Retraction Helix Discussion
2 weeks ago
If you want an easy infinite combo do add to the deck, I'd suggest adding Banishing Knack and Retraction Helix to get infinite etb and cast triggers. Also, Paradoxical Outcome is necessary in combo decks like these. Lastly, and I know he's super expensive right now, Urza, Lord High Artificer just wins games and gives you infinite mana with any of your combos and a way to get your win con out.

You've ended up the same place as I do, when I get several ideas all at once and try to Jam them together. There are too many things built into one here - mill, aristocrats, tokens, Field of the Dead etc. It does a lot of things, but all of them poorly, as it lacks focus:
Altar of the Brood is a build-around. I've only seen it in OTK combo decks utilizing cards like Nettle Drone , Retraction Helix and 0-mana artifacts for an infinite combo which mills out in one big turn. Playing a deck out normally and just milling the opponent for a few cards a turn is simply too low impact. I actually think the infinite combo is possible in Pioneer, but haven't looked it up.
Field of the Dead is also sort of a build-around. Control decks make sure to drag the game out and get there, but most decks use cards like Hour of Promise and Elvish Rejuvenator (which you already have) to find the Fields and get them online quickly. Golgari Field decks are a good example of something that you could transition into from here.
I feel like your creature base could turn into an aristocrats deck that focuses on low-curve creatures with etb or on-death triggers. Then you can reanimate your whole GY with cards like Rally the Ancestors and Return to the Ranks for a big finish.
You rarely want to play more than 60 cards. Ghirapur Orrery , Authority of the Consuls , Dark Prophecy , Ulvenwald Mysteries , Second Harvest and Scheming Symmetry are all easily cut, no matter what direction you choose to go in.
TL;DR find out what you want your deck's focus to be, cut the cards that don't support it and find new ones that do.

A quick list of cards that can help.
If you end up adding many of those cards also consider 0 cost artifacts.

Also, why Myr Enforcer ?

I suggest an infinite combo:
Mix it up with Tooth of Chiss-Goria and you get infinite +1/+0 as an alternate win condition :D

Also, my planeswalker has a fun combo with Retraction Helix . Infinite untaps, but your opponent gets infinite untaps as well, so kinda risky.

Griselbrand123 in essence, you in order to perform this combo, you need to have:
Kykar out on the field
Jeskai Ascendancy on the field
In order of what you actually do:
Cast Retraction Helix on Kykar
Tap Kykar to bounce one of your 0 mana artifacts to your hand
Replay the 0 mana artifact. From here, three triggers will hit the stack as a result of you casting a non creature spell: Kykar generates a 1/1 Spirit token, the Jeskai Ascendancy trigger to untap all your creatures, and the option to loot through Jeskai Ascendancy.
Because Kykar is now untapped, you may tap him again to bounce the artifact back to your hand, replaying it and repeating this loop over and over again, generating infinite Storm, tokens, red mana, and practically the entirety of you graveyard.

What about an infinite combo?
Play Retraction Helix on Battered Golem , then instant free cast Tooth of Chiss-Goria tap it to give +1/+0 to something attacking that isn't blocked. Tap Battered Golem to take back the Tooth of Chiss-Goria . Free flash cast it again, untap Battered Golem .
