sonnet666 on Should WotC Allow All PW ...

For people on the "ban Doubling Season" hype train here. Here are all the commanders that go infinite with a single card:

Ad that's not even counting all the cards that are essentially a 1 card combo in and of themselves, like:

Or all the commanders who win the game automatically if you can get a simple infinite mana combo off, which are too many to list here.

My point is that Commander is already super broken on a competitive level because the RC doesn't care about banning competitive cards. Having Doubling Season with PW commanders doesn't even come close to the level of broken that's already possible in EDH, and it would be stupid to ban it. (Especially since it's a lot harder to cheat out a 5 mana enchantment than a lot of the combos I listed above.)

On another note, I think Nissa, Vital Force would make a super awesome Gaea's Cradle commander.

With Animar, Soul of Elements already at four counters, in order to generate an infinite mana/counters/turns combo with only creatures you would need Palinchron + Shapers of Nature + Sage of Hours with at least four separate sources of and one source of among any number of lands that can generate at least seven total mana. Without a response, you now have infinite mana, counters and turns generated only by creatures and with no other requirements. You can also draw your entire library.

Sage of Hours plus Master Biomancer plus a way to get biomasnser's power to 5 like Forgotten Ancient, plus a way to return sage to your hand each turn. Requires 4 creatures, but doable.

My guess is somehow pumping Sage of Hours over and over. Although in Rivals there's a new extra turn creature that can go infinite with a repeatable tutor.

So far as I'm aware, Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is the only creature spell that gives you an unconditional extra turn, and it's banned in EDH. If you're playing without bans, then yeah you could run Emmy alongside something like Temur Sabertooth you could go infinite turns.

Other creatures legal in Animar that give you extra turns:

Lighthouse Chronologist can't really go infinite as it'll never trigger on your turn.

Sage of Hours would need non-creature spells to target it, as etb effects are not spells.

Timestream Navigator tucks itself. Good luck.

Wanderwine Prophets would require an endless supply of merfolk sacs to go infinite.

Wormfang Manta eats its own extra turn when you play/bounce it, unless you somehow have a Stifle effect every turn. Possible with something like Isochron Scepter, but that's a non-creature.
