Found this one posted on by Goldbenboy:

Black Lotus is actually:

Whenever an opponent loses life, that player puts that many cards from the top of his or her library into his or her graveyard. (Damage dealt by sources without infect causes loss of life.)

Bloodchief Ascension
At the beginning of each end step, if an opponent lost 2 or more life this turn, you may put a quest counter on Bloodchief Ascension. (Damage causes loss of life.)

Whenever a card is put into an opponent's graveyard from anywhere, if Bloodchief Ascension has three or more quest counters on it, you may have that player lose 2 life. If you do, you gain 2 life.

The combo plays out similar to the painter-stone combo in legacy by having a card that activates a milling artifact over and over except this one will most likely deal lethal damage before you mill your opponent. Activate the Ascension using burns spells, damage, proliferate, etc. Then you have both an active Ascension and Mindcrank on the field. Any damage, discard, mill, or burn will activate the combo. Basically your opponent loses any amount of life. Mindcrank activates and they mill that many cards off their deck. This activates Ascension causing them to lose life for each card milled. This activates Mindcrank again causing them to mill more cards which activates the Ascension again. This loop continues until you mill your opponent, or their life total reaches 0 and that's game.

Both cards have relatively low costs at and so it seems like a somewhat feasible two card combo. The only problem is activating the Ascension. I was thinking of putting it in a BR deck with lots of disruption and burn. Any ideas or comments?
