What Are Some Of Your Favorite Combos/Synergies?

As the title says, what are some of your favorite combos or synergies? What kind of combos have your decks produced that you had no idea even existed? Or what kind of insane combos have you seen other people pull off that were equally unexpected?
I'll give an example. A friend of mine runs a Varina, Lich Queen deck that has milling as a secondary win condition. His usual win condition is flooding the board with zombies and simply overpowering you with value. Well one game I was using my The Scorpion God deck vs his Varina, Lich Queen deck and his sons Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck. He ends up keeping an extremely greedy hand containing Altar of the Brood and Undead Alchemist . He's finally able to play those 2 cards after being mana screwed for like 10 turns straight and then proceeds to mill both of us for more than 70% of our libraries with just Undead Alchemist entering the battlefield. He ended the turn with more than 20 zombies, coming from a battlefield of literally nothing. His son and I killed him with infect the next turn because we didn't want a repeat of what just happened. But the damage he caused prevented my deck from functioning which led to my swift defeat.
In rough order of how much I like them:
I recently saw a deck based around Haunted Dead that played Prized Amalgam + other graveyard shenanigans, Fiery Temper , and Elder Deep-Fiend in Pioneer, so that was pretty cool and synergistic although not a standard two card combo.

My favorite is C.A.P.S in pioneer. One of the few reliable infinite combo decks outside of vintage and legacy.

TangoWithTojo Thanks, that combo is pretty much a staple in any deck I build with Esper colors in it.

spoonieluv1023 toss in Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur to add insult to injury. Now opponents discard their hands, stop drawing cards and can't search their library. I've actually been thinking about running that specific 3 card combo for a while. I like it a lot. I'm just not sure if my play group would enjoy that kinda deck lmao. Its stax on steroids

TangoWithTojo That's not a bad idea. Not crazy about the mana cost, but there's always ways around that. Thanks.
