Priest of Gix Discussion

I assume that you can just replace Overeager Apprentice with Priest of Gix right off the bat. And what is your opinion of Bog Witch?

Ashnod's Altar, Soldevi Digger and Priest of Gix, Priest of Urabrask or any token producer. Sacrifice one of the priests to Ashnod's Altar. Put it from the top of your graveyard on the bottom of your library with Soldevi Digger using the mana Altar gave you. Use Grenzo to put the priest back on the field. Get 3 mana. Sacrifice it for 2 mana. Put it on the bottom of your library with Digger. You still have 3 mana. Use 2 mana for Grenzo to put the priest back on the field. Repeat steps for infinite mana. Anything that makes at least one token can also go infinite with this, as you can sacc the tokens to the altar along with the producer. With 2 tokens, you can get infinite mana.

Soldevi Digger and Workhorse - Remove 4 counters from Workhorse, killing Workhorse and getting 4 mana. Put Workhorse on the bottom of your library with Digger. Throw it back out with Grenzo. Repeat steps. With Ashnod's Altar, you can also make infinite mana by removing 3 counters from Workhorse, then saccing it. You then have 5 mana total. Use 4 mana to throw Workhorse back out with Digger and Grenzo and you'll have 1 mana left, so just repeat steps for infinite mana.

thegigibeast, I mean, I don't see anything wrong with adding an infinite mana gameplan to Grenzo, but the question is more: How is it better than Doomsday? Y'know?

Part of the appeal of Doomsday Grenzo is that it's super difficult to interact with once Doomsday resolves, since you're only activating abilities after that.

Compare that with Worldgorger combo where it's so fragile a Swords to Plowshares sets you back to having no permanents. For Grenzo at least, it might be better to go with some "safer" infinite mana combos, especially since Grenzo doesn't need mana of any color the way Lyzolda does. Stuff like: Basalt+Rings combo, Nooze+Palladium Myr+Pili-Pala, Rings+Voltaic Key, ... Yeah, there aren't a lot of infinite mana combos in Black/Red, are there?

That said, I don't think they're incompatible, since infinite activations of Grenzo make a lot of plays that already use the cards in the Doomsday pile. For example:

Yawgmoth's Will-->Lotus Petal-->Dark Ritual-->Doomsday--> the usual stack.

  • Or if you don't have access to Doomsday:

Yawgmoth's Will-->Reito Lantern--> the usual stack.

  • Or if you don't have access to Kiki+Conscripts:

Yawgmoth's Will--> infinite Walking Ballista

  • If you get an infinite combo before casting Grenzo you can also put infinite counters on him, and just get every creature out of your deck.

Even still though, infinite mana combos are always going to be 2 to 3 cards, while Doomsday is a single card. This gives Doomsday a much lower threshold of necessary tutors and set-up, and means that Doomsday should probably remain plan A for the deck.

Wheres Burning-Tree Emissary? I feel this deck could also use another 1 drop mana dork or you can go the routes of

Other creatures that generate mana when ETB: Akki Rockspeaker, Priest of Gix, Priest of Urabrask, Coal Stoker, Hidden Herbalists or Mardu Warshrieker.

or other tinderwall creatures: Blood Pet, Generator Servant, Nest Invader, Pawn of Ulamog, Skirk Prospector, or Blisterpod to help generate mana.

I would highly recommend taking out Risen Executioner. I know that he can be pulled out from the graveyard, but he costs extra per zombie in your graveyard. That is kind of counterintuitive because you want those other zombies in there.

That's just my two cents though!

If you do decide to do that, I would recommend putting in Grave Titan, Wurmcoil Engine, and/or Priest of Gix. I also think you should definitely include Nim Deathmantle.

Ashnod's Altar + Nim Deathmantle + Grave Titan / Wurmcoil Engine / Priest of Gix = Infinite either infinitely colorless mana and 3/3 zombies; infinite colorless mana and 3/3 deathtouch/lifelink wurms; and/or infinite black mana respectively.

I'm not sure the mana is right here...

CARD: MANA POOL

Simian Spirit Guide: R,

Darkwater Catacombs: UB,

Dark Ritual: UBBB,

Priest of Gix: UBBB,

Culling the Weak: UBBBBBB,

Laboratory Maniac: BBBB,

Doomsday: B,

...and now you don't have enough to cast Plunge into Darkness.

In that case, what do you think of Scuttling Doom Engine , Anvil of Bogardan , Necromancy , Culling the Weak , maybe even a Blood Pet , Hecatomb , Priest of Gix , Laquatus's Champion , Silent Arbiter , always thought Tortured Existence was a cool card, but I'm not sure if it'd make sense in this deck, something to consider at least.

Firebones675 on balthor the defiler of infinite combos budget

You're a little light on draw power. Read the Bones or Bitter Revelation could be worth including.

At present i don't see too many ways of generating infinite mana. I see the Necrotic Ooze/Palladium Myr/Pili-Pala one but that's it

If you add Decaying Soil, it goes infinite with Priest of Gix+ Ashnod's Altar

When I think of generals for monoblack combo decks Mikaeus, the Unhallowed comes to mind. (Mikaeus, the Unhallowed+Triskelion deals infinite damag by removing its last counter to deal 1 damage to itself which brings it back with more counters). Also mikaeus+ any creature with persist like Puppeteer Clique+ any free sac outlet like Altar of Dementia gives infinite triggers as the two counters cancel eachother out. Workhorse also provides infinite mana with mikeus

Blasting Station is another free sac outlet in such a combo as each time the loop is performed the creature enters from the graveyard untapping the station.

Provided you have 7 swamps in play Staff of Domination gives infinite mana and draws your entire deck with the help of the Magus of the Coffers you already have
