Also, having seen that food chain gonti deck & depala getting lists, is it fair to offer a grixis flash hulk deck that uses Body Double instead?

Pay special attention to the section about stealing artifacts from your opponents' decks. I noticed you're not running staples like Sol Ring , so I would check out the most commonly played artifacts page at EDHREC to see what you can double up on by playing from your opponents' decks with stuff like Thada Adel, Acquisitor , as well as the page for Mishra, himself.

Hey Winter, thanks for the comments. I agree the difference comes down to a play style, and more than likely we experience different metas. For instance, lots of people at my local LGS started slotting Aura Shards because of Augustin, so under no circumstance could I afford to drop Torpor Orb (I've had games where Aura Shards showed up on the table 3 times for Christ's sake... I can't one-shot that away). Also, as Aura Shards decks ALWAYS bring dorks (there's a birds or elves hitting t1 in the overwhelming majority of my games), this is why a few months prior I highly valued Isolate , whereas you may have had more of a lukewarm reception to it.
Question for you.... I highly value my Leyline of Anticipation and use it to often circumvent the exact dilemma you are presenting (Do I play my artifact piece and potentially let something through that I could potentially answer, or do I hold flash open, hold my counterspell and my stax piece, and wait to see if I'm either end-stepping a piece or counterspelling). Have you tried running this card in your Augustin? It's to the point where I'm about to make room for Idyllic Tutor just because of Blind Obedience Land Equilibrium Rest in Peace or even a cheeky Copy Artifact .
Narset- I hear every point you make and yes, a 2 costed PW is absolutely bonkers. It felt absolutely lovely when I rebounded Long-Term Plans , dropped Windfall and had a top online, but 1 Rebound is going to kill your ultimate plan, and chances are in my deck her +1 is more likely to hit a non-applicable card than a applicable one. She served me well for 6 months though, don't blame you slotting her.
Relative to high-end cards and cost, I agree to an extent. If I had no budget restrictions, my deck would be Sen Triplets with The Abyss , Nether Void ,black tutor and ritual package, and 80% of the value on your list more than likely. As it stands now, I don't feel I'm at a critical disadvantage if my opponent has a Timetwister and I don't, but yes, there probably will be a game or two where it was relevant.
You know how it goes with our man.... you slot him, you're playing Archenemy the remainder of your EDH days, and counterbuilds are going to start showing up if you play your LGS long enough. I had to deslot my Consecrated Sphinx because it was either win-more or a 6 mana dump that was usually answered with 1-2 within 1 player turn... but in some metas this card is completely broken IMO.

Just recently built Phage the Unstoppable and I think this is my favorite voltron commander. Super explosive and scary.
Liking your list a lot. See a lot of mono black good stuff. Good utility land base. Nether Void is just evil and perfect for Phage.
My two cuts would be Lotus Petal and Thrull Wizard. Could probably benefit from trimming 4 other creatures and adding some Phage focused cards.

SynergyBuild I think I'll draft a budgetless list for this deck eventually, but I can't imagine it will be far off from this one lol. I realized after posting that Chains of Mephistopheles kind of nombos with Aminatou's +1 ability poorly. I also think you're right about Nether Void because I think my deck would be too hindered by it and breaking parity would be difficult to manage through it. If I drop Helm of Obedience, what else would be a viable win con to consider? I imagine I could just durdle until I win by inevitability, but that doesn't feel very surefire haha. I really like Pithing Needle to combat Food Chain lists, and Sorcerous Spyglass also feels pretty good since it allows me to peek at a player's hand as well. Chalice of the Void would be really effective in here too due to its versatility. But god do I wish I picked some up back in the day when they were less than $20, I didn't realize they spiked so much.

SynergyBuild IAmTheWraith I happen to have picked up Liliana of the Veil from back when I thought I wanted to play Jund in Modern years ago, but flaked out after I realized it was going to be too expensive to build with the price of Tarmogoyf at the time haha! I love Lili and I'll see if I can fit her in without cutting something incredibly important to the strategy. Words of Waste can be an incredibly effective supplement that feels synergistic with Aminatou's draw effect and I might like to try and fit it in as well. You guys are totally right about adding more discard effects to the deck too, because I'd like to keep any sort of responses from players at bay if I can. Thanks for the suggestions! I love them!
Also, SynergyBuild, do you think I could potentially nominate this for a tier shift from High Power to Competitive? I know I don't have the most favorable matchups against Food Chain lists like Tazri or Prossh, but I intentionally left that sort of coverage out due to my meta and I think the list could be tweaked accordingly to become favorable or balanced in that respect. I know my list can use more fine tuning, and could include more budgetless oppressive effects like Nether Void and Chains of Mephistopheles for example, but I think this list conceptually could be in the running for Competitive tier placement given proper changes. What do you think?

I kept that Lazav deck for a reason; to find a card to lockdown my opponents w/ Arcane Laboratory. That said, I'd like some suggestions for that as well...
As for cEDH Boros, I'd like some options in that are cheap & can compliment to both Rule of Law/Eidolon of Rhetoric, & is cheap enough to stay competitive (Possibility Storm seems hefty; is it REALLY that good as a card in cEDH?).
I'll be taking some suggestions. & no, Nether Void won't be added in deck 2 as I've been playing since Scars of Mirrodin (As a Beaten & Damned N00b, even now.); NOT Legends (Fun fact, I was only 1 when that set was first released, & I was playing old school Pokémon/Pocket Monsters TCG as a kid, but gave up on Yu-Gi-Oh! before the ZEXAL series was considered a thought, so I dunno how XYZ Creatures & ALL ELSE after that works (Also, altering your Star Level? What the Crap?!).)
I'll take some suggestions now, please. :)

First prototype done; though I'd like some ideas for a card that'll work well w/ Arcane Laboratory; & no, Nether Void doesn't count. Same for Erayo, Soratami Ascendant (BANNED), & Jace, Unraveler of Secrets. Suggestions are welcome. For now, I'll find a place for Jace, Unraveler of Secrets in Superfriends... o_^
