Thanks for checking out my deck guys! Focus_Jim love the suggestions! I agree with adding in Fecundity although taking out a card will be hard I think the value out of it will be worth it. I'm hesitant to add Living Death only because it gives everyone's creatures back, and insects are the biggest "threat" ;but I did originally have Rise of the Dark Realms in this deck but found that the mana cost is to high to achieve.
Fuzzy003 (love the name) same thing with Living Hive mana cost is just to high for me to achieve in a game. Since I'm not running ramp and I don't have a solid draw engine/ mill engine I don't rely on getting tons of land so I've chosen instead to keep everything's mana cost low.
If you guys have any suggestions on what cards to take out of this deck so we can add in these cards let me know!

Hello! I’m glad to see someone brewing a very interesting, fun deck with insects! To keep the fun factor going, I think Fecundity could be a huge value engine in this specifically. Since you state self mill is a part of the deck plan, I suggest Living Death for a win con. In this kind of deck it does what Rise of the Dark Realms does but at a cheaper cost!

I've played this deck a bit and I have to say 16 x cost creatures isn't enough. I've found 20 to be the bare minimum and 24 is usually needed to keep it running smoothly (hangarback and ballista would force the deck out of the budget range unfortunately, but playing a ballista on x=1 or x=2 has saved my ass a few times).
For the draw engine, I found Midnight Reaper to be really bad. Sure, you can counteract the damage with a drain effect, but sometimes while playing the deck you have to dump a few creatures with 1 draw engine and 1 drain effect on the field just to stay alive, and reaper makes that impossible. Also sometimes you want to draw into a drain effect later and reaper will keep pinging you for damage while you wait to draw into one which isn't great either. I found that the next best draw engine was Fecundity. Although BBB for servitude and 2G might be a little hard, you can probably include the budget taplands that gain you a life since you won't be playing anything on turn 1.
If you really don't want to splash green, Dark Prophecy can't be used to block or swing like Midnight Reaper but it is also much harder to remove.
About the lands, I usually play with 16 lands and honestly it probably isn't enough. I think 18 is the sweet spot, since even though you want to have enough x=0 cost creatures, you also want to be consistently casting 3 drops by turn 3.

You would get both the zombie and the treasure.
Sacrifice, destroy, discard, and counter are all keyword actions that ultimately result in a card being put into a graveyard, however. If the card doesn't go there. The action was still performed. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet modifies the result of the action, but does not replace the action with an entirely new one like Eligeth, Crossroads Augur does (replacing a keyword action is rare which is why the example seems so unrelated). This is in contrast to 'dies' which a player is never directed to have something die and does care where a card ends up.
Leyline of the Void won't stop triggers from Negan, The Cold-Blooded , Liliana's Caress , or Lullmage Mentor , nor change the number of cards Decree of Pain would cause you to draw. It will stop Fecundity from letting players draw cards.

I feel like getting redundant options for ivy lane is the most important thing - Blade of the Bloodchief +sac outlet will let you get a lot of sacrifices in, Rite of Passage / Urban Daggertooth , Thornbite Staff and Blasting Station will get a lot of etb triggers. Triskelion and Death's Presence exist. Fecundity has been a combo staple for a while. Llanowar Reborn offers a way to get the first counter on herd.
Altar of the Brood is a neat alternative wincon.

Urth_drgn219 Vicious Shadows is my control hate, it is a great tutor card if everyone has a scary board. I like Sarkhan Vol a lot and will get a copy eventually but I've used Xenagos, the Reveler in that role for a while and he works great. Im not the biggest fan of Vraska, Relic Seeker as she just ends up being awkward removal most games. I have Phyrexian Arena in other decks but I like Fecundity better in this deck. Eternal Witness is just a better Golgari Findbroker too. Thank you for the suggestions!

i have never seen an atla deck that cares about draw or only runs 10 creatures im very curious to what your building, do you have any links?
as TriusMalarky already suggested Skullclamp would be best value
and as Omniscience_is_life suggested Idol of Oblivion would be a solid second
i would suggest Greater Good the ability to sac a 10+ fatty to it seems pretty good,
not to mention if that fatty is a blightsteel you can just sac an egg to get him back
Fecundity is also worth considering
but this is all just based on the commander im not really sure what your deck is doing
