Thanks for the suggestions, Aiding, it's much appreciated.
I actually think Contraband Kingpin is pretty important for the deck to be able to deal with aggro; as a 1/4 it can block basically all of the aggressive creature and most of them even when boosted by an Anthem effect and it doesn't just die to Lightning Bolt.
Similarly, I think you're underestimating Crystal Shard; it does a lot. It sort of blanks one of the opponent's lands, saves my creatures from removal or chump blocks, fulfils the requirement for revolt on Vengeful Rebel and gets repeated ETB triggers out of my creatures, which is important for grinding out victory in long games in a way that Vapor Snag can't replicate. That being said, I do think that 4 of them was too many, given how clunky they are in multiples.
Smother is a good suggestion, although I do think it's important to be able to kill higher CMC creatures because reanimator and Cloudpost decks are common occurrences, so I'll try out a split of Smother and Victim.
Skullclamp is banned in Legacy.

Glimmerpost, Cloudpost, Ancient Tomb are lands options to sol ring, in order to have it legacy legal.other options could be land searchers, since you want to go and find those tronlands, like Expedition Map
hope it helps. otherwise it looks a pretty sweet casual deck, obviousely.
if you want to add colored mana, you could look to add Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and a few swamps, allowing you to play some black removal (never a bad plan), tap your Eye of Ugin for mana and play Dark Ritual
Another option to reduce your curve a bit and make it more effective is to add Eldrazi Mimic that becomes huge when you cast some of your big bad boys, and one or two of the new ones (Matter Reshaper or Thought-Knot Seer), that are big enough for most of the format and you can reliably drop them on turn two.

You can absolutely shit all over combo decks in Legacy with 12-Post. The key is to play 4 Chalice of the Void and either Trinisphere or Thorn of Amethyst. This requires Ancient Tomb and City of Traitors, on top of the usual 12 posts. Even an Eldrazi list will be lacking without City of Traitors and Ancient Tomb.
Wastelands can further strain your opponent's mana base. Combined with Lodestone Golem and Chalice of the Void, your opponent won't be able to cast spells if they don't have Force of Will or Daze on the spot.
I play 12-Post MUD myself. The hardest matchups are against fair decks like Shardless BUG and Miracles.
While City of Traitors and Chalice of the Void are expensive, no doubt, they're on the cheaper side of Legacy staples. They're certainly cheaper than trying to jump into the format with Underground Sea! I would at least get some Ancient Tombs before you jump into FNMs or even build the rest of the deck. Your land base would look something like:
Your sideboard looks fine, except for the Glacial Chasms. Walking Ballista, Ratchet Bomb, or Spatial Contortion seem like stronger options. Silent Arbiter works wonders as well. If you're worried about the Show and Tell matchup, another Duplicant or Spine of Ish Sah can go far.

Well they are 100% right about 60 card decks.
Modern Ramp is lacking a lot of pieces and modern control has too few answers for the wide range of the format. Legacy might have more stuff you want such as Cloudpost

If you're building in a format that doesn't care about bans/restrictions then you might want to switch to Tron lands Urza's Mine, Urza's Power Plant, Urza's Tower and the Locus lands Cloudpost Glimmerpost and then specific land fetches like Expedition Map and land copiers like Vesuva and Thespian's Stage for even more mana. The only thing is it's all colorless so you'd either have to drop green and just use Eldrazi and Artifacts or this isn't that big of a help.

I have not yet had the opportunity to test this against other no-banlist decks, but I do play a very similar list in Legacy. As far as mid-range lists go, this is king. A similar build to this is why Cloudpost is banned in Modern. I use Moment's Peace in Legacy against Infect decks, so if you think Infect to be rife, then Fog and similar effects should be mainboarded.
When it comes to drawing into fatties, that's what Eye of Ugin and Green Sun's Zenith is for. I haven't updated this list in awhile, but with a bit of tweaking, you could make Traverse the Ulvenwald a viable card here as well.
