Actually, Gyre Sage, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Viridian Joiner, and Marwyn, the Nurturer allow you to generate infinite mana (and sometimes infinite power/toughness) via Umbral Mantle, Gilder Bairn, and Sword of the Paruns when the Kraj gains the former cards' mana abilities.

But yeah, ramp never hurts either. I would at least remove Aquastrand Spider and Reason // Believe, those cards don't seem very impactful.

Ever considered making Momir Vig, Simic Visionary the commander and using him to tutor for Kraj and combo pieces?

Thanks for the suggestions onehitterquiter, Gyre Sage, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Viridian Joiner, and Marwyn, the Nurturer are all great ramp that I'm not sure I need. I should only need six mana to cast my general and then I can combo off. If I find that I do need more ramp these are all great options. Umbral Mantle, Gilder Bairn, and Sword of the Paruns's untap abilities are a little pricey and make it hard to go infinite like the deck wants to. Thanks so much for the suggestion. If there's something in the deck that you see as unnecessary or dead please let me know so that I can put in some more ramp or something. Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback ericchen2003 I definitely want to get a Laboratory Maniac for this deck, and have been unsure what card to cut for him. I am thinking Gilder Bairn as that Kraj is no longer the Commander the Bairn is less relevant.

(Also tracking down a foil version would be ideal, but will be difficult...)

Whoa thanks guys, very much appreciated!

Well my favourite combinations are W/B, R/W, G/U and U/B. I've always wanted to build a deck based on Experiment Kraj + Gilder Bairn combo, while the U/B deck could be control or something similar. Haven't an actual idea about the W/B and the R/W atm (I quite liked the concept of an exalted deck with Fumiko the Lowblood + Lightmine Field combo, though I'm not very sure about it). I generally prefer decks inspired by a combo (not an instant-win one, just a fun combo to play with) over aggro and straightforward tribal.

Experiment with different hydra/ +1/+1 counter stuff. I have two suggestions for this:

1) Lifeblood Hydra. Gives you some card draw and life gain for when it dies, could be helpful in some cases. I dont suggest going a full playset on this one, as its not as powerful as other hydras, it just has those death effects.

2) Gilder Bairn. Doubling the amount of counters in any given thing can be huge! Just pay the green bit. Every turn! If you need a tap outlet too, try Paradise Mantle. You get 1 mana, pay three, double as many times as you can. This can be an infinite loop with Training Grounds, but for this I would not suggest adding that too. Check out my deck (Emrakul turn 4) if you want to know how to build around that. Good job, and good luck with further adaptations!
