Ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora ora

Anyway, might I recommend Ashnod's Altar, Attrition, and Etchings of the Chosen? Ancestor's Prophet and Whipgrass Entangler may be cool tribal cards, as well.

Brallin, Skyshark Rider  Flip if you go full discard, right now half your cards put your hand on the bottom of your deck.

Do you get much use out of Ashnod's Altar? I don't see a real mana sink for all that colorless mana except Folio of Fancies. If you want more big mana then Mana Echoes just dropped in price.

Another combo I came up with that uses Mortuary is Deathrender + something that draws cards from a creature dying. Like Harvester of Souls a sac outlet of your choice like Ashnod's Altar + Mortuary. Making an infinite loop where you draw the creature you sacrificed and putting it back into play with Deathrender. You can kill the table with some really good enters the battlefield effects like Gray Merchant of Asphodel.

You could add 4 different infinite combos here that win you the game on the spot by abusing atlas ability. All you need is either Purphoros, God of the Forge or Burning Sun's Avatar in the deck, an eldrazi Titan to reshuffle your grave and these combos.

  • Thornbite Staff + Ashnod's Altar lets you produce infinite eggs and put all your creatures on the table. Cycling an eldrazi titan over and over kills with purphoros triggers.

  • Runed Stalactite + Ashnod's Altar lets you cycle through your deck until you find the desired creature or killed everyone with purphoros triggers.

  • Runed Stalactite + Mirror Entity also kills the table with purphoros triggers when you activate entity for 0 just often enough by holding priority.

  • Mirror Entity + Ashnod's Altar lets you cycle again through your deck similar to stalactite and altar combo while also producing infinite colorless mana that can be used to make all your creatures huge with entity.

I opted for Ashnod's Altar over Spawning Pit

I feel like Blowfly Infestation could have a subtle but powerful impact in this deck. Maybe some more direct sac outlets like, Ashnod's Altar, Spawning Pit, or Carrion Feeder.
