DrukenReaps covered the mana issue pretty well. The other suggestion that I'd make for a deck with this high of a CMC is that you probably want more ramp sources or mana rocks. Commander's Sphere and Dimir Signet are both great here. You might also consider replacing Temple of the False God with a basic. You're really color-intensive and don't have a lot of land ramp, so it's at high risk of not actually doing much good in this deck.

To expand a little on narrowing the tribes... I don't think you necessarily have to cut down what tribes are in your deck. However, if you aren't running at least 25 creatures of a tribe, tribal support cards like Crucible of Fire and Door of Destinies are simply bad. You frequently have to take a turn off to play them, so if they're not going to do some reasonable work right away, they're probably worse than a basic land. Kindred Dominance is going to hit so much of your own stuff that you're likely better off playing something like Languish, Crux of Fate or Blasphemous Act instead.

Along those lines, given your high average CMC, loading up on more reasonably-cheap board wipes is probably a good idea. If it's going to take you a while to get going, being able to control the board in the early game is really important. If your opponent has a field full of elves, slamming Butcher of Malakir or Stormsurge Kraken without clearing the board first isn't going to save you.

As for a few cards that you might consider cutting:

What are you looking for in the way of suggestions?

One of my favorite mill combos is Ghost Quarter + Archive Trap. Then you can replace Shriekgeist with Jace's Phantasm for a good blocker in the air.

I am attempting to figure a way to use Mindscour Dragon but no luck yet.

Jace, Memory Adept would also work awesome in this deck. His 0 ability causes target player to discard 10 cards which helps with the mill ability. His way better than the newest Jace. Blue Sun's Zenith, Mindscour Dragon, Ugin's Insight, Thought Reflection, Tome Scour, Monastery Siege, Jace's Erasure. Those are cards I use in my Oloro, Esper Control/Mill deck. Hope this helps some.
