The Commander's Quarter had a on a budget Phenax deck. This is a good list for a casual group. Here are some cards that I want to highlight from his list:
- Creatures/cards that scale with size of graveyards: Wight of Precinct Six , Mortivore , Nighthowler , and Bonehoard .
- Duskmantle Guildmage - This was the original combo piece with Mindcrank. You have Syr Konrad, but it is good to have another combo piece.
- Thousand-Year Elixir - This card doubled in price early this year. You have a bunch of low-drop defenders; this enables you to mill them the same turn they enter the battlefield with Phenax out.
- Tree of Perdition - If you manage to get this early, you can have its toughness to be > 30. That's a lot of cards to be milled!

I actually gave thought to the Mindcrank and Duskmantle Guildmage infinite loop. I might as well add that in. It’s a good idea, but with a lot of milling options already available, and once I get enough mana, it’s whatever gets drawn first where I run this deck, I’ll look into cutting it in.
Buried Ruin was actually taken out originally because I never had to use it and it’ll sit in my hand. Padeem gives me a creature I can turn x/x for creatures in the graveyard, plus I like the extra draw. However urbog would be a good add in, so I can remove my swamps and have more snow covered islands for the Extraplanar Lens ...
I’d say this deck is moderately artifact heavy already, and adding in more hurts my feelings, but dropping my creatures that allow me to draw and replacing them with artifacts sounds better with their mana costs so I’ll probably make the cuts for that.
The rest of the cards you suggested have either already been considered, or have been removed already. I need the graveyards full for huge swings, removing them could hurt me in the end, has before but I am considering Languish ... often I find myself with zero creatures while everyone else has several 4/4 or less creatures and I’ll be a sitting duck who just angered everybody.

I like this deck a lot. Some things that could work well in this are: Geralf's Mindcrusher , Raiders' Wake , Mindcrank and Duskmantle Guildmage . Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank can be a devastating combo in decks like this.

With Altar of Dementia anytime a creature is about to die you can just sac them for extra mill.
Traumatize in commander is worth it I find, since the decks are thicc.
Beacon of Unrest let’s you play things from opponents graveyards that you’ve milled.

Control with Notion Thief and Narset, Parter of Veils forces your opponent to topdeck on turn 4. Teferi's cycles for other win cons like Sphinx's Tutelage or Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank , or even Teferi himself in Esper. Howling Mine helps me get there as well.

I would advise (I hate myself) to put in Duskmantle Guildmage , as it goes infinite with Mindcrank , Call to the Kindred to get more advisors out, Fraying Sanity because of course, perhaps if you put in Isochron Scepter and Dramatic Reversal , you could go infinite if you have mana rocks out. Also, Vanquisher's Banner can really help with card draw and even makes your stuff bigger just in case you need it. All in all, LOVE the deck, I was thinking about building mill in EDH soon, and I think I will base it off of this deck, so thanks. Oh and also, since more than half of your deck is blue, if also advise putting in a Drowned Secrets .
