Ashiok, Dream Render
Legendary Planeswalker — Ashiok
Spells and abilities your opponents control can't cause their controller to search their library.
-1: Target player mills four cards. Then exile each opponent's graveyard. (That player puts the top four cards of their library into their graveyard.)

+1 I don't know about Founding the Third Path. It doesn't hit anything good except glimpse ETB. Mill 4 is meh. Ch. 3 is OK but I think you just want 4 copies of Tasha's Hideous Laughter. Check out Ashiok, Dream Render for SB. Maybe a copy of Psychic Corrosion could make the MB.

Blue has pretty much no good options for removal unfortunately, so you’d probably need to splash into black or white.
I suspect you “haven't had a problem with three costs” only because your playgroup are also playing mostly slow/clumsy spells… anything 3-mana or above is generally slow to play regardless of the decks land count (because playing such a card usually means that’s your only spell for the turn).
If i were making a mill deck on an ultra-budget, as you are, it’ll probably look something like this:

king-saproling Funnily enough I had actually been seriously debating trying to change this deck into a Dimir self mill. I used to run a Ashiok, Dream Render for cleanup in my mono blue (not legal). I have since thought about Running Sygg, River Cutthroat as I could basically keep mono blue and just use him as card draw and keep in my Ashiok legally.
Funnily enough though, I do have a Araumi of the Dead Tide in my inventory. I had never envisioned running that with petitioners but some of the examples you have pointed out lean towards a strong, but also unique build. I actually believe I will move forward with the idea of changing my paper petitioner deck listed above into an Dimir Araumi of the Dead deck. It likely wont be soon, but after I sell some of my budget decks, I'll have more funds to shop around for the black cards above.
Thanks a ton for these idea updates.

Evening modern community!
I'm trying to put together a monoblue deck to play in modern league in MTGO and currently I don't think there's any win conditions for mono blue besides Murktide Regent. I can't afford buying 4 copies of that card, it's just too expensive. Other cards I can't afford are Archmage's Charm, Tasha's Hideous Laughter, Subtlety and Force of Negation. My deck consists of Baral, Chief of Compliance, Snapcaster Mage and Torrential Gearhulk to make spells like Cryptic Command and Time Stop cheaper or free. So far I've been thinking about the viability of these cards below as my win conditions, but I'm not sure if I should include them: Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Thassa's Oracle. I'm also including Narset, Parter of Veils and Ashiok, Dream Render for some utility. What do you guys think?

Need more draw if your going to run Sphinx's Tutelage.
I recommend Narset, Parter of Veils in place of Ashiok, Dream Render but DO keep her in the SB, she does have value.
Drowned Secrets is a must for mill as it adds value to every cast.
The rest of it looks solid.

Thanks for commenting, ProxyTTV!
The reason I don't run the card in this deck as well is because I prefer running Ashiok, Dream Render and Nihil Spellbomb for graveyard hate, and I really don't need more. The reason I prefer them over Voidwalker is because Voidwalker doesn't remove cards that are already in your opponent's graveyard and can't give you card advantage until the turn after it's played. Plus, although this is perhaps a little niche, I live in a meta where Animate Dead isn't uncommon, so graveyard hate on a creature can sometimes turn bad for me.
If you play in a meta with a lot of graveyard interaction and/or plenty of big cards you can cast off of Voidwalker, it's definitely still worth running though!

I suggest a lot of kill spells that hit planeswakers too because they have been the bane of my existence in the past, especially Ashiok, Dream Render.
