I second Reaxetion's idea about talking about the evolution of colorless cards. I feel like in some ways they downgraded the power of colorless cards because they don't have a color restriction (e.g cards like Gauntlet of Power vs. Gauntlet of Might), but some cards actually got upgraded into strictly better versions (Celestial Prism vs. Prophetic Prism)

Iizuka the Ruthless + Oathkeeper, Takeno's Daisho + Runed Stalactite + Mountain + Genju of the Spires + Heartstone + Thousand-Year Elixir + Paradox Engine + 4 mana doublers below = Infinite Combo.

And all of these mana doublers will be needed to go infinite: Extraplanar Lens, Gauntlet of Power, Gauntlet of Might, Caged Sun, Mana Flare, and Chaos Moon. Could do a Soulbright Flamekin as well, but I don't know if the math works out.

  • Main Phase 1:
  • Iizuka the Ruthless, Oathkeeper, Takeno's Daisho, Runed Stalactite, an Mountain, Heartstone, Thousand-Year Elixir, and Paradox Engine are all out on board. Genju of the Spires in hand.
    Mountain for (5).
    → Cast Genju of the Spires on the Mountain. Down to (4).
    → In response to casting Genju of the Spires, TRIGGERED abilities layer with timestamps. Paradox Engine being the only one. Paradox Engine untaps all nonland permanents.
    Genju of the Spires resolves.
    → Activate Genju of the Spires's ability animating the enchanted Mountain. Down to (2).
    → Activate Thousand-Year Elixir's ability, the enchanted, animated Mountain spirit. Down to (1).
    the enchanted, animated Mountain spirit for (5). End up with (6).
    → Attach Oathkeeper, Takeno's Daisho and Runed Stalactite to the enchanted, animated Mountain spirit. Down to (2).
    → Sacrifice the enchanted, well-armed, animated Mountain changeling to Iizuka the Ruthless. Down to (0).
    → In in response to the enchanted, well-armed, animated Mountain changeling dying, TRIGGERED abilities layer with timestamps. Oathkeeper, Takeno's Daisho first, then Genju of the Spires. Genju of the Spires resolves first, returning to hand. Then Oathkeeper, Takeno's Daisho resolves returning the precious Mountain back to play .
    Iizuka the Ruthless's activated ability then resolves with all Samurai gaining double strike until end of turn.
    → Repeat.

    Add additional mana doublers to get infinite mana. Add a Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle with 5 other Mountains in play to insta-win. Temple Bell to deck yourself or opponents.

    EDIT: Felt like something was fishy. Figured out that Oathkeeper, Takeno's Daisho checks if it is a Samurai in the graveyard, not when it dies. I'm used to Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker. Apologies. And even a Ashes of the Fallen doesn't fix this. (Oathkeepers second ability checks whether the cards creature type is Samurai, not whether the creature was a Samurai when it left the battlefield.)

    EDIT 2: I did all the work and math for nothing so I'm not going to do it again, but I imagine you could replace Genju of the Spires, Runed Stalactite and the Mountain in the combo with Soulbright Flamekin, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, and Ashes of the Fallen to make it work. THAT WOULD BE EPIC.

    LTmiller: No problem! I took care of it.

    So, here are my opinions on all four cards you're looking at getting:

    Imperial Recruiter: Fetches all of our ultilty creatures with power 2 or less, most notably Goblin Welder, Squee, Goblin Nabob, and Metalworker. Welder and Squee are more important, in my opinion, and they're both Goblins, so you can use Goblin Matron as a replacement for now.

    Bazaar of Baghdad: An amazing card that helps us dig and pitch cards even faster, and isn't a spell so it can't be countered. I don't necessarily think it's a staple for the deck, but is definitely a good addition if you can get a hold of one at a decent price. Geier Reach Sanitarium makes a good budget replacement, but it isn't nearly as powerful.

    Gauntlet of Might: While having the extra mana is nice, with the amount of rocks we run, it isn't really necessary to have in the deck. I've been contemplating removing it myself, especially once AER releases.

    Mishra's Workshop: Beings we are essentially an artifact deck that splashes red, this land is extremely bonkers in the deck. This and Metalworker on turn 1 is nuts! There really isn't a good enough replacement for what this land provides.

    So, if it were me and I had to choose, Workshop all of the way.

    Guerte If I get the workshop, I wouldn't be getting anything else. lol. If I get the Bazaar of Baghdad I might get the Gauntlet of Might... Does that put it into perspective for ya brotha man? Like, I'd like to do less than $1000.
