Combo of the Day
Altar Of Dementia Buy + Conspiracy Buy + Bladewing's Thrall Buy
Would this work?: Name "Dragons" with Conspiracy. With a Thrall in the graveyard, play a thrall and sac it to the altar, and pull your other thrall from the graveyard for playing the thrall.. sac, pull for playing, sac... infinite.
