Split second (As long as this spell is on the stack, players can't play spells or activated abilities that aren't mana abilities.)
Choose target card in a graveyard other than a basic land card. Search its owner's graveyard, hand, and library for all cards with the same name as that card and exile them. Then that player shuffles his or her library.

cplvela0811 Thanks! It took me 3+ years to cave and buy 2 snapcasters, even though they are pretty great. I've been thinking 1 more Ensnaring Bridge might be worth adding, but I don't know if there's enough room for more Snapcaster Mage's. Maybe drop the manic for one more Snap, or the bridge? I don't see this deck ever really getting the delirium trigger, so either would be more efficient.
I've play tested a slightly different version a couple different times now, and it seems to excel against combo decks, but struggles against most others. (Esp. Affinity and Grixis Shadows, due to infect and delve respectively)
frogkill45 Good question, I originally wanted to go for the passive control type matchup, with counterspells and walls. After play-testing though, I've gravitated more towards early mill and using Surgical Extraction and Extirpate as the control aspect. The problem I have with purely active mill, is it tends to burn out of mill about 20 cards short on average, where the passive mill tends to hit about that amount allowing it to finish by about turn 6-7. The deck dies hardcore to a wide early board swinging for lethal before I can empty my hand with Ensnaring Bridge, or get off a game winning life-swing from Crypt Incursion. I ran Supreme Verdict for a while, but the double white requirement tends to make casting it difficult, so I'm considering Damnation or some other black/blue board wipe.
Ultimately, I don't think I want to drop the 4x Hedron Crab nor at least a one-of Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver. Ashiok was my reason for going into mill, it's just too cool a card and such a powerful 3 drop that demands answering. Hedrons are, in my opinion, mandatory for any deck that uses non-combo mill as its wincon. It's just insanely efficient with fetch-lands.

If i do put in 3 Crypt Incursions what would be best to get rid of or sideboard cause right now the deck is running at 63 cards and i don't know if adding more would be wise without removing something. I mainly want to run this as a dimir mill, so i don't know about adding in white. But what about SBing cards like Surgical Extraction, or Extirpate since they can search for the cards that can give me trouble and since this is a mill deck at least one copy of it will end up in the graveyard. I could also either MB or SB a couple of Profane Mementos that can give me a near steady source of health without exiling the creatures in the graveyard before Crypt Incursion can get to them.

Mono blue has a hard time getting around aggro decks, without stuffing it full of cheap bounces, or saving all of your mana for one spell.
My suggestion? You may want to splash white land in your sideboard and put in 3 Holy Day/Ethereal Haze, and 3 Ghostly Prison for decks that go wide. You only have to minimize damage and buy time, so a 3+ cost boardwipe isn't necessary for this deck. You can then out in cards like Open the Armory to help find your Fraying Sanitys, and Path to Exile to not only help with removal, but to help set up a free Trap.
Alternately, you can splash black and go for Darkness, or Murderous Cut. This also opens up more mill potential with cards like Breaking and Mind Funeral and a few other interesting SB choices: Surgical Extraction and Extirpate are popular in mill.
Either way, mono blue probably won't cut it games 2-3 with this deck. You're probably going to have to splash another color.

I'm not sure what price-point you're looking for, but here are a few budget options:
Good luck (and skill) with your brew!

you will lose pretty quickly, so maybe add more creatures?
put in Duskmantle Guildmage.
switch Psychic Strike with a proper mill card ( perhaps Glimpse the Unthinkable) and put in as many fetch lands a possible within budget (but keep basics in the deck so you can fetch them) for Hedron Crab

ToolmasterOfBrainerd When I playtested this, War Tax was very useful. But of course that depends from so many factors. The same is true for Fog Bank but maybe Sun Droplet could help out against creature heavy decks. Do you have experiences with Delver of Secrets Flip? Does this creature support an aggro strategy? I prefer to run black instead of White because of Extirpate and some discard effects but then I have the balancing problem with my mana I think. The good news is, no one in my playgroup play True-Name Nemesis haha. They are mostly playing decks like Ally, Bird or Soldier tribals or ability based decks like undying or with energy counter and I thought that Fog Bank or similar cards could be efficient permanents against such decks.

@Blo Thx for your nice suggestions! Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is defiently a card i need to try amd look how she performs. It could be awesome actually at certain match-ups.
@hungry000 Thx for your suggestions too! Your suggestions are expensive so i made a budget version and now this version with your suggested cards, they are of course better for this deck and modern in general.

Like the deck and upvoted ;)
Small thingy: you added the deck to BG golgari, might want to fix that.
Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim could work here maybe. Has deathtouch and a relevant ability with all the lifelink you have here, to give you some (non)creature removal in case you need it.
