Unintended Combo

I have a Galazeth Prismari deck that I call "Thopter Dork" becouse it focuses on looping treasure and thopter token generators to create infinite spell slinging mana.
Anyways, while playing I came across an unexpected win condition Academy Manufactor & Slag Strider while sacrificing treasure tokens to activate then sacrificing food tokens to ping, the realization kicked in that I'm just throwing food at everyone and literally taking the win with a food fight.
I'm sure my post is not doing this justice but it was just to dam funny not to share. What this combo lacks in power is made up for in "flavor" and laughter

Please don't waste food by throwing it at other players, use Ghirapur AEther Grid and recycle every turn ;)

The deck itself is designed to provide infinite treasure tokens.
The intended purpose of academy manufactor and slag strider is to provide something to dump infinite treasure into. Manufactor creates clues so I can draw my deck, and slag let's me just ping everyone out.
It's just in one game I got both at the same time, so with infinite food,clue, and treasure tokens. I was able to use the treasure to activate slags ability and use food to meet the sacrifice artifact requirement.
It's really not powerful it's just when you think about it it's really funny

Flavor of this combo is...delicious.

I think you could build on this by making token copies of Parcel Myr , Mimic , Golden Egg , or Gingerbrute . It might not be right for your deck, maybe somewhere else.

So if Korvold, Fae-Cursed King gets in on this mess, does that mean he's flying around eating the piles of food off the ground?? He'll catch diseases that way!

I was thinking Temur for Mycoloth and Esix, Fractal Bloom . Make the saprolings into one of the cards I listed above and Academy Manufactor goes nuts. Sure, you could do simic, but then you can't fling food at people.

There might also be some possibilities with Sultai, but that is straying a bit to far from the flavor combo RambIe was talking about.
