Stax is a resource management deck, based upon the idea of proactively dealing with the opponent's threats. This means instead of removing their big dude, or countering their wincon, you force them to never cast the cards to begin with. Winter Orb is a great card at doing such a feat, as you can flash in your commander on the endstep of the opponent's turn, tapping it down. You untap all of your permanents, as it is tapped, but all your opponent's will have to deal with only untapping one land. This will make casting a big creature or wincon very difficult. Discard is another form of stax. By denying them cards, mana, or stopping them from casting spells (Gaddock Teeg, Rule of Law, etc.) you remove their threats before they even have them.
Stax is IMO the most competitive non-combo strategy at the highest tables of EDH. Hokori, Dust Drinker, Stasis, Trinisphere, Sphere of Resistance, Static Orb, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Lodestone Golem, Armageddon, and Thorn of Amethyst are the types of cards considered to be "Stax."
Voltron is a separate strategy entirely, based upon the principle of Rafiq of the Many or one massive creature. Normally voltron strategies like to get one medium sized creature, then enchant (Shield of the Oversoul) the creature to oblivion, or equip one up (Fireshrieker) similarly, at which point by doubling and doubling up it's damage, it one-shots a player. It is normally an aggressive strategy.

I don't think Cataclysm is a good card for you, it looks like you like to hoard permanents in the field, and Cataclysm is no good for that. Another thing, you have few pieces to combo well with Stasis you do have Root Maze but Kismet (or Frozen AEther) or Orb of Dreams can help you finnish the combo.
Eventhough Mana Vault is a great card I dont feel like is necesary, but it's an artifact based stax so I get it. I wouldnt play Ichor Rats it's way too slow even for a stax deck.If you wanna check my deck here it is: Max Stax Atraxa
Also, I like to play Armageddon and Heroic Intervention, It has won me a lot of games. And since you're running Armageddon and Ravages of War you double the chances to get the combo. Also Heroic Intervention is a great counter for all the boardwipes or targeted disruption in commander.
See ya man! =)

Some things I would suggest are Magus of the Moat, Grand Abolisher. some removal I would recommend is Path to Exile, you could use it to ramp yourself or to get rid of a scary creature, or just make sure the counter player has no lands with which to respond via Armageddon or if you aren't really one for MLD then Catastrophe does give the option to either wrath of god or armageddon. guess it depends on what is needed at the time

I would recommend a Grand Abolisher since most angels are big and scary and instant speed removal is common, some board wipes this deck sorely needs include: Catastrophe, Wrath of God or Day of Judgment, Hour of Revelation, if you're feeling extra cancerous then maybe Armageddon or Worldslayer. Overall I like this deck, it just needs a little bit more tuning and you can have a brutal battlecruiser style angel tribal.

- out Jolrael, Empress of Beasts, in Growing Rites of Itlimoc
I wanted one, but wasn't convinced I'd get one at a reasonable price. I happened to win a promo pack as a door prize and it happened to have the promo treasure map version of Growing Rites! (Jolrael was in the deck at a way to Armageddon the player who uses a Wrath of God effect, but it never happened, so it was an easy cut.)

I like the inclusion of Pyrohemia, it's a card I've overlooked, but is also has so much value in a Dinosaur deck. Hunting Grounds is ridiculously good too. Other things like Descendants' Path and Zendikar Resurgent are just great inclusions. The latter is a little pricey mana-wise (I'd prefer to spend the mana on Dinosaurs or Gishath), but good. Descendants' Path might even be able to replace Etali, Primal Storm entirely and leave another space for you to think about.
I think my first suggestion would be to remove Ravages of War, because frankly that is too dangerous of a card in this sort of deck that can't work reliably without lands (I know, I've considered Armageddon myself before realizing). Maybe it'd work with a couple of cards that bring lands back to the field afterward?
I think I'd also take a look at replacing some of the single-target effects of the Dinosaurs and of the non-creature spells. They work better in single-player, non-singleton formats, and some of them, like Needletooth Raptor, are to frail to survive multiple rounds of Enrage (without buffs). Of course they might be better in EDH than I give them credit for, but I'd err on the side of caution.
Overall I like the double-combat phases and just plain explosive win conditions of the deck. Looks like a ton of fun!

This deck needs some help. Im hoping to add a few cards but Im going to have to go to the store for that. If you comment please check if the card you recommended is in my inventory if it isnt that say it is not! Thanks. P.s. Im already adding Armageddon

I don't know about that. I think just going Armageddon + Splendid Reclamation is probably better, especially since it gives you redundancy of both combo pieces (Ravages of War, Catastrophe, etc and The Mending of Dominaria, World Shaper, etc). Either way, prepare to be hated.
