Creature — Human Wizard
When Overwhelmed Apprentice enters the battlefield, each opponent puts the top two cards of their library into their graveyard. Then you scry 2. (Look at the top two cards of your library, then put any number of them on the bottom of your library and the rest on top in any order.)

Thank you too for your suggestions! You´re absolutely right. A mill deck should hit as hard as possible every single turn. I really love the synergy of Scheming Symmetry in a mill deck in general. It´s a great way to gain advantage over your opponent. The combo with Archive Trap pretty cool too.
I´ll probably keep the Fraying Sanity. Indeed it´s a turn without a lot of milling. But most of the time it´s absolute worth it, because you´re milling twice as much during your next turn and also the opponent will most likely mill himself too. If you need graveyard hate you can easily replace it with Leyline of the Void whilst sideboarding.
This List is also a reminder for myself of which cards belong physically to the deck. So I´ll need to have a look if I can offer a playset of different fetchlands or 2 to 3 Ensnaring Bridge. :D
Avatar of Woe, Consuming Aberration and Overwhelmed Apprentice are the first cards I´ll replace with some of your suggestions. Undead Alchemist and Memory Sluice are cards which I´ll replace too, but I would really recommend to try the combo of 1 or 2 Memory Sluice + Undead Alchemist it makes a lot of fun to get all the tokens if you´re playing against a creature based deck! :D

Brineborn Cutthroat is a good card, but it usually shines in decks where everything in your deck can be played at instant speed, it wouldn't be bad in this deck, but it may not be exactly what you need.
Merfolk Secretkeeper should be one of your go-to card, you could go up to 4 easily. In fact, you could also run Brazen Borrower 4 times for the control aspect, which means you could also run Lucky Clover, and that would give Emry, Lurker of the Loch something relevent to bring back, since I find your other artifact choice questionable. God-Pharaoh's Statue is situational and Wand of Vertebrae is better used in decks that can make use of their top-deck, like when playing Bolas's Citadel, it's not that great for self-milling.
Persistent Petitioners is mediocre at best unless you have 4 advisors in play, and they're your only ones. Normally a deck that runs them will run way more of them, maybe like 20~30 of them since they get around the 4 limits per deck. There's nothing stopping you from running just 4, but they won't accomplish much.
Obviously Jace, Wielder of Mysteries is a must in this deck, but you may want to consider Ashiok, Dream Render too since he can mill 20 of your cards all by himself and still exiles your opponent's graveyard.
I don't think you run enough surveil to run Enhanced Surveillance, and Kiora Bests the Sea God seems out of place since it's usually a finisher in control decks while your plan is just to mill your library. It will rarely be the card you need to stay in control until you're done milling.
Dazzling Lights is pretty underwhelming too, easily something I would take out for any of the extra mentioned above.
Btw I don't mean to sound like "Your deck is all wrong!", it's always nice to see people trying to make decks themselves, it's way too easy to just copy the top meta decks.
Hopefully these suggestions will be helpful.

I get why you put the Green X spells in there, but they'll kill you the same time they kill your opponents, which I don't think you want. Midnight Gond is an easy combo but they're dead cards on their own.
The elixir is barely useful, since you barely have any tap abilities to start with. For that reason, consider changing the mana dorks to mana rocks. Flickering a dork only slows them down, while Brago can flicker rocks, meaning they can be used again.
The counterspells I suggested are better for you because you want to make sure your opponents ETB abilities don't trigger when you flicker them. Once a creature is actually on the field, Roon can handle them.

I think you will be fine at 23 lands because of the amount of scry you have. I have been trying something like this on arena, but only with mill as a secondary win condition, so it's a bit different. Some thoughts:
For me I couldn't survive without Deputy of Detention. It is powerful removal, and you can use it early and then you can bounce it to hit larger targets later in the game.
Forbidding Spirit is a great card to counter aggro. Stops them from building up, and you can bounce it keep them slow. I run 4 of them, but I would at least put a couple in the sideboard.
I know you took the Spark Double out, but it is a versatile card.
I would take out at least 1 maybe 2 of Thassa, Deep-Dwelling because of the legendary status. Even though it's really powerful.
If you get three battlements out (or spark double copies) they can cycle forever and suck in at least one card to bounce infinitely with them. So Charming Prince could be infinite life or Overwhelmed Apprentice would be infinite mill.

I would add Overwhelmed Apprentice and Wall of Lost Thoughts as they both synergize with Thassa's flicker ability. I would cut the Nadir Kraken, it doesn't help the mill plan and you need to focus on milling since you have no way to prolong your game.
