Priest of Gix Discussion

It's been a while since I worked on this deck and just recently dusted off the tappedout list. I initially didn't include Mikaeus because he was fairly expensive and I didn't know how much I wanted to do with Undying.
As for the land-searchers, when I threw this together I was more concerned with getting colors, that's why I didn't list Sol Ring, Thran Dynamo etc. as they produce colorless mana mostly. I've been thinking about picking this up again, so I'll review everything again.
The Altars might be very nice to get more mana, but Scorpio's ability can get pretty expensive so I don't think we can churn out an infinite combo with it very easily.. I think it would work if you happened to have something like Pitiless Plunderer as well, with Ashnod's Altar you'd get , and could use the treasure token for at least one of the required /. I don't think it can go infinite, but you can combo as long as there are creatures on the board. Probably, seeing as we have quite a lot of other -1/-1 effects that might kill stuff, as long as we somehow get colored mana from their death...
Bog Initiate would allow you to filter the colorless mana into colored mana.
So it might be possible to go infinite, but you'd need a lot of cards in play to combo off. Sac outlet for mana, treasure or eldrazi tokens for colors, revival though undying or pesist..

Aetherion99 Super late response and it isn't even my deck, but the main doomsday pile is from top to bottom: Dark Ritual, Zealous Conscripts, Goblin Sledder or Mogg Raider, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Priest of Gix. When you cast Doomsday you need two mana floating to activate Grenzo, Dungeon Warden the first time. Once Doomsday resolves use your two mana to activate Grenzo, Dungeon Warden and put the Priest of Gix from the bottom of your library into play. Now you have three black floating. Use two of it to activate Grenzo, Dungeon Warden and put Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker from the bottom of your library into play. Activate him and copy the Priest of Gix, which triggers making three more black. You now have four black floating. Activate Grenzo, Dungeon Warden once more paying two more black (now floating two black) and put Goblin Sledder into play. Use his ability and sacrifice himself to give Grenzo, Dungeon Warden +1/+1 until end of turn. This gives Grenzo a power of three and thus you can spend your last two black to activate Grenzo, Dungeon Warden one last time and put Zealous Conscripts into play. Gain control of your own Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and untap him. Then use his ability to copy the conscripts, gain control of Kiki again and untapped him, and so on and so forth. Then attack your opponents for copious amounts of damage with some absurd amount of Zealous Conscripts. The dark ritual is there as a fail safe if your combo gets disrupted. There are other piles without Kiki that use Metallic Mimic naming goblin along with Murderous Redcap and Skirk Prospector, with the Priest of Gix and Priest of Urabrask making the mana. The Redcap can be sacrificed any number of times to the prospector as it returns with persist and the +1/+1 counter from the mimic counteracts the -1/-1 counter from persist. The damage trigger on Murderous Redcap is used to kill your opponents. If you don't have conscripts you do the same pile as the previous example but you can use kiki in place of the Priest of Urabrask.

4vatarofSleep BTE vs the Spirit Guides
They make mana a turn earlier. I really like BTE though, if I wasn't in love with my basic land arts I would probably play it over Sylvan Ranger. Well, the art and the amount of Blood Moons I used to fight. You're certainly not wrong to play it, or any of the similar creatures if it fits your meta.

ok so ill try to cut based around your desire (100 CAD or about 80$USD).
reliquary tower --> Darksteel Ingot
Balefire Liege--> Crackling Doom
nin deathmantle --> Swiftfoot Boots (nin deathmantle is really bad unless you are building around it)

That card + Vulshok Battlemaster = infinite ETB triggers
That card + Thousand-Year Elixir Mass Hysteria In the Web of War Lightning Greaves + Burning-Tree Emissary Priest of Urabrask Priest of Gix Kazuul's Toll Collector Kor Outfitter Puresteel Paladin(with metalcraft) Auriok Survivors(if you have a sacrifice outlet) = infinite ETB triggers, too
Basically, it's be a EDH combo machine.

For less than 200 bucks, this is a pretty good deck. Probably dont need more than 34 lands tho. Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, and Priest of Gix are handy. Also, Nim Deathmantle with Geralf's Messenger and Ashnod's Altar is a win.
