Too slow you say? I wonder how we can make it faster.
There are three copy effects available to you in Standard:
Standard is pretty fast right now with the best decks winning on turn 4. There are other combos for lower-tiered decks that win on turns 5-6.
In order for you to win with a mill strategy, you can combo to mill their entire deck in one shot, or you can grind them out over a few turns, all the while armed with removal/counterspell disruption in order to not let them get a foothold.
In theory, blue would allow you to do that. You could play a blue control game for some turns until you get the mana you need to copy a couple Startled Awake Flips. By that point, however, you may want to find a faster win condition.
I'm sure the deck is fun to play. I would like to make it fun and even more efficient at what it does!
So, if we multiply the copy effects, and look for other mill effects. The other mill cards in standard:
Cards that exile from the top of the library:
- The Eldrazi that have ingest
- Thought Harvester
- Dimensional Infiltrator
- Oblivion Sower
- Sire of Stagnation
- Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger
They're all pretty slow... So I'm still wondering how it can be made faster.

This looks like it is a Standard deck, but with the format rotation coming up, I can see why you put Modern.
I will make the assumption that this is an Ingest deck, and will suggest that you add in a full playset of Benthic Infiltrators, since they're guaranteed ingest each turn.
I do not believe that there are enough instants/sorceries (only about six) to make Ulamog's Reclaimer fully useful in this deck. I don't know, it may have worked out well when you tested it. I would, however, suggest Wasteland Strangler and Titan's Presence for removal.
If you choose to run Presence, you also can put in Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger (if you're willing to invest more in this deck, and for a good finisher) and Sire of Stagnation (a good late game card).
Another counterspell you can run is Void Shatter, which is basically another version of Spell Shrivel.
My U/B Devoid/Ingest deck can be found here. Who knows? You may find some cards you like!

All the legendary Eldrazi deserve mention too
Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, Emrakul, the Promised End, Hanweir, the Writhing Township, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Kozilek, the Great Distortion, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger and Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre (and Brisela, Voice of Nightmares, but someone already mentioned her)
I feel like mono-blue and mono-green get the fewest of these type of big, many-static-ability creatures, they mostly belong to dragons demons and angels.

I don't know your budget, but I'll try to make suggestions regardless...
- Forest -> Dryad Arbor. This is always a good idea when you are running Gaea's Cradle.
- More fetch lands! The Khans fetches are not that expensive comparatively to some of the stuff you already have in this deck and the zendikar one's are getting reprinted in MM2. I highly suggest you pick some up.
- Eight-and-a-Half-Tails -> Phyrexian Revoker. Better and more targeted protection. It is not tutorable, but Eight-and-a-Half-Tails doesn't do much to begin with.
- Glissa Sunseeker/Darien, King of Kjeldor/Sigarda, Heron's Grace/Melira, Sylvok Outcast/Myojin of Life's Web -> Arbor Elf/Fyndhorn Elves/Llanowar Elves/Priest of Titania/Birds of Paradise. The aforementioned are just underwhelming as legends, you would just be better off with non-legendary mana accelerators in these spots to ramp you into an early Sisay or a meaningful legend.
- Dragonlord Dromoka -> Dosan the Falling Leaf. Strictly better version of Dromoka due to the significantly lower CMC.
- Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant -> Hope of Ghirapur. Your creatures are mostly giant, so what does this card really do for you? To further the point, one of the first creatures you should be tutoring for is Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite anyways! A lockdown effect is going to do you better in this slot.
- Ghostly Prison -> Sanctum Prelate. Ghostly Prison is mostly a control card for strategies with lower creature counts....you have 38 creatures. Again a card that hinders your opponents is going to be better here.
- Untaidake, the Cloud Keeper -> Ancient Tomb. Less restrictive card that serves the same purpose.
- Explore -> Scavenging Ooze. You should not need as much ramp especially with all of the mana elves I suggested previously. Plus mana elves will be much more consistent than the top of your library, so why not another hoser for your opponents? =]
- Burgeoning -> Eldritch Evolution. You should not need both Burgeoning and Explore and IMO Explore is the better card. Eldritch Evolution is a fantastic tutor that will allow you to get your higher end cards into play quicker.
- Privileged Position -> Green Sun's Zenith. Again you should not need both Asceticism and position. Asceticism is the better card IMO. Adding GSZ adds more consistency to the deck as all tutors do.
- Azusa, Lost but Seeking -> Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger. With 35 lands you are almost never going to be able to consistently use Azusa's ability to it's full effect, so why not add one of the best win con's in the game instead - Eldrazi.
- Selvala's Stampede -> Sylvan Library. You should always have either library or top in your EDH deck unless you have some effect that lets you consistently draw an absurd amount of cards. Selvala's stampede effect seems pretty "meh" for it's CMC.
- Yeva, Nature's Herald -> Grasp of Fate. I do not think Yeva's effect is potent enough to warrant being in this list. One of the best utility cards in the format will do nicely in this spot.
Cards that may be out of your budget...
Idk how competitive your meta is but you could include these combo's...
- Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite + Living Plane
- Paradox Engine + Concordant Crossroads/Thousand-Year Elixir + Aetherflux Reservoir + mana creature + Cloudstone Curio
Hope this helps!
