Polaris on Kalamax Infinite Combos

3 days ago

A bit late, but there are a few other ways to do this. One is to set the loop with another copy effect (for example, Swarm Intelligence, Riku of Two Reflections, or Dualcaster Mage). Of course, it's not Kalamax copying the effect but it'll still put an arbitrary number of +1/+1 counters on it (and/or kill the table with Ral, Storm Conduit).

The second is trickier. You tap Kalamax . . . and then you wait. The moment your opponent casts an instant or sorcery, drop your copy spell and go infinite. It's not as splashy as doing it in combat, but there's something glorious about springing an infinite combo as a trap.

I'll try to keep my suggestions budget

Chaos Warp - Permanent removal

Dualcaster Mage - Value

Etali, Primal Storm - Powerhouse that works with the chaos theme

Flametongue Kavu - Removal the creature

Genesis Chamber - Army of Myrder

Hedron Archive > Sissay's Ring

Ignite the Future - Card Advantage

Inferno Titan - Burn them all

Light Up the Stage - Card Advantage

Outpost Siege - Card advantage when you need it, removal when you dont

Solemn Simulacrum - Ramp and card advantage

Tome of Legends - BEST CARD IN THE DECK. IF YOU ADD ANYTHING, ADD THIS!!!

Volcanic Offering - Removal and politics at instant speed, very useful

Nevinyrral's Disk - Wipe that deals with enchantments

Sunbird's Invocation - Card advantage. This sticking around means you usually win in a few turns with all of the value if you build your deck correctly

Ah, that makes more sense.

Nevermind, apparently Dualcaster Mage isn't modern legal.

In order for you to go infinite, you need to have a copy of a spell that copies the Mage because as soon as the original copier resolves and creates a copy of the mage, it's no longer on the stack and Dualcaster can't copy it again.

Also, this deck could easily be made modern legal; you don't really care about your graveyard (Faithless Looting) except for Rite of Flame, which is also banned, and could be easily replaced with Pyretic Ritual or Desperate Ritual and be even better because it can directly ramp you into Dualcaster Mage. I think Faithless Looting could be replaced with Thrill of Possibility or something in its ilk.

DeinoStinkus Sadly, this doesn't give mana the turn it comes out, and at 3 more mana than Domri, Anarch of Bolas it's closer to Manalith versus Lotus Petal.

Idk, I think mana at that point is really just useful in Commander, which is good so it doesn't hurt other formats. It's also really good and strong with Doubling Season, but isn't overpowered because cards like AEtherize, Toxic Deluge, Evacuation, Black Sun's Zenith, etc. can be such big blowouts. The fact it can be countered makes it pretty useful!

Honestly, I can't think of a way to break the -4, despite trying. The best I have is Dualcaster Mage and a Druid's Deliverance, Full Flowering, or Ghired's Belligerence. All of those are pretty tame considering the mage already went infinite with Heat Shimmer well before this walker. Still some strong but not op idea!

Krummy_MTG on Waiting for Godo - cEDH primer

I have been testing competitive Godo a lot recently. Since testing this list out I have been missing my copy spells like Fork. There are few better feelings than that of casting Fork to copy an Ad Nauseam.

Personally, I feel that Dualcaster Mage is a little too versatile to cut. At a minimal impact it's functionally a counterspell that you can tutor for with Imperial Recruiter. The upside is that it incidentally allows you to combo off with Twinflame, even in games where Helm of the Host has been exiled or an opponent has made casting Godo, Bandit Warlord or tutoring impossible.

At least one person was asking about Frenzied Fugue. This card is the truth! The card wins games that feel impossible otherwise. I've gained control of an opponent's Necropotence recently (and won the following turn). It can even bypass potential blockers with indestructible or help you to cast godo through stax pieces such as Aven Mindcensor or Drannith Magistrate.

The Simic player popped off, spitting out loads of creatures with loads of +1/+1 counters, and swung out at me. I took 38 square on the jaw, dropped to 2. All I had in play was a Repercussion and a Glorybringer.

On my turn, I cast Insult, then a Dualcaster Mage on the Insult, then attacked with my Glorybringer and exerted. Glorybringer dealt 4 to one of the Simic player's creatures, which doubles to 8 then doubles to 16 - then Repercussion triggered, and shot the player for 16, which doubled to 32, which doubled to 64.

And that's how I killed someone from 40 with Glorybringer's attack trigger, while also 16'ing another player with the Glorybringer itself.

Let's just say my commander, Neheb, the Eternal, lived up to his flavor text.

This is what glory looks like.

Mana Geyser can go infinite with reiterate: If you can cast Reiterate with buyback in response to a Mana Geyser that will produce 7 or more mana, you can cast infinite Reiterates to get infinite storm and infinite mana.

Another infinite could be Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Zealous Conscripts.

Dualcaster Mage and Twinflame/Heat Shimmer go infinite

Lastly, Experimental Frenzy, Sensei's Divining Top and Ugin, the Ineffable let you draw your whole deck

Where is your card draw? All I see are 3 wheels and outpost siege. Anvil, burning inquiry don't count IMO because they don't net you cards. I really like this chaos build. I had something similar (although not as compact/good) about a year or so back, but my playgroup hates chaos so they targeted me. So I made mine a semi-competitive build. If you added more card draw in the form of....(there are other ideas, just lmk if ur interested in them)

Endless Atlas - Card draw

Tome of Legends - I have a "good" feeling about this ;)

Ignite the Future - Better in more serious builds, but is still nice

Light Up the Stage - Similar to above, this card is probably better suited to your deck, although I run both since I'm card draw hungry in mono red


No Strip Mine instead of field? Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle instead of a mountain?

Would love to hear your thoughts on my semi-competitive build
