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

5 days ago

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.

There seems to be a lot of more playable cards, compared to your current list, that you're missing.

I would normally assume that's due to playing with cards already in your collection, but since you have 4x Prismatic Vista , I'm not sure.

Just in case:

Wall of Omens , Kitchen Finks , Restoration Angel , Flickerwisp .

They're not spirits, but Flickerwisp , Restoration Angel , and Eldrazi Displacer are powerful flicker effects in modern. Also consider Fiend Hunter . Just some cards to keep in mind, even though they're not spirits.

Renegade Tactics -> Draw but it's a sorcery and that really hampers it

Seize the Day -> Cute, but I probably don't win with single creature combat

Flickerwisp -> Too much blink, and not enough blink targets

Gilded Lotus -> A bit expensive and lots of my spells are 1 mana, not 3

Unwinding Clock -> only useful with a handful of mana rocks


Mountain and Plains -> what was I thinking with only 33 lands. It's a cheap deck, but still...

Phalanx Leader , Vanguard of Brimaz , and Akroan Crusader -> token makers and token buffers

my recommendations: maybe less 4cmc cards -- when are you not just slamming brago on turn 4? and im not super impressed by the legendary artifact enchantments in this list. also, no Flickerwisp ? + Reality Acid

with all the mana brago can make, id advocate for more draw / filtering. for me, i never really feel bad drawing a Serum Visions or Brainstorm . dont you own an Enlightened Tutor ? speaking of mana, other two-drop mana rocks seems good to ramp into 4 mana: definitely Mind Stone but Fellwar Stone / Star Compass could do the trick, too

AEthermage's Touch Forbidding Spirit

Like mentioned earlier, Emrakul has protection from spells but not from abilities. Flickerwisp , Aether Spellbomb , Oblivion Ring , Detention Sphere , Deputy of Detention , Reflector Mage and a lot more have triggered abilities. The disruptive ability is on the stack after the spell is cast. Emrakul is not save from these. We are playing a rather slow game with this deck so it's not unlikely that our opponent sacrifices six permanents to Emrakul and still has enough resources to cast one of these disruptive effects. In fact it happend a lot to me in games against Death and Taxes ( Flickerwisp , Eldrazi Displacer at instant speed before attacking -> no annilator trigger) and Humans ( Reflector Mage ).

Also Polymorph puts Emrakul onto the battlefield so you don't cast it and don't get the extra turn.

Sure Emrakul is the stronger choise with the annilator ability but objectively Progenitus has more protection and evasion and is a saver pick for a 2 turn clock.

This said I still play with Emrakul at the moment.
