The Abyss Discussion

OscarGoldman thanks for checking out the deck. I've been out of the game for a couple of months and haven't had time to update the deck, however, I got a few weeks of games coming up so I'll need to make some modifications ;).
You hit the nail on the head about Guardian Beast - I've added him as a flex spot due to my general artifact count but I've never seen to get good value of him. At this point I'm probably going to cut him again for something like The Abyss. I've been meaning to add Meteor Golem as this is a mandatory card for Chainer, cuttingGuardian Beast is a clear choice at this point.
I used to run Mikeus in the past but without the Nooze/Trisk/Ballista/Devourer combo. This was just a personal choice, mike and trike combo was semi disliked by our playgroup in the past, however, those restrictions are no longer in place, so it may be right to rebuild it that way. I would probably replace the current aristocrat package for mike and trike and trim some fat for more tutor(s) or board control. I like the direction and it may be the right way to go.
In regards to null rods and such, yea unfortunately there's not much we can do here outside of switching our win condition for that game/round. If you were setting up an aristocrat win then it would probably need to switch to a exsanguinate/torment of hailfire/living death finish. Gate to Phyrexia seems ok but you'd need a complete rework to include a token package, which I feel will be better suited in something like Xiaohou Dun Control deck.
Sorry for my post being all over - wrote this quickly at work. I'd be interested to discuss this further thought! Look towards a rework of the deck soon.

@cdkime: Actually, the Unaligned "Alignment" Could link me to some other characters of note outside of the Hasbro-Multiverse (Transformers, My Little Pony, Magic: the Gathering, D&D, etc.). Thanks, sir. I'll have to do my "further" research another time; I have Tina (E's Laf++ Fame)-Sized Fat to shred after the last things worth adding to my Boros Deck currently.
I'm sure most are trash, but I'd like an opinion anyway...
For Colorless Mana of a source I'm familiar with: Semnia Eubaints of the 2D Doujin Fighter Wonderful World (SPOILER: It's actually pretty cruel...) 2 Years prior to the main story has amnesia, and was abducted to be of some kind of Experiment involving Demon Magic, but after the 2 yr. timeskip to such events, she is acting as a weapon for an unknown organization, not being able to have a will of her own, as well as being Sleepy, & Having Lethargic conditions. Hilariously enough, her lethargic mind, her desperation to go home (According to some of her Winquotes), the thought of a Beastkin defeated by her actually made her think the World would end soon, & the fact she can use the Abyss (Not the same as The Abyss from M:tG.), a mysterious Space that kills upon entry, Makes me question Semnia's Alignment for the most part. She's neither Good, or Evil, but based on what is described, she's not Unaligned either, despite fighting as a Weapon, & not an organism...
But I digress. I'll leave it to others to decide... Thanks again, cdkime.

Voltron decks hate sac effects, to the point that most of them play Tajuru Preserver if you're playing against a lot of Sram, Senior Edificer or Uril The Mist Stalker cards like The Abyss Anowon, the Ruin Sage, Fleshbag Marauder or more prison effects like a Windborn Muse work well. What kind of combos are we talking about for the other players? many degenerate combos rely on graveyard recursion, like breakfast hulk. Rest in Peace and Grafdigger's Cage hose them. storm combos hate tax effects. Damping Sphere was basically printed just to give the middle finger specifically to tron and storm and it makes it nearly impossible for them to go off while it is out.

good you nudged me again ;-)
The deck feels abit slow. So I would suggest you gather some extra ramp/rocks and revamp your landbase abt. You have the colors to do this very effectively. I would be suggesting:
- Golgari Signet
- Green Sun's Zenith with Dryad Arbor (X=0)
- Ancient Tomb
- Remove a several lands that enter tapped. They slow you down alot. Replace them with fetch lands like Bloodstained Mire, Misty Rainforest and such...
- Raiders' Wake is very limited for a cmc of 4. You better want to cast something more impactfull.
- Vampiric Tutor as an extra tutor is a good catch
- Cursed Totem is a great Stax piece vs. many EDH decks
- Possessed Portal functions as a good finisher. As long as you have several cards that trick cards in your hand without calling it 'draw' (Necropotence, Dark Confidant...)
If you have any questions, then let me know. If you use Discord, then this is a great MtG place too: Discord MtG chat

Hi there, could you help me with this edh deck of mine, it is meant to be a powerful 80-90% deck without expensive cards like The Abyss. The deck is meant to use Contamination to lock down everyone else's board giving me all the time I need to get my win cons out.

Here is my mono-black stax deck, I know it doesn't have The Abyss or cards like that but they are way out of my price point and cost as much as the deck does right now.
I want this to become a serious powerhouse that can maybe go into cEDH or at least get up to 80 or so percent.

I really want to turn this Erebos Stax themed deck into a powerhouse deck that maybe gets up to 80 or 90% power as cards like The Abyss are too much for me to ever realistically buy. I can't tell what the deck is missing but it feels like it is lacking an important component.
