Hey man, nice deck. Perhaps Mindcrank can help you out with that Duskmantle Guildmage for a combo. Tome Scour and Thought Scour to speed things up. Kudos for using Psychic Drain I never seen that, cool card.

its actually intended as waste not storm. i own a reservoir and i actually used to run helm/void combo ages ago but found it diluted my strategy and was boringly easy.. leyline is good on its own but helm has been a dead card otherwise, i also used to run the infinite combo with Mindcrank and Bloodchief Ascension but ascension was too slow.
reservoir is good and all, but wheel storm requires very low storm count to work and i only need 2-4 wheels for lethal, 4 reservoir triggers a turn is pretty low.. but thanks for the suggestions!
usually i dont cast any wheels or nekusar until im about to win, so the chance i feed opponents something like protean hulk os very minimal since i will be chaining wheels, meaning they would only be able to cast instants provided they have the mana on my turn. sometimes there is removal or counterspells that happen but thats exactly why i run my own counters and a bunch of 0-drops so i get more wheel value than opponents. i havent had much failure so far.
nekusar is only bad if played bad, a majority of the game is ramp and control, wheels and nekusar only happen when i can win, since using them as a loot or outside the combo obviously feeds cards. wheels can be dangerous yes but not when they have very limited priority in between wheels
i might go more stax route, Torpor Orb is banned in my playgroup but its a great hose i would run otherwise that has won tons of games, but the Waste Not and Chains of Mephistopheles strategies work quite well so far

I try to stuck away from broken or infinite combos like that; I just added Duskmantle Guildmage for the combo with Mindcrank, but, I'm trying to stay away from lots of surefire combos; I like the randomness and long gameplay of EDH, so combos that can end things really quickly don't appeal too muhh to me.
Startled Awake Flip has been very effective, and pulling it in and out of the graveyard is oh-so-very satisfying. Gonti, Lord of Luxury is also super awesome, and on the same note, Thief of Sanity is just as sweet; I'd say I like thief even more, cuz he puts the rest of the cards in the graveyard, which is much easier to go grab those cards back out of than their library.

carpecanum Thanks for the reminder, that card like that exists. I even have one. It allso have an unreliable synergy with Trepanation Blade, since it can potentially buff some other creatures up to 9 attack. Added and tossed away Vigor Mortis, since it the least useful piece in my mind.
TheNocholas So I need more playtesting with that deck, got it.
Overall, I thought about combining Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank. If I activate guildmages first with mindcrank on the battlefield, and then make anybody mill at least one card, he's dead, right?

I would defiantly run more Jace's Phantasm if you have them. Also, maybe cut some Assassinate. Phantom Monster is just horrible, and I would get rid of that. Maybe some more Mindcrank? I have a non-budget kinda competitive mill deck, which I would never consider buying but if you want some ideas, you can check it our here.

Glad to see you worked those Zombies in! I'm going to second ninjaclevs13's recommendations as far as what to cut and add a couple of my own for your consideration.
Vengeful Pharaoh - He only works from your graveyard, they still get to hit you first, and his mana cost is pretty high
Millstone - Milling two cards for two mana is really sub-par in EDH unless you are going for a total mill theme, and even then there are better mill cards
Mindcrank - Again, mill is only good if it helps you or you if you go all-in on the mill strategy or the infinite combo
To fix your card draw problem, reference this list of black card draw cards. Not all of the cards shown are great, but there are some real winners there. i.e. Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, Phyrexian Arena, etc. Definitely go through and pick some that you like!
