Twincast is a great option you can pair with any instant or sorcery card and then double the effect. You also might find cards like Mind Funeral, Startled Awake  Flip, Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker, Mortivore, and Muddle the Mixture of good value as well, just to name a few.

Heres a list of modern legal Mill spells that I dont think you have listed in your deck.

(Archive Trap pairs well against enemies who are using fetch lands or tutors, you can also control the effect with cards like Ghost Quarter and Field of Ruin)

To make a decent mill deck youll definitely need to splash black as the most efficient cards for mill are Dimir cards.

Youll also want to use Fetch and Shock lands like Watery Grave and Polluted Delta if you want to attempt competitive level play. I would recommend not doing that though because mill is very inefficient against the meta decks in modern and is considered by most to be too slow.

Hope that helps!

Twincast paired with Mind Funeral makes for a pretty nice combo, also some cards that might work well here are Startled Awake  Flip, Mortivore, and Increasing Confusion. I'd recommend taking out a few swamps and replacing them with a few Drowned Catacomb.

Drop Talent of the Telepath (slow), Startled Awake  Flip (slow and expensive), Jace's Mindseeker (doesn't do enough) and Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker (slow and expensive); and put in 4x Glimpse the Unthinkable, and 3x Breaking. Your creatures are mana demanding, make your mill spells max out for the cost.

You may even want to consider dropping Siren Stormtamer for Dispel, Turn Aside or Remand.

Also, Duskmantle Guildmage infinites out with Mindcrank. ;-)

Breaking / Entering is illegal in your deck since it has red on one of the two halfs. Startled Awake  Flip can be a replacement

Knock yourself out! Drop me a link so I can see your version. I don't play Frontier but not sure this will compete with Startled Awake  Flip and the like.

+1. I can dig it. I am not quite sure how I feel about you main boarding Startled Awake  Flip though, seems a bit out-of-theme for this deck.. but if you sideboarded in some Surgical Extractions, then I could totally see it.

So, if you're running mill, NY first question is why you don't have Fraying Sanity it gives creature kill, and Discard mill. It also makes Startled Awake  Flip and Manic Scribe mill for 26, and 6 Respectively
