Just out of curiosity, why do you chose Dross Scorpion as the main piece?

Card: Dross Scorpion

Hello, I run a combo-heavy deck and I want to know where I can find a list of 2 and/or 3 card combos involving Dross Scorpion that go infinite.

If such a list doesn't exist could anyone please list any combos they know of that uses the card? I know they exist, but its such an old card that I don't think a compilation exists.

Here's a combo I know of: Dross Scorpion + Splinter Twin + Goblin Bombardment . Please post any others that you know of.

Thanks, Addrum for the feedback, and I certainly agree that some of my spellbomb/egg effects are less effective than wheels. However, I'm hesitant on any of them that dump cards into my opponent's GY due to a lot of the decks that my opponents run, but Winds of Change seems like a great card.
Staff of Nin has always been a consideration since I'm often against Mizzix of the Izmagnus and similar small commanders, but the CMC is a bit scary until I can get my hands on cards like Mana Vault or Grim Monolith. Will test though
Once I have 3-4 more fast/big mana cards, many of the larger, splashy effects will be cut for draw, wheels, and Clock of Omens synergy. Until then, Mycosynth Lattice and to a lesser extent Unwinding Clock, or Dross Scorpion feel unnecessary since most of my artifacts that tap sac themselves or are used in the combo. The Forgemaster will basically always kill itself while I have either my Commander or Rings in play. It's hard to explain, but it's mostly that those cards feel win-more judging by my average board state.
Really dig those shuffle wheels though, thanks a million!

You would benefit more of having wheels than narrow card draw like Quicksmith Genius or Endbringer. Winds of Change, Incendiary Command and Magus of the Wheel are nice budget options. Staff of Nin also would fit really well here as win con + card draw.

I'm surpriced by the lack of Mycosynth Lattice and Unwinding Clock. Dross Scorpion is a must in a Forgemaster deck.

acbooster on mikaeus and ballista?

I'm not quite sure what your asking here about them working or not.

Mikaeus will give the Ballista +1/+1, making it a base 1/1. In order to remove all of the counters from the Ballista and have it die, you would have to have it deal 1 damage to itself in order to have lethal damage marked.

This can get into an infinitely repeatable loop for anything that triggers on an artifact or creature entering or leaving the battlefield, e.g. Blood Artist and Dross Scorpion.

I hope this answers any questions you had

I wouldn't expect anyone to actually own Candelabra of Tawnos but if you ever get one, it would be fun. Extruder just has so many combos. Dross Scorpion can also do some fun combos.
