Brimaz fits better in curve as you already run 3x 4-drop walkers. Then to more thin the overcrowded 3 drop slot, I'd replace 2x Spectral Procession and one Raise the Alarm for 3x Zealous Persecution. And replace all Kataki, War's Wages with Revoke Existence or Disenchant for broader usage against threats.

Im not sure if Leyline of Sanctity is good in your sideboard. Your already really good against burn, and hand disruption doesnt affect you as much because your deck has so much redundancy. Even Scapeshift and Ad Nauseam can only do so much damage against you. Plus you have hand disruption against the combo matchups anyways. But i could see keeping 2 or so. I would suggest adding Rest in Peace for the Grixis decks and Dredge. Pithing Needle is a decent card overall. It can shut down fetchlands, Aether Vial, and troublesome planeswalkers. I think it can definately help your Tron matchup post sideboard. Vampire Hexmage also hoses planeswalkers but is more narrow. I like a second Sundering Growth over the Disenchant. Anguished Unmaking is a catch-all card that has little drawback in your deck, definately worth a try.
What does your local meta consist of? Maybe we could start from there. I hope this helps at least a little!

You're going to be going up against a lot of artifacts, that I know for sure. Rest in Peace will probably also come up at some point, so you'll want something to contend with that. Disenchant and Extirpate/Surgical Extraction will get rid of any of those threats. People are fond of using Stony Silence to stop artifacts. Those three/four cards would make a nice start to your sideboard. The rest is basically up to whatever you'll find that you're going up against on a regular basis.

Hey, I think you have a lot of the right pieces and that the list is really well-budgeted! If I may, I'd like to offer you a few suggestions.
Mainboard:I'd add 4 Soldier of the Pantheon (solid 1 drop) and 2-3 of either Consul's Lieutenant or Precinct Captain (both good aggressive first strikers that your opponent will have to deal with quickly). My personal experience with these cards has been excellent. I'd cut 1 Brave the Elements (having 2 in hand feels rather bad), your Elite Vanguard (Soldier of the Pantheon is entirely better), your Mardue Woe-Reaper (although this one might be okay, but would prefer more warriors), and your Imposing Sovereigns (overall feels a bit slow, with redundant effects). Obviously I'd look into Path to Exile over Journey to Nowhere, but if you are running Journey to Nowhere due to budget constraints I entirely understand. I'd also look into adding 2-3 Ghost Quarters to have the ability to mess with your opponent's manabase. Helps a lot against Tron and manlands.
Sideboard:As it stands, you currently have no reason to run Sundering Growth over Disenchant. If you are able to though, I'd shoot for Stony Silence over both of them. As for graveyard hate, I'd recommend Rest in Peace. While it doesn't redraw like Relic, it is a constant effect. The only thing that Grafdigger's Cage does better than it is turn off effects like Collected Company. I'd also go with Ranger of Eos over Make a Stand and 1 other card (maybe one of your many pieces of gravehate?). While make a stand looks pretty good at first, it is very impractical to just hold up 3 mana constantly to protect against board wipes. Using Ranger of Eos to recover from a wipe can be an excellent way to get back into the game.
Hope I could help out a bit! If you ever have any questions or need anything else, let me know. Good luck on your brew!

This is more speculative, but have you ever considered a planeswalker of some kind to help crew Heart of Kiran? Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas seems like it might be nice addition to dig for vehicles and "crew" them with his -1.

LANDS:Sweet. 2 Things. 1. That many Humans, you probably want Cavern$. 2. Much heavier black than white, so instead of 4/4 split, consider 5/3 (swamp/plains), or even 4/2/+2 Fetches. 6 Fetches would help your Fatal Pushes and reduce lands drawn. I would opt for 2 Bloodstained Mires or whichever black fetch is cheapest.
I too love the card Death Cultist, but it isn't as good as we want it to be. If you have all the black mana, Atheros, Zulaports & Death Cultist, your opponent will see what you are doing fairly easily and just pay 3 life once instead of playing into your 10 point life swing. This combo would be good if Theros didn't give an option, because the player will always choose what is best for them.
Viscera Seer is brutal. 3-4 no brainer. I somehow have not yet put one in my cube.
Blood Artist would be really fun next to Cutthroats.
Tidehollow Sculler is one of my favorite creatures that I don't play enough. It has your two devotion right there and due to it's wording can be abused with a sac outlet. Cast Sculler- etb trigger goes on stack- sac him in response- ltb trigger goes on stack. Stack resolves giving them back a card you haven't taken first, followed by permanently exiling a card from their hand.
Your sideboard better have a way to deal with Rest in Peace. Disenchant is the simplest option. You probably want a Path to Exile or 4 to deal with anything troublesome that Fatal Push can't touch. Like Iona.
4x Athreos, God of Passage
4x Bloodsoaked Champion
2x Cartel Aristocrat
2x Dutiful Attendant
2x Nantuko Husk
2x Qarsi Sadist
2x Xathrid Necromancer
4x Zulaport Cutthroat
3x Blood Artist
3x Viscera Seer

Focusing the deck around the mill strategy does seem practical. But, I must warn that you should also become concerned of Leyline of sanctity as a result as it will prevent Hedron Crab's effect. However, since Altar of the Brood doesn't target it should get around this. In this case the points you provide for Simian Spirit Guide do seem practical, the ability to perform a surprise "1 Mana" counter does seem rather appealing. Although, in this case you may wish to invest in some ability to cast it in the event you may require a chump blocker but I think you would be able to do without.
As for the sideboard, I would normally recommend Fracturing Gust vs. Affinity or Artifacts but it seems your landfall mana will be used to make the combo function and incapable of achieving acceleration. Thus, 2x Disenchant will work perfectly as it targets enchantments, such as Ghirapur AEther Grid. 2x Stony Silence will also be a boon as it will force affinity to side in their own enchantment hate, they will automatically assume you have it anyways.
For Leyline of Sanctity I would recommend it as a 3 of. I'm unsure how much discard you see in your meta, but a playset is usually excessive for sideboard. My personal rule of thumb is: 3x if you want to see it, 4x if you want to play multiples.
The deck also seems a bit light on Creature hate, thus, 2x Path to Exile should help you out against aggro lists that go big rather than wide. You could also consider Condemn as the mill strategy wouldn't care about life! This is a far better removal spell in this case than Path to Exile as it keeps your opponents off curve if they are short mana.
Better yet, due to the creature light nature of your deck you could get away with having some board wipes in your side, naturally Supreme Verdict as you could hold onto your combo until after you've cleared away all their elves of goblins.
I hope that this helps you with your sideboard! If your meta has any specific decks that are prevalent then I'd recommend finding a good hate card to fill the rest of your sideboard. Grand Abolisher seems like a solid choice vs. Control. If you've got any questions, just let me know!
