Surgical Extraction

You don't need the full 4 Overgrown Tombs, replace 1-2 of them with Woodland Cemetery or Blooming Marsh. 2-4 more fetchlands would be nice too, they improve your mana and enable revolt on Fatal Push.
Your sideboard could use some graveyard hate, Nihil Spellbomb, Grafdigger's Cage and Surgical Extraction are great options.

Yeah i used it early on in the deck and have found its really not needed. However it is fun with Surgical Extraction against a tron player.

might sideboard out the Mana Tithes, and put the Surgical Extractions and the extra zombie into the mainboard.

Pox Smallpox Duressand Thoughtseize to get him to discard stuff for your Surgical Extraction.

Youre mana curve ends at 4, you dont need 8 mana dorks, and you dont need any if you run Aether Vial (you should run Aether vial).

This will also free up space for your Surgical Extractions.

Finally, id recommend running 4 Path to Exile.

"The perfect mill deck."

Kinda lofty claim for such a fragile wincon.A Seek followed by a Surgical Extraction would certainly stuff a potato in your tailpipe.

I'm just trying to think of what you'd side vs. control. You can beat a pretty big selection of some really heavy hitters. I've also found my version of vamps just molests affinity. Maybe try Surgical Extraction or Extirpate? Combust or Rending Volley?

Oh as I'm writing this you already have surgicals. hmm...

Btw, have you considered Gifted Aetherborn mainboard?

I love the ideas frogkill45. Profane Memento, Ghostly Prison, and Mesmeric Orb are all definitely going in the maybeboard, and hopefully I can find a place for Ghostly Prison in my sideboard because that would be immensely useful. Bontu's Last Reckoning and Damnation are both strong cards but with the cards I have in the sideboard they don't really fit. This deck already does a good job against aggro decks so I don't think I need them. Trapmaker's Snare only fetches me one card while Index can get any of my powerful mill cards to the top of my library for 1 mana cheaper. Leyline of the Void is the only graveyard hate the deck really needs, but I do like the cost reduction of Rest in Peace. Visions of Beyond is a common side-out card for graveyard hate for the exact reason you stated. Seek is in my opinion a bad version of Surgical Extraction in this deck. Seek is only better against emrakul but thats why Leyline of the Void is in the sb. Thanks so much for the suggestion though! Ghostly Prison will be a real help!
