The card I'm most excited for is actually Quandrix Command . It's a much more useful (in most scenarios) version of Memory's Journey (which forms a recursion loop with Noxious Revival ) and has a good amount of synergy with the rest of the deck (acts as temporary removal/counterspell and I run Incubation Druid ).

Mtg_Mega_Nerds Best way I can think of going infinite with Golgari land boi is having Aetherflux Reservoir , Disciple of Griselbrand , and Corpse Dance . The lowest life total you could start the combo at is 26 and still go infinite.

So the Witherbloom precon was so-so, IMO:
Gyome, Master Chef: I never voiced it but I predicted that the chef would be Witherbloom when I read Cram Session 's flavor text, woo. (Although I only just got the pun on that card, ironically.) Anyway, EDH tries to get caught up with the ELD Food theme, but the support is still kinda lackluster; mostly the card advantage from Savvy Hunter and Trail of Crumbs . (Can the fact that Foods are artifacts be abused in golgari?) But hey, an extra excuse for Cauldron Familiar loops in our format for the purpose of triggering people's PTSD.
Tivash, Gloom Summoner: Meh. I'm all for more Demonic presence but this seems pretty boring. Kinda like a token-producing Aetherflux Reservoir . (Also, he kinda looks like Urza, or the Raven Man.)
Yedora, Grave Gardener: Well, this is kind of an odd one. Seems more at home in the 99 than at the helm? Turns Kadena into an extra copy of Grim Haruspex . Not sure if there's a good way of abusing it. Turn random manifested cards into lands? Resurrect people with Worldgorger Dragon ?
Blossoming Bogbeast: Obvious Pathbreaker Ibex comparison; MV 1 cheaper
Marshland Bloodcaster: Fancy, but watch that MV. Ironically perhaps, itself benefits greatly from being cheated out.
Revival Experiment: One of the few sources of noncreature reanimation in these colors
Ezzaroot Channeler: Pretty much green Marshland Bloodcaster.
DemonDragonJ: Maybe the wanted to avoid having the infinitive combo with Dina, Soul Steeper from its sister set? WotC does seems to dislike EB tho, seeing as SB already got not one but two creature equivalents in Defiant Bloodlord and Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose while EB got none.

Hey! So there are actually various ways that this deck can win, and a lot of them don't require a whole lot of setup, just good tutoring and keeping the right cards. All 4 of the combos (Angel's Draw, Bomberman, Dramatic Scepter, and Thassa's Consultation), are win conditions. With Angel's Draw, you cast Angel's Grace first and just draw whatever you want with Ad Nauseam . Bomberman is an infinite mana combo because Auriok Salvagers lets you return Lion's Eye Diamond . Dramatic Scepter is also infinite mana as long as you have 3 mana in the form of mana rocks and mana dorks, you simply exile Dramatic Reversal with Isochron Scepter . Thassa's Consultation is (arguably) the easiest way to win the game, cause it only costs 3 mana and it's pretty hard to stop unless they have counterspells. Simply play Demonic Consultation and name a card that isn't in your deck, you'll exile your entire deck, and then play Thassa's Oracle and you win the game. Of course usually with infinite mana you'll just be drawing your entire deck out with Thrasios, Triton Hero and you'll usually be putting that infinite mana towards Walking Ballista .
Usually if you're wanting to win you'll be looking for 1-2 tutors in your hand, and a piece of a combo, that way you know how you're gonna do it. Aetherflux Reservoir isn't so much a win condition as it is a great way to bypass decks that eat at your life total, because you also tend to hurt yourself a lot. It just gives you some insurance so when you do finally cast that something big, if it gets stopped you at least have a backup.
As for ways to get to the combos, you'll be looking at any tutor of course, and Birthing Pod is an excellent choice for getting out a creature that you really don't wanna be countered. Usually before you win the game you'll want some form of insurance out on the battlefield, so if you have a win con in hand, the pod, and a one drop mana dork, I recommend using pod to get Grand Abolisher out, cause then they can't stop you from winning the game.
Finally, if you're in a situation where ballista isn't gonna win you the game and next turn you'll lose, or if you simply don't have a way to get oracle out or win by damage, there are ways to simply take over the game with things like Memory's Journey , Noxious Revival , and Windfall , or Timetwister . This is simply a combo that if you have infinite mana and Thrasios out, you'll be able to have infinite of every card in the deck, cause you get to shuffle your graveyard over and over again, and don't forget that if they destroy your infinite mana source at some point you can use Hullbreacher to generate some treasure tokens with this. All you have to do is use either Windfall or Timetwister, shuffle everything basically, draw your cards, use Noxious Revival to put it back on top of your library, draw it, use it again, then Memory's Journey to put Noxious and your card of choice back into the deck.
If you have any other questions, just let me know!

I'm a dumb smoothbrain. Could you explain to me how this deck wins? I see Aetherflux Reservoir and Walking Ballista , but these each require massive amounts of setup to pull off. Is there another way this deck wins?
