I play when the mood strikes me, or when I can afford it.

I was just gonna say that a card with Rebound exiles upon casting, and the Bosium Strip checks the graveyard, where the spell will not be, so it will not be a valid target for the Strip. But, I do have to admit, had never seen that card before, and I like it, so thank you.

Maze of Ith for Mystifying Maze, simply because it doesn't have a mana cost, and won't allow your opponent to get any ETB effects, should it have it.

And I know why Zameck Guildmage is in there, but I honestly think it could be used for a better slot, like Fathom Mage, or Avenger of Zendikar, or Experiment Kraj. All of these are great cards to help out your deck.

Last but not least, a Deepglow Skate is bonkers in any build like this. Also, think Lighthouse Chronologist.

That is, unless the card itself says you can have any number of them in a deck, such as Shadowborn Apostle. I know that is an odd exception, but it is true, and a staple of one of my EDH decks.

Honestly, this format is supposed to be a lot of fun. If you are able to play and enjoy the games you play, you have accomplished your goal for the deck. If you feel like you are just getting massacred and not having any fun with the deck, then build a new/different deck. I have something like 70+ Commanders to build decks around, and currently 6 or 7 EDH decks built. It is just a fun format to play.

Said on Top 10... Elves...

Joraga Warcaller, Imperious Perfect, Lys Alana Huntmaster, Immaculate Magistrate are my top 4, having played with a number of Elves. You can build any elf EDH deck around those four and it is going to be successful, and that is the criteria to me. Llanowar Elves (or Lawnmower Elves as I called them) are still the gold standard any and all mana dorks will be held to, and as a result, deserves a place.

You can get Mind Funeral for about 3.50 each @tcgplayer.com . And you are right, I did miss the Fraying Sanity. Even with that in there, I still think Traumatize is over-priced for that use. It will hit, at most, 25 cards, maybe 27, based on a perfect draw w/o any other milling. Honestly it has a diminishing return as the game goes on, and I just have found it to be an almost dead card each time I have drawn it. At least with a card like Archive Trap, at the same cmc, I have the possibility of casting it free, especially in the early game when people are using fetch lands to mana fix, or when they are using tutors to find a piece of their puzzle. I run 4 of them instead of any Traumatizes.

Ok, if you want some budget work, Breaking is a huge ally. Next, drop Traumatize (too costly for what it does) for Mind Funeral, and Siren of the Silent Song for Hedron Crabs. Finally, see if you can lay your hands on a few Fraying Sanitys, as that card makes any mill deck even more bonkers.

My suggestions.
