Hey, nice to hear somebody likes mill in EDH! Not to blatantly advertise my deck, but it's one of my four decks which I constantly update every time a new set comes out and whatever, so take a look at it if you want for some advice: "Library.exe has stopped working".
Start from this viewpoint: in EDH, to win, you'd have to mill from 100 (if you are 1 vs 1) to 300 (4 player match) cards to win. It's a huge lot, so your milling has to be reusable, versatile and impacting.
From my experience, since you don't run graveyard recursion for instants/sorceries and you don't run a spellslinger deck anyways, I'd suggest to cut cards like Archive Trap , Mind Funeral , Shared Trauma : these are one use, so either they're super good (take out an opponent kind of good) or they're inefficient.
Hedron Crab is useless in EDH, for real, don't spend that money, it's not worth it (even though it is in modern). Same goes for Jace's Phantasm / Lord of the Void / Oona, Queen of the Fae , which for different reasons don't provide enough for their mana investment. Yeah, 1 mana 5/5 flyer, and now? Mill 5?
Not to mention, you will never ever successfully cast Enter the Infinite : if you really just want to combo out, even a Diabolic Tutor would be a better choice. 12 mana is hardly achievable without mana ramp.
I've noticed a general lack of card draw and this is really dangerous. Consider tweaking this.
From what it seems, I'd say you trusted edhrec.com too much, and again I'd invite you to take a look at my deck above. I play in 4 players multiplayer matches and trust me, there are many other useful cards you didn't consider and many others which are not worth including. Take your time, and once you're ready, tell me and I'll come back to check your changes!

Hey Spirits, so yeah all the combos you mentioned that I have I took directly from your decktech. I simply cannot do some of your super fast combos so I looked at your alternate combos section and essentially went for the ones that have a lot of the same cards involved such as: Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Adarkar Valkyrie , and Goblin Bombardment and sort of just ran with those. So the reason why I like Mark of Fury is because of its reusability. I believe one of my buddies in my playgroup uses 1 or 2 ( Anguished Unmaking & Assassin's Trophy ) cards for instant speed, target permanent removal so I think it being in danger until EOT isn't too bad, and with Grand Abolisher out, its totally safe.
I use Reliquary Tower just in case I find myself with a boat load of cards and not wanting to discard them; but perhaps I will consider cutting it.
Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds are the same card with different names. I only run 1 just to be certain that at least by the 2nd turn I should have most of my colors. I have 1 of the fetches in there ( Bloodstained Mire , but Arid Mesa and Marsh Flats are just outa my magic budget at the moment.
Your right about Reflecting Pool , honestly should pick one of those up before they go any higher. I do wanna wait to see what gets reprinted in Modern Horizons before I make any big purchases though.
And yeah Leyline of the Void is great... but WAY to pricey for me right now lol.
And yes... Angel of Jubilation scares me. I think I may play test her a couple of times and see if i can balance and control when she is on the field and when I need to do the things she won't allow. and I believe your right with how it works. it WOULD shut of things like fetches, Necropotence , and Phyrexian Reclamation . but yeah I think shocklands are fine because it is part of it resolving, not an activation cost.
Yes Angel of Despair is better but not against a recursion deck like Meren of Clan Nel Toth . Essentially I need to prevent him from sacking his stuff to make us sack ours; or exile it once the threat has entered the battlefield so it STAYS GONE. going to the graveyard is just not good enough.... Honestly, it's kind of why i Wanna Lord of the Void . Because not only do i get to take some of his stuff, but I'm also exiling his stuff in the process.
Mother of Runes IS great, I considered her for a moment. But much of what I'm up against is untargetted removal. where IIIIII am being forced to sack MY permanents or the board is being wiped. it's brutal lol. So i ended up cutting her.
Hall of the Bandit Lord is on my "to buy" list but... too $$$.
I was 50/50 on Rakdos the Defiler . It seems decent but if im in for the long haul for the game, I dont wanna be sacking my angels and dragons cuz of him.
Zealous Conscripts are right on the cusp of staying in. I just need to figure out what to cut.
Thanks for the help with this. you have been a TREMENDOUS help :)

He's definitely on the cusp, I spend life like it's mana, so it's comfortable having some lifegain. Definitely Baneslayer Angel is getting close to cut as well. We'll see what new A/D/D come with War.
I found 22 A/D/D the buoyancy level, less than that, a high % of time you connect with a Kaalia of the Vast attack with nothing to play for free.
It's a balance, trying to get better consistency on Win-Con below turn 5, it's been a tough barrier to break though.
weezel been a great help playtesting some of the cards, since I haven't had too much time lately outside my Budget commander league 2x a week to play.
Damnation I need more indestructible (like Archangel Avacyn Flip), Teferi's Protection needs Split second or to be . I'm probably replacing Terminate with Gamble , and I've picked up a Hatred to try, but then I need MORE Lifelink. Hatred + Lifelink creature is Superstar, so he won't come out if Hatred is in.

Treachery and Slave of Bolas are funny cards, Kheru Mind-Eater , Lord of the Void , Thief of Sanity are some value creatures you can play around with. Oh! Not to mention Acquire and Bribery as well xD

Thada Adel, Acquisitor is great at stealing other people's Sol Rings, amongst other potentially desirable artifacts. Wrexial, the Risen Deep is basically unblockable with Intimidate, Islandwalk, and Swampwalk.
Fireshrieker allows you to double up on a creature's combat damage trigger, and it can be tutored by Deadeye Quartermaster , who can also help you grab any of the equipment cards in your deck. Another good equipment to consider is Bloodforged Battle-Axe .

What about Rakdos the Defiler and Rakdos, the Showstopper ? They are pretty decent demons, and fit the theme of demon tribal very well. Lord of the Void is just a blast to play as well, and Demon of Wailing Agonies can be good if played well.
Deck looks pretty cool!
