Darksteel Plate + Nevinyrral's Disk : Infinite board wipes. Equip Mairsil with Darksteel Plate with a caged Disk. Tap Mairsil to wipe the board, him and plate are indestructible, he lives everything else dies. Every turn. Plate replacable with Soul of New Phyrexia (on the field or caged) and Nevinyrral's Disk is technically replacable with Boompile .

Gilded Lotus + Pili-Pala + Quicksilver Elemental : Infinite mana. All pieces must be caged, Mairsil on field without summoning sickness. Tap Mairsil for , activate Pili-Pala's ability to untap Mairsil and add any color, then use the remaining to activate Elemental's ability to get another copy of the abilites. Then repeat. Caged Anthroplasm makes Mairsil infinitely big, caged Hateflayer deals infinite damage, and Memnarch (caged or not) steals everything. This combo is pretty interchangable, with Mirage Mirror able to reset abilities in the same way as Quicksilver Elemental, Basalt Monolith, Mana Vault, and Magus of the Coffers can be Gilded Lotus.

Anthroplasm + Sage of Hours : Infinite turns. All pieces must be caged. Pay and to put 5 +1/+1 counters on Mairsil. Remove them all for an extra turn. Repeat until you get another combo piece (something like Hateflayer).

Good to see AEtherling and Torchling in here, definite must includes. Jace's Archivist also finds a nice home here.

Kuro, Pitlord and Demonic Hordes can lock opponents out pretty well. Helldozer or Trench Wurm also smash lands if you're into that.

Does exiling Fatestitcher give him the Unearth ability? If so, thats fantastic!

GoldenDiggle: Thanks for the suggestions! Caging Fatestitcher does technically give Mairsil Unearth , but only when Mairsil's on the battlefield (because his static ability only works on the field), so it doesn't really do anything. The reason Fatestitcher (and Dregscape Zombie and Narcomoeba) are in the deck is because after milling our whole library with a caged Mirror-Mad Phantasm, we get a free Narcomoeba, Fatestitcher is almost a free creature due to it untapping the land I used to unearth it, and then zombie is the next cheapest way to get a free creature out so that we have 3 creatures to flashback Dread Return. Then Dread Return hits Laboratory Maniac, and we flashback Deep Analysis/Faithless Looting or just cast a Cantrip.

I love Kuro as almost free removal. Forgot about him.

I was considering going the land destruction route, and I assume it's a viable strategy, but the decks I plan to play this against (the more competitive ones I play against) are Narset and Grenzo decks that generally don't care if they lose a land or 2 since they have pretty fast starts anyway with Lotus Petals and such. If you were to go land destruction in a Mairsil build, you have to remember Minion of Leshrac is just a better Demonic Hordes in this deck.

have you coincided adding more hast enablers to allow mairsil to use his tap ability's once he enters the battlefield? Anger, Blighted Bat, Fervor, Flamekin Village, Hammer of Purphoros andSkyship Stalker could be some options.

enortom: I had Blighted Bat, Anger, and Skittles in the original build, but I had no idea what to cut so I cut them since they only interact with Jace's Archivist, Anthroplasm, and Magus of the Coffers. But they could certainly make their way back in seeing as how anthroplasm and magus are part of some of my main wincons.
