Wow, great work MagicalHacker. Reformatted with card links and averages (rounded up) of the range of decks the combos are in. I figure a single number for each 2 card combo makes it easker to tally up and figure percentages later. So 120,411 two-card combos total.

Just curious if there's a reason you have two white cards in your monoblue deck Rest in Peace and Land Tax? Are they meant to be placeholders until you find something to fill their role in blue or what? Also Training Grounds doesn't combo with Basalt Monolith. I'd also recommend Propaganda instead of Ensnaring Bridge. Since you seem to be a counterspell heavy deck with a decent amount of card draw, I don't think Ensnaring Bridge will do much unless you're afraid of very large creatures.

I would say that Green is a lot too slow for this sort of thing. This is Modern -- your 3 drop should be winning the game. Maybe a slight exaggeration, but you should remember that.
Here's a quick decklist:
Prototype Decklist Show
- Will be your best threat with cost reducers. or for a 3/3 is not bad.
- Prioritize exiling this with FoNe.
- Your best creature when you haven't gotten an engine or cost reducer set up.
- Protect your Engines
- Extra Mulligans, and you get to start with extra cards in hand. Activate it every time, because a hand with it in it is effectively one card less.
- Randomly beat Dredge, also helps you when setting up your engine.
- Just a better Relic.
- Target your own creatures, you get ramp. Also a good removal spell.
- Works with the theme of exiling, and helps you power out your engines.
- Note that if you cast the Imprinted Squee or Scourge, it won't be usable anymore. However, it's a lot better than other things and you have the ability to get your creature back.
- Mill everybody.
That list needs some trimming, but it should function. Please note that you CAN NOT use a fetch-shock manabase, at least not a traditional one. You could exile your one copy of Hallowed Fountain with Serum Visions, and then if you need white and all you have is a Scalding Tarn.... you're screwed. You'll probably want a Fastland heavy manabase -- Spirebluff Canal, Seachrome Coast, Inspiring Vantage. Additionally, you might even consider Arcum's Astrolabe, but that's preference.

Where are you getting your statistics from? What are the most prominent combos you are looking to stop? In my experience, a card like Rest in Peace will stop a large percentage of combos, but without a list of the most common combos it's difficult to have any meaningful discussion.

Been thinking about this sort of strategy for a while. Here's what I've come up with:
First, Eternal Scourge. You'll want 12 copies of "cast from exile" creatures.
Second, Serum Powder. You effectively get Companion pre-nerf, but the creatures are slightly worse with the upside the you might start with 9, 10 or even 11 cards in hand. Might be worth mulliganing once or twice to try and get in some matchups.
Third, early game engines are key. While you probably could use Serum Visions, I really recommend that you use Relic of Progenitus and Pyxis of Pandemonium as turn one plays. Relic is good to control other people's GY, and Pyxis will effectively draw you a card every few turns.
Fourth, consider creature cost reduction effects. Marauding Raptor, is probably the best here, but any way to shave a mana or two off the cost is great. This is because your engine is likely based on having effectively immortal creatures while screwing with your opponent using GY hate and exile-based removal.
Fifth, you should be slpashing white. Your deck should be , because Rest in Peace, Path to Exile are great here. You might consider Perilous Vault as a sort of stored wrath effect. Declaration in Stone is actually solid here, as you can exile a couple of your Scourges and get Clues, effectively being a weird 2 mana Paradoxical Outcome. Of course, don't run too many mediocre removal spells. It doesn't help.
Other random tech that might be interesting:
Induced Amnesia, while only good when you have a lot of your creatures in hand, can act as a weird Divination.
Detention Sphere is fun with Pyxis. If you ever plan on cracking Pyxis for value, you should have Spheres. Of course, you probably don't want to crack Pyxis anyways because your opponent will get all the real value.
Some processor effects, like Processor Assault might be valuable here Especially if you have RIP out.
All in all, it's a weird gimmick that has the ability to randomly beat Dredge while generating value in the form of 'you never gonna get rid of my creatures'. If you get enough cost reduction, you can be playing all of your creatures for only , , or or in the case of Scourge. Remember the cost reduction.
Also, Simian Spirit Guide for the theme. And it also helps you power out some of your cost reductions and engine pieces, so it's good. And yes, FoNe is best here. FoRa? Meh, it's like a bad removal spell, which is okay, but not the greatest.

3.) The Gitrog Monster has a lot of casual variations, but it gets busted in competitive EDH if you plan to go infinite with Dakmor Salvage and any of the various free repeatable discard outlets such as: Earsplitting Rats, Grotesque Hybrid, Noose Constrictor, Oblivion Crown, Olivia's Dragoon, Oona's Prowler, Patchwork Gnomes, Putrid Imp, Skirge Familiar, Trespasser il-Vec, Tunneler Wurm or Wild Mongrel.
Upon discarding the Dakmor Salvage, The Gitrog Monster allows you to draw a card which you can use to dredge the Dakmor Salvage back. As you can see you have an infinite mill loop, BUT for every land you mill, you also get a draw trigger from The Gitrog Monster. Not only that, but in your deck you have one or more of these grave-shuffle effects: Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre or Gaea's Blessing. Milling any of those cards puts all milled cards back into your library, so you can keep racking up draw triggers until you have your entire deck in your hand.
At this point you can free cast Lotus Petal and/or Dark Ritual and then shuffle them back into your library to draw again by discarding a grave shuffler followed by any number of lands in your hand to draw them back and repeat. You now have infinite mana of any color in your hand along with every card in your library in your hand and the ability to recast any card in your hand as many times as you want. Simplest method of winning is just to cast Walking Ballista for a million mana but really any card that causes a loss of life that can easily be put back in the grave upon use so you can cycle it back will work. Also if your opponents have something like Leyline of Sanctity or any other protection card you can freely cast and recast your Assassin's Trophy and/or Maelstrom Pulse as many times as you want to bypass the issue.
But what if they exile your Dakmor Salvage? Use Riftsweeper to get it back and if that fails use your back-up Mirror of Fate to recur it after you've milled your library thoroughly with some value engine like Mesmeric Orb. You basically have to also exile their recursion cards to remove the land for good or use Praetor's Grasp as a silver bullet.
Why not just use a removal spell or graveyard hate spell/ability while the first dredge trigger is on the stack to interrupt the combo? Well, that could work, but keep in mind if they discard a another land card while its on the stack they can dredge off of that and run through their combo all while removal is on the stack effectively bypassing any number of removal spells equal to the extra lands in their hand. By the time the removal spell as has resolved they will have infinite black mana from Dark Ritual and a Lotus Petal to cast afterward allowing them to just recast whatever was removed or just win by hard-casting the aforementioned Walking Ballista.
If Tormod's Crypt won't work you could use Rest in Peace or Planar Void to stop it, but these decks run so many Naturalize effects because they know that's the only real effective answer you have to stop it.
Oh, and get this. If you can't find a discard outlet you can use your discard step to discard down to hand size to go infinite and win the game that way as the discard step repeats if an ability is triggered due to discarding down to hand size. Which means all you really need is the land which you can find with all the black tutors and green provides its own land tutor effects as well. Given you're also in green playing a turn 2 or 3 The Gitrog Monster is fairly possible which can be the same turn you win on.
The deck is too consistent at winning. People don't play it though, because certain interactions get very complex in rules interactions which means you need a solid understanding of how to pilot it, and those who do know how to pilot it find it boring as winning can be so fast and consistent it doesn't even feel like you're playing Magic anymore. Also the deck can get pretty pricey to acquire all the cards you need. That combination of factors is why it doesn't see much play otherwise it would be banned straight out of existence if sanctioned competitive EDH tournaments were more common in my opinion.

Go for the Temur ones, they use Past in Flames and Sylvan Scrying, but temur has a great manabase, with one triome, and a really good sideboard tech of Nature's Claim for Damping Sphere/Rest in Peace as well as Veil of Summer to protect your combo turns!
the above list is just the first result, test things out as you please!
