1.) The Gitrog Monster

2.) Combo-kill.

3.) The Gitrog Monster has a lot of casual variations, but it gets busted in competitive EDH if you plan to go infinite with Dakmor Salvage and any of the various free repeatable discard outlets such as: Earsplitting Rats, Grotesque Hybrid, Noose Constrictor, Oblivion Crown, Olivia's Dragoon, Oona's Prowler, Patchwork Gnomes, Putrid Imp, Skirge Familiar, Trespasser il-Vec, Tunneler Wurm or Wild Mongrel.

Upon discarding the Dakmor Salvage, The Gitrog Monster allows you to draw a card which you can use to dredge the Dakmor Salvage back. As you can see you have an infinite mill loop, BUT for every land you mill, you also get a draw trigger from The Gitrog Monster. Not only that, but in your deck you have one or more of these grave-shuffle effects: Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre or Gaea's Blessing. Milling any of those cards puts all milled cards back into your library, so you can keep racking up draw triggers until you have your entire deck in your hand.

At this point you can free cast Lotus Petal and/or Dark Ritual and then shuffle them back into your library to draw again by discarding a grave shuffler followed by any number of lands in your hand to draw them back and repeat. You now have infinite mana of any color in your hand along with every card in your library in your hand and the ability to recast any card in your hand as many times as you want. Simplest method of winning is just to cast Walking Ballista for a million mana but really any card that causes a loss of life that can easily be put back in the grave upon use so you can cycle it back will work. Also if your opponents have something like Leyline of Sanctity or any other protection card you can freely cast and recast your Assassin's Trophy and/or Maelstrom Pulse as many times as you want to bypass the issue.

But what if they exile your Dakmor Salvage? Use Riftsweeper to get it back and if that fails use your back-up Mirror of Fate to recur it after you've milled your library thoroughly with some value engine like Mesmeric Orb. You basically have to also exile their recursion cards to remove the land for good or use Praetor's Grasp as a silver bullet.

Why not just use a removal spell or graveyard hate spell/ability while the first dredge trigger is on the stack to interrupt the combo? Well, that could work, but keep in mind if they discard a another land card while its on the stack they can dredge off of that and run through their combo all while removal is on the stack effectively bypassing any number of removal spells equal to the extra lands in their hand. By the time the removal spell as has resolved they will have infinite black mana from Dark Ritual and a Lotus Petal to cast afterward allowing them to just recast whatever was removed or just win by hard-casting the aforementioned Walking Ballista.

If Tormod's Crypt won't work you could use Rest in Peace or Planar Void to stop it, but these decks run so many Naturalize effects because they know that's the only real effective answer you have to stop it.

Oh, and get this. If you can't find a discard outlet you can use your discard step to discard down to hand size to go infinite and win the game that way as the discard step repeats if an ability is triggered due to discarding down to hand size. Which means all you really need is the land which you can find with all the black tutors and green provides its own land tutor effects as well. Given you're also in green playing a turn 2 or 3 The Gitrog Monster is fairly possible which can be the same turn you win on.

The deck is too consistent at winning. People don't play it though, because certain interactions get very complex in rules interactions which means you need a solid understanding of how to pilot it, and those who do know how to pilot it find it boring as winning can be so fast and consistent it doesn't even feel like you're playing Magic anymore. Also the deck can get pretty pricey to acquire all the cards you need. That combination of factors is why it doesn't see much play otherwise it would be banned straight out of existence if sanctioned competitive EDH tournaments were more common in my opinion.

You play a lot of expensive creatures, i would suggest including a reanimator package: Animate Dead, Reanimate, Victimize, Living Death, Elspeth Conquers Death, Whip of Erebos, Entomb, Buried Alive, Olivia's Dragoon, Stromkirk Condemned. I caution you against cutting Door of Destinies, it's very strong. Instead I would cut Brave the Sands, Stensia Masquerade and maybe a couple of rocks. Check out my list: Edgar Aggro

OtherWorldlyShadow on Combo Feature Not Working

The combo is for an EDH Dredge deck. Golgari Grave-Troll, Underworld Breach, Gitaxian Probe, and Olivia's Dragoon. Play Underworld Breach, cast Gitaxian Probe, dredge Grave Troll, discard troll, repeat for as much life/library that you can.

I originally had the 3 without the Dragoon for a combo, and it was working, but after checking the combo page, I decided that I needed to at least make sure the discard outlet was considered.

Thanks Deadpoo111. I've got another madness deck which isn't held back by the vampire theme where I include Archfiend of Ifnir (amazing) and had Shadow of the Grave (though replaced it with Garna for the haste and lowering of the power level). Skirge Familiar would be great, I'll try him down the road but he's committed to my Gitrog right now as is Bone Miser. I also have Chainer in my other Marchessa Madness. Here's that deck https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/marchesas-sanitarium/?cb=1575939263

This one is more of a fun side project specifically committed to the Vampire theme, with a unique take that abuses Marchessa's +1/+1. The more on theme each card can be the better. In this case Olivia's Dragoon would be a great addition, to minimize the amount of non-vampire themed discards I have to include. Insolent Neonate didn't make the cut before because it was a one time use, but after you reposting it I've reconsidered. Of course it could work considering Marchesa's ability! It'd be slow, once a turn, but no slower than Merfolk Looter without untapped effects, and potentially faster if I got a Cordial Vampire out and another sac engine. Then it could be every turn as sacrificing another vampire to cordial would put a +1/+1 counter on Neonate, sac/discard/draw with neonate, then when they both return, I could sac a third to put counters on both, then sac Neonate again. Nice, fun tech!

Vampire themed everything! What else you got?

Two cards I will always recommend for madness decks are Shadow of the Grave and Skirge Familiar . They are among the strongest discard theme cards out there and will definitely improve the deck.

If you need more removal or better control against decks with creatures, I'd suggest Archfiend of Ifnir , the card is amazing and if you don't need it, just draw a card off it.

In general, I'd add more discard outlets, yeah I get the vampire tribal theme which totally fits and stuff, but discard like Chainer, Nightmare Adept and Zombie Infestation are amazing. If you want a more vampire themed stuff, try Olivia's Dragoon or Insolent Neonate .

Finally, and this is with every emotion I can muster, HOW DARE YOU NOT RUN Bone Miser ! That card was built for this archetype and you ignored it. To quote Norman Osborn from the first spiderman movie: "I offered you kindness and you spat in my face." That's you, you're the face spitter. Please for the love of god put that card in.

Nice list. I also used geth's verdict and praetor's grasp, ended up switching geth's verdict to Ebony Charm because one of the other modes is useful. You need to find room for Veil of Summer . it's fantastic! you need more basic forests (4 minimum) and discard outlets. recommend Wild Mongrel and Olivia's Dragoon
