Chief of the Foundry seems kinda weak since you're not playing that many artifact creatures, and Terrarion only really serves as mediocre card draw since you don't need mana filters.

Quicksilver Amulet, Belbe's Portal, Deathrender, Clone Shell, Summoner's Egg, Planar Bridge could help in getting your eldrazi out earlier, albeit at the cost of any "whenever you cast this creature" triggers.

Mystifying Maze, Miren, the Moaning Well, and Thespian's Stage are pretty good colorless lands, as well as land destruction lands like Strip Mine or Field of Ruin would fit nicely.

Sword of the Animist and Solemn Simulacrum could help with ramp, and Mind Stone is a good colorless mana rock. Also if you find that you have a lot of mana sitting around before you get your big dudes out, Everflowing Chalice or Gemstone Array could be pretty good

Farycane on ASHNOD'S VICTIM - "Prey for Breya"

Thanks a lot for this fast reply! Oh now I get what you wanted to Tell me that Breya is your Combo.

Okay if you don't have any copies left then Manalith is okay. But I really recommend Chromatic Lantern Darksteel Ingot Vessel of Endless Rest since they do the same as Manalith and something in addition. Indestructible/Land Fixing/Semi Recursion. If you can get your hands on one of them, put it in :)

Then what do you spend your Infinite Mana on if you don't have acces to Breya (because Imprisoned in the Moon or similar) They are played very much in my meta.

Gemstone Array if I noticed correctly combo 4 and 5 make colorless mana so this card would make it into colored to cast Breya and could make another wincon straight out the command zone with a sac outlet

I tried some games with this deck (not 1:1 same but very similar) and sometimes I just miss a color to get Breya out :D

Any tipps what hands to keep and what to Mulligan?

Deadeye and Peregrin I'm not sure if I take them out for an artifcat combo Whir of Invention another good one but triple blue is hard.

Tutor for pieces if you have parts already. But what to tutor if you don't have any pieces ? Isochron reversal or something Else?

Thanks a Lot for all the help!

My Atraxa deck found the following the best mana sources:

Pentad Prism

Gemstone Array

Crystalline Crawler


Druids' Repository

They all can be accessed at instant speed, multiple times a turn, especially if you have extra proliferation in the deck, and they all work incredibly well with cards like Winding Constrictor, Inexorable Tide, and Pir, Imaginative Rascal

Several times I've gotten 2 of these into play, and with something like the Tide in play, I've never had any mana problems whatsoever.

SamuraiNinjaSpy on kiki-jiki and splinter twin infinite combos

Umbral Mantle can combo with both, if you can get mana for the creatures. This can be done with any creature that can tap for three with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Earthcraft Phyrexian Altar or Ashnod's Altar and a creature that gives you tokens or a couple token doublers, Mana Echoes or a creature that gives you enough Eldrazi Spawns or Scions. It can also be replaced by Cloudstone Curio in many of these combos with Kiki-Jiki if you have a mana filter such as Gemstone Array or Skyshroud Elf. I run these things in my heavy combo deck for other combos, and I’ve figured these combos out over time by just playing the deck. These combos weren’t by design, they just happened on their own. Here’s the decklist if you want to see the options. Maybe you can find more combos that I didn’t intend, and perhaps some of those could add to the list.

Notable Exclusions:

Nettle Sentinel: is the first suggestion i hear often. but it's just not very impactful as a one-off. when you have three and Heritage Druid you're in the money, but as a one-off it's not great.

Doubling Season: meh, yes this deck generates lots of tokens, but there aren't a lot of great ways to generate oppressive value off of them in an explosive manner. Obviously I can sac them for any number of benefits, but most require mana or large bodies (like Altar of Dementia. Right now its on the maybe pile, in large part because it (fairly) paints a target on me the minute I play it.

Beast Whisperer: i don't have one, it will go in once I can get my hands on it.

Phyrexian Arena: will probably take the place of Deathreap Ritual once i get another one, also thinking of Necropotence in this slot

Fecundity: with Grave Pact effects i'd rather not mitigate the value i generate off of saccing my creatures with opponent card draw

Ashnod's Altar: got booted for Perilous Forays. colorless mana isn't great in this deck, as most of my board is very cheap and costs colored mana. can't rely on cards like Gemstone Array to turn colorless into colored mana, so its out. It is a free sac outlet, which is very good, particularly with the dictate effects. on the maybe board pending some playtesting

Gemstone Array isn’t good enough tbh

Based on the other spells I have found, these are the final changes I will want to make to the deck eventually. Since the card prices are so damn expensive, I can't do any of this now, but will work up towards these cards:

-1 Gemstone Array, -1 Negate, -1 Disdainful Stroke, -1 Stubborn Denial,

+1 Phyrexian Altar, +1 Forbid, +1 Force of Will, +1 Mana Drain.

With these changes, the deck will be absolutely complete.
