Painter's Servant + Grindstone can always get there, Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth +Outlet for infinite mana can do it too.

Parallax Wave + Opalescence +Etb-Creature goes infinite too.

Tons of easy infinite combos xD

Thank you! You actually gave me a lot of clarification for KCI loops, mana generation and such, with this deck! I have an artifact deck, but until recently I didn't own a KCI, so I didn't put much thought into its combos, this list helps a bunch. Also, it sure looks like a super cool deck to play.

I do have two suggestions for the deck still. One of them is Rings of Brighthearth , which is a bit a pricy card, but a bonkers one. It single handedly makes infinite mana with Basalt Monolith , and enables a bunch of other loops and combos with stuff like Voltaic Key . The other suggestion is Aetherflux Reservoir , and I know, it's the same thing all over again, but sometimes they exiled my few win cons, and this looks like a really good one, infinitely looping stuff in and out of the graveyard

I'll try to keep things budget friendly. First, get rid of all 7 of your mana rocks that cost but only add 1 mana. Generator Servant , Basalt Monolith , Worn Powerstone , Coalition Relic , Crystal Vein , and Lotus Petal if it's in budget.

Aqueous Form , Bonus Round , Smoke , Cataclysm , Razia's Purification , Long-Term Plans , Brainstorm , Dream Cache , Ral Zarek , and Dragon Breath are all good budget(ish) options.

One correction to GhostChieftain’s point - Grim Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth does not work, though Rings and Basalt Monolith does.

I’m a rather big fan of Urza, Lord High Artificer as a win condition, since he both turns your non-rock Artifacts into coloured mana rocks, and serves as an outlet for infinite mana. He makes for a relatively easy Lab Man win that mitigates your concerns with that line. You can exile your entire library, including your counterspells, cast lab man with counterspells to protect it, then fire off a draw one (still with protection) for the win.

Im going to go ahead and not assume that you have anything quite yet and go through the common inf mana lines as well as infinite The Chain Veil . Sorry if these are redundant, but I feel like I shouldn't assume.

Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal + at least 3 mana worth of mana rocks= inf mana

Grim Monolith / Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth / Power Artifact = inf colorless mana

Deadeye Navigator + Peregrine Drake / Palinchron / Great Whale = inf land untaps

Grand Architect + Pili-Pala = inf mana

High Tide + Palinchron = inf mana

High Tide + Capsize + Palinchron / Great Whale =inf land untaps

Deadeye Navigator + Deceiver Exarch + Gilded Lotus =inf mana

The Chain Veil + Teferi, Temporal Archmage = infinite pw abilities

The Chain Veil + Teferi, Temporal Archmage + Tezzeret the Seeker = inf pw abilities w/o confusing new players

The Chain Veil + Everflowing Chalice w/at least 4 counters+ Tezzeret the Seeker = inf pw abilities

High Tide + Candelabra of Tawnos + The Chain Veil + Tezzeret the Seeker = $$$inf pw abilities and inf mana

With inf mana, anything that has forced draw x or mill x wins the game.

Another reliable win con is Karn, the Great Creator and Mycosynth Lattice as long as your opponents don't have a board presence.

With inf mana Deadeye Navigator combos, you can add in Deceiver Exarch to any of them and tap down your opponents at upkeep or better yet Riftwing Cloudskate / Venser, Shaper Savant to bounce all of their permanents.

You could also Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir + Knowledge Pool / Omen Machine to lock them out of casting spells

Hopefully at least something here helps!

Jason_Haley no need to remove the combo you mentioned. Basalt Monolith works just fine with Rings of Brighthearth . You don't copy it's mana ability but the untap, that's legal.

Blazenitro Basalt + Mesmeric does indeed flip the library, but there are a couple reasons I have decided to pass on it for Seeker of Skybreak instead

Basalt does have a few benefits over Seeker though

  • Harder to remove permanent type
  • No summoning sickness, you can engage the combo right away
  • No colored mana cost requirement (this has never been an issue in this deck, but still worth noting)

If you want to play this deck, you could choose to run Basalt Monolith in place of Seeker, or you could run them both. I have opted to run just one, as the two piece library flipper combo is still going to be slower and harder to assemble than Hermit Druid by himself.
