Leyline of the Void Discussion

Unless Living End becomes tier 1 again then the "hoses cascade" argument for these cards seems like it would hurt yourself more than them. Aren't there better options like Fulminator Mage and Thorn of Amethyst for Damping Sphere and Surgical Extraction, Leyline of the Void, Tormod's Crypt etc. for the graveyard? It seems like the "non zero amount of times" that you would hurt yourself on the cascade with these sideboard cards would be detrimental if you're trying to consistently get through a long tournament.

Hi Chiberia, thanks for the comment! I didn't know about this cool combo, and seems super unexpected and fun. I'm afraid I will not include it though in the deck, here's why:
The combo works only if both pieces are available, and I don't run the tutors necessary to make them reliably be in my hand. This means that the cards must be already good and in them on their own, but unfortunately, they aren't. Leyline of the Void directly goes against my principal win conditions, that is tapping creatures like Mortivore with Phenax, God of Deception's ability. If those cards get exiled, the yards would be all empty (apart from mine, though I don't plan , and so my possibility to win.
On the other hand, Helm of Obedience has the problem in being an effect with an X cost. My deck doesn't ramp much, so investing all my mana on such an X activated ability is pretty much worthless, considering I would most often than not flip something useless or just not flip anything at all. The chance of flipping an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger once in my life isn't really appealing to me.
The two cards both cost about 15$ and 20$ respectively. Another reason to not risk including them, even though the combo is able to kill an opponent point blank.

There is a two card infinite combo for mill:
Since the card never hits the grave, Helm of Obediences trigger never stops, milling there the entire library out.

I don't normally comment but I see someone else also loves the idea of edh mill :)
IMO in commander spells that are targeted like Fraying Sanity or Curse of the Bloody Tome are worse than global effects like Memory Erosion. It doesn't matter if it's 1v1 commander, but anything in a group setting makes them worse. Stuff like Hedron Crab and Curse of the Bloody Tome can too slow for 100 card decks. You're not guaranteed to play them early and by the time you mill 10 or 20 cards they'll have their commander and some other nonsense to just end the game. Some people play Kozilek, Butcher of Truth so milling them out is impossible without Leyline of the Void
Some cards which might help are Ashen Powder Whispering Madness Soul Manipulation Dissipation Field Quest for Ancient Secrets Avatar of Woe Body Double Consuming Aberration Guiltfeeder Nighthowler Sepulchral Primordial Wrexial, the Risen Deep Entreat the Dead Wight of Precinct Six

Would a couple Flagstones of Trokair be worthwhile? Because of the wording, you can get your shocklands after upticking Vraska, Golgari Queen. Obviously the problem is that Flagstones of Trokair isn't fetchable, and is legendary.
I'm curious as to your reasoning for Captured Sunlight. Of course it has the possibility to hit a free kill spell, but it can't hit Vraska, Golgari Queen and it only gains you four life by itself. Wouldn't more Kitchen Finks be a better replacement here since it would be another good fodder trigger for Vraska's uptick? And unless it is Path to Exiled, it also gains you four life.
Do you really think you need four Qasali Pridemage mainboard? It seems like 2 or 3 of them can be in the sideboard against decks that don't use rely on artifacts or enchantments heavily.
You have A LOT of graveyard hate in the forms of Scavenging Ooze, Dryad Militant, Relic of Progenitus, and Surgical Extraction. Something to consider would be to buckle down on one type of graveyard hate that does everything you need. Maybe Grafdigger's Cage or Leyline of the Void if you have the budget for it. Relic of Progenitus is really good as well, maybe just up it to four to make room for other stuff.
Lastly, I have many friends that get great use out of either Gaea's Revenge or Carnage Tyrant in the sideboard against control. Hexproof and uncounterable are just major powerhouses that control tends to not be able to deal with (admittedly miracles can deal with them a little easier with Terminus). Choke is definitely great if it lands, but that's a big "if" with control.

DragonKing90 - Funny you should mention that - last week, I went to Modern FNM in my LGS with a Mardu Pyromancer deck with no sideboard or any Liliana's in the main or even a single Blood Crypt and came in third with 3-1 score. I will try again this week to see what happens.
I do believe and stand by my statement - I think that decks should have more focus on their mainboards. Would you go to a Modern FNM where everyone has to have 8 card sideboards?
In modern, single-minded focused strategies are powerful - Hollowed One, Infect, Storm, Dredge, Affinity - but are able to be stopped by a single silver bullet - Solemnity or Leyline of Sanctity or Leyline of the Void or Shattering Spree. This makes pre-board and post-board games feel wildly different. Heck, it makes post-board games where you draw your answers wildly different from post-board games where you do not.
I do not think this should be a thing as it puts so much weight and expectations on the sideboard.
I am glad you liked the idea of sideboarding before the game. It was not a loaded question, but a genuine exploration of how to make the game actively better. I am of the opinion that any part of the game is up for debate and especially those that have stayed the same since forever.

I see you suffer a bit from burn and storm. Why don't you add some Leyline of the Void in your sideboard?
