Garna the Heartless Sneakflame Bloodrender

Commander / EDH Aristocrats BR (Rakdos) Combo Discard Infinite Combo



Other (84)

  1. Garna, the Bloodflame returns creatures from graveyard to our hand, and sacrificing Garna before the triggered ability resolves also returns Garna to our hand, thus setting up a loop. Garna and Sneak Attack also give haste so creatures can activate abilities before being sacrificed.

  2. Sneak Attack and Deathrender put creatures into play cheaply. Sneak Attack + Thermopod or Phyrexian Altar + Sneak Attack creates an infinite loop with Garna and any number of creatures. Deathrender does the same with any sac outlet, and Deathrender + Thermopod , Deathrender + Phyrexian Altar , or Ashnod's Altar + Deathrender also generate infinite mana. Note that Garna should be the second last creature put into play with the Deathrender loop so we can put another creature into play after sacrificing Garna, before returning her and all previously sacrificed creatures to hand.

  3. Creatures are cheap to cast with Heartless Summoning, Semblance Anvil, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Mycosynth Golem, Jet Medallion, Ruby Medallion, Bontu's Monument, and Hazoret's Monument.

  4. Zombie Infestation and Skirge Familiar also allow discarding cards for value. This can go infinite with four or more creature cards, Phyrexian Altar or Pitiless Plunderer for , and cost reduction for Garna.

  5. Cards like Paradox Engine, Mana Echoes, Pitiless Plunderer, Priest of Urabrask, Priest of Gix, Su-Chi, Cathodion, Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, Soldevi Adnate, Thermopod, Skirge Familiar, and Metalworker make the loops mana-positive.

  6. Reforge the Soul, Wheel of Fortune, Magus of the Wheel, Sandstone Oracle, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Hazoret's Monument, Grim Haruspex, Harvester of Souls, Smothering Abomination, Disciple of Bolas, Solemn Simulacrum, Mindless Automaton, and Street Wraith help us draw cards. Altar of Dementia functions as pseudo-draw by sacrificing creatures for self-mill, and all the creature cards milled can be returned to hand by Garna.

  7. Purphoros, God of the Forge, Bontu's Monument, and Gray Merchant of Asphodel kill opponents while we loop.
