Consider Body Double since their graveyrad (and your eventually) will be plentiful.
I hope my proto-deck helped you too!

Looking at your list, there's two paths you can go:
- Creatures with evasion to abuse Cipher (the worst choice imo)
- Strong spells to take control and mill your opponent (best choice imo)
You can choose control spells to disrupt your opponent game plan (your deck has no interactions with opponent's actions now, it's a real problem).
I advise to use something like Propaganda too, for more protection.
Hope it helps, mate.

Ok if your going to go the mill/discard route:
Mind Funeral, Mind Grind, Twincast, Undercity Informer, Prowess of the Fair, Trepanation Blade, Invisible Stalker, Dimir Infiltrator, Shred Memory, Bloodthrone Vampire, Carrion Feeder, Grinding Station, Genesis Chamber, Shrieking Drake, Hidden Strings, Paranoid Delusions, Psychic Strike, Bojuka Bog, Liliana's Caress, Megrim, Dark Ritual
Thats what I can think of off the top of my head as rough ideas. You have all the standard removal except for Smother and your counterspells are fine even though Arcane Denial can hurt when facing a 49 card deck.

I love the flavor of the deck. It has given me a few ideas for my own B/U EDH Your Bill, From the Mill!- Suggestions needed.
A few ideas though. I feel most of your counters are too situational for EDH, Counters that require "unless they pay X" I have found do not work as well as one might think in EDH due to the length of the games and how much mana players end up with. Though I think Perplex is definitely worth it.
I would consider cutting Mana Leak, Martyr of Frost, and Patron Wizard (if you were to keep one, I would say Patron Wizard). For the cost, Mana Leak can be replaced with Deprive. Martyr of Frost shows your hand to everyone, costs 2, and still isn't a hard counter. Patron Wizard is still a weak counter, but it is renewable, doesn't necessarily give an opponent an advantage and can be done with no mana. Other counters I would suggest for potential replacements are (as I mentioned earlier) Deprive, and Dissolve works well. Normally I would suggest Rewind and Psychic Strike but you don't have many spells to play during opponents turns and don't run much black.
If you do switch out the creatures for extra instant counters, I would consider Elite Arcanist, provides a renewable counterspell or creature/planeswalker removal every turn.
Otherwise, as I said, I like the flavor! +1

Hey dude, sweet deck, and epic description, just a quick question, how did you get the text bigger? And how did you make the text bent sideways? A suggestion: Psychic Strike and Nephalia Drownyard? Psychic Strike being both counterspell and mill. And Nephalia Drownyard cheap (price) and mill, as well as mana.

I'll assume you're running a budget deck so I'll try to stay reasonable in my propositions.
From looking at your list it seems like the only way you can effectively mill out an opponent is through the infitine combo of Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank which, in essence, is a great combo, however, if this is your win-con, I would switch the focus of the deck towards a more control version to then finish off with your combo.
If what you really want is mill, mill, mill then Archive Trap is a must.
Mesmeric Orb is surprisingly good as well.
Crypt Incursion would be better in my opinion than your 3 Elixir of Immortality and if you're adamant on the Elixir of Immortality, play Psychic Spiral instead, it's a big slap in the face of your opponent.
Mind Funeral is a bit of a hit and miss but generally speaking is worth the cost, generally. However, cards like Traumatize being at 5 mana is too expensive and won't even win you the game...It's a card that sounds good, looks good, but in practice isn't worth crap.
Jace's Phantasm is not a bad sideboard card, but I wouldn't run it main deck, it's better against aggro match-up when you need blockers, altough I would personally take a different angle vs aggro decks.
Hedron Crab is also THE BIGGEST milling spell you can have. Ever. I know you're not playing fetches, but a free 3 mill per land drop is not something to pass on, 6 if you fetch into a land, and it's exponential as you add crabs! Those are the kind of crabs you wanna get!!!
If you go mill, your goal is to so quickly remove cards from your opponent's library that he is running out of options, and while removing them from his library, managing his board, because you'll find yourself with next to no board presence for most of many games you'll play.
This is my personal mill deck Who needs cards anyways?, I played it at a 1k PTQ modern today and finished 3-3 with it, if you wanna get some inspiration, look at it and feel free to ask me more questions if you want.

At the moment I know I need to rebuild the deck, and I am currently working on a new version starting from my core components (Ashiok, Finale, Doppelganger, and Intrusion) and building from there. I'll post a link when it's done.
Thoughtseize is not good idea for a turn 1 play against a lot of decks, but I don't want to pay the money or the life for Thoughtseize, so I'm going to run Duress instead. I wish I could afford inquisition, but again, too expensive. I have a very low budget - most of my listed cards I am waiting to rotate before I get them.
I prefer Hero's Downfall to Dismember so I have a way to kill planeswalkers too, but I may be wrong in that choice. Dismember isn't very expensive so I may replace downfall for it. I am also waiting for downfall to rotate before I buy any, so it's not a set card to run.
Disdainful Stroke will never hit. There are too few CMC>3 cards in modern. The cards I need to watch for are all lower than 4, and anything 4 or greater I can counter with Psychic Strike or Countersquall in the next version.
Bile Blight is good, but I decided to run Drown in Sorrow instead for a few reasons. 1: It's CMC=3 so I can search for it with Drift of Phantasms and almost always play it on turn 4. Consistency is good in my world. 2: It's more versatile, as it hits everything on the field and kills all of the threats I worry about such as Goblin Guide, Monastery Swiftspear, Young Pyromancer, Eidolon of the Great Revel, the list goes on. 3: I feel like my 2 mana could better be used on hard removal because even though it will hit a tokens, how many 3 toughness tokens are there?
