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

Infinite Reflection doesn't go infinite with any of the indicated cards as far as I can tell (doesn't affect tokens).

Wake Thrasher gets infinite power with Tidewater Minion and Aphetto Alchemist, (while all the cards are listed, the combo isn't)

Filigree Sages makes infinite mana with Prismatic Geoscope

Worldgorger Dragon makes infinite mana with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker (again cards are there combo isn't)

Seedcradle Witch makes infinite mana with Bloom Tender

Palinchron makes infinite mana with Mana Flare and Heartbeat of Spring

Aetherwind Basker makes infinite energy and combat steps with Lightning Runner

Reality Spasm makes infinite mana with Meletis Charlatan, Echo Mage, Reiterate, Mischievous Quanar and probably a bunch of other cards I can't remember.

What do you think of Vizier of Many Faces? its great in other blue gpg decks as it can come back as another Lightning Runner or Combat Celebrant or anything else you need.

Hey man! You going to update this deck? I saw that you saved my pummeler deck, so hopefully you can get ideas from that. Lightning Runner, Maulfist Doorbuster, and Architect of the Untamed seem too slow for this deck. I do like the Commencement of Festivities for how aggro this meta is with decks like mono red and Mardu vehicles dominating the format.Larger Than Life, Voltaic Brawler, and Servant of the Conduit need to go in the deck. I'm aware you already have a brawler, but it is so good in the deck it needs at least 3 copies.

I tried this deck out and its fantastic. its true that Combat Celebrant can only exert once per turn but thats really all you should need if you can get multiple out.

I changed up your version to -1Gate to the Afterlife, -4 Fanatical Firebrand, -4 Bomat Courier, -1 Trophy Mage, +1 Combat Celebrant, +2 Lightning Runner, +3 Warkite Marauder, +2 Siren Stormtamer, and +2 Bloodrage Brawler.

The storm tamers help with cards like Vraska's Contempt and other removal while also fueling the graveyard. The extra Celebrant and extra Runners give more combat turns if necessary. Plus having all 4 runners on the field is infinite combat. The warkite helps with powering down their biggest blocker and with extra combat turns that powers down even more blockers.

Great deck!

I hoenstly really like this deck. I had tried making this during Awtherrevolt and I just couldnt make it work. I love Lightning Runner, I love the energy mechanic, I love God-Pharaoh's Gift and Izzet is my favorite color combo. 1000% making this deck and taking it to the next FNM. +1 from me.

Basically using Champion of Rhonas with Lightning Runner and Combat Celebrant to drip multiple big creatures for free.

So Champion of Rhonas lets you play big creatures without paying there mana cost and the other lets you have an additional combat phase? I cant knock it, I've based a few decks around concepts like this. They are fun but its not always the most reliable win mechanic.

Glad to see Lightning Runner get some love. Also, Norin the Gary is fantastic.
