Commander Deck: Espir Combo

I use EDHRED to build most of my commander decks, but this time I thought I would try something different. The primary group I play with build and play tier one competitive decks, so this deck may not be a fun build in your group. A lot of players frown on the type of combos I put in this deck. I built a deck purely on the combo pieces I had in my collection. I chose Ravos, Soultender and Silas Renn, Seeker Adept as partner commanders. Their combined effects should allow me to recur creatures and artifacts from my graveyard to keep my combo pieces on the battlefield.

Ravos, Soultender

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wanted to be as fast as possible so I kept the mana curve low. As you can see from the chart the majority of my spells are below 3 converted mana casting cost, 44 cards to be exact.  The remaining 21 spells are my finishers though if you can get 5-8  three drops on the battlefield you can combo off and win the game.

The mana base ended up a little heavier in white mana than I initially wanted but still seems to have a good balance.  Colorless mana makes up 33% of the overall deck composition, with enough mana rocks and multicolor lands that casting spells have not been an issue when gold-fishing this deck.
 
 
 
The whole point of this deck is to have an endless amount of combos in your hand and on the battlefield.  There are several ways to prevent all damage dealt to you and or to your creatures.  Darksteel Myr, Palace Guard, Palisade Giant with cards like Ghostly Possession, Pariah, and Indestructibility are a sure way to lock your opponent from causing you damage. Archon of Justice and Kami of False Hope with recursion effects from Ravos or any of the other artifacts and enchantments on the board makes an endless loop of damage prevention. Infinite mana combos allow you dump mana into artifacts like Walking Ballista, Snake Basket, and multiple recast effects, like Nims Deathmantale with Phyrexian Plaguelord to clear your opponents board. Take a look at the list and let me know what combos you see in the comment section.
