Well at the time of the original combo I was unaware of the mana ruling on Stony Silence. So I need mana from somewhere and then it'll work.
LE resolves, you dont sacrifice anything unfortunately because of Sigarda, Host of Herons. But I get ENGC and Harbinger onto the field without casting them. At the end of that first turn your creatures are at -2/-2. I pass back and you pass back. On my upkeep Harbinger triggers and your creatures are at -3/-3. This kills Angel of Jubilation, Gaddock Teeg and the unimportant infect guy.
At the end of my turn I madness out Biting Rain. Again it isn't cast from my hand and its the only spell of mine for this turn to satisfy Rule of Law. That puts you creatures at -5/-5. Which kills off Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir and Leonin Abunas removing Hexproof.
From here it becomes much simpler. On your turn I flashback Ancient Grudge to remove your Orbs of Warding. Now I can target you. Then on my turn I can flashback Increasing Confusion or any other kill method that doesn't come from my hand.
The much quicker method that I found earlier dodges even the mana problem. Discard 3 Elvish Spirit Guides to make 3 mana, then suspend Hypergenesis and put Humility or Energy Flux (or both if you play something) into play or any other number of enchantments with similar effects. From there your deck is annoying, but far more manageable.

Sorry for all the edits, I realized you still have hexproof from Orbs of Warding so after the Biting Rain all of your 5 toughness creatures are gone removing hexproof from your artifacts allowing me to flashback Ancient Grudge on your turn and then flashback any kill condition on my turn such as the aforementioned Increasing Confusion.

I figured out how to break your effect! I can start out with no board state and break through every piece.
Very easily I'll be sitting at 7 hand size so I'll have discarded an Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite before LE resolves. It was never cast so she stays in my graveyard.
LE resolves. ENGC comes into play. Her static ability kills your Gaddock Teeg and minuses the rest by 2.
I discard from hand size Biting Rain the madness effect bypasses your KP the same way suspend does. ENGC survives the effect easily but your creatures are at -4/-4. That takes care of Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Platinum Angel and Angel of Jubilation.
Don't think I missed anything there... But then again you could stop that whole chain by adding Rest in Peace. It was defintely fun cracking the wall lol

Argh! Thanks for pointing this out, Maximushogarth. My lack of attention is disturbing.

Hey man I think Altar of the Brood is way too slow to mill an opponent on its own. If milling is your thing, there's more efficient cards out there!
Jace's Erasure, Memory Erosion, Hedron Crab, Jace, Memory Adept, Trepanation Blade help with permanent milling from the top of my head and if you want to keep it mono-blue. Also, Jace's Phantasm goes very well with the theme and as an alternative option.
