There are ways to get there definitely. It competes I think with Laboratory Maniac.
Just mentioning that probably needs a bit of assistance from something that can mill you, like a Sun Titan (or the new guy) and/or Griselbrand. And a bit of a build around (extra creatures).

I'm trying a list without bridges with the giant and creeping c. ..... seems to work well but fundamentally it is not different from the usual list of dredges has the same qualities and weaknesses.
