Circle of Protection: Blue Discussion

BMHKain on Descisions... Descisions... New Gates... or ...

1 year ago

I'm trying to take note of all of what you superiors stated, but overnight heated debates can be too much on me. My apologies for such a notion...

BTW, anyone who still cares, how good would be with stuff like Blue Ward, Blue Scarab, Circle of Protection: Blue, & Rune of Protection: Blue for enemy players for instance? Not much? Also, any suggestions for stuff that are good for , & , but nothing else in other colors without needing to sac my stuff? Also wonder how good Jaya Ballard, Task Mage is...

DuTogira on Pili-Pala and Grand Architect Infinite ...

4 years ago

As many of you may know, my biggest project on tappedout has been making a competitive modern Grand Architect + Pili-Pala deck. In my search for cards to make the lists as competitive as possible though, I have run across a couple of other interesting interactions that these two creatures can abuse, so I figured I would go ahead and share them here.
Note about this thread: This is not a list of win-cons which are good when combined with infinite mana. This is a list of ways that either Grand Architect or Pili-Pala can create an infinite combo without the other.

Pili-Pala + Training Grounds + Viridian Longbow = infinite damage
Grand Architect + Training Grounds + Umbral Mantle = infinite colorless mana and a ridiculously large creature. this combo will not work if a non-artifact creature is equipped with the mantle
Grand Architect + Staff of Domination + Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas OR Ensoul Artifact = infinite colorless mana, infinite life, infinite card draw, and infinite tap stuff
Grand Architect + Painter's Servant = just add some myr/scarecrows or something and you can cast your whole hand on turn 3. As a bonus, you could also run Circle of Protection: Blue in that kind of deck for funzies.

Just figured I would throw this list out there... because I don't think anyone else is going to stumble on as many ways to break GA and Pili as I will. I will keep the list updated as I find more stuff.
