PLEASE NOTE: There are a number of errors with this deck, I haven't had the time to sort it out

When talking about using a creature's ability, you can assume I mean that the creature has been imprinted with Mairsil, the Pretender.

This is a slow, stax deck. As it's hard to get a quick combo win with this deck as it takes a bit of setting up. The ideal situation is to have AEtherling imprinted ASAP, as this gives us the ability to bounce Mairsil, the Pretender each turn to imprint a new card, it also makes it much harder to kill Mairsil, the Pretender.

Having Nevinyrral's Disk imprinted is usually enough to seal the game away from your opponents as it means you've always got access to a board wipe of all your opponents non-land, non-planeswalker permanents. If you have Anger in the yard, it means you can activate it the turn he comes down. If you have AEtherling imprinted too, it means you get to keep on board in the following manner: Activate Nevinyrral's Disk ability, then holding priority, use AEtherling's bounce ability. Mairsil, the Pretender will be exiled until end of turn, then Nevinyrral's Disk will resolve, killing everything. Then EOT, Mairsil, the Pretender will come back into play.

There are two main win loops that can be done with Endling, that don't need haste, as you don't need to tap.

Use Endling to giving Undying to Mairsil, the Pretender. Use Death Cultist to sac Mairsil, the Pretender, which pings all opponents for 1, undying triggers, comes back with a +1/+1 counter, remove the +1/+1 counter with Crystalline Crawler, which gives you one mana of any colour, choose black. Use the black for Endling to giving Undying to Mairsil, the Pretender. Repeat the loop.

Use Endling to giving Undying to Mairsil, the Pretender. Use Blood Vassal to sac Mairsil, the Pretender, which gives you BB mana. Undying triggers and Mairsil, the Pretender comes back with a +1/+1 counter. Remove the counter with Walking Ballista to ping an opponent. Use some of the floating black to activate Endling's ability to give Undying to Mairsil, the Pretender. Repeat the loop. You can perform this same sort of loop, but replacing Endling with Reassembling Skeleton, where you use the BB to return Mairsil, the Pretender from the Graveyard.

If you have Anger in the yard, you can use Lotus Petal in place of Blood Vassal, as you'll be able to tap Mairsil, the Pretender as he has haste, to get the B mana for Endling's ability.

Another combo, which is more involved and requires Anger in the yard, or Mairsil, the Pretender to have been on board for a turn so we can tap to activate abilities.

Tap Gilded Lotus for UUU. Use U, to untap with Staff of Domination. Use U for Quicksilver Elemental ability. You have 1 U left in the mana pool and you can now loop again, as you can use all abilities again. Each loop will net 1 U mana. At some point you can just draw the rest of your Staff of Domination. Once you've created infinite mana and you've drawn your deck, you can dump it into Walking Ballista to be able to give counters and then remove them to ping the table.

Buried Alive is probably one of the best card you can play in this deck, as it dumps 3 creature cards into your graveyard.
