Protean Hulk package is an infinite win. Flash Hulk into Phyrexian Delver + Viscera Seer. Delver ressurects Hulk. Sac Hulk to Seer. Get Mikaeus + Walking Ballista. Sac Ballista to Seer, it comes back through Mikaeus with a +1/+1 counter on it. Remove the counter to deal 1 damage to an opponent. Sac the Ballista to the Seer. Repeat as needed.

Updates

I'm folding these theory crafting changes into the main deck here: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/tasigur-seasons-past-season-pastigur/

I will not be updating this deck further as I was wanting to keep it separate for the testing which has been completed.

Nice! Thanks for posting this list. How has this been working out for you? Is the Hulk package just an insurance policy to outrace Hulk combo decks with value?

Do you find this to be enough rocks to make Iso/Reversal? I can't afford a Mox Diamond or other 0 drop rocks besides Mana Crypt, in this case would you still find Iso/Reversal viable?

I have a Mystical Tutor in instead of a Dark Petition, would you argue for the petition.

Thanks!

what caused the changeee to a hulk combo. was seasons past falling short?

September 12, 2017 5:09 a.m.

knight611 there really isn't a hulk combo in here. Its a value hulk. You don't win, just get a tempo advantage. Even just flash hulk into seedborn and a mana dork is worth while for the plan we are going for.

I should have used Value Hulk. Still curious about your thoughts on Seasons Past.

knight611 In this testing Seasons past was removed as it is no longer an alternative wincon through Omniscience as Omni was cut. It was just a recursion grind spell if you lost Palinchron or PI. This is a testing deck. I'm unsure if I want to move to this. It is still up in the air.

Got it. Thanks for the insight. I am currently in the process of retuning my Edh deck and this list spoke to me. This list as well as the seasons past one felt like a natural evolution from what i currently have.

knight611 - with the most recent revisions Seasons Past is back in. With the transition to Dramatic Scepter it is once again a win through cursed totem.

LabManiac_Cameron- First off love the deck. I really like the different lines of play that are available that also use very differnt methods so that you can just be hosed by graveyard removal or counter magic. I am curious about how well Counterbalance is working out? if the average cmc of decks you are against were to be a bit more scattered would you still run Counterbalance? If not what would you run in its place?How well does Manifold Insights work out on average?

Thank you for the back and forth I have had a hard time figuring out what else to do with my deck for a while now.

Nice, been working on and playing a deck really similar to yours for the past few months. I can recommend bloom tender+freed from the real (dumped into Tasigur and lotus petal infinitely cast to get blue mana for reality shift/beast within). My build is less rock-heavy (thus plays null rod) so I can't get as much milage with isochron scepter.

Additionally, why phyrexian delver over body double? Less intensive mana cost, can get any creature in any graveyard and no life-loss. Also can get around torpor orb

Draken44 - Delver is used as secondary protection for the rest of your combo. If anyone has bounce and tries to get rid of a piece of your combo, you can sacrifice Delver, and then sacrifice the targeted piece. You can return that piece with the Phyrexian Delver's undying trigger.
