Whenever a green nontoken creature is put into a graveyard from play, that creature's controller may search his or her library for a card with the same name as that creature and put it into play. If that player does, he or she then shuffles his or her library.
Verdant Succession Discussion

So the Combo I see is Incandescent Soulstoke + Verdant Succession . Activate Incandescent Soulstoke 's ability to put an elemental onto the battlefield with haste and Verdant Succession in play. Attack with it. Deal some damage. Then, when it dies at the end step, Verdant Succession triggers and searches out a new copy of that elemental, essentially giving you fake-vigilance!
The one thing to keep in mind with the upcoming tourney is the non-tribal limit. You only get 10 non-tribal cards, but with 2 Azusa, Lost but Seeking , 4 Elvish Mystic , 8 enchantments, and 6 Instant/Sorcery cards, you're looking at 20 non-elemental cards - unless you and your team have a defensible reason for including them as elemental cards...

Didn't mean to get on your case about the mana base - I've just seen people dump a lot of money into mana trying to "fix" underoptimized decks and it makes me cringe. Sorry if I came across as rude.
I found a few relevant cards you might've missed. In particular: Dichotomancy is an even bigger bomb than Eradicate , since it can steal all the creatures from an opponent's deck instead of exiling them. Mimeofacture is similar, but requires an investment of 4 mana per creature. Splinter is an Eradicate that requires an artifact creature. And Verdant Succession works like Remembrance for green creatures, except it brings stuff directly onto the battlefield.
Other (less powerful) options: Bazaar of Wonders , Eye of Singularity , Echoing Truth , Sever the Bloodline , Declaration in Stone , Retraced Image , Bubbling Cauldron , Pack Hunt , and Reflector Mage . If you have some way to copy Spy Kit , Biovisionary and Doubling Chant could also work.
In general, I think the biggest challenge you'll face is that effects synergizing with Spy Kit are kind of all over the place. There's board wipes, removal, staxxy control, creature tutoring... but not a lot of actual finishers. You've got to make room not only for precursors to Spy Kit (draw, ramp, tutors, etc.), but stuff that can win the game.
Maybe focus on one or two archetypes for the cards enabled by Spy Kit, then pick an unrelated win con? Or fill up on stealing/copying effects that can help set up Spy Kit combos but also be used offensively? I don't know... interesting dilemma.

I'm guessing the idea is to attach Spy Kit to a creature. Sac the creature with Ghave, Guru of Spores then use Verdant Succession to search for any other creature in the library because technically the sacrificed creature would have the same name as every other creature in the deck except for the other three legendary creatures besides Ghave. It would cost 3 mana for each consecutive use of this combo in a single turn. Verdant succession seems pretty useless in an EDH deck to me unless you have spy kit as well. Maybe I'm missing something though.
