Right. So now you have 1 spare mana and no spirits after you play Assistant for 3.
Now you sack Assistant and return Retriever to your hand, going up to 3 mana in your pool and generating another spirit, which you don't have to sacrifice..
You play Retriever, going back down to 1 mana in your pool.
So you end at the same point in the loop, with Assistant in the grave and Retriever in play, but you're up 1 mana and a spirit, without using any cost reducer.

Do you even need the cost reducers for the combo? If Quintorius is in play, he'll produce 2 spirits every loop. Each loop costs 5 mana to cast both artifact creatures, so if you sacrifice every other spirit, you still end up with infinite colorless mana and infinite spirit tokens. Does that check out?

Hmmm. Maybe. This deck doesn't really depend on having that many lands, but I'll try the edit I just made, cutting 3 lands and replacing them with big creatures that landcycle.

That's a great suggestion. I'll try swapping it out for blight sickle. They're both defensive tools, but the goggles are less mana investment over time and do better against trample, one of this deck's biggest problems.
Now that I'm looking, though, I think it's time for a huge overhaul of the deck. Thanks for getting me to take a closer look again!
