TheGreatDistortion117 on Energy Counters

So there's a really old card called Rasputin Dreamweaver. It doesn't look much on its own, but then you see the card Eldrazi Displacer. So here's how the combo works:

  1. Play Rasputin Dreamweaver
  2. Play Eldrazi Displacer
  3. Remove all dream counters from Rasputin for seven colorless mana
  4. Use three of that mana to activate the Displacer and flicker Rasputin, who now has seven new counters. Rinse and repeat until you have infinite mana

Now that you have infinite mana and an Eldrazi Displacer, you can flicker a different creature to get infinite energy counters. With that kind of power, there are a lot of win conditions in your deck to utilize. Aetherwind Basker, Architect of the Untamed, and Bristling Hydra are just a few examples. So that's my suggestion for the deck: Add Rasputin Dreamweaver and Eldrazi Displacer. By the way, energy is a really hard archetype to build around, so I think it's pretty cool that you went for it anyway. Nice work on the deck so far.

There definiteld are enough existing creatures that fit, and I really like the idea.

Aetherwind Basker might not look exactly like Godzilla, but a giant Lizard that shoots a laser beam gets pretty close. Phytohydra or Genesis Hydra make a decent impression of Biolante. You won't get any closer to Mothra than Moonwing Moth I guess, but the artwork fits perfectly. Traxos, Scourge of Kroog is perfect for Mecha-Godzilla.

That's what I have for now.

TypicalTimmy: I imagined Tasazashi as a giant orange scaled beast that chars everything in its wake. Try to imagine a mixture of Patron of the Akki and a japanese giant salamander the size of an Aetherwind Basker . I guess he or she could also havebeen an Elder Salamander.

Magus_of_the_Brothels definitely the creatures that benefit from tons of energy such as Whirler Virtuoso and Aetherwind Basker . Our games in our group are grindy enough for me to get quite a bit of energy even without dropping in some infinite combos. However I do like Overwhelming Stampede after I buffed a creature up. It feels pretty fair winning by smashing face with some big creatures.

Lightning Runner can provide infinite combats either by having four copies of it or with enough copies of Aetherwind Basker. There's also a 3 piece infinite combo between Whirler Virtuoso and Gonti's Aether Heart with either Panharmonicon or Decoction Module.

Interesting deck! I run a budget energy deck that's fairly competitive at Every Day I'm Pummelin'. The main takeaway card with energy is Woodweaver's Puzzleknot. Bristling Hydra is pretty cheap right now. i'd recommend the playset mainboard. At least all 4 somewhere in the 75. Aethersphere Harvester is an amazing energy card. However, the most important inclusion would be Servant of the Conduit in addition to run more lands. 20 is dangerously low, and being 3 colors means you will hardly ever it the colors you want when it's needed. Especially when you run Aetherwind Basker. Nothing wrong with the card; it's just a high cmc. I'm not a personal fan of the card, but this deck seems like Greenbelt Rampager could be a good card. Hope this helps!

Thinking of adding in Lightning Runner and Aetherwind Basker. Given the right conditions, it could result in a infinite combat phases. Maybe even include Bristling Hydra to ensure enough energy is on the board.
