Puppeteer Clique

Creature — Faerie Wizard


When Puppeteer Clique enters the battlefield, put target creature card from an opponent's graveyard onto the battlefield under your control. It gains haste. At the beginning of your next end step, exile it.

Persist (When this creature dies, if it had no -1/-1 counters on it, return it to the battlefield under its owner's control with a -1/-1 counter on it.)

Puppeteer Clique because it's stolen creatures trigger Kothophed from your own battlefield.Necromancy, Animate Dead and Reanimate for the same reasons.Strands of Night for it's own usefulness in mono black.Swap them for anything that returns things to your hand.

Also it should have a lot more Kobolds if it wants to be good.

Hi all, I'm doing some finishing touches on my Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim deck Ayli reflects, Boon or Wound? and I'm curious if I have forgotten any good combos with the new Solemnity?

I have the following in the deck so far: Dark Depths, Lost Auramancers , Phyrexian Unlife, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Celestial Convergence.

Also two cumulative upkeep cards: Glacial Chasm and Sustaining Spirit .

I know I could possibly add Puppeteer Clique but it's only great depending on opponents deck so I'm mulling it over. Are there any cards I may have missed in orzhov that would also work with Solemnity here? Thanks!

Here are a few cards you could consider for this deck Deathbringer Thoctar, Mindless Automaton, Triskelion, Walking Ballista, Cauldron of Souls, Puppeteer Clique, and Murderous Redcap.

All of these cards synergize very well with either your commander or Mikaeus, the Unhallowed.

If I were playing a different Grixis (UBR) Commander, I'd probably run counterspells. The reason I don't is because I play less of a Control build and more towards a proactive plan of looping ETBs and going Infinite. So like you said, I have my spot removal and boardwipes (That also kill all creatures except my own), but I'm mostly focused on my own gameplan.

Cockatrice is a Free Program that many people, myself included, use to test Decks before purchasing IRL. The entire Magic Card database is included, so you can build any Deck for any format and test it against other people. You can even download the MTGO (.dec) file from Tappedout and put it into your Cockatrice Folder to Import a full Decklist like mine. The only learning curve is knowing some of the etiquette and all the hotkey shortcuts since the program is entirely manual.

Generally when someone says the phrase "Combo Off", they're referring to an Infinite Combo that wins the game. It's not always Infinite, but it usually is. I suppose you could refer to the looping of creatures as a Combo, but I usually refer to it as an Engine. An Engine is when you have an output that's generally greater than the input. So you can use something like Marchesa's ability and a free Sac Outlet like Goblin Bombardment to generate free ETBs. The input is 0 while the output is a free ETB.

The Infinite Combo doesn't deal with Marchesa at all. She's generally there to enable a few non-infinite loops and to protect your Combo pieces that have +1/+1 counters on them. The Infinite Combo in my Deck is Glen Elendra Archmage (Persist Wizard) or Puppeteer Clique (Persist Wizard) together with Sage of Fables, Metallic Mimic (On Wizard), or Mikaeus, the Unhallowed to "reset" the -1/-1 counter of Persist. This allows them to infinitely die to a sac outlet like Goblin Bombardment which would turn into an Infinite ping (Infinite damage). It's worth nothing that River Kelpie can go Infinite with Metallic Mimic on Beast, but the Draw from Kelpie is not a may. You have to draw a Card every time it dies. If you don't have enough Cards in your Library, you'll deck yourself before you kill everyone.

I haven't tried Razaketh yet, but I'm assuming that it'll allow me to Tutor for my Infinite Combo the turn that I play it. If I used Sneak Attack to get him in, I could probably win on the spot. If not, then I'm guaranteed to win next turn. You've got Bearer correct though: He destroys everyone's Lands and permanents, generally leaving you with whichever creatures had +1/+1 counters on them to finish the game off. You usually want to get a +1/+1 counter on Bearer since a 10/10 is really useful for finishing the game quickly so people can't rebuild.

if you're looking for creatures that won't ever die while Mikaeus is out, here is a list.



Wingrattle Scarecrow

Lingering Tormentor


Plague Belcher


Baleful Ammit

Puppeteer Clique

Cinderhaze Wretch

Carnifex Demon

Crystalline Crawler (This card can also give you infinite mana)

Now you just need sac outlets.

Also, Black Market for mana and Noosegraf Mob might be helpful. (When the mob runs out out of counters it will come back with undying)

Anything with persist infinite combos with your commander and a sac outlet. My personal favorite to run is Puppeteer Clique.

Like the deck! I saw the spoiler on this, and I was super pumped about an EDH deck, as well. Something I noticed about The Scorpion God is that even if it's a centerpiece to the deck, you probably don't need the hexproof or shroud from the shoes. You can have it go to your graveyard, instead of command zone, and you can cast it from your hand for 5. If your library is exiled, you have to pay commander tax, but that's the only scenario, so it's really not that bad if it dies. You've got a ton of card draw, and you'll probably kill Anger with your own cards the turn or two after it comes down, so I'd replace both Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots with Anger. I haven't put together a decklist, but some of my considerations I didn't see here are Everlasting Torment, Cauldron of Souls, Grief Tyrant, Harbinger of Night, Hateflayer, Puppeteer Clique, Sickle Ripper, Soul Snuffers, Soul-Scar Mage, Thunderblust, Tourach's Chant, Throne of Geth, Volt Charge, Archfiend of Ifnir, Fang Skulkin, Fevered Convulsions, Rattleblaze Scarecrow, and Serrated Biskelion.

That's true, but I don't have too many sac outlets. And I don't want Puppeteer Clique to determine when I play a Board Wipe.

I think that something like Thalakos Deceiver works much better for my personal deck.
