If I have a Seeker of Skybreak and Mesmeric Orb on the battlefield, and exactly one Emrakul, the Aeons Torn in my library, and I play Shelldock Isle as my land for turn, I can, in response to the Hideaway trigger, mill myself infinitely until I get down to 4 cards in the library without hitting an Emrakul and getting a shuffle trigger. I can even handpick the other three cards involved by continuously milling until I see the other 56 cards of my deck outside of my library (and don't hit Emrakul).
So is it legal to explain the process to my opponent, show him my deck so he can be sure that I actually have the necessary cards, and then shortcut to that gamestate, assuming no interaction from either player?
That infinite combo doesn't allow you to describe the gamestate at the end of X iterations, so no you cannot do that.
If you do what you're trying, you'll likely be the receiver of a "slow play" violation.
Goth is right. There is a deck called the 4 horseman that does something similiar to this (I.E Mesmeric Orb to mill 3-4 Narcomoeba + Dread Return + some sort of win-con like Shaarum the Hegemon whilst shuffling Giant Floating Jellyfish of Doom to "recycle" their GY to prevent total self milling.
I think that slow play rule may be new, but either way it is a rule now saying NO to you and the deck I mentioned.
