Abyssal Gatekeeper Discussion

A few comments. First, what in the **** is your meta where this needs to be a thing? I'm just...kind blown away that you would need to be absolutely this fast. Anyway, card suggestions:
Easy includes off the top of my head are Doomfall, Plaguecrafter (strictly better than Fleshbag Marauder), Phyrexian Obliterator, maybe Crypt Ghast for more mana, Glaring Spotlight and Arcane Lighthouse (lay down the hate on hexproof), and Sudden Spoiling (can't be countered)! Also, you can't play Sparring Collar in mono black.
I also think some better card draw would be useful, and Phyrexian Arena isn't that great if the games are going very short. Instead, consider instant effects like Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Dark Prophecy, Night's Whisper, Read the Bones, or Midnight Reaper.
I know you want everything to be cheap, but I'd recommend at least a few spells that can serve as bombs if the game gets to later rounds. Maybe something like Exsanguinate, Killing Wave, or Torment of Hailfire.
If you're interested in the combo, go for Mikaeus + Walking Ballista. :)
I also thought of Leonin Bladetrap, though that card isn't great...
Finally, quick question. In the description you mention equipment that grants deathtouch, but I don't see any in the actual deck. Is that still something you wanted to do?

This is much better than the previous. It still suffers from some of the same problems your last version, but it is in the right direction.
A few notable cards I would take out.
Glissa, the Traitor- you don't have enough artifacts to make her best ability to work for you Eldrazi Monument- it is a strong card, but I would suggest putting something more toward your strategy in here. From Beyond- in this deck it is just a more expensive Awakening Zone
Some I would consider adding (not all of them at once)

This looks like a pretty fun deck, I rather like Gonti ETB as a theme.
Other interesting ETBs to consider:
Creature control:Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, Abyssal Gatekeeper, Slum Reaper: If your playgroup likes their indestructible/hexproof stuff. I would not run all of course but pick your favorite.
Revival:Puppeteer Clique, Entomber Exarch, GravediggerClique is one of my favorite creatures period, really handy to have. Exarch offers options on ETB and Gravedigger is a classic but his relatively low cost can be really nice.
Other:Netherborn Phalanx: For both playing and tutoring. Can really hurt with a Panharmonicon in play.

Abyssal Gatekeeper, Accursed Centaur, Agent of Shauku, Altar's Reap, Apocalypse Demon, Apprentice Necromancer, Ravenous Demon Flip, Archdemon of Unx, Archfiend of Depravity, Banewhip Punisher, Betrayal of Flesh. Just a couple suggestions.
