Priest of Gix Discussion

I got this
- Sac Reveillark to Champion of Stray Souls targeting Village Bell-Ringer.
- As it leaves, Reveillark will return both Priest of Urabrask and Priest of Gix to play: giving you six red mana and six black mana.
- Champion of Stray Souls will return Village Bell-Ringer: allow the first trigger to resolve then hold priority on the second.
- Use floating mana to activate Champion of Stray Souls: sacrificing Village Bell-Ringer, targeting Reveillark.
- Allow Reveillark to enter.
- Allow second Village Bell-Ringer trigger to resolve.
- Sac Priests to Carrion Feeder for 2 counters.
- Use floating mana to repeat step 1.
Now we have infinite Red and Black mana, and an infinitely large Carrion Feeder.
Please do Release to the Wind.

I feel like there are a couple of nice combos that you already have most of the pieces for but are just missing one or two cards that would work well in the deck as non-combo pieces anyway.
Adding Nim Deathmantle would give you:
- Infinite sacs, recursion: Phyrexian Altar + Nim Deathmantle + Priest of Gix
- Infinite sacs, recursion, black mana: Ashnod's Altar + Nim Deathmantle + Priest of Gix
- Infinite sacs, recursion, life drain: Ashnod's Altar + Nim Deathmantle + Geralf's Messenger
- Infinite sacs, recursion, tokens and colorless mana: Ashnod's Altar + Nim Deathmantle + Abhorrent Overlord/Wurmcoil Engine
- Infinite sacs, recursion, life drain/gain: Chainer, Dementia Master + Phyrexian Altar + Abhorrent Overlord/Wurmcoil Engine + Blood Artist

I like Tainted Pact because i can use it to dig for anything I might need which, includes interaction.
As for you best bet with those other cards... you have:
You could try running the creature replacements for the other 2 spells and then running Sacrifice and Burnt Offering. You could also try running Bog Witch although, unless you can play it T1 or T2 it won't be able to give you the needed BBB for a turn 3 win. Another card you could run that could eat a slot but, with purpose, would be Mossfire Egg. For more ramp you can always run Seething Song. You can use the red to pay colorless or convert it to black with replacement effects like the Stars/Egg/Signet, Bog Witch or Priest of Gix. It would also give you one hell of an awesome Shattering Spree if you want to slow down other players (blow up mana rocks/tops) or Stax pieces.
If you are a turn or 2 slower because you don't have fast mana, you could also always play more creature kill/artifact destruction or something like Conqueror's Flail.
Keep in mind that running higher cost cards will make Ad Nauseam more painful so you'll draw fewer cards when you use it.

Especially with ETB dorks like Priest of Gix this could get interesting.

I now notice some incorrect things in my story points that other users have pointed out. Darigaaz is not really an elder dragon, phyrexian oil has more to it than I have mentioned, but the idea is to wet your apetite. All of the story bits mentioned span several Magic novels and are hard to summarize in a couple of sentences. One major thing I forgot to mention:
- The brothers war - Urza, Academy Headmaster vs Mishra, Artificer Prodigy, while mishra was helped by phyrexia in the form of their agent Gix (Priest of Gix). Mishra still lost, but their war had lasting implications on Dominaria. Card in the Dominaria Release Notes for this one is The Antiquities War

RazortoothMtg affecting creatures in all zones isn't necessary because we are already using Conspiracy for other zone type adds (which is mandatory because it's black and Priest of Gix is black only). Since both are equal within the combo, there's no reason to swap them out

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.
