Built from Scratch non infinite combos on budget

Commander Deck Help forum

I just bought the Commander Anthology II and I really like Built from Scratch

I want to build in more win conditions with strong combos.

But I personally dislike infinite combos in edh and I don't like to do certain things to other players like mill them. It is just a personal preference thing (and my meta has one player who combos crazy stuff every few turns and then goes infinite for a win the majority of games). It gets annoying and all his decks do it. Im not doing a me too deck to compete. I built a meta deck for one of his decks and it worked, but it was so boring to play!! I want to win on consistent aggro and damage dealt to player with hopefully an overwhelming hit late game to an opponents life: Walking Ballista. I've read an article that modifies BFS, but always uses infinite combos. No likey! What are some big combos that dont go infinite I can build into BFS on a budget that I can also tutor or use pretty consistently? No cards over $2 (I own a Walking Ballista though). I do know or think the deck gets better immediatly if I reduce the red creatures by 10 or more for Artifacts and I know in my meta I need loads of creature and enchantment removal that exiles, not destroys if that helps.

Mycosynth Lattice+Hellkite Tyrant+Blade of Selves

Incredibly aggro for the low low price of 18 Mana.

I guess play all of the rocks?

Homelessguy I have all three of those cards as my daughter has Mycosynth Lattice in her artifact deck she is building and Blade of Selves is in the Commander Anthology!!! I will proxy those cards from the ones we have. Awesome!

I don't think there's a deck that fits your restrictions to be honest, but check out something like The Mimeoplasm.

This is a deck I made out of it Sex Toy Santa.

Maybe you can get some ideas from that. that's where I pulled that combo from.

Wurmlover you are probably right. My price point is too low to get the actions I want.
