Wolfrage76 Well in that case you are left with pretty much one option - to make a huge turn. You can do this by replacing the cards I told you with some form of stalling - say bouncing back, Cyclonic Rift, Boomerang that kind of thing or with good old board wipes. You do run some similar spells as well. This is to be done if they target you and you feel very pressured. As for the huge turn it should go like this - step 1 have jhoira on the field. Step 2 at the same time in any given turn (preferably the guy right before you) you suspend the following cards 1-3 big guys (the dream would be Hellkite Charger+Neheb, the Eternal which means infinite attack phases) and a random board wipe. I'd strongly recommend my personal favourite Obliterate for the flavor and usefullness, but you can go with anything you like Blasphemous Act, Star of Extinction, Evacuation etc. Then all you need to do is survive for 4 turns(2 with Paradox Haze until they come online. For this reason you are playing the bounces and counterspells. Then when the suspended cards begin to resolve you stack the board wipe to act first, clear the board, hopefully the lands too with obliterate, then smash in the big guys, attack fact with haste and simply win from there.
As for other replacements, you should try to add card draw to the deck, as its really limited as of now. However good blue draw can be expensive sometimes like Rhystic Study and the red I can think of is counterproductive in your deck Outpost Siege and Vance's Blasting Cannons Flip :S. Look in https://magiccards.info/search.html I always check there first for certain types of mechanics and such when building a deck.
So all in all if you can get the cards I mentioned it should make the deck much better. Hope this was helpful :)

Mirage Mirror's ability doesn't make it change zones and therefore, it's still the same mirror object, except now with copied values. So, if you cast a bounce spell (e.g., Boomerang) targeting Mirage Mirror, boomerang resolves as long as its target (mirror) is still valid (i.e., mirror does not get shroud/hexproof or change zones, for example). Once Mirror becomes a copy of something, it loses the copy ability, so its owner cannot keep activating its ability, unless the owner activates Mirror's ability multiple times while Mirror has not copied anything yet (i.e., keep multiple copy targets on the stack).

One of the important things to remember when playing mill is that your opponent basically starts the game with 53 life instead of 20, since that's how many cards will be in their library to start with.
As such, you want your mill cards to be as cost-effective as possible. Otherwise, you're just playing a really bad version of Burn. One Lightning Bolt is equal to 15% of a person's starting life total (3 out of 20). That's 15% for one mana. Your mill cards should be in the same ballpark.
Curse of the Bloody Tome, on the other hand, is rather inefficient. You're spending three mana to chip away less than 4% of your opponent's "life total" each turn. Curse of the Pierced Heart already does 5% of your opponent's life each turn, for less mana! Nevermind something like Lava Spike doing 4 turns of damage that a Curse of the Bloody Tome would do. Glimpse the Unthinkable is the most cost-effective mill card, so you'll definitely want to splash black.
Archive Trap and Hedron Crab, etc. are great win conditions. But keep in mind--they're win conditions. You still have to pay attention to board state and keep your opponent under control with countermagic and disruption. Otherwise, they'll just race you before you can mill them out.
Since you're in Mono-Blue for the time being, I would build around Sphinx's Tutelage and Elixir of Immortality. Essentially, you're looking to play Sphinx's Tutelage as soon as you can protect it, then spend the rest of the game playing draw-go while keeping your hand full via Visions of Beyond, Opt/Serum Visions (or both), and Thought Scour.
There's 2 examples you should look into that can be built for less than $100:
I'd also look into various Mono-Blue Turns deck lists because they have similar issues and themes Mill runs into:
- Sample using As Foretold
- This list wins via Jace Beleren
- I like this one because it has all 4 copies of Exhaustion and Part the Waterveil
Because you aren't playing the more cost effective mill cards that let you play like a Burn deck, you basically have to stall your opponent out until they die to Sphinx's Tutelage/Jace's Erasure. Exhaustion, Gigadrowse, Mana Leak, Remand, Vapor Snag, Boomerang, and so on are going to be your key pieces. You'll probably want Tormod's Crypt/Ravenous Trap/Relic of Progenitus in your sideboard to deal with Emrakul, the Aeons Torn (and the other Eldrazi titans), along with Dredge and Goryo's Vengeance.

I made a casual mono blue deck once built around Boomerang and similar spells. my closer was a one-of Scourge of Fleets. I called it.."ya gotta bounce bro" lol My all-time favorite kraken however is the one I used in my very first standard deck.Pearl Lake Ancient back in the theros, dragon's, Khan's day when I first learned to play magic at "Bell,Book and Comic's" of Kettering Ohio. Pete has a good crowd of people to learn with. I miss the scry lands and Dissolve, most of all my turn two Omenspeaker. But I don't miss Stoke the Flames one bit. jeskai assendency was brutal back in the day. lol Thanks for reminding me of how it all started tho. so many good times

Super fun and rage inducing Boomerang deck:
Also, if you can think of a color, if any to splash, let me know and why!

That's a solid card though.
The scry effect makes the occasional land bounce of
