Too slow you say? I wonder how we can make it faster.
There are three copy effects available to you in Standard:
Standard is pretty fast right now with the best decks winning on turn 4. There are other combos for lower-tiered decks that win on turns 5-6.
In order for you to win with a mill strategy, you can combo to mill their entire deck in one shot, or you can grind them out over a few turns, all the while armed with removal/counterspell disruption in order to not let them get a foothold.
In theory, blue would allow you to do that. You could play a blue control game for some turns until you get the mana you need to copy a couple Startled Awake Flips. By that point, however, you may want to find a faster win condition.
I'm sure the deck is fun to play. I would like to make it fun and even more efficient at what it does!
So, if we multiply the copy effects, and look for other mill effects. The other mill cards in standard:
Cards that exile from the top of the library:
- The Eldrazi that have ingest
- Thought Harvester
- Dimensional Infiltrator
- Oblivion Sower
- Sire of Stagnation
- Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger
They're all pretty slow... So I'm still wondering how it can be made faster.

The moment you need a formular for calculating how many life you get:Ever wanted to really exaggerate with your lifegain?Following situation:
How do you calculate that now?
The formular is 2x * y * 5 where x is the number of Rhoxes overall and y the number of Rhoxes that came just in. 5 is the Toughness that Trostani needs to calculate your lifegain.
The first 6 Rhoxes give you 3.840 life.
The next 12 Rhoxes give you another 31.457.280 life.
And the last 36 Rhoxes give you 6,4851835e+18 life.
If this isn't enough for you, then even I can't help you any more...

So I'm willing to try Temple of the False God and by sheer coincidence I've been willing to put in Mirrorpool but I don't have enough source of colorless mana, i just hope Temple of the False God and Sol Ring would be enough.
Now for the hard part, which cards to cut, oh well, back to the drawing board XD

Also, 35 lands seems to be a bit too little. I run 37 lands (and two of them are Fetchlands) and still seem to be mana screwed sometimes. Why no Temple of the False God or Mirrorpool? Okay, for Mirrorpool, I understand that with only 15 creatures it's not really that effective (in my version I have 25 creatures and also a Second Harvest which is insane with this land) but Temple of the False God should totally be included.

Might I reccomend Knight of the Reliquary to you as well as a small package for it? She has so much utility in my own The Giant Hippie in the Sky deck. Things I'd reccomend to go with a Knight of the Reliquary package are:
Maze of Ith to keep your shields up.
Mirrorpool has a ton of utility and can clone some pretty ridiculous things.
Mikokoro, Center of the Sea gives you political sway and can help you refuel when you need to.
Thespian's Stage can clone any land, I've gotten a second Maze of Ith many a time off of it.
Glacial Chasm is a good 'in case of emergency' card for when the Saskia Infect player locks their jaw around your ankle.
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx can be win moar, but I've also had it be 'win just enough'.
Gavony Township provides a great anthem effect.
While we're at it, Deserted Temple lets you reuse all your utility lands! What's better than a Maze of Ith? Two. What's better than two? Two, but you can use one of them twice. It's also a real easy way to make more mana than you know what to do with with Nykthos.
And my last reccomendations are the hideaway lands in your colours, they provide real nice surprises should you meet their conditions, which shouldn't be too hard.
If you want more ways to get to your Reliquary Package, I'd suggest Sylvan Scrying and Ulvenwald Hydra can also get you to the lands you need right when you need them. If you're worried about losing said utility lands, then Crucible of Worlds is a way to get them back, but I don't run it because I'm not filthy rich. Also, Cruxible let's you get back the lands you sacced to Knight of the Reliquary or Glacial Chasm! Or you can even sac Glacial Chasm to its Cumulative Upkeep then replay it in a pinch if you ever need it for too long.
This has gotten a bit rambly, so I'll cut it off here. TL;DR: Knight of the Reliquary is waifu 4 laifu and I'd reccomend running a package for her to death.

Myname9, the Aether Hubs are in there to provide colorless mana for the Mirrorpools, not to be dual lands. Don't forget that colorless mana is not the same as generic mana! It took me a while to grasp that concept LOL! And being able to copy a Fateful Showdown, Rise from the Tides, or Fireball could be a great combo. I am thinking about Chandra, but wanted to try to keep this budget-ish. Right now it's under 20 TIX! She is good though....

I like Burn from Within, i'll have to consider adding that to my version! I wonder if you'd be better off with some Spirebluff Canals for consistency, maybe drop down to 2 Mirrorpools? I was considering adding Geier Reach Sanitarium because it goes well with the draw/mill theme and could trigger madness. Also, as was recommended to me, Chandra, Torch of Defiance works really well with this build!
