Nobody has mentioned Wrexial, the Risen Deep. He doesn't mill on his own, but with Islandwalk and Swampwalk he can beat for a lot of commander damage and you can focus your mill spells on the other players for the most part. Throw a SoBM or Trepanation Blade on him and you'll get your milling.

So I built a Proxy deck to get some more realistic playtests, and this is crazy. It has two reliable win conditions that both work in 5-7 turns. There is quite of bit of chance involved with both, but since the aggro fuels the mill it works very consistently. I'm definitely vulnerable to burn and removal, but the hexproof on Invisible Stalker comes in handy since I really only need one attacker to make this work. Being able to stack equip him with Trepanation Blades and hopefully at least 1 Curiosity has been able to mill 30 cards with just one attack. The more colors you are up against the harder it will be, but since it includes the land that gets revealed as part of the mill, it can still slow down three color decks by taking away from their delicate mana pool. Against ramp that grabs land right out of their library it works especially well because the ratio of land to non-land cards is in your favor. Of course Sphinx's Tutelage can be devastating or completely underwhelming, but the unblockable aggro can edge out a win in a few short turns as well. Or not. Just luck of the draw.
So far it has worked exactly the way I want it to. The next step is of course playing it against a real deck. I think it could be great, it certainly is exciting.

I've always liked Trepanation Blade, I just never used it because it was a gamble to pull. Using Drift of Phantasms is perfect though. And I didn't know Sage of Epityr existed, I'll definitely think about it. Thank you so much.

Gitaxian Probe, Think Twice, Serum Visions, or Visions of Beyond for card draw. Maybe you can do Tormented Soul + Trepanation Blade and add a couple Mind Funerals. Might want to add in a few kill spells as well.

Could you add more to your description? Is this budget casual? Did you want to stick with mono blue? Did you want to mill yourself to win? mill your opponent or beat them to death?
I'd add green.
Fuel for your graveyard like Mulch
Also, the next set coming out is revisiting this plane. There should be other cards coming out that will compliment what you want to do. I use mtgsalvation.com for spoilers.
