Wrexial, the Risen Deep
Legendary Creature — Kraken
Islandwalk, swampwalk (This creature can't be blocked as long as defending player controls an Island or a Swamp.)
Whenever Wrexial, the Risen Deep deals combat damage to a player, you may cast target instant or sorcery card from that player's graveyard without paying its mana cost. If that card would be put into a graveyard this turn, exile it instead.

Wrexial, the Risen Deep Discussion
1 week ago
I don't normally comment but I see someone else also loves the idea of edh mill :)
IMO in commander spells that are targeted like Fraying Sanity or Curse of the Bloody Tome are worse than global effects like Memory Erosion. It doesn't matter if it's 1v1 commander, but anything in a group setting makes them worse. Stuff like Hedron Crab and Curse of the Bloody Tome can too slow for 100 card decks. You're not guaranteed to play them early and by the time you mill 10 or 20 cards they'll have their commander and some other nonsense to just end the game. Some people play Kozilek, Butcher of Truth so milling them out is impossible without Leyline of the Void
Some cards which might help are Ashen Powder Whispering Madness Soul Manipulation Dissipation Field Quest for Ancient Secrets Avatar of Woe Body Double Consuming Aberration Guiltfeeder Nighthowler Sepulchral Primordial Wrexial, the Risen Deep Entreat the Dead Wight of Precinct Six

You want a deck that will remove the opponents deck while it controls what they’re doing and steadily building a zombie swarm?
A couple important red zombies will be Neheb, the Eternal and Wildfire Eternal. You could play Sedris, the Traitor King to bring stuff back on the cheap, and even Liliana's Reaver, Siren of the Silent Song, Order of Yawgmoth, and Slavering Nulls. All these guys getting through will be made easier if you have Zombie Master and Graf Harvest too. Undead Alchemist can make more zombies while they eat all the brains too...
Then you can play planeswalkers like Liliana, Death's Majesty to reanimate stuff repeatedly and the one Bolas does it too. Wrexial, the Risen Deep, Sepulchral Primordial and Diluvian Primordial are all good, and even Molten Primordial can be if you have a way to sacrifice the stuff you steal like Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Carrion Feeder or Corpse Harvester.

After taking a quick look at the build, I feel like Mimeoplasm wants more creatures in the list. Maybe ones that kind of impersonate what he can do, like Body Double, Mercurial Pretender, Evil Twin, Altered Ego, Clever Impersonator, and/or Progenitor Mimic.
As for cuts I think you have too many instants and sorcery cards in the deck, so maybe just trim down to your best.
Either way, build looks fun +1!

@Darkshadow327 I super appreciate all the suggestions. While many of them are more expensive than I'm wanting to put into this deck, I don't think you went overboard at all since the suggestions show you put some thought into what kind of cards the deck wants.
Vampiric Tutor would obviously be amazing, unfortunately it's just too expensive. I'll have to keep relying on Liliana Vess in that department. I do own a Demonic Tutor that's in another deck, I should definitely share it between them. I did just manage to get a borrowed copy of Xenograft from a friend so I'm going to throw that in at least.
Regarding counterspells...I know I know. I'm so bad at playing control decks. I have a UW Mill/Control? deck (Azor, the Millbringer) that has...2 counterspells total I think. Desertion is spectacular and I'm definitely going to add it. Disallow I don't have extra copies of and they're in decks I can't borrow from.
Regarding graveyard shenanigans: Most of your suggestions are more than I want to put into this but I understand the sentiment. Thrilling Encore has interesting potential and Diluvian Primordial seems like a better/worse Wrexial, the Risen Deep.
What would you recommend removing from the deck for new additions? Are there any cards that are trying to be too cute (other than the ridiculous forced tribal thing, of course)?

Please link cards in your question so people know what you're discussing.
From the Comprehensive Rules (Commander 2018 (August 10, 2018)): Damage dealt during the combat damage step by attacking creatures and blocking creatures as a consequence of combat. See rule 510, “Combat Damage Step.”
Only the damage dealt by Wrexial as a consequence of his attack is combat damage, as is the damage dealt by any blocking creatures as a consequence of them blocking. Triggered and activated abilities are not combat damage.

Hedron Crab, and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger are good mill creatures. Startled Awake Flip is a decent mill card if you can keep bringing it back. Siren of the Silent Song is good too, a discard and straight mill can hurt.
Perplex is a decent Counterspell, or a mill card. Mind Sculpt is just amazing! Increasing Confusion is decent as well. Psychic Spiral brings back all those mill cards, while milling your opponents in the process! Patient Rebuilding is recurrent mill, while also moving you forward.
Hope I was of some help! (And that I didn't go too overboard).

Your Wrexial, the Risen Deep is useless. You can only recall cards which won’t have any target anymore.
Did you check any specters?
