Greetings, fellow Phyrexian!
Itachi45, High Counsel of Jin-Gitaxias, coming in for a comment.
I love that you’re going for a nontraditional infect style but because you are, you’re leaving yourself open to opposition in a lot of places.
Since you’re not running green, you don’t have a lot of the protection spells like Blossoming Defense and Vines of Vastwood that normal infect decks run, and so you’ll have to switch to mostly counter spells.
Every good deck in modern runs target removal, and every single one of your creatures aside from phyrexian crusader has no built-in protection. So you’ll find yourself deploying creatures that you can’t stick and having no interaction to stop your opponent.
I’d highly recommend 4 of any hand disruption spell like Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize . Hand disruption spells sort of act like cheap counterspells because they can effectively remove a troublesome spell you couldn’t otherwise deal with. Pair that with 4 of a good counterspell, like Spell Pierce or Negate , or even Dispel , and you’ll find things going much smoother.
Lastly, I’d add in 3 to 4 copies of Inkmoth Nexus just for good measure. You never know when you’ll need to activate it and swing to get that one last point of infect damage in.
If you’re not sure what you would want to take out, just comment back and ask me and I’ll give you my final thoughts!

Metallic Mimic is popular as a 2-of in decks that run him. Faithless Looting comes to mind for sure, could even swap out serum visions. In terms of the sideboard you have access to Spell Snare , Pyroclasm , Tormod's Crypt , maybe a single Rending Volley , Dispel etc.. I got bored and awfully did some math, this guy wants 20-21 lands. Alternatively a 4 drop win con from the depths of the internet, even an anthem, could work. Anyway best of luck seems pretty fun

Sorry for the spam Allergy, but I have a story related to Clyde_Bankstons comment that I just have to share;
I recently played a game that boiled down to me and my Edric vs a friend piloting their Jhoira storm. He imprinted a Dispel onto a scepter hoping to stop me from going off. Next turn I topdecked a Personal Tutor , went for Notorious Throng that ended up winning me the game in the end without the need for me to cast a single instant.
( I play both Personal and Mystical, but this is a sweet corner case I just had to share)

Awfully did the math and I think you'll need 24 lands for this guy. Mainly wanted to say Wall of Omens , Tree of Perdition , and Wall of Tanglecord . But there's tonnes of other stuff too Hedron Crab , Jace's Phantasm , Glimpse the Unthinkable , Crypt Incursion , Mind Funeral , Archive Trap , Visions of Beyond , Manic Scribe . There are cheaper options for answers instead of 2-drop countermagic seeing as this guy isn't purely controlly Condemn , Dismember , Inquisition of Kozilek etc.. For the sideboard you have access to stuff like Dispel , Ratchet Bomb , Tormod's Crypt , Spell Snare etc..
Best of luck mill always looks fun!

If you replace rampant growth / Steve for stable copy-sources like Birds of Paradise , Llanowar Elves , or Elvish Mystic , you could probably cut to 22 lands * bites fist * off-the-charts total CMC but i'm still gonna say it!
Modern is fast... may need a healthy ammount of answers in the mainboard.. Mana Leak , Remand , Spell Snare , perhaps a white splash for cheap cards like x3 Path to Exile , or red for x3 Lightning Bolt , or black for x4 Inquisition of Kozilek .. could even try x2 Fog depending on who you are as a person... x2 Dismember ... 2 man-lands always helps Treetop Village etc.. That's such a cool combo though! Thing in the ice may work too hahah. Phantasmal Image is really expensive but iunno it does exist... In terms of sideboard you have access to stuff like: X2 Dispel , Negate , Tormod's Crypt , x3 Scavenging Ooze , Nature's Claim , x2 Ratchet Bomb , x2 Spellskite etc..
all the x2, x1 etc.. in this comment are actually popular #'s of the card from "commonly played cards in modern" on mtggoldfish (or my own research on how many to run).
Best of luck that is so cool

EDIT: Doubled back after way too many suggestions, all in good cheer!
To me it seems like 2x Dismember could have a home here, even cutting bolt down to a 3-of may proove better (commonly played cards in modern, # played column). I'd like to say 2 more inquizitions, would want to see it T1 after all. In terms of any cuts you'd like to make, i've overheard that a minimum of 20 non-creatures will work for delvers (iunno though). Tormod's Crypt is a good 3-of for a sideboard especially at a GP (I was told to activate it after KCI targets their first non- 0 or 1 mana card in the yard). x2 Smash to Smithereens seems good, x1 Rending Volley , x2 Dispel could be lower-costing than mischief and/or disperse. Best of luck!
