Close to a decade in the making, the imminent DESI experiment ( <> ) promises to revolutionise  our understanding of Dark Energy and extend large-scale structure studies to z~2.  But what comes next?  The unprecedented depth of LSST will enable 'dropout' selection of Lyman-break galaxies at z~3 and 4 that prove ideal for studies of the primordial Universe and horizon-scale gravity.   Based on recent work (,, I'll discuss the potential of this science case for future surveys, in particular with respect to the synergy with CMB lensing and DESI itself.
