If by chance you're looking for a win-condition that doesn't use the graveyard or artifacts I'd recommend: Felidar Guardian + Flameshadow Conjuring . Cast Flameshadow first, then Felidar, always order ETB triggers so that Felidar's resolves first then Flameshadow. Felidar blinks any red source be it a Mountain , Badlands , or Commander's Sphere which effectively untaps it to pay for Flameshadow's ETB. This creates a hasty token for free that won't trigger Flameshadow again, so you'll always have the token Felidar blink the original Felidar which continues the cycle until you have infinite hasty cats to attack with. I consider this combo more durable than the Splinter Twin variant and easier on the mana base than the Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker variant. If someone removes the cat before you can go infinite you can always reset the combo with Animate Dead , Dance of the Dead , or Necromancy reanimating the cat. This is a pretty easy combo to win with when your opponents are hiding behind their Planar Void 's and Stony Silence 's thinking they're safe.

Sir_Flash and Spirits, Also was curious why Felidar Guardian isn't in consideration, it combos with kiki so easily?

Felidar Guardian and Flameshadow Conjuring Blink a red land w/ felidar, then use the mana from it to make a copy. The copy enters, blinking the felidar. Blink a red land with felidar, make a copy. Rinse and repeat.

DrLama on MagicalHacker - List of All 2-Card Infinite Combos

one-card combo:
Recruiter of the Guard / Imperial Recruiter
- cast whichever recruiter, search up Spellseeker into Withdraw .
- Bounce Spellseeker and Recruiter, recast both, search up Chain of Vapor and Trophy Mage .
- Cast Trophy Mage into Basalt Monolith .
- Cast Chain of Vapor on Trophy Mage and Recruiter, recast Trophy Mage into Rings of Brighthearth .
- Rings of Brighthearth + Basalt Monolith makes infinite mana, then recast Recruiter (for 1 colored mana) into Walking Ballista to kill.

That costs 30 mana, with 8 slots -- If you can use white cards, you can replace Withdraw with Momentary Blink to save 3 mana (most of flashback cost paid with infinite colorless mana), or replace Withdraw with Ephemerate to save 7 mana (at the cost of a turn), or replace both Withdraw and Chain of Vapor with Ephemerate and Momentary Blink to save 9 mana (21 mana instead of 30) if Chain of Vapor isn't already generating 2+ mana with fast-mana artifacts ( Mana Vault and such). Other replacements for Withdraw include Saving Grasp , Selective Snare , Scapegoat . Only Scapegoat saves mana, just 1 -- use Chain first, then Scapegoat, saccing Spellseeker. But that's worse than Chain then Momentary Blink.

I'm sure there's a way to do this without Spellseeker, going Recruiter into Mistmeadow Witch , or Recruiter into Recruiter into Planar Guide , possibly using cards like Brago, King Eternal , Felidar Guardian / Flickerwisp , but I haven't worked those out yet. Maybe it's possible without blue.

Kjartan I appreciate the advice, but I dont think some of those function any better in the deck at all. Restoration Angel has flash and flying, but cant go infinite with itself as Felidar Guardian can. Flickerwisp flickers rather than blinks, while the rest of the deck is blink. Might be personal taste to prefer the instant return honestly, Haha, I can see some benefits though. Kitchen Finks for lifegain only I've got Ajani's Welcome , otherwise I tend to go for lifegain in conjunction with something. Wall of Omens might be good here though. I'll have to do some tweaking to check how I like it here soon. Again, I do appreciate the advice though. Always helps to consider more options.

BMHKain on Aminatou's ETB Matrix Killer (Need ...

1 month ago

Well, now that this Forum is online & fully operational, I can finally do, well... this.

This deck is made w/ many infinite combos in mind:

Liliana Vess + Aminatou, the Fateshifter + Felidar Guardian + Oath of Teferi = Infinite Tutors.

Aminatou + Reality Acid = I exile everything you have.

Eldrazi Displacer + any ETB creature effect = (Depends on the effect) (Add Panharmonicon = x2.)

Archaeomancer & Hanna, Ship's Navigator = "What you destroy, I'll show you how to rebuild it; even on a submolecular level; you damned elves!"

Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth

This could go on for so long, but my first question is obvious;

  1. Does the Static Abilities of Ashiok, Dream Render & Teferi, Time Raveler interract?

  2. This is practically an ETB based deck; but are there other things worth cutting or replacing? & NO. I'm not replacing Echo of Eons w/ Timetwister ; buying that is like forcing a company you work with to BANKRUPTCY.

  3. What is the quintessential Signature Spell for ETB effects in Esper?

  4. I'm really missing out on a lot of things; card draw most notably. That said; I ask again, what would you replace from the 58?

I could go on about this, but this should suffice for now. Thanks for the help, if any, & I'll be working on other things now... :)

Spirits on Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

Hi SynergyBuild,

Thanks, that's what I'm going for, kind of. Right now though I have Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder which does a similar task with only 2 cards (no cats SpikeFeeder + Sunbond could do it too). I'm trying to find a combo that wins (with "some" cat components similar to what you mentioned), but having infinite life in commander often doesn't matter. Need an enabler like an Aetherflux Reservoir or Felidar Sovereign though to make it useful. Or some way to spend life for mana?

Felidar Guardian + Restoration Angel + Aura Shards is also nice though.

Something like Cryptolith Rite + Leonin Battlemage + Oketra's Monument + Whitemane Lion | Infinite 1/1 Warrior Tokens (without haste yuck!). Something that can win but much less janky and not so many pieces. Some way to output a win directly.

The Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder makes the Archangel of Thune or any other creature I control as big as I want with +1 counters.

Spirits Do you want a cat-only combo, or a general cat combo.

Felidar Guardian + Restoration Angel + Healer of the Pride is infinite life, but it requires an angel, albeit a good angel, but still an angel.
