KITTYMANHunkGTI: I haven't updated this in a long time, but the central combos when I made it were Ashnod's Altar + Skullclamp + The Locust God , The Locust God + Ashnod's Altar / Goblin Bombardment + Murder of Crows , Bident of Thassa + The Locust God ... Um, there might be others, I've forgotten XD

haha, love seeing Dovescape start some bird wars. You ever thought of adding Murder of Crows?

Update: I decided that 30 lands was too low, and I've moved back to 31, inserting Inventors' Fair over Murder of Crows . The latter was a neat combo and gave marginal protection against board wipes, but was often dead in my hand (and couldn't be tutored). We'll see how this changes things, since it removed one of my potential combo lines.

Murder of Crows seems like a good cut. Yeah meta means everything anf the recall is good for stopping a lot of things.

CrimsonKing: Fair enough. Recurring Insight has always proven itself in my meta, but I’ve been considering cutting Murder of Crows for a while. Might go in that slot, or perhaps Hurkyl's Recall?

pipster258: Thanks for the comment and upvote! :D they have both been tested here, and honestly they've been...okay? They just both cost a lot of mana, conflict with my commander in that CMC slot, and tend to eat removal. I wish I could find space for the new one, but for the moment I don't know what (if anything) I'd cut. Maybe Murder of Crows, if I decide to drop that combo line of play.

Needs more artifact ramp to support those big boys. Mana Vault, Fellwar Stone, Chrome Mox, and Coalition Relic would definitely be worth including.

More card draw and card draw related stuff: Alhammarret's Archive, Gitaxian Probe, Faithless Looting, Time Reversal, Mystic Remora, Arcane Denial, Frantic Search, Jace's Archivist, and Magus of the Wheel

Mystical Tutor and Spellseeker are great tutors that don't break the bank

Murder of Crows goes infinite with any free sac outlet.

Dack's Duplicate is just great in EDH.

Also, every EDH deck needs a Strip Mine

DwaginFodder: I'm glad I could inspire you! :) you could also make the Murder of Crows/Goblin Bombardment combo work by including Hostility or Guile instead of an Eldrazi titan, if on a budget, although those cards won't do as much when hardcasted as a backup plan.

A grixis build could do work, though I'd suggest Nekusar, the Mindrazer as your commander there as a secondary win-con. I personally don't think it's worth it for only a few additional cards, but you do you (and let me know how it works out for you!).
