Chaining extra turns could be really good, like Edric, except instead of relying on combat damage youd be relying on flipping take turn spells (theyre usually cmc5 - 8); you'd have to hit maybe 5 or so to win, which isnt impossible considering black and blue tutors. Technically it's a 5 card combo since you need Insidious Dreams + 4 cards but that's not often too difficult if Yuriko engine is going.
