Azor's Elocutors and maybe even Grimoire of the Dead could be fun cards for this deck. Mikaeus, the Lunarch would also be a nice thing to have in there for the +1/+1 counters.

I'd recommend cutting Tectonic Reformation because I don't think you have enough lands to support it, Grimoire of the Dead because it's super slow, and Shattered Perception Magus of the Wheel and Dragon Mage because you want targeted discard with Feldon, not wheel-like effects. You also have Feldon listed as a commander and a creature, which may be messing with the card total.

hey silverman if you do commander and since you play aggressive i highly recommend my commander elf swarm deck. I got to play it a tournament won 1st place with it and finished the game with 82 HP..now there was a massive re-hall for it cause i got board whipped 4X but recoverd so now the deck has 7 outside win conditions if you get board whipped, things like Torment of Hailfire Hurricane Grimoire of the Dead Strixhaven Stadium to help win the game better now..thats if your looking for commander this populates like crazy too

I hate Grimoire of the Dead people will wait for you to tap this thing till its ready and blow it up before you get to bring them all back. Put a land in its place. 32 lands will leave you screwed on mana way to often. I say this because you have only 1 source of fast mana (Sol Ring). A lot of list that run 32 or less lands make up for it in fast mana like Mana Vault and Mana Crypt and Ancient Tomb and many many more. I'd try to get 35 to 36 lands or get your fast mana otherwise you'll find yourself mana screwed a bit to often. If you find that I'm wrong then disregard.

Moving on

Cut Scourge of Nel Toth for Wound Reflection doubling up on the upkeep trigger can win you the game. Also consider Strionic Resonator and Lithoform Engine. Again copying that upkeep trigger is huge and can win you the game. Milling yourself can benefit your greatly. Mesmeric Orb is a fantastic way to do this.

As some examples:

Why does the sideboard exist, and why exactly eleven cards?

Why do you get a legendary permanent of each type? I see this not as a restriction, but as broadening the gap between ultra cards, strong cards, and decent cards. If one person brings Silent Submersible , Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice , Paradox Engine , and Sword of Feast and Famine , having those cards always available is going to leave almost no chance for whatever was cobbled together from Dusk Legion Dreadnought , Radha, Heir of Keld, Grimoire of the Dead , and Demonmail Hauberk . The consistency is incredibly high, and I'm sure a more extreme example could be easily created.

What's the purpose of the baubles and trinkets?

Since there are loss restrictions, a dedicated Stax or Turbo Fog deck could potentially make the whole game virtually unwinnable for anyone. Is this a viable strategy, or should it be discouraged?

legendofaThat's brilliant, skeletons are indeed the victims of discrimination! I think the flavor of the commander should be inspired by the movie "Army of Darkness" and Reassembling Skeleton . I like returning skellies from the graveyard like our classic reassemblers, so I definitely agree with the activated ability to return skellies from the graveyard and with the black regeneration ability. We need a real Necronomicon though and not just Grimoire of the Dead .

PapLaRiviere It's true that rebels never really get much support. Maybe that's by definition, but today's rebels are tomorrow's founding fathers after all! And more Boros tribes are great.

DaWubberI know that the professor would agree that merfolk need something that will give them access to white, although I expect you would want to include the many awesome green merfolk, so maybe Bant is the way to go? We don't really need Etchings of the Chosen as we've got tons of tribal anthems in green and white.

Since you're new, I'll give some more general feedback first.

Mill was one of the first decks I ever made myself, as well. Your deck, however, appears to be going in too many different directions. Cards like Consuming Aberration and Mind Funeral care about milling the opponent to death, whereas cards like Gravepurge, Gravedigger, and Grimoire of the Dead care about self-milling. The most effective decks always capitalize on one main strategy. Your deck, however, is trying to do 2 very different things at once: milling the opponent and milling yourself. It's hard enough to mill an opponent's library out completely in the first place, so unless your entire deck focuses on just doing that, you may be killed before you get the job done. By doing multiple things at once, you'll do none of them well.

So my feedback at this point is to decide what direction your deck wants to go. Then it can be improved and fine tuned. At the very least, no matter what you decide to do with your deck, Ghoulcaller's Bell and Elixir of Immortality are just not that good.
