My attempt at Ghave aristocrats. I've been playing around with Aristocrats outside of my Teysa Deck, looking to spice things up a bit, adding colors, changing up the sub-themes.

We win by infinitely combo-ing our opponents to death, or generally out-valuing them.

The combos relying specifically on our commander is Ghave+Geralf's Messenger or Young Wolf+Ashnod's Altar or Phyrexian Altar. Sacrifice the Messenger to Ashnod's Altar or Phyrexian Altar. The Messenger or Wolf comes back with a counter. Use one mana to remove the counter to create a Saproling, and then sacrifice to Ashnod's. Infinitely drain people to death with Messenger, create infinite colorless mana with Ashnods, or create a huge army of Saprolings.

Reveillark+Karmic Guide targeting each other allows infinite death triggers from Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat, infinite mana from card:Phyrexian Altar or Ashnod's Altar, or infinite milling from Altar of Dementia. A similar combo can be performed with Saffi Eriksdotter, sacrificing her to get back Karmic Guide, which gets her back. Sacrifice Karmic Guide with a sac outlet, then activate Saffi again. Rinse and repeat.

Yawgmoth, Thran Physician+ Young Wolf and Messenger= the ability to draw as many cards as we have life by sacking one Undying creature placing the -1/-1 counter on the second, removing the +1/+1 counter from it, and then activating Yawgmoth again and sacking the counterless creature to do it to the other. This can also trigger Aura Shards as often as needed, making it impossible to keep artifacts or enchantments in play. We can ping people to death much due Geralf's Messenger as well. Add in a Blood Artist style effect and we can do either combo practically infinitely.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed+Walking Ballista can infinitely ping people to death. Mikaeus or Cathars' Crusade+Kitchen Finks+Sac outlet gives us infinite life. Replace Kitchen Finks with Woodfall Primus and we can destroy all non-creature permanents.

The deck can also lay low, creating counters and tokens to slowly overwhelm opponents, but I find the infinite combos much more fun.
