I was about to say "This list looks suspiciously like mine", but then I realized I had my Leovold build set to private.
Solid deck. Why Consecrated Sphinx though? It's hurt pretty heavily by Leovold. Surely there are better options than Putrefy, such as Beast Within. Trygon Predator and Coiling Oracle both seem bad here. Also, I see High Tide and a few of its package cards, but no Candelabra of Tawnos or Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip. What made you decide to exclude them? Also, what does Villainous Wealth do for the deck?

Trimming a deck is difficult for me as well, and I think it is for a lot of people. Im far from being an expert on Magic, but what Ive learned is really helpful is to look at cards individually and how they fit into the bigger picture. Go card by card and ask some questions. (If you already do this, sorry.)
- What attracts me to this card?
- How does it interact with other cards in the deck?
- When is this card helpful (see (Quadrant Theory)[ http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/li/quadrant-theory-2014-08-20])? (The article is about limited, but I think the general idea can apply to all formats.)
- Does this card have value on its own, or only in combination with other cards? If only in combination, how likely am I to get a card it combos with?
- How does this card fit into my mana curve?
- Are there alternatives to this card, and if so, why do I have this card in the deck as opposed to the alternatives?
- Why is this card in the deck? If you dont know, remove it.
All that said, I didnt go through your deck in that much detail, but here are some cards that stick out to me as potentially being worth removing:
- Whelming Wave
- Coiling Oracle
- Kiora's Follower
- Thada Adel, Acquisitor
- Trygon Predator
- As you can see, I like bullet points.

Leo will not be a focus. Hes just a solid hate bear that protects my permanents and can all but win the game with a wheel. Jace's Archivist and Windfall were already borderline includes in this deck and Leo can be put into play with Green Sun's Zenith unlike Notion Thief. Leo just puts them over the top and acts as proactive protection for my combos. It strips away counterspells and removal. Only time will tell if your right , and I agree that Leo will be the first to go if I need more removal. I added Trygon Predator and Nature's Lore as a stopgap measure.

As for Yawgmoth's Will, I've never actually played with it. The exile does effect how my deck would like to run reanimation effects, so I haven't really considered it too heavily. Though It seems like a really strong late-game mana sink. As for Splendid Reclamation, it seems pretty strong. If you're sitting there milling yourself the whole game, then you'll probably mill some lands. I feel like you don't really have enough self mill to really make good use of it. Sidisi is good, but I feel like you could have more, like Life from the Loam, Golgari Grave-Troll, Stinkweed Imp, Mulch, Grisly Salvage, Mesmeric Orb, or Satyr Wayfinder. There are more, but those are my favorites.

and Terranlord thanks for the comments and help! I've taken almost all of your cuts and finally have the deck down to a much leaner 100. I'm keeping in Noxious Revival because I really enjoy playing with it and I like it as emergency graveyard protection tech. I agree that Trygon Predator could be cut but what do you think should replace it? I like the idea of Yawgmoth's Will but often find it's insufficient in this mana starved deck where I can usually only play 1 or 2 cards with it. Also the exile has screwed me over huge in the past. What do y'all think? Also, what do you think of Splendid Reclamation?
