Unexpectedly Absent is really versatile and costefficient removal. I play it in some decks and I've found resolving it is not that easy when X>2. We already have feature to move card to top or bottom of library. Having option to move card to any specific spot in library without having to move or look at other cards would be practical.

Flip cards. Tapped, flipped used to work back in v1, but in v2 I've not found way to put card in tapped, flipped state.

Grim Monolith for delicious turn 1 and turn 2 Trinispheres and it can allow for some explosive plays relatively early.

I'm not really sure what you are trying to ask, but I try to answer anyway. Only things here triggering are Hornet Queen and Mirror Mockery. Parallel Lives, Panharmonicon and Doubling Season has only static abilites. So this happens, when you attack with Hornet Queen:

You declare Hornet Queen as an attacker.

Mirror Mockery triggers. You can apply replacment effects of Parallel Lives and Doubling Season in any order, either way you end up with 4 Hornet Queen tokens.

Each one of those Hornet Queens has triggered ability and they trigger. Panharmonicon replaces each of those triggers with two triggers, so there's now 8 Hornet Queen trigger's on the stack.

Again for each trigger you can apply Doubling Season and Parallel Lives in order of your choise. Anyway you end up with 16 tokens from each trigger.

So from these triggers you get 4 attacking Hornet Queen tokens, which are exiled at end of combat and 128 1/1 green Insect creature tokens with flying and deathtouch.

Yes I have wanted complete lockdown for game and I've even managed to do so multiple times. This isn't even lockdown and especially not complete. You don't have any reliable way to find the lock and you have bunch of dead cards in deck. If you somehow against all the odds manage to pull of your Exodia, your lock still is at its best just forcing your opponent to cast spells only during their turn, tap all their lands, if they tap any of them, your life total can't change and you bolt something every turn. Even if you somehow manage to pull that off, you still let them untap freely, cast as many spells as they wish during their main phase, draw as much as they wish, they can still also target you and all of your permanents with no penalty. There are many decks in legacy, which can continue to operate under your "complete lockdown" just like there were no lock at all. Trinisphere alone can make stronger lock than anything in your deck. Listen advice you're given and play some Trinispheres and Chalice of the Void. Defense Grid is good once you can do something threatening during your turn, but I would still keep it at side.

Yeah, forgot March of the Machines.

Yes, you can name Gemstone Mine. As Epochalyptik told already. I just wanted to correct one thing. If triggered ability triggers from triggered mana ability, it isn't mana ability. It has to trigger from activated mana ability.

For example if you have Caged Sun chosen green, Life and Limb, Conspiracy chosen saproling and tap Caged Sun for mana, only first trigger will be mana ability, but rest triggers are not mana abilities and can be responded to.

"3.3. Tournament Error Slow Play WarningDefinitionA player takes longer than is reasonably required to complete game actions. If a judge believes a player is intentionally playing slowly to take advantage of a time limit, the infraction is Unsporting Conduct Stalling.It is also slow play if a player continues to execute a loop without being able to provide an exact number of iterations and the expected resulting game state."

As long as you are drawing and discarding new cards you are changing game-state and all is cool. However, if you let the Kozilek trigger resolve and keep looting after that, you'll get slow play warninig. As long as you don't let that Kozilek trigger resolve you can give upperlimit for your required activations and that's the number of cards in your library.

Verdant Catacombs is your best fetch, play 4 of those, less jank. Play 3. Hymn to Tourach over 4. Bloodbraid Elf. It gives better early game and Hymn to Tourach is essential to beat burn and one of the best cards in mirror. For the sideboard, Red Elemental Blast over Pyroblast, because Red Elemental Blast can't be misdirected as easily. Also 3. Surgical Extraction over Maelstrom Pulse. This improves your match-up against dredge, lands and combo decks.

If you are new to Legacy, I highly suggest you to play combo deck or some noninteractive aggro, because then you need to just learn to play your deck. If you want to play interactive deck, you need to also know what your opponent is doing and in Legacy "What is my opponent trying to do?" is quite open question. If you know what you are going to go against it's a lot easier, but you still need to learn more decks than by playing noninteractive decks. Familirize with format before playing interactive decks to know how to interact. Let's try to play some control then:

4 Drifting Meadow
4 Slippery Karst
4 Blasted Landscape
6 Forest
6 Plains
3 Swords to Plowshares
3 Gilded Light
3 Blade Splicer
4 Fluctuator
4 Day of Judgment
2 Eternal Dragon
4 Wall of Roots
4 Astral Slide
3 Wall of Blossoms
2 Acidic Slime
4 Street Wraith

4 Nature's Claim 4 Relic of Progenitus 4 Pithing Needle 3 Ratchet Bomb

This is quite rough version and it's quite undercosted for your budget. You can improve it with Living Wish and wishboard, use Containment Priest for shenanigans and with more. You could add somewhere Lone Missionary somewhere or Reclamation Sage. Perhaps you want to splash a colour, anyway it's easily customizable for your own preferences. Your meta seems to be light on Abrupt Decay, so Astral Slide felt natural way to go.

I was referring to title "All Possible Commanders". Description can't be clickbait, because you don't see it until you click.
