CMC 10 Planeswalker? How about a Phyrexian Ashiok? That's where they want to be anyways
Ashiok the Interloper
Legendary Planeswalker - Ashiok
+2: Exile the top card of each library.
0: Until end of turn, you may play up to one card an opponent owns in exile without paying its mana cost.
-4: Create a 2/2 blue and black Specter creature token with flying and "Whenever this creature deals combat damage to a player, that player exiles the top card of their library."
-24: Exile each opponent's library.
Yeah, I think this would be very fun, but not OP at all. Yeah, you get a Nightveil Specter/Thief of Sanity with the -4, but it's a very expensive walker and without adequate set up, the 0 doesn't do much. The +2 isn't really going to do much without some sort of payoff, but it does help the 0 and reaching the ult, which is basically an instant game-winner.

What about this dude, Nightveil Specter, seems another good way to trash your opponent's game plan.

Uuuh, what is the goal with this deck? Constantly chaining together equal CMC cards over and over won't really tutor anything, and a graveyard strategy would seem pretty hard in PDH. Speaking of which, you have several illegal cards in this list: Aura of Dominion, Pemmin's Aura, Baleful Strix, Nightveil Predator, Nightveil Specter, Siren of the Silent Song, Lightning Greaves, and Swiftfoot Boots.

An option to do with a mill deck in replacement of vampiric tutor as an option is Scheming Symmetry, mainly as giving your opponent a card on top of their deck isn't going to matter if you mill it. Also works with archive trap for a turn one 13 cards milled.
Also Nightveil Specter fits well.

Here are my thoughts:
Out: Thief of Sanity, Nightveil Specter, Duskmantle Guildmage, Fact or Fiction, Fraying Sanity
The Thief of Sanity and Nightveil Specter both require combat damage to get the effect and you have a lot of other creatures doing the same things. I know it is a theme of the deck, and I'm not saying to take both of them out, but consider one or both depending on the other cards recommended. Duskmantle Guildmage requires a lot of mana and just feels kinda weak. Fact or Fiction is a good card but I think you would be better served with other options. Fraying Sanity only targets a specific player and you have no way to reset. I know it allows you to target "that player" but something just feels off about it.
Consider: Geth, Lord of the Vault, Archaeomancer, Psychic Corrosion, Memory Erosion, Sphinx's Tutelage, Tormod's Crypt, Trepanation Blade and Elixir of Immortality.
Let me know what you think.

I'm currently working on an esper millish exile deck using
Kaya, Orzhov Usurper +1 to exile, -5 to deal damage from exile.
Ashiok, Nightmare Muse +1 for exile, -7 to cast exiled cards.
Ashiok, Dream Render to exile and empty graveyards (voids escape/flashback)
Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver +2 exile, -10 to empty hand/graveyard. -10 is tough without proliferate.
Etrata, the Silencer unlockable damage plus alt wincon.
If you decide to make a separate Nightveil Specter deck consider esper and use Athreos, Shroud-Veiled love the idea of putting coin counters on their creatures, then getting to use them against my opponent when they die.

I run a similar deck that isn't disgustingly far off in price from yous
