Creature — Merfolk Wizard
When Thassa's Oracle enters the battlefield, look at the top X cards of your library, where X is your devotion to blue. Put up to one of them on top of your library and the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order. If X is greater than or equal to the number of cards in your library, you win the game. (Each in the mana costs of permanents you control counts toward your devotion to blue.)

Thassa's Oracle Discussion

Go easy on the blue shrines, especially since the draw from Honden of Seeing Winds is mandatory. Or run some enchantment removal and use it on yourself as needed--getting one extra mana from Sanctum of Fruitful Harvest isn't worth losing the game.
How much have you tested this? Are you regularly at risk for overdrawing, or is this a pre-testing concern?

I'm not certain of what your win condition is either.
Is it just make infinite mana with any combination of Deadeye Navigator + Dockside Extortionist + Pili-Pala + Mana producer ect. ect. And then just draw your deck and win with Thassa's Oracle +Labratory Maniac?
Regardless the deck looks like it has a bunch of fun stuff but the list should be slimmed down to have a bit more of the endgame in mind.
Perhaps some tutors/counterspells if you want to be more competitve? Or large X spells if you want to remain casual? idk.
The deck looks fun tho, hope you have fun with it.

jaymc1130 when did I mention cEDH? The community of EDH players is much wider than simply cEDH of course in cEDH where most decks are running a consultation oracle combo OA will be an instant win combination. In general, I’ve seen more abuse from HB than OA, but that isn’t to say that OA is bad. Rather I am saying that in the wider spectrum of EDH hullbreacher was a bigger issue than opposition agent. If the RC was looking specifically at cEDH I believe that Thassa's Oracle , Demonic Consultation , or Tainted Pact are more likely to see a ban before opposition agent with my money on oracle

So now that Hullbreacher is banned, theres not really a way of being garunteed to shut off opponents for 1 turn after you mill your library so your swans can attack. Isn't it better to include 1 Thassa's Oracle so you can draw all your counter spells and cast it for a win on your turn rather than waiting for a round first with opponent's cards still in play? Is there any way with this current list to win on your turn? Or to be so oppressive that there's literally no way to stop your attack next turn?

First and foremost. That joke about "tooting my Horn " was pure gold. Don't ever change.
I get the synergy with stuff like Maskwood Nexus so I'll look into it for my version as well. My deck is based around getting the draw engine as fast as possible so I took out pieces like this. I guess they are worth looking back into.
I'm liking Cauldron of Souls the more I think about it. Kumena can negate the -1/-1 counters using his own ability to give +1/+1 counters so that's pretty sweet. Also, it is okay if Cauldron of Souls eats up removal because that'll save your other more important enchantments and artifacts. Potentially anyways.
When I went with the Isochron Scepter and Dramatic Reversal combo I took out Intruder Alarm but I did really like it in the previous build. Darting Merfolk definitely makes sense with that kind of combo.
Speaking of Intruder Alarm there is an infinite combo that you can use to draw out your deck, or just draw into something you need. Forbidden Orchard , Intruder Alarm and Kiora's Follower give infinite untaps, three other merfolk is infinite draw, and mana rocks and/or dorks ( Earthcraft / Cryptolith Rite ) is infinite mana as well. This can allow you to win with Thassa's Oracle or Laboratory Maniac . Lastly, Grimoire Thief can also allow you to exile each opponents' library. Food for thought if you want to go that route.
I see you are running Counterspell and Pact of Negation . Personally, I wouldn't run counterspells unless it is a bigger package. It is unlikely that you'll have them when you need them with only running two. I'd recommend taking them out to add more utility and value. Unless you feel like you need more counterspells in which you can add more. It is one of those types of cards (for me) that you are either running a lot or none.
I was asking about the lands because in my build the couple of colorless lands I have can sometimes be a hinderance since merfolk are so blue heavy. I originally ran Back to Basics but have since taken it out since my playgroup just played around it. I've been wanting to add it back in but that is why I still have so many basics in the deck. I never really went back and changed the lands. Thanks for the thought on some utility lands.

Have you thought of Bident of Thassa for the flavour draws? I imagine that you are combat heavy in this deck and it does a great job at getting deeper into your deck for more sea monsters and lands to smash onto the table
Also I noticed that you aren't running anything like Burgeoning or Exploration to grab the sweet sweet extra land drops. I've found that with something like Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait and Teferi's Ageless Insight on board, Burgeoning especially, puts you so far ahead of your opponents that it's hard for them to stop you.
Blue Sun's Zenith is another great way to take advantage of all that extra mana, either drawing yourself or forcing your opponents to draw out.
All of these lend themselves to an alt win-con with the on flavour Thassa's Oracle

Cheerios is an awesome archetype in my opinion. I'm not super well versed in how to build jhiora, but I may have a few suggestions. Thassa's Oracle or Laboratory Maniac could be another finisher for the deck, although you probably have enough to win already. Very surprised not to see Hurkyl's Recall , I feel like the deck could benefit from another one of these effects. Overall, seems strong and can probably be competitive in the right hands.
