Allright, so here's the "how the fk does it work?" part.
The deck is a prett slow one that takes some time before it really activates, so several cards both in the main deck and side board are there to mitigate the pressure that we might suffer from early plays. Lightning Bolt, Fire / Ice and Arboreal Grazer fills these slots in the main deck.
What the deck wants to do is generally to discard lands with Seismic Assault to deal damage to the enemy, then use cards such as Wrenn and Six, Life from the Loam and Slogurk, the Overslime to recur those lands to your hand again.
Trade Routes is used for 3 reasons. The first is pretty straight forwards, use your land cards in hand to generate new cards. Second use is to be able to play your channel lands early in the game to give mana while being able to pick them up later in the game to use their channel effect. And the third one is to make Slogurk, the Overslime to grow rapidly. If you discard a land and opt to dredge a Life from the Loam, Slogurk, the Overslime can grow anywhere between +1 to +4 +1/+1 counters for a single mana, ontop of digging for utility lands that you can return later.
Sadly I have not had a lot of time playtesting it, and I think that the sideboard needs a lot of work. First and foremost I feel like I have doubled down a bit too hard on artifact hate, albeit with a lot of cards with multi purpose.
Anyways, the rundown of why I included the cards are as follows: Damping Sphere was included to stop decks such as tron and titan, and it also works well versus decks such as breach or storm or other more jank combos such as neobrand.
Pithing Needle and Relic of Progenitus dont need explaining.
Brotherhood's End was included to deal with asmo decks, affinity, prison tron, goblins, merfolk and other similar decks to these.
Force of Vigor is in the deck solely because I have no way to stop a turn 2 kill from hammer, other than blocking with an Arboreal Grazer. I am strongly considering cutting it though.
Haywire Mite is included to stop Kaldra Compleat, but will probably see play in the same games that my other artifact and enchantment hate cards.
Otawara, Soaring City is just so that you are more likely to draw them, especially in matchups where they run pithing needle to stop Boseiju, Who Endures, but is also really good for returning combo pieces to hand, or just big beaters like murktide. Its also really good vs tokens.
Boseiju, Who Endures just a really solid card, deals with most problems the deck faces, such as graveyard hate and blood moon effects.
Bojuka Bog is a fantastic card in this deck. With this card and Trade Routes you can exile your opponents graveyard every turn if you'd like, although it is only in sorcery speed.
Cards that I would like to experiment with: Expressive Iteration is a card that I am gonna experiment with in place of Fire / Ice. I think that Fire / Ice is much better at stalling out the game, but expressive is such a valuable card to have in the mid game.
Academy Ruins and Buried Ruin to be able to get artifacts back from the graveyard.
Shadowspear to deal with agressive matchups where the opponent have no good way of dealing with my constructs or Slogurk, the Overslime.
Orvar, the All-Form versus decks that enjoy discarding your hand, so generally versus decks that runs archong or liliana.
I hope you enjoyed the read, give me some thoughts in the comments if you have any =)

I started playing Magic in about 2010. I’ve dabbled with various formats, standard, modern, pauper but there’s only one daddy and that’s Commander.
The five decks to the right have taken me years to build and refine and I’ve recently got all the pieces I need. Magic is an expensive hobby after all.
My brother and I play on the weekends at the LGS and love the strategy and complexity the game offers. On a personal note I also love the artwork and lore.
I’m currently working on a sixth deck (Boros legends) but it’ll be a while before it appears here.
Common – Terminate
Uncommon – Probably Relic of Progenitus for its reference to Progenitus and its utility.
Rare – Great Sable Stag ; Great artwork and a nice little anti-control piece.
Mythic – Lorthos, the Tidemaker ; Used to be my mono blue commander and I’ve always had a soft spot for this cuddly octopus.

I mean this is great. I love this non-mill pseudo-mill plan. Particularly Forced Fruition. I don't understand the inclusion of the seals? But if you're looking for enchantment triggers in blue, you've got Shimmering Wings. You probably want some more graveyard disruption as well, like Farewell or Honor the Fallen or Relic of Progenitus or Rest in Peace or Silent Gravestone
I also really like Gerrard's Hourglass Pendant in this deck since you self mill.

Well, if you were going a third color, the obvious choice is . Drown in the Loch is so powerful in a mill deck as a denial card, as it can counter a threat or be removal, and it scales, all for 2 mana. also has a lot of gravehate options, many of which gain life, so they help against both aggro and graveyard oriented decks, which may help to free up some slots in the sideboard, by consolidating your hate a bit.
Jace, the Perfected Mind is also a pretty powerful potential tool if able to be enabled, main enabler is usually Archive Trap (would suggest Field of Ruin if you went that route). Tasha's Hideous Laughter is another option if just going for the mill since most modern decks are very low curves.
I'm also a little surprised you don't have much in the way of gravehate in your sideboard. What do you do against decks where your mill strategy enables them? Bojuka Bog and Grafdigger's Cage just seem suboptimal. If removing threats already in the graveyard, I'd consider something like Surgical Extraction or Ashiok, Dream Render. If doing something preventative, replacement effects are the way to go instead of narrow denial strategies like Grafdigger's Cage since a lot of strategies like Living End get around it. Dauthi Voidwalker or Rest in Peace are the two main cards that come to mind. Honestly though, I think your best option in your current colors is Relic of Progenitus, since it lets you slowly chip away at graveyard strategies or is a cantrip that can be used in response to their graveyard strategy.

19/01/2023 changes: There have been a few rounds of changes. Removed counterspells to attempt to make the deck to make more fun to play against, sold the Mox Diamond because it's become worth a mint in the last 7 years, added more draw and refocused the deck on creature ETB based interaction instead of something like Oblivion Ring. It's a good card but I don't get the value that I could get out of a Fiend Hunter. You know where I'm going with this. I've also added more mana fixing to the land base and adjusted colours for the new balance.

Yeah, there are many ways to get big mana.
Here is a story: I was playing a Bruvac the Grandiloquent edh, and I had Bribery in hand. Now, I know that one of my opponents is playing Blightsteel Colossus and another is playing Dockside Extortionist.
So, I played Bribery and got Dockside Extortionist on turn five. Phantasmal Image it. Clever Impersonator it. Make approximately twenty treasure. Play Bruvac the Grandiloquent, Maddening Cacophony, and Relic of Progenitus to mill out most of my opponents library's. Pact of Negation was a backup in case there was removal.
So, Dockside Extortionist allowed a mono-blue mill deck to win on turn five.

Id suggest switching out Relic of Progenitus with either Unlicensed Hearse or Scrabbling Claws. Poxwalkers, Prized Amalgam, and Master of Death are also cards that have proven to be super good in my Tormod deck although I also have Intuition, Entomb, Traumatize, Unmarked Grave, Altar of Dementia, Oriq Loremage and Vile Entomber in mine. Some dredge cards might help filling your grave. If you ever add fetchlands then I would also add Hostile Desert and Crucible of Worlds. Phyrexian Tower, High Market and Unholy Grotto/Volrath's Stronghold are some other good lands. Tortured Existence is also a must. 1 black mana per 2/2 zombie as much as you want is hard to beat.

MensRightsFTW what about Relic of Progenitus. Part of my idea was a land or enchantment that says Cards in your graveyard cannot be exiled
