Gonti, Lord of Luxury
Legendary Creature — Aetherborn Rogue
When Gonti, Lord of Luxury enters the battlefield, look at the top four cards of target opponent's library, exile one of them face down, then put the rest on the bottom of that library in a random order. For as long as that card remains exiled, you may look at it, you may cast it, and your may spend mana as though it were mana of any type to cast it.

Thanks for the comment StanleyHartman,
Yes, I have tried Hostage Taker in similar decks. The problem is that, if you want to use his exile a creature ability more than once, you need to be able to flicker him (bounce him back to your hand) and flicker cards can take up a lot of space in the deck. A draw-back is that if Hostage Taker leaves the field, your opponent gets his/her creature back if you haven't summoned it to your side of the field. With Thief of Sanity , Dead Man's Chest (and a range of Modern cards) if you exile a card, it remains in your virtual hand and you can play it at any time.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. Do you own the cards that are in the maybeboard? There's several there that are much better than cards in the main deck.
Consider building this Dimir deck with Sultai in mind? If your goal is to play Sultai with Tasigur or Muldrotha later on then my advice is get playable cards that you can use in those decks, but for the time being get blue, black and Dimir cards and play them here with budget good stuff self-mill/reanimation strategies. Good stuff being playable spells especially creatures who have good ETB (enter the battlefield) abilities. Tasigur and Muldrotha use self-mill strategies not opponent mill strategies. Tasigur and Muldrotha abilities only work with cards in your own graveyard. Self-mill is much more powerful than opponent mill in multiplayer Commander.
Budget cards ($5 or less each) to consider adding that you can use in Sultai with Tasigur or Muldrotha later on:
- Command Tower
- Exotic Orchard
- Reliquary Tower
- Sunken Hollow
- Underground River
- Fetid Pools
- Sol Ring
- Talisman of Dominance
- Fellwar Stone
- Mystic Remora
- Smuggler's Copter
- Frantic Search
- Buried Alive
- Stinkweed Imp
- Careful Study
- Thought Scour
- Fact or Fiction
- Forbidden Alchemy
- Stubborn Denial
- Champion of Wits
- Solemn Simulacrum
- Looter il-Kor
- Thief of Sanity
- Peregrine Drake
- Gonti, Lord of Luxury
- Hostage Taker
- Nightveil Specter
- Rune-Scarred Demon
- Nezahal, Primal Tide
- Phyrexian Delver
- Viscera Seer
- Treasure Cruise
- Dig Through Time
- Dark Petition
- Animate Dead
- Dread Return
- Reality Shift
- Imprisoned in the Moon
If you like this idea then I can further help you to change this deck to make it easier to convert it into Sultai later on, but for now still being a good Dimir deck with Scarab God as Commander. Let me know your thoughts, good luck.

Oath of Teferi , Venser, the Sojourner , Noxious Gearhulk , Ashen Rider , Angel of Despair , I am personally a big fan of Gonti, Lord of Luxury , Jace's Mindseeker is decent, Conjurer's Closet for sure... maybe Jace, Unraveler of Secrets for top manipulation.

Ok so my question relates to any effect that causes a card to be "face down" in an otherwise public zones e.g. Gonti, Lord of Luxury , Thief of Sanity , Bomat Courier or any manifest. Say I was playing against UB at the protour and got royally mana screwed game 1. Nothing really happened in the entire game except I played an Island and he plays a Thief of Sanity hitting me once before i concede. Say the thief hits me and sees 2 islands and a Root Snare and he exiles the fog and puts the islands in my bin. Taking into account the competitive setting am I allowed to look at the exiled card before shuffling it into my deck seeing as it could give me vital information as to whether my opponent knows about what I'm playing for game two? Also is this the same for other similar effects I mentioned?
P.S. I am aware that morphed creatures need to be revealed between rounds.

Thanks for the comment harbingerofduh! Super sorry for the late comment, it took me almost two months to find the time to update this deck, alongside the other 3 that I own in paper. Anyways, you won't believe, I had already seen your deck before your comment, and I must say it's a pleasure to know that there are crazy people other than me that believe in mill in EDH.
As you can see, the deck went under a lot of modifications, taking out some boring and unperformig cards, to add the Thief of Sanity you mentioned. I must also thank you for telling me about Gonti, Lord of Luxury 's interaction with Tunnel Vision . Fun fact: one of my friends (OSELLONE) has had a deck with Gonti at the helm for almost a year now and yet I hadn't noticed the combo potential. I guess he'll be mad once he'll see me run it too.
I've wondered about including Undead Alchemist for a while and then I decided to not put it in. It's a cool card, and the combo potential is there, especially with Lightning Greaves and Thousand-Year Elixir , but I guess it's not for me, mostly for the fact that it exiles the creatures that hit the graveyard, so if somehow I don't win when I cast it, I'm screwed.
I had considered Sphinx's Tutelage when I first tried to build a decklist, but I didn't like it for some reason then... and I guess time didn't quite change my opinion with it :P
Again, thank for the comment and the patience, keep up the good work with the mill squad!

So much spice. No Gonti, Lord of Luxury though?
I should really add Sinkhole to my list too...

IAmTheWraith I can definitely help with and .
For red, you have a lot of fun options. Neheb, the Eternal is by far my favorite deck I play, but I've been having a lot of fun playing with Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor and brewing with Lathliss, Dragon Queen . There are a few other red commanders that I feel don't get enough love that you could build. Red is my space for sure so I'll be the most help there.
For white, if you want to play and win on some level, you have three options. Sram, Teshar, and 8.5 tails. Sram from draw, Teshar is all combo but can be played for value(I have a list for Teshar too if you'd like), and 8.5 is just nice protection.
I too like Gonti, Lord of Luxury for black. He's sweet value and a good combo finisher with infinite ETB loops.
