Halphinian on Infinite combo challenge

3 weeks ago

I have one:

Mycosynth Lattice + (Pentavus + Gilded Lotus + Dross Scorpion) + Cogwork Assembler + Storm Crow = infinite mana, which leads to infinite activations of Cogwork Assembler, which leads to infinite Storm Crows on the spot.

Is is unnecessarily complicated? Yes. Is it worth it? Hell yes.

I choose Selective Memory

I think you need more artifacts that can kill themselves and a lot of cantrips/carddraw to be able to assemble the combo faster.

Serum Visions


Thirst for Knowledge would do a great job in doing that

Renegade Map is pretty ok it sacs itself and helps you hit your landdrops. Play 4 of them. You dont have any special lands so id cut Expedition Map its just to slow.

I would play 4 MindStone they are very flexible and can be put ito your graveyard if you want to.

You dont have a lot of ways to sacrifice artifacts. So id get rid of Cathodion and Myr Retriever.

You also dont need the ramp of Etherium Sculptor.

You dont have a lot of use for Mobile Garrison same is true for Dross Scorpion so id cut them.

Streamlining and adding carddraw will make your deck much more consistent you should really try it.

I hope i was helpfull and you will enjoy my suggestions.

Mimic Vat, Coretapper and Dross Scorpion. Not infinite, but for each three mana lets you put 3 charge counters on Darksteel Reactor.

Also, I agree with Suns_Champion, Runnign Zur seems fun. Can get stuff like Tempered Steel as well.

Most definitely my dude! This is but the latest attempt at a competitive Shirei deck. Please give it a playtest for me!

The actual winning combos are infinite sac loops:

Nether Traitor + Genesis Chamber / Pawn of Ulamog + Phyrexian Altar


Living Death + Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed + Phyrexian Altar + Some dudes in the gravey (maybe a Blood Artist?)

throw in your Myr Friends, Ashnod's Altar, Dross Scorpion, Thousand-Year Elixir, and you got a lot of options

Can also just drown people in stax, and use the Aetherworks Marvel (and my boi Dross Scorpion) to cough forth horrible abominations (Chimney Imp + Possessed Portal is like the hottest thing to me)

If you're going for janky land hate, Karn, Silver Golem + Mycosynth Lattice + Dross Scorpion will do it. Make all lands artifacts, then pay to Karn, making a land a creature. It dies as a state based effect (since it has zero toughness) and Dross Scorpion triggers, untapping one of your lands which is an artifact.

rinse and repeat until your opponents have no lands.

Sorry I didn't make the combos clear Buufreak. Rings of Brighthearth copies the untap abilty, not the mana ability, of Basalt Monolith. As for Dross Scorpion and Myr Turbine, it does work.

110.5f A token thats in a zone other than the battlefield ceases to exist. This is a state-based action; see rule 704. (Note that if a token changes zones, applicable triggered abilities will trigger before the token ceases to exist.)

I think you misunderstood the final combo. I am only using Mycosynth Lattice to make Goblin Welder and artifact, which allows me to untap it on the Dross Scorpion trigger. I am not sacrificing the goblin.

That being said, I may still be missing something.

Dross Scorpion to go with the aforementioned Mycosynth Lattice. Blows up all of your opponent's lands. (Only use it when you really want to rub the salt in the wound.)

I gotta say, since you're running Ashnod's Altar, Basalt Monolith, Junk Diver, Dross Scorpion and Myr Retriever, you should consider running Purphoros, God of the Forge, you're just adding infinite damage to the already existing infinite mana combo!

Also, Purphoros is straight value throughout the rest of the game!
