Yeah I had thought about counter spells as well too. Something like Mana Leak to counter the Titan then?

Honestly, not bad for cards you had laying around!
For some cheap recommendations:
Both cards cost about 25-30 cents per copy.

Your mana curve is so low that you don't need that much land (or ramp even really). Try swapping out a couple lands (and maybe a signet) for the following: Mentor of the Meek, Abzan Beastmaster, Sylvan Reclamation
Bring your price down, consider some cheap, instant-speed protection for your commander! You're drawing a billion cards anyway, you'll always have the mana to spare and probably will draw into at least one when you need it. I'm thinking of cards like: Blossoming Defense, Simic Charm, Mizzium Skin, Sheltering Light, Gods Willing, Valorous Stance

First off, I like this deck. Clean cut, simple and straightforward. That being said, I feel that it may be just a bit narrow in it's purity. I love the board pump and the cost reduction and how well it synergizes with being unblockable.
I feel that you have too much island giving. You only need one Island on the opp. side to make your entire board unblockable. Drop Spreading Seas, and Sea's Claim for 4x Tideshaper Mystic (spreading seas on a stick) and 2x each of Stoneforge Masterwork, and 2x Mask of Memory or Curiosity for some draw; or even 2x Bident of Thassa if you're finding that 20 lands is too rich for your low-ass curve. XD
Stonybrook Banneret honestly isn't doing anything for you, besides making other copies of himself cheaper. Otherwise, the deck is mostly 1 cost and 2 cost u-devotion creatures. Replace with some counter like Mana Leak or even more merfolk like Cursecatcher to synergize with your bounce effects. You don't really need a more hard counter than that with how fast this deck gets scary. Early game disruption and resource strangling is your real defense here.

even in modern, CA doesn't really fit mill decks as they usually go all out for the mill kill. CA doesn't have evasion of any kind either which really hinders him. if you want to make a deck that allows them to do well, i'd suggest a dimir control deck with lots of cheap hand disruption and counter spells with a few nice finishers with this as one. your discard spells are no longer blanks against empty enemy hands because of the mill option. admittedly there are probably better options but i feel that he is more reasonable in this build than a straight mill deck.
vague list assuming you want budget.
4x Mana Leak
that leaves a few cards to add and you can fill them out to fit your style
if you didn't want this to be budget obviously add snapcasters and fetches and feel free to add more cards like Remand.

Thanks King_marchesa! I am very much looking forward to putting it together:) The reason I am running Mana Leak over Counterspell is that with my manabase it seemed like a safer bet. But it is true that Negate might be a better fit. I will look into the ramp part, I am just a little scared about running too many tap lands.
