Jace's Phantasm Discussion

I think your mill strategy should be a turbo fog as a blue/green deck did really well at a recent tournament. To do this you run a lot of fog spells which prevent all combat damage for that turn. This makes them having creatures pretty useless and lets you keep attacking
So to set the deck up I would suggest dropping all the creatures except for Hedron Crab and Jace's Phantasm. Then you get a lot of fog spells- Darkness (its the expensive black surprise) but the rest are really cheap ($ & cmc) Fog, Defend the Hearth, Respite, and Tangle are all good options.
Now you need lots of ways to trigger your crab, so bounce and fetch lands are very good. For budget friendly that means Evolving Wilds, and bounce wise its Golgari Rot Farm and Simic Growth Chamber.
To get the turbo you want a lot of draw spells to help keep your hand full of fogs and to trigger the sphinxs- Remand, Treasure Cruise Visions of Beyond are good options along with maxing out the Thought Scour

I include 4 of Jace's Phantasm in every mill deck I've and it's almost always the best card. I know your not trying to go the creature route but actually it's a lot better than "burn" if you're on a budget (I think of their deck as their life total).
I judge the value of mill cards by dividing by deck size (~50, assuming burn decks must win in 4 turns to be viable) and multiplying by life total (20) to get the equivalent damage.
The main staples in mill like Mind Funeral and Glimpse the Unthinkable are WAY over priced and still don't make up a competitive deck. But Tome Scour works if you're just using it as pump for your creatures.
As you can tell I'm a big fan of mill, and don't really approve of spend over $200 on an uncompetitive deck so I hope I could be helpful. +1

It's partially, as you mentioned, because of supply, but it's also partially because of efficiency. Condemn and Swords to Plowshares are exactly the same excepting a few words, so why is Swords much more expensive? Also, Modern doesn't play as much Delve, sure (but you did forget Murderous Cut and Tasigur, the Golden Fang), but Life from the Loam/dredge decks still have a presence in the format. Additionally, the interaction between a T1 Jace's Phantasm and a T2 Glimpse the Unthinkable is pretty incredible.
