Queen of Ice
Creature — Human Noble Wizard
Whenever Queen of Ice deals combat damage to a creature, tap that creature. It doesn't untap during its controller's next untap step.
(You may cast Queen of Ice from exile if you sent it on an adventure.)
Rage of Winter
Sorcery — Adventure
Tap target creature. It doesn't untap during its controller's next untap step.
(You may cast Rage of Winter for from anywhere that you have the permission to cast this, then exile it on an adventure instead of putting it into your graveyard. When you have not chosen to cast Rage of Winter, this card is treated only as Queen of Ice in whatever zone it is in.)
(Example scenarios for Rage of Winter: You may cast this off of Melek, Izzet Paragon. You may not target this with Snapcaster Mage. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben increases the cost of this. Electrodominance requires X=2. You may cast this from a cascade spell if the spell has a cost greater than Queen of Ice's cost. If you cast a Rage of Winter that another player owns, only you may cast the Queen of Ice that gets sent on an adventure, not the owner.)

Queen of Ice Discussion

triproberts12 thanks for those suggestions!
I had no idea about Mana Skimmer and will definitely put that nightmare in! I have a few of the ones you named but Time of Ice is a solid recommendation. It'd work well in case I don't get much out - really great pairing with Orb of Dreams by bouncing them back at the end too. Dream Tides is tempting but it would slow down my deck more than it already is. I forgot about Thalakos Dreamsower, might consider putting it in for the mid-mana cost. Queen of Ice is also a solid pick. I'll look into all of these, thank you!
Side note, when I first started learning magic, I had half an idea of making a white/green bird deck. Your favorite card just might inspire a black/green/white dredge deck with birds.

Time of Ice, Quiet Contemplation, Back to Basics, Dream Tides, Wrath of Marit Lage, Temporal Distortion, Neko-Te Thalakos Dreamsower, Wall of Stolen Identity, Frost Titan, Queen of Ice, Wall of Ice, Niblis of Frost, Guardian of Tazeem, Icefall Regent, Dungeon Geists, Mesmerizing Benthid, House Guildmage, Tidebinder Mage, Watertrap Weaver, Frost Lynx, Stitched Mangler, Fogwalker, and Vertigo Spawn would probably be my picks for "freeze" tribal.
Alternately, if you're not invested in Dimir, so much as in the creature itself, you could build a Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, or Empress Galina deck, since those commanders probably best represent what the card is doing.

carlmoores yes normally 40 is too much but look at who the general is. You're going to want to be paying that extra 2 to copy stuff, right? Average cmc may as well be 5.
@ Vash98 you might like these cards: Shrink (not great but it's on theme!), Vizzerdrix (white rabbit), Queen of Ice (queen of hearts maybe?), Illusory Ambusher (cheshire cat), Mad Ratter, Spore Frog (frog footman)

I like the build, however I have a few comments regarding the overall play pattern of the deck.
In this build I would absolutely include all 4 copies of Thassa, Deep-Dwelling , with the goal being to complement 4 copies of both Thassa's Oracle and Cavalier of Gales . The ability to manipulate the top of your deck this much every end step with one of these combo pieces out is absurd. With the devotion and body from Cavalier of Gales , and huge body of Thassa, Deep-Dwelling , it gives you a way to win the game through attacking if the Thassa's Oracle plan doesn't come together quick enough. That being said, you would need to go up to somewhere around 25/26 lands to consistently hit your 4th and 5th land drops on time. I think this plan is much more powerful than playing Syr Elenora, the Discerning , so I would cut her.
I think the mix between instant speed spells and sorcery speed spells is a little awkward in this build, especially in the case of Wavebreak Hippocamp . On turn 3 you play your Wavebreak Hippocamp , however don't have mana open to cast a counterspell, card draw, or bounce spell to trigger it. Effectively you took your turn off by playing a low power creature, and left yourself open to a strong turn 4/5 play from your opponent. For this reason I would elect to choose 1 route or another, with the sorcery speed route being more strong in my opinion.
I would elect to play cards such as Mu Yanling, Sky Dancer , Vantress Gargoyle , Corridor Monitor , or even Queen of Ice in your lower curve slots. You want to be slowing your opponent down while you set up big mana plays, and all of those cards provide good effects to do so through blocking/tapping. Brazen Borrower works nicely with those effects, so I would keep that in for sure. Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner is an option to replace some of the card draw you would be lacking if you cut Glimpse of Freedom and Thirst for Meaning , as she would trigger from Vantress Gargoyle , Cavalier of Gales , and Thassa, Deep-Dwelling if you have the devotion. Plus her ability will help you ramp by untapping lands or your Nyx Lotus . Reducing the amount of instants would make cards like Narset, Parter of Veils and The Magic Mirror much worse so I would cut those in this type of build.
So to summarize, I would make sure to include the following:
- Vantress Gargoyle
- Mu Yanling, Sky Dancer
- Thassa, Deep-Dwelling
- Cavalier of Gales
- Castle Vantress + Island to get 25 lands
I would consider adding the following:
I would remove the following:

The Fall of Nicol Bolas 2UBR Enchantment-Saga
1- Destroy Target planeswalker. You sacrifice a creature. If you cannot, discard a card.
2- Remove all counters from target permanent.
3- Return up to one planeswalker from your graveyard to the battlefield. If a Liliana planeswalker is returned this way, exile her, then create Ana Iora, a 2/2 human cleric with lifelink, deathtouch, indestructible, and “When this creature deals combat damage to a player, return target creature or planeswalker from a graveyard to the battlefield under your control. It is a zombie in addition to it’s other types.
Create a card for Elsa from Frozen. For example, Queen of Ice

To make it clearer - these are the changes I'd make for the deck to win more :D

Artifact Creature - Wall
During your untap step, if an effect or ability would prevent you from untapping lands or artifacts you control, Electric Fence deals X damage to that effect's controller, where X is the number of permenants you control that didn't untap.
