1empyrean, It depends on your build, but it sounds like you are aiming to use Alena, Kessig Trapper as much as possible. You have quite a few 4+ power creatures in the deck, so it doesn't seem out of the realm of possibility to at 7 or likely more to use with Doubling Cube. Just my 2 cents; you'll definitely know better how that plays out in the deck.

As far as what to remove, how often is Elixir of Immortality's shuffle back in really helping your strategy? Maybe I am just not seeing it, but I'm wondering how often it's a whiff.

The infinite combos in this deck mostly have to do with untapping Alena, Kessig Trapper after playing a creature or making a token. This gives me infinite red mana (assuming the creature's power is high enough, but that's what the auras and equipment help with), and depending on what I am using to achieve this, other things as well. The most potent is Staff of Domination, which lets me draw my deck.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker is in the deck to make a creature token more than as a central combo piece, and that's why I'm not running the expected combos. Kiki/Bellringer also gives me infinite red mana with Alena.

Should I list the things that untap Alena?

This is a weird boros combo deck built around Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist and Alena, Kessig Trapper. I mostly built it to see if it would work and if I liked how it played. Let me know what you think and if its worth keeping around.

Oh and I dunno if it can be abused but AFAIK you're allowed to pump creatures that ETB'd on the current turn before you tap Alena, Kessig Trapper for mana. Ogre Battledriver?

I’ll take a look 1empyrean

I’ve been away from the MTG scene for a while, I’m having a bit of a break from it but when I saw the spoiled Alena, Kessig Trapper I couldn’t resist putting my brewing cap on.

Pump out some crazy mana with Alena to cast Eldrazi monsters or go infinite with Thrasios to find everything you need.
