Reclamation Sage is a permanent card that you can bring back over and over! Play at least 1 Mainboard!
Prodigious Growth is an awesome Permanent card that you can bring back over and over!
Torgaar, Famine Incarnate has a powerful ETB that you can use to reset your life, OR shut lifegain decks up!
In Bolas's Clutches another permanent that you might want to return from the grave!

My favorite discard spell in standard is Heartless Pillage! It's easy on the colored mana, ramps us with the treasure token which is EASY to trigger with your flyers!
If this were my deck I'd swap out 1x Disinformation Campaign (You don't need 3... seriously) And both Vona's Hunger and replace them with 3x Dire Fleet Poisoner!!! Ignore her text beyond FLASH+DEATHTOUCH He can flash-block hexproof creatures! Problem solved!

Sleep is a pretty powerful card, either for the side, or mainboard. It taps all of your opponent's creatures for your combat step, this turn AND next. makes it easy enough to swing for the fences and crush them with your birdies!
It's worth considering :)

Somebody was asking about how the triggers resolve and this was a very good answer, might be useful to you.

You're at 64 cards,
If this were mine I'd cut
2x Barrier of Bones (sideboard vs Aggro... maybe?)
2x Wall of Mist (sideboard vs Aggro... maybe?)
That would leave room for 2 new cards!
+2 Admiral's Order (AMAZING protection for attackers) OR +2 Curious Obsession sounds decent on paper is AWESOME on Nightveil Sprite (surveil right before you draw) or Dimir Spybug (extremely hard to block so he gets in for draws REALLY easily)
I play both in my Dimir deck and Curious Obsession is GREAT!
Mission Briefing is GOOD!!! You Surviel BEFORE you pick a card to copy, MEANING you can pick a card that you just put there by survieling with Mission Briefing it'self. AND you have until the end of the turn to cast... whatever you picked. You don't have to cast it right then... :) Kinda mana expensive... SUPER VERSATILE! If you have them, try them out!
One last card to consider might be either Dire Fleet Poisoner or Price of Fame. Both behave like instant speed removal, the poisoner flash-blocks to get past hex-proof!!! (Ignore his textbox besides the FLASH+DEATHTOUCH) He's pretty decent.
I'm still pumped from last FNM!!! My Dimir deck did pretty dang well!

It's time for an update!

Your deck is a good start! But I think the best thing I can do for you is offer for you to look over my own Dimir Deck, it's much different from yours.
I also am stickign pretty close to using only cards from the new set (because Surveil is AMAZING!) but I'm using a few powerful cards from other sets that synergize too well with a fairly aggressive tempo style deck that I'm trying to build.
IMO either run Dimir as a tempo deck like mine, OR full control deck, OR try building one directly around Etrata, she's pretty awesome!
Etrata decks look interesting here's one I liked:
Good luck bro!

It has just come to my attention that when the trigger comes for you to shuffle Etrata... you should cast Release to the Wind in response...
I know right? Freaking cool!
Also I'm really tempted to find a way to get Maximize Velocity in an Etrata deck...
October 2, 2018 3:16 a.m.
Have you considered Maximize Velocity?
Easy to surveil! And gets Etrata there much faster!
October 1, 2018 3:17 a.m.
If I were building an Etrata deck I know I'd be running Maximize Velocity it is easy to surveil into the grave, but still ready to be cast the moment she hits the board so you know she'll get there before your opponent can do anything about it!
On that note, Enhanced Surveillance will help you to find her WAY faster each time you surveil.
If I had to remove something from this deck I'd pull Narcomoeba it's bad if you draw it, and it's barely good if you surveil it. Either way it's a tiny 1/1... Why not have draw like Opt or removal like Price of Fame in that slot? Both of those play into your strategy really well!
Good luck man!
I'm working on my own Dimir deck right now too! http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/double-d-dimir-distractions/?cb=1538377853
