Deck discussion for modern mill

I like the way you can store some mill in the graveyard.

This jace is about card quality. You trade a useless card for something that might be better. This isn't quite the same as card advantage, and is dependent on the overall quality of the cards in your deck. This might be why many mill-decks tried him out for a while, but then stopped using him. He is exceptionally hard to build a deck around, but using flashback is one way of doing it.

His archivist is all about cardadvantage, but jace being jace, they do not compliment each other very well. His archivist wants to tear the library down and start all over, while jace prefers to replace what he throws away, and thus sabotages his own helper.

Overall this build needs some defences. The most aggressive decks out there are capable of bypassing blockers and they are able to kill at turn 3-4. Infect can even kill at turn 2 due to become immense driven by archive trap.
