Hello, here are some cards that might prove useful:

Crypt Incursion - Glimpse the Unthinkable - Mind Funeral - Mind Sculpt - Jace's Phantasm obviously, more Hedron Crab

Cards you could remove: 1x Profane Memento - Psychic Intrusion - Reap Intellect - Telemin Performance - Whispering Madness (because the mana cost are too heavy)

Hopes this helps, have fun :)

Manic Scribe seems like a good compliment to Hedron Crab

Scouty I was hoping to use limited Dredge cards as I dont want it to be a dredge deck. Also wanted it to be G/U just because I wanted Laboratory Maniac, Memory's Journey, Hedron Crab, and Thought Scour. I'm not necessarily concerned with it being tier 1 just something fun and unique; While also doing things kind of backward

Definitely need some Polluted Deltas with those Hedron Crabs. Play the Delta, mill with Crab. Activate Delta, mill again. That's two triggers in one turn. For some more budget options with a similar effect, consider Evolving Wilds or Terramorphic Expanse.

I play a land and have Hedron Crab in play, and the 3 card mill goes on the stack. My opponent responds by lightningbolting the crad. Does he still get milled 3 cards?

first of all u must diside if u will go all mill or creatur mill.

And sorry to say Traumatize is too slow for both. Hedron Crab is a must combo it with fetch lands or if u are on budget Evolving Wilds: for the full mill way i can say Mesmeric Orb: Breaking: Curse of the Bloody Tome: Thought Scour: Memory Erosion:the non budget ones Glimpse the Unthinkable: Archive Trap: Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver:u can also go tokens mill but that is a another storry

You and I think a lot alike, Nighthowler is already in the build, I like to fetch for it late game using Fauna Shaman to pull finishers. I used to run Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord in the sideboard as an alternate win condition against lock down and control decks, but so far it's never been viable in my meta.

I definitely run Wild Mongrel, Noose Constrictor, and Dakmor Salvage in my The Gitrog Monster EDH deck, cycling through that deck near infinitely as long as you're running an oldschool Ulamog, Kozilek, or Emracool. But all that business I feel is better suited to EDH. The Rog is just too slow at 5 mana and you need to get all those pieces, it just doesn't cut it for competative modern.

I also used to run the Dakmor Salvage + Raven's Crime combo in this build but I opted for something more proactive rather than limiting against my opponent. Usually my big problem in the mainboard is when I'm outpaced by combo like Ad-nauseam or cheri0s. This is usually solved by going heavy mill to get them to dump their combo pieces, it works a lot since I already run 4 Hedron Crabs, but the problem is consistency and my reliance on crabs. basically I need cheap mill threats 5-8 in my sideboard, and right now Im looking at Archive Trap + Ghost Quarter . the super-nice added bonus to completely switching modes with the sideboard is that after game 1 people usually side in grave hate thanks to the popularity of modern dredge. once they windmill slam a Rest in Peace, you can just help them windmill slam the rest of their deck into exile. it feels real real good.

Instead of Drowned Catacomb, have you considered Dimir Aqueduct to return lands and trigger Hedron Crab a few extra times up to indefinitely by bouncing them off each other? Also, a Phenax, God of Deception couldn't hurt since you'll be sitting around with your comfy fort. He'll mostly just add an extra 2 or more cards at the end of your opponent's turns, but he also creates a win-con with Consuming Aberration if you have 1/2 of their library in their graveyards.
