Use the old Innistrad cycle, Increasing Ambition, Increasing Confusion and Increasing Savagery. They are great with the Gravetide.

Increasing Confusion would be a great add. Early game you can get a small amount of mill in, and late game you can mill them for a bunch

FINALLY a Leovold, Emissary of Trest deck in my kind of budget! +1 good sir. I didn't consider infinite mana, good thinking. I'm a big fan, I could really benefit from taking a page out of your book!

My build was aiming for some flashy stuff like Villainous Wealth, Torment of Hailfire, Increasing Confusion and heaps of ramped lands to hold some sway over events. (with the usual limiting of opponents' resources.)

Duskmantle Guildmage, you already have Mindcrank and this makes a solid combo to give mill a little more power.

Undead Alchemist, Dreamborn Muse, and Mesmeric Orb are great for this too. Any time you mill someone and they hit a creature card you get a 2/2 zombie with Alchemist.

Increasing Confusion can be a nice choice sometimes with the flashback

You could also try putting in a reanimator package and have some nice targets to access if you mill yourself.

Hey bigblue32123, I appreciate your suggestions and have been thinking through them for the past month. I agree with you about those one-off spells that mill X - not the best use of my mana, especially in commander when there are so many cards to mill. Those single-use spells don't have a lot of long term value. So I took out Increasing Confusion and Psychic Drain and replaced them with walls (Wall of Frost and Hover Barrier) that can offer some blocking protection and tap with Phenax to mill a decent amount.

I'm still not sold on Intruder Alarm for this particular Phenax build. The potential to prevent my own creatures from untapping (meaning they can't re-tap to mill more with Phenax in play) is just too great and I don't have that many creatures to really abuse Intruder Alarm. I'm also not sure Intruder Alarm combos with Rise of the Dark Realms: I believe all creatures enter the battlefield at once, causing only a single untap trigger on Intruder Alarm (not one untap trigger per creature).

lol BanditRaccoon123. Not sure if you're talking the CMC (not the best, but not the worst), the price tag of the cards (the most expensive cards I already had, or bought before they were so expensive) or the cost of losing your playgroup when you mill them to death. That last one's the toughest.

I appreciate a good Commander deck with a reasonable budget restriction.

Have you considered upgrading Murder to Hero's Downfall? It moves it up a couple bucks but gives you the planeswalker option. Also consider Never // Return (Never)). It has a mode you can cast from the graveyard if you mill or discard it. For that same reason, consider Increasing Confusion and Think Twice, the latter as a possible replacement for Divination.

I would recommend against Skullclamp. With how many +1/+1 effects you have, I think it is unlikely you will be able to use it as a card draw engine.

It is another couple bucks, but going from Dimir Guildgate to Temple of Deceit is an upgrade that I think fits your budget profile. The guildgates are rough to ever draw from the top of your deck, while the Temple at least mitigates your next draw.

If you are running the other deserts, have you considered Ipnu Rivulet as another form of self-mill?

MRDOOM3 on "Where did your deck go?"

A really easy way to end a friendship: Grindstone + Painter's Servant .

I definitely would consider Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver for this deck.

Have you considered Increasing Confusion as another mill spell?

Jace's Phantasm and Visions of Beyond are nice cards as well.
