I've never built a stax-y deck before and I need your advice, I want to build this deck but have not yet bought some of the cards. Anything I should change before I buy it? Thanks in advance. Here is the deck, https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/yasharn-bitchboys/
So, honestly, I think what's going to be the optimal way to build Yasharn is not stax OR aggro. I think it's going to be a very "Lands Matter" deck. For example, take a card like Endless Sands. If you use the land's ability (notice Yasharn says can't sac NON-LAND permanents), you basically are getting 2 lands for one (with some mana investment.) Now, I think that if you built the entire deck around lands with abilities, I think you could do a lot. I'll try to post my take soon.

I have no idea what else to put in (well, I know I want it to have this as the game plan: (use your lands to blow up opponent's lands while ramping and playing Yasharn as much as possible to refuel, and once opponents are land screwed, beat them up with aggro.))
However, I'm not sure how to execute that. I was thinking of stuff like Winter Orb, which even combos with Blinkmoth Well, but that draws a lot of hate and therefore removal. I guess my question is this: How do I make my opponents have enough of a dilemma that they can't just win, but not enough of one to draw hate? (Also lands are great because so few people play land destruction in EDH).

I feel like you could take whatever stax Gaddock Teeg list and copy it
