Oops, forgot to link my cards correctly...

Hell's Caretaker + Thornbite Staff + Genesis Chamber/Desecrated Tomb

Some fun combos that can be a little janky:

Damage and life-gain combo

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Thornbite Staff + Sling-Gang Lieutenant. Tap Kiki with thornbite equipped to make copies of Lieutenant, sacrifice the tokens to untap with Thornbite, repeat for a damage and life-gain combo.

The same basic combo can be done in four parts using Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Thornbite Staff + token producer + sac outlet such as Skirk Prospector or Goblin Bombardment

Infinite reanimation (during upkeep)= Hell's Caretaker + Thornbite Staff + Genesis Chamber/Desecrated Tomb (or a reanimation target that ETBs with fodder such as Myr Battlesphere) + Initial Sac Fodder

Marrow-Gnawer has an... interesting... phenomenon with Thornbite Staff. But going infinite is typically considered uncool for most people.

I've been thinking about building one of these out. One thing I feel is missing here is enough pinger enchantments/equipment. In addition to Viridian Longbow, Thornbite Staff and Pathway Arrows are both options and I would run all 3. I wonder about Throne of Geth, does it have enough targets. There are the artifact creatures you are running and a couple of them have good synergy with Throne of Geth. That being said, while it's pricey, having Dockside Extortionist in here adds value in multiple ways. The ramp, of course, but it also can give you quite a few targets for Throne of Geth. I love Mage Slayer in here. It's a great pick! Probably outside budget, but every infect deck should have Blightsteel Colossus, lol.
