While searching for cards I also found Rain of Gore as another reason to run red and Needlebite Trap as just a great card (no idea what to swap for it though).

I'm sure you're already aware and it just didn't make the cut but Triskaidekaphobia plus Tree of Perdition is a very funny wincon.

DarkHero correct.

It works differently depending on what "reset" button you use. A reset button is required though because tree's ability will make Mairsil's toughness higher than 4. I'll also note at this point that it can be a convenient combo to go for since Buried Alive grabs all of it but it isn't the best one to go for.

If you use AEtherling as part of it then the combo is actually more complex than it needs to be. If you use Pack Rat as part of it then it becomes more mana but simpler and easier to do. I'll show that version below step by step.

Have Tree of Perdition + Spikeshot Elder + Pack Rat caged. Have Fervor in play.

Step 1: tap Mairsil to set target player to 4 life and Mairsil's toughness to that player's life total

Step 2: pay to do 4 damage to that player

Step 3: "reset" Mairsil by paying and discarding a card

This makes a copy of mairsil. Let the original Mairsil die. Repeat steps 1 through 3 until all opponents are dead.

ShaperSavant I am by no means a competitive player but as far as "no obvious combos" for Volrath would his interaction with Tree of Perdition be good enough? Seems pretty silly to me but then again I am pretty silly myself :P

@Cepitore - Thanks for noticing, I have been adding creatures which has a lot of value but doesn't contribute with the deck/commander. I have revised the deck now as best as I can.

@Dis4Dinosaur - Tower Defense should suffice. I don't have other cards to replace with Bar the Door in the meantime. Thanks for the suggestion though.

@SyrJet - I won't put any walls in this deck, it's been hard for me to remove the defender status of walls when it's time to all out attack, unlike high toughness creatures. Thanks for the suggestion though.

@Bezter - My problem with Builder's Blessing is that when my creatures doesn't have vigilance and attacks, the effect wouldn't be fully used. I have already bought Tree of Perdition and Karn, Silver Golem is an interesting choice, but I already have a lot of CMC. Thanks for the suggestion.

@i24 - it was just because i had that planeswalker, and i might as well use it. But now i have removed it, since as much as it has a lot of value, it wouldn't fit really into the deck.

@Chaseace3 - Thanks! I found some ideas in your deck, like Behind the Scenes and Trostani, Selesnya's Voice .. Although, I ultimately didn't include trostani, since I have a bit of lifelink, and that would overkill. Also it has specific mana color to cast.

@Bluerunt - It's the same with Trostani, Selesnya's Voice , but a lot more to cast and would increase my mana curve.

Oh, also, Reanimate . Life loss and get a dude! Win-win!

Maybe Vendetta as a way to buff Greven?

Tree of Perdition to bring someone into killable range with Greven?

Okay, I'm officially out of ideas. This was all without checking EDHREC!

IMMG54 sorry I didn't see your comment earlier, for some reason I wasn't notified...

So first part of the combo is to cage Tree of Perdition , Spikeshot Elder , and a way to reset Mairsil like AEtherling .

At this point Spikeshot will read as : 4 damage to any target

Perdition will read as : set target player to 4 life

Start by Mairsil to set an opponent to 4 life then pay to do 4 damage to that player then pay to exile Mairsil until end of turn. When he returns he will be back to 4 toughness and you can do the same to the next opponent.
