Burst of Speed Discussion

Bananastormcount20, I've got you on the tags. Heads up, (not sure if you know and there was just some error) but to tag something you need to put brackets at the beginning and end of the card name. Example: [ [ Mass Hysteria ] ] (without the space between the word and brackets) becomes Mass Hysteria. Also, you can double check yourself when you go to preview comment. You should be able to check if the tags show up there.

I think there are some issues with consistency in this deck, but damn if it isn't a hell of a lot of fun to storm off with. I think the Wish Board could use some improvement with cards like Pyroclasm, Burst of Speed for a quick kill (but that one is kinda marginal/win more), Shattering Spree, Ruination.

Given that you're Grixis, I'd suggest looking up Doomsday as well, but I don't know the black part of the pie as well... Hope this helps!

and are my favorites, with coming right behind.
Like , I like the freedom of passion and self-expression. I like 's instant removal and direct damage. It's also great for giving your creatures a Burst of Speed.
Like , I seek out knowledge and like to understand the way things work. Counterspells and evasion for the win!

I am assuming prowler is on board, once you have it then you can get the cards nessicary to play Zombie Infestation to get the infinite zombie tokens, and then give them haste with Burst of Speed. You DO NOT need to have Infestation on the battlefield when you start the combo. Lotleth Troll is only there to discard dredge cards to mill your library until you have The Gitrog Monster in graveyard to recur/Dakmor to dredge/ any other cards to recur if I include cards like Noxious Revival.

Hmm, well, you've changed your list since my last comment so that invalidates some of the points I've mentioned previously. Still, the inclusion of a second SSG isn't going to guarantee you mill a land every time you dredge Dakmor Salvage. This is my primary sticking point, that the combo can fall apart too easily.
My other sticking point is that playing against this deck would absolutely suck. I get to sit here while you dredge away your whole library how many times in order to end up with 2x SSG in hand? Now how many more total library cycles to get the one Burst of Speed that is requisite? You will have to walk through the entire combo due to the nature of how it needs to dredge a land with each discard - no saying "I've got Melira, Sylvok Outcast and Viscera Seer on board and just resolved Murderous Redcap to go infinite, you lose unless you can respond at instant speed" since that's just not possible with the mechanics you're using.
This isn't to say you shouldn't play this or that you're a bad person or anything along those lines. Rather good on you for coming up with and exploring something new that others aren't aware of. I'm sorry if I came off a little aggro with my other comments as that wasn't my intent - carry on!

The drawing of the card from Dakmor Salvage being discarded duels its own dredge trigger. If another land is MILLED in the 2 CARDS from the dredge effect, then gitrog will gain an additional draw trigger that will not be replaced by a dredge. As you mill infinitely through your library with the combo you will eventually mill or discard an Emrakul. This resets your library and shuffles it, allowing you to mill through it again and draw even more cards from it. Eventually you will have drawn your whole library from this and get BRR by exiling two Simian Spirit Guides with their abilities, and playing a swamp from Gitrog's extra-land-per-turn ability. With this mana you will cast Zombie Infestation and discard most of your hand to Zombie Infestation except for the essential combo pieces like Burst of Speed and Dakmor Salvage, gaining you many zombie tokens. Repeat the combo as nessicary to gain a lethal amount of zombie tokens, and then cast Burst of Speed with your last red mana, and attack for lethal.
