Hey Inkmoth sorry to bug you -- did your friend ever make that windgrace list?

If so - then yeah, it's more oppressive than iona in casual. Iona feels like a preemptive ban to prevent iona-servant locks (seems simpler to assemble than Karn, the Great Creator + Mycosynth Lattice locks and Stasis + stasis parity breaker locks)

That's quite helpful, IAmTheWraith though my followup question: how often do you need to deal with indestructible creatures? The only ones I've seen played in cEDH are Keranos, God of Storms (which rarely if ever becomes a creature), maybe Kefnet the Mindful , but I really struggle to see many other "targets"
You make a great case about its other effects, though.

I'm curious, as I don't get a lot of cEDH at the moment. How are you finding pox? I understand that it rips hands of those who are doing well ie have ad naus'd into a silence or some other niche circumstance, but otherwise the effect altogether hits 2(ish) lands from each player, the sacrifice creatures would be great if it were all, but it lets your opponents choose what to lose.
Maybe I'm just being nitpicky, but while it is a lot of effects strapped to one card - they're significantly more underwhelming in competitive environments (I would imagine).
I'm happy to be proven wrong, I'm just curious as to your reasoning.

Such a shame that we don't have a hapatra in the deck along with yawg' ;~;

With regard to The Abyss - though I'm not the primary person to talk with on this: in cEDH it is likely to have a pretty low impact (meta dependent). Of course it's great against decks that rely on very few creatures, but at four mana for an enchantment which could be removed before you pass the turn (making it a 1-for-1) it is quite low power.
The majority of decks can assemble their win from very little, some fringe decks require a number of creatures together to win - these are often considered lower power, but against these The Abyss shines.
Cards like Nether Void are fantastic when you're able to break parity (like with Mishra, Artificer Prodigy ) but in this deck we would have only Liliana, Defiant Necromancer . Furthermore we're semi reliant on other player's on-stack interaction to stop us from losing early (consider why we don't run Defense Grid ). The downsides don't stop there: we can't win when void is out!!!
