I recently noticed that alot of people play "spreading seas" in T2, so I got the idea to constuct merefolk deck around it. I tried it in T2 and it didn't work, and since I already have working T2 decks I decided to try my hand at a format I haven't played yet, so I remodeled it into a merfolk piracy highlander deck. I consists of a mixure of control, draw, mana generation, islandwalk and cancelation cards, and while I am having alot of fun with it, it is not really working/winning. The suggestions I got from other players were helpful somewhere between "scrap it, it's crap" and some constructive critism, and I would like to see if anyone has some good ideas for it. What shoud I add/remove? I'm also fairly unsure about the land/creature/other ratio. What I want to do though is to keep it a mono-blue and stay somewhat true to the general sea theme.

you can try gauntlet of power from time spiral, not a big fan of quicksilver fountain, really a do nothing card but makes you a target, krakens eye seems bad too, harbor serpent, try stuff like minds eye, or teferi, if you are playing mind control effects play treachery, also dismiss is good as a counterspell,

You should really run back to basics.
