Oooh... Genesis Chamber is nasty. I like that. I like it a lot. Step 1: Pump everyone's board up. Step 2: Get the Aristocrats style cards out. Step 3: Board wipe. Step 4: Profit!

Where has Unexpectedly Absent been all my life? Oh, right, I rarely play white... Next to exile, best single target removal effect, right here.

Children of Korlis could be a serious cherry on top of things. Love it.

I'm adding all of these. Thanks for the suggestions.

Quite a lot of cards in your deck synergize nicely with Genesis Chamber. I think it would make a great addition.
Unexpectedly Absent is one of the best removal spells in EDH - just wait until an opponent uses a search effect (Cultivate, Green Sun's Zenith, Demonic Tutor etc) and respond with that to get rid of whatever you want to remove. It's much better than Mortify.
Since you have a couple of cards that you can pay a lot of life to (Toxic Deluge, Phyrexian Processor), as well as life gain doubling effects (Rhox Faithmender), I believe Children of Korlis could be really powerful in your list.

I started a whole series on this. mono green is the easiest way to go. however there are several combo decks (see Children of Korlis combo, and Monastery Swiftspear suicide red) thatcan be built for cheap as well.

Myself and a couple others have put together control lists that can be good on a budget. I made a devastating u/w bounce list that my gf won fnm with; abusing Reflector Mage style abilities. There are also several ways you can play aggro. stompy is probably the most competitive you'll get without spending a lot, but you're likely looking at <100 rather than <50 for it. That said, there is an incredible W/B tokens deck on this site that can be built for pennies. I've seen some good mono blue illusions techs out there, and even some relatively cheap burn decks. I built a <$20 mono red deck for somebody about a year ago.


Korlis life drain combo

Swiftspear combo this is the best one I could find that is still legal. most of the techs for this have Gitaxian Probe which has since been banned.

U/W control (intro series) ~ this deck is brutal. if you're interested in blue control, this deck is an excellent place to start in modern.

B/W tokens: budget ~ this man is basically the modern tokens aficionado on this site. This one is a little out of budget for you, but it has links to a both his competitive version, and his hyper budget version. so i figured it'd be the most useful to you.

Mono-blue illusions

I hope this is helpful, and here's another thing you could check out: The Cheap Deck Club.

best of luck, and if there's a particular kind of deck you're interested in, id be more than happy to help you tech it

What about Children of Korlis nice interaction with Aetherflux Reservoir.

If you have the mana to cast Eternal Witness and play Children of Korlis again you can kill off at least 3 opponents.

You can also use Rhox Faithmender over Eternal Witness.

No, Paying life doesn't cause damage, but Children of Korlis doesn't say "you gain life equal to the damage dealt to you this turn" "Damage causes loss of life" is reminder text that damage also causes loss of life, among other things.

Children of Korlis. rebel is an easily searchable tribal if thats what floats your boat. and rebels does have a infinite life combo

can we get a challenge?

Always good to see another Lin player! Have you considered running Animal Boneyard? It turns any land into Miren and can be tutored through any Enchantment/Aura tutor. I'm also a big fan of Phyrexian Processor because it can be used after gaining infinite life to make massive guys, or I can pay a smaller amount of life and just gain it back through either Children of Korlis or a Miren effect.

I'm a big fan of of your list and am gonna try some of your ideas out(like the Ranger package.) I just updated my list after about of year. If you're interested I'll link it here: Lin Sivvi EDH
