Karn Liberated enters with 12 loyalty. If he can survive one turn, you reset the game.

That could be a fun haymaker

Mastermind's Acquisition Is a great card to combo with Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed. You can make a 15 card board and put some cards in to help against certain decks that gives chainer some issues (blue white control--Nevi's Disc, Hero's Downfall and the like, Sword of Sinew and Steel, etc.) it allows you to run 15 extra cards without having them eat up space in your deck.

Attrition and Overseer of the Damned is a fun combo. I have gotten tons of use out of attrition.

The Rings + Basalt combo is nice, but I ended up dropping it out of mine. It is nice if you play Torment of Hailfire and Exsanguinate but I went more control than combo after a while.

Thought-Knot Seer is great for some recurring hand hate

Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools has been an all-star in my deck, you could also add Karn Liberated and Ugin, the Ineffable for more pointed permanent destruction

Flesh-Eater Imp is also a fun sac outlet and an alternative win con.

Volrath's Stronghold is good for saving some of your cards from graveyard removal and I have been debating Phyrexian Reclamation and or Tortured Existence. Fortunately I have not seen too many EDH decks with a lot of dedicated grave hate.

Disciple of Bolas is also an all star card, he keeps chainer going like you wouldn't believe

Hello fellow superfriend. I like your deck but I have to question some card choices and come with some suggestions. First of how do you make your Valakut trigger? You dont have nerly enough mountains... Second why did you choose ulamog, the ceasless hunger over some other titan like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth? Third and last why do you play Karn Liberated and Ashiok, Nightmare Muse? I personaly think Karn is to slow and I cant really think of a reason to play Ashiok, Nightmare Muse.

You already have Oath of Teferi and Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God add Aminatou, the Fateshifter for a three card combo to win. She is also very strong on her own in a SF deck. Faith's Reward could be considered aswell. Uping the lands to 38 or add more manarocks could also be a good thing here.

I hope I dont sound rude, I just want to help and share my view. +1 from me.

I have found Fae of Wishes to be incredibly powerful in Historic and I was hoping the community would be willing to offer suggestions for noncreature Modern cards that they would put in to the sideboard of a monoblue deck running a playset of them; I know Cyclonic Rift, Karn Liberated, and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon are generally good. I'm not up to date on the current meta so I am looking for answers to top tier decks, but deck-specific suggestions are also welcome: Gloomerang

This wasn’t MTG, but when I was in second grade, I was on the playground. I found a yugioh card, in mtg terms it was a Karn Liberated. As I’m looking at it, a 5th grader walks up behind me. He forced me to trade it to him for what was basically a 1 mana 0/1 vanilla flier (once again, this is the magic equivalent of the yugioh card).

Have you thought about Karn Liberated? I think it would really help the deck out.

RNR_Gaming: Thanks for the feedback. I think Karn Liberated is an overreach in this deck and does not fit very well. Thought-Knot Seer I will avoid because it is not a creature I can recur, and getting 1 card out of 99 just isn't all that strong, particularly when it's in the hand and not from the library. Chaos Warp I refuse to play on general principle at this point as I just can't stand the card. I may change that later on due to this deck and would be willing to try it, but my results with it have always been lackluster. I do like Abrade and Possibility Storm conceptually so those may be worth taking looks at.

Karn Liberated probably fits in here fairly well. Though it's not an artifact Thought-Knot Seer can be incredibly useful against control players. Lastly, Abrade, Chaos Warp, and Possibility Storm can give you some good interaction.
