Thanks for the comment ancientskull.
If you use a flicker trigger on Flickerwisp, you get one trigger back. What I really need is more triggers like Cloudshift that return the flickered card before end of turn. I had Ravenous Chupacabra in my first draft, and just felt that it was too many 4-mana creatures that might be difficult to summon in the early game (with Gonti, Lord of Luxury).
I agree that I could leave all my enchantments in the sideboard and focus on flicker triggers and ETB effects.

I like the idea of replacing Gift of Paradise and Grow from the Ashes with Colossal Majesty, which should give you a lot of added card draw. Wayward Swordtooth would then let you cast any surplus lands and might quickly transform into a big-hitting creature. Prowling Serpopard can actually do a lot in this type of deck if you are playing against a control deck with cards like Essence Scatter, you also want as many triggers as possible for Sarkhan's Unsealing and Colossal Majesty. I prefer Lathliss to Verix, but that may be a personal preference. If you have some, Glorybringer would fit right in.
Finish off with some instant burn, like Lightning Strike

This looks like a fairly solid mono-blue flier deck. Curious Obsession just seems vulnerable in this deck - if you don't attack, it dies. If your enchanted creature dies, Curious Obsession dies, etc. I think that I would tend to play 3 Favorable Winds and 2 Curious Obsession or Aethersphere Harvester.
Yes, I agree with Purple_Mage, any added card draw will add value to this deck. While Walking Ballista adds value to almost any deck, it is not doing too much here, while Nimble Obstructionist would bolster your control package and/or give you an extra card draw in a pinch.

Check out Mill, just Mill copy M where I played around with a few changes to your deck.

The way that I read it, Blink of an Eye, Curator's Ward and Short Sword are all rather weak in this deck and If you particularly want to play them, move them into the sideboard. Ornithopter is an artifact with 0 mana cost that also works as a chump-blocker. Essence Scatter provides some early disruption. Mechanized Production can give you another win condition. I would round out the sideboard with Negate and Unwind. If you have a few Karn, Scion of Urza lying around, they would fit right in, but I wouldn't buy them specially at their current list price.

I love the idea - +1. I would be tempted to replace Fumigate and Cast Out with 2 Gideon's Intervention (just because Fumigate could hurt you or be a dead card in the hand if you have creatures out, but no Shalai, Voice of Plenty). In the same vein, maybe 2 each of Lyra Dawnbringer and Shalai, Voice of Plenty. Shalai can also crew Heart of Kiran

In this deck Draconic Disciple is just a very expensive mana dork, where Llanowar Elves would be far better. The strength of Dragon Egg is in the token that is created if it gets killed, and Arcades, the Strategist really adds no value. Maybe something like Skyship Stalker, which can also be loaded with surplus mana to become a bigger striker, but I like the idea of Helm of the Host, that can copy Lathliss, producing lots of 5/5 fliers each time that you flicker a dragon.

Take a look at Set-up for Slam Dunk Mill (although that is not a budget deck and many of the cards will rotate out in a month or two)

I get the feeling that you need more control cards to protect your mill. You have a lot of creatures for a mono-blue mill deck. I went to the opposite extreme (creatureless) in M19M Mill, making room for cards that negate or disrupt your opponent's game.

Good comment, I looked at Yahenni, which gains +1/+1 when an opponent's creature dies as apposed to Defiant which gets pumped when your creature dies. If you have Grave Pact on the field, this will often amount to the same thing. Authority of the Consuls seems to under-perform in this deck, so why not both....change made

Forebear's Blade and Blanchwood Armor are good enchantments for hexproof creatures. Initially, only Vine Mare is hexproof, but once you get Shalai, Voice of Plenty, you have a selection of hexproof creatures.
I don't know that my / enchantment deck is any better than this, but you could have a look at M19M UG Mill

Decided to add in Jade Guardian as a second boggle, then be slightly more aggressive with my control suite (Syncopate instead of Anticipate). Lost a few enchantments along the way, but the deck should be more consistent.

My version of your deck would be AEthermage's Idea copy M (mainly because it would cost me less than $10 with the cards that I already have)
