Here are a few mill/ mill related cards you might want to look into (not sure what your budget is so i'm just gonna throw a bunch out there): Hedron Crab, Jace's Phantasm, Manic Scribe, Visions of Beyond, Glimpse the Unthinkable, Mind Funeral, Archive Trap, Mesmeric Orb

Tap lands like Dismal Backwater or Jwar Isle Refuge can go. Here's some lands you don't have listed that are good in my opinion Sunken Hollow, Watery Grave, Tainted Isle, Sunken Ruins and Ash Barrens.

Tunnel Vision can be a funny combo with things like Junktroller, Hinder, and Spell Crumple.

Dreamborn Muse, Riddlekeeper, Oblivion Sower can be good if you're exiling stuff, Manic Scribe, Crypt Ghast, Mortivore maybe?, Guiltfeeder, Nighthowler, Eater of the Dead, King Macar, the Gold-Cursed, Thousand-Year Elixir, Wight of Precinct Six, Consecrated Sphinx, Arcane Denial, Mirage Mirror can be secretly good, Stolen Goods, Praetor's Grasp and Dream Fracture.

I feel like the defender route can be... alright but with dimir you might as well just have good useful creatures that so happen to have decent toughness... also I feel like Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, Oona, Queen of the Fae, Thunder Wall, Wall of Spears, Reinforced Bulwark, and Psychic Membrane are either don't fit or you can find something better.

This deck looks more casual or standard oriented but to make it a better modern mill deck I would recommend Manic Scribe instead of Fleet Swallower, Archive Trap, Glimpse the Unthinkable, and Mesmeric Orb for mill and Visions of Beyond and Crypt Incursion for survival/card draw. Another way of doing it is by running defenders with strong toughness then running Phenax, God of Deception.

Consider Manic Scribe. Its a pretty good mill card.

Psychic Strike, Fraying Sanity, and Manic Scribe would be cool cards for milling. I don't get the use of Perplex.

Tome Scour and Tormod's Crypt I don't like.

You could run more Thought Scours, or/and Crypt Incursion main, or/and a 1-of Snapcaster Mage, or/and Manic Scribe.

I love this commander.

I might suggest more creatures in the mainboard - some mill-themed (e.g. Manic Scribe, some value (e.g. Grave Titan; some big (e.g. Sheoldred, Whispering One, some small (e.g. Jace's Phantasm). Maybe +/- 30 total?

I'm a big fan of Altar of the Brood in The Locust God decks. How might you generate a bunch of tokens in UB or colorless to trigger multiple mill effects each turn? A protected Liliana, the Last Hope, that ultimates might be good. Chasm Skulker is a good squid battery if you can protect it until it has a ton of counters. Abhorrent Overlord might help if your devotion to B is up there. Nuisance Engine and Spawning Pit are okay. Myr Battlesphere comes to mind, too. And maybe a Carrion to use on a giant Consuming Aberration.

Altar can be a pretty narrow win con, but it's easy to recast if you can bring it back to hand.

Have fun playing!

I don't thing your mill package is enough. Both of your enchantments win to slowly, and your opponents will probably kill you before you do the same to them. I would add 3x Jace, Memory Adept to put your opponents on a clock. I would take out Jace's Erasure for several copies of Manic Scribe, Jace's Phantasm, and/or Wall of Frost/Fog Bank to help you stay alive. Hope this helps!
