Alrighty, changed a few things with the land base!
Also added these to the maybe board I'd like to put into use, just trying to work out what to replace for them lol -
Door to Nothingness (For fun ;))
As always, Feiryn, your help is much appreciated! Have more of the land base on the way, but probably won't have them for a few weeks still. (Also have Hunting Grounds coming... Can't wait to use that lol.

Vinman- Granted, my experience with the newer build of the deck is still limited thanks to COVID, but Eliminate can be better in certain situations. Instant speed means it can handle manlands and haste creatures better than Thirst, but for me against a deck like the new RB Scourge/Shadow, I like the mana efficiency more. The important spells in mill often cost 2 mana, so having more plays for a single mana makes your turn 3 better in comparison. Your main interaction in Drown in the Loch is already 2 mana, and it can handle most things later in the game. It's those crucial early turns where the aggro decks can get under you, so I feel that the 1 mana answer is worth it over the instant speed. The flexibility of thirst is good since if you draw it later in the game it will still be able to handle a large creature or PW in case you need it to. Eliminate is still a fine card, but it will depend on the meta you play in. I know that's the cop-out answer regarding SB choices, but it's honestly true.
Also Ensnaring Bridge is straight gas in the deck. If jund (read: Kolaghan's Command and Abrupt Decay) continues to go on the decline, it might even be worth adding to the main deck again. If your opponent can't answer it, it will buy you near infinite time to draw into the mill spells you need to win. It's not good against T3feri decks or Cryptic Command either, but against decks like humans it can single-handedly win. The rise of Skyclave Apparition in multiple decks makes it risky to run now as well, so once again it will depend on what you think you'll come across as far as if you want to run it in your SB. Historically it has won me many games, but the current meta may be hostile towards it so I'm not running many copies. Bontu's Last Reckoning might be what you want in its place if you decide to really hate on creature decks.
Stern Dismissal isn't worth a slot imo. It's worse against the heavy aggro decks at killing creatures, and many of those creatures have good ETB abilities or haste anyway. It actually is better against leylines than Feed the Swarm, but Maddening Cacophony, Mesmeric Orb, and Ruin Crab get around leyline naturally, so leyline isn't as much of a death knell as it used to be against us. Feed only loses life equal to the cmc of the creature, so it's worth killing a large goyf, Scourge of the Skyclaves, or even Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath for a little life. This is the slot you might prefer Eliminate in if you don't forsee the need to remove enchantments. I like the unconditional flexibility it offers just in case I come across the random enchantment deck, so that's why I use it in my SB.
As an aside, I agree with all of the land changes SentinelElf2711 suggested. I'd even consider swapping the mikokoro and another card for another 2 blue fetches or Prismatic Vistas for extra landfall triggers.

Ah... so we're back with the Swords :)

The token copy is a bit tricky as it can either be incredibly powerful or rather weak depending on what creatures that player has available.
I like it and it seems controlled and fair. It'll be a bitch to fight against for token decks in multiplayer, as one hit to one of the neighbors (willing or unwilling) is likely going to clear your army.
The exile all graveyards is a tech option but one that is generally only applicable once, and then it's rather mediocre. Additionally both white and green has options to bring stuff back from the graveyard, so getting rid of their own seems a bit counter productive.
I feel this suggestion is definitely lackluster.

Straight land destruction on a repeatable trigger is spelling trouble. If you restricted it to non-lands AND replaced it, it could possibly be balanced - ala Ghost Quarter.
In OG Magic, land destruction was seldom a 3 CMC mana spell with Molten Rain and delved more into a 4 CMC mana spell for the most time like Craterize. I don't think that should be the precedent to set for these triggers.
Returning a land card from graveyard to the hand is nifty but does kinda target a niche of players - those that can afford fetch lands. Most players don't have lands in their graveyard as a rule, except those that plays fetch lands and those that mills - either by their own hand or by an opponent's.
I do hope WotC prints more functional reprints of Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse that are slow fetch lands but affordable. However so far they have been playing coy with granting these cards at common / uncommon. And the Prismatic Vista which only fetches basic lands but does it untapped is just as expensive as the fetch lands - despite the latter's ability to grab Dual lands or Dual land-esque cards with subtypes.
I feel like this should be considered when designing these cards. How easy is it to get the benefit of these triggers? How niche is this effect?
And forcing a Cruel Edict on the defending player is quite powerful. In most colors it would make more sense to block the attacking creature, but in Dimir colors your creature is likely to have evasion - thus granting it flavorful more power to Dimir creatures.
I like it.
I can't really say I disapprove of it, but it does feel "safe". Not particularly interesting.
The fight ability would seem more flavorful on the Gruul sword (and it's also where I placed it when I made my attempt) but it is interesting when you can combine Selesnya's ability to make their creatures indestructible and fighting without losing. Fight also makes a keyword like deathtouch very interesting as a removal option for other colors.
Again it's not bad, it's just a bit safe.

It is however a bit broken on turn 4 to get a token of Agent of Treachery after you just discarded it yourself.
Either a CMC restriction or just granting you the ability to cast a creature from a graveyard with "You may spend mana as though it were mana of any color to cast that spell." to fix the balance on that a little.
Or it exiles a single card from a graveyard, if a creature you create a token of it. That means it's a single use. You can still set it up, but it's not repeatable.
The ability to snatch a creature card from your entire library and Pod that right into play also seems really broken.
I don't think the drawbacks on this when it's good (5 to 12 cards discarded) outweighs or equals the benefits. However when it's bad (like 0 to 3 cards bad) you really don't want to attack.
That's a really awkward spot for a Sword to be in. And as you said yourself it is likely OP.
Interesting design though. Alas a bit too scalable.
If you want to make an attempt that could more realistically see print, I would suggest you look through the existing Swords and try to limit the abilities to something that is not that scalable and more constant. Instead of being variables that can scale, make it do this particular thing and nothing more, nothing less.
Keep in mind that the ability should be useful and beneficial for most colors. It's okay if it fits better into one color or color pair than others but all should have some benefit of it. Like Sword of Fire and Ice grants card draw, which White and partially Red hungers for, especially in Commander, and is usually seen as "better" in those colors because it covers a weakness that color / color pair has.

I removed Prismatic Vista from my list, as well. There are simply not enough basics (and I run a few snow lands in addition to basic lands).

rkjunior, I agree with unwucht. Having Amulet of Vigor provides tons of value after Scapeshifting or Nahiri's Lithoforming. I’ve been able to get early Omnath, Locus of Creation casts from having the amulet and a bounce land by reaping from the two mana and bouncing itself. It might not be completely necessary to have three bounce lands, but I like having them around because I still run Retreat to Coralhelm and Sakura-Tribe Scout for the infinite landfall triggers with a bounce land. You answered the reason why I didn’t ever add Prismatic Vista and Fabled Passage, not enough basics to warrant them.

This is so cool! Have you considered Rapacious One instead of Essence Feed? Maybe Ashnod's Altar? I feel like the altar would be able to net you twice the mana from your eldrazi spawn and can also provide on-demand death to your creatures, and a hit from Rapacious One can easily advance your board state towards something powerful and repeatable.
Your land base looks good, however Korvold especially benefits from lands that can sacrifice themselves. Fetch lands like Wooded Foothills, Verdant Catacombs, Bloodstained Mire, Windswept Heath, Misty Rainforest,Prismatic Vista, Scalding Tarn and Polluted Delta could really speed up your mana base and let you draw cards at the same time! I get that they may be out of budget- proxies are always an option if your playgroup is cool with them. Additional lands like Spawning Bed, Lotus Field, Jund Panorama, Blighted Woodland and Fabled Passage work well too.
Harrow instead of Wild Wanderer would fit your sacrifice theme. Pitiless Plunderer would give you double value while Broodwarden only buffs some of your creatures. You're not really winning with spawn, and a lot of your best eldrazi produce scions anyway.
I like your removal package, but I feel like there are some unneeded spells that can also be cut for ramp/removal. Things like Fog, Spawning Breath, Prismatic Omen, and Wave of Vitriol don't really advance your game plan (at least not as much as you'd like them to), and I think things such as Breaker of Armies, Nature's Lore, and Corpsehatch, and Commander's Sphere would work some wonders.
This is a super cool concept and I'm eager to see it in the future. I hope this helps!
