I'm trying to transfer Life combo to EDH.

Combo is Daru Spiritualist or Task Force + targeting abilities from Shuko or en-Kor guys. Then sacrifice 1/million creature from lands or Worthy Cause and you have infinite life.

So here's decklist:

General - Doran

// Lands
1 [ON] Starlit Sanctum
1 [SOK] Miren, the Moaning Well
1 [10E] Treetop Village
1 [SHM] Wooded Bastion
1 [10E] Llanowar Wastes
1 [ON] Tranquil Thicket
1 [RAV] Temple Garden
1 [ON] Secluded Steppe
7 [MR] Plains (4)
9 [ST] Forest (2)
5 [TSP] Swamp (4)
1 [10E] Caves of Koilos
1 [SHM] Reflecting Pool
1 [TSB] Pendelhaven
1 [RAV] Overgrown Tomb
1 [8E] City of Brass
1 [7E] Brushland
1 [GP] Godless Shrine

// Creatures
1 [CHK] Yosei, the Morning Star
1 [ON] Krosan Tusker
1 [ON] Ravenous Baloth
1 [NE] Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero
1 [NE] Defiant Falcon
1 [SC] Daru Spiritualist
1 [CHK] Sakura-Tribe Elder
1 [UD] Academy Rector
1 [SH] Warrior en-Kor
1 [SH] Spirit en-Kor
1 [TSP] Outrider en-Kor
1 [SH] Shaman en-Kor
1 [MM] Task Force
1 [SC] Eternal Dragon
1 [MR] Duplicant
1 [FD] Eternal Witness
1 [SHM] Kitchen Finks
1 [RAV] Loxodon Hierarch
1 [RAV] Civic Wayfinder

// Spells
1 [PLC] Damnation
1 [LRW] Primal Command
1 [7E] Duress
1 [CFX] Path to Exile
1 [OD] Animal Boneyard
1 [10E] Condemn
1 [TE] Worthy Cause
1 [CHK] Ghostly Prison
1 [FD] Wayfarer's Bauble
1 [FD] Night's Whisper
1 [9E] Weird Harvest
1 [BOK] Shuko
1 [PS] Eladamri's Call
1 [JU] Test of Endurance
1 [9E] Wrath of God
1 [ON] Akroma's Vengeance
1 [9E] Rampant Growth
1 [PLC] Evolution Charm
1 [MR] Lightning Greaves
1 [FUT] Summoner's Pact
1 [RAV] Chord of Calling
1 [CHK] Kodama's Reach
1 [RAV] Congregation at Dawn
1 [TE] Disenchant
1 [FD] Beacon of Immortality
1 [SC] Wing Shards
1 [MR] Terror
1 [GP] Castigate
1 [MOR] Idyllic Tutor
1 [MI] Enlightened Tutor
1 [GP] Mortify
1 [RAV] Putrefy
1 [LRW] Oblivion Ring
1 [TSP] Krosan Grip
1 [ON] Renewed Faith
1 [9E] Diabolic Tutor
1 [MR] Tooth and Nail
1 [RAV] Farseek
1 [DS] Reap and Sow
1 [6E] Exile
1 [MR] Sylvan Scrying
1 [MR] Oblivion Stone
1 [SC] Unspeakable Symbol
1 [RAV] Shred Memory

Can you think of any budget improvements? I know for example Pernicius Deed, Thoughtseize, fetch lands or Sylvan/Wordly Tutors would be great, but I just can't afford them Wink

I like that you don't need a sac outlet to win if you have a doran in play, you can just swing for infinite.

Hollowed Burial is my favorite wrath effect for EDH, as it permanently takes care of generals.

Sensei's Divining Top is a great card, and I think you have the shuffle effects to abuse it.

Is transmute legal in edh?? If it is I think you should abuse the transmute cards for tutoring effects.

brainspoil,dimir mech,dimir house guard, shred mem, phalanx

condemn for attacking general?

Doran seems techy though infinite dmg with toughness combo.

Proteus staff also does the same thing to a general but can do it over and over again.

Thanks for answers.

Sensei is so obvious that I just forgot to put it in Wink
Hallowed Burial - great card I really didn't know it

Transmute is legal, but cards with transmute for 4 or 5 seem useless. I've put already Shred Memory (for 2), but after thinking Dimir Machinations (for 3) would be also great tutor.

Unfortunetely Proteus Staff is blue...

Now I'm thinking about stuff to protect my combo. Gaddock for Wrath, Explosives etc and maybe Sword of Light and Shadow to prevent random Path to Exile or Terrors.

I only have 2 creatures that can be 'pumped' and combo rely too much on them. Usually I'm trying to go off in 1 turn, eg. playing Chord or Congegation at EOT and put both combo creatures at once. At this point I find Sensei works extremely great with EOT Congregation Wink

It seems like Gaddock also shuts off a good chunk of your deck, so it might not be a good call, especially if you plan on playing both combo pieces on the same turn anyway.

EDH, at least one MWS, seems to mostly be blue decks with lots of countermagic. Gaea's Herald or Dosan the Falling Leaf might be better protection. Then again, I don't know how many wrath effects are in your meta.

You do realize that all the life in the world won't save you from General-Damage right?
