Since Dramatic Reversal will trigger Guttersnipe each time, you can deal infinite damage to your opponent. A player might also cast Brainstorm to get us to lose to our own Notion Thief. It’s grown into one of the most popular Johnny combo tools. Most of them can be shortcutted, but I make sure to announce that Massacre Girl’s trigger comes after Craterhoof Behemoth. It pairs with another creature thanks to its soulbond ability, which allows you to exile that creature and bring it back to the battlefield for two mana. So, by having ways to quickly grow the graveyard, we can dig to Primal Surge faster than normal. Hopefully a primer at some point. If someone casts Angel’s Grace or Teferi’s Protection, then we still have options. Morselhoarder comes into play with two -1/-1 counters and can add one mana by removing one of these counters. In the two years I’ve had this deck, I’ve never lost after resolving Primal Surge, but there are still ways in which players can thwart the plan at the last second. The new Exarch comes to the battlefield and untaps Kiki-Jiki. Basically, with eleven mana open (or as little as nine if you have Bouncelands, Temple, Cabal Coffers, etc) cast Tooth and Nail, putting Palinchron and Eternal Witness into play. You only need a couple of non-Thopter creatures or pretty much any way of ending your opponent, but it shouldn’t be that difficult at this point. Although he is a veteran with over 10 years of experience in Magic, he sees himself as a casual player. Attention! That’s okay, because Primal Surge is meant for the dreamer in all of us. While I could have easily built around Muldrotha, the Gravetide or Yarok, the Desecrated, I wanted the unique challenge that The Mimeoplasm brings. We respond to them by giving our creatures Persist with Cauldron of Souls, and then sacrifice everything through Dimir House Guard. There’s always potential that our opponents have a true silver bullet for our combo turn. However, I’ve made an effort to have more removal that requires sacrificing the creature. Edit. So, without further ado, let’s get to it.eval(ez_write_tag([[300,250],'draftsim_com-box-4','ezslot_2',153,'0','0'])); This one is not about a single infinite combo, but a single card that has the potential to enable multiple infinite combos. As far as infinite combos go, this one is devilishly fun for me, and you’ll soon learn why. In my prior article, I discussed what makes up these different eras of legendary creature design. Just let your group know you have them at hand, theyre good to have at a table if some fresh meat comes up with some tricked out unfun shennanigan deck, to just infinitely kill him and then go back to your fun game of edh. Penance for the Curio. A unique challenge is that we have to pick carefully over what cards we want in our hand, versus those we want in the bin for our commander to copy. So, here’s our first one. Because of this, I steer away from cards like Mulldrifter and Disciple of Bolas. You’ll need Ral, Storm Conduit, two copies of Expansion, four mana to cast them in succession, and enough mana to get the combo going. If you have a creature with at least three power, you’ll always gain more than you’re spending. For this, we have Feldon’s Cane and Perpetual Timepiece to rebuild the library. But I wanted a commander that wasn’t as much “plug and play” right out of the box. We follow that by sacrificing Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse. It’s easy to make it look like you’re having a below-average game, and are saving your removal spells for more important things. Mill isn't good in EDH, take the cards out because of that. We just need to kill off our Collector Ouphe before activating them. With Omniscience, you’re able to cast spells from your hand without paying their mana costs. If you want to make the deck more consistent, take out everything only used to go infinite and put in tutors and transmute cards. First, Ral needs to be on the battlefield. This facade gets more believable if you play cards like Vedalken Orrery, Leyline of Anticipation, and Alchemist’s Refuge.
