How it Works

This deck was inspired by eddyspagetti33's combo.

Basically just use all the card drawing to get Future Sight into play, then Doomsday for 2 Lion's Eye Diamonds, Lotus Petal, Tendrils, and another Doomsday. Once you play the Diamonds you'll be able to Tendrils for at least 8 with 4 of the 7 mana, then use the other 3 to Doomsday again for the same cards. Rinse, repeat. You won't ever run out of life, unless they blast you with direct damage after the first Doomsday. The great thing about Doomsday, is if you have one of the combo pieces in your hand already, say, 2 Doomsdays, you can just leave it out of the 5 and fetch Future Sight instead, allowing you to pull the combo off earlier as long as you have enough mana.
Grinding Station is on the SB with Ebony Charm as an alternative win condition. 2 Diamonds, Station, Charm and Doomsday. Play the Diamonds, sac for 6, play the Station, sac to itself, use Charm to gain a life, then Doomsday, repeat.

The main thing I'm looking for help with right now is the fastest way to get Future Sight into play. I've been experimenting with different amounts of mana accel, and the fastest I can pull off the combo is turn 3, average is 5. Also, I haven't checked out many CHK cards so if you can think of any that would help feel free to post em.

As always, advice for the SB is helpful too.
Takes advantage of the new 1.5 B/R list.

I'll rate your deck if you leave the name of the deck you want rated.
