The first few years of playing more competitive EDH, my LGS implemented a maximum 3 iterations of any infinite combo during league matches played for prize pools, so to semi-circumvent this and ensure my combo would win the game without truly being infinite, I became very fond of Necrotic Ooze + Phyrexian Devourer + Triskelion or Walking Ballista, since it is limited to the CMC of your library. Total CMC of the deck was just under 200, so it was always good to kill three other players instantly. Still holds a special place for me.
Otherwise I’m with Gidgetimer...all of them!

Wow, great work MagicalHacker. Reformatted with card links and averages (rounded up) of the range of decks the combos are in. I figure a single number for each 2 card combo makes it easker to tally up and figure percentages later. So 120,411 two-card combos total.

Dictate of Erebos is another Grave Pact. Triskelion is infinite with Mikaeus. Ashnod's Altar and Nim Deathmantle go infinite with Wurmcoil Engine and are just all around excellent to have. They also go infinite with Mikaeus and Kokusho, the Evening Star which is another all around good card in general for this deck. Bloodthrone Vampire is another excellent sacrifice outlet. Also High Market deserves a land slot.
Excellent first draft.

Hey, I think you're being too risky here with Hermit Druid and the manabase because you don't have an infinite win condition combo to assemble after Hermit with Dread Return. You've added a Hermit safe guard by playing 2x of Swamp and Forest, but even with this you risk losing the game by trying to draw from an empty library before you can win. Currently other than the manabase the rest of your deck is built to use Hermit as a support creature for repeatable self-mill not an enabler to activate to win.
When you play Hermit with a manabase of lands as 1 ofs then want to build around the idea of winning right after you activate Hermit. Don't want to count on having a lot of turns, or even one turn afterwards. If you don't have an infinite combo to assemble from your graveyard after Hermit then you should add more basic lands to give you more turns after you activate Hermit to use the creatures in your graveyard with Meren and Genesis. In this case use Hermit as support for self-mill and add more basic lands so that you don't deck yourself. If you add more basic lands then Sakura-Tribe Elder who's excellent with Meren could be added to thin your deck of basic lands.
Currently, the closest line you have that's a combo after Hermit is reanimating Izoni, Thousand-Eyed with Return and sacing the Insects. This however not an infinite combo, not a sure way to win the game, as well as needing Meren on the battlefield and Victimize in hand to reanimate a sac outlet and an aristocrat who can be the win condition.
One Hermit line that doesn't require Meren on the battlefield and gets all the cards you need to win from your graveyard is to reanimate Eternal Witness with Return and recur Victimize. Have three mana to cast Victimize and sac Witness for Mike + Trike. Reanimate Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion which wins you the game no matter how much life your opponents have. Any line using flashback Return requires you have at least three creatures on the battlefield. Hermit is one of these creatures, need two more. Bloodghast can help since can reanimate it after Hermit by just playing the basic land you get with Hermit.
Good luck with your deck.

The deck is lacking good combos. I don't play any tutor (due to the theme's limitations) so it's hard to fetch the missing pieces:
- Vorel + Magistrate's Scepter with 3+ counters: infinite turns.
- Vorel + Darksteel Reactor: faster win.
- Vorel + Triskelion/Walking Ballista: with enough +1/+1 counters, doubling them can be player headshooting.
- Doubling Season + Kiora, Master of the Depths: immediate emblem.
Other nice card interactions:
- Cauldron of Souls + creatures that ETB with +1/+1 counters: easy recycle.
- Pir + any spike: pay to add a +1/+1 counter on the spike.
- Pir + any PW: free extra loyalty at each activation.
The following cards will be added to the deck:

Bisher habe ich durch Mill der Gegner oder durch mich selbst via Jace, Wielder of Mysteries gewonnen.
Kaya's Ghostform fahre ich in meinem ursprünglichen Deck und habe sehr viel gute Erfahrungen gemacht. Allerdings ist es ohne LED doch irgendwie recht schwierig mit Muldrotha

Sheoldred, Whispering One, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Triskelion,Phyrexian Devourer, Grave Pact, Necrotic Ooze, Magus of the Abyss, Black Sun's Zenith, Necromantic Selection, I think would all play nicely here plus many more since mike is the key to tons of mono black combos, but wow what a crazy commander, it almost reads "whether I win or not, you won't like me" lol
