Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite Discussion

This might be wandering away from your idea too much, but could you reduce the cost and p/t, and limit what it can search for? Maybe search for a red or white creature, or search for a creature with the same p/t to get Wild Pair in there, too? I see this card being used pretty much exclusively to tutor up a finisher or enabler, something like Craterhoof Behemoth or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite.

Considered adding Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. It’s a little unorthodox addition but it can really help butt for creatures and wipe your opponents.
If you feel you need some extra life gain consider adding Angelic Chorus
Overall i think this is an awesome deck.

If you need convincing, how about this - someone Doom Blades an important creature you control like Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite or Kalemne. Instead of running another expensive threat, you can bring that creature back with Karmic Guide. Also, I don't see how this deck is supposed to be aggro when your curve starts at 5 anyways
Either way, if Karmic Guide isn't your thing and you want to run more threatening creatures, I enjoy Endbringer because he's big, he triggers Kalemne, he helps with combat, and he draws cards! He's a jack of all trades!
Speaking of draw, it looks like you could benefit from more card draw. Wheel of Fortune effects like Reforge the Soul and Magus of the Wheel will always be amazing, and if you are going to add Inspiring Statuary, it makes Howling Mine even better!

After a night of playtesting I have seen that the combo routes proved to be very brutal. In our meta, where lots of disruption is eminent, it is vital to take the lead (ramp package present) and stax your opponents the moment your first infinite route goes disrupted. With this package you buy time to re-order your pieces and retry for a second infinite loop. Recurring from being countered/controlled is also included in the package.
However, I feel there is always room to grow. These are the cuts I made for a new round of testing:
- Crop Rotation : Not vital for the combo lines and I needed room to improve
- Eidolon of Rhetoric : It was impactfull for the whole board, but also for myself after being disrupted
- Banisher Priest : Better option ready for testing available
- Kamahl, Fist of Krosa : This is one of my two relics from the past; letting go of the nostalgia...
- Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite : This is the second relic; there she goes...
- Nature's Claim : Enchantment removal was lacking in this build
- Tangle Wire : More impactfull stax piece
- Mangara of Corondor : Tutorable by Sisay and an emergency brake in case things go sour.
- Sensei's Divining Top : Nice synergy with Sisay. Love to try this out.
- Aura of Silence : Needed more enchantment removal and extra stax benefit as bonus.
Looking forward to a next EDH night! Let me know if you got some ideas. I want to go brutal 2.0....

Decimator Web is worth mentioning and so is Throne of Geth. She's pricey but Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is phenomenal for infect decks. Also, adding a Crawlspace or Norn's Annex can help a lot in multiplayer.
Nvm on the last 2. Just saw Ghostly Prison.

maybe you should look at Dovescape it combos very well with a some of the cards in your deck. Mentor of the Meek with dovescape means a ton of drawing only limited by your lands which this deck works around and cards which tends to be covered by the huge amount of cards mentor of the meek allows you to draw. Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite combos well with dovescape because you get 3/3s with flying and your opponent can't play noncreature spells. another card that you could add is Cathars' Crusade I think it would work well with your creature heavy deck

Loyal Retainers - could be a very good addition for the deck. And if You add Survival of the Fittest You can start by discarding any Legendary creature (for example Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite) tutor for Loyal Retainers, and reanimate Elesh Norn.
Have You consider Grasp of Fate?
Mana Vault, cuz it will increase speed of the deck
