Needs 3-4 more lands, I think. I'm talking Dismal Backwater, Dimir Guildgate, and gags Submerged Boneyard if nothing else. Better lands than those in no particular order are Dimir Aqueduct, Temple of the False God, Terramorphic Expanse, Myriad Landscape, and Opal Palace.
Also cards you could take out to put those in: Sphinx's Tutelage is better in a card draw based deck than a mill based deck. Maybe it'll get a dozen or so cards every other game, but I don't really think it's quite worth it. Isochron Scepter is good if you can hook it up with one of your half dozen instants that are worth while imprinting with it and it can go infinite w/ Dramatic Reversal and a Sol Ring or something, but I'm not sold. It's an easy two-for-one if an opponent gets rid of it and I feel like there'd be many situations that it's just a dead card in hand if you don't have one of your instants. I've seen how well Tormod's Crypt has worked, but it doesn't do enough to stay in the deck compared to some of your other "graveyard hate" cards. Plus, many of your other cards (literally) get their power from having stuff in your opponent's yard. Evil Twin isn't as bad as he thinks he is. As a removal spell he's slow and I don't see why you need a Clone in here. Body Double is worth it, though because 8/10 times people will have more creatures in their graveyard than on the battlefield against this deck. Disciple of Deceit feels... untrustworthy. If it works, though, by all means keep it. I'm not familiar enough with the deck to know what you would throw away and what you would want to go find. Maybe Crypt Incursion for the sane reason as Toromod's Crypt? Maybe switch it with Profane Memento? Also, maybe Bontu the Glorified could be cut?
Some other cards you could look out for: Altar of the Brood. Mind Sculpt. Siren of the Silent Song (I really like its draw and mill ability). Dinrova Horror, Far / Away, and Reality Shift are underrated removal spells. Also at least two more board wipes. Cyclonic Rift is just as good, if not better, here as it is anywhere else. In Garruk's Wake is pricy, mana-wise, but pretty nice. Nevinyrral's Disk is a classic. Profaner of the Dead works in here. And there are more at least decent black wipes that you could consider playing. And maybe you didn't think of these couple dudes, but they are good for butts and good in general: Disowned Ancestor, Dragon's Eye Savants and the best blocker of all time Fog Bank.

First of all: great deck! I built a kinda budget version for my lokal playgroup (we set up a 20 limit for rares and mythics to keep it fair overall for everybody) and its loads of fun :D

Have you tried throwing in some creatures with changeling? Things like Cairn Wanderer and Shapesharer are still priates after all. To help get damage in for the admiral, Levitation and other evasive anthem effects might be useful. Don't overdo it on tribal support either, you can easily get away with tossing in some better quality creatures, provided the effect they give is worth running them. I agree with the comment above that you may have a hard road ahead to make it work, but you could theoretically win if you play smart and lessen your grip on the tribal theme. I also noticed a lack of Clone type creatures in your deck. Dack's Duplicate Evil Twin Body Double and Quicksilver Gargantuan are all half decent and can either be a pirate on entry or a more serious threat an opponent has. Sleep and other tap everything down effects wilk get damage in for you too.

I may be Unhinged Bolas, borderline Unstable. But even I'm not insane enough to want to work for you. I know how you Grixis folk work with your Cruel Ultimatums and your Dark Intimations if you want a minion try calling up my Evil Twin I'm sure you would get along great.
As for me however I am a proud mage I run wild with the Pack fighting along side All My friends. Bring your reckonings and your Extinctions For when the time comes nature will shield us with a mighty intervention. We will Slice in Twain your places of power and Feast upon your False gifts. Be afraid for soon we will Overcome You and all your Allies .

My dissapointing packs were all from modern masters (my last 7 packs bought were the following in this order).
