When Disinformation Campaign enters the battlefield, you draw a card and each opponent discards a card.
Whenever you surveil, return Disinformation Campaign to its owner's hand.

Disinformation Campaign Discussion
5 days ago
If I were in a spot to play Unmoored Ego, I'd much rather play Sorcerous Spyglass. Period. I've had this argument with many people, and I think the deck has enough ways to deal with Teferi. Now, nothing is too slow in the current standard as long as it impacts the board. Literally. As long as you have some early tempo going on, you shouldn't worry about Dream Eater or Lazav being too slow, and Lazav blocks fairly well on turn two against aggressive decks, having three toughness. (Also notice that this is NOT a tempo deck but a midrange deck.) And if anything is too slow for this deck, it's Disinformation Campaign, since it's often very clunky in aggressive matchups and should be in the sideboard at max. Thief of Sanity always gets killed, because it has to be killed before anything else. Just getting one hit with it is often enough to swing a game in our favor. I've considered Fungal Infection in the sideboard but ended up choosing Dead Weight over it since it kills a lot more stuff.

I run a Dimir Surveil Tempo deck with Unmoored Ego in the sideboard. It is single-handedly the reason I have never lost to a Teferi, Hero of Dominaria or Izzit Drakes deck. Being able to take all of your opponents win conditions out right off the bat is great. Dream Eater is way too big and slow for this style of deck. I cut Lazav, the Multifarious because it was too slow and drawing it early game is so bad. It doesn't block well and has a very unassuming 1/3 body. I run 3 copies of Disinformation Campaign in the main and it is has been invaluable. Blood Operative has always felt like a side board card and I have 2 copies in mine. It is very good against Izzit Drakes and Golgari. I don't run any Thief of Sanity as it has always just died when I played it and I like having a wider array of mainboard removal. Fungal Infection is a card I highly recommend against boros, mono red, and golgari.

Athraithe: Agreed. I took Detection Tower out of the maindeck when I added more counter magic to the list since I was banking on countering the hexproof things before they became a problem. I recently reworked the deck to be more removal-heavy and less counter-heavy and with this build, I definitely agree that Detection Tower should return to the maindeck.
For the SB, I ditched the Fungal Infection, The Eldest Reborn, and Disinformation Campaign, per your suggestion, and went down 1x Cast Down. I added 2x Price of Fame and 2x Duress. I think bringing in the Duresses and taking out the Thought Erasures in control mirrors is a more effecient method of clearing the way for a Thief of Sanity or one of the wincons is better than a 3rd Negate in the SB.

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.

SP3CTR3_chelts, Mill decks aren't very good so I don't know if board explicitly against them is needed. Enhanced Surveillance would be fairly good against control or Golgari since those decks will be killing your creatures and wearing your resources thin. Being able to dig two cards deeper and then recycle your deck would be a big advantage. I don't believe it's that necessary though since you're already crippling control with Unmoored Ego, Thought Erasure, and Disinformation Campaign. The problem with side boarding is figuring out which cards matter the most. I have somewhat found that the side boarding plan sometimes confuses the deck as to what it is supposed to be doing.

@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.

Oh almost forgot looks like this deck might run into some card draw issues if you can't manage to draw your Disinformation Campaign so maybe look into something like Sword-Point Diplomacy or maybe Chemister's Insight depending on how blue or black dependent you want this deck to be, or whatever fits your mana base :P

You still need to remove 5 cards from the mainboard to be at a 60 card deck.
Unmoored Ego is a good card but it really belongs in the sideboard to use on games 2-3 when you know your opponent well enough to name useful cards. (Unless you have a really static meta where you know everyone's decks anyway...)
Barrier of Bones is a BAD common. Please remove it and only put it back in VS Aggro and even then Thoughtbound Phantasm is MUCH better.
Disinformation Campaign is VERY slow in standard. It's perfect for limited, but it's SLOW in standard. Worse yet, most decks can make a couple discard triggers actually HELPFUL to their cause! Golgari LOVE it, spells with jumpstart can use it like Radical Idea, I'm just not impressed with what it does, it doesn't address boardstate. I'd only put it in VS control when you need card advantage to win.
