Each player draws X cards.

McToters Hey, thanks for all the upvotes! I'm glad you seem to enjoy my decks.
That is not a combo I had considered. I'm only running Suture Priest of the three of them though. That 10 CMC cost on Storm Herd scares me off a bit, although any game that gets Smothering Tithe going generates plenty of mana. That could interact in an interesting way with Angel's Trumpet (another card I've considered but am not running currently) if Suture Priest isn't going to kill everyone immediately. That would require a pretty strong pillow fort situation to feel safe. Probably not going to include the Herd mostly because I would think that if I have the mana to cast it and win with that combo, then there's a pretty good chance I can get there with my Hippo Storm strategy anyway. If I did want to lean even more into pillow fort and include Angel's Trumpet, I'd probably find a slot for the Herd though.
Hive Mind however has my wheels spinning a bit. Probably not for this deck, but I love thinking about the amount of chaos this could introduce to the game. I decided that my philosophy for this deck is that everyone can draw all the cards and have all the lands they could want, but I don't want to share anything else. I wouldn't want to share my tutors or counterspells, or certainly Approach of the Second Sun. I love that Hive Mind doesn't even give you the option, you have to copy it. Imagine everyone drawing their entire deck by casting a large Prosperity... Now my imagination is piqued and I'm gonna start thinking about a deck that does nothing but cause chaos.
So again, thanks for all the upvotes, and indeed now for planting the seeds for my possible next deck!

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 .
