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner only draws cards off of six creatures in the deck, and thence doesn't bolster much. Lords help, but card draw is more applicable when it's not dependent on your board-state. Curious Obsession falls unto the same category.
Spark Double is quite restrictive that doesn't do much on its own. Cloning the commander doesn't do much, either, so a worthy target isn't always available.
I'm not quite sure why Clear the Mind is in here.
Geode Golem doesn't actually cheat the cost of the commander by too much, so perhaps it doesn't merit inclusion.
Tidal Flats is a card selcouth to me, and I don't quite understand its purpose. It can mess up blockers, sometimes. The opponent needs to have no open mana, otherwise, it's useless. That's very easy to play around and I'd prefer just a kill spell.
You have an awful lot of lands in here. A deck-building strategy I adhere to is fewer lands in place of draw spells. They have more utility late-game and can still find lands if need-be.
As for the theme of the deck, I have some potential implementations.
Kiora's Follower is an on-tribe creature that synergizes with the strategy, and ramps. Only great. :)
Stonybrook Banneret spells itself out.
Cytoplast Manipulator is a splendid option for your counters theme.
As for removal, Reality Shift , Krosan Grip , Pongify , Beast Within , Rapid Hybridization , Kenrith's Transformation , Incubation / Incongruity , and Imprisoned in the Moon . Kill spells that strand a commander on the battlefield are always annoying to deal with.
At last, Vigean Graftmage seems perfect.
Alas, welcome to the format, and may you slaughter the opposition with your irriguous fiends. :D
I do have my own list if you wish to peer upon it: The River Anew

I'd cut 3 lands for 3 more pieces of ramp, like a Talisman of Curiosity , Pristine Talisman , Unstable Obelisk , Simic Locket (or any other ravnica card draw rock). Other than that, this deck is pretty great. Maybe put in a Blighted Agent ?

LordVonChimp thanks a bunch for your feedback! I've modified it quite a few times already. What do you think of the latest additions?

I actually prefer the Lockets eg. Simic Locket . They cost more, but are less "fixing" and more like pure "ramp." plus they are a mana sink late game to draw cards.
