I'm looking to build a grixis superfriends deck and am looking for these cards. I have just updated my binder with everything I currently have.

PhotogenicParasympathetic on Quest to 30 Walkers. And ...

Of those stax pieces you list, Meekstone is fine, since it only affects Sliver Queen herself from your deck (or rather, that's the only creature that wouldn't untap that matters as an attacker), and shuts down opponents trying to attack you. The others are all fairly weak. Those are typically used as ways of stalling the game - playing them early to slow down your opponents. The problem is, in a walker deck like this, you don't have many ways to get around their effects to make them one-sided, and you really need your mana to be able to deploy your more expensive threats. You can't afford to not be untapping your lands.

Good job on the cuts so far. I would still recommend cutting Angrath, Captain of Chaos - his 2-use ability that makes a 2/2 and then either a replacement 2/2 or turns the first one into a 4/4 isn't great. Regardless of whether or not you decide to go in a more creature-ish direction, he's just not that strong. The menace ability only becomes good if you've got a LOT of creatures in the deck, and ideally big ones that will trade favorably when they do get double-blocked, so even if you decide to take this in a more tokeny direction he's not likely to be impressive.

Xenagos, the Reveler is nowhere near being a Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip or a Gaea's Cradle . Those are both lands, so they're harder to remove, and at least Growing Rites adds mana after a board wipe, plus can help you find creatures if you don't have any when you play it. And more to the point... are either Growing Rites or Gaea's Cradle good in your deck? If not, then he's not either. He makes 2/2s with haste. That's fine, but not strong. He makes a very small amount of mana. That's also fine, but not strong. His ult is nearly useless to you.

Compare Angrath and Xenagos to the other walkers you have that spit out creatures:

Vraska, Relic Seeker makes a 2/2 as well, but hers has menace built in, and more importantly, her other two abilities are VERY strong.
Ugin, the Ineffable makes a 2/2 as well, but his effectively draws you a card when it dies, and his other ability is quite strong.
Liliana, Dreadhorde General makes a 2/2 as well, but hers also draws you a card when it dies, and she's got two more very powerful abilities.
Garruk Wildspeaker makes you a 3/3, and ramps you regardless of whether or not you've got a creature in play already.
Garruk, Apex Predator makes a 3/3 with deathtouch, and has two very relevant other abilities PLUS a player-killing ult.
Elspeth, Knight-Errant only makes a 1/1, but she ticks up while she does it, or can grant a powerful buff to a creature you already have, and her ult is game winning.
Elspeth, Sun's Champion only makes 1/1s, but makes three at a time, and can also board wipe.
Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast only makes a 1/1, but if your opponent can't make you block with it his other ability makes it become free removal.
Saheeli, Sublime Artificer only makes a 1/1, but does it for free and as many times as you can cast noncreatures in a turn.

Ancient Tomb , Mana Vault , and Mana Crypt are probably the hardest to replace. Tomb could probably be replaced by Crystal Vein or Svyelunite Temple or just another land, same with Flooded Strand . The mana rocks(and Mox Amber ) could be swapped with any of the mana rocks in the sideboard.

The Ajani Steadfast , Elspeth, Knight-Errant , Thassa, God of the Sea , and Venser, the Sojourner you would probably want to swap out for evasion effects ( Ghostform , Levitation , etc) or other voltrony stuff ( Sword of Vengeance and stuff).

Finally, the weird stuff that hates down creatures ( Crawlspace , Elspeth, Sun's Champion , and Retribution of the Meek ) could be replaced with another sub-theme, if you swap out the rest of that stuff as well.

To be honest, hating down big creatures is a meta build. My playgroup is a lot of non-competitive combo and big beats, and this deck can prey on both of them pretty well.

ZendikariWol Yeah, he's on the list to acquire. I've made some interesting financial decisions, like purchasing mythic edition Elspeth, Knight-Errant , instead of other planeswalkers. No one ever said I was a wise man

Child of Alara was a good suggestion, and the reason you want reanimation and recursion is because other will play board wipes. You can focus your deck around getting rid of non-land permanents, your opponents will still have Damnation and Wrath of God .

Your land creatures will die, this is unavoidable. You need to plan for this, so recursion will be important. Along this theme, I imagine Crucible of Worlds should be an auto include.

You should probably look into ways to protect your lands. Living Plane and Nature's Revolt will turn all lands to creatures, so people will be less likely to board wipe. You can also lock the board with stuff like Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite . Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Elspeth, Knight-Errant can provide additional protection.

Terra Eternal dont work cuz it gives your opponents lands Indestructible aswell. Sylvan Awakening for green and Elspeth, Knight-Errant 's ult i guess for white. Omniscience ? for blue?

Bet it's Elspeth.

We know she has a golden mask via Athreos, God of Passage thanks to her artwork in Elspeth, Knight-Errant .

We also know she has used God weapons before. Godsend .

I bet she defeated Erebos, God of the Dead , stole his whip and has been tracking down Bolas ever since.
