Telemin Performance

Sorcery

Target opponent reveals cards from the top of his or her library until he or she reveals a creature card. That player puts all noncreature cards revealed this way into his or her graveyard, then you put the creature card onto the battlefield under your control.

I would joke about "how can it be a Stax deck without Smokestack", but that's separate, and instead I'll offer up some possibly evil advice:

Evool on Mirko Vosk, Mind The Mill

2nd edit; added a few mana rocks and dual lands. More usefull mill spells, removed a few mill 2s for things like Duskmantle Guildmage, Ruin Crab, Telemin Performance, and Teferi's Tutelage.Also added more wombo-combos to add to Mirko like Fireshrieker and Trepanation Blade. Sprinkled a little more mill in with Mindcrank to start hurting them when they mill.

Tainted Adversary seems a bit mana intensive to really get good results from. How many tokens do you usually get when you cast it? And is the effect worth that much mana investment? I don't like Stitchwing Skaab, either, especially when you talk about running out of gas. It will only contribute to that problem if you don't have cards to discard, and you don't want to discard better cards to play that one.

I'd consider cutting Spell Swindle for a cheaper CMC counterspell, or a straight removal spell. I think you want to be pretty aggressive with how you spend your mana in this deck, and holding up 5 mana to counter a spell is counterintuitive to that strategy.

I'd drop the mill theme: Dread Summons, Drown in Dreams, Maddening Cacophony, Peer into the Abyss, Psychic Corrosion maybe even Telemin Performance. I would add card draw spells in those spots. Night's Whisper, Ambition's Cost, and Sign in Blood will always draw you cards, regardless of board state. Altar's Reap, Village Rites, and Vampiric Rites are good draw sources when you have a board state. I'd recommend pushing your ramp to 10 spells, and then you should be off an running.

Good luck going forward with this deck.

I like this theme. There's a few of my favorite additions missing from your list, though, so I'll just drop them here...

Also, Telemin Performance is a card I really wish was good, and tend to run it even though it isn't, and Knowledge Exploitation is one of my absolute favorites, but probably wouldn't work for you because you don't have nearly enough Rogues to cast it for its prowl cost.

Furthermore, I've seen in the comments that you don't like to run cards that steal stuff because it makes hurt feels, but it's worth mentioning that Treachery is, in my opinion, seriously undervalued.

I'm not good at suggesting cuts, but just wanted to enter my two cents. Cheers!

I'm not the utmost expert on mill decks, though I've seen plenty of them on this site for easy reference.

First off, there are definite infinite combos for the theme, but I don't know them all because I prefer not to use them. However, one that I do know is Arcanis the Omnipotent + Laboratory Maniac + Mind Over Matter . That's more for a self-mill deck, and generally runs Thassa's Oracle with other infinite combos.

Other than that, here's a short list of things I can think of that are missing from your list:

Sorry for the amazingly long and complicated response, haha. Also, I didn't take the time to check how many of my suggestions were already on your list, so I apologize if I did that.

Cheers!

You're probably right about the Telemin Performance, so I'll make the swap now for Sword of the Animist I really do like having Sewer Nemesis in there, though.

HowlingFoxGPH on Always Loot the Bodies

well, imo, i would replace Telemin Performance for its inconsistency in landing a beefy creature. Sometimes you just get dorks. Another card i would consider cutting is Sewer Nemesis. Yeah, that card do also mill your opponent but the value of thinning your deck and getting a good draw(animators) is more important. ramp will also help you in casting those reanimators you draw.
