Originally a brainchild of LabManiac_Sigi, Aluren Yarok is a adaptive combo list dedicated to abusing Intruder Alarm as well as Aluren to go off with infinite draw and bounce triggers you get from the countless Elvish Visionary -type creatures and creature bouncing effects the deck runs.


Combos

Below there are a few examples of how this deck can go off:

There are plenty more infinite combos when you mix and match with Aluren , Earthcraft + basics, Intruder Alarm , Cloudstone Curio and pretty much every creature in the deck, especially Cloud of Faeries .

Win Outlets

With infinite mana, draw and spell casts you're free to destroy all of opponent's permanents with Assassin's Trophy and create infinite Bird tokens with Swan Song by countering one of your own spells repeatedly. The deck also runs a 1-card wincon in Finale of Devastation , which can be used to pump and give haste to your creatures for lethal amounts of combat damage. Finally, you also can simply draw your deck to a Laboratory Maniac and win that way as well.


Strategy

Gameplay-wise, you often have to make a choice between two main gameplans:

Combo With Yarok on the field

Aim for Cloud of Faeries , Shrieking Drake and an ETB draw creature. You can gather this package with the countless creature tutors the deck has, one of the most efficient being Survival of the Fittest due to our high creature count. You can even slot in a Flash Hulk package to gather this combo, and use something like Laboratory Maniac + Spellseeker for Tainted Pact to go for a Yarok-less win if he gets removed in response to Hulk's death trigger.

Combo Without Yarok on the field

If Yarok gets focused by counters/removal, and you can't seem to keep him on the field for some reason, aim to use Earthcraft or mana dorks with Intruder Alarm , or a combination of Cloud of Faeries + Cloudstone Curio / Cavern Harpy to gain high amounts of mana to cast Yarok, and go off with a card-draw creature like above.


In addition to the card-specific gameplans, each engine card provides you with tons of mana advantage by themselves, so depending on your hand, tutoring for one of them or one of their respective combo pieces often provides you with a critical mass of resources to go off.
