cool idea, I would look at your mana curve and reduce the number of spells that you have that cost 7 mana and maybe put them into the 5 mana category,and because of your mana curve I would add more ramp Using more mana rocks Like Thran Dynamo Sapphire Medallion Grand Arbiter Augustin IV Jet Medallion and Pearl Medallion but overall if you can get the mana curve more in tune then it will be a great deck

6 The Hierophant: Grand Arbiter Augustin IV .

7 The Lovers: Pia and Kiran Nalaar shows it best, in my opinion. Other options might be Anax and Cymede or Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis .

12 Strength: Jolrael, Empress of Beasts or Jolrael, Mwonvuli Recluse .

17 The Tower: Sentinel Tower , or maybe Tower of Champions or Dynavolt Tower .

19 The Moon: Full Moon's Rise or Howling Wolf . Waxing Moon would be better if the moon was more in focus.

More thoughts to come.

Thanks for the suggestions! I could probably cut Grand Abolisher and Grand Arbiter Augustin IV to make room for Mana Drain and Flusterstorm, but I don't have the budget to throw in Sensei's Divining Top as well (just yet). We do actually have a stax player in our playgroup, and having more counters will likely be more helpful than simply taxing him back. I'll go ahead and make the adjustments now!

I just want to say that I do not believe the above statement is true.

Even if 3, even 5, heck, 10 casual players focus all their attention on one person with a cEDH deck from the very beginning, assuming some ground rules, the cEDH player, assuming they know what they are doing, will win, and here's why.

The major distinction between a casual deck and a cEDH deck that I've noticed over time is this: They are adapted to be optimized to different scenarios.

Casual decks are designed to be able to compete in an environment where some big creatures or a small army is present that may or may not be directed towards them, as that is what is commonly seen in those games.

cEDH decks are designed to be able to survive turn 2 or 3 infinite combos as well as heavy stax.

This means that casual decks do not run much of any, especially not instant speed, removal/disruption, because where they exist, they don't need it. It's evolution.

If someone produces infinite mana with Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy and no one else has a counterspell (or even if they do, the Kinnan player likely has one too to stop that), the game is over then and there in the Kinnan player's favor.

If someone plays Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, the opponents will not be able to escape the stax. The decks are designed to be able to stop any and everything any casual deck(s) could throw at them, that's what MAKES them cEDH.

Lots of creatures? Wrath of God. Guy tries to make more creatures? Sorry, do you not see my God-Pharaoh's Statue, or am I imagining it? Oh, you gave your creatures haste? Oh my! Overloaded Cyclonic Rift.

As you seem to have no qualms about ruining everyone's fun, might I suggest Grand Arbiter Augustin IV as an addition? Aven Mindcensor is another vicious EDH card, and Nevermore exists if you want to double down on the Drannith Magistrate effect.
