I'm looking for any advice/opinions about the general content and direction for this deck, as well as any specific inclusions I should consider, before I finish building it and balancing it against the other decks.
I know I want to include an infinite combo, as it is a concept somewhat unique to Magic. I also would like a mill win-con and I want to use 3+ colors. I've already used black in both other multicolor decks, and I want to avoid it now. I've considered several options and drafted up some basic ideas listed below. At this point my running favorite is a defender deck with an infinite mana combo, with key cards listed.
My questions are:
What combo is best for the beginner to experience? One of these or something different?
What important archetypes are missing? Can't cover them all. Storm is a different combo; not sure I want two, and I do want to include an infinite combo. Hatebears, and land destruction are not done, but not sure they really need to be covered in this.
Are there any key common abilities I have overlooked? Landwalk is weird in these mono decks. Are convoke, suspend or cumulative upkeep important enough, or just overkill? Affinity/invoke requires another deck.
Note, planeswalkers break the budget for this. I could include just one
Nissa, Vital Force
but even that is pricey. I could include proxy/oversized cards but seems gimmicky.
