Fenryr What you need is just one creature to sacrifice and the chain will start. You get from Ashnod's Altar , Words of Wilding and Korvold will trigger instead of drawing you choose to use from The Altar to pay the and you'll get the bear token which can be sacrificed and used to restart the chain.

Worst case would really be to have any kind of permanent to sacrfice and open to pay for the first activation. Afterwards it will be self-sustaining.

I think it's a pretty powerful combo. We get infinite ETBs and LTBs as well as infinite colorless mana. Pair it with Mayhem Devil and we have our win.

Have you ever thought of Words of Wilding ? Combos pretty nicely with Ashnod's Altar and Korvold . I used it in my list.

odd cards you might want to consider - Spellstutter Sprite & Ashnod's Altar - ashnod's altar lets you sac tokens for more exile, spellstutter gives countermagic with legs.

BMHKain on Atla Palani wants to be ...

Guys. Relax please; I already made my decision: It's unfortunate the Mirror Entity , +1/+1, & Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre combo is going to be something nearly on level to be a Turn 2 or later something I never planned (Sorry, Caerwyn.). Though the Thornbite Staff & Ashnod's Altar cards, among any similar that could do good still. Though Ad Infinitum is too much. That said, I've other things for now; any ideas for my direction? Oh, & I'm planning to update my Superfriends Deck, but I want to find some new cards for the deck nobody thought of. That, & I plan to change Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder to a 5 Color Chaos Commander; but who?

Finally, I wonder how to conform my manabase for each deck of mine; the Lands seem off-sync.

I apologize for all this. Thanks for the help; now how to make it? After all this, I wonder who should run my last CMDR Deck? I was thinking of someone from Throne of Eldraine, but who?

Value cards like Ashnod's Altar Necropotence and Phyrexian Altar seem pretty good in the deck. Also, Cloudstone Curio with cheap artifacts can go infinite rather easily. Being that you arent in green, but make a fair amount of small tokens, Black Market seems like a good accelerant.

Things to remove and why:

Worry Beads - too slow Endless ranks of the dead- dead if you don't have other zombies out

From Under the Floorboards - no way to activate madness which is what makes it good

Unbreathing Horde - you can keep if you want, but it only helps if you self mill and you just don't have that many creatures

Ashnod's Altar - you don't consistently have enough creatures to feed it, instead use a land slot or something and get a Phyrexian Tower

Dark Salvation - keep it only if you can fix your mana generation issues. If you can consistently get 10+ mana a game then keep it.

Exsanguinate - it's just a worse Torment of hailfire, and again you don't generate 20+ mana consistently.

Butcher of Malakir - Costs too much mana, and when you need to wipe the board you have boardwipes to do that anyways.

Things to add:

Codex Shredder

Unwinding Clock

Embalmer's Tools

Altar of Dementia swap that one out for Ashnod's, it's better in this deck

Grindclock , it's slow but it gets a lot better with Unwinding clock, and if you can land it early it'll do some serious work over the course of a game.

Helm of Obedience is a pricey card but definitely would do work here

Millstone if you took that one out

Phyrexian Arena // Necropotence to keep your hand full
