These ones made it into my blue/black mill deck. They were pretty useful.

Compelling Argument

Mind Funeral

Mind Grind

Mind Sculpt

Tome Scour

Keening Stone

Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver

Hedron Crab

Phenax, God of Deception

Nephalia Drownyard

This one would have made it if it wasn't so expensive at the time.

Have you considered Phenax, God of Deception? It's not a perfect fit, just an idea! :D

I would say top 3 are: Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker, Consuming Aberration, or Phenax, God of Deception.

I personally think Consuming Aberration would be the most overpowered.

also if Phenax, God of Deception is your commander, go to edit and in your decklist right next to the card name put CMDR

Puppet Strings and Sword of the Paruns are great to untap your creatures and play off of the mill ability on Phenax, God of Deception

Throne of the God-Pharaoh will help give another way to take out opponents since you are tapping/untapping a lot

Night Market Lookout is a good pinger when it becomes tapped

Lord of the Void is a spicy include if you are willing to spend a little bit extra on budget but worth it in the long run

Hollowsage forces opponents to discard

Servant of Tymaret is also a great pinger when tapping and untapping

The idea looks fun but I would redesign this into a Mill deck. You can still use the crabs you have, plus you can use Horseshoe Crab and Ancient Crab in combo with Phenax, God of Deception. Take advantage of those crabs' high toughness.

Fraying Sanity helps you win the match much faster. Visions of Beyond is a cheap hand-refuel card if you follow the Mill idea.

After that you need spells to answer your enemy's moves. Counterspells and removal will help you survive. There's also a lot of non-creature spells that Mill, like Glimpse the Unthinkable.

Other than all of this, if you continue to use Iceberg Cancrix switch your lands to Snow-Covered Island, Snow-Covered Forest or Snow-Covered Swamp

I think you should cut Doorkeeper. He's your only defender creature so 3 mana and tap to mill one isn't a good payoff. Phenax, God of Deception will break the wallet a little bit but is a solid and a staple for mill. Extract from Darkness, Glimpse the Unthinkable, Psychic Corrosion, Mindcrank, and Riddlekeeper are some good options. Hope this helps as a fellow mill player!

Good deck you have here! I have a few suggestions, but I'm not entirely sure if they will fit the theme of the deck. One option for the deck is utilizing those 2/2 Zombies to mill yourself with Phenax, God of Deception and create even more zombies in the process. I have a whole deck based around mill on my page, and you can go check it out there. If you target yourself with those zombies with Phenax, God of Deception then the results are insane. Just make sure you don't mill yourself to death in the process.
