Megalomania you have Body Snatcher , Survival of the Fittest , Brainstorm , etc., to get cards out of your hand. Adding dedicated discard outlets that don't do anything else would hurt the efficiency of the deck.

Why not have reanimation as a backup strategy for getting Spirit of the Night out? After all, he's not much use to you if you ever draw the handsome lugnut. Entomb and Putrid Imp are classic enablers, with Necromancy and Exhume being reliable ways to bring him back. The perennially underrated Body Snatcher , however, handles both parts of the equation on his own!

Painter's Hulk: Flash Hulk combo, grab Viscera Seer , a 1 cmc elf dork, and Body Snatcher . With Body Snatcher trigger on the stack sacrifice it, return Hulk to play, sacrifice Hulk. Grab Painter's Servant (name Blue) and Academy Rector , sacrifice Rector to grab Animate Dead and reanimate Hulk. Sacrifice Hulk to grab Birchlore Rangers , Pili-Pala , and Grand Architect . Use Pili-Pala to generate infinite blue mana, tap Birchlore and the other elf dork for a green, cast Thrasios. Draw whole deck and loop to win.

I don't know why you'd do this over just playing Shuffle Hulk, but I guess it's an option and it's definitely degenerate. Just hard to haste up Pili-Pala.

I just realized I can win with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker in hand following this path

  1. Flash into Protean Hulk
  2. Get Karmic Guide and Carrion Feeder
  3. Return Protean Hulk with the Karmic Guide ability
  4. Sacrifice Protean Hulk tutor for Teardrop Kami and Body Snatcher
  5. Discard Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker to the Body Snatcher , then sacrifice Body Snatcher to get Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker
  6. From there you can continue with the combo

Also I just wanted to thank you all for helping me build this! I can say proudly say that this deck has made me so many fun memories playing against Control.

Thank You!!!

Vash13 Thank you for the compliment!

That is a good point about Victimize . I might reconsider mainboarding it again. The main reason why I took it out in the first place is that it gives a chance to respond since sacrificing the creature is not a cost but part of the spell resolving, so for the combo to become unstoppable you need another piece like Sylvan Safekeeper out. I opted for other combos that are harder to respond to, e.g. Necromancy at end of the turn as instant or a chain with Body Snatcher where you hold priority and respond to it's own trigger and use a sac outlet. Some of these are a bit more complicated but they are harder to stop (Since getting the nut draw in EDH is always a long shot)

Cut Angel of Despair Eldrazi Displacer Twilight Prophet Archon of Justice Dance of the Dead Sorin, Grim Nemesis

Consider Ravenous Chupacabra Orzhov Locket Junk Diver Dead Man's Chest Big Game Hunter Settle the Wreckage Angel of Condemnation Fiend Hunter weird way to actually permanently exile creatures with this since it's two paragraphs and has 2 triggers on the stack. Flickerform Puppeteer Clique not sure but may be able to permanently steal with this if you exile it with a different card so it's not in when the exile trigger goes off. Didnt look up the interaction/rules. Triad of Fates slow but works perfect for what you want. Maybe Body Snatcher this one is kinda a stretch-ish.
