Here are some other cards you might want to consider trying out! Helm of Awakening, Well of Ideas, Horn of Greed, Anvil of Bogardan, Otherworld Atlas, Prosperity, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Jester's Mask, Horn of Plenty

Yes that's how it will work. The number of cards drawn by each player is based on the total paid by everyone, not how much they paid individually. It's essentially a Prosperity that anyone can get in on to make the effect more powerful.

I'm not the utmost expert on mill decks, though I've seen plenty of them on this site for easy reference.
First off, there are definite infinite combos for the theme, but I don't know them all because I prefer not to use them. However, one that I do know is Arcanis the Omnipotent + Laboratory Maniac + Mind Over Matter . That's more for a self-mill deck, and generally runs Thassa's Oracle with other infinite combos.
Other than that, here's a short list of things I can think of that are missing from your list:
Blue doesn't have much removal, and relies on counterspelling to cover that category. However, in a mill deck, cards like Anchor to the Aether and Forced Retreat can act like creature removal. On a similar subject, Memory Lapse is a good, cheap counter for mill decks, though arguably better in multicolored decks.
Sphinx's Tutelage, Teferi's Tutelage and Psychic Corrosion are really good for mill, especially if you add things like Windfall, Jace's Archivist, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Gadwick, the Wizened, Teferi's Ageless Insight, Folio of Fancies and Prosperity in there, as well as synergizing with cards like Brainstorm, Visions of Beyond, Ponder, etc.
Other cards you may consider would include Maddening Cacophony, Keening Stone, Increasing Confusion and Telemin Performance. Also, High Tide as the best possible choice for ramp in blue, especially if you want to set off an effective Brain Freeze (which I think would be better off in a deck that was specifically designed to cast Storm spells, rather than a straightforward mill deck).
Sorry for the amazingly long and complicated response, haha. Also, I didn't take the time to check how many of my suggestions were already on your list, so I apologize if I did that.

Pretty good list for that budget, but there’s 1 card here I can’t support. Throw out Prosperity and put in Minds Aglow , it’s 100% of the Time better. I mean opponents won’t pay any mana, so no upside there. But let’s say you want everyone to draw 10, that’s 11 mana with prosperity. It gets countered and your turn is over. With minds aglow you just pay 1, if it’s countered you only lose 1. Once the spell starts resolving you pay the additional 10 but at this point nobody can counter it anymore. I play Xyris myself and trust me it makes a difference when your turn isn’t over then. My list is just a bit faster and has more consistent turn 4 wins

Well the decks goal isn't to mill. It wins with the cards Viseling , Iron Maiden , Ebony Owl Netsuke , and Black Vise . I want my opponents to draw as much as possible so they have a lot of cards in there hand for the damage, so I don't run Narset, Parter of Veils .

Cephalid Illusionist + Nomads en-Kor is a neat combo but its not my favorite since they doesn't really do anything for you besides when you put the two together. I'm also not a huge fan of Laboratory Maniac because he doesn't do anything on his own and we have better versions of his effect. Jace, Wielder of Mysteries is definitely still playable but Thassa's Oracle 's ETB trigger is just so reliable that you don't really need the redundancy IMO.
If your plan is to deck yourself and win with Thassa's Oracle, I'd highly recommend picking up a Mind Over Matter to combo with Kwain, Itinerant Meddler or Temple Bell . Its a heckin' powerful card and on the Reserved List, so I'd pick one up now before it spikes like a lot of Reserved List cards have been doing lately.
I also see you're running Hullbreacher and Smothering Tithe which pair excellently with cards like Prosperity , Minds Aglow , Skyscribing , Fascination and even Folio of Fancies . This is the primary combo I use in my own Kwain deck! You dump a bunch of mana into drawing everyone X cards and get 3 times X Treasure back to dump into the NEXT Draw X Cards spell so you can chain them together bigger and bigger. Then you can win with Thassa's Oracle , mill everyone out with Fascination or Folio of Fancies , or my personal favorite, just force the game into a Draw by drawing out everyone's decks simultaneously with a big Draw X or a huge Windfall . But even without comboing off, all the Draw X spells are far more useful on their own than Cephalid Illusionist and Nomads en-Kor .
Tidal Barracuda is also a fun group huggy for your opponent's that works like a Leyline of Anticipation for you as well but also keeps your opponents from interfering when you try to combo off on your turn.
Hope this helps! Check out my own decklist if you like! I focus a LOT on playing a neutral political game. Wizzardrix (Kwain, Itinerant Meddler)

I feel like unless you are confident that you are going to maintain a hand of more than 7 then maybe consider swapping out Spellbook might be a good idea
Not sure how useful Patron of the Orochi will be especially being at such a high cmc
Reforge the Soul only triggers the miracle cost if it is the card you draw for turn so you would have to pay the full CMC if you drew into it from a wheel. Thus, could save a few bucks by swapping it out for a different wheel card.
Nadir Kraken might not pull that much weight since you're theoretically going to be creating a ton of snakes and drawing a bunch of cards. Plus I'm not sure if you'll end up wanting to spend the mana to add the +1 counter and make a tentacle
Bag of Holding $0.35 instead of losing all of your cards to wheels, you can actually get them back later lol
Second Harvest $1.29 2GG to double all your creature tokens... could be useful? could also just do with another wheel lol
Soul of New Phyrexia $4 Might be a lot of mana to run but if you have ashnod's alter out then you should have no issue sacking three tokens to give everything indestructible. Just one more board wipe protection
Rhythm of the Wild $3 can either give them haste or make them a lil bit bigger
Ogre Battledriver $0.6 buffs snakes upon ETB and gives them haste; if this is already out and you wheel...OOF
Horizon Chimera $0.25 padding your life total isn't a bad idea; granted you are likely going to be aggressive affff
Geier Reach Sanitarium $2.5 Might not be worth it but having a little something-something on a land is hard to deal with and could help in a pinch
Dragon Mage $0.25
Minds Aglow $2.5
Burning Inquiry $1 One red mana to get 9 snake bois and might get some good stuff out of someone else's hand
Game Plan $0.39 Heftier side of things at 6 CMC but everyone draws 7 instead of perhaps the same amount they discarded. Plus everyone refills their library so any graveyard shenanigans gets shut down and you don't risk milling yourself for a little bit longer
