Well you could try Blasting Station and a cheap creature like Ornithopter.

I dont really have a good guess on how budget you are trying to be.

SteelSentry on Karametras Win Cons

6 days ago

Having big creatures is a pretty viable win condition, especially since G/W has a variety of tools to protect a big army. Those colors have a lot of incidental life gain, and Karametra makes a lot of mana, so Aetherflux Reservoir can take out one or two players easily.

As for combos in those colors, Reveillark and Karmic Guide with a sacrifice outlet can infinitely sacrifice and recur a 2 power creature, and you can also get infinite sacrifice triggers with Sun Titan and either Saffi Eriksdotter or Angelic Renewal. Common sacrifice outlets are Altar of Dementia or Blasting Station to win on the spot, or either of the mana altars to make infinite mana.

With all the lands out of your deck, a big X spell or a land animation effect like Jolrael, Empress of Beasts can also close out the game.

Captain_Crowbar on Darien, King of Combo

Hey man, love the deck! I`m currently building a Darien deck myself and had completely overlooked Blasting Station, I'm definitely making room for that one!

As soon as I saw that card I started to look for other artifacts that deal damage to you and I found a pretty crazy one: Angel's Trumpet. As long as you have one of the Soul Warden family members in play, you're pretty much only gonna benefit like crazy from this card, and as a bonus it will also affect your opponents, curious on your thoughts about it. :D

harbingerofduh: Thanks for the comment! I hadn't thought of cockroaches like that so I'll reconsider (probably in paper as soon as paper magic is possible again). I also like the idea of Blasting Station so I'll check that out as well.

Fallen Ideal is a maybe, and it definitely has upside. My only hesitation is that my commander is already usually a major target, and sticking something on it that could allow me to hit someone for 21 makes it even more so. But it's still worth a look in my opinion.

While Altar of the Brood does mill quite a lot, I think it's a bit unrealistic for it to mill anyone out unless I'm in the middle of going off, in which case I have plenty of other ways to win at my disposal already. I also would rather not help any graveyard-based decks at the table, and it feels like there's usually at least one.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Sorry, two more suggestions:

  • Altar of the Brood is another to make use of the zillions of Thrulls you'll be generating every turn. I like it quite a bit in my own Endrek deck.

  • Blasting Station will throw your deck into turbo mode. When Endrek spits out a batch of Thrulls, each Thrull will put a Blasting Station untap trigger on the stack simultaneously. You can then respond to each one in turn because you regain priority after each effect on the stack resolves. So: six triggers on the stack, respond to the last one by sacrificing a Thrull to the Station, deal one damage. Then a trigger resolves, untapping the Station. Then respond to the next trigger in line by sacrificing a Thrull to the Station, deal one damage. Rinse and repeat.

So it's agreed then. We'll play Mothra in a UW commander shell with Flash + Thassa's Oracle, Academy Rector, Hapless Researcher, Alchemist's Apprentice, Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar, and Blasting Station and break the card before it's even been released. Glad we settled that. Easy peasy.

Commanders decks utilizing reanimated loops have a very impressive new toy. Saffi Ericksdotter, Blood Artist and company will very much enjoy this card. Potential Hulk pile candidate, for example: With a Hapless Researcher in play Flash Hulk can simply search for this card and Fishacle to win. Self sacrificing creature loops are extremely strong potential combo options, the altars (phyrexian and ashnod’s) and potentially KCI pair nicely with it, any other creature in play and Blasting Station is a combo win.

There would be a ton of combo potential with this card for commander if released with that wording.
