4 Hedron Crabs is reasonable. Great card for milling. In a deck with 20 lands, and none of them fetches? Not really worth it. And now we are at it with the lands: For this deck, you have way too few. You have quite a lot of spells at 4+ cmc, and no way of reducing cost. Without mana, you can't play them.
Overall, I'm not really sold on this version of mill. You can't mill with mana you hold back for counterspells, and counterspells that cost 3 (like Dissolve are not good enough in modern (except for Cryptic Command, but that is also more than just counter).
Cards, and good reasons to remove them.
Blood Clock: You don't threaten to kill anyone on life. so they'll take their two damage (or recast their snapcaster mage) and you'll have to find something on your board, that doesn't hurt too much to take back in hand. Reality Acid is good here, but you only have 1 of each.
Darth_Savage suggested to splash white for Narset Transcendent. I think it would be a great idea also for a full set of Supreme Verdict. but more likely, black is a better splash, as the good mill cards are UB.

BlaineTog That's and interesting idea. I think getting the extra blocker to help us get into the late game is definitely something this deck needs.

@Dk1997 Thanks for the suggestions- however, I'm not sure any of them work well with the deck.
The whole point is to run 1-drop evasive creatures (Flying Men, Triton Shorestalker, etc.) and lots of countermagic so that actual threats never hit the board. Mindshrieker and Sigil Tracer cost too much mana, and the Tracer doesn't even have any evasion. Pale Moon doesn't actually do anything relevant for the most part- I may consider running Envelop at some point, however.
Snow-Covered lands with the Scrying Sheets is incredibly slow, and doesn't actually guarantee more draw. I'd rather use the slot for a land that taps for a color, or a creature that will draw me more cards. Glen Elendra Archmage is too slow, I actually just took it out. Gaea's Touch is too inconsistent, especially when I already have Exploration and Burgeoning in here.
Earthcraft isn't terrible- it actually works super well since most of my creatures are 1-drops anyway.

Mindshrieker , Sigil Tracer, Negate idk i'm bored, Hurkyl's Recall is good, side board mostly, as well as Pale Moon, Envelop , also using all snow covered lands plus a Scrying Sheets helps u use that extra mana to help draw your lands, Riptide Laboratory + Glen Elendra Archmage is meh, Gaea's Touch, Lignify, Song of the Dryads, Beast Within,only card i can really suggest would be Earthcraft which allows you to basically play your entire hand by tapping your summoning sickness creatures to play more creatures, ash barrens, blasted landscape , Sword of Feast and Famine, and Sword of Body and Mind

enpc: do you think I should cut Seat of the Synod even if it would be fine to fetch it with Tezzeret the Seeker ? I know it's not a big deal but I just thought of it as another way to get a land on the board.
Now, what do you think about the latest changes? I'm not totally sure about the Sphinx of Uthuun cut, I really liked that card even if I got it rarely in the board, but on the other hand I really needed to lower the curve.

On the point of V-Clique, it wasn't so much so that yo ushould put a copy in your deck (though that isn't a bad move). But the comment was more around the over all design of the deck where Runechanter's Pike is actually your powerhouse piece.Becasue you run a lot of instants/sorceries you will be giving the equiped creature a huge buff. As for etb creatures, it doesn't really matter if you can't recur them as you get a once off effect with an attacker/blocker. So while Augury Owl for example isn't a powerhouse by itself, Owl + Pike is a huge damage output. In the same vein you could consider Mindshrieker.
I would also recommend cutting the Seat of the Synod here - it's just a more vulnerable, less helpful island.

I like the way your deck is going, but to give you relevant feedback some more information on your context and gameplan would be nice.
In general Bower Passage or Rogue's Passage could help you with being unblockable, considering cards like Mindshrieker or buffed up infest-monsters.
If you're not on a budget Gaea's Cradle would have insane synergie with cards like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and your creature count.
Otherwise Kamahl, Fist of Krosa or Elder of Laurels may help you to buff your little critters and Teferi's Veil may protect them from eventual boardwipes.
I am currently building a similar deck as you do, with more emphasis on the political side of Edric and exploiting its card-draw. If you are interested, you can have a look at Edric, the Mastermind - Rogue Tribal EDH. Feedback is always appreciated.
