I think it's worth considering Waste Not

Aside from diabolic tutor you could consider running cards with Transmute to tutor up cards. Dimir Infiltrator Tutors for 2 CMC cards Perplex Tutos for 3 CMC cards Dimir House Guard Tutors for 4 CMC cards

Since a lot of your deck is from 2 to 4 mana I think these would provide cheap efficient tutors.

pigskinlover, thank you for taking the time to suggest Dawn Charm! However, the fact that it can be played in nonblue decks is not enough to balance out the downside that it only can counter a very small category of spells. See the sixth point under "What this list doesn't include" in the description.

KayneMarco, thank you for taking the time to suggest Dash Hopes and Rebuff the Wicked! However, the fact that they can be played in nonblue decks is not enough to balance out the fact that Dash Hopes will rarely counter the spell it's targeting due to the alternate effect and that Rebuff the Wicked only can counter a very small category of spells. See the last point and the sixth point under "What this list doesn't include" in the description, respectively. That last point was newly added because it was something I forgot to include, so thank you for helping me refine the list's parameters :)

SaltySpecula, thank you for taking the time to suggest Perplex and Grip of Amnesia! However the fact that they both have a way to cause the counterspell to fail besides paying mana means that they are unable to counter spells that would result in winning the game except in very specific scenarios. See the last point under "What this list doesn't include" in the description. It was newly added because it was something I forgot to include, so thank you for helping me refine the list's parameters :)

Tormod's Crypt, Bojuka Bog and Leyline of the Void help if your opponent is running a graveyard strategy.

The Scarab God Liliana Vess, Geth, Lord of the Vault, and Wrexial, the Risen Deep can take advantage of milling opponents (also Diluvian Primordial and Sepulchral Primordial).

Hedron Crab, and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger are good mill creatures. Startled Awake  Flip is a decent mill card if you can keep bringing it back. Siren of the Silent Song is good too, a discard and straight mill can hurt.

Jace's Erasure and Psychic Corrosion punish whenever you draw a card (they pair nicely w/ Patient Rebuilding. Then Memory Erosion just punishes your opponents whenever they try to do something.

Perplex is a decent Counterspell, or a mill card. Mind Sculpt is just amazing! Increasing Confusion is decent as well. Psychic Spiral brings back all those mill cards, while milling your opponents in the process! Patient Rebuilding is recurrent mill, while also moving you forward.

Hope I was of some help! (And that I didn't go too overboard).

I really reccomend Countersquall over negate and remand, since nocturnus also looks for it and the cost should be a non-issue. All the one-ofs are really cute- I actually love seeing Psionic Blast in here, but personally I'd want them all in the same CMC with Muddle the Mixture or Perplex tying it together.

That said, this looks like a lot of fun, and pretty reliable for the number of singleton cards.

Perplex also has an 'unless opponent' clause, but the cost is so brutal that almost no one in their right mind would do it. Grip of Amnesia would probably fall into the same category.
