TrumpZone first of all thank you for the suggestions, I actually quite like Vicious Rumors . It allows for a discard and a mil, making up for the opponent getting to choose the discard. Not to mention it's a low cost way to trigger my Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank combo. Thoughtseize is mostly just in here because I have two of them to be honest.
Second the only reason I'm not running 4 of Glimpse the Unthinkable is the monetary value of the card. I am hoping to acquire a playset of them sooner or later though.
Also, I'd give yourself more credit as you gave all solid suggestions.

This is a very impressive deck - probably better than anything I'm really qualified to judge. As is, I'll just give suggestions where I see them.
Vicious Rumors and Raven's Crime are both very good 1 cost black discard cards that don't cost you life, unlike Thoughtseize . Vicious Rumors especially so, since it essentially discards two cards. You could even go for Despise if you want to be able to choose a specific card. Of course, if you really value the flexibility of Thoughtseize , I can see why you might want to keep it.
I also think you might be able to utilize Glimpse the Unthinkable . It's a great 2-cost discard card, and a great way to activate a lot of your effects and set off a chain reaction

So, if you want to mill or make your opponent draw out their deck, some cards that are going to help you get there are as follows:
Use Pili-Pala and Grand Architect to create infinite mana and then cast Archeomancer and Mercurial Pretender to blink Archeomancer to pull those instant and sorcery cards back from the graveyard to continue to force your opponent to draw out their deck.
As a back up, get rid of all the jank in the deck and throw in about 20 Persistent Petitioners with Thrumming Stone , and all the tribal stuff like Coat of Arms , Stoneforge Masterwork , Adaptive Automaton , and Vanquisher's Banner . You can either use the petitioners to mill out opponents or you can just swing them. Nobody will expect that. Hell, throw in Archetype of Imagination for good fun.

Is this going to be a deck that aims to use these cards you exile or just mill them out for the win condition?
Without a doubt cards like Codex Shredder and Pyxis of Pandemonium come to mind when its a direct mill to exile effect. However, depending how big your budget can be, you can run something simple like Muddle the Mixture to transmute for Rest in Peace to turn ordinary mill cards such as Glimpse the Unthinkable and Mind Grind and Rest in Peace will then exile them. The more expensive side of things you could play Enlightened Tutor to hit your Rest in Piece as well as Helm of Obedience. Helm of Obedience Rest in Peace is an infinite mill loop for one player at a time...
Starting with a typical U/B mill shell like say, Phenax, God of Deception and using staple cards from there to then encorperate that into an Esper shell.
As far as a Commander goes, something like Sharuum the Hegemon to grab back Altar of the Brood and Mindcrank would not be a terrible option as well. I can see Sydri, Galvanic Genius being a respectable option too! Needless to say, Esper has MANY MANY options to pull from in terms of combo, strategy and cardpool.
Sincerely hope this helped!

I playtested your deck against my deck Ancient Oblivion - Plasma Apocalypse
I would make it a blue black deck with milling as your first win condition.
also think of Jace, Memory Adept as your finisher

I'd try and work on getting 4-ofs of the better mill cards to improve your consistency. Use 4 Breaking / Entering , 4 Mind Funeral , 4 Thought Scour , 4 Archive Trap . Go down the 2 Pilfered Plans, the Altar of the Broods, the Tormod's Crypt (the crypts are more a SB card), and a few creatures (spectors or lobotomist). Work towards trading or saving for a set of Glimpse the Unthinkable s since they're one of the best mill spells ever printed. Then I'd cut the non-crab creatures for some black removal spells like Dismember , Fatal Push , or the more budget ones like Doom Blade , Ultimate Price , or Grasp of Darkness . In this deck, Drown in the Loch might be one of the better removal spells you could run that can also counter important things after turn 3 or so. Merfolk Secretkeeper is a great budget mill card that gives you blockers against creature decks that also mills. I'd run 4 of those before any other non- Hedron Crab creature, and maybe before Tome Scour s to be honest. Visions of Beyond should be the only card-draw spell you need in a modern mill deck, so I'd add that to your maybe list at least. I don't know if you're trying to get the entire deck under a certain budget, or if you're just slowly trying to accumulate the best mill cards that you can, so hopefully some of my suggestions help. It's been a while since I sleeved up a mill deck, but the last time I did it looked something like this. I would definitely change some things about it, but it might be a good starting point for you depending on how competitive you want to be.

I have a similar deck I built a while back. I've thought about going back to it and tweaking it a little. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/jace-mind-drinker/ Anyway, here are some cool cards.
