Archaeomancer could help you double up on the recursion and let you recur instant and sorcery's as well.

Perpetual Timepiece and Hedron Crab can help you fill up your graveyard in the early game.

Hedron Crab could also be a good way to fill up your graveyard early.

Any deck that runs Thought Scour seems like it can run Scheming Symmetry which draws your card while milling your opponent at instant speed. I've seen it as a 2-of in Latern Control so far (Whir is instant speed, so it looks like most people are preferring it still), and many people in UBx Mill are excited to play with it in conjunction with Hedron Crab & Thought Scour (easy mill) and Archive Trap due to the forced search. For mill go turn 1 fetch Watery Grave play Crab, turn 2 play symmetry, play land to mill opponent then draw your archive trap you searched to the top with a thought scour or Visions of Beyond . There are quite a few applications for the card, and I think it will be interesting to see where it goes in both modern and legacy.

I love mill, I love people playing mill. I went overboard on my own mill deck -Mission Brief Trap. but there are a ton of ways to play Mill.

This appears to be a first deck/budget deck, which means that while Flooremoji's suggestions are very powerful, they're likely not the next step for this deck. You already have Glimpse the Unthinkable , which is a powerhouse but probably want a selection of higher powered budget options. Below is a good selection of the most efficient mill cards that won't break the bank and will allow you to customize the deck to your personal play-style, whether that is control or it is card-burn. You're already using some of these, but any of these would be more efficient than Compelling Argument , Mind Sculpt , Drowned Secrets and Psychic Corrosion .

(Please not that despite what is mentioned above, that crab is not the only mill creature to see some competitive success.)

Best budget mill cards:

The problem with Jace, Memory Adept , Lilliana Vess, Fleet Swallower , Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker , Szadek, Lord of Secrets and The Haunt of Hightower is their casting cost. You need to not be tapped out during your opponents turn anytime on or after turn 4. You want to have Instant speed milling, creature removal available. All these cards require you to go shields down likely without immediately winning the game (in fact, it is impossible for Fleet Swallower to win you the game). This applies to your 4 drop creatures as well, but they, at least, are more likely to be able to be cast in later turns without tapping out.

Your remaining card slots should use your favorite removal spells mixed with card draw and spells to keep you alive.

Ashiok isn’t a pet card in Muldrotha, it’s a beast. I didn’t netdeck my deck too but seems like I hit the nerve. I play only 4 non-permanents and this works totally fine. Started with around 10-11 but I didn’t like that. Milling a sorcery felt like a lost card. So I left only spells with s powerlevel high enough to make it worth using a witness for them. I’ve done more into controlled selfmill like Hedron Crab and Mesmeric Orb as well as some sac outlets and creatures that beg to die like Aura Thief and Mindslicer . It’s a pretty control heavy deck with a few more wincons, left trike out because mike and trike is a boring way to win for me and my playgroup banned instant win combos with 3 cards or less. My combos are more complicated but I don’t aim for a combo win anyways even if it’s possible. Feel free to take a look st my list if you want to.

Oh, I also forgot about Hedron Crab . One of the best self-mill engines in the game! And you can use it against your opponents if you need to.

I think you could also make good use of Eternal Skylord and Grave Titan and Hedron Crab

This may have been in the deck at one point, I don't think I saw it in any of the updates but Hedron Crab and Sidisi, Brood Tyrant could help fill up your graveyard pretty early in the game.
