Discovery / Dispersal
Surveil 2, then draw a card. (To surveil 2, look at the top two cards of your library, then put any number of thm into your graveyard and the rest on top of your library in any order.)
Each opponent returns a nonland permanent they control with the highest converted mana cost among permanents they control to its owner's hand, then discards a card.

Yeah control game 1 is miserable most of the time due to the large number of cards that are dead. Another big disadvantage to control is that both your list and mine have, is no TRUE form of card advantage. Discovery / Dispersal is card selection and replacement, but not really advantage. Disinformation Campaign is also just card replacement. The discard plan is technically card advantage but it's only temporary. Once their hand is empty Thought Erasure is bad and Disinformation campaign is a worse divination. The deck may need something like Chemister's Insight or Notion Rain to be more competitive against control game 1. That goes for both of our decks. Karn is interesting, but again it isn't TRUE advantage since your opponent gets to select the card for you.

@pbowen331, I'd say "Welcome to Tapped Out," but you've been here longer than I have.
Etrata can work, but only on non-token creatures, since exiling a token makes them nonexistent. You'll need to work on finding another form of winning condition if the first option isn't possible. I also notice that this is very budgety, is that deliberate?
I'll try to suggest things around that if possible, but I'll will suggest some pricer cards as well. I also don't know how heavy you want to go into Surveil. While I'm not going to name all of them, just the ones that seem useful.
- Useful cards would be Duress, Unmoored Ego, Plaguecrafter / Ravenous Chupacabra and Midnight Reaper to name a few.
- Better suited lands would Watery Grave or Drowned Catacomb.
- Cards that take advantage of Surveil: Blood Operative, Disinformation Campaign, Thoughtbound Phantasm, Whispering Snitch and Dimir Spybug.
- Cards that have the Surveil mechanic: Unexplained Disappearance, Price of Fame, Barrier of Bones, Sinister Sabotage, Doom Whisperer, Notion Rain, Dream Eater, Nightveil Sprite, Mission Briefing, Discovery / Dispersal and Connive / Concoct.
Hopefully that gave you some additional insight on improving your deck.

Kapitein_Koekblik Thank you for your continued support for this deck!
In Garruk's Wake is a good answer to the meta you described above but is also a dead card when drawn early. Alternatively, you may wish to consider adding cards to accelerate the deck when going up against Super Friends archetype. Low CMC card draws/scry spells can help you dig for the needed combo pieces faster (e.g. Preordain, Portent, Serum Visions, etc). As the saying goes - "The best defense is good offense...". Throwing you some food for thought, let me know whether this would work in your meta.
For GRN, I'd say the following cards are worth considering:
Discovery / Dispersal - The CMC of split cards is the sum of both sides, making this a 7 CMC card. Discovery is low cost with embedded Surveil mechanic. Dispersal is situational but may come in handy mid/late game, should we ever get there. I'd prefer this card over Notion Rain for its versatility.
Mission Briefing - Surveil + Let you recast goodies from graveyard (e.g. Tutors, Extra Turn spells).
Hope these helps! Let me know how your games went. Cheers!

Good Morning captainamerica,
I'm not sure I follow the core concept for this deck. So my apologies if you have already fielded this question, or another like it. You call this an aggro deck, however, it is more "reactive" (like a control deck) than "proactive" (like an aggro deck). I only say that because you are running a total of 7 creatures in the main board. I understand your budget constraints, and would like to recommend a budget Dimir Surveil Aggro list to you for consideration.
4 Thoughtbound Phantasm 11 Island 4 Nightveil Sprite 3 Dimir Informant 4 Dimir Spybug 8 Swamp 3 Discovery / Dispersal 4 Thought Erasure 4 Notion Rain 4 Drowned Catacomb instead you could run 4 Dimir Guildgate 3 Sinister Sabotage 3 Cast Down 2 Barrier of Bones 3 Disinformation Campaign
This list would be a little more aggro. I hope this helps.

Hi I am looking at other decks so I can build a similar one myself. I would recommended Mission Briefing over Flood of Recollection. Also Discovery / Dispersal works very well (ignore dispersal and use discovery as a 2 cost Preordain). Expansion / Explosion is also an extremely potent card, either copying your smaller spells or giving you a lot of draw in an opponents end step. I also do not think you need Wall of mist you have enough creatures and I think those card slots would be much more noticed as counter/draw spells
