You can essentially go a few routes with this deck while maintaining tempo with a Mid-Range Shell
- The Nut Draw(S) : Turn 1 WinExample a. Command Tower, Dark Ritual, Entomb, Reanimate, Lion's Eye Diamond, Pact of Negation, Force of WillLine: Dark Ritual to cast Entomb, putting Auriok Salvagers into your graveyard. Reanimate it with 1 of the 2 black mana still floating. Cast LED, combo off with Thrasios into Laboratory Maniac win-con or Aetherflux Reservoir

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there is a ~ 1/3 chance of getting 1 of your 0-mana rocks in your opener. Not only that, but your chances for 2 are ~ 3/50. And that includes Lotus Bloom and Lion's Eye Diamond.

Overall I like the deck, but I'm wondering about a few of your card choices. I expect many of them are driven by local meta, but I'm still curious.
Aven Mindcensor - obviously a good card in Stax but doesn't really advance your strategy.
Birthing Pod - I saw your explanation above but this seems fairly inefficient compared to other cards you could have in its place.
I'm also surprised there is no Sylvan Library. It's a fantastic draw engine, low CMC and fairly inexpensive.
Thanks for the deck!

The ways to achieve these win conditions are either:
Auriok Salvager allows you to return LED to your hand and recast it, generating an unlimited amount of mana in any combination of colours. This can be pumped into Thrasios and draw the entire deck. You can either play Laboratory Maniac, cast Tendrils of Agony (recasting LED a few 1000 times works great for Storm) or use Aetherflux Reservoir (again, the multiple castings of LED work here as well).
With non-land mana sources in play that generate a total of at least 3 mana you can, again, generate an unlimited amount of mana in any combination of colours. Additionally, each time you use Isochron Sceptre with Dramatic Reversal you are casting Dramatic Reversal an unlimited number of times. This again works to draw your deck via Thrasios, kill via Storm with Tendrils of Agony or blow up your opponents with Aetherflux Reservoir.
This allows you to draw your entire deck via Ad Nauseum without killing yourself. This requires you to have Laboratory Maniac in play prior to casting this combo, or play him from your hand after drawing your deck then use any of your cantrips to draw one more card.

Im using Doomsday as a backup win con. Im thinking of replacing it with something that is easier to assemble. Would appreciate any help the group can provide. Thanks!
