I like it.
You may also want to consider some graveyard hate such as Tormod's Crypt in case you sit across from Muldrotha. Milling can incidentally turn a lot of decks on.
Always a fan of a rat deck, especially ones with not so obvious commanders.

I've got some experience with nekusar, generally you don't want to give your opponents options, or only target a single player when you can hit the whole field. I would cut Browbeat, Keranos, God of Storms, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, Mana Leak, Reminisce
As an alt wincon you can consider Jace, Wielder of Mysteries, Laboratory Maniac and Thassa's Oracle so you can deck youself out safely. Mindcrank also forms an infinite combo with Bloodchief Ascension
I'm not sure about what your budget is, or the deck you were inspired by, so I hope this helps.

I think you should cut Doorkeeper. He's your only defender creature so 3 mana and tap to mill one isn't a good payoff. Phenax, God of Deception will break the wallet a little bit but is a solid and a staple for mill. Extract from Darkness, Glimpse the Unthinkable, Psychic Corrosion, Mindcrank, and Riddlekeeper are some good options. Hope this helps as a fellow mill player!

Thanks for the comments VampDemigod. My primary way to win is to combo off using the Mindcrank + Duskmantle Guildmage combo or the Painter's Servant + Grindstone \ Sphinx's Tutelage combo. Otherwise I can just make lazav copy a fat creature and equip some swords and go for Voltron win.

With budget in mind, here are some cards that are in my Phenax mill deck that would suit your deck.
Speaking of wheel effects, I'd throw in Whispering Madness as it can be used multiple times thanks to its cipher ability.
I'd also switch out your Ashiok with the WAR version of her.
Sadistic Sacrament can be real helpful against someone who runs Eldrazi titans.
Lastly, if your budget allows for it, you might want to throw in a Leyline of the Void for good graveyard hate, which you can't have too much of.
There's plenty of other cards I can list but I don't want to deviate too much from what your commander really wants to do, which is punish opponents for drawing cards.

Great concept. I’m curious to see the primer. My recommendations: Duskmantle Guildmage combos with Mindcrank for the win. We will want to avoid fueling graveyard decks such as Muldrotha and Gitrog, so Leyline of the Void may be in order. Also, perhaps consider a few blue wheel effects. I’ve always loved Sygg. I run him from time to time in my Legacy Fish deck for consistent card draw.

SynergyBuild, at first I just read the title and replied.
I just read the rest of it and I do have a different card. My card is Vampire Nighthawk.
That card amazed me. I knew very lil about magic at this time. Lifelink and deathtouch were awesome to me and spawned a frenzy in me. Wanting to know all the best creatures with deathtouch and lifelink. This was before I started playing edh. The first edh deck I built was Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet. I had built it with vampire tribal in mind (inspired by the vampire nighthawk), it was so much fun. My first combo was Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood, and everyone hated it so much. At this time infinite combos in my group were frowned upon very much so. Another cool card I really liked in that deck was Painful Quandary they also really hated this card alot lol. At this time my group was new to cmdr and didn't understand the importance of card draw and removal, including myself. The next combos I assembled in this deck before I took it apart was Bloodchief Ascension and Mindcrank, then Sanguine Bond and Blood Tribute. The deck also contained Rise of the Dark Realms and Army of The Dammed . Again at the time was very reliable win condition cards.
