These are all awesome suggestions! Thanks for taking the time.
I'm on a bit of a spending freeze right now, so some of these will have to wait ( Rings of Brighthearth and Damnation for sure), but I think Illusionist's Bracers is definitely going to have to go in soon, and probably a couple of those creatures. I like the idea of the Twilight Prophet and the Doom Whisperer combo.
Thanks again!

Mortarpod_Blues on UW Petitioner Self Mill...Reanimator Combo?

In no particular order, I've got some suggestions you might have a look at. Some cards are just to round out the deck and give you a little more defensive capability, and others are to fully lean-into the self-mill theme you've got going. In particular, you might want to put in more blink effects so you can tap your Petitioners more than once per turn/round.

Still a super freaking cool concept! It turns what the card was MEANT to do on its head, and makes it that much more potent (it's easier to mill just one person-- yourself-- than it is to try and handle all your opponents at once instead).

Hi! Some ideas. Lands: Temple of Malice , Path of Ancestry . Artifacts: Rings of Brighthearth or Illusionist's Bracers ( Olivia Voldaren likes it for sure). Card advantage: Champion of Dusk , Twilight Prophet + Doom Whisperer (to get City Blessing is not a big problem in EDH and these two cards are great together). Creatures: Markov Blademaster , Falkenrath Marauders . Removal: Bedevil . Board wipe: Damnation .

Looks like a mean deck... did Black Market ever worked well for you? I find it hard to make use of it. If you ever had to replace it in its mana ramping role, perhaps a little Doubling Cube ?

Also could be janky, but Rings of Brighthearth and Illusionist's Bracers are fun!

Anyway, nice deck +1, and have a good day

I would say more untappers and effect doublers. Fatestitcher or other untapper with Illusionist's Bracers will let you draw your entire library in a single turn, and if you have Vedalken Orrery , Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir or Leyline of Anticipation you can do it before your upkeep to dig for Laboratory Maniac and flash him for the win. Or just put pingers that deal dmg on tap, and tap-untap them infinitely. So much potential.

I would definitely add these cards: Phyrexian Processor , Phyrexian Rebirth , Slime Molding (better than it looks since paying 11 mana will give you a 3 mana 10/10 each turn after), Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage (populate mana-sink late game), Parallel Evolution , Illusionist's Bracers (populate twice, for the same price!), Acidic Slime (just an awesome green staple), Sakura-Tribe Elder , Phantom General , Angel of Sanctions (INFINITE REMOVAL EACH TURN!), Beast Within (staple removal in green), Budoka Gardener / Dokai, Weaver of Life (mana acc and lategame big tokens in one)

I would consider these also: Worldspine Wurm , Parallel Lives (awesome, but a bit $$$), Rootborn Defenses (stops a board-wipe and pops), Trostani's Judgment (high cmc, but good value), Overrun (probably wins you the game if you have a few creatures out), Hydra Broodmaster , Austere Command (wipes opponents' boards, but a bit $$$), Elspeth, Sun's Champion , Elspeth Tirel (both Elspeths have great board wipes for token decks), Oblivion Ring , Yavimaya Elder , Ajani Goldmane / Ajani, Caller of the Pride (both have great synergy with big lifegains), Baloth Cage Trap (P.S you can play this and populate as combat trick!), Beast Attack (the flashback makes this a good comeback-card in case of board wipe and you need to get the pop-engine going), Blade Splicer (very powerful early-mid game)

I would 100% cut these cards: Take Heart , Centaur Healer , Healer's Hawk , Parhelion Patrol , Candlelight Vigil , Conviction , Noble Purpose , Flight of Equenauts , Siege Wurm , Bounty of Might (no trample=hard to use)

I would also consider cutting these: Lone Rider  Flip, Sumala Woodshaper , Sunscorch Regent , Verdant Eidolon , Scatter the Seeds , Wake the Reflections , Ajani Unyielding

If you are running Heartstone you could also run Illusionist's Bracers for redundancy.
