Creature — Faerie Rogue
Whenever Nightveil Sprite attacks, surveil 1. (Look at the top card of your library. You may put that card into your graveyard.)

ShrimpImpSame here. Such a fun card. The main reason I have the 4 guild gates in there is for the boost it gives Glaive of the Guildpact it's nice when rich is sitting at even a 75 or potentially a 9/5 but thats only when one Lich is holding one sword. Then I thought that since I'm using the gates I can sideboard in a tiny splash of something what ever colour gates I go with. I like Curator's ward but I also used dive down for a little while. I ran this deck as mono black for a long time first and really enjoyed it, but I just like seeing that rich grow, even if it's only one or 2 gates per game.
I do have a Dimir Lich deck as well. It includes Thief of Sanity Nightveil Sprite and Nightveil Predator, in place of the other zombies. But I find mono black with the 4 guild gates is the most affective so far. But I'm open into other ideas regarding different guild gates and other colours.
Thanks for your comment:)

I'd replace the Barrier of Bones and Darkblade Agent. Some good budget options to look at are Plaguecrafter, Nightveil Sprite, Burglar Rat, Unexplained Disappearance, and Price of Fame to name a few. Are you wanting to build a more tempo based deck or a more control focused deck? One nice thing about UB for budget is it's fairly easy and cheap to be able to transform your deck from one to the other through side boarding.

Nightveil Sprite is indeed a cheap and good addition to this deck. With so much surveiling going on, you might find success with Creeping Chill. When you dump it into the graveyard off of a surveil, it's essentially a free Sovereign's Bite. Also, Enhanced Surveillance may be an interesting addition here. Couldn't hurt to add a few more counters with Essence Scatter, Negate, and Syncopate either. Good luck!

I think I'd get rid of one or both of the Dimir Guildmages depending on how much you like the card (the ability is a bit expensive for what you get in my opinion). If you like the dual utility of Dimir Guildmage you could also consider swapping it for House Guildmage which I think is a tad better unless you're really hurting for draw abilities. Same with Dinrova Horror, while flavorful 6 cmc for a 4/4 with bounce seems a bit much when you have a good number of counters, removal, or things like Unexplained Disappearance. Of surveil cards, Nightveil Sprite can give you some great mileage out of just one card. As far as Dimir Spybug and Thoughtbound Phantasm, you'll have to make the call if you think its worth it for just one copy of each. From experience playing a Dimir deck I drafted with lots of surveil but only one of each those creatures, they're amazing when you draw them, but also often I had games where I didn't draw them. Or they got immediately removed. Surveil helps filter your deck to get to them faster, so 2 of each would probably make it much better. Up to you.
You could probably replace Dimir Charm with one of the cards I mentioned that you like, since I think the best ability on the charm is usually going to be the counter, followed by the removal, and you have a fair number of counters and some removal already.
Unmoored Ego is cool but if your friends/playgroup are also playing "guild kit" style with few duplicates, then it probably wouldn't make much sense in the deck, unless you have that one pesky friend that's always rocking 3-4x of a particularly annoying card that you need to nip at the bud.
Whispering Snitch and Enhanced Surveillance are also fun if you feel like you're surveiling enough to make it worth it. Though one could also say, if you're surveilling a lot then Enhanced Surveillance is a bit unnecessary overkill.
Also keep in mind, I don't think Whispering Madness would be nearly as useful without something like Notion Thief, outside of a scenario where you only have a couple cards and your opponent/s have a full hand. If the scenario is reversed, you'll only be helping them out. However, with Notion Thief it basically becomes a reusable "opponent discards hand, you discard and redraw a full hand" or some such.
Kinda hard for me to answer specifically "replace A B C with X Y Z" since a deck with few duplicates is generally less consistent in the direction it's trying to go. Some fun cards here though for you to consider.
Oh by the way, I didn't realize this at first so I'll throw this in here in case you didn't already know, but you can bounce Etrata back to your hand after damage to get her whole "hit counter exile" wincon thing and avoid reshuffling her ;)

Not much surveil for a Dimir deck, given it's their signature. If you want to go more with the surveil theme I'd highly recommend Dimir Spybug, Thoughtbound Phantasm, and Nightveil Sprite. If you're open to Dimir cards from past Ravnica sets, there's a bunch of cool ones all with the transmute ability (Dimir's old signature ability) like Perplex and Dimir Infiltrator (not the best examples maybe), and others like Notion Thief, Psychic Drain. I could go on and on, Dimir was always my favorite.

dunk_2687 Demon of Catastrophes should be an okay card, but our deck isn't really ready to sacrifice any of our own creatures, exept maybe a spare Nightveil Sprite. If you are going to try to make the deck more budget-friendly, you could remover the sideboard Vraska's Contempts and downgrade the manabase. Try to at least play three Doom Whisperers.
