Vela the Night-Clad ends the game with food chain like Walking Ballista. I never knew it existed but it was pointed out to me last night.

TheDevicer: Seriously wtf...Vela the Night-Clad also works and to the best of my knowledge noone (including myself) has ever tried it. Lol this game never ceases to suprise me. Good call! I have been toiling so much harder than necessary with this damn combo. Since the wording is leave the battlefield and not dies the food chain combo itself will trigger vela infinitely. Her being high cc is actually ok too because it helps necrotic ooze combo, which I feel is the ideal backup combo to food chain for sidisi.

Correction: Now that SBT has 2 food chain outlets she is by far the fasest BUG combo general

Each opponent will lose 30 life, which is different from dealing 30 damage, but yes, each Vela the Night-Clad sees the 5 that die and trigger 5 times each. If the Rite of Replication is targeting an opponent's Vela only 4 die with only 5 seeing the deaths resulting in 20 triggers for 20 life loss from each opponent.

Please use double square brackets to link cards. It's the easiest way to make sure everyone reading your question understands what's going on. Vela the Night-Clad, Rite of Replication

An ability that triggers when an object leaves the battlefield (including "dies" triggers) will use information about the game from the last moment that object was on the battlefield to determine if and how it triggers. In your example, all 6 Velas were on the battlefield right before the Legend rule made you put 5 of them into the graveyard. That means all 6 of them will trigger 5 times each, and 6 x 5 = 30.

Thraxhunter, thanks for the tips! I added a Vengeful Dead instead of the Blood Artist because of the "zombie flavor", and also a Vela the Night-Clad for the same combo interaction (it has a higher CMC, but it adds the benefit of giving other creatures Intimidate, while the combo is not set yet).

I'm studying your list also for new ideas. Thanks!

Yeah, that's true. I mainly had it in as a way to keep Vela the Night-Clad from getting destroyed etc. but I suppose with Graf Harvest, she isn't a 100% win condition.

This cards reads "bonkers shit can happen when pared with Strionic Resonator" or Vela the Night-Clad type stuff.

What's your guys thoughts on this cards? Are you guys running this card? Do you know any sweet combos with this card? Are you wondering like me why it's only 35 cents? Let's talk about this.
