Veil of Secrecy
Instant — Arcane
Target creature gains shroud until end of turn and is unblockable this turn.
Splice onto Arcane-Return a blue creature you control to its owner's hand. (As you play an Arcane spell, you may reveal this card from your hand and pay its splice cost. If you do, add this card's effects to that spell.)

Ooo Dovescape is some sweet tech here. I landed a Dovescape once (playing Ink-Treader) and quickly entered my friends' "Books of Grievances". You might like these: Call to Mind, Guile, Unsubstantiate (this would allow you to return rebounded counterspells to your hand, assuming you have another rebounded spell that the counterspell can target first), Failure, Veil of Secrecy, Peer Through Depths, Brainstorm

This is a tricky one, I would seriously consider splashing a third color for access to cards that fetch artifacts like Fabricate but the mana fixing becomes a serious issue. I would happily drop AEther Membrane to do this but a three color deck just sounds inherently unreliable in terms of mana.
I mainly wanted to try to build around Isochron Scepter and my thoughts other than straight burn would be Doom Blade, Geth's Verdict, Mana Leak, Angelsong, Assassin's Trophy, Bile Blight, Commencement of Festivities, Dampen Thought, Dash Hopes, Deflecting Palm, Essence Scatter, Feed the Clan, Growth Spiral, Heroes' Reunion, Increasing Vengeance, Nourish, Raise the Alarm, Redirect, Solidarity of Heroes, Turn to Frog, Twincast, Veil of Secrecy, Whitesun's Passage.
I don't know, it just seems like the scepter could be a really awesome addition to a lot of decks but you would want the scepter plus a fetch for it as well.

I don't see the "Devastating Speed" portion of the deck. You have no 1 drops. An INFECT deck has NO 1 drops. That's not "Devastating Speed", that's derogatory and slow. You need, Need, NEED Glistener Elf. Or at the very least, Blight Mamba.
Instead of using black kill spells, use spells like Distortion Strike or Aqueous Form to get past blockers. You can also use cards like Simic Charm or Apostle's Blessing to get past blockers or defend against trouble creatures. Vines of Vastwood, Apostle's Blessing, Simic Charm, and Veil of Secrecy can do multiple things as well as protecting your creatures. Pendelhaven is an important part of any Infect deck.
Black is just too slow for even a mildly competitive Infect deck, because EVERYTHING is at least 3 mana, which for an Infect deck is WAAY to expensive mana wise.

Greetings user: Catpocolypse!
Thanks for the suggestions.
Before my deck was with this build I played in a more "glass cannon" way. Although my matches were solely against a friend playing Burn / Goblins. I seldom won it, I was convinced that I could not win the race for the win against the Goblins avalanche.
Currently I have not adopted this strategy "glass cannon", but time or other I will bet on it. I will share with you.
Congratulations on your list, I became aware of the Veil of Secrecy, perfect for the final blow.
Once again, thank you.

Have you thought about Lightning Greaves or Veil of Secrecy to help your Persistent Nightmare, and/or provide cover for your Archfiend/Phanstasm's? Perhaps working in some counter spells like Psychic Strike might help too. I also love Talent of the Telepath in a blue mill deck. See my Group Mill Deck for other ideas.
Another interesting idea that fits this deck perfectly would be Haunting Echoes. I've been wanting to find a way to work this into a Mill Deck, but mine relies on them keeping cards in their graveyard to boost my creatures. This would work perfectly with your deck.

No Problem ;) Hope you have fun in this fun format.
Regarding Arcane spells I realized that Veil of Secrecy only works on blue creatures which is why it don't work on Blastoderm. Sorry for the false suggestion.
