This deck isn't too complicated: you just use and re-use a bunch of utility creatures while getting out your combos. Ramp up some mana, and control your opponents while doing your best not to broadcast that you are a threat. Play politics, until you can go infinite.

Most combos involve sacrificing creatures and returning creatures to the board infinitely. This, I jokingly refer to as Saccking off, because once you go infinite like that, you are essentially playing with yourself.

Combos that don't require a sac outlet

Loyal Retainers + Saffi Eriksdotter (infinite ETG effects, and infinite ETB) This combo gets around Torpor Orb-like effects.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion (infinite damage, infinite ETG, infinite ETB)

Combos that do require a sac outlet

Reveillark + Saffi Eriksdotter (net gains creatures!!)

Saffi Eriksdotter + Sun Titan

Renegade Rallier + Saffi Eriksdotter

Karmic Guide + Saffi Eriksdotter

Karmic Guide + Reveillark

Fiend Hunter + Karmic Guide

Fiend Hunter + Sun Titan

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Woodfall Primus

Sac outlets

Phyrexian Altar Infinite Colored Mana

Ashnod's Altar Infinite Colorless Mana

Sadistic Hypnotist Infinite Discard

Viscera Seer Infinite Scry

Altar of Dementia Infinite Mill

Auxiliary Combo Win Conditions

Zulaport Cutthroat (Infinite ETG => Infinite damage to all opponents)

Blood Artist (Infinite ETG => Infinite damage to target opponent)

Altar of the Brood (Infinite ETB => Infinite mill to all opponents)

Tutor out your Combos

Protean Hulk + a sac outlet, fetch Karmic Guide and Viscera Seer, return Protean Hulk with Karmic Guide's ETB trigger, sacrifice Protean Hulk and fetch either Saffi Eriksdotter or Reveillark and go infinite.

Tooth and Nail Tutor out any two creature combo. Luckily, this works even if you have no board position (ie. are lacking a sac outlet), because of the Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion combo

Boonweaver Giant + sac outlet = put in Boonweaver Giant, fetch Pattern of Rebirth, sac Boonweaver Giant, fetch Karmic Guide, use Karmic Guide's ETB Trigger to return Boonweaver Giant, use Boonweaver Giant to return Pattern of Rebirth and sac Boonweaver Giant again, this time fetching Reveillark, go infinite

Demonic Tutor fetches any combo piece without giving info to opponents

Worldly Tutor fetches creature combo pieces at instant speed to top of deck, but gives opponents information. Usually used at the end of the turn of the player to your right the turn before you combo off.

Survival of the Fittest Fills your graveyard while tutoring out your creature combos. Gives info to opponents.

Fauna Shaman Slower version of Survival of the Fittest

Eladamri's Call Instant speed fetches creature combo, but gives away information to opponents. Again, best used at the end of the turn of the player to your right before you combo.

Traverse the Ulvenwald Somewhat niche creature combo tutor, reveals information. Occasionally gets used to fetch lands if you are in a tight spot.

Recruiter of the Guard Fetches most creature combo pieces, but reveals information.

Eldritch Evolution Niche combo tutor, but works well on occasion. Gives opponents information. Can use Saffi Eriksdotter to fetch Renegade Rallier or Loyal Retainers or Karmic Guide to fetch Reveillark.

Buried Alive Niche combo tutor, puts creature combo pieces in graveyard to be returned with Karmic Guide, Reanimate, Victimize, Dread Return, or at least card:Karador.

Entomb Niche combo tutor, but can also put non-creature cards in graveyard at instant speed, which can be incredibly useful.
