Require Subservience.

Destroy them:

(1) Brago + resonator / engine + mana rock(s) + chalice / exarch

(2) Brago + resonator / engine + mana rock(s) + any card draw + oracle

*Example Brago + resonator combo:

Brago + resonator / engine + mana rock(s) + chalice / exarch:

1) On the first main phase have Brago, untapped resonator / engine, untapped mana rock(s) that tap for at least 2, and chalice (chalice can be one of said mana rocks) / exarch in play

2) Move to the combat step and declare Brago as an attacker. When he deals combat damage to a player, his flicker triggered ability triggers and goes on the stack. (Note that he must deal combat damage for the combo to work.)

3) With the flicker ability on the stack , tap mana rocks for 2 mana to pay for and activate resonator / engine, targeting Brago’s flicker ability on the stack. Resonator / engine places a copy copy of the triggered ability on the stack. (Note that because of stack mechanics, specifically “first in, last out,” this copy will ultimately resolve first.)

4) When Brago’s copied blink trigger resolves, exile and return to play untapped mana rock(s) that tap for at least 2, and chalice / exarch. When chalice / exarch return to play, their ETB triggers go on the stack.

5) In response, tap mana rocks for 2 mana to pay for and activate resonator / engine, targeting Brago’s flicker ability, still on the stack.

6) When the copy resolves, go back to (4).

As you can see, this combination loop allows us to put an arbitrarily large number of ETB triggers on the stack. When chalice / exarch’s ETB triggers fully resolve, your opponents lose all of their life and you gain life equal to their combined life totals.

Cripple them:

(1) Brago + resonator / engine + mana rock(s) + o-ring / cutpurse

Starve them:

(1) Brago + mana rock (colored) + stasis + kismet / frozen aether

(*) The deck includes ample tutors for and recursion of stasis

They will not forget..
