@ AaronEchoes Not sure that I understand your path of logic of how anafenza synergizes with odric?
@ Skulloelegy I am not too concerned about building around odric as he is not the commander and I rather build around that. concerted effort is a great addition. thank you ! As far as your going wide suggestions... Simply put, I don't feel they would do enough in this deck/build. If I were to go token then for sure and commit to the going wide platform to take greater advantage of etb effects etc.

If you are trying to slim down the deck, try removing anything that seems out of place for the goal you have in mind for the deck. Since you are trying to make a self-mill deck, try removing some of the cards that don't work all that well towards that goal. Cards such as Grotesque Mutation -might have a place in another deck, but right now it's a sub-par card that doesn't add much to the synergy. Next you want to consider each card individually, and remove cards that don't work as well as others or are inefficient uses of mana. Things like Nimble Innovator and Mnemonic Wall fit that description pretty well, as they work towards the goal, but for a cost that isn't worth it value-wise (Nimble Innovator is pretty much paying 2 mana to draw a card, which isn't great). While doing this, however, you need to be careful not to take out so many of a certain card type that you never have them when you need them. It may be worth leaving a bad card in just to have a card that does a specific job.
All that said, I would probably take out the creatures that draw cards when they die. You want to be getting your win condition as quick as possible, and having cards that need to be in play for a few turns before you get the value out of them doesn't seem like a great way to stay ahead of your opponent.
As for the deck itself, the idea is awesome, and I can't wait to give it a shot.

My wife also just recommended Oran-Rief, the Vastwood for land. It combos with Selvala pretty well - because you can increase the power of your creatures by 1 the turn they hit the field, you can net 1 extra mana with Selvala. In this way, the Vastwood 'pays' for itself - even though you aren't tapping it for mana that turn, you still get 1 mana in the end.

Pathbreaker Ibex is one other option. It doesn't combo with Selvala directly, and it takes a turn of being on the field before you can swing with it, but once you can it is essentially an Overwhelming Stampede on legs.

It doesn't work for my Amonkhet Minotaurs deck.
I have changed that deck many times, and the algorithm changes every time I do, even with exactly the same lands each time.
It's gotten to the point where I have thrown an off-colour land in, that I can choose to ignore.
Anyway, your deck plays well.
+1 from me
It beats mine Game 1 just about every time.
Game 2 I go full Control, kill all of your Creatures as soon as I can, then start my attacks in the late game.
If you get Hazoret the Fervent out in Game 2 it causes me problems, unless I get rid of it with Oblivion Strike, make the God unable to block by Exerting Ahn-Crop Crasher, or Trample damage over the top of the God.

Had to remove top because it is banned in legacy now :( But I think the deck still functions well.

heh, i've got a mono black deck also. you can check it out if ya want, it's called The Abyss. there are quite a few staples in it and a few obscure but good cards, maybe youll find something you like but ill leave you with a strong inexpensive suggestion, Beacon of Unrest

It's been a long time coming. Now that Top has been banned, I think that the door will be opened for other non-Miracles control decks to grow in Legacy. Now, whether or not Terminus will still see play in the format remains to be seen, and I'm excited to see if Miracles still plays miracle cards after losing their best repeatable card selection.

clayperce- I've run my list at Modern night 3-4 times and am still undefeated with it if you want to take a look (we only get 7-10 players every week fwiw). It's pretty stock except I run bolts in the main instead of Bonfires, but that can be changed depending on what's better in your meta.

Have you considered a Rogue's Passage? So much of your stuff already gets Trample that it might be redundant. Then again, it could also let you sneak a big creature in past an army of blockers to win the game. Just a thought.

If you want to cut legendaries in the humans deck, cut Thalia, Heretic Cathar. She is the most expensive one and not as impactful as the others.
Your Vampires look ok to me. If you want a legendary for them too, Olivia, Mobilized for War is the way to go.
Any game between these two decks will be asymetric. Vampires can win faster, but humans will win virtually all games that take longer than ~10 rounds. That doesn't imply one deck is better, just keep it in mind when evaluating them against each other.

Sacrifice abilities combined with Athreos, God of Passage and Pia's Revolution would work if you ran b/r/w enchantment deck. Player would have to choose between losing 6 life, or have creatures like Grim Guardian trigger it's own constellation, or if you sacrificed other enchantments, they would trigger their own constellation and other constellations the next turn. i.e Grim Guardian on the board, sacrifice Underworld Coinsmith play UC next turn, trigger both life gain and life drain.
Long story short, I don't think (only think) that sacrifices have any practical utility in your deck.Really cool concept though 1 upvote from me! Check out my own decks if you found this helpful, may have some enchantment inspiration for you!

Sorry I couldn't get back to you last night. Those eldrazi cards are HILLARIOUS! Thy cost a litle too much mana to put in here, but I could put them in the commander version.

Pal00ka, I actually chose to used starved Rusalka specifically because it's a creature. I can search it out with cards like Primal Command, which I can't do with Evolutionary Leap. I don't have to tap it for its ability, either, which makes it better than Plaguemaw Beast in a few situations. If you've got a suggestion for what else to cut, though, I think Evolutionary Leap would be a nice addition. Also, Rishkar is already in the deck, and you're right; he really pulls his weight.
Thanks for the suggestions!

I understand you might want to stay simic for flavor, but splashing red for Fling might be worth it. The ability to attack with pummeler and have them reveal a combat trick or Unlicensed Disintegration and in response Fling pummeler at their face for 20+ damage would be insane

That's what i originally thought as well, but the deck searching ability of Sliver Overlord makes him worth it. With him I can just grab Sliver Hivelord, as well as whatever other sliver I need at any given moment.

More generally, you are virtually running an infect deck, in infect colours, without infect. Infect works because it only needs 10 damage (poison) but you still need to deliver the full 20 and cards like Pyroclasm exist...

Velkaarn, I've thought about Void Winnower. Being on the receiving end of it before, I find him a little too "unfun" to play against. Certainly a powerful creature though.
RUST-O, glad you like. World Breaker is on my list of cards to get. Zegana I could also see going in here. With elder deep-fiend, I've had him in a different deck before and found him a bit too expensive for his effect even with the emerge cost. He is certainly on theme though.
JaysomeDecks, really like your infinite build. Looks deadly to play against. I only have one copy of Seedborn Muse and she is in my Rhys deck where I think she is more needed. I could see myself adding awakening though. Kydele and Thrasios would go bonkers with all that untapping.
For cuts, I see myself cutting trygon predator for world breaker. What other cuts should I make?
