MTG Combo: Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter

This combo generates infinite:

  • Mana (any color your nonland mana sources can produce)
  • Cast triggers

Note: This combo requires one or more nonland permanent(s) that taps for 3+ mana

Steps:

  1. Play Isochron Scepter and exile Dramatic Reversal .
  2. Tap any nonland mana source(s) to produce 3 or more mana.
  3. Pay 2 of that mana to tap Isochron Scepter and cast the copy of Dramatic Reversal .
  4. When Dramatic Reversal is cast, untap Isochron Scepter and your nonland mana sources.
  5. Repeat steps 2 and 4, netting excess mana infinitely.

Awesome deck!

I would add the Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter combo! A easy combo that is safer and cheaper than the old Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth you used to run.

If you have the budget, Mana Crypt and Mana Vault are a must in almost any cEDH deck!

For last, Smothering Tithe is just amazing!!

Uh... Bump? Apparently Bold does nothing; & the same with Italics...

I'm asking again as nobody seems to understand; & the few that do mock it.:

  1. Do you think Pierakor az Vinrenn D'rav deserves a spot on the 99/98? We already have a cEDH Commander Deck based on her, & she's Tier 3; which is where I'm starting; very young. If so, what would you suggest for better variants of the Instants/Sorceries I have now? If not, remember that Sunforger is also trash here. Same for how broken Panoptic Mirror is, & unbanning that would lead to infinite destruction (As long as it doesn't have & is Upkeep Friendly...); just remember we still have Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter

  2. Is Eldrazi Displacer worth keeping here? What about Legion's Initiative ? Just found out about a card in Boros' colors than cleanses you of Poison Counters. How about Leeches ?

  3. UPDATE: Grindstone & Painter's Servant = awesome. This is resolved; now I am thinking of making Dream Combos for Boros; There was one out there for Doomsday , but I wonder about the others...

  4. How does one make a Community Deck? I plan to make one for the few cEDH Boros Users in the subformat.

  5. For Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker & Village Bell-Ringer , how good is Generator Servant , or Catalyst Elemental good, or should I stay with the usual Phyrexian Altar & Ashnod's Altar ?

I'd really like your opinion on this; is any of this worth it?

DO I HAVE TO BUMP LIKE A DANG GOD!

First of all, some questions:

  1. Do you think Feather, the Redeemed deserves a spot on the 99/98? We already have a cEDH Commander Deck based on her, & she's Tier 3; which is where I'm starting; very young. If so, what would you suggest for better variants of the Instants/Sorceries I have now? If not, remember that Sunforger is also trash here. Same for how broken Panoptic Mirror is, & unbanning that would lead to infinite destruction (As long as it doesn't have & is Upkeep Friendly...); just remember we still have Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter

  2. Is Eldrazi Displacer worth keeping here? What about Legion's Initiative ?

  3. Why is nobody mentioning Painter's Servant here? What would be your color Combo for him in cEDH Boros? ? ? Or other?

  4. How does one make a Community Deck? I plan to make one for the few cEDH Boros Users in the subformat.

All that said, I just wonder your opinions...

Well, competitively they filter and fix mana when you do an infinite mana combo. Just with the very popular untappybois Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter and Paradox Engine though.

Infinite Mana Combos

Grim Monolith + Power Artifact = infinite mana

Basalt Monolith + Power Artifact = infinite mana

Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth = infinite mana

Aphetto Alchemist + Rings of Brighthearth + artifact that make 3+ mana = infinite mana

Aphetto Alchemist + Illusionist's Bracers + artifact that make 1+ mana = infinite mana

Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter + artifact that make 3+ mana = infinite mana

Grand Architect + Pili-Pala = infinite mana

I'm working on changing my thrasios deck into an ultra competitive list like this. I have a few questions of some of the cards.

Yawgmoth's Will : This card is really powerful, except it seems to mess with the combo turn too much. Have you considered taking it out if it's just used as a general value card? What circumstances would I absolutely need this?

Memory's Journey : I don't have a timetwister so this is the recommended "loop" card. Is there a reason I can't use Isochron Scepter with Noxious Revival along with Paradox Engine or Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter ? Assuming I'm on the combo turn, memory's journey seems like a nice source of redundancy but not actually required.

King_C_Waffa Thank you for your input! You're correct in assuming I'm pretty new to cEDH, although I have probably 7 other decks IRL that already have all snow lands and Extraplanar Lens . I don't feel it's necessary for this deck though. I don't play EDH competitively very often because in my area all the cEDH players are insufferable assholes, plus I tend to play more for fun usually. However, I just had to take a stab at this deck. So let's get down to the suggestions:

  • Intuition is great. I knew it felt like I was missing some powerful tutor. It is definitely being added.
  • Paradigm Shift seemed decent, which was why it was in the maybeboard, but I've had a day to think about it and I agree it should be in here.
  • I'm not sure I need Windfall . I did consider it, but I think most of the time Tolarian Winds is going to be better since the odds are that I won't draw it until I'm comboing off anyway.
  • I have multiple back up win conditions in the deck already, and although I was being cute with the Charbelcher combo with Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter I'll probably swap that over to an Aetherflux Reservoir . Paradox Engine might find its way in
  • Panharmonicon is in because I have a strong feeling I'll need to rebuild many times, and this helps me do so. But you know what? Let's go more defensive. This is going to be a Defense Grid .
  • Mox Amber is terrible in commander, usually. I play it none of my other decks. I think it's perfectly fine in this deck since I'm only trying to get to 6 mana and Fblthp should be in play most of the time.
  • Daze is probably fine to cut, I agree.
  • I also do not know what the point of Paradoxical Outcome was. When I built this list at work, I first settled on a number of lands to run and then all I did was add cards until I had exactly 100, and the maybeboard cards on here were all cards I thought of afterward. Up until now, I haven't touched the list since I made it. I think I had some dumb idea with it originally but never followed up with whatever it was, so yeah it needs to change.

So all in all, I think the current changes are as follows:

Thanks for the suggestions cdkime!

  • I truly think Smothering Tithe is a great card, but not sure it has a place in this deck considering it's mana cost and the fact that Rhystic Study would be what I would, if I wanted to spend a bit more for the deck, really put in.

  • Ethersworn Canonist is a card I play in my Sit on your ass EDH and I consider it's effect to be particuliary fitting there. While the card is great, I don't want to go to far into passive control with this here deck.

- Fabricate is great and I'm waiting for a chance to get one. ;-()

-we don't talk about Cyclonic Rift here. Jokes aside, it's a definite include, just waiting for budget/finding reasons.

  • I refuse to play Purphoros, God of the Forge and Paradox Engine out of spite!. No not really hehe, but I don't think I want them in, active control, kill to kill and such is the vibe here. Arguably, these card fits the bill, but I'm imposing some budget limits.

-Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter is amazing, thanks

Well, thank you for your time and suggestions!
