Always wanted to combo Lich's Mastery with Horizon Chimera

8 cards? Well My choices are as follows, it's certainly a hard choice to narrow all of my favorites down. I have been playing since Journey into Nyx.

Prophet of Kruphix - Was one of the leading cards in my first ever Magic deck that I built to play casually and for a time I played it in my first commander deck led by Vorel of the Hull Clade until it's later banning.

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon - One of my favorite planeswalker cards of all time that I play both in my modern tron deck as well as Atraxa, Praetors' Voice commander deck. Can turn a game around so easily, his power cannot be denied.

Omniscience - One of the reason I always liked this card was simply for it's art, and I enjoy doing splashy, big plays in commander especially in decks like my Kruphix, God of Horizons .

Westvale Abbey  Flip - Was a card that I built an earlier casual standard deck around involving Blisterpod , Cryptolith Rite , and other eldrazi scion generators to flip this card into Ormendahl, Profane Prince . If that wasn't possible, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger was another card that you could ramp into from tapping and then sacrificing the scions.

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger - I had one of these first in my above mentioned casual deck that was mostly simic goodstuff, and even after that I made a place for it in a Vorel of the Hull Clade , Atraxa, Praetors' Voice deck alongside the other praetors for flavour and now he resides in my Kruphix, God of Horizons deck where one of my favorite things to do with him is cheat him into play with Natural Order to make tons of mana for cost cards or Helix Pinnacle .

Winding Constrictor - Led a former standard deck of mine between Aether Revolt up until the later rotation all around +1/+1 counters. decks were all that I played in standard between Kaladesh to Guilds of Ravnica, only now with Ravnica Allegiance have I finally played a deck in different colours. I still have one in my Atraxa, Praetors' Voice deck for now until I convert it to superfriends fully with War of the Spark.

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet - I played this card a ton when it was in standard and I have held onto my two copies of the card which see a bit of commander play in my Edgar Markov and Oloro, Ageless Ascetic decks. Definitely one of my favorite black mythics of all time. I might in the future consider using them in a modern deck mainboard / sideboard if I ever build some deck in modern.

Cabal Coffers - There were so many cards besides this one I could still pick but this one really appeals to me as it embodies the power and greed that is black. Alongside Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth this is such good value, and I now use the card in two commander decks, Lord Windgrace and Gonti, Lord of Luxury .

Honourable Mentions of mine,

Dragonlord Ojutai , Hydra Broodmaster , Horizon Chimera , Bearer of Silence , Roil Elemental , Managorger Hydra , and Slivers!

Wolfsbane706 on Your Most Complex/Expensive InfiCombos/Game-Ending Synergies

Title says all, really. What are your most heinously complex/expensive infinite combos/game-ending synergies? For me, it would have to be mixing Consuming Aberration , Dragon Throne of Tarkir , Phenax, God of Deception , and some other creatures to basically just mill everyone out. Either that or using Drogskol Reaver , Horizon Chimera , and Laboratory Maniac to basically deck myself out and give myself a win.

PS: Inspiring Call , Lifecrafter's Gift , Armorcraft Judge , Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Song of Freyalise . I think going wide and getting out of board-clear range (ie: 3-5 toughness) is your best bet, rather than going big on one creature and getting it picked off. So some token generators might also be handy.

PPS: Chasm Skulker , Lorescale Coatl , Horizon Chimera , River Hoopoe . Building to enable on-draw triggers will also lead to consistency in finding Lizrogs with which to combo.

@OrgasmAndTea: Thanks for the feedback! I do have a Starfield of Nyx but decided not to use it because it makes me much more susceptible to boardwipes. Besides, I feel like Kestia's and the rest of the deck's card advantage allows me to keep playing different enchantments rather than try to reanimate destroyed ones. The combo you mention looks sweet, but I don't have any other life-gain engines, so I'm worried that Sunbond would turn into dead weight under many scenarios. I had thought about Horizon Chimera and I might try to find a spot to put it in.

Love it. I've always wanted to play bant colours in commander, to run the Sunbond + Fathom Mage + Horizon Chimera combo. Not sure if it fits here though. Try Starfield of Nyx. I was surprised it wasn't here already, since it's in the deck title ;)

Great take on the Sun of a Lich deck!

For consistency, I'd consider running maybe a third Approach.

If you wanted something spicy, Horizon Chimera gives an infinite loop with Lich's Mastery, but it would result in you changing the deck around.

Maybe Alhammarret's Archive over Karn? He seems kind of random in here. Maybe look into some lifelinkers as well? Maybe Orazca Relic for some card draw and life gain? Cliffhaven Vampire seems pretty cool too.
