See what you think of Aggro Mechanical M, which is based on your deck.

Skyler1776 I am focusing on mono-blue for this deck. Yes, the deck is not wholly mill, but 1 for a 5/4 flier is just too good to pass up. OK - a mill deck that can get a bit aggro. This is actually one of a set of mono-colour decks with average cmc less than 2 that I have been toying with. Thus Thought Collapse or Didn't Say Please , but not both.
I do like most of your suggestions and already have those cards in Dimir Thieves M, which I occasionally play at an FNM and normally get into the top 8, while having great fun with some rather janky combos.

Hi Skyler1776 - thanks for your thoughts.
I did look at Folio of Fancies and thought it would make a good side-board card for the deck. I like the idea of encouraging your opponents to keep more than 7 cards in hand, then using the last effect to make them mill. This will, however, only work if your opponent is trying to slow the game down anyway - most of the time your opponents will have 3 or less cards in hand if they are playing aggressive decks. To then pay 3 mana to mill 1 or 2 cards is a bit pointless when any 1-drop, with 1 Drowned Secrets on the field will cause them to mill 2. Similarly, Opt provides better value for mana than Folio's second effect. Folio is, however, rather versatile and you have options of using different effects at different times in the game (something you want in the sideboard).
Mu Yanling, Sky Dancer is an interesting option. Strangely, from about 100 M20 boosters that I have opened, I have not drawn one. Her final emblem is a sure game-winner in this deck - but how you get there could be a problem. If I had 1 or 2 in my collection, I would certainly consider a few proliferate triggers alongside Mu Yanling. I am not, however, sufficiently impressed to rush out and buy a few copies.

Prismite , Mana Geode and Gateway Plaza might just add value to Chamber Sentry . I love Steel Overseer in this deck. Other cards that I would consider if you can slow down your opponent enough to be competitive are Sorcerous Spyglass and Bag of Holding .

A good early chump-blocker for this deck like Vampire of the Dire Moon might help you get established.
Kaya's Wrath just seems like you are admitting defeat - kill all your own best creatures for a possible extra turn of play. I would tend to go with something like Aid the Fallen to support your Forever Young and this would simplify your lands.

jubale, I totally agree with everything you say - I just got carried away by a wierd idea for a very janky deck that would be great fun if it's combos ever came off. See what you think of Recycle Mill. As mentioned by RzrBladeMontage, in a mill deck, So Tiny and Ashiok, Dream Render work against each other, so Frogify or Essence Capture tend to come to the fore.

I also really like the idea of playing Venture Deeper (the Merfolk Secretkeeper adventure), summoning Merfolk Secretkeeper then playing Unsummon to bring the card back to your hand to start the cycle again. Clear the Mind could then recycle earlier copies of itself and Unsummon to your library. The combination seems like it could be a whole lot of fun to play - feeding Drowned Secrets with mill triggers, but this complex combo will, unfortunately, tend to play out just a bit too slowly. Any ideas on how to build this sub-theme into something more substantial?

I agree about Ashiok, Dream Render , play 3 in the deck and just use the -1 ability until he dies, then start again. 3 Ashiok and 3 Drowned Secrets seem to be a must for this deck. Sorry, but I would tend to lose God-Eternal Kefnet , Into the Story and Flood of Tears to make room for these 2 cards, dropping your average cmc and focussing more on the early- to mid-game.

Thanks for the comment. I originally had Healer's Hawk in that position prior to ELD. I suppose that they are interchangable, depending on what your opponent is playing. Beloved Princess comes in under the radar and more powerful creatures can't block her, while Healer's Hawk has flying and can avoid some blocks. With so many creatures with flying in the latest set, I went for the effect of Beloved Princess - I suppose that you could have one of these two in your main deck and the other card in the sideboard and exchange them as needed.
