Vesuvan Shapeshifter or Identity Thief would also would make this go infinite. You just have to find a way to make something leave as a Wormfang Manta but enter as something else.

Ok turns out I was wrong about Wormfang Manta. It makes you skip the next turn you would take not the specific turn you were going to take next when the ability resolves.

I'm 95% sure you don't need Torpor Orb in any of the combos you mentioned.

Say you target Wormfang Manta with Conjurer's Closet's ability. The 'extra turn' and the 'skip the next turn' abilities may trigger at different times but they don't get put on the stack until the next time a player (a.k.a. you cos' you're the active player) would receive priority and thus you can put them on the stack in the order you choose. Obviously you would put the extra turn on the stack first so the 'skip a turn' ability happens first. The end result is you skip your next turn but replace it with one right after the turn you flickered the manta in. You get to take all of your future turns at once essentially winning the game on the spot.

Here's how I think it would work. Cast Brago, King Eternal then next turn cast Wormfang Manta and attack with Brago. Flicker manta and the triggers should go on the stack at the same time directly after Brago's ability resolves. Choose to put the extra turn first so you skip your next turn but replace it with a turn directly after. Basically you end up taking all of your turns at once.

I'm just worried that "skip your next turn" means "the next time you would take a turn skip it" rather than "yeah you know that specific turn you where going to take directly after this one, well skip that in particular".

P.S. How about with Conjurer's Closet, Deadeye Navigator and Eldrazi Displacer

Wormfang Manta lets you take infinite turns if you play it with Brago out. I also like Peregrine Drake as another way to go infinite with Deadeye Navigator and Eldrazi Displacer and I've found the toolbox effect of Heliod's Pilgrim really useful. I count six lands which seem awkward with Tsabo's Web so maybe that needs a rethink.

i wrote out a big thing about Wormfang Manta before i relized that you dont stack multiple turns after each other, you just do one at a time. I will say something like Flickerwisp, Restoration Angel, Felidar Guardian, might be a better toolbox include instead of Medomai the Ageless because of how many cards in your deck do create extra turns. What is your main win condition? just beating face long enough with extra turns? i use Altar of the Brood as my main wincon, and it doesnt seem like you have a non-combat way to win if they can prevent you from attacking.

Now what WOULD work is this:

Cards Needed:


  1. Sacrifice Wormfang Manta. Its ability triggers, you'll get an extra turn after this one.

  2. Cast Wormfang Manta from the Graveyard. As it enters, its ability cant trigger due to Torpor Orb.

  3. Move to your next turn and repeat steps 1 and 2.

It's not two cards, but it does work by using Muldrotha.

So far as I'm aware, Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is the only creature spell that gives you an unconditional extra turn, and it's banned in EDH. If you're playing without bans, then yeah you could run Emmy alongside something like Temur Sabertooth you could go infinite turns.

Other creatures legal in Animar that give you extra turns:

Lighthouse Chronologist can't really go infinite as it'll never trigger on your turn.

Sage of Hours would need non-creature spells to target it, as etb effects are not spells.

Timestream Navigator tucks itself. Good luck.

Wanderwine Prophets would require an endless supply of merfolk sacs to go infinite.

Wormfang Manta eats its own extra turn when you play/bounce it, unless you somehow have a Stifle effect every turn. Possible with something like Isochron Scepter, but that's a non-creature.
