Memory Erosion Discussion
1 week ago
Pilfered Plans for draws, Propaganda for much-needed protection, Bonehoard is an OHK, Geralf's Mindcrusher is a big thing, Memory Erosion is some more milling, Nemesis of Reason is also gigantic and terrifying, Profane Memento makes you that extra bit harder to kill, Riddlekeeper is a decent deterrent for attackers, and Sphinx's Tutelage, once again, mills things.
From one Dimir agent to another: stay millin' and stay chillin'.

Witchbane Orb and Leyline of Sanctity as well as any other cards that give a player hexproof are quite a thorn in this deck's side. Luckily, cards like Mesmeric Orb, Memory Erosion and even Psychic Strike are safe from cards like this since they don't target opponents. You do bring up a valid point as cards like these are quite bothersome. Into the Roil seems like a nice 2 of that could replace 2x Mind Funeral in the side deck. I will try this out!

I'd recommend cutting Slagwurm Armor, Hover Barrier, Guiltfeeder, River Kelpie, and Mortivore for Sire of Stagnation, Doorkeeper, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, and Sewer Nemesis, Fraying Sanity. I'd also recommend Silent Arbiter, Riddlekeeper, Manic Scribe, Memory Erosion and Grisly Spectacle as well as Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter or Paradox Engine.

Just a few ideas without any justification:
Cards that I believe should be included: Cyclonic Rift, Dimir Doppelganger, Counterspell, Memory Erosion, Phenax, God of Deception, Mind Funeral, Keening Stone, Tainted Isle, Notion Thief, Clever Impersonator

Your deck has a lot of tools, but the thing is, I don't see a visible win condition. I can see the idea of chipping someone out kinda working in 1v1, but in multiplayer, I expect you to have a bad time. To make up for this, you have some options, and they all focus around the spells you cast.
Damage based cards like Guttersnipe, Faerie Tauntings and Aetherflux Reservoir, etc.Counter-based cards like planeswalkers, infect and Inexorable Tide, etc.Theft cards like Bribery, Insurrection, Slave of Bolas, Hostage Taker and even Rite of Replication.You could even mill with Memory Erosion, Leyline of the Void, and cards like Circu, Dimir Lobotomist Also, just dumb good cards like Draining Whelk, Venser, Shaper Savant and Kaervek the Merciless
Not to say what you're doing is bad, it's totally not. You just gotta squeeze that sweet value out of everything you do.
As for the cards you mentioned, I'd say Arcane Denial, Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker, neither but put Dark Petition in that slot, Duplicant because it's a body, Liliana of the Veil, Word of Seizing, and neither, kinda.
All that said, I don't really play control, I'm a Timmy at heart. I play against it enough to know that you want to use every part of that orange, not just the juice

If mesmseric orb is pricey Memory Erosion is a strong alternative.

Your deck seems to focus on discard, mill and zombie generation (I don't know what the last part is for). Considering your commander, I think you'd be better off focusing on mill exclusively. In terms of artifacts, I'd really recommend adding both Mindcrank and Keening Stone; especially that last one makes thing go out of hand quick.
In terms of creatures, I'd suggest adding some walls. Both blue and black have several cheap ones and they're great to start draining those libraries fast. Hedron Crab is an especially nasty start of a game for your opponents and Guiltfeeder can be especially strong in this deck too.
Sorceries are where this deck could really start getting crazy. Some additions I believe you should definitely consider are Increasing Confusion, Mind Funeral, Psychic Drain, Card:Sadistic sacrament and Startled Awake Flip. All of these can cause massive drain on libraries and sacrament can even remove someone's entire combo pool.
Hope any of this has helped you. Let me know.
