It's a janky one, but it's a fun one.

Vrondiss, Rage of Ancients is in play. You also have Terror of the Peaks in play.

Slap some death-proof on Vrondiss and poke him with a stick. As long as you can ping him with just one single damage, you're good.

It's as simple as getting another creature into play, hitting him with a shock spell. Hell you can even attack and if he is blocked, cast Heroic Intervention in response. He takes the damage but survives.

Once Vrondiss is hit for some damage, he will make a 5/4 Dragon Spirit token.

Now we CAN NOT have the token deal damage. If we do, the token is exiled. That's why we need Terror of the Peaks, because Terror deals the ETB damage.

Actually, we can have the token deal damage. If we use Dragon Tempest, Warstorm Surge, Scourge of Valkas, etc then what we can do is have the 5/4 slap Vrondiss on his big ol'e scaly behind and ghost him like a bad date. We can still win with a pinger mentioned below.

Throw that damage at Vrondiss. He is hit, makes a 5/4, gets hit again, makes a 5/4, gets hit again, makes a 5/4...

If you are able to hit him prior to combat and you have something such as Fervor in play, you can swing for infinite damage. (To the best of my knowledge, this only works with Terror of the Peaks. If you intend to swing for lethal combat damage, you need the 5/4 tokens in play - obviously. Because Terror deals the damage, the tokens remain. However, you can always have the tokens deal the damage via other methods, but they vanish. In that case, your wincon is below.)

If you are past combat, you can machinegun the table with any ETB pinger such as Impact Tremors or any other one.

If you have death-proof, Blazing Sunsteel is a card you might look into to sustain a loop of all the dragon spirits, as backup for Terror of the Peaks. Just slap it on a death-proof Vrondiss, Rage of Ancients, poke it, and it can keep hitting itself until you decide how many million dragon spirits is enough.

I remember facing this combo on spell table about a week ago, it was scary. Didnt know he combos until that game.

Dragon Tempest and Scourge of Valkas can still KO a single opponent by themselves if done correctly. Just hit Vrondiss and stack the triggers so that you get another token before the other dies. They will eventually die, but you can stack the triggers so that you have 100 soon-to-die tokens and have the last one KO a player since you have over 100 dragons out. Of course, an Impact Tremors would be preferable, but sometimes someone just needs to die.
