MTG Combo: Splinter Twin + Zealous Conscripts

Generates infinite hasty copies of Zealous Conscripts; enchant the Conscripts with the Splinter Twin, tap it to make a copy and untap the original with the copy's enter-the-battlefield ability, then repeat.

Oops, I got totally stupid while cutting and pasting! I meant to say something like:

... because like with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Splinter Twin + Zealous Conscripts goes infinite.

(the "both go infinite" piece was left over from thinking about Restoration Angel, which is obviously a non-bo with Splinter Twin)

Raging_Squiggle,
Ah gotcha. I'm used to combo players sitting on cards until they have all the pieces in hand. I like your style though much better!

So there's some fun synergy with Ivy Lane Denizen + Presence of Gond . And Champion of Lambholt + Presence of Gond isn't terrible. Still, I'm frankly not sure that's good enough to justify a slot either.

Splinter Twin's worth another look though, because of Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Splinter Twin and Splinter Twin + Zealous Conscripts which both go infinite.

Another possible option: Elemental Mastery + Midnight Guard , just because the Mastery is good on anybody when Omnath's out.

By the way, I forgot to mention: For me, Cavern of Souls isn't so much about tribal support as it is about declaring Elemental or Beast to get your Commander on the board. Because while Vexing Shusher is great tech, its ability can be countered (e.g., by Stifle or Squelch). I'm not trying to oversell the Cavern here, just wanted to mention in case you ever need it.
