4 Hedron Crabs is reasonable. Great card for milling. In a deck with 20 lands, and none of them fetches? Not really worth it. And now we are at it with the lands: For this deck, you have way too few. You have quite a lot of spells at 4+ cmc, and no way of reducing cost. Without mana, you can't play them.

Overall, I'm not really sold on this version of mill. You can't mill with mana you hold back for counterspells, and counterspells that cost 3 (like Dissolve are not good enough in modern (except for Cryptic Command, but that is also more than just counter).

Cards, and good reasons to remove them.

  • Echo Mage: 3 mana to cast, 2 level-ups before it does anything. And in response to the second level-up, a Lightning Bolt (which is one of the most played cards in modern) and that was 7 mana wasted.

  • Vanishment, Griptide, and Sweep Away: Exchange for Vapor Snag, for the reasons others have given you.

  • Jace's Mindseeker, Undead Alchemist, and Mindshrieker: too expensive for what they do.

  • Blood Clock: You don't threaten to kill anyone on life. so they'll take their two damage (or recast their snapcaster mage) and you'll have to find something on your board, that doesn't hurt too much to take back in hand. Reality Acid is good here, but you only have 1 of each.

Darth_Savage suggested to splash white for Narset Transcendent. I think it would be a great idea also for a full set of Supreme Verdict. but more likely, black is a better splash, as the good mill cards are UB.

Perhaps instead of Leave in the Dust you could use Disperse or Sweep Away, but otherwise this is a really good deck

I'd probably think about removing the 2 Sweep Away because you have Disperse. If anything you could remove 2 of the Sweep and add 1 or 2 Disperse.

You might want to add in those 2 Torrential Gearhulk's from the sideboard into the mainboard as another win condition too!

marcusacall I appreciate the feedback!! I can't really seem to get into modern personally. I think because it is out of my budget, and way to many sets to keep up with. I do really like Disallow, and Fatal Push. I think I would keep the void shatter though, just because the exile effect is so important in the standard meta. As for the Grasp of Darkness and Sweep Away they are both super awesome cards, and I am actually thinking about taking the Metallurgic Summonings out and putting in more kill and counter. There is nothing more fun than sweeping away an attacking Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and negating him on the way back down, after they've wasted a draw step.

I'd through some low cost destroy monster instants such as Silverstrike or even removal spells Luke Sweep Away Negate is good and all even the Deny Existence but what will you do if they manage to get some beefy SOB's out. Need those spirits are fast and cheap but they can't stand up toward end game. That being said that flash/flying combined with those Stasis Snare can really screw with your opponents tempo I know
