As it is your deck looks like it would have issues against high creature decks, or any that can dish out a lot of damage fast. I fixed the same issue with my mill by adding cheep walls with high toughness and a Phenax, God of Deception.

Ya.Nighthowler amazing. low cmc for a high enough power for what it can be. granted, its ability is not as good as Consuming Aberration but the lower cmc does make up for that that combos with Phenax, God of Deception.

Update: I added some artifact hate to my sideboard because a guy in my group is a big fan of Orbs of Warding, and it can be tough to mill him if he manages to get it out without it being countered. March of the Machines serves to turn my small number of artifacts into more mill fuel through Phenax, God of Deception, as well as making any artifacts he controls susceptible to Doom Blade and my other creature removals.

I will suggest Phenax, God of Deception in your main board. He works way too well with Consuming Aberration. I would also consider Tezzeret the Seeker with any mill artifacts. Let's you tutor and/or use them again. One of my favorite combos for a million deck is Spin into Myth + Tunnel Vision . I was able to do that turn 3 by ramping. Much fun

Hi! Been there...took me a while to get my mill deck running. First attempt was Kill Mill, second attempt was Esper Kill Mill. The thing is there are three strategies to mill: Phenax, God of Deception, Sphinx's Tutelage and Glimpse the Unthinkable (if you have the cash...). focus on one and go all in. There is no middle way. You need to mill your opponent faster than he deals damage!!!

Two Decks that might help you:

I will suggest Eater of the Dead + Phenax, God of Deception as a combo. not only that, but Phenax, God of Deception also becomes extrememely powerful with your creature base.

lucal13, Phenax, God of Deception would be a great wincon. However, I don't think that he and Progenitus would get along cramped together behind the wall.
