Now for the downside: trying to find room for shifty again! Dont want to cut Reforge the Soul, which is what i replaced him with, the wheel effect is too powerful, and it synergies so well with Eater of the Dead.

Well, I think that your deck is good :)But I'll write smthing. I play Phenax for 2 years. My advices is to play with friends (so it's multi 40hp, ur opponents know ur deck and u know their). I really like playing with graveyards. So Diluvian Primordial is rly strong (u can cast Obliterate from one grave and indestructible from another :) ). Blue leyline is nice too. U can think about something like Bribery/Preators Grasp/Sadistic Sacrament, cos ur opponents can have in decks Ulamogs etc, u can take it and play or just exile it (or u can take Teferi's Protection and def ur self but with those spells u need few others lands with any/opponent mana). And, ofc if u know their decks well, u know what they have in their hands :DBoots with haste are very usefull, especially with Eater of the Dead (TOTALLY MUST HAVE). Look at New blue Gearhulk, Mindcrank and Black Ascension (it's combo, but those cards are good alone). Talent of the Telepath is funny card (u can play Army of the Damned in 4th turn :D) and i love it, but it's soooo rng.Altar of Dementia is great if u control opponent creature (u cast Goad all creatures with Blue Prmiordial from ur opponent grave, attack/mill with them and sacrifice all) or u can def with ur creature, tap for mill and sacrifice. Very, very strong with Consuming Aberration.Well, i dont like Altar of the Brood, pref Mesmeric Orb. Few strong cards: Dimir Doppelganger (Boardwipe. U can mill ur self, use his ability on Eater of the Death and its almost gg :) ). And i dont have Traumatize. Huge aggro-card in multi :/. And think about cards like Phyrexian arena/Thasa for draw :)Thats all, sorry for my sucking english ;)

Oooh an old classic at my table. If you are ok with a bit off broken: Eater of the Dead is a great hidden gem and destroys with Phenax.

Azergyzhoul Eater of the Dead is definitely Phenax's best friend if you've got Lightning Greaves handy and are ready to end the game. Consuming Aberration and Tree of Perdition can both rip out massive chunks of library and life alike. Duskmantle Guildmage can also edge people out quite well once the opening presents itself. Also sometimes the wincon is just their wincon with reanimation cards.

I would also recommend Phenax, God of Deception then you can throw a combo like Intruder Alert! and Undead Alchemist to mill pretty much all the way down. Or the combo I want to believe I created hahaha Freed from the Real and King Macar, the Gold-Cursed to completely swipe their board and mill. Eater of the Dead is a have to as well as Glacial Chasm. I have a bunch more combination cards in my deck that you might get some ideas from. It's pretty unbeatable. With the people I play with anyways. (Again this is using phenax is a commander.)

So, to be clear, Eater of the Dead goes into infinite mill as long as you can exile a creature with Phenax out, right?

@ amh62993 - This deck is horrific!
...bad puns aside, allow me to suggest a few things for your consideration.
Consuming Aberration is a card I think has a place in any Dimir build. Many think it is only relevant in mill decks, but really this beast just minds its own business. Sure, you won't win the game with this as your only mill engine. But you will definitely put your opponents at a disadvantage while you get a huge beater.
The following creatures are part of the Consuming Aberration Fan Club: Sewer Nemesis is the president; Nemesis of Reason is the treasurer; Nighthowler hypes up the group; Guiltfeeder is the jerk that makes fun of people outside the club; Geralf's Mindcrusher is the guy that only comes like twice, never to be seen again.
Phyrexian Revoker is wonderful commander hate (or any creature with an activated ability too good to let happen)
Mindleech Mass is expensive to put down, but that ability...
Void Maw can be a finisher late-game.
Greater Harvester (which honestly feels more like a Demon than a Horror)
And, of course, Phyrexian Librarian
Good luck, and happy deck-teching!

Eater of the Dead with Phenax gives you infinite mill as long as there is a creature in the grave. Fair warning mill from personal experience is more target one person then multiple.
