DrukenReaps on Need help to be green!

First since we are talking green I have to mention Grothama, All-Devouring, My deck In His Belly can be pretty spicy with a number of different things that go on.

I haven't toyed with all the ones you mentioned so I'll just touch on the ones I have.

Siona, Captain of the Pyleas those are certainly effective ways to play the deck. Outside of the combos you'll want a nice mix of auras that go on your stuff and creatures to put them on. Probably more auras than creatures since you can always put things on her and her tokens. Great enchantress deck.

Rosheen Meanderer I think is better with instants and sorceries that have in the cost. Creatures too but I'd generally aim to have all the mana production of all the times and then around 10 finishers.

The Mimeoplasm makes an amazing mill deck. I went for milling everyone at the table and then had things like Bloodchief Ascension to lay on the hurt when someone gets hit with Traumatize. Don't think of using mill as a way to win think of it as a way to attain resources that allow you to win. Some of your finishers there should be Rise of the Dark Realms and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord. If you happen to mill someone out all the better.

I might put 1x Traumatize in and maybe Jace, Wielder of Mysteries in the sideboard. I'm not a fan of creatures. And I have enough with Darkness, and Ensnaring Bridge, Crypt Incursion which I added recently added I just need to update my deck to combat aggro. Ashiok, Dream Render, and Bojuka Bog is for my graveyard hate I play Bojuka Bog as a free exile graveyard spell rather than a land.

I agree putting Tome Scour in place of Mind Sculpt I've contemplated that several times already just hadn't pulled the trigger on it.

I have a couple of suggestions for this deck. First, I think you need a creature base of some kind, since chances are you will be facing decks that just want to kill you by attacking. Merfolk Secretkeeper and Jace's Phantasm are good cards for this. Also, i would advise cutting Mind Sculpt and replacing it with Tome Scours or Traumatize's, as Tome Scour is very good and im pretty sure Traumatize is an instant win with Fraying Sanity it is 5 CMC so i would only run 2-3 of them MAX. Other creatures could be Consuming Aberration, Wall of Lost Thoughts, and Vantress Gargoyle. Looks fun, fraying sanity is awesome, but i would say add some kind of hate towards Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, because that says no to your whole entire gameplan. I'm too lazy to really go look for any cards that do that, but im pretty sure playing Leyline of the Void works as a sideboard option. Awesome deck, +1 from me.

Oh and one last one, I guess-

Remove Jester's Cap , and definitely replace Relic of Progenitus with Dimir-doppleganger and Bojuka Bog .

Honestly, any of the enters tapped mana rocks are better off replaced with 3cmc ones like Darksteel Ingot or Manalith . Sol Ring and Arcane Signet are ones to try to add too.

Good walls to consider are Guardians of Meletis - low cmc, colorless, and 6 toughness - Fog Bank , and Mnemonic Wall to get your Traumatize or Mindgrind back. It’s expensive at 5cmc for only 4 toughness, but I feel it’s worth it to get a sorcery back

You've given a ton to think about, Valius! Much appreciated! A lot of what you mentioned makes sense. Initially, my goal was to build this deck around the $100 mark, so I didn't consider cards like Cyclonic Rift , Toxic Deluge , etc. But... things change! :)

I did have a follow up on Brainspoil . While I agree that Grisly Spectacle is a better card for the deck, I'm specifically using Brainspoil to tutor cards like Consuming Aberration and Traumatize .

Mind if I ask you a couple of more questions? When you were writing your 2 comments, I was in the process of adding 3 questions to my description above. You've already answered #2 pretty thoroughly. Mind taking a stab at questions 1 and 3 (I didn't forget about Bojuka Bog )? Thanks in advance!

I see this deck is like a control/Grindy mill.

If you want to go all in glass cannon,

Traumatize is legal with Fraying Sanity

Pioneer is ridiculous.

So, if you want to mill or make your opponent draw out their deck, some cards that are going to help you get there are as follows:

Traumatize

Stroke of Genius

Blue Sun's Zenith

Braingeyser

Damnable Pact

Howling Mine

Dictate of Kruphix

Nemesis of Reason

Jace, Memory Adept

Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger

Fraying Sanity

Sphinx's Tutelage

Consuming Aberration

Hedron Crab

Glimpse the Unthinkable

Archive Trap

Dreamborn Muse

Forced Fruition

Once you mill your opponent out, you still need to make them draw a card. There's alot of options, but to name a couple others that weren't mentioned earlier are Otherworld Atlas and Prosperity .

Use Pili-Pala and Grand Architect to create infinite mana and then cast Archeomancer and Mercurial Pretender to blink Archeomancer to pull those instant and sorcery cards back from the graveyard to continue to force your opponent to draw out their deck.

As a back up, get rid of all the jank in the deck and throw in about 20 Persistent Petitioners with Thrumming Stone , and all the tribal stuff like Coat of Arms , Stoneforge Masterwork , Adaptive Automaton , and Vanquisher's Banner . You can either use the petitioners to mill out opponents or you can just swing them. Nobody will expect that. Hell, throw in Archetype of Imagination for good fun.
