Creature (1)

There are a ton of lines both explosive and value based in this primer I'll be going over the main combo lines and briefly going over the less explosive non-combo lines. I'll be updating the primer when I have time; see if you can find all the combos :)
Aluren allows all players to play creatures with cmc 3 or less for free without paying their mana cost. Additionally, you can play the creatures as though they have flash.

Infinite Life

Have the following on the battlefield

Aluren + Cloudstone Curio

Have these cards in your hand

Kitchen Finks + Shrieking Drake

Side note: Kor Skyfisher can replace Shrieking Drake

1) play Kitchen Finks gain 2 life

2) play Shrieking Drake ; Cloudstone Curio triggers, return kitchen finx

3) Shrieking Drake returns itself

4) rinse and repeat for infinate life

1) Have Intruder Alarm on the battlefield.

2) have either Chulane, Teller of Tales and be able to activate her ability; or have Cloudstone Curio .

3) with set up, if you have mana dorks able to produce 5 mana and 1 one drop creature you'll be able to net infinite mana.

Side note: if you have Training Grounds or Biomancer's Familiar you need 3 mama instead of 5.

How it should play once everything is set up

Without a Training Grounds

1) activate Chulane, Teller of Tales , returning the spare one drop. This takes us from 5 mana to 2 mana.

2) replay the 1 drop. 2 mana to 1 mana; untap our mana dorks. Draw a card from Chulane, Teller of Tales 's ability and play a land if we drew one. We now have 1 mana left in our pool and our dorks are all untapped from Intruder Alarm

3) Rinse and repeat for infinate mana and card draw.

Primary cards needed

1) Umbral Mantle

2) Staff of Domination

3) Priest of Titania

4) Trophy Mage

5) Village Bell-Ringer

6) Great Oak Guardian

The Combos

1) Priest of Titania with 4 elves on the battlefield and Umbral Mantle is infinate green mana

2) Priest of Titania with 4 elves on the battlefield and Staff of Domination is infinate mana and infinate card draw

Side note: Trophy Mage tutors for both Staff of Domination and Umbral Mantle . Additionally, it can grab Cloudstone Curio and Thousand-Year Elixir for other combo lines too

3) Chulane, Teller of Tales + Village Bell-Ringer + enough dorks to generate 7 mana or 5 mana if you have Training Grounds or Biomancer's Familiar generates infinite mana and infinate untaps; the same can be done with Great Oak Guardian but it requires the ability to make 10 mana; this also pumps your board.
