As an additional cost to play Fling, sacrifice a creature.

Fling deals damage equal to the sacrificed creature's power to target creature or player.

readiejr on I'd (un)tap that! (suggestions please)

Pay 4 mana to tap The Chain Veil then if you have Ral Zarek in play you can use his +1 to untap it (for as long as there are enough untapped permanent's to tap, I suppose it's technically not infinite but close enough), as long as you control 4 creatures Xenagos, the Reveler's +1 will give you then 4 mana required to tap it for the ability again.

When using Ral Zarek's +1 for the combo I would recommend tapping any creatures that your opponent controls with abilities that could stop the combo, followed by their untapped lands to prevent any instants that could do the same.

If there are seven targets that you control that can be tapped this will also mean that you should be able to repeatedly use Ral Zarek's ultimate and barring some really bad luck with the coin flipping this would result in infinite turns too!

There is also another infinite combo with Kiora's Follower+Kiora's Follower+Wake Thrasher - use the Kiora's Follower's to untap each other, each time giving the Wake Thrasher +1/+1 until the end of turn, making him as big as you want.Once you've done this if you have a Fling in your hand you can cast it and sacrifice the Wake Thrasher to deal unlimited damage to your opponent.

Fall of the Hammer does the same as Fling if you don't have it, and is even more budget friendly

The problem is that the point of this format is to pay creatures' mana costs when they attack instead of when they are cast, but all of the t1-2 wins win without attacking. They just abuse the "free creatures" aspect of the format, and don't care about attacking because they can just Fling.

I realize you are prolly going to turn this into an EDH deck so here are my suggestions. An EDH needs 40 Lands and 60 Everything Else. Consider buying Kaalia of the Vast as your commander and invest in a Balefire Dragon. Another good commander is Scion of the Ur-Dragon. Also, you prolly are going to need some keyrunes and obelisks and a Gilded Lotus, i.e. Simic Keyrune and Obelisk of Jund. Because you are running so many colors a Traveler's Amulet couldn't hurt either. Nor could a Gem of Becoming. Whispersilk Cloak is always a good idea. Check out: Thran Dynamo, Ur-Golem's Eye, and Pilgrim's Eye. The Cluestone's are also a good mana option for you, i.e. Simic Cluestone.A card I highly recommend for you also is Knowledge Pool. It can help your opponets, but if you are running high cost dragons, it really can't hurt to exile them with this and play it for free. See Springleaf Drum, Rush of Blood, FlingJust a few ideas bud! I'm just a little bored lol

Distortion Strike and Monastery Swiftspear are out of my budget, and I find Wee Dragonauts as well as cantrips slow down the deck. Fling I'm considering. Thanks for commenting all!

Flinging a Wurmcoil Engine would also be fun... It's tokens could attack for free!

That wouldn't kill the opponent outright; Fling deals the damage, not Blightsteel Colossus. Since Fling doesn't have infect, the player doesn't receive poison counters, and would instead take 11. Good idea tho!
