I Think the smallest line to go infinite I saw was the general Island, Lotus Petal, Flash, Protean Hulk version.

Great job on going 4/0. anyway, i would like to second the Gilded Goose + Neoform into Incubation Druid . DimensionalCheesecake you are a genius! The Paradise Druid is good for the hexproof but you don't need that every game. Having 6 mana open to you on turn 3 is pretty busted. It opens you up to any of your planewalkers turn 3. 2 of your 3cmc ones. Voracious Hydra would hit the board as an 8/9. you could have Gargos, Vicious Watcher out on turn 3. Your deck would be a fun hydra deck that makes people scoop by turn 4. I would look at removing Growth Spiral for the Neoform i think however, growth spiral you can always use. Neoform would be reserved strictly for getting incubation druid with a counter on it. You could sideboard it for when you play against more aggressive decks that have less removal.

Following these changes I proceeded to 4\0 at my local FNM without dropping a game.
This may be because of the favorable match ups of just sheer luck but it had some success either way.
I really appreciate all the assistance with the building and modifying of this deck into something fun and powerful.

Wizkalifa Forgotten Ancient is a great card! I probably won't put it in this deck because I'm purely tunnel-visioning in on the infinite combos, but it would probably make the deck a lot better by giving some alternate ways to win!
Krazydude123 Hmm, haste trample from Shifting Ceratops is very tempting (similarly for Zegana, Utopian Speaker ), however usually I like my haste/unblockable enablers to have some way to protect Kraj as well. For example, Thornling can also give itself indestructible and Morphling can give itself shroud.
Gyre Engineer and Incubation Druid would be AMAZING in the deck though! I think in paper I actually have a gyre engineer in the deck, and I did NOT realize that Incubation Druid gave mana of any colour! That's amazing since it's so hard to find mana dorks that make blue. Definitely putting both of those in, thanks!
Thank you both for the suggestions!

My list certainly isn't cEDH but thought I'd through in some of my favourites as food for thought.

Obviously, buying singles is the best way to get what you want. However if you are buying a box to start your collection, here is what I suggest.
My buddies and I have gotten some pretty good pulls from Iconic Masters, which I think is around $188 on TCGPlayer right now. It has some pretty good staples like Mana Drain , Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and Consecrated Sphinx . As well as good uncommons and commons like Swords to Plowshares and Mind Stone .
If you're trying to keep it under $100, I've really liked all the Ravnica sets. All of these include the shock lands, which are always good to have. Guilds has stuff like Assassin's Trophy , Chromatic Lantern and Divine Visitation . Allegiance has Smothering Tithe and Incubation Druid . Return to Ravnica has Cyclonic Rift and Chromatic Lantern .
I would look at the different sets and see what cards interest you. Just remember that buying a box is a gamble, and you will very likely not get back the amount you put in.

Ares111123 well not necessarily. If you get 4 colors between permanents, then Faeburrow Elder and Gauntlets of Light is infinite on its own. Giving him haste allows you to perform the combo on the same turn that you play him as well, therefore not needing Biomancer's Familiar or Leyline of Abundance at all.
One copy of Biomancer's Familiar or Leyline of Abundance are only needed in addition to the Incubation Druid and Gauntlets of Light combo. This should also be looked at as your secondary combo method, as it takes 3 cards to enable. I understand you need all four colors on the field for the first, however that will be easier to achieve as you plan to play your planeswalkers early anyways.
Obviously this is your deck, so go the route that you wish, but in my opinion I feel that focusing on the easier to protect combo is going to be more reliable than possibly hitting it on turn 4 in a few games. One kill spell or board wipe will completely set you back. Have you considered Tamiyo, Collector of Tales to help dig for / recur your combo pieces?
