Hey, impressive version on a budget, you've put a lot of thought into your deck.

An excellent compact infinite combo for life is Staff of Domination + Accomplished Alchemist by gaining five or more life on a turn. What makes this combo compact is it's two cards and Staff can draw which is helpful when you make infinite mana to draw your wincon in this case Aetherflux Reservoir. Staff can be a mana sink for any other infinite mana combos you play. Heronblade Elite is an overlooked mana dork who can get out of hand quick when playing counters as well as other Humans. With 5 or more power it also infinite combos with Staff of Domination.


To improve gameplay use cards that are part of combos, but are good without combos? Cards that do other things such as ramp or gain life and can be used in more than one combo. Try to limit the combos to two cards to make it easier to assemble.

Staff of Domination, Accomplished Alchemist, Ivy Lane Denizen, Spike Feeder, Cleric Class, Heronblade Elite, Scurry Oak are combo cards that are also good outside of combos. In contrast Sorcerer's Wand, Lurking Roper, Famished Paladin, Krosan Restorer, Presence of Gond are subpar cards that are only here because of combos or are only part of one combo. I'm not suggesting to cut all these cards, just to think about what other uses do they have here besides a combo and are they really needed because of that?

For example, Illusionist's Bracers is an expensive price card here that's only in one combo with one card, Krosan Restorer. Consider cutting Bracers and Restorer? Doing this change would also let you cut some of the lesser Bounce lands, Karoo and Jungle Basin because only playing them for Restorer combo. For a budget manabase Canopy Vista and Fortified Village could replace those lands. By adding Canopy Vista then you have a Selesnya dual land that Three Visits can get.

Many of the combos here require an equipment or an aura, Open the Armory can tutor for either one.


Some changes to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

Shattered Angel so you gain life off turn. Survival Cache, Paradise Plume

A fun combo I put in my life gain deck is Lurking Roper or Famished Paladin with Presence of Gond. All the ETB life gain cards make this infinite elves, infinite life

Hey smack80

Thanks again for suggestions :)

I see that you have included another infinite combo. Unfortunately, my playgroup doesn't allow those. But I bet they would have been great otherwise, as they both use only two cards and are $ cheap.

Presence of Gond could be used to create blockers, but I dont think it is efficient enough. And it is not an effect I think would fit very well with the theme either. This is primarily a voltron deck, so I would want all the auras on the same creature, not spread around.

Another good finisher for the deck could be Midnight Guard plus Presence of Gond. Both are on budget and neither are terrible. Gond is good on any enchantress to make blockers.

Presence of Gond, Paradise Mantle, a Vehicle or Predatory Urge would let you tap at will

One of your links went to a deck instead of a card.

Presence of Gond

Nothing happens if you are instructed to transform a card that isn't a DFC. So activating Shrill Howler  Flip from an Experiment Kraj will not do anything.

701.28c If a spell or ability instructs a player to transform a permanent that isn’t represented by a transforming double-faced card, nothing happens.

Presence of Gond grants an activated ability to the enchanted creature. Experiment Kraj has the activated abilities of creatures with +1/+1 counters on them. If a creature is enchanted with Presence of Gond and has a +1/+1 counter on it, Experiment Kraj will also have the ability to tap for an elf.

If you are going with elf token theme, Presence of Gond might synergize well. You may also want to look at combos that utilize Devoted Druid (if you attache gond to devoted, there are a few ways to get infi elf token using ETB effects, like Ivy Lane Denizen or Coat of Arms.

Many elf decks can benefit from Skyshroud Poacher

Here are a few more cards that can synergize with an elf token /black deck. Eyeblight Massacre, Gilt-Leaf Palace, Harald Unites the Elves, Prowess of the Fair, Serpent's Soul-Jar, Tyvar Kell

I would get rid of Canopy Tactician it doesn't give that much mana at 3 CMC.

Seedborn Muse is not doing much in your deck, since you don't have a lot of tapping. Bloom Tender can help with color fixing.

Nature's Lore is better than Rampant Growth.

Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip is slower Gaea's Cradle and also let you scry 4 and get a creature.

You may want to look at modal lands Turntimber Symbiosis  Flip, Agadeem's Awakening  Flip to name 2.

You might be able to eak 1% bu adding the other fetch lands, at the very least add Prismatic Vista
