Trying to build something around the new Naya commander Atla Palani. This deck tries to combo off with Atla and different cards (Artifacts, creatures, even instants). Most of these combos rely on sacrifice outlets that sacrifices creatures for free, various Shapeshifter creatures with changeling and different loops that can happen.

Combos

1) equip Thornbite into Atla;

2) tap Atla, paying 2 mana to generate an Egg token;

3) sacrifice the token for two colorless mana;

4) 3) will trigger Atla, making a creature enter the battlefield from the library.

5) 3) will also trigger Thornbite, untapping Atla;

6) repeat 2)

This combo tutors all creatures from the library and, from this point, other combos can be performed.

This combo creates infinite tokens with haste and consists on:

1) having these two in the battledfield;

2) tap Kiki-Jiki to copy Zealous Conscripts;

3) with Zealous' ETB, target your own Kiki-Jiki. The important part of the ability is the "untap".

4) repeat 2)

UPDATE: Thinking about removing Zealous Conscripts, it can fizzle the sac loops and the only task of it in the deck is to combo with Kiki-Jiki. Kiki-jiki can combo with another creatures within the deck.

  • Karmic Guide , a sac outlet and a champion loop: This combo consists on:

1) put Changeling Berserker or Changeling Titan into play

2) exile Karmic Guide with Changeling's champion a creature

3) sacrifice the Changeling

4) Karmic Guide reenters the battlefield, triggering its ability. Target a Shapeshifter with champion a creature

5) repeat 2)

  • Eggs loops

The trickiest part of the deck is the loops with Egg creatures that can be performed. These combos are done with creatures that have all creature types (i.e. Shapeshifters with Changeling ability). The idea is to have a sacrifice outlet that sacrifices creatures for zero mana, sacrificing a Shapeshifter and, with Atla's ability, reveal another Shapeshifter. This can be done to grab the combo pieces the deck needs. For increasing success of these loops, the non-Egg creatures count is the lowest possible, and the most of creatures that aren't Eggs have abilities that can help with the loop plan. This deck have cards that maintain the loops going.

Skirk Prospector sacrifice goblins to generate red mana. Sacrificing Shapeshifters repeatedly, Prospector generates a lot of mana. Eventually these loops cheat Goblin Matron in the Battlefield. With Matron's ETB get Tarfire . Use one red mana to deal 2 damage to any target. Continue the loop until you put Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre in play. Sacrifice Ulamog to shuffle all cards in your graveyard back to the library. Repeat this process a number of times enough to burn all opponents out of the game. This combo may fizzle but in normal situations this combo works.

  • Protean Hulk synergies

Protean Hulk tutors creatures with total converted mana cost 6 or less. This includes some combinations like:

1) Karmic Guide + Universal Automaton (reviving Protean)

2) Skirk Prospector + Universal Automaton + Impostor of the Sixth Pride + Woodland Changeling (3 Shapeshifters to sacrifice and tutor for creatures)

3) Skirk Prospector + Universal Automaton + Irregular Cohort (3 Shapeshifters to sacrifice and tutor for creatures)

Explanations of (some) cards

  • This deck uses a lot of Shapeshifters. I highlight some of them:

Changeling Berserker and Changeling Titan : these can exile other creatures when enters the battlefield. In the worst case, exile nothing and they're sacrificed, triggering Atla. A good target for exiling is Irregular Cohort , because it generates another Shapeshifter when it enters the battlefield. They can combo off with Karmic Guide, Kiki-Jiki and a sacrifice outlet.

Chameleon Colossus : it have protection from black and can buff itself. With the Altars, this deck can eventually generate infinite mana. With this infinite mana, buff the Colossus to the point that it can mill an opponent library with Altar of Dementia .

Mirror Entity is probably the best non-combo creature in this deck. It can use its ability with zero mana to transform all your creatures into Eggs and killing them for having zero toughness. It can trigger Atla many times, tutoring a great number of creatures.

  • Goblin Matron can tutor Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker to combo or Shields of Velis Vel to egg loops;

  • Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves protects important combo pieces from removals;

  • Not Forgotten generates a token and put a creature card on top of the library, for being cheated into play with Atla's ability.

  • Most of the token generators of the deck generates Goblin tokens, that can be sacrificed with Skirk Prospector for mana. These loops often generate infinite mana that can be used to recast Tarfire repeatedly.

  • Runed Stalactite may be useful for the egg loops, transforming any creature into an Egg. With Ashnod's Altar , the deck can loop indefinitely, even if it reveals a non-Egg creature from the top of the library.

  • Blades of Velis Vel and Shields of Velis Vel transforms creatures into Eggs (mainly tokens), increasing the odds of the combo works.

  • Collateral Damage can deal with a small but annoying creature while sacrifice a creature (possibly an egg) to start a loop or, at least, cheat some powerful creature in the battlefield.

  • Tormenting Voice can discard a big but unwanted creature from your hand to draw probably better two cards.

  • Brought Back can bring back a creature and an artifact/enchantment destroyed by some effect and can return fetch lands, acting as a ramp. It can ramp a lot if it returns, for example, Krosan Verge and other land or Crop Rotation returning the sacrificed land and a fetch land (if the tutored land is a fetch land).
