Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker is Far too slow. I'd drop the Startled Awake Flips, the Traumatize s are wayyy to slow. How about Compelling Argument and Tome Scour instead. A full four Into the Story is crucial to refill your hand, and maybe a single copy of Treasure Cruise or Dig Through Time is worth it here? Fatal Push is definitely worth it here. Mind Grind is kinda weird. It doesn't tend to work as well as you think it will. Consuming Aberration is not the card for this deck. I'd add in some sweepers, maybe 3 Languish ?

Quicken is in for Merfolk Secretkeeper and Startled Awake Flip but mostly...it just draws. 16 lands does seem low, but I'm running a very similiar build in standard, and that works like a charm :) Sphinx's Tutelage is a great card, but too slow for the deck this'll mill you out in 6 turns max.

I won’t go into as much detail here, but here goes:
1) Traumatize - I love this card so much. It was the card I built around when I built my first real MTG deck. There’s nothing like milling half your opponents deck on turn five (rounded up of course!).
2) Fraying Sanity - This card comes at a close second because of course milling half someone’s deck is fun, but what if you could mill the whole thing in one turn?
4) Hero's Downfall - Because who doesn’t love instant speed planeswalker and creature removal for three mana?
5) Tome Scour - Loved turn one mill five, straight up ruins combo decks.
6) Languish - Some relatively cheap board wiping? Great removal vs. an established token deck boardstate? Hell. Yes.
7) Psychic Corrosion - I love drawing cards. I love drawing cards and having my opponent punished in addition to it.
I look forward to seeing other’s choices!

So, a couple things: 40 lands is too many for this deck, I'd go down to 38 or maybe even 37 because of the new mulligan rule. I'd also work on the balance of mana based on the colors you have in the deck, taking out some Swamps and replacing them with Islands, and maybe trying to find a few more dual lands because you don't really gave too many and having mostly basics will make it easy for you to get color screwed. Maybe a few more artifacts like a Dimir Signet , Sol Ring for obvious reasons, and Fellwar Stone , stuff like that.
It also seems like you're stuck between Faerie tribal and mill. Personally I'd go with mill, because it's probably cheaper. You can take out cards like Final-Sting Faerie , Nectar Faerie , Quickling , Thornwind Faeries , Wasp Lancer , Distant Melody , Bident of Thassa , Violet Pall , and Faerie Tauntings . You could put cards like Jace, Wielder of Mysteries , Fraying Sanity , Jace, Memory Adept , Sire of Stagnation , Hedron Crab (I have one of these that you can use), Lazav, Dimir Mastermind , Notion Thief , and Nemesis of Reason in order to strengthen your mill plan, and if you wanna win with tokens out of nowhere, you can put in Scion of Oona to keep your tokens safe.
I would also put in some more removal, like Murder , Cast Down , Rapid Hybridization , Go for the Throat , Hero's Downfall , or similar cards. I really like the inclusion of cards like Crypt Incursion and Startled Awake Flip, because those are just really cool cards. This deck has potential, I think you made a really solid first draft.

Being slower than regular mill, and currently with no ways to buy yourself time, i think you’ll have a hard time making this work.

Love the advisor theme, might I suggest Intruder Alarm ? It synergizes great with petitioners cause you can tap out, drop one, tap out, repeat. To take out I would probably suggest Traumatize or Startled Awake Flip because in my personal opinion big mill seems too risky, but that just depends on your meta and if you could pull it off successfully that Traumatize would be so sweet.
