Whenever an opponent discards a card, Megrim deals 2 damage to that player.

Mill is pretty hard in EDH, since there's at least 40 more cards in libraries than normal and you usually have more than one opponent.
Also, most folks hate playing against mill, and then there's those folks who play "graveyard matters" decks like Meren, or Muldrotha that you end up helping.
I would honestly add red and run Nekusar, the Mindrazer as your commander. Almost the same concept, but it mills to your hand, then yard. Plus, you can run cards like Sire Of Insanity , Library of Leng , Black Vise , Skullcage , The Rack , Megrim and whatnot.

I also have a Yidris deck with a wheel subtheme, although it's mostly built around storm. My wheel wincon is looping Wheel of Fate and Elixir of Immortality with Megrim in play, since Wheel is my only non-permanent with CMC<3. That is a problem with running a bunch of super cheap spells, that you'll essentially whiff on good cascade hits to just cantrip when you could be doing something better. A very powerful move I like is giving Yidris double strike, to get double cascade triggers.

This deck is amazing!
These two cards make it a little better.

Hi! I'd glad to see that you've discovered the interaction between Unearth and flicker effects (pretty great, isn't it?)
In terms of discard effects (and the wheels that make Megrim cards great), you might want to consider Nekusar, the Mindrazer . You could build an entirely separate deck dedicated to the effect, or combine the themes and switch between the two generals depending on how you feel.
As for cards to support blinking and Sedris. Nephalia Smuggler is another repeatable blink effect, with the added bonus of being a creature that can be unearthed (although the ability is a bit expensive). Nezahal, Primal Tide provides strong card advantage and also can circumvent the Unearth exile.

I wanted to stay away from as much combo potential as I could, so I left out Necrotic Ooze .
Torment of Hailfire is always a good card, but I wanted to stay more on the creature plan if I can.
Malfegor is awesome, I need to find a cut for him I think.
I stayed away from the Megrim effects as I wanted this to not have a heavy discard focus (you'll see I cleand up a good amount of the discard). The goal is more of play good threats, and evenutally when they and other creatures die, bring out the commander for a second round.

Looks like fun. Just wanted to put my comments in a place you can find them easier.
Not a fan of Ill-Gotten Gains , it allows your opponents to get back the good cards you forced them to discard earlier in the game.
Adds? Necrotic Ooze , because activated abilities happen Angrath, the Flame-Chained , Burglar Rat , and Arterial Flow make your opponents' discards happen Sire Of Insanity and Mindslicer are pretty mean, but at least everyone is stuck in topdeck mode. If you want to be "fair" you could play Awaken the Erstwhile so at least people get some creatures when they discard.
Malfegor , enables your discard and kills stuff.
