Love the idea of this list. +1 I'm definitely going to be attempting a build of it to become the local fun police and just had a few questions.
Have you considered running loot effects like Frantic Search and Forbidden Alchemy to fill our graves or cantrips like Brainstorm, Ponder, and Preordain to speed our draws? If so what would you swap out for such effects?
I've done some playtesting as well and was just wondering what brought your land count so low for a control list. Often I find opening hands unkeepable for lack of land mana to do anything impactful to slow others down.

I wonder that as well, and would also like to suggest cards such as Ponder, Preordain, and Serum Visions. Also, just so you know, Force of Will costs $75, so if you're playing casually and don't already own one, it might not be worth it for you.

I just try to throw in some stuff, maybe you can use some of it.
Well known combos which might be nice here:
Grim Monolith/Basalt Monolith + Power Artifact = infinite colourless mana.
Grim Monolith/Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth = infinite colourless mana.
Tidespout Tyrant + Sol Ring/Mana Vault/Mana Crypt = infinite colourless mana.
Tidespout Tyrant + infinite colourless mana + Candelabra of Tawnos/Palinchron = infinite coloured mana.
Tidespout Tyrant + infinite colourless mana + Izzet Signet/Mox Opal/Fellwar Stone/Gilded Lotus = infinite coloured mana.
Palinchron + Phantasmal Image = infinite coloured mana.Candelabra of Tawnos + High Tide or similar = good mana rock.
Future Sight + Helm of Awakening + Sensei's Divining Top = draw.
Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter = a lot of infinite stuff possible.
I'd probably play Preordain, Gitaxian Probe, Impulse and Fact or Fiction. Maybe also Gush and certainly Frantic Search. These help you go through your pile quicker, which is quite important, since you don't have access to a lot of the good black tutors. Gamble and Intuition might be good, tutors are important for in cEDH. Turnabout seems good. I think most red cEDH decks play Pyroblast/Red Elemental Blast. Chain of Vapor probably belongs here and also Hurkyl's Recall. I think Dack Fayden belongs in every commander deck. Past in Flames. Baral, Chief of Compliance.
I'd streamline the deck towards fast combo (similar to a storm deck) and remove the stax elements. Usually if you try to be between fast combo and stax you don't do either right. I like Mind Stone, but for cEDH it's probably too slow. Library of Leng doesn't do enough in this deck I think.

CoerusDarksoul: I would look at your auras; bounce and counters are Blue's removal; those aura ones are pretty trashy imo. They also fail to synergize with talran. I'd also cut Arcane Denial; yes it replaces itself but it super disadvantages you as you are even and an opponent is up 1. That's not the fallout I want from a counterspell. That opens up: 5 slots. Also Control Magic and Corrupted Conscience are cheao and greater than the 2 you're currently running. Also a pet card of mine Snapback is better than Consuming Vortex always unless you can splice onto arcane; the knock off Force of Will just feels so great imo. For greater consistency, free drakes, etc I'd run: Brainstorm, Ponder, and Preordain; all are dirt cheap and will really aid talrand. I'd go towards ~40-50 instants + sorceries for Talrand. The enchantments don't synergize with him so give them extra scrutiny and try to build up what will let you unleash an army of drakes! I am more than happy to give more help or suggestions(just ask!) but I don't want to inundate you either. Good luck!

From my experience, the best mill decks don't try to mill as quickly as possible, they control as hard as possible and mill more as a slow bleed rather than trying to burn. Arcane Denial is a neat counterspell to consider. Preordain is better than Brainstorm unless you have shuffle effects or play Jace's Erasure. Augur of Bolas Is a cool card to consider aswell :)
