Sure Zelpoke! So ditch Breaking and Entering and Jace's Erasure, and add 4 Sphinx's Tutelage. Definitely do that. I'm not a huge fan of Traumatize, idk why, maybe take just one out to leave 2 of them. Then go ahead and throw in at least 2 Catalogs. Idk why I didn't notice Mind Grind in the sideboard. Go ahead and swap out Thought Scour for Mind Grind, and mathematically speaking, Mind Sculpt trumps Dream Twist. Fill out your Mind Funerals to 4. Try removing 2 Hedron Crabs and 1 consuming abberation or Jace's Phantasm, then add 2 Nemesis of Reasons to finish the game or Thing in the Ice  Flips to quicken the game, whichever you prefer. Add 1 Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger to impress your friends and feel cool, plus its all over once he's out. Idk where to fit Psychic Spiral, it seems to work better with decks centered more on black grinding and discarding as opposed to blue milling and controlling. That one might get pushed out.

As for your question about Slip Through Space, right now I'm refining an Izzet Prowess deck (check it out, "The Sins Of Our Fathers...", its sick!), and I combined Slip Through Space with Mirrorwing Dragon, Docent of Perfection  Flip, and Mercurial Geists, and it was awesome for that!! Just for perspective on its use. I don't know how useful it would be in this deck, but I could see it working with Wight of Precinct Six pretty well. Imma leave it up to you to decide whether or not it's worth using, how many, and what cards are worth taking out to make room.

I like where this deck is going. A few suggestions though...

First of all, where in sam hill is Sphinx's Tutelage?? Every mill deck basically seems to revolve one way or another around this card, and imho, though grind is a better strategy, this is THE best mill card out there. Devastating especially against mono-color decks. Make sure to add some draw enablers, Catalog or Take Inventory for example.

Second of all, have you ever seen Nemesis of Reason? Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger? Thing in the Ice  Flip isn't exactly a mill card, but still a good defender. Any of these guys could add an extra punch.

Third, I love Psychic Spiral. You could basically spend the game milling yourself, then play one of these, shuffle your graveyard back into your deck, then cause your opponent to lose that many cards. They'll never know what hit them!!

Lastly, unless you add some red mana, you should probably ditch breaking and entering. Doesn't really seem to be doing much, unless I'm missing something.

Wow that's interesting, your playgroup has 2 mill decks. If they're milling you obviously add in Elixir of Immortality or Psychic Spiral; definitely add Relic of Progenitus if you can. But glad it's a fun deck.

Have you considered any of the following:

Mindwrack Liege to help make your creatures a little bigger

Teferi's Puzzle Box, Winds of Change, or Psychic Spiral to annoy your opponets more

Whirlpool Drake, Whirlpool Rider, or Whirlpool Warrior to refresh your hand

Overall, I like your theme and it seems pretty good.

Two stipulations and a suggestion:

First, you sound a little board with winning in the two most conventional ways in commander: board states and combo kills. To the end of fixing that, try building a deck that instead of winning, just doesn't lose. Rather than doing so via pillow fort etc, try building a deck that is heavy on removal and runs only a handful of creatures with which to win.
Second, you have a bunch of pooper scoopers in your group who you want to beat before they concede. To that end you seem to want a deck that still can pull wins out of the blue with individual cards (so not board based).

Assuming I've properly understood what you're after, here is my suggestion: make a deck around 2 or 3 non creature cards that have the capacity to win on their own. Such decks largely are on the "don't lose" strategy until they rip one of said cards. Examples:
Aetherflux Reservoir lifegain. (Oloro?)
Villainous Wealth control. (7 drop sultai gorgon?)
A steal your opponent's stuff deck.
Psychic Spiral self mill. (Jeleva?)
Jhoira of the Ghitu with a big janky spell deck.
The list goes on. These decks won't be top tier competitive, but they will be a bit more unique, which is what I'm thinking you were going for.

I decided to keep the Psychic Spiral, but trade out the Sickle Ripper for Vela the Night-Clad.

Sensei's Divining Top can set up your mills.Curse of the Bloody Tome gives you mills. Nephalia Drownyard. Psychic Spiral could become a wincon. I have 50 cards in my graveyard. You just drew a bunch and now your library is gone. Dreamborn Muse mainly the self mill at your upkeep. Genesis hand recusrion.

maybe Recall and Thirst for Knowledge. I personally dont like thirst for knowledge as you need to discard a card no matter what and recall is just an odd discard return from graveyard spell. Even Psychic Spiral would be better than Recall imo. Could even stand to remove Guilty Conscience. Also may want to cinsider replacing Darksteel Plate with Darksteel Forge so everything have indestructible and not just one creature
