Okay... this thing will make your brain hurt...

The deck revolves around the interactions of a few cards: Shuko or Nomads en-Kor comboing with either Cephalid Illusionist or Daru Spiritualist. You can target either of those creatures infinitely, causing the toughness of the spiritualist to grow infinately, or having your entire library milled away by the Cephalid.

If you can go infinate with the spiritualist, you can then sacrafice it to the Starlit Sanctum and gain infinite life.

If you go infinate with the Cephalid, you will mill yourself until you hit a Gaea's Blessing, shuffling your graveyard back into your library. YOu then continue to mill yourself until you hit a another blessing. COntinue you this until you have a gravestorm count of about a billion, and then cast Bitter Ordeal. SUPER AWESOME.

The Bitter Ordeal combo is harder to set up than it looks, so you have to really plan ahead. Don't worry too much about Tornod's crypt, as you have two blessings, and a Bitter Ordeal for as little as 12 can completely wreck an opponent's deck.

Living Wish not only acts as an amazing tutor, but it also has a second function of a toolbox card.

Aven Mindcensor is for decks that sem to be tutoring for something scarier than what you are doing. Keep in mind that the Aven does not negatively effect your Living Wish. If you feel like you ned to cast him, do so, and then allow your partner to burn them out, or wait for a combo to develop.

Boseiju, Who Shelters All is for those pesky counter spell decks.

Ethersworn Canonist is for super fast decks and for decks like storm.

Gemstone Mine is for any time you need a land.

Tarmogoyf is for anytime you just want a big dude who can smash face.

tabernacle at pendrell vale is for anything with tons of creatures.

Trygon Predator is for decks with either lots of enchantments, or lots of artifacts.

1x Viridian Shaman is for any artifact that needs to be taken care of immediately.

1x Kami of Ancient Law for any enchantment that needs to be taken care of immediately.

1x Yixlid Jailer for decks that have very annoying graveyard strategies.

I also have a more competitive version of this deck. If you would like to see it, here it is! Bitter Breakfast
