Priest of Urabrask Discussion

You might have better luck ditching the Orcish Vandal plan and instead just casting Gravecrawler or Squee, the Immortal over and over again to trigger Burning Vengenace, possibly with a sac outlet like Barrage of Expendables to deal more damage (probably a better sac outlet, couldn't think of one though). Alternatively, as said by TheDuggernaught, Havengul Lich + Heartless Summoning +Priest of Urabrask/Perilous Myr is infinite. Priest requires a Vengenace, Impact Tremors, or infinite mana dump to actually win though.

Maybe even Priest of Urabrask (not so sure about that one though...).
Cool deck by the way. +1

Priest of Urabrask has been dropped for Cloud of Faeries to many times Priest of Urabrask has just sat in the hand and only presented a good use with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker & Cloudstone Curio. Typically if you're already at the point where Cloudstone Curio is in play, the win con using Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Priest of Urabrask wasn't the best route to take. (Usually you have at least 2 or 3 other win cons at this point.

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.

I would also suggest Rakdos Shred-Freak since it is a 2/1 with haste.
Other budget options that you would love: Crash Through is kinda decent since it gives your whole board trample, and it draws you a new card, sorts pseudo-cantrip?
Priest of Urabrask is good since it provides 3 red mana upon coming into play, thus allowing you to play more creatures in.

Comparing this list to mine has got me thinking about quite a few things.
-All the fetch lands that work on mountains
-Moggcatcher (I know others have suggested this card, but Im not sure what you think about it)
What Id (maybe) cut:
-Reckless Bushwhacker Ive never had any luck with it.
-Magus of the Wheel is super good but it usually takes a turn to set up and then it still costs mana to use. However, I think its probably still better than Memory Jar. Of course, both of these are probably worth running. Im just a little salty cause all I have atm is Reforge the Soul.
-I think your artifact package should probably be cut. Due to artifacts being all over cEDH, Goblin Welder is really strong even without the other artifacts you have, but I dont see Daretti, Scrap Savant being useful for how slow he is.
What do you think about all this? Obviously some of my suggestions shouldnt go in your list and some of my cuts shouldnt be made, but Id love to know your thoughts regardless. Thanks for your thoughts!
