Kicker (You may pay an additional as you cast this spell.)
Each opponent mills eight cards. If this spell was kicked, instead each opponent mills half their library, rounded up.

mill decks never want to run any creatures other than Hedron Crab and Ruin Crab. All these other creatures you’re running do nothing to help you mill, and end up being anti-synergies in your deck (you’re unlikely to win through combat damage, and by having these cards you’re just ruining your chances to win by milling either).
some of your mill cards are super sub-optimal. For instance Tome Scour is the equivalent of running Shock in a burn deck - both cards too to little to get the job done and just end up leaving you empty-handed while your opponent is still alive. Same goes for Mind Funeral… it does too little for its investment. Better options include Fractured Sanity, Maddening Cacophony, and Tasha's Hideous Laughter.
You currently have no form of interaction, which means you’re just going to get stomped on… even the fastest mill decks can’t outpace typical aggro/combo decks, and need to buy themselves time. I would expect to see cards like Fatal Push, Extirpate/Surgical Extraction, Drown in the Loch, and Crypt Incursion here.

Chukklz As this primer clearly states, this deck is Lovecraft inspired, as such, I am deeply ashamed that I forgot about this card haha.
I definitely need to find a way to make this work, the flavor is absolutely god-tier. This would be a thematic, climactic way to end an opponent. My only concern is that it only targets one opponent, and other spells around the same CMC can hit multiple opponents like a kicked Maddening Cacophony or Breach the Multiverse. I'll play around with it. Thanks for the suggestion!

Great suggestions Mr_Tobiah, thank you! All 3 of those cards have me spinning my wheels and I'm thinking on adding all 3...

Now let's add some flicker: Thassa, Deep-Dwelling, Ghostly Flicker, Deadeye Navigator (no budget though), Essence Flux and some other suggestions: one of my favorites is this one Maddening Cacophony, Drown in Dreams, Curse of the Swine of course. Keep it up, looks interesting.

I would suggest more ways to find the combo. Think Opt maybe tweak a few cards to appear as uw control and suprise them game 1 with the combo.
Ideas for digging on a budget:
Ideas to protect the combo pieces
I see no sideboard so here are a few ideas:
Spreading Seas for tron
Deafening Silence combo
Mystical Dispute or in general, more counterspells
Rebuild bounce artifacts like urza saga tokens
Or you have alot of walls in the list maybe make them swing with High Alert as a plan B

18 lands is waaay too low. Imo you’ll need at least 22.

Maddening Cacophony seems like it would fit perfectly here. With enough mana, you can knock out half of your opponents library in one fell swoop.
