Oh, right, that did not occur to me. That's just sick :) I am putting up my version of this deck and I might still run two copies of the Zephyr Scribe in case the combo stalls and you need to draw cards and see what happens.

I agree that the extra toughness on Mirran Spy is definitely a plus but I did not exactly catch your idea about the summoning sickness. The thing I like better about Zephyr Scribe is that it may help you loot the library for your extra combo cards, actually.

Battered Golem doesn't die to things like Gut Shot, while Zephyr Scribe does. you could maybe consider the golem instead.

If you want to go in two colored approach there are some nice interactions between some cards you already use there:

Sprout Swarm & other Convoke-Cards: Nettle Sentinel, Thermo-Alchemist & Zephyr Scribe, Midnight Guard

Bramble Elemental: Ghitu Firebreathing, Galvanic Arc (Aura Bolt), Conviction, Mark of Fury, Shimmering Wings, Whip Silk

in gerneral: Roar of the Crowd, Impact Tremors

in gerneral: Distant Melody

in gerneral: Pack's Disdain, Deathspore Thallid

in gerneral: Pallid Mycoderm, Selesnya Evangel, Soul Warden et al. or Suture Priest

@Halogenetic: Thank you for taking the time to comment on my deck. I decided to take a look and upvote yours as well. However I would recommend one change. I would change Mirran Spy out for Nettle Drone. Mirran Spy is a strictly worse Zephyr Scribe in this deck as it doesn't have the additional ability to draw for combo pieces and it also can't be used as the lethal part of the combo. Nettle Drone has the exact same ability as Mirran Spy in this deck but also is able to be used on the other side like Firebrand Archer and Reckless Fireweaver. That was the main reason I didn't run Battered Golem or Mirran Spy in the list I made 2 years ago; they just didn't do enough for the combo.

The deck from 2 years ago, not the one you commented on.

Awesomesocks20: Nettle Drone can replace either Zephyr Scribe or Reckless Fireweaver in the combo. What this means is that it can take the place of one of the 2 cards in the combo.

It can replace Zephyr Scribe as the Banishing Knack/Retraction Helix target because it will untap every time you play one of your 0 CMC Artifacts such as Tormod's Crypt.

For this same reason it can replace Firebrand Archer if you have a Zephyr Scribe or another Nettle Drone in play and just tap it for it's ping whenever you play the 0 CMC artifacts in the infinite combo.

This looks pretty nice! Ive got a few suggestions that I think would improve it slightly.

One, Darksteel Relic is, in my opinion, far and away the best artifact to try to bounce, primarily because it avoids cards like Smash to Smithereens.

That being said, Ensoul Artifact should be at least a two-of, mostly so you can try to bait control into removing or countering something not crucial to your wincon. It also gets around Fatal Push (not Path to Exile, unfortunately, but youd get a free land at least), a must for a deck that doesnt have anything else that cant be pushed.

In terms of the combo itself, Id add Battered Golem as a two of, replacing some of your other pieces (just for more diversity), and replace Reckless Fireweaver with Altar of the Brood. Altar is simply cheaper, harder to remove, and doesnt require any colored mana.

Also, I think you were into something with Grapeshot. Youve got to pay for it the turn you go off, but its far superior to Molten Nursery in terms of efficiency. Its only two mana, can still be cast for infinite damage, and even cant be countered by most spells, due to storm.

In terms of cards to cut, Accorder's Shield for the Relic, and Izzet Charm for scissors. As previously stated, Reckless Fireweaver should be replaced with Altar of the Brood, and at least three Molten Nursery with Grapeshots.

I would avoid using Pentad Prism. Its too risky of an option with cards like Spell Pierce in the format; its better to not have to invest the mana in order to get it back again.

On a separate note, I like the use of Zephyr Scribe as a combo piece. Dont see that card often.

Thats my two cents, good luck with this deck!

In response to bouncing it, remove the two counters to add two mana of any two different colors to your mana pool. Then, it goes back to your hand. Spend the mana to play it again with two counters.

I imagine a game where you're stuck on two lands: turn 2 Pentad Prism. Turn 3: Reckless Fireweaver. Turn 4: remove a counter to Zephyr Scribe. Turn 5: remove the last counter to Retraction Helix and use your lands pay to cast it for the combo win.

Still not bad.
