Voltaic Key Discussion

Winterblast on Divine Decree

If you want cheap acceleration you should definitely add Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, Seething Song, Mana Vault, Voltaic Key, Coalition Relic, Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal. With a bit more money Grim Monolith, Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond and Mox Opal would definitely speed you up even more. I wouldn't play anything that has cost/mana production rate of more than 2:1, unless there's a very good reason for using such a card (like the colour fixing of chromatic lantern, that's a good one). Try to play as many cards that produce more mana than they cost, otherwise it's not really acceleration.

I just put together a decklist. The tricky part is getting enough creatures to go off while ramping. It's definitely going to be broken though. All you need is 2 to 4 other creatures besides Razaketh and you can go off.

Possible combos using card you'd be playing anyway include:

You can also tutor Sacrifice for an 8 mana ritual that ensures you go off same turn.

You can cut down on the creatures you need to sacrifice by tutoring Buried Alive for anything that need to be in the graveyard (or Bloodghast) and by using Rings of Brighthearth to double the tutor ability.


So... Yeah. There's a very good likelihood that Razaketh will get banned.

I'll post the decklist when it's a little more refined.

thegigibeast, I mean, I don't see anything wrong with adding an infinite mana gameplan to Grenzo, but the question is more: How is it better than Doomsday? Y'know?

Part of the appeal of Doomsday Grenzo is that it's super difficult to interact with once Doomsday resolves, since you're only activating abilities after that.

Compare that with Worldgorger combo where it's so fragile a Swords to Plowshares sets you back to having no permanents. For Grenzo at least, it might be better to go with some "safer" infinite mana combos, especially since Grenzo doesn't need mana of any color the way Lyzolda does. Stuff like: Basalt+Rings combo, Nooze+Palladium Myr+Pili-Pala, Rings+Voltaic Key, ... Yeah, there aren't a lot of infinite mana combos in Black/Red, are there?

That said, I don't think they're incompatible, since infinite activations of Grenzo make a lot of plays that already use the cards in the Doomsday pile. For example:

Yawgmoth's Will-->Lotus Petal-->Dark Ritual-->Doomsday--> the usual stack.

  • Or if you don't have access to Doomsday:

Yawgmoth's Will-->Reito Lantern--> the usual stack.

  • Or if you don't have access to Kiki+Conscripts:

Yawgmoth's Will--> infinite Walking Ballista

  • If you get an infinite combo before casting Grenzo you can also put infinite counters on him, and just get every creature out of your deck.

Even still though, infinite mana combos are always going to be 2 to 3 cards, while Doomsday is a single card. This gives Doomsday a much lower threshold of necessary tutors and set-up, and means that Doomsday should probably remain plan A for the deck.

brian.olson542 - Manifold Insights is very decent replacement for the Twister and just add an Arbor Elf or a Voltaic Key in slot of Candelabra :).

Bnon - Reshape is very decent tutor and it works great in my Chain Veil Teferi list. I don't play Rashmi right now but I'd consider adding it in a slot of Jace's Archivist :).

Voltaic Key is good, if you're looking for a multiplayer win condition you could look for something like Mycosynth Lattice and Hellkite Tyrant
