kamarupa Yes I agree that this is an issue about the deck. So some lands that produce blue mana could be in place. When I come to think about it, since I'm going to be milling myself down to the grave, instants and sorceries and the like that can be cast from the grave could be an idea, now that you mentioned unburial rites. This would make it a flashback deck, and it would barely need to be any rearrangements of it. The artifact Altar of the Lost was the first thing that popped into mind, imagine having like 40 cards in the grave where 10+ spells can be cast from there. Also, cards like Smallpox will let me discard cards from the hand in case I have liliana, death's majesty in play so you're effectively paying one mana with smallpox and then using the ability. Other cards you can play from the grave are cards like Deep Analysis, Divine Reckoning, Feeling of Dread and more. Now that I think of it, the more cards that have flashback, the better.
You seem to be seasoned here on tapped since you know some of the tricks of the trade, like the list you mentioned.Choked Estuary might be a good land. Glimpse the Unthinkable could be good as an addition for milling the deck as an addition to traumatize. Since it gets the cards into the grave in the earlier turns.
For how many lands is needed in the deck, I think you are right about it being good having lots of cheap CMC cards that lets you put a wider range of spells. Because then the deck becomes quicker. As you can see, there's already lots of cheap CMC cards for 2 mana in the deck. However, since this deck is all about slowing the game down and making it harder for the opponent to play things and giving him a hard time playing cards, I think this deck is going to be more heavy-control oriented. So the issue with that could be that it falls off in the late-game when you already the have mana. The solution is obviously low mana drops that have a higher flashback cost which has a good effect. What do you think?
Wanted: Cards with; flashback and/or extort, non-basic blue lands

I would say 23-24 lands would be good, you want to be able to play them consistently to help widen the gap that Smallpox makes
This list is pretty similar, it could help with some ideas, the main thing is to throw off the symmetry of the sacrifice spells, either through recursive creatures (you have some of that already) or planeswalkers that dodge it all together, I have a list with a higher budget that's got a similar plan, adding red for some spice and combo potential
Resource denial is sweet, good luck!

Grubbernaut Good call on the Supernatural Stamina, it's perfect! I've been working on this deck for a while, so I'm always looking to improve. Thrull Parasite may not seem like much, but it definitely helps me in pinging multiple opponents and gaining me a life advantage early game. My style is to kind of create targets that annoy my opponents on the board, and the meta I play in is very casual kitchen table game play. As for Geth's Verdict, it's a good card, but it only targets one opponent which is not the direction of the deck.

Also, I'd consider dropping Sign in Blood, Disfigure, Doomblade, and board out Surgical Extraction (it's more of a SB card). I'd also consider using the free space to fill out Liliana, Thoughtseize, other removal like Smallpox, and definitely add Plague Stinger. That way you have an earlier infect, and it has decent evasion.
How frequent does Runechanter's Pike work for you? I like it in theory, but I just don't know how well it could be competitively.

Two suggestions: 1. You can consider a creatureless build so it blanks opponents' removal spells; then bring in creatures Game 2 when they take out their removals. It also makes casting Smallpox better because you'd have no creatures to sacrifice. 2. 18 lands by any measure is a very low land count for anything other than very aggro or very specific combo decks; and it is even riskier when you play things like Smallpox.
