Counter target spell. If that spell is countered this way, put it on the bottom of its owner's library instead of into that player's graveyard. Put Spell Crumple on the bottom of its owner's library.
Spell Crumple Discussion

I disagree with Vman, I think you could build a fairly competitive mill deck for EDH without it needing to be a cEDH deck. There are a lot of ways to make infinite mana if you want to, but if your are limited by budget, try working a mill shell with a lot of control support. Phenax, God of Deception is definitely the way to go, as it alone makes all your creatures into mill effects. If you run a lot of walls, you could also look at things like Propaganda , Koskun Falls , Crawlspace and Collective Restraint , so yu protect yourself. Black has a lot of wipes, run at least 5-7 of those to keep the board clear, plus the usual suite of counter spells. There's nothing wrong with running a few infinite combos like Hinder / Spell Crumple + Tunnel Vision . The last recommendation is run some effects like Leyline of the Void that cause milled cards to be exiled, as that will keep people running things like eldrazi titans from just reshuffling every few turns.

You really shouldn't be running either. Both are bad cards. Maybe they belong in Phenax, God of Deception , but that's about the only scenario I can imagine. In any other case Counterspell , Swan Song , Arcane Denial , Negate , Countersquall , Disallow , Dissipate , Sinister Sabotage , Dissolve , Forbid , Spell Crumple , Void Shatter , Wizard's Retort , Dream Fracture , Admiral's Order , and Dream Fracture should all be in a UB deck before the milling counters even enter the conversation.

I really like some of your ideas to produce mana and will be incorporating them into my version. It's Mizzix in the Mix if you would like to look and see if my ideas work for you.
I went more "all in" on the experience counters and have found that colored mana is at a premium. Therefore, I changed my counter spells from things like Counterflux, Dissipate, or Spell Crumple to things like Condescend, Power Sink, or Syncopate. That way I only need one blue open and I always get an experience counter. Mindswipe gives added burn value, and I like Spell Burst over Forbid as the game lock.
I also tried to replace creatures with spells where possible, so Archaeomancer turned into Mystic Retrieval and Recall, and Lunar Mystic turned into Whispers of the Muse. I also found that effects like Guttersnipe and Electrostatic Field didn't work as well for me as just having another burn spell. This may just personal style though.
Blasphemous Act takes out Mizzix with everything else. You could try Bonfire of the Damned, Sudden Demise, or even Rolling Thunder for some board control. Fanning the Flames looks even better in your list than mine I think.
You are right about there being a problem if Mizzix gets too expensive. I added Inexorable Tide to keep the experience counters coming even with Mizzix in the Command Zone. That allows you to just set up for one big turn where you recast him and win.

Ya need more lands, at least 35 if not more. Also cut artifact ramp like Gilded Lotus and Thran Dynamo. You're in green, you can get some wild green ramp. Rampant Growth Farseek Kodama's Reach Search for Tomorrow You also have Tunnel vision in there, probably don't need since it's not really a mill deck, but you didn't include Spell Crumple and Hinder. I'm also not a fan of the "Counter target spell unless they pay x" spells. Hinder and Crumple are much better, even without tunnel vision. You also may have too many counterspells. Essence Scatter also isn't great for you in edh. I'm not a huge fan of Cryptic Annelid, Cartouche of Knowledge, Elixir of Immortality. Some good removal Beast Within Krosan Grip, Pongify
Some fun stuff to add:
Chaos Wand - Can trigger Rashmi to cast 2 spells for 4 mana
Trygon Predator - Fly boi with removal
terastadon - Big boi with removal
Draining Whelk - Might be on theme for you. Get a big boi and counter a spell. Kinda expensive though

Really like what you have going on here, just a few things:
Memory Jar is a really good temporary wheel effect, pretty surprised not to see it here
Why no Wheel and Deal?

I like the theme overall I recommend Command Beacon, Expedition Map, Counterspell (or similar to Swan Song Hinder Dissipate Spell Crumple Dismiss) Any way to keep your commander alive as the theme relies heavily on her

Hello SMASHER101 I have looked at your decklist and have a couple of suggestions for cuts/swaps:)
As for counterspells I think the following could go:
Dismiss, Exclude, Essence Scatter, Faerie Trickery, Logic Knot, and Spell Crumple these counterspells are just not very powerful and seeing as you have so many in your deck cutting six would barely hurt your ability to counter masses of spells.
Dragonlord's Prerogative could go as its ability is a bit underwhelming.
Hope this helps happy tapping:)
