Strangelove's Blood Drive
Originally was led to merging all of these combos browsing Daily MTG trying to break Driver of the Dead:
Driver of the Dead + Phantasmal Image + Grimgrin, Corpse-Born or Bloodthrone Vampire creates an infinite Grimgrin or Vampire. deCordova explains it very well in his article, http://www.wizards.com/magic/magazine/article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/ftl/194.
Grimgrin, Corpse-Born + Bloodline Keeper Flip + Necrotic Ooze creates an infinite Ooze. This takes me back to Gigatoast's infinite-ooze-updated-for-avr, which inspired a few variations of my own and clued me in to this combo (which many of you might also know).
(+ Blood Artist for an instant win.)
Civilized Scholar Flip + Phantasmal Image or Necrotic Ooze creates a very efficient draw engine. Because the copy is not a physical double-faced card, it cannot transform, but its ability still tries to do as much as possible. I use this combo to get my other two winning combos very quickly (often they'll get played the same turn ftw).
Comments and suggestions for surviving meta appreciated.
Don't forget to +1 if you dig the combos.

awesome deck. I had this brilliant idea while playtesting it. If you were to switch out Bloodline Keeper for Falkenrath Noble, same cmc, the combo will have a greater chanceof wiping out an opponent without even having to attack. pretty awesome right? +1

Thanks! But if I take out Bloodline Keeper Flip I lose my infinite ooze combo :( Besides, Bloodline Keeper Flip + Vampires + Phantasmal Image can give me a Lord of Lineage Flip Flip turn 5, which has won me a few games. I really have only been losing to mono-b cruel control.

Very nice combos, I never had any respect for Driver of the Dead until now! +1

Thanks Long_Con, I saw on Cockatrice Driver of the Dead with Vexing Devil , which I thought looked like fun so I started browsing possibilities . . . If Driver of the Dead was ETB, it'd be much better.

I've seen people posting that combo, there's an article by Gavin Verhey with a bunch of sick decks, one of them is a Torpor Orb deck (http://www.wizards.com/magic/magazine/article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/rc/195).
You're definitely right though: Driver of the Dead may be a piece to that puzzle. Time to try it out :)
