i don't know enough about the format, but DAMN! almost consistently turn 1 for the kill! the only thing i could say is that, to my understanding, you can draw yourself out all you want during your turn; its when you can't draw at the start of a turn that you deck out (in modern). has me wondering if this can be replicated for modern now...

when it comes to infinite combos, its easiest to compare to simpler ones that fall under 2 categories - controlled and uncontrolled
controlled - Gilded Lotus, Captain of the Mists, and Illusionist's Bracers create a controlled infinite mana combo. so long as i choose to make it happen, it does. while there are lots more like this, it doesn't change the circumstance
uncontrolled - Life and Limb, Sporemound create an uncontrolled combo due to modify and ability. because LaL is turning forests and saprolings into a unified type, and Sporemound triggers due to a land coming in to play, it is a continuous unbreakable loop. in terms of this, when it comes to competitive play, you have to define a limit (ie "i make ten million tokens"); however, you must be able to prove the existence of said limit, or be disqualified. i had this clarified by a local game store whom the owner regularly attends tournaments. when it comes to uncontrolled combos, you want to try to add in an element that allows a slight amount of control through continuous checks - in this case, i used Pandemonium. as each creature came in, it dealt damage to the opponent, and a life check would have to happen
hope this helps
