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.

The only issue I have with pumping Thief is it usually gets killed as soon as it hits the board and with no spells to protect it ( Dive Down , ect.) it dies immediately. Kaya's Ghostform could help with that but it has to survive long enough to get it on.
I wish I had some Dead Man's Chest because I would use that. It will be rotating out soon so I am trying to plan ahead a little too. That's why I pulled my Vraska's Contempt and Psychic Corrosion and Hostage Taker out and looking for a good replacement for Walk the Plank other than Murder .

Honestly, having played against this deck several times, I highly recommend splashing black in this. Only a few black cards such as Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor , with Nekusar, the Mindrazer as the commander. He fits what you're trying to do better, and the deck needs the tutors. That will still keep the mana concentrated, but the deck is not very good otherwise. Wheeling is fine, but the deck only really works well when there are other cards on the board that actually enable the deck. Cards such as Psychic Corrosion and Psychosis Crawler actually make this deck really powerful. You need more of those, and fewer cards like Stranglehold which has nothing to do with what your deck is trying to do. It's a nice card, but that's a meta dependent addition which should be sideboarded and comes last. Everything else needs to work well first. I'll be commenting suggestions shortly.

Now for some effects that trigger when you draw cards, to abuse Zedruu's draw trigger.
Diviner's Wand could help you get more damage through, a surprise flying blocker, and gives you a mana sink.
Hoofprints of the Stag is a Luminarch Ascension that doesn't draw as much aggro.
Jace's Projection could get swull, but would be most useful if you have some more Jaces to use it with.
Speaking of planeswalkers, Teferi, Hero of Dominaria 's ult will allow you to seal the game with Zedruu on the board.
Nezahal, Primal Tide is good for all sorts of reasons. Big attacker/blocker, give you no max hand size, and extra draw power to boot.
Niv-Mizzet, Parun is another choice to increase draw power and spread damage around the board.
Psychic Corrosion is the balls-deep version of Jace's Erasure. It hits everyone, which can be a bad thing with mill in Commander.
The Locust God could go in the deck too. Not for the crazy infinite combos, but just to poop out flying bodies.
Well of Lost Dreams can be used in tandem with Zedruu for even more draw power.
