Exsanguinate Discussion

If you create infinite mana with woodfall primus and phyrexian altar you can end the game with a big Exsanguinate. Also Crystalline Crawler and Workhorse can make a ton of mana. Mindless Automaton can also make you draw a lot of cards.

Im sorry!

Debt to the Deathless is already in the list, I didnt see that (again, sorry!)

But I feel like Exsanguinate still has a place here.

What about as an alternate wincon, use Debt to the Deathless and Exsanguinate? I will admit, when I first saw these, I was sceptical, and they are situational. But if you have Crypt Ghast down with Urborg and Cabal Coffers down, you can generate near infinite mana. If your opponent is running mana doublers, it just put a smile on your face when you topdeck Debt to the Deathless :)

Again, just a suggestion.

Flagellum on The Second Plague: The Gitrog Monster

Sorry, somehow I managed to take this list off private. It's still being brewed but it is indeed more budget, hence no Crucible of Worlds, Bazaar of Baghdad, Lion's Eye Diamond and other better lands.

It's pretty much straight up infinite mana Exsanguinate combo using the Frog + Skirge Familiar + Discard outlet and/or Dakmor Salvage/dredge. However, there are two back up plans should those pieces get exiled along with Riftsweeper. Those being: Necrotic Ooze with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord/Devoted Druid/Quillspike in the GY (or battlefield) and infinite mana with Geth's Verdict in a 3 card library (to make it faster).

I will be updating the description once I'm happy with it. I recently added more mana dorks in lieu of fluff like Rampaging Baloths, Avenger of Zendikar, Worm Harvest. I found that if I focused more on the combo aspect that those sorts of things aren't needed. It also lowered the curve quite nicely.

Pure flavor cards Vampiric Embrace and Exsanguinate. A win con that you can slam for fun True Conviction.

I'm a bit wary of running Piranha Marsh or Shivan Gorge since I don't have great ways to tutor for them. It could be helpful for going off using only Entomb without having to set up a chain using Rune-Scarred Demon.

Opted for Dimir Machinations over Shred Memory since it gets me Buried Alive (which is usually the tutor target) and Necromancy.

Added Imperial Seal and Grim Tutor.

Swapped Exsanguinate out for Aurelia's Fury since I can use it as a silence when going for the Kaalia combo plan instead of the Worldgorger plan.

Honestly, a 10-mana win-con in a mono-color deck isn't that bad. Tainted Remedy would be good if you could force life gain, but without white I can't think of anything. You already have the Monolith, so including that with Rings of Brighthearth and Exsanguinate is an infinite combo too. Ashnod's Altar and Nim Deathmantle infinite combo with tons of things. Hope this helps!

Hi elpollo66!

I do indeed have a budget list Budget Sidisi ANF.

However, the deck really needs those expensive rocks or you won't be able to generate enough mana on the combo turn. This is about as budget as I can make it. Brainspoil isn't totally needed in the budget list - more rocks or Reanimate is fine.

The two main kills in the deck are Aetherflux Reservoir and Rings of Brighthearth + Basalt Monolith + Exsanguinate. You can also exsanguinate for a large finite amount using Skirge Familiar. Aetherflux Reservoir is very easy to win with, hence the name ANF (ad nauseam fishbowl). You can storm a bit to build up mana then land the fishbowl and after a few more spells, will kill you opponent.

Formula to calculate storm needed to kill with fishbowl in a full 4 man pod:

Number of spells to cast after casting fishbowl = ceiling(sqrt(300 - 2x(your current life total) + (current storm count)^2)) - (current storm count)

Ceiling referring to round up, and sqrt referring to square root. Current storm count is your storm count including casting fishbowl. The 300 number assumes you only have to fire the laser 3 times to kill the pod, but if you need more its just 2x50x(number of activations required to kill the table). So for example, if you are at 5 life after ad nauseam, and you have 10 storm including casting fishbowl, you need 10 more spells to kill the table, which gains you 155 life and puts you at 160 life total.

Lastly, the reason we use exsanguinate and not walking ballista is because walking ballista requires true infinite mana to kill the table. Exsanguinate can kill with large finite amounts. And sometimes you need to exsanguinate for a finite amount before ad nausing, or exsanguinate for a finite amount before yawg will+ad naus again.
