Thanks TrueTribal for the suggestions! Went ahead and added the suggestions, took out Aberrant Researcher  Flip because it wasnt holding its own weight.

Cool commander and theme - nice list!

Some cards that came to mind that might be helpful to test:

Happy brewing!

How about Aberrant Researcher  Flip? It works with the style of your deck and the flip horror won't get wiped by Thing in the Ice  Flip.

Spell Pierce, Mana Leak and Rune Snag are generally good, pretty cheap counterspells you could use.

I would recommend replacing Aberrant Researcher  Flip with Delver of Secrets if you don't mind the jump in price. Otherwise, you might want to just drop it as its cost is a little high for its impact.

You might want to drop Baral's Expertise as you rarely want to cast a card with it at sorcery speed and without that benefit, it isn't very good.

Going down a couple Rise from the Tides wouldn't hurt as you don't really need to cast it multiple times and drawing it early is just a dead card.

Scourge of Fleets is similar, so you might want to drop it entirely or go down to one.

I also recommend dropping Turn Aside, Supplant Form and Just the Wind.

Adding more Thing in the Ice  Flip would be good if you have some.

You want to drop down to 24 or so islands.

This should get you to around 60 cards.

Ok, a milling Drake Haven would be so dope. Card:Ceremonious Rejection is too specific for my taste. Aberrant Researcher  Flip seems dec for the beatdown plan. I feel like if you have the time to cast Baral's Expertise, you're winning anyway, but I could be wrong.

Just a side note, yea there's not that many Islands, but that's slightly deceptive because Renegade Map and Evolving Wilds tutor them.

I don't really like Engulf the Shore, you are only running 10 islands, sure it's decent against tokens, so I would sideboard 2 or 3, but the more things you want it to hit the less likely it is to work. More counter spells is a good idea, Negate is solid, Card:Ceremonious Rejection? Also good against vehicles (and eldrazi) so I would run it.

It is very high on mana and doesn't hit much but Baral's Expertise well targeted can screw with some strategies and can free cast a Startled Awake  Flip or any other card in the deck.

As a backup plan, if for some reason mill isn't working Aberrant Researcher  Flip can beat down and benefits from instants and sorceries which you have a lot of but it is definitely not a priority.

As for what I was referring to in the hope for a cycle mill card, I was hoping for something like Drake Haven but for mill.
