Like what you've got going on here! Atemsis is a great commander! I definitely recommend adding some mana rocks for ramp, so you can get him out a little faster, though. Having your commander out as early as possible is always a huge advantage, along with playing higher mana costed spells early.

Mind Stone, Hedron Archive, Dreamstone Hedron, Commander's Sphere - some standard ramping rocks for budget decks. They accelerate you and you can sacrifice them for cards later in the game if you need to.

Sol Ring - The obligatory Commander mana rock

Everflowing Chalice - Very flexible mana rock that can ramp you early game, or ramp hard late game.

Spell Swindle - This is just a little pricey for a budget deck at almost $3, but its such a cheeky counterspell that can completely turn a game in your favor.

Sphere of the Suns, Star Compass, Prismatic Lens - 2 Drop rocks that can get you a little further ahead early, but might be dead or useless later

Some additional cards that might be worth looking at:

AEtherspouts - This card is brutal against the aggro player in your playgroup. If they swing in with 5 creatures, then they will likely only be drawing those creatures back for the next 5 turns instead of new cards.

Empyrial Plate - This card can make for a nice backup strategy. If you can suit up your Commander with this deal commander damage, it doesn't matter if your Commander's effect whiffs.

Sphinx's Tutelage - Not necesarily an amazing card. But its a cheeky way to deal with other mono color decks sometimes.

I can definitely think of more later, but these might be a nice start to add. I'd say definitely focus on building up by adding ramp artifacts so you can guarantee your commander coming down earlier than turn 6.

Sure thing Rasaru. Your list is actually very good.. the only things I would definitely take out are Sphere of the Suns and Careful Consideration . I think Chakram Retriever and Slagwurm Armor would be good swaps for those.

It is challenging to win with mill. But it is also way more rewarding to win with an underdog strategy than with something everybody knows is strong. I say if you like mill, then go for it. Your build definitely looks like it'll nab its fair share of Ws anyway.

There are so many mana rocks that are better than Manalith that not one single copy should ever get used regardless of budget. The most obvious replacement is Sol Ring which is the most played card in EDH but the signets and talismans were already mentioned, the diamond cycle, ie: Charcoal Diamond , Fellwar Stone , Mind Stone , Thought Vessel , even Star Compass and Sphere of the Suns are better by virtue of being only 2 CMC to cast.
At 3 CMC you have: Mana Geode [scrys], Commander's Sphere [draws card], Pristine Talisman [gains life], Heraldic Banner [anthem], Spinning Wheel [taps creature], Vessel of Endless Rest [reclaims card for yourself or buries a card an opponent is recurring from their graveyard back into their library], Crystal Ball [scrys], guild Keyrune and Cluestone cycles [animate or card draw], Darksteel Ingot [at least it is indestructible], Seer's Lantern [inferior version of the Crystal Ball], not to mention much better ones like Chromatic Lantern , Worn Powerstone or Coalition Relic .
