Thank you for taking the time to look at my deck. I am currently using it to track the state I want to get the deck in to so the Sideboard is being used for cards I want for the deck, but have not yet purchased.

The basis of the deck is to establish an engine that repeatedly gives 3 counters and 3 mana so that we can get all of our 3 or less CMC permanents onto the battlefield. After we do that we use one of the combos to create infinite mana, tokens, or death triggers. We then use one of those three things to win with.

The engines are used for Tayam, Luminous Enigma activations, as such many of them use the vigilance counters he provides. Many of the engines also use Ashnod's Altar or Phyrexian Altar these are used to completely power the ability. You can use another sac outlet to make a "counters only" version of the engine when digging for other pieces.

Tayam, Luminous Enigma , Ashnod's Altar , and Caller of the Claw : Requires 4 of your creatures to have died this turn, or 3 additional mana and 2 of your creatures to have died this turn to start. Caller of the Claw enters with a vigilance counter and creates 2/2 bear tokens equal to the number of creatures that have entered your graveyard this turn that each enter with a vigilance counter. Sacrifice creatures until you have 3+ mana. Activate Tayam, Luminous Enigma removing counters from among the tokens and Caller, if you do not have at least three counters left among your creatures and Caller was not one of the creatures you sacrificed for mana, sacrifice it in response to Tayam. If Caller is in the graveyard return it with the Tayam activation, otherwise return one of your other permanents CMC 3 or less.

Tayam, Luminous Enigma , Phyrexian Altar , and Caller of the Claw : Requires 5 of your creatures to have died this turn, or 3 additional mana and 2 of your creatures to have died this turn to start. Caller of the Claw enters with a vigilance counter and creates 2/2 bear tokens equal to the number of creatures that have entered your graveyard this turn that each enter with a vigilance counter. Sacrifice creatures until you have 3+ mana. Activate Tayam, Luminous Enigma removing counters from among the tokens and Caller, if you do not have at least three counters left among your creatures and Caller was not one of the creatures you sacrificed for mana, sacrifice it in response to Tayam. If Caller is in the graveyard return it with the Tayam activation, otherwise return one of your other permanents CMC 3 or less.

Tayam, Luminous Enigma , Ashnod's Altar , and Hallowed Spiritkeeper : Requires 2 creatures in your graveyard and 1 mana to start. Sacrifice Hallowed Spiritkeeper making 2 additional mana. Hallowed Spiritkeeper will make tokens equal to the number of creature cards in your graveyard that each enter with a vigilance counter. Activate Tayam, Luminous Enigma removing counters from among the tokens. Return Spiritkeeper with the Tayam activation. Sacrifice Spiritkeeper and/or tokens for mana. Once you have more than 2 other creatures in the graveyard you will not have to sacrifice Spiritkeeper unless you need more counters to keep the engine going. At this point you can start returning other permanents CMC 3 or less.

Tayam, Luminous Enigma , Phyrexian Altar , and Hallowed Spiritkeeper : Requires 2 creatures in your graveyard and 2 mana to start. Sacrifice Hallowed Spiritkeeper making an additional mana.

In response sacrifice Enthusiast, then tokens until you have 3 mana. Return Enthusiast with the Tayam activation. This engine will not return any other permanents. It is used to find one of the other engines and then you leave Enthusiast in the graveyard and start the other engine.
