Every commander deck should have Sol Ring. Strionic Resonator can copy Atraxas profligerate abilty, allowing you to do it twice per turn. Other suggestions I have are: Hardened Scales, Azor's Elocutors, Give / Take, Festering Mummy, Fuel for the Cause, Spread the Sickness, Blighted Agent, Core Prowler, Corrupted Conscience, Necropede, Pistus Strike, Plague Stinger, Tainted Strike, Viral Drake, Viridian Corrupter, Astral Cornucopia, Deepglow Skate, Banshee's Blade, Chimeric Mass, Darksteel Reactor, Grindclock, Lux Cannon, Umezawa's Jitte.

Well, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice is a better version of Vorel of the Hull Clade. Umezawa's Jitte could be a niche card. There is also Grindclock, Mox Opal, Hadana's Climb Flip, and Managorger Hydra. Maybe look at some Atraxa and other +1 +1 counter decks. Hope this helps.

It looks like you're missing out on some staples of the format, like Sol Ring, Command Tower, and Cyclonic Rift. Sol Ring is a very good mana ramp card, as it can allow you to play something like Swiftfoot Boots on turn 1, or allow you to put out your Grindclock to get counters early. Command Tower is just great mana fixing, and Cyclonic Rift is one of the best blue board wipes in my opinion.
Some other fun cards would be Havengul Lich, Jace's Phantasm, Liliana Vess, and Sepulchral Primordial. And if you aren't using the website EDHREC, I would highly recommend you do. It's a great way to find cards that go well with your commander. I'll link it here: https://edhrec.com/commanders/phenax-god-of-deception. Good luck with your deck!

I am not sure that Grindclock is going to be protected long enough against aggro build that just keep coming. Even if this deck catches someone by surprise, I see a lot of Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek decks that would just pluck this put of your hand and leave you with no win con.
I only used the clock in an EDH Mill deck and with Duskmantle Guildmage combo, but could see it being a tough sell in the Whisk and Oust build.

So while trying to find a super budget deck to play. I came across the idea for a prison deck. Grindclock is an underplayed rare, so I decided to make a deck around it. The plan is to cantrip and find Grindclock and then you wait till your opponent plays a creature. Use cards like Whisk Away or Oust (Grindclock on two). Use similar effects and then milling them out of the opponents deck. Use Storage Matrix to lock them out. I don't have any win cons in mind so I would love suggestions for this deck, thank you for reading and have a nice day.

Cellar Door pretty sweet i could use it to infinite mill someone or get alot of tokens atm im using Grindclock for that im just worried someone somehow will manages to give them self hexproof so i cant mill or damage for the win

Not running Grindclock for flavor purposes alone?
I am displeased, though the deck itself is pretty sweet despite this obvious flaw.
