Aw man, I should have known you were actively avoiding playsets :p cool challenge, dude!

This looks like it can screw over a lot of people ;)

I'd recommend Steel of the Godhead, Edge of the Divinity, Ghostly Prison, and perhaps Sphere of Safety. i'm a real sucker for enchantments, so I could keep on going ;)

Also: Wall of Souls+Valor Made Real is epic! You could also use Souls of the Faultless.

Ignoring the on-theme cards, the ones that jump out to me first are Gravitational Shift, Secure the Wastes, Progenitor Mimic, and in a three color deck I'm not sure you can support Cryptic Command all that well.

You can probably also get away with one of either Propaganda or Ghostly Prison - I'm not sure you need both since you can tutor one up if you need to.

Well things that come to my mind for child are:

Reanimator: child needs to hit the grave to blow up the world so things that bring stuff out of the grave would be good.

Grave Shenanigans: slightly different from above in that you focus more on Grave Pact and Zulaport Cutthroat effects. I also find Grave Pact effects are great for control and allow you to hit the opponent with ease.

Group-Slug: doesn't win much but is funny. acts a lot like chaos but doesn't necessarily have chaos effects might have a lot of everybody draws effects and loses 1 life for each drawn card or something similar.

5-color control: this is very broad so I don't really have anything to say here...

Combo: board wipes are a great thing to have go off right before you play your combo and win so child makes combo easier.

Pillow Fort: child is a great rattle snake and you have access to all colors so you can pick the best rattles and pillows in the game. Engulfing Slagwurm, Price of Glory, Ghostly Prison, etc.

Hey, I play a queen deck myself (Blink Monarch) although my overall strategy is a bit different than yours I'm curious about the pillowfort cards in your list. Multiple people have suggested Ghostly Prison type effects but it seems to me in playing I'd almost rather pass the crown around so I get a token and draw if possible, if not giving incentive to attack other players is good too. Do you think trying to hold onto Monarch is worth it?

Inspired by STAX and mono-brown decks of legacy. This has been my go-to for modern nights at my LGS. Great fun to play... although its win record is just average. Probably because my local meta doesn't favor a lot of creatures. Magus of the Tabernacle, Ghostly Prison, & Storage Matrix are very tough for many creature-heavy decks to deal with.

Worst matchups = anything that doesn't play many creatures. So, the sideboard is geared towards dealing with Burn, MUC/Jeskai, & MBC/8-Rack. Playing against Tron is also difficult, because Tron doesn't care much about being taxed. Either it surgically-extracts an Urza land, or it loses.

Suggestions are welcome. I've considered adding Chalice of the Void, which would require me to retire Culling Scales... and that wouldn't exactly help out Metalwork Colossus to come out.

I've also considered swapping out the current creatures for a Kuldotha Forgemaster + Blightsteel Colossus setup.

It doesn't feel like there are enough tax effects here. Here is a list of EDH Stax cards for your consideration. I would suggest Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, Grand Abolisher, and Aven Mindcensor as a good place to start.

I like what you're trying to do, but you literally can't cast anything but elixir until turn 4. not having a turn one in modern is dangerous, but not having 1, 2, and 3 means you're dead. you also dont have any removal, so maybe we can kill 2 birds with one stone. you're in the right colors for Path to Exile and Terminate. combo decks like drawing cards too, right? so maybe Wall of Omens could help you stall and draw you into your Felidar Guardians quicker. i'm also a big fan of Ghostly Prison, but that one has a bit less luster in your situation.
