Amulet of Quoz

Artifact

Remove Amulet of Quoz from your deck before playing if you're not playing for ante.

Tap, Sacrifice Amulet of Quoz: Target opponent may add the top card of his or her library to the ante. If he or she doesn't, you flip a coin. If you win the flip, that player loses the game. If you lose the flip, you lose the game. Play this ability only during your upkeep.

UrzasUnderstudy on Alternate Win and Loss Conditions

Given that you have got the Amulet of Quoz on the list--even though it is banned now in pretty much every format, would you consider putting the Un-win/lose-cons like The Cheese Stands Alone on the list for completeness sake?

Because you know I am all about the cheese.

I dunno if Rayenous will make it viewable or even has the list still so I would start by looking over the following stolen from that forum and build from there.

KrazyCaley said "Rayenous has it.

There are multiple ways to do it, but they all involve variations on the same basic pattern.

Step 1 - Mindslaver + Academy Ruins lock.

Step 2 - Prevent your opponent and preferably also yourself from losing (since this procedure will take a long time) through the use of Platinum Angel or Abyssal Persecutor .

Step 3 - Donate a mechanism to your opponent whereby they can put cards they own into their deck. Rayenous used Research on an Isochron Scepter . My version of this deck used Death Wish (which works since our opponent can't lose the game while we have the Angel/Persecutor out), but Research is faster. Repeatedly have them add in cards until their entire collection is in the deck. Note that you will probably also need to Donate something that generates any color mana to your opponent as well.

Step 4 - Use Amulet of Quoz to convert their entire deck, which is now their entire collection, into their ante (true, we'd have to be playing with ante rules, which are now gone, but hey, that's the fun).

Step 5 - Blow up whatever thing you set up to prevent your opponent from losing.

Step 6 - Enjoy all your friend's Magic cards."

Now I don't foresee anyone agreeing to ante so you might leave that part out... Also a lot of people even in casual games will say that only a side board can be added in with wish cards and commander doesn't use a side board. So most people play with the idea that if you use wish cards you need to let them know ahead of time.

At this point I would be looking at a commander. Maybe? Could add in another color if you want... Parhaps use Lazav, Dimir Mastermind and mill their crazy sized library to the grave? Actually a better option might be The Mimeoplasm for the commander. Cards like Villainous Wealth would be great.

Incorporate the Nicol Bolas infinite ante combo!I came up with the combo but need to build a true deck around it.

Use the card Amulet of Quoz, to force your opponent to ante their entire library after establishing an infinite Mindslaver combo. You will make the decision each turn for your opponent to reject the coin flip, which forces him to ante another card each turn.

ErebusX on Gatewatch format

1.) In this casual, multiplayer format, you start with a life total of 30 (rather than the usual 20) and choose a Planeswalker (or legendary creature that transforms into a planeswalker) to serve as your General. You then choose cards to match your Generals color identity to build your deck. A card's color identity is any mana symbol appearing on that card.

2.) The Gatewatch deck contains 65 cards: 1 General and 64 others. Your deck may contain only one of any individual card, with the exception of basic lands.

3.) The General enters play in the general zone. You may cast your General from the general zone for its normal costs, plus an additional one mana for each previous time it's been cast from the general zone this game. If your General is ever headed to the graveyard or exiled, you may return it to its general zone instead.

4.) All cards, including your General, must have a Converted Mana Cost (CMC) of 6 or less. In the case of cards with X in their mana cost, X = 0 for the purpose of calculating CMC for construction purposes.

5.) In addition to the normal Magic win conditions, you can win in this format by raising your General's Loyalty to 30 or higher. If recast from the general zone, your General's loyalty always resets to its base value.
