Surveil 2, then choose an instant or sorcery card in your graveyard. You may cast this card this turn. If that card would be put into your graveyard this turn, exile it instead. (To surveil 2, look at the top two cards of your library, then put any number of them into your graveyard and the rest on top of your library in any order.)

Any reason for not running some number of Drown in the Loch?
Overall I think this looks pretty cool! Part of me wants to say Mission Briefing would be good in here too.

I mean in this kind of deck, hitting 1 sorcery + 1 instant + 1 creature + 1 land in your graveyard should be extremely easy, especially with DRC digging. But more importantly, DRC lets you filter your draws and bin more creatures for you to unearth later. I really think the card does basically everything the deck wants to do, but it is what it is.
Unless your meta is SUPER enchantment heavy, Feed the Swarm mainboard doesn't really make sense.
I'm not sure I understand your reasoning behind not running any basics? It's less about "stopping" Blood Moon and more if you have a single basic island and a single basic swamp in your deck, you can every single card in your deck besides Mission Briefing (97.6% of your nonland cards). Whereas if you don't you can play any basics, you can only cast 31.7% of your nonland cards. That is a huge difference. Also, effects like Field of Ruin and Path to Exile are fairly common.
Anyways I do like the concept of the deck, even if I don't agree with all of your card choices. Any time I can play Dreadhorde Arcanist is a good time.

Personally I think Mission Briefing is probably too slow for this type of deck.
Lack of Fatal Push is a little weird.
Persist is so, so much worse than both Claim and Unearth since all your creatures are 2 or less cmc. I really don't think you need 9 reanimation spells either, so I'd definitely cut this one at the very least.
I highly recommend 4 Dragon's Rage Channeler for another playset of aggressive 3 power one-drop flyers.
Since Delver is more of a tempo deck, Stitcher's Supplier kind of stands out as a card that doesn't do too much. I'd probably cut it.
I see you already have Ledger Shredder in the maybeboard, I'd definitely slot at least 2 in the mainboard that card is crazy strong in this type of deck.
I prefer Consider over Thought Scour since it lets you filter a bit and you don't need to turbo fill your graveyard with Scour since Jace will be flipped easily anyways.
Expressive Iteration is a really powerful card advantage spell, also pretty cheap.
1-2 Spell Pierce is pretty strong in the current meta as well.
Drown in the Loch is a good counterspell/removal spell.

Portent, Crawlspace, Web of Inertia, Dream Tides, War Tax, Glacial Chasm, Monastery Siege, Cryptic Command, Extract, Portcullis, Dissipation Field, Overburden, Archmage Ascension, Frozen Aether, Reins of Power, Rapid Hybridization, Siren's Call, Cyclonic Rift, Mission Briefing, Reality Shift, and Resculpt are just a few you could potentially use. You can very easily go creatureless if you want to. You just have to lean on different win conditions and use cards like Ward of Bones /etc.

I love your support creatures but I feel like you should bring in a Snapcaster Mage. That and Mission Briefing will help to recur counterspells and removal on opponents turn since Kess, Dissident Mage can't do it.
This deck as shown now seems more "turbo" than "control" to me with that Ad Nauseam, Simian Spirit Guide, Grim Monolith etc. If you want to lean in to the turbo storm line consider Baral, Chief of Compliance, Archmage Emeritus and Yawgmoth's Will
Baral, Chief of Compliance + Lotus Petal + Brain Freeze + Underworld Breach = storm off till your own deck is gone and then usually have enough Brain Freeze copys to mill all opponents.
There are ways to make a storm or magecraft win with Archmage Emeritus, Storm-Kiln Artist and Underworld Breach but that would mean raising the curve and running cards that are bad topdeck by themselves.
+1 this is a proper cedh deck! Check out my "cruel control" version of Kess cedh Pox Diamond to see what I mean about the difference between "turbo/storm" and "control". Also I have a pretty extensive maybe board there that might have some spice edhrec won't show you.

Absolutely LOVE it... I have a Jeskai variant and some tools I use that I really like are Mission Briefing to be used as as a Snapcaster Mage value effect and Consider along side it... because im in I use Dragonlord Ojutai for my finisher but I think Iymrith, Desert Doom could be really good to maybe split with your Dragonlord Silumgar.
some juicy Sideboard tech you can consider is Sweltering Suns for a sweeper that cycles if its dead and Narset, Parter of Veils...Alpine Moon/Cleansing Wildfire I guess?
Overall i really love the bones of this build... i wish you success and happy brewing!

the bare minimum you want a mill-card to mill is 8 cards. Any lower and it starts becoming not-worth the resource (card) loss. I’d suggest ditching all of Mind Funeral, Mind Sculpt, and Tome Scour. There are much better options in Maddening Cacophony, Fractured Sanity, and either Archive Trap, Mesmeric Orb or Tasha's Hideous Laughter.
Mill decks typically only want to run Ruin Crab and Hedron Crab as their creatures. Other creatures often slow them down more than help them. I would also suggest investing in some fetchlands to double the crab-triggers.
your land count feels really low and i personally think 22 might be a better number.
Fraying Sanity is a bit of a trap card, in that the first copy is usually only as-good as drawing a single mill spell, and drawing a second copy is usually disastrous - because they do nothing on their own. I could see justifying running a single copy of this card, but never more than that (and really, i’d suggest ditching it).
if you end up using Archive Trap, then you’ll want to run Mission Briefing instead of Snapcaster. I’d also suggest running Field of Ruin to both force a search, and help your crabs.
I think you need some more interaction, namely Fatal Push and/or Drown in the Loch to help keep the board safe. A few copies of Crypt Incursion would do wonders also

What are your thoughts on using Mission Briefing?... counts as a spell along with getting value from the graveyard nicely with things like Play with Fire?
