define really fast deck? Aggro or combo? Against aggro more damnations, urborgs, and tendrils of corruption...against combo use hand disruption.

And what format is this deck for...cause its not Standard legal as is.

This belongs in another part of the boards, deck help has it's own section. However, if there's a mod out there who could move it there, I could give it a look.

The only card that's not Standard-legal is Jester's Cap, which was in 9th but wasn't reprinted in 10th. Did you mean the Coldsnap card Jester's Scepter?

One card that is in 10th is Twincast, which is essential to any Dimir mill strategy. It basically means you're running eight Glimpses, so they'd be essential to track down. I hope they're not too expensive.

Since Milling is the primary strategy, I'd cut down the creature army and up the control element. Try to get two more Damnations; those are expensive, though. I'd cut every creature there except Laquatus and Aeon Chronicler, though maybe Draining Whelk might make the list. One thing I'm noticing is that they're all rare; rare doesn't necessarily mean good. Root around for some Dimir Infiltrators, as they can fetch out the Glimpses and Twincasts you need to put the game away, plus any countermagic you might need to catch up.

Cutting that many creatures leaves a good amount of space for other stuff. I'd also cut Tormod's Crypt (it's a sideboard card), Millstone (far too slow), Diabolic Tutor (the Infiltrator's better) and Ribbons of Night. I'd put in some more Countermagic (Remand if possible, and 4x Cancel) and some more kill. Tendrils of Corruption is a fantastic card if you can track down 2x Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.
