Argothian Elder as well as Ley Weaver both combo with Maze of Ith, since maze doesn't actually remove the creature from combat.

Yavimaya Hollow - Protection

Maze of Ith - Combo with Argothian Elder, makes infinite mana during attack phase, use to dig or whatever you need.

Heroic Intervention - Deal with boardwipes

Same questions that above Diddy has.

Thoughts on adding Maze of Ith ? It can make infinite mana with Argothian Elder ? Its not useless on it's own because it can protect your flipped Nissa as well. The infinite green mana can be used in either Winding Canyons , Helix Pinnacle or Squall Line .

How has Elephant Grass been performing for you? Perhaps it's time to cut the grass? Lol, but curious how it performs.

Not sure if you didn't see my comment from before regarding Beast Within , I'm surprised you're not running it if you're a control deck. I'm sure there were many times you needed removal in any matchup.

Hey lonesentinel, You have put together a very nice deck. I would have some recommendations that you might like.

Asceticism is a realy good protection and works very well.

Staff of Domination a another combo-piece, for Prist of Titania or Elvish Archdruid, Marwyn… as infinitely mana, or/and infinitely darw to Psychosis Crawler

Argothian Elder , Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Elvish Guidance , Gaea's Cradle for a heavy mana

Natural Order , Chord of Calling , Summoner's Pact , Crop Rotation , Survival of the Fittest as tutor for combo creatures or lands

If your goal is to collect different combo pieces to reach your line, I would cut Great Oak Guardian and Grothama, All-Devouring out, because they do less for the goal or only once on ETB.

I am available for any questions,

best regards


Emppulini on Infinite Combos in EDH - Experiment Kraj Budget

I started looking at Experiment Kraj deck to make a home for a Ley Weaver + Lore Weaver combo and as you've had Kraj list for quite a while I'd like your take on it as well as replacing Argothian Elder with Ley Weaver which fetches Lore Weaver (or vice versa) as a alternative win-con with infinite mana by milling out opponents or drawing into other combos ourself

I'm less of a "combo" player and more of a "synergy" player.

My problem with combos is that, while they can generate infinite and unbreakable locks on the game, if just one piece if removed the entire thing falls apart.

With synergy, even if half of your boardstate is gone, the half that remains can still function.

I recently "discovered" a combo / synergy between Myr Matrix and Mana Echoes that I want to experiment with in my next deck. I'm thinking Izzet, running Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer in semi-Myr tribal.

Basically the combo doesn't work unless you have at least 4 Myr on the field. If you have Mana Echoes already on the field with Myr Matrix sitting there and have literally nothing else, you can drop a Myr Battlesphere and immediately generate , pay into Matrix and get right back out of it.

I'm not entirely sure what to do with the deck or which direction to go, but I'm thinking spell-slinger / storm. The potential is there for an immense amount of mana. There is also Saheeli, the Gifted , Urza, Lord High Artificer , Tolarian Academy .

And I'd be remiss if I didn't shoe-horn in Day of the Dragons and Descent of the Dragons .

So yeah, it's not exactly a "game-winning" combo, and it does take a few cards to set up, but the possibility of generating BOTH infinite mana AND infinite tokens is just too good to not build.

Also, my Oathbreaker deck that runs Kiora, Master of the Depths with Karn's Temporal Sundering as the Signature Spell. In a ramp deck, you can literally go infinite turns.

Also in that deck I have Argothian Elder with Wirewood Lodge . If you have one other land that can add at least two mana, such as Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Gaea's Cradle , Simic Growth Chamber , Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun , or even just a basic Forest with Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger on the field then you can also generate infinite mana.

Yes, I can generate both infinite turns and infinite mana in the same deck.

Shameless self plug. Sorry, I rambled on. I'll hide in an accordion as to not be rude with a dissertation on my hobby, lol.

I really like the concept, and the tapdown for an extra turn is a really good mechanic to balance it. It also works as amazing synergy in Simic with cards such as Kiora's Follower and Argothian Elder .

I'd definitely run it. :)

Replace Greenweaver Druid with Argothian Elder . It's better mana and can create inf. mana with Wirewood Lodge .
