Banishing Knack Discussion

Gracco on Plays a Lot like "Hit Me" in Black Jack!!!

Retraction Helix, Banishing Knack you need a way to go infinite with your artifacts and the altar. Use one of those with one of the creatures that untaps when you play an artifact. Maybe even look into Jeskai Ascendancy combo. It does what you are trying to do but more efficiently. You want 5 lands for your Ad Naus so your current land count is absolutely atrocious. Even the Ad Naus storm deck plays things that say I do not die like Angel's Grace or Phyrexian Unlife. All in all the deck looks like a fun gimmick that consistently does not go the distance.

Cryyx34 on 4-Color Jeskai Ascendancy Combo

colton815 I'm not calling it "Jeskai" due to the color scheme, I'm calling it that because of the namesake card Jeskai Ascendancy. It's not a "4-color Jeskai" Ascendancy Combo deck, it's a 4-color "Jeskai Ascendancy" Combo deck.

chadsansing I have Intruder Alarm on the back burner for now, as it requires more pieces to net mana. I'm usually combo-ing off with my Retraction Helix//Banishing Knack loops, so for Intruder Alarm I would need: my helix-ed/knack-ed creature, the creature I'm bouncing for the loop, and enough creatures to recast and net mana from that bounced creature. It's the same reason I took out Aggravated Assault: too many creatures needed made me over-extend into a wrath. Thanks for the suggestion, though!

Awesomesocks20: Nettle Drone can replace either Zephyr Scribe or Reckless Fireweaver in the combo. What this means is that it can take the place of one of the 2 cards in the combo.

It can replace Zephyr Scribe as the Banishing Knack/Retraction Helix target because it will untap every time you play one of your 0 CMC Artifacts such as Tormod's Crypt.

For this same reason it can replace Firebrand Archer if you have a Zephyr Scribe or another Nettle Drone in play and just tap it for it's ping whenever you play the 0 CMC artifacts in the infinite combo.

Feyamius on Ertai, the Controlly

"So even if I missed countering something I don't like, I return it to hand, so I can counter it later. Capsize is your best friend in this deck, even if it is a bit boring. Just as Cyclonic Rift. I still have to find something cool and synergistic here."

I found Dispersing Orb, Blizzard Specter, Banishing Knack & Retraction Helix (so Ertai can do it himself), Galecaster Colossus, and Tidespout Tyrant so far.

Funkydiscogod on Crab tribal?

I'm surprised nobody yet has made a deck around Horseshoe Crab + Heavy Arbalest. Or Horseshoe Crab and Retraction Helix/Banishing Knack.

Now, I'm off to brew something up.

You know what could really be amusing? Banishing Knack or Retraction Helix.

Casey4321: Ooh, an intriguing idea! I'll try and check it out tonight.

n0bunga: I think you have to go with the Sandman reference, man. Perhaps something about "Lord of the Dreaming" with an image of Dream (the Neil Gaiman version) perhaps?

enpc: I like this plan! Don't forget Furystoke Giant, Lightning Volley, Brawl, Retraction Helix, Banishing Knack, Shoving Match, Opposition, and Arcanis the Omnipotent if you're going all-in Paradox Engine :)

Ruffigan on Starting a Primer on Combos

Hello everyone. I've been making a primer for Pauper EDH and have now moved on to a primer for each type of combo that is possible in the format. I have completed my first section (Retraction Helix/Banishing Knack) and wanted some advice on readability and layout before I continued on to the next combo. Any criticism will be taken into account!
