With Dream Trawler being the problem that it is, I wonder if we end up seeing a run on decks utilizing Kaya, Bane of the Dead and Stonecoil Serpent maindeck

So I have been trying to make mill work in recent standard going back to Psychic Corrosion paired with Drowned Secrets. Part of the problem is that unless you get an absolutely nuts draw, it is too slow. You also don't interact well with decks that run Questing Beast (or creatures with trample) since none of your cards can block it, unless you build the Kraken and it's just going to die. However, without additional card draw you're not using the Kraken to it's fullest.

Also, can I ask why you're playing Thassa's Oracle? You aren't milling yourself reliably enough to win with it so it's just a way to look at your cards right now. You would need to decide if you want to be a control deck, mill deck, or self mill deck and then changes can be made to make you more efficient in your goals. Right now it seems like you are trying to do all three and that will cause you problems in most match-ups

Also, I would assume that the Fires decks running black in the sideboard are main decking Fae of Wishes so they know they will be able to reliably cast the cards they don't have mana for.

Make sure fires hits the board, send Fae on an adventure to grab whatever black removal you sideboarded, use said removal. Return Fae to your hand, rinse, repeat.

Would it be better to replace Anticipate and Drawn from Dreams with actual card draw spells? Yes they let you filter, but neither is actual card draw to trigger the Kraken or Trawler. You need Horse Fish out for one to have the desired effect and Leyline + Horse Fish for the other to pump the Kraken. I think you can make this more efficient if you're trying to focus on the Krakens

shadow63 Grafdigger's Cage wouldn't stop me from using Forever Young to remove creatures from my graveyard and get them back into hand for casting.

However there is potential for a mono or even deck using cards like Erebos's Intervention, Tymaret, Chosen from Death, Elspeth's Nightmare, little Ashiok, Agonizing Remorse, the Cage, and/or Kunoros, Hound of Athreos to put a significant hurting on an opponent's graveyard interaction

Not that it is required, but to back up BaneOfLordran, the relevant ruling for how Fires would interact with Elspeth is as follows:

If an effect says that you may cast a card that you couldn’t otherwise cast if you pay an alternative cost (such as the flashback keyword (or in this case Escape)), you have to pay that alternative cost if you use that permission to cast the card. You can’t choose to cast it but cast it without paying its mana cost.

I would also consider Skewer the Critics over Shock only because you shouldn't have a problem dealing damage to your opponent and triggering the Spectacle cost to give you 3 damage instead of 2 for

That's just the type of creature it is, an creature born of Enchantment. It helps to trigger permanents that care about enchantments while still giving you a body on the field
