Thanks for the kind words JonnyWS2019
Good observation. This deck makes you a target and aggro is on a faster clock. Winds of Rebuke on Scepter helps. Hope that I can double mill them faster than they can swing in. Are you thinking more along the lines of Propaganda/Dissipation Field?
Retraced Image acts as ramp with 20% Snow-Covered Island and 10% Persistent Petitioners. Trusted Advisor and Bruvac the Grandiloquent round out a dozen Advisors to meet the mill requirement. I had 3 playsets but cut 2 for the planeswalkers.

Have you considered using bounce or blink effects such as Trusted Advisor and Thassa, Deep-Dwelling to reuse the Aether Theorist/Thief? Shimmerwing Chimera/Riptide Chimera might be able to accomplish a similar set up with Aether Meltdown. Hope this helps.

Cool idea! +1
Minister of Impediments could be fun in this deck.
Trusted Advisor could also be fun.
Since most of your creatures are small, you could also wreak some havoc with Meekstone . That card will definitely draw some hate tho, so be careful.
Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker could deter some attackers.

You deck has made quite a few changes since the last time I saw it. I must say I like how the deck is coming together.
I would like to know what your thoughts are on replacing one of the signets with a Basalt Monolith . My reasoning is that it by itself allows infinite (albeit colorless) mana with your Dramatic Reversal / Isochron Scepter combo as well as going infinite with the Rings of Brighthearth you already have included.
I would also love to hear your reasoning for including Trusted Advisor . With Damia as your commander, I wonder how often its first ability would be relevant. The second ability seems to me more pertinent, as by recasting one of your cheap advisors you could gain card advantage through cards like Beast Whisperer and Kindred Discovery . Do you think that effect is worth a slot in the deck? If you do, I wonder if Temur Sabertooth could perform that function better. I often include this card in creature-heavy decks as it allows me to return my board in whole or in part to my hand in response to a board wipe being cast. The obvious downsides are that it is not an advisor itself and its ability costs mana to activate as opposed to being a free trigger. Paradoxical Outcome could serve a similar purpose as well as providing additional draw

To keep your theme I've suggested some improvements
Faerie Harbinger - Tutor for the fary you need
Inspired Sprite - Extra Card draw
Mistbind Clique - Basically a one turn time warp - more if you can bounce with effects like Glen Elendra Pranksters
Nightshade Schemers - Since most of your deck is Faerie
Scion of Oona - Faerie lord - the shroud could be beneficial too
Spellstutter Sprite - Counter spell - more if you can bounce with effects like Glen Elendra Pranksters
Sprite Noble - Weaker "Faerie" Lord - most likely to cut
Hypnotic Siren - on theme version of Spirit away but not dead in hand early game
Siren Stormtamer - counter spell
Midnight Banshee - might hurt with all the blue you play but strong against many decks
I would Remove Macabre Waltz, Fill with Fright, Send to Sleep, Wings of Velis Vel, Fear, Phyresis with Glistening Oil (repeatable infect + used as removal in pinch), Psychic Surgery, Sleep Paralysis, Waterknot (your in black use actual removal), Faerie Invaders, Oona's Gatewarden (sorry I know oona's the general but its a weak card) and Dauthi Embrace (I know you said its a win con but most of your creatures are evasive on their own)

You should include Umezawa's Jitte; it's a way for blue to pump after blockers are declared, and it's on flavor.
Mindshrieker is creature that can also pump after blockers; and with cards like Field of Dreams (which I'm probably not going to run because, Oh my Thassa, that card is expensive) or Lantern of Insight, you can guarantee the best option (and it's not limited to one activation per turn snicker).
Go, Blue Aggro!
