griffstick on Is this infinite combo tournament ...

21 hours ago

I came up with a complicated combo quite a while ago. Its Viscera Seer, Mortuary, Deathrender, and Harvester of Souls.

1 2 3 4

this is an infinite loop where you equip the Deathrender to any creature. For this instance let's say we equip it to Noxious Gearhulk, sacrifice it to Viscera Seer, scry goes on the stack, then Deathrender goes on the stack, then Harvester of Souls goes on the stack, then Mortuary goes on the stack. And they resolve like that.

Mortuary puts the creature on top of your library, then you draw that creature, then you put it into play attached to Deathrender, then Noxious Gearhulk's trigger resolves, then you scry. Rinse wash and repeat

I think the deck might need might need 1 or 2 solid sac outlets. Something like Viscera Seer, Carrion Feeder or Butcher of the Horde.

Even Dimir House Guard is interesting because it can be a free outlet or transmute into a different powerful 4 drop like Anointed Procession or Smothering Tithe.

There are a few other, "Oops, lethal" card i was looking at were Rally the Ancestors and Boros Charm. Rallying back a few creatures with a sac outlets and a payoff like Cruel Celebrant can easily lay down a lot of damage at instant speed. Instant speed double strike can get a surprise commander kill. The ability to protect your board is icing on the cake.

I really like Offspring's Revenge. Though it is probably too slow. But i mean, the kitty is cute so... playable.

Ruinous Ultimatum is pretty silly too. I think cheaper board wipes are more effective since all of your creatures dying it kind of the point.

I honestly don't believe that going tall is the way to go and that Shadowspear isn't really worth the deck slot.

Reconnaissance and Etchings of the Chosen do seem really sweet though I am struggling to find the room for them.

There are a lot of good shapeshifters and changelings out there but I don't want to run any of them. They may be Vampires technically but I can't bring myself to see them as such.

I included The Oathsworn Vampire + Phyrexian Altar combo because it does seem to be a good out to have. Also they are perfectly usable on their own. Viscera Seer I am not totally sold on yet. Other one drops seem to be either much more aggressive or give more value later one. Would play it though if I found the space.

Appreciate the input.

Hey, for midrange Vamps with Edgar I think you want to focus more on Edgar/ramp and less on eminence/tokens. Go tall with Vamps instead of going wide. Use Edgar as your main attacker because he has haste. With a midrange strategy tokens are better as sac fodder for value then attackers. For midrange, Talismans and Signets will do more then many subpar one/two drop Vamps because they're ramp for Edgar.

Shadowspear is a good midrange equipment with Edgar giving him evasion. Reconnaissance has already been suggested and it's busted when Vamps have first strike; Edgar has first strike. Etchings of the Chosen can be repeatable protection for Edgar by sacing a Vamp token.

Mana sinks are helpful with midrange because they give you a way to use mana instead of casting low mana cost Vamps. Mirror Entity is a Vamp, it will trigger eminence. It's obviously good with go wide strategy, but still fine for midrange/ramp because it can pump itself as well as Edgar. Any +1/+1 counters that are on Edgar/Vamps are applied to it's power/toughness after Entity changes original on card power/toughness. Anthem effects are also applied after Entity.


An upgrade to consider is an infinite combo with Oathsworn Vampire and Phyrexian Altar. Oathsworn can do a lot since it can be cast from your graveyard, meaning it triggers eminence when it does this. Oathsworn + Altar + Blood Artist/Cruel Celebrant is an infinite combo because of eminence. This combo gives you a win condition without needing to attack with Vamps which is important because sometimes you can't attack.

The combo is compact goes with the Vampire tribal strategy because it uses two Vamps. Altar can be good ramp/color fixing when tokens are being used as sac fodder. Oathsworn makes playing other sac outlets such as Viscera Seer more beneficial. Using a different sac outlet than Altar such as Seer isn't an infinite combo, but it can create a lot of Vamp tokens for more fodder depending on how much mana you have available.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice start. I suggest cutting a few subpar reanimation spells for more lands and more low CMC ramp. 31 lands is on the low side for a 4.6 avg. CMC.

Lands/ramp for $400 budget to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Unholy Indenture
  • Immortal Servitude
  • Resurrection
  • Miraculous Recovery
  • Rise to Glory
  • Blood for Bones
  • Bond of Revival
  • Breath of Life

Another thing consider would be to cut some the least good high CMC creatures for tutors to get the better cards into your hand especially Buried Alive and repeatable draw sources. Razaketh, Elesh, Sheoldred, Vilis, Titan, Ashen, Primordial are the best ones. Kokusho and Yosei want more consistent sac outlets that can be reanimated/recurred such as Viscera Seer.

Tutors/draw for a $400 budget to consider adding:

Good luck with your deck.

Also, thanks I guess because I am taking some suggestions from your decklist to add to my Teysa Karlov deck, Teysa's Cheery Sacrifice. :-)
