GinkoBaloba on Wanna Summon Cthulhu? It Doesnt Have To Be Cthulhu

Not sure if you're looking for infinites but Eater of Days and Phenax, God of Deception or Mindcrank and Duskmantle Guildmage for those instant wins. The Primordials are good also as is Chancellor of the Spires. I've also liked Filth, Trepanation Blade, Vela the Night-Clad, Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker and Mindcrank for aggro-mill decks. I would also suggest getting a few more mana rocks in there since your colors suffer from mana problems so Darksteel Plate and Dimir Signet for cheap stuff.

some zombie cards that have great synergy are Undead Alchemist and Noxious Ghoul. Throw a Trepanation Blade attached to a Phyrexian Crusader and you got a board wipe with a possible win with just one attack!

The three zombies i mentioned are definitely things i'd suggest including. and they are all fairly cheap except for the Phyrexian Crusader that is about $3.

take a look at my zombie deck that mixes mill and massive zombies to win. Zombies Eat Your Brains

Trepanation Blade one on one can lock someone out of mana and turns on geth, Bloodchief Ascension+Mindcrank = infinite combo that is interesting and also works with geth when not in combo

Visually, Trepanation Blade is a closer match to FD Link's sword, what with the double helix.

Hey dude.

Duress out, Thoughtseize in.

I think Trepanation Blade doesn't hold a candle to Sword of Feast and Famine, especially given the discard theme.

What do you think about AEtherize for Wash Out?

Could Dismember be Snuff Out?

How have you gone with Pact of Negation? Every time I have it in hand I don't want to use it. It's generally no use until turn four and even then it asks you to basically lose a turn of spell casting. I love the idea of it but in practice I find it wanting. Maybe that's just me.

Echoing Truth is probably better than Disperse, taking care of any token nonsense (Splinter Twin, anyone?) you might have to face. Might occasionally backfire though.

Talisman of Dominance is less clunky than Dimir Signet, unless the life loss is a concern.

I'm not really feeling Force Spike either. Maybe Mana Leak would be more flexible?

By the time you have them Hellbent, Guul Draz Specter is going to be behind the curve for mine. How about Duskmantle Guildmage in the creature slot instead?

In other words, have you considered the Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank combo? On top of the tutors you already have, Vampiric Tutor is obvious, but transmute works perfectly with this combo through Dimir Infiltrator, Shred Memory and Muddle the Mixture as both combo pieces cost 2 CMC. They can also fetch Blighted Agent which is one of your goals. On occasion I have transmuted for a demonic tutor in order to pick up that bomb I need. Even Lim-Dul's Vault will get the combo for you if you're keen enough to spend the life. So including what you have that's 10 spells total you can use to tutor for the win. The guildmage can win with Traumatize too, and isn't too shabby with Windfall and friends, although it's a bit mana costly. Don't forget that the Guildmage's life loss ability can stack.

Bloodchief Ascension does the job too, but ain't nobody got time for that.

I might have gone off track a little here, but if your Oona deck is any indication fast combo wins are your business. Love to hear what you think!

Rocknj06 only issue with using Dimir Keyrune as a target for your cipher spells is that it essentially makes the spells cost 2 extra mana for the initial cast, which is simply too slow.

I would recommend Trepanation Blade just for the added damage not so much for the mill effect.

Also i highly recommend running 4x Hidden Strings and 4x Hands of Binding as those cards alone can cripple an opponent hidden strings can be amazing for untapping your lands to play the higher costed cards in the deck post combat phase.
