My Modern version of Saheeli/Felidar combo. Any suggestions are always welcome.

Turn 3: Play Saheeli Rai, make it an artifact with Liquimetal Coating and use her "-2" to copy herself (keep making them) and make an infinite Mill Combo with Altar of the Brood.

Second way to win!:

Turn 2: Play Reckless Fireweaver.

Turn 3: Play Liquimetal Coating.

Turn 4: Play Saheeli Rai, make it an artifact with Liquimetal Coating and use her "-2" to copy herself (keep making them) and make an infinite Damage Combo with Reckless Fireweaver.

Third way to win!:

Turn 1: Play Leonin Elder .

this is a cool deck! there are some combos here that i would never think of and i like how you listed them, because otherwise the deck might seem a bit random.

Lol, thank you. I'm still working on it to give it another infinite combo and get rid of some dead cards to make it a little more consistent. Trying to find another turn 3 combo to go with it.

B0effe says... #17

Well its not another turn 3 combo (actually turn 5) but two Felidar Guardian and a Altar of the Brood is infinite mill. Right?

March 13, 2017 10:27 a.m.

Horrendous says... #18

Yes, yes it is. I didn't even think of that one myself, lol.

March 13, 2017 5:49 p.m.

Nice, very dangerous version of this deck!

March 14, 2017 11:03 a.m.

tlhunter07 says... #20

I've never really understood why you would run a full playset of Spell Snare. Could you enlighten me?

March 14, 2017 5:43 p.m.

Horrendous says... #21

That's not in this deck

March 14, 2017 6:30 p.m.

tlhunter07 says... #22

Well shit. I literally can't read.

Note to self: Peirce does not equal Snare.

March 14, 2017 6:41 p.m.

Horrendous says... #23

Lol its all good spell snare is nice for side board once you know what your fighting specially if they have mana leaks I wouldn't go a full set though

March 14, 2017 6:45 p.m.

Hipparion says... #24

I love the deck :D, +1, but personally I would run Swan Song instead of Spell Pierce simply because I'd rather them get a 2/2 Bird that doesn't change the fact that you're pulling off the combo than run the risk of them paying it away.

March 15, 2017 2:11 a.m.

Horrendous says... #25

Thank you, I will definitely consider that! Might do a 2-2 combo of them.

March 15, 2017 2:47 a.m.

lithium142 says... #26

i agree. in most decks it wouldn't work, but this is turn-3-kill.deck

so those 2/2's shouldnt cause an issue

March 15, 2017 5:26 a.m.

Well, B0eff, it's not. If you make Felidar Guardian an artifact with Liquimetal Coating and bounce him with another Felidar Guardian, he leaves the battlefield, and technically the eot effect of Liquimetal Coating or Argent Mutation ends and the bliked Felidar Guardian returns as a nonartifact, so that combo isn't infinite

March 15, 2017 6:04 p.m.

Horrendous says... #28

It is infinite with the mill not the life gain and dmg aspect though

March 15, 2017 6:11 p.m.

I never said it was tbh, but that combo isn't infinite (that's my point)

March 15, 2017 6:24 p.m.

Oh wait, it is. Soz. I thought Altar of the Brood was artifact etb, not just any permanent. It is infinite.

March 15, 2017 6:41 p.m.

B0effe says... #31

Haha. Sometimes tappedout needs a "like"-function for comments.

March 16, 2017 10:27 a.m.

Horrendous says... #32

I agree B0effe lol

March 16, 2017 11:29 a.m.

Scorprix says... #33

Sorry if I'm missing something, but why is Argent Mutation in here?

March 16, 2017 1:18 p.m.

Horrendous says... #34

Well, it does the same as liquimetal, so. Say it's game 2 of the round they've seen the combo and are rdy to destroy liquimetal or counter it but they havnt seen mutation yet, well there ya go. just play it next round and infinite mill again also it's like a fail safe and an extra way to get the combo.

March 16, 2017 1:46 p.m.

Mongol says... #35

Ok what am I missing? How do the copies of Saheeli become artifacts?

March 16, 2017 9:37 p.m.

Horrendous says... #36

Her copy ability makes them artifacts

March 16, 2017 10:59 p.m.

lagotripha says... #37

Drift of Phantasms might be a better tutor as it can fetch argent? Restoration Angel as backup for the felidar combo?

March 17, 2017 4:38 p.m.

BioProfDude says... #38

Um, in your first win combo, once Saheeli Rai leaves the battlefield and re-enters, she is no longer an artifact and cannot be her own target as a result. You would have to be able to untap Liquimetal Coating with each Saheeli Rai blink, or it only works as a blink the first time. Once she leaves the battlefield, the target for Liquimetal Coating is gone and she re-enters as a new target, so the effects are gone.

This would seem to be true for your first 3 win conditions. Sorry...

March 17, 2017 5:24 p.m.

BioProfDude says... #39

I'm stupid. Nevermind. I get how it would work. When she's blinked back in she is an artifact in addition to her other types, so you don't need to un-tap and re-tap Liquimetal Coating each time. Derp...

Nice combo! Sorry I said something so silly! :-)

March 17, 2017 5:32 p.m.

Horrendous says... #40

Lol its all good she's not actually blinking in anyway your just making copies of her :) she only blinks with the felidar combo

March 17, 2017 5:37 p.m.

BioProfDude says... #41

Ya, I get it, just using "blinking" incorrectly, but it's the copy making causing the "old" copy to go away. Very clever, by the way. How was this missed so badly by so many people for so long?

March 17, 2017 6:08 p.m.

Horrendous says... #42

Not sure honestly lol its super fun to play though, chance to go infinite any turn after 3 is fun and so many ppl don't know what to counter when they go against it. Mill decks hurt though specially if they get all of my Saheeli and felidar then there's nothing to combo off of haha

Mannu_1978 says... #43

Hello - Fireweaver is cool but what about Impact Tremors? It's less "boltable".

xyr0s says... #44

Combo 1 doesn't work. You use liquimetal coating, and then you make a copy, with a sorcery speed ability. A new copy of Saheeli comes into play... and... causes the planeswalker-version of the legendary rule to trigger. You can either keep the original, artifact Saheeli, who has shot her ability, or the new spiffy non-artifact. And only after you've removed the excess saheeli, and the stack has resolved, do you get to put a new planeswalker ability on the stack... from the new, non-artifactual saheeli.

March 23, 2017 6:36 p.m.

Horrendous says... #45

It does work

March 23, 2017 7:48 p.m.

Horrendous says... #46

its like no one actually reads her second ability

March 23, 2017 8:33 p.m.

BioProfDude says... #47

Well, in fairness, I'm a dude, so let's call it male selective reading for me.

March 23, 2017 8:53 p.m.

BioProfDude says... #48

By the way, a friend told me this first combo of yours made a top 8 modern in some tour-level tourney-- is that correct?

March 23, 2017 9:07 p.m.

lithium142 says... #49

xyr0s read the card before you comment please. This didn't just magically get by level 3 judges at the protour...

She copies an artifact or creature. The token she makes is an artifact in addition to its other types. Combo works fine

ravengamer93 says... #50

How well does this deck respond to thoughtsieze into surgical extraction? they can target either saheeli or altar and they might have you depending on your opening hand.

March 24, 2017 5:07 a.m.

Horrendous says... #51

BioProfDude I have no idea about the tourney thing, I didn't even know it was a well know combo, I was just looking through list after list of cards till I found an awesome combo lol

March 24, 2017 7:44 a.m.

Horrendous says... #52

ravengamer93 that combo does hurt it very badly I actually went against someone running that Monday night at my lgs modern tourney he removed my Saheeli and liquimetal but didn't realize I could infinite mill him with 2 felidar so still won but it does hurt it bad if they know the deck

March 24, 2017 7:47 a.m.

Devinmlake says... #53

You should definitely put some more counters in your sideboard incase you're playing an opponent who can systematically get rid of your Saheeli's with discard or cards like Surgical Extraction or Extirpate

March 24, 2017 3:10 p.m.

Horrendous says... #54

Yeah, I'm still working on it and playing it in tourneys to see what worKS best against the decks they run at my lgs
