Hey there! Just read your Split Second article, very cool! Cool to see someone with similar thoughts of initially building Elenda as a challenge, but I love the change as it opens up more possibilities too!

I've been looking at ways for new win conditions with the death trigger changes, and aside from the ones you've listed, Elenda, the Dusk Rose can go infinite with Phyrexian Altar + Blade of the Bloodchief, provided she has sufficient counters to start with to offset her commander tax. Similarly the combination of Cordial Vampire + Anointed Procession = Teysa Karlov, which can go infinite with Phyrexian Altar.

Those combos will also work with Ashnod's Altar, but you need to include either Gemstone Array or Mycosynth Lattice, which I don't think is worth the card slot.

PS. Your Haakon, Stromgald Scourge tech is very creative. My deck is vampire rather than knight themed, but now I HAVE to include it when I brew a Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale deck hahaha

I'm working on an Elenda deck too. Not an expert but I can tell you to look out for some board wipes like Dusk / Dawn or Tragic Arrogance. They serve much the same function as Final Judgment or Settle the Wreckage but leave Elenda alive and buffed after the carnage.

Teysa Karlov is worth hunting down. She doubles the death triggers to add counters to Elenda, then she doubles the death trigger to produce tokens when Elenda dies. THEN she provides an anthem to all those tokens she just helped make. Just so much value when they're paired together.

Blade of the Bloodchief basically triples the output of Elenda's native ability. Not dirt cheap, but definitely worth hunting down a copy.

Fallen Ideal - Really works way better than it has any right to. Feels like it was built for Elenda.

Gift of Immortality isn't necessarily as important as the above options but it is absolutely rad.

Command the Dreadhorde takes advantage of your life gain sub theme, while serving to not only get Elenda back but anything else you take a fancy to across the entire board. Certainly not as slick and synergistic as the above options, but I like it.
