Demonic Consultation Discussion

As an outlet to Misthallow/Eternal Scourge, no. Tazri being in 5C makes her the best outlet for it. Her color identity gives access to Demonic Consultation, Tainted Pact, Necropotence, Extract, Manipulate Fate, and many other powerful combo assembling tools alongside the normal utility 5C brings.
However, FC Prossh is still far superior. On top of having a commander that's much better outside of the combo, Prossh is also more useful than Tazri to the combo itself. He replaces Scourge/Griffin, instead only requiring any one of over a dozen cards in hand to combo off. While Tazri only has two interchangeable combo pieces, Skyraider has approximately 14. Prossh is also one of the top five decks in the entire format though, so it's somewhat unrealistic to compare Tazri. Tier 2 makes the most sense for her.

Laboratory Maniac can be useful for the Enter the Infinite combo, but there are many other ways to get out of that position (e.g.: counter the counterspel, or discard your hand at the end of the turn and play psychic strike, or even Library. Maniac is not reliable, as he can just be removed with a Lightning Bolt. Perhaps you should remove him, and play Nemesis of Reason instead. If you decide upon leaving Maniac in, maybe add Demonic Consultation; play maniac, and just before your next turn starts, play consultation, and search for Viashino Skeleton. Instawin!
Hope you like the ideas. Have fun milling!

Hi here are some budget cards that I know of that can help filter or directly search for what you want.
Demonic Consultation is a sweet option and probably my favorite. You don't have to pay any life, but you do run some risk of missing the card you want if it is in your top six cards. So it would be better to use this to grab something that you have in multiples like a Shallow Grave or an Exhume.
Spoils of the Vault very similar to the above card, but you have to pay life. This card can be somewhat of a gamble, could just kill you.
Demonic Tutor might break the budget but it is incredible.
Rhystic Tutor is much worse than the demonic version and possibly worse than Diabolic Tutor and Dark Petition, but can be cost sooner than those last two. Depends on what kind of decks you think you'll be facing. If you think you'll have time, it might be better to go with more expensive, but more consistent tutors.
Peer Through Depths can find most of your relevant cards.
Pieces of the Puzzle is similar to Peer Through Depths, but I think the extra mana is worth it here because it grabs two cards AND if there happens to be any creatures in the five, it dumps them right into the graveyard. You'll have to test it to see if the mana cost is too prohibitive, I don't think it will be because you have rituals and lotus petals.
Ideas Unbound can draw into what you need while providing a discard outlet for creatures. Risky, and costs UU so it might not have a place here.
My top three to possibly replace or augment Lim-Dul's Vault would be: Demonic Consultation, Demonic Tutor, and Pieces of the Puzzle. Some number of these cards should help with consistency. Good luck!

Besides the cards you mentioned (fow, opal, led), have you thought about running Demonic Consultation? It's legal in EDH for some reason and it fits any deck running maniac as alt win con (it can find you tendrils too or a permission spell if you are going to lose the game). Tidespout Tyrant seems a bit awkward manawise and Cloud of Faeries requires mana doublers to generate just a small number of additional mana. You might want to consider Dark Confidant and Snapcaster Mage in their place. Candelabra of Tawnos is way better than Cloud of Faeries but hard and expensive to find in paper. Same goes to Imperial Seal. Mana Drain is ridiculously good. You probably do not need to run Grapeshot--Tendrils of Agony is almost always enough (just remand it if you need to kill multiple opponents or use recursion spells).
