bem77 I can respect the tribal limitations but I would recommend the combo of Midnight Guard + Presence of Gond for as many tokens as you need you can replace the guard with a Sunstrike Legionnaire and the combo stayed the same.

And I really do need to fix my mana.

Hi! Wow!

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the kind words, advice, and upvote! I'm glad you like what I have so far for the description. I always get those up before asking for help on decks because if there's no description it's near impossible to help. Anyway, I wanted to make a Intruder Alarm combo deck and a Zur deck, so putting them together seem perfect! I wanted a really unique deck since my last deck was heavily based on someone else's.

I see your point about streamlining the combos. I've been worrying I was going a little too far in some places(especially with #2) and I agree with your assesment.

Combo #1

Yeah those two creatures, Steward of Solidarity, and Necrotic Ooze(with them in the 'yard) is the main game plan. All others are secondary and may be cut. I know the Steward isn't as good and is near useless alone but I needed some consistency without having to cash out for Demonic Tutor haha

Sun Titan is great. He hits half my deck :)

Standstill seems okay. It looks kinda easy to play around and doesn't help me if my opponent's board presence is greater. Still, I'll consider it.

Yeah, the lack of haste in the colors is killer. Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves and their tutors, and Hall of the Bandit Lord are all I have atm. The pillowfort strategy how I live the extra turn to win and I'm glad you noticed and appreciated that!

Grand Abolisher, Shielded by Faith, and Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir are all being considered. Great suggestions!

I agree with you about all the extra creatures, but I'll keep Steward of Solidarity for now because of the cheap cost and because Sun Titan can get her back.

Combo #2

Yeah, honestly... someone telling me I'm overcommiting on #2 is exactly what I needed. You're right haha

I'll probably end up shuffling this part around a bit. I like the schoolmaster and I like how he can also combo with Sunstrike Legionnaire. I'll leave them, Hermetic Study, and Psionic Gift, then probably toss the rest.

Vedalken AEthermage is good. I'll pick one up!

Combo #3

Gray Merchant of Asphodel will probably be cut but Hell's Caretaker has a lot of synergy with my recursion package of Karmic Guide, Reveillark, Sun Titan, Fiend Hunter, and Auramancer. He's just generally very good and near infinite with Alarm out. I'll ditch the combo but I think he can slide into another category.

While all that's going on.

I've decided Suture Priest and Soul Warden are out. Altar of the Brood and Hair-Strung Koto will stay for now.

I like Trinket Mage because he's a cheap tutor, but I don't have many other targets for him.

Martyr's Cause is one I have actually! I haven't tested it out yet but we'll see!

After streamlining Combo #1 and Combo #2 here's what they could look like:

Thanks for laying everything out for my like that! Extremely helpful!

I like that way of looking at it. Pillowfort first, combo second. Thanks for that advice!

Again, thanks for laying all the suggestions out like this! It's especially helpful when you've already talked about the deck a ton and now you're giving the suggestions to go off of what you've already said. I'm finding this extremely helpful and will try to do it like this when I help people!

Ethereal Armor is an easy addition. I already have one so I'll throw it in there!

Empyrial Armor will be good when I get my Necropotence!

Once again, loving the summarized lists. It's nice to see what the deck could look like in this way. You are good at what you do friend. You deserve that top helper rank.

I'm glad you recognize some creativity and uniqueness in the deck. I'll gladly take all of your advise into consideration.

I'm going to be updating the deck soon, perhaps this weekend. I'd love it if you'd look at it again once I do... though I know you've definitely spent a lot of time on it haha! Let me know if it'd be okay to tag you or something :)

My sincerest thanks!

Thank You LeaPlath for your very detailed comment. I do see what you mean when you say the deck is poor. This deck was not supposed to see competitive play, just something I made for fun.

If an opponent playing aginst this deck has a bad deck themselves or is not a good player, this deck CAN win turn three if I just add 4 Concordant Crossroads.

Turn 1, Play-Forest, Forest, Play-Birds of Paradise

Turn 2,Play-Forest, Birds of Paradise, Play-Sunstrike Legionnaire

Turn 3,Play-Forest, -Forest, -Forest, Birds of Paradise, Play-Presence of Gond, Enchant-Sunstrike LegionnaireWithPresence of Gond, -Forest, Play-Concordant Crossroads, Sunstrike Legionnaire Activating the infinate combo, and all of the 1/1 Elves have haste.

Hey with the help of everyone we can get every single Infinite Combo there is that is legal in legacy. Legacy is my favorite format to play in so if we can put together every single infinite combo legal in legacy I would appreciate it greatly.

I will start with probably the most known and simple infinite combo ever, I even made a deck based around it. Infinite Elves Mayhem(My deck).

The Combo is!!!!

Presence of Gond+Midnight Guard/Sunstrike Legionnaire=Infinate 1/1 Elves

Thank you!!,

Since it is Umbral Mantle providing your infinite mana and not Selvala, I think you are running the wrong Selvala. Using Selvala, Explorer Returned get you access to Rhys the Redeemed and the Presence of Gond/Midnight Guard or Sunstrike Legionnaire combo. As an added bonus, Umbral + Sunstrike is infinite tapping of opponents' creatures.

Thanks for commenting, Regoober! I tried to respond to you earlier, but my computer freaked out and deleted my entire response when I went to post it...!

I like Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Restoration Angel, but my 2 problems with Kiki is one, the RRR, and two, he gets shut down almost instantly in my play group. People know exactly what he can do. I'm more inclined to run the Angel, I think, but at the same time, most of my ETB isn't relevant to WHAT creature enters, just that it's a creature. That Trostani's summoner combo is nice though, I will admit! I just thought of this as well, but would Kiki's tokens be exiled if you populated them? I don't think they would, but I could be wrong. He's much more viable at that point!

Yeah, I just recently got a couple of valuable cards for cheap, so trading for Earthcraft is a much more viable option now.

I have similar reservations about Midnight Guard and Sunstrike Legionnaire, although they make Cryptolith Rite amazing, a similar effect with Earthcraft, and it also works well with Glare of Subdual. I like the permanance of Presence of Gond and the creatures-in-relation-to-size idea of Elemental Mastery, although out of the two I'm more inclined to run Mastery, although if I ended up putting the other two cards in I'd consider Gond as well.

I could see how Valor in Akros could be extremely useful burst damage, but I have the same problem with that as I do with Mastery; I like permanence. It's gotta stick around to bother opponents every turn of the game that they don't do something about it!

You mentioned Make a Stand and I bought it that night! I was planning on replacing [[]] with Dauntless Escort anyways, as it is in every way better, it was just a matter of getting it. Selfless Spirit is a bit too high for me, price wise, when I can just run cheaper mass indestructible.

Caller of the Claw is kinda a bummer as it doesn't work on tokens, but Fresh Meat is going in now thanks to you! Faith's Reward is also going in.

I gasped and started laughing when I saw the Pyrohemia + Vigor combo. That thing is just nasty, plus Pyro is one of my favorite red burn cards, like a cheap Pestilence Demon. If I can manage to find a copy of Vigor for trade or such he'll most definitely be going in. Unfortunately I had considered and tested Pyro, and more often than not it came out to be counter-productive, although if I threw more graveyard and death triggers in there it'd be much more viable.

I also considered Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, but by the point she'd come out in our games she was just a massive target and I was either already shut down or overwhelming.

I picked Phyrexian Rebirth over March of Souls mainly because of my populate cards. If I have to board-wipe and can't afford or can't manage to make my creatures indestructable, Growing Ranks looks much more entertaining, doesn't it?


And another quick question for everyone; know of a cheap mass-haste card? I've seen a couple and have one or two, but I want to see as many options as I can, because I feel like there are ones out there that fit this deck better than just haste, like a second ability on the same card.

The reason why I'd like haste is because it makes combos like Cryptolith Rite+Doubling Season/Parallel Lives=Ant Queen so much more common and easy to run, but it's still at least a 3 card combo, so not my main method of winning.
