Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker Discussion

So I notice your group's ban list is focused on the "feel bad" cards like game warping fatties and land destruction. This means your land is relatively safe and a deck focused on drawing cards can easily function on 34 or 35. I would build it with 33 but I see you want to get to a few select top end cards. I would cut these lands in order: Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep, Rakdos Carnarium, Izzet Boilerworks, Crosis's Catacombs, and Dimir Aqueduct.
High cost cards can be fun but it's important to balance their impact with the fact that drawing too many of them can stunt your game play. Cruel Ultimatum immediately jumps out at me as a fun card but ultimately lacking in the impact. Targeting a single player and being super heavy both in cmc and color requirements makes the risk to reward ratio not in your favor.
Jaya and Nicol Bolas both fall in a similar camp of cost outweighing their impact. Of the two a greater argument can be made for Jaya pumping out spells and drawing cards but that triple red is rough. Keep in mind the big goal here is to force draw absurd amounts of cards, each high cost and color intense spell you hit is a speed bump in that card drawing engine.
Dominus of Fealty and Thraximundar are a pretty high cost to invest into things that are off strategy. Nezahal, Primal Tide is in a similar boat but if your play group creates a need for a 7/7 uncounterable then it’s a fine inclusion. Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker is strategy adjacent but the slot can probably be put to better use. I also don’t like Guiltfeeder but I recognize that is likely do to my meta shaping my opinion of it.
Cards I would look at adding
Anvil of Bogardan I am surprised isn't already in here.
Memory Jar is another great wheel.
Psychosis Crawler is too on strategy not to include.
Sunder is great in decks like this but your group would probably ban it in a heartbeat based on your current ban list.
You’re already fairly deep in artifacts so a mana rock ramp package would massively increase speed and consistency. Sol Ring, Mana Crypt, (maybe) Mana Vault, Rakdos Signet, Dimir Signet, Izzet Signet, Thought Vessel, Chrome Mox, and Mox Diamond.
Vandalblast if your playgroup uses a healthy amount of artifact ramp.

Curve of Aggression
Enchantment - Rare
As an additional cost to cast ~, remove five poison counters from among your opponents.
Creatures you control get +X/+X, where X is 5 minus the number of poison counters on all opponents.
Sacrifice ~: Return target green or black card from your graveyard to your hand.
Bumped it up to Rare at the last moment, and added the additional cost to prevent it from being abused in non-poison decks. Now, I like it.

You definetly need a lot more lands. I generally wouldn’t go below 35, even in a deck with a low curve. If you want to build a mill deck, there are far better commanders out there than Muldrotha. Phenax, God of Deception, Lazav, Dimir Mastermind, and Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker to name the top three. Muldrotha, the Gravetide is generally better for filling up only your own graveyard and using cards that sac themselves as a cost of an effect or exploit the graveyard. Check out edhrec for ideas.

Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker is a great addition to the aggressive aspect of this deck. Adding 2 of this 5-drop would raise the total to 5, including Consuming Aberration. This makes cashing in 5+ mana more common. It's also cheap and it can fly.
Thought Scour is a great addition to any mill deck. It's only chip damage, from the aspect of milling, but it gives you great card advantage at the same time.

Phenax, God of Deception or even Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker would make for better commanders. Lazav, Dimir Mastermind. He has a cool ability and all, but it’s not good enough to warrant being a mill deck’s commander.

Thanks for the comment Dumgoldfish124!
Actually, at the start, I used to run Szadek, Lord of Secrets. His only problem is that he has to go through and hit, something that this deck can do really poorly, since I have zero evasion. Thus he got cut. Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker has the same problem, but he mills for much more and has a lower CMC.
Glimpse the Unthinkable is really strong, though it's not as strong as Mind Funeral, which dries out lands from our opponents (and everything in between). The problem with these spells is that are one time use, that's why I'd try to keep only the strongest, relatively speaking.

Good luck with your deck, mill is hard to pull off!

Right! That makes much more sense! Anyway, I'll keep an eye on the deck, Esper vampires definitely looks like an interesting concept. And so far, the list looks cool, so I'll check for when the list is finished! :D
Also, I was thinking that Mill Vampires could be pretty spicy. Like, having a heavy control shell, and some stuff like Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker to close the game, or Bloodline Keeper Flip that can close a game pretty fast! I mean, maybe that's a different deck, but Vampires with blue is something quite unexplored, I would say, so...
Anyway, have fun brewing! :D
