F27 boots to unresponsive, black screen following large update.

So last night I resolved an issue with my updates not actually installing. So honestly IDK what all was in there.. I know there was some nVidia drivers from RPMFusion in teh mix (due to a new 1070Ti being installed), I recall some KDE bits, and likely a new kernel. So anyway 1200-ish updated packages installed and after a reboot I get a black screen.

So more accurately, I get the normal bios splash, the generic Fedora boot screen with the 3 white rectangles then black. Keyboard unresponsive, mouse unreqponsive.. nothing works. So I rebooted, hit E to edit my grub line and added '3' to the end of the appropriate line.. and gained a text login. So right now I'm at an impasse. I know this issue has been encountered by so many people over the years, but never by me. The game plan is to look through the dnf update history and remove any nvidia packages if they were installed, and give a reboot a whirl. Maybe even unblacklist nouveau.

Any advice on a better way to tackle this? Thanks
