IAmTheWraith on Multifarious Infinite Combos

DangoDaikazoku: On things that can disrupt the Necrotic Ooze+Phyrexian Devourer+Walking Ballista/Triskelion, as far as I know the only thing that can disrupt this combo would be any of the 9 Split-Second cards that do one of these things:

  1. Kill or Steal Necrotic Ooze

  2. Get rid of Phyrexian Devourer

  3. Angel's Grace

  4. Bouncing Necrotic Ooze to your hand

  5. Turn Necrotic Ooze into a doughnut with Sudden Spoiling, Trickbind.

But other than that you should be good unless I missed something. In response to anything else you can just keep activating the ability and holding priority until the table is dead.

Or, you can just let that Stifle resolve and keep going.

Some cards you can consider to making it more flavorful and threatening as well.

Hope that helps!

Hmm with the balance of the deck and going into a more mid-range build. I'll advise against going into stax as it would dilute the deck, imo I would add in more interaction and be reactive than proactive. There are a lot of efficient costed spells since you are running 5c, Nature's Claim, Shadow of Doubt, Dispel/Spell Pierce, Sudden Spoiling, etc. (not including well known ones ex. Mana Drain and it's ilk)

Unless you are talking about asymmetrical stax like Stranglehold than I would include some of those pieces because...they are a pain in the ass to deal with like holy hell...

Hey welcome to T/O!

For most Geth deck, they focus a lot on mana acceleration to be able to abuse his ability. Some cards that might be helpful to you can be:

Nirkana Revenant, Extraplanar Lens, Bubbling Muck, Cabal Ritual, Gauntlet of Power, Cabal Coffers, Cabal Stronghold, Jet Medallion

Also I would recommend adding in some more interaction/draw spells like:

Dismember, Vendetta, Sudden Spoiling, Slaughter Pact, Vona's Hunger, Mindblade Render, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood

Hope that helps!

You can check out my mono-black deck as well to gain some insight!

Ragnar0k on Tishana - Taijitu

Hey! I found your list on r/cEDH and I really enjoy what I'm seeing so far, but I've got a few things you may want to consider.

Assuming you are abusing Food Chain by getting infinite colored mana with Misthollow Griffin or Eternal Scourge, infinitely exiling and casting Tishana to draw deck, and at some point playing Labman in there to win, you are going to need a Cavern of Souls to guarantee it. I only say this because if someone counters Tishana or Labman you are kind of SOL.

Another interaction to consider is that of Sudden Spoiling with Labman. If someone casts it with your winning draw trigger on the stack, you are screwed.

If possible I would make the following switches:

Simic Signet >> Mox Diamond - Strictly better Dissipate/Void Shatter >> Delay - Exile pieces permanently is almost always better than dealing with them later Nature's Lore >> Sylvan Scrying - IF and ONLY IF you don't include the lands list below

I would cut 3 basics for:

+1 Cavern of Souls - protect the combo +1 Glacial Chasm - save your life from infinite damage +1 Boseiju, Who Shelters All - protect the combo or facilitate your counterspells and stop a combo

I used to play Sen Triplets back in the day, here is some advice that may help!

For Sen Triplets, by the looks of it, you are going for a pure control theme. The cmc curve is far too high and you can cut it out for more interaction/control package. I'm assuming this is on a budget so here might be some cards that I used to run that aren't that expensive at all.



Arcane Denial

Stoic Rebuttal


Sudden Spoiling

Render Silent







I would also up your count on low drop mana rocks, as the faster you have access to Sen, the easier you you will be able to prevent things happening to you as will as playing with your opponents hand :P


Talisman of Dominance

Talisman of Progress

Fellwar Stone

Mind Stone

Orzhov Signet

Commander's Sphere

Thought Vessel

Everflowing Chalice

Now moving on to the next point, how to abuse Sen Triplets? So we all know that you can use Sen Triplets to play anything, but to be less restrictive there are certain cards that synergizes with her. Here are some off the top of my head.


Celestial Dawn

Paradox Haze


Hopefully that helps, if you need any further suggestions or help refining Sen Triplets feel free to ask! She was one of my favorite decks before I dismantled her.

Love the deck idea and build. +1 Just for that.

Here might be some card suggestion for interactions that you may find helpful.

Wear / Tear - Has been a staple card in my card choices whenever a R/W deck is involved.

Sudden Spoiling - Tech card that has been a lifesaver in multiple occasions. Especially in making hexproof creatures target-able.

Vona's Hunger - Same as above, but has multiple uses in disrupting board state.

Mindblade Render - A combat oriented Dark Confidant.

Twilight Prophet - Unsure if this might fit your bill, but it does help with card draw with no downsides but revealing your cards.

Praetor's Grasp - Funny to make them guess what card you took :P

Sadistic Sacrament - Quite an evil card and does interact.

Silence - Can really stop people, when they are going for a big turn. Cast on their upkeep.

Hope that helps, but definitely an interesting list!

To be honest, you can actually cut Infernal Darkness, and no you are not 'forced' to use the other enchantments or creatures. Sundial is just bad in this type of deck and can be cut immediately.

What a combo is when you use two cards that synergize to get a result that more than what the cards itself can do. An infinite combo is when two cards are used in conjunction to produce an effect that can loop itself thus repeating the result infinite times.

Contamination and Sundial has no synergy together, it essentially locks you down as well since your ending your turn and not allowing yourself to do any more interaction, you have to be able to break parity when you play cards. Ophiomancer is great and I would add that in. Same thing how Painful Quandary can work while taxing them. Additionally you would use cards like Mindtwist, Sudden Spoiling, Plaguecrafter, Mutilate, Syphon Mind, Persecute, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, Praetor's Grasp, Sadistic Sacrament.

Plus they would fit your "Cruel" Theme :P
