Hello SMASHER101 I have looked at your decklist and have a couple of suggestions for cuts/swaps:)
As for counterspells I think the following could go:
Dismiss, Exclude, Essence Scatter, Faerie Trickery, Logic Knot, and Spell Crumple these counterspells are just not very powerful and seeing as you have so many in your deck cutting six would barely hurt your ability to counter masses of spells.
Dragonlord's Prerogative could go as its ability is a bit underwhelming.
Hope this helps happy tapping:)

This deck looks mighty fine, but I have a few suggestions you might wish to consider. Tempt with Reflections and Tempt with Vengeance are Tempt with Immortality's sister cards and are equally as useful. Fated Infatuation and Fated Conflagration are also worthy considerations. Rite of the Raging Storm is weird but fun. I am also a little concerned about the lack of counter spells in this deck. You play some good cards - you will probably be eating a few counters and/or boardwipes, so you need a back up. Rewind, Dissolve, Unwind, Dismiss and Arcane Denial are good considerations.

As a mono blue player myself (haven't updated my deck in a while here to be honest) I cannot keep myself from recommending some cheap draw like Brainstorm, Ponder, Preordain,Opt, Serum Visions, Gitaxian Probe. Some really good and cheap counterspells are Remand, Memory Lapse, Sage's Dousing (as your commander is a Wizard), Mana Leak, Force Spike, Exclude, Dismiss; just to name a few. Solemn Simulacrum is a bomb in every Commander deck, and Frost Titan is a great finisher. I would cut Walking Ballista.
I could probably write more bit this is what i could come up with right now. Hope to be helpful!

I highly recommend more answers and draw power. This deck has almost no draw power, so it will probably run out of gas pretty quickly. You also don't have many ways of dealing with troublesome cards from your opponent.
For card draw, I recommend:
- Staff of Nin
- The Immortal Sun
- Arch of Orazca
- Phyrexian Arena
- Underworld Connections
- Disciple of Bolas
- Kumena's Awakening
If you don't mind giving cards to your opponent in return for a slight mill effect and cheaper draw power, you can try:
For removal/answers, I recommend:
- Sever the Bloodline
- Curtains' Call
- Go for the Throat
- Murderous Cut
- Victim of Night
There's probably some stuff that could be done better in regards to the mill and kraken themes the deck is going for, but I don't know enough krakens and I don't play mill, so I can't be much help there lol. Those are some things I spotted though.

Dismiss Is also not legal in modern, as well as a good deal of cards in your maybeboard

I like it, but I feel like there's a bit of fluff that could be cut for some more lands or draw power. Wall of Omens has a decent ETB, but beyond that, it doesn't really get anything done. I'm sure there are other creatures with the same if not better ETB, but you could always try cutting it for another land; I think 34 is a bit on the low side. I also think that room could be made for a few more counters... having only one means you'll never have it when you need it. I highly recommend Disallow, Dissolve, Counterspell, and Dismiss. You may or may not want more, it depends on what you're looking to counter. If you just want to stop a combo from going off, just 3-5 is probably fine, but if you want to stop yourself from being boardwiped, I might try to include 6-8. I think getting wiped is a pretty big deal for this deck, as the entire engine is reliant on the creatures, and you have a lower amount than normal and no recursion. One other thing I noticed was the Oath of Teferi. I feel like 5 mana for just the ETB is a bit weak, especially considering the fact that you have only a single planeswalker. To get to the point, I think some of the creatures could be swapped for others with better ETB's or creatures that have more relevant text, and I think some room could be made for maybe 2-4 more lands and a few more counters, probably by removing cards like Oath of Teferi and Reality Acid.
