I have spent quite a bit of time brewing with Scheming Symmetry , here are cards I had in various builds that you may find interesting.
Gives a shuffle effect if the opponent searches for a basic, so best used when you are holding another guaranteed shuffle. It also sends lands to the graveyard, opening them up to be hit by Surgical Extraction
Whatever they search for, just exile it. Scheming Symmetry is not a may, so it will always guarantee a trigger off Symmetry, even if the opponent sees the combo and searches a land. This card also punishes fetch lands and will do work for you.
Top Deck Mill Effects
Ultra spicy tech. Use Quicken then Symmetry at opponents end step, so that you will untap and get the card before your opponent. Just make sure you grab something that forces a shuffle or mills a card.
You can get instant access to the cards you tutor, and these filter mana.

Gunna need some more cards and decide your signature spell. Personally, I'd go with Mystical Tutor or Demonic Tutor if its within budget then perhaps play cards like Lantern of Insight to know who to mill.

Consuming Aberration is easier to deal with in comparison with Paradox Engine , Engine also allows you to stack triggers to untap all your rocks a multitude of times. As long you can cast your spells, you can go pseudo-infinite. If you are already going infinite mana than Aberration is a waste of a slot as you can recast your commander.
Paradox is just good in general and also allows you to control their deck far more efficiently when it's resolved. Take this scenario where you have Lantern of Insight on the field along with Circu, Future Sight , Sensei's Divining Top as well as Ghoulcaller's Bell . With Paradox on the field and mana rocks that produce at least 3 mana, you can essentially control the draw of everyones board state locking down the board, you see what they draw, if you don't like the card cast a spell to trigger Circu by using the mana provided by the rocks, on the stack you can either mill the card or target other players before untapping all your nonland permanents.

Memory Plunder would be great tech for mill strategies, same as Lantern of Insight so you can see who to mill as well. Altar of the Brood is also quite funny for the consistent mill. Codex Shredder is a great tool as well as recursion engine when you want something back from your grave.
Hope that helps!

First off, You might like Lantern of Insight . Great way to know who exactly to hit.
Second, you might love Decaying Soil (with threshold) + Deathrender . ETBs For as much as you have mana. Obviously much better with infinite mana, as then you can just exile everything and win with Gonti.
You might be interested in my four color deck that does similar things with Gonti: TAKE WHAT'S MINE | Yore-Tiller EDH
