Masterman4848 on Infinite Counter Combo (Win Turn 3-4)

LordGrizz For a really long time I considered splashing in the just for that extra Melira piece, since we have all the sac outlets we need and the perfect persist creatures but fall short in the key. And has a lot of sweet candidates for this combo like Cartel Aristocrat but in trial and error I found reorganizing the land just for the one extra only slowed down the rest of the setup and was generally harder to get rolling. I've become convinced that the splash for this only fits in a format like commander where the cards have the space to fill, as all the other pieces for our goal fit really snug in .

I really appreciate the feed back man and you can check out just about every card I have found to fit into this combo theme in my incomplete EDH deck - Counter Combos in Commander, you can do some sick stuff with Melira and Phyrexian Unlife with Soul Conduit or Repay in Kind. And you would be amazed at how hard it is to find a commander since you need the to even play Murderous Redcap.

Hybridtheory13 I've absolutely considered either switching out Kitchen Finks for Murderous Redcap or atleast sideboarding him. Right now, the deck is 5-0 in all games I've played with it, but I fear that if I allocate too many slots to creatures my core enchantment combos and prison pieces will be harder to get to. Like I said, I might just sideboard or switch out 1x or both Finks for a redcap. Thanks for the suggestion. :-)

Well Necrotic Ooze seems like it could help with your overall play style, as it can take advantage of a lot of your creature's abilities while in they in the Graveyard.
As for combos, what about Grimgrin, Corpse-Born/Blasting Station + Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Deathbringer Thoctar/Murderous Redcap for infinite damage

Anyway, I feel like you should focus more on taking advantage of Marchesa, the Black Rose's strengths with the +1/+1 Counters with abilities like Undying. Please let me know if you want a look over, besides from that looks like a really cool deck!!!

True. If you combine Goblin Bombardment, Solemnity, and any undying creature (Young Wolf Is a classic) the combo will function. Murderous Redcap is just most common because it works with any repeatable sac outlet.

Thanks ACDAMAN! The combo is Murderous Redcap + Solemnity + Goblin Bombardment for infinite damage. There are other ways to do it (like with Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit instead of solemnity).

hmm.. yeah I can understand your first point. With an eye on delerium, think about highering your chanse for it. May be cutting all or some Elixir of Immortality you will never have them in your grave AND they shuffel it in. You could cut 1 to 3 Murderous Redcap to. Instead of them adding something wich gives you another card-type, Spellskite and/or Courser of Kruphix

When Murderous Redcap enter the battlefield with persit and he gets a -1/-1 counter on him then Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit trigger with bolster1 and i put the counter on Murderous Redcap does his -1/-1 counter disapear ?

Leeco, you are right, i do think Worldgorger Dragon needs to make it in, but i think there are better targets than Gonti, as he seems rather lack-luster without the combo. In the deck, Worldgorger already works with Inferno Titan, but i do think i need another target, maybe like Anathemancer or Murderous Redcap
