I love mill, I love people playing mill. I went overboard on my own mill deck -Mission Brief Trap. but there are a ton of ways to play Mill.
This appears to be a first deck/budget deck, which means that while Flooremoji's suggestions are very powerful, they're likely not the next step for this deck. You already have Glimpse the Unthinkable , which is a powerhouse but probably want a selection of higher powered budget options. Below is a good selection of the most efficient mill cards that won't break the bank and will allow you to customize the deck to your personal play-style, whether that is control or it is card-burn. You're already using some of these, but any of these would be more efficient than Compelling Argument , Mind Sculpt , Drowned Secrets and Psychic Corrosion .
(Please not that despite what is mentioned above, that crab is not the only mill creature to see some competitive success.)
Best budget mill cards:
The problem with Jace, Memory Adept , Lilliana Vess, Fleet Swallower , Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker , Szadek, Lord of Secrets and The Haunt of Hightower is their casting cost. You need to not be tapped out during your opponents turn anytime on or after turn 4. You want to have Instant speed milling, creature removal available. All these cards require you to go shields down likely without immediately winning the game (in fact, it is impossible for Fleet Swallower to win you the game). This applies to your 4 drop creatures as well, but they, at least, are more likely to be able to be cast in later turns without tapping out.
Your remaining card slots should use your favorite removal spells mixed with card draw and spells to keep you alive.

Have you seen the new The Haunt of Hightower ? Sire Of Insanity can be pretty brutal as well. Necrogen Mists and Bottomless Pit are nice repeated discard, Words of Waste can turn extra draws into discard, and Geier Reach Sanitarium does the same with spare mana.

Thanks everyone. This was originally the Dimir Guild kit and i liked the mill effects so i started upgrading with cards i had.
I had Liliana Vess for her discard and search abilities.
Jace, Memory Adept was for his 0 ability I figure if i could keep him alive for just 2 turns thats 20 cards.
I like Fleet Swallower cause it mills half the library but its so expensive it would be a late game.
Etrata, the Silencer was for creature exile and alternative wincon.
The Haunt of Hightower was for discard and to have a beefy creature for defense.
The other creatures were basically milling but i feel like to actually get them to mill would be to much work.
I definitely want to add Hedron Crab and I'll look into the other suggestions.
This is my first real attempt at playing Blue so I'm still learning how to use the cards. I originally played an Orzhov life game deck. I'll have to readd it on here later.

In Magic Christmas standard you can turn 3 Sorin into The Haunt of Hightower and follow it up next turn with Arterial Flow and +1 Sorin if everything survives the turn then swing for 7/7 Lifelink Deathtouch in the air... with your opponent down 3 cards on turn 4...
I may go buy some Haunts lol.

"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .
One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?
