Also let me know if it's a good idea that I have two of each Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger and Kozilek, Butcher of Truth. I look at other decks and they only have one of each. Thanks.

It ramps into an infinite combo. Torment of Hailfire is for emergencies and Kozilek, Butcher of Truth is only for reshuffle. damage is meant to be from Ebony Charm or infinite mill from Praetor's Grasp or even Manabond into torment with Vedalken Orrery

Yes because for Kozilek, Butcher of Truth's ability to trigger he has to be placed in a graveyard. he will remain in that graveyard before he gets priority and can then shuffle your graveyard into your library.

If killed or milled, is Kozilek, Butcher of Truth ( or old Ulamog, for that matter ) in the graveyard long enough for Geth, Lord of the Vault's instant speed ability to be used in response to steal him?

Hey KeroroLulu. Haha, I can comment here instead. No worries about that crazy forum. Anyways, running 32 lands before is pretty much unthinkable. For decks with low CMC count (about 2.7), you could maybe get away with running 34 lands, but you'd have to balance with any mana rocks/dorks. The rule of thumb in EDH is to start with 40 lands and for every two non-land cards that give you mana, take out a land. This way, you would be able to see where you are missing. It's a generalized idea, but it's a method that won't hurt you.

I do recommend putting some eldrazi creatures like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre to recycle your cards in the graveyard into your deck to keep abusing your commander's ability.

Daedalus19876 I'll +1 as often as I can! This deck is awesome.

I can't think of anything in particular that you haven't already covered, it's pretty exhaustive as it is. From what i can tell, you've covered must-haves, budget alternatives, win-con breakdowns, synergies, etc.

In my experience, albeit with a budget version of this deck, I've had trouble against control, but I think I need to improve as a player in general. I tend to get greedy and go wheel-crazy once Locust God is out.

In my opinion, Laboratory Maniac is probably the riskiest win-con. I would stress that anyone going for a win with him should have two blue mana and a counterspell ready to fire off against an opponent's Stifle or Snapback. That, or a discard outlet to get Kozilek, Butcher of Truth into the graveyard in a pinch. But like I said before, I'm 100% sure you covered that already, so this is merely a reminder.

How relevant is Jace, the Mind Sculptor in your experience?

Sorry my comments are all over the place, I'm basically at a point where my next cards to buy for this deck are the most expensive ones so I want to make sure I make the right investments!

Earthquake and fault line are both traps, they look good on paper, but at the end of the day, playing this you'll likely not be the highest life total, so they end up doing nothing but putting you closer to death. better cards to spend mama on are Sandstone Oracle and Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, big creatures to fallback on, comes with a new huge grip of cards.
