Awesome deck! +1 for sure!

Doom Whisperer might be useful to fill your graveyard.

Smothering Abomination is a card drawing POWERHOUSE is a deck like this.

Decaying Soil might be a fun card to play around with... easy to get threshold and cheap to return stuff to hand. Lots of Deathrender combos too.

Final Parting could be a better Dark Petition in this deck. Doesn't give you mana back but basically tutors 2 cards instead of one, making it more flexible.

@Mishraharad, That's understandable. Reconsidering your stax pieces a better fit for your deck would be Flameshadow Conjuring + Felidar Guardian + Mountain or any land/artifact that comes untapped and can produce .

You have Flameshadow Conjuring in play and a Mountain . You then proceed to cast Felidar Guardian . Both the Felidar and the Flameshadow trigger. You'll always resolve Felidar Guardian 's ETB first targeting your Mountain to flicker and untap it. Then you can tap the Mountain to pay Flameshadow Conjuring 's triggered ability creating a hasty Felidar Guardian token. Because a token enters Flameshadow Conjuring does not trigger again, so instead you have the Felidar Guardian token's ETB target the original Felidar Guardian blinking the cat and having it re-enter the battlefield again which will also re-trigger the Flameshadow Conjuring . You then repeat, cat blinks mountain, mountain makes another haste cat token, haste cat token blinks original cat, until you have enough hasty cats to deal lethal to everyone.

Felidar Guardian is good as it can also combo off with Karmic Guide and Goblin Bombardment . Flameshadow Conjuring may not be an optimal stand alone card, but creating extra ETB's per turn will always give it something to do. Do note if your opponent kills the cat before you can go infinite you won't be able to reinitiate the combo for lethal by recurring the cat with your commander, as you'll have wasted the combat step doing so. However, if you do so with a Goblin Bombardment or Altar of Dementia you can then deal lethal as you'll have infinite tokens to sacrifice to anyways.

There are a few other lethal combos that crossed my mind that would also by-pass all your current stax pieces:

Mana Echoes + Goblin Trenches + Drownyard Temple = Infinite goblins, infinite colorless mana, and infinite landfall. Can be activated at instant speed on an opponent's end-step making the tokens safe from boardwipe.

Endless Cockroaches + Deathrender + Goblin Bombardment = The equipped roaches die going back to hand, Deathrender triggers putting the roaches back on the field equiped to be sac'd again.

Teysa, Orzhov Scion + Darkest Hour + Goblin Bombardment + any other creature = Sac the other creature, since Darkest Hour made the creature black Teysa produces a 1/1 white spirit token. Darkest Hour however makes the spirit token black, so sacrificing the spirit will produce another black spirit, and again and again for endless sac-effects.

I came up with a versatile combo a long time ago, where you need any sac outlet like Yahenni, Undying Partisan , any draw Engine that triggers on creatures dying like Harvester of Souls , Deathrender , Mortuary , and a creature with a cool etb ability like Gray Merchant of Asphodel .

Heres how it works. Have in play all the cards, equip Gray Merchant of Asphodel to the Deathrender , then sac him to Yahenni, Undying Partisan , that triggers 3 things at the bottom of the stack is the Deathrender trigger, that puts a creature from your hand into play attached to Deathrender . That resolves last. In the middle of the stack is the Harvester of Souls trigger that draws you a card. And on the top of the stack is the Mortuary trigger, putting Gray Merchant of Asphodel back into your hand.

The triggers resolve in that order creating a loop. Gray Merchant of Asphodel dies goes to the top of the library you draw a card then put Gray Merchant of Asphodel into play attached to Deathrender for infinite life drain and gain.

Hexaflexagon Thanks for the suggestions!

Together Forever is excellent recursion for Elenda, and gives out counters by itself so it doesn't take much else to make it worth it. It combos with Deathrender + Elenda + altar for infinte tokens, can recur Krav, and can recur anything for 1 mana with Cathars' Crusade or Unspeakable Symbol out.

I see your point for more removal. Though I'd focus on things that destroy or sac so I can get death triggers.

Thanks again, I'd appreciate an upvote if you like the deck!

Lhurgyof Thanks for the comment and upvote! The lack of Cabal Coffers, Contamination, and Bitterblossom is simply budgetary. All great cards, but excluding them saves money and leaves space for doing less mainstream stuff. Thanks again!

Revel in Riches is a back up win con that I'd like to keep. and I mainly used Flesh-Eater Imp as a target for my opponents to remove or I slide in some quick infect damage. but it won't hurt for him to go. Athreos, God of Passage + Hallowed Spiritkeeper + Deathrender = infinite tokens as long as they choose not to pay cost of Athreos, God of Passage especially if Teysa Karlov is on the board.

ShreddedByCrows thanks for the upvote and comment!

Most of your suggestions I have not included because of price. In the case of Grave Betrayal, too high cmc. Ethereal Absolution / Night of Souls' Betrayal / Tainted AEther + Akroan Horse / Infernal Genesis / Alliance of Arms etc, just not what I want to do I suppose, too much to work around.

Forbidden Orchard is nice, I'll consider it.

I do however, really like Enduring Renewal . It's a tough work around but combos with Deathrender at the cost of no mana... I will have to play around with it. Thanks again!

there are a few other cards that might work too: Thran Temporal Gateway , See the Unwritten , Summoner's Egg , Deathrender , Summoning Trap . looks sweet, always a fan of cheating out an emrakul.

Thanks again for the help and advice.

Good news is, I added Deathrender back in because with some effort(but not as much effort as threshold for my deck) it combos with Elenda, the Dusk Rose (or other counter synergies) and Together Forever + an Altar. So in the end I made my own, Elenda version of your combo, which I am very happy about.
