I'm not sure this deck can be cEDH, but here I go. Toxic Deluge , Natural State , Fatal Push , Dismember , Berserk , Beast Within , Bane of Progress . I'd pull Tangle Wire because it doesn't seem to be doing anything in this deck, as you want to cast your commander T2. Icy Manipulator is bad, and so is Mind Rot . I'd also pull Naturalize , Price of Fame , Blackmail , Despise , and Duress . Doom Blade is really awkward sometimes (I prefer Vendetta anyways), and I'd drop the Murder . For slowing down your opponents, I'd add Torpor Orb , Root Maze , Nether Void , No Mercy , Chalice of the Void , Grafdigger's Cage , Leyline of the Void . Maybe even Hum of the Radix . Just a point- Murderous Cut is better the more fetches you run Sorry about the long post, just really want this deck to work!

Having an Ensnaring Bridge + Bottled Cloister in Karn's toolbox is very helpful. Turn 3 Tron lands into new Karn, -2 into Ensnaring Bridge is a pretty amazing opener. Followed by Bottled Cloister makes it a hard lock, letting you win with Walking Ballista . Chalice of the Void is pretty great when cast a 0,2, or 3 CMC. Defense Grid gives control players a hard time. Dragon's Claw can help against burn and storm. Steel Hellkite is nice removal once you've got a wall up. Torpor Orb against Humans and other ETB effect decks. Universal Solvent is a nice catch-all removal. Witchbane Orb is great against burn and discard. I've been working on a Mono-G Tron deck as well, featuring the new Karn.

Cool deck. +1
Any reason you're not running Ghost Quarter over Wasteland . Naming Wasteland with Pithing Needle is a good piece of tech as not many people run Ghost Quarter . I've seen Turbo Depths decks usually run it that way with Pithing Needle MB over Abrupt Decay . Unless you're seeing a lot of Chalice of the Void in which case Abrupt Decay is a must have. (You could probably get away with 2 MB if that's the case.)
Dryad Arbor might be better off in the SB for another Sylvan Safekeeper . Unless there's a Pox player in your meta.

Demarge Going heavier on black is something Inthought about as well. I've played out tons of hands with this deck and the ones that aren't completely unplayable usually have good t 1/2/3 options in both colors. I feel confident the balance is good.
As far as Chalice of the Void you're right my cmc are pretty diverse and each one has critical components I need. Here's what I was thinking.
- 0: Shutting off Walking Ballista/Hangarback, Mox Opal, EE, And THEIR Chalice provides me a huge benefit, and Affinity is a deck that has the potential to be a very complicated matchup if I don't draw into removal before Walker, Ravager, or Overseer hit the field.
- 1: Death's Shadow, Burn, Elves, Goblins, and potentially Phoenix/Storm. Against these decks, Chalice for 1 makes 70% of their deck unplayable. By T3 I would have probably capitalized on what 1cmc disruption I have, in addition to their fast tempo playing out their hand.
I say potentially for Phoenix/Storm simply because it would depend on the state of the game when I have it if it would be worth it or not. If I've managed to hold them off from pitching Phoenix, it could be worth it just to shut off their enablers and cantrips. I also have the same odds of playing Ensnaring Bridge , which game 1 is a complete roadblock against most Phoenix lists. Storm I think it would be less reliable, but again shuts off cantrips. Against storm I'd board them out and bring in Leyline of Sanctity , Bontu's Last Reckoning , and Smallpox .
- Anything above 1: Probably never see it here.
Post-SB: Against the decks I listed, Chalice is a huge hurdle that still has potential to be game ending, even factoring in sb hate cards like Abrade or Ancient Grudge . Any of the other relevant match-ups, I'd adopt more of the traditional removal strategy.
Honestly though, writing this made me question if there's a card I'd be able to utilize more consistently to help my strategy.
