I really like this take on Eldrazi, +1 from me. One card I'm surprised you're not using, is Corrupted Crossroads. Any reason as to why not?
Also I'm very tempted to build the deck, as I have a majority of the cards. :)

I did have Corrupted Crossroads before, but in my testing, Evolving Wilds has been slightly better because it gets me a basic I can use for my non-devoid stuff, which was my main problem (IE, correct mana for Negate), and it helps thin down the deck as well but Crossroads is still a clutch land for this deck. I just personally believe it runs slightly better with Wilds but use whatever you'd prefer.

Your fliers are really weak to Take Down
Cards that give your creatures a boost in toughness would also be good in addition to the additional power

Fair enough, but what if someone negates your negate? Because that can happen, or dispel the negate, unsubstantiate. Heck even Geistblast will make your negate useless unless you have enough mana to 1. bounce or counter the first Take Down and 2. bounce or counter the copy if made.
All I'm trying to say is have a backup strategy in the case that you don't have the answer for.

Yeah a counter-magic war can and has happened before (although it is fun, lol) so i'll definetly consider Tide Drifter for the sideboard. My only qualm on that is that he doesn't really do much once he's on the field but it is a huge butt early so now I just gotta figure out what to take out.

Have you found that Magmatic Chasm is better than slip through space? Slip through space also lets a grounded body through, but also cost less and replaces itself. Your deck doesn't have any card draw, so I think that the cantrip is a huge upgrade.

I have used Slip Through Space before for those exact reasons but I have found using Magmatic Chasm helps open up attacks for Herald of Kozilek, Ruination Guide, scions and obviously Vile Aggregate to all get by opposing tokens/blockers on the ground.
So instead of making a solo creature totally unblockable, I make all of my creatures mostly unblockable because I don't really see fliers kept back for defense.
The card draw is nice but it's the sacrifice to just hopefully close out a game quicker overall by attacking with everything.

lol ive never thought of this deck, +1 from me. I built a Blue-Black Eldrazi Control deck which was my 2nd ever Standard deck, so im used to Eldrazis

You may have thought that AER didn't bring you any new toys, however you may have missed Metallic Mimic. Giving +1/1 to all of your fliers is going to be huge. I would remove some spells to accommodate it, as this is an aggro deck. Also, Spirebluff Canal is great if you can afford it.

Thats a good point. I just haven't updated this deck because i've been busy with my new standard: Rakdos Smashin'.
