MLS91 on Relics of Fear

I get the flexibility you're talking about in terms of Thespian's Stage in comparison. However ill keep that in mind when i comes to play testing when i get the ability to in the future.

Lotus Petal can be chained infinitely with the scrap trawler line thus another back up of infinite mana for Tergrid's Lantern . I don't like Bubbling Muck because of its symmetry as you've also noticed but did proxy in (until i can get my hands on one) the Jet Medallion

I like the idea of Blast Zone but can't justify the loss ill take as well since it effects the board

Syphon Mind was cut earlier because instead of a use once sorcery regardless of the "value" it accrues, Grim Haruspex is both more explosive in draw power and more easily recurable within the confines of both mono black, and the deck itself.

to note a conversation with some fellows from my play group however there will be a couple adjustments incoming and as follows,

-1 Liliana's Triumph for +1 Grasp of Darkness

-1To be determined... for +1 Toxic Deluge

the reasoning being, in an attempt to understand or prepare for the hypothetical weakness of the deck (aggro/token strategies) i've determined that adding some spot removal (lack of opponent having a choice) to accompany the sacrificial removal spells (opponent has the choice) as well as an additional boardwipe in case of "oh shit" moments that being said there is also the possibility that Grasp of Darkness may eventually be replaced by Executioner's Capsule due to it being both an artifact and recurable.

What are your thoughts?

Regarding swapping vesuva instead of thespian's stage, I like stage because it can copy anything anytime. I value the flexibility of it more than the mana it costs to activate. But thats personal preference.

Regarding Dreamstone for Lotus petal, I've never liked petal personally. One and done mana rocks are best used in cEDH decks or decks that can abuse card draw to make up for the disadvantage. I like Bubbling Muck , although it is symmetrical especially with urborg. Again, personal preference. Lastly, another option in this slot is Jet Medallion

Blast Zone - Deal with artifacts and enchantments

Syphon Mind - Draw 3, each opponent discards 1, you get their stuff. All for 4 mana, the value!

Budget per card? As I know chains would fit nicely with anvil and yawgmoth's will is just value.

Blast Zone - Enchantment/other removal

Thespian's Stage - Utility/copy coffers

I would cut 1-2 of the less impactful zombies in place with some more card draw, since you only have about 5 sources of it. +1

Profet93 on The Only Thing We Have to Fear... Tergrid EDH

To be fair, I never said I was good at stax, only like it and trying to overcome a lock. Speaking of locks, I notice your contamination bitterblossom lock. Have you thought of adding additional redundancy in the form of Infernal Darkness ? It doesn't need a token unlike contamination.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth - If you got $ and want to improve coffers

snow covered swamps can allow you to swap mutilate for Dead of Winter for slightly more efficiency given you aren't running urborg to fuel mutilate.

Vona's Hunger or Liliana's Triumph - How often do you find yourself "ascending?"

Mind Twist - Only hits one opponent, but early ramp into this can be devastating. Also works as countermagic bait. for X on 1-2.

Yawgmoth's Will - I'm assuming you would have added chains and this given budget, what's the budget per card?

Cabal Stronghold for a stax deck seems slow, I would swap in a Blast Zone (to deal with artifact and enchantments) or another utility land such as deserted temple or thespian's stage to utilize coffers, copy opposing utility lands, or politic opponents.

Last few suggestions for now, but you should include some of the draw lands in your colorless lands. They can really help you out in a pinch/late game when you have the mana to sink into them if you haven't hit a mystic forge etc.

Arch of Orazca, Bonders' Enclave (With all your +1 stuff easy to use)

Also maybe add in Blast Zone for some extra mass removal options (remember it can be a double edged sword)

Deserted Temple - Untap coffers

Thespian's Stage - Copy coffers or opposing utility land

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth - Upgrade

Dark Deal - Synergy

Ancient Tomb - Ramp

Blast Zone - Deal with artifacts/enchantments

Profet93 on Tergrid is Poxerific

People are going to try and remove your commander, as your deck is centered around him. As such, protecting him is key.

Imp's Mischief - Counter counterspells, redirect targetted removal/draw/extra turns, etc.... super utility

Deserted Temple - Untap coffers

Thespian's Stage - Copy coffers or other utility lands

Since you are playing pox with lots of creature removal, you might want to consider Infernal Darkness or Contamination + Bitterblossom .

Feed the Swarm - Good removal

Blast Zone - Not needed but nice to have, another way to deal with artifacts/enchantments

Given you're saccing your own lands too, have you considered adding fetches and Crucible of Worlds ? It could really offset Lake of the Dead

I got some ideas for cuts should you need. I HATE this commander so much, deck looks pretty good +1

Blast Zone is a very good land, probably better than Tomb of the Spirit Dragon. Endbringer is a good finisher, I would rate it above oblivion sower.
