Twanicus, hello and thanks for the comment!
Logic knot is not in the deck because I don't run thought scour, without it I can't be sure that it will always be preferable to leak. It's a lot of the times easier on your mana to run leak as well. You could still run logic knot in this spot and it would work fine I think.
I'm currently testing a more discard focused plan with the lilianas and esper charms, I haven't been able to test it yet, but I'm worried about the viability of holding counterspells and removal up with her, in addition to the problems you listed; but I'm hopeful that the power of the card in general will make her worth it.
Funnily enough the cards I cut to try this out was 4 spell queller.
Good luck with your esper brew and I hope this answered your questions sufficiently.

Serum Visions is better than both in a control shell because it looks at 3 cards. Its only downside, as you mention, is that it's a sorcery vs. an instant.
I suggested Opt for budget reasons. If you're limited to what you can buy, saving ~$8 so you can buy a Flooded Strand or something is likely better, as the superiority of Serum Visions over Opt isn't as big a difference between, say, Cryptic Command and Ojutai's Command.

I run snapcaster mage , augur of bolas as creatures in my mill deck with the crabs. I also main board damnation and surgical/extirpate. I will sometimes target their nonbasic lands in order to make mind funeral more effective.
