Me and my homies (who are non-existent) ignore the less than four lines mandate for NWO compliance.

This would read more clearly if the two sentences were in the other order.

Followed Alex's suggestion

You're kinda able to get away with it because quite a lot of those words are signalled by visionary.

But yeah, thematically this is simple enough. "Semi-scry, or super-scry 2". If you really did need to simplify; you could maybe:

Scry 2 then draw a card.
Visionary - Mill up to 1.

Which does fit, but is both slightly better and is actually harder to understand. So yeah, while this has a red flag; I'm pretty sure it would get through.

On power level, I will point out that Sleight of Hand is a pretty uninspiring 1-mana common sorcery. (Hm, though apparently it was reprinted at common. Weird.) On the other end of the bracket, Discovery // Dispersal is played in plenty of decks that don't have both colours of mana for the Dispersal half, so a {1}{u} Discovery at common I think would be fine and pretty interesting.
