Hey everyone. I'm new to Magic (only been playing for about a month), and I decided to try throwing a deck together. It's a blue/black mill deck. Check it out and let me know what you think. All feedback is appreciated. Thanks!

You need to autocard your deck.  [ c ] Counterspell [ / c ] = Counterspell when the spaces are removed.  It helps to review the deck and make comments better.

Thanks! I was trying to figure out how to do it.

Yes and please don't use Italics, it becomes glitchy when auotocarding
A very common mistake for new players is trying to use a little of everything. You should focus on the best cards for what you are trying to achieve. As a guideline this means 24 lands and 9 cards at 4 copies each. You also have demonic tutor in your deck does that mean you want to use vintage format?

There are a lot of creatures in your deck which is not typical of mill decks. Usually they have around 12 creatures then the rest is control/discard/removal and mill. Using a cards with cypher like paranoid delusions or isochron scepter usually helps. 

Your mana curve is also very high. A deck like this should keep a much lower curve. 

Hope this helps.

agree with ppkitty. Check out some of the basic guidelines in my banner below (I just get sick of typing them over and over again). Since this is not Standard Mill, I would focus on the mill aspect and leave the damage at the door. If you wanna mill, mill. If you wanna win through damage, do that. I've made a pretty nasty U/B Mill deck that basically counters/kills and mills for the win (almost entirely creature-less too)
