Sorin Markov Discussion
2 days ago
Not that I've played your deck before, but it looks like you already have a lot of ramp and card draw to be able to support a deck with an average CMC of 4.1 with no problem. If you really wanna take down the average, you just gotta get rid of Scour from Existence. Maybe replace it with Dismember, Go for the Throat, Damnation, or even Nevinyrral's Disk. The only 7-drop you have I actually like is Repay in Kind. I'd say the others are all expendable. But like I said before, from here it looks like you have plenty of ramp to support the deck just fine as it stands.
You also mentioned a goal of low life total, I might consider Sorin Markov for his -3 to get you to a low life total for someone, especially if anyone in your playgroup likes to gain infinite life.
Hope you found this helpful.

You really need fetch lands.
There are much better counter spells than things like negate. Spell Snare, Spell Pierce, Dispel, Second Guess come to mind. I feel like there's more ramp you could include if you wanna play early 8 mana spells. There are also other walkers that are solid here. Liliana of the Veil, Liliana, the Last Hope, insert whatever Jace here. There are a few ok Chandras. Tamiyo works too, Sorin Markov.
run 4 lightning bolts btw. Just do it, you'll thank me. Also consider the new Fatal Push.

Here are some upgrades that could be made,
Unbudgetizing the manabase, playing cards like Godless Shrine to help increase consistency in mana.
Serra Ascendant can easily find a place in this build.
Other options that I don't know what to replace with are Ravos, Soultender, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Noxious Gearhulk, Enlightened Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Debtors' Knell, Sorin Markov, and Liliana Vess.

I'm Mind Blown with the math, dang, I hope I don't have to count up to that someday.

At the moment I'm doing pretty good with this deck, but I guess that'll change next weak when the Infect player and the Kaalia player are back. Setting life totals to 1 with Master of Cruelties or to 10 with Sorin Markov is just a big f*ck you to this deck...
But I know, it's far from optimized and I will try to do so over the next months or even years.

Okay, let's do this! cracks knuckles I love the snarky tone of the description, btw :)
The stax elements of this deck seem strong, mostly. You're missing Winter Orb though. I would normally suggest Crackdown and Meekstone and Moat, but they interfere with Alesha :( Perhaps Smoke or Mudslide? I don't personally like Chalice of the Void in EDH, though, there's just too much variance in the mana cost of powerful cards. And since you're reanimating things anyway, might as well play Big Daddy Smokestack!
However, the land base seems...a little off. 29 mana-producing lands is REALLY really low, doubly so since you will have to pay some of your own "taxes". I know that the Karoo lands help a bit, but I still wouldn't trust this mana base without SIGNIFICANT testing. You might also find the Filterlands useful to mana fix (Rugged Prairie, Fetid Heath, Graven Cairns). I also never leave home without Reflecting Pool, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, etc. Basically, look at Lilbrudder's Leovold mana base and color-shift it XD
I'm actually not really a fan of Nahiri, the Harbinger in EDH. Is she just there for utility, or are you planning to use her ult? If the former is true, there are better ways to get card filtering. If the latter is true, what's your finisher?
That being said, planeswalkers can generally be really good in stax decks. You might get away with including some other walkers that play more into your gameplan, possibly Sorin Markov to reset lifetotals? :)
No Necropotence? :( I guess maybe the card is too much color commitment in tri-color.
If you're going to run Mox Opal with only 18 artifacts, I'd try and include the three on-color artifact lands as well.
False Prophet seems odd here, since you have the ability to reanimate creatures with relative ease.
Yes or no on Mox Diamond? Your land count is already low, but it's so good...
I hope that helps a bit! :) I'll leave more comments if I think of them, and happy deckbuilding!
