Just took 20 damage to face no, problem. Want to deal 20 to the face go a head. Need to draw ten cards, or maybe thirty. Feeling generous? Let your opponent draw instead. With this deck, you can be in mana heaven.
So pick it up at the nearest store. This deck uses an infinite mana combo with Axebane Guardian + Freed from the Real

You can use this absurd amount of mana can be spent on Banefire for tons of damage and most likely an instant win. Other methods include but not limited to Blue Sun's Zenith for a two way win ether the draw their entire library plus one or add in a Laboratory Maniac for some fun. Or Genesis Wave for your library and get everything.

You can get all the life and craws you want with Staff of Domination plus the infinite mana combo.

and here is a fancy list of the cards

Axebane Guardian is part of the mana combo and ramp

Drift of Phantasms can find any piece of the combo I need

Fog Bank is a all around great blocker

Overgrown Battlement can help the mana combo and ramp

Sylvan Caryatid any color ramp

Blue Sun's Zenith can have the oppent draw out or combo with laboratory maniac

Collected Company is to help reach the defender count

Condescend might as well say counter scry 2

Remand is a great early delay card

Banefire kills them

Genesis Wave puts the entire libery on to the battlefield

Freed from the Real is the mana combo

Staff of Domination is for life and draw

You might like fog bank, it's one of the best defenders in the game. If you token coy it in any way it will generate a massive indestructible defensive barrier that will block flying. It's hilariously brutal against aggro opponents.

Wow, didn't see that coming! Just lost to your deck (I was playing legacy Miracles) because of an infinite mana combo between Sylvan Caryatid, Overgrown Battlement, Staff of Domination, which chained into Blue Sun's Zenith for the whole library and casting Emrakul, the Aeons Torn for the extra turn and other benefits. What I would've liked to see was maybe 1 Kruphix, God of Horizons to keep infinite mana forever? That would've been fun. Great deck!

Cool concept; +1! Windswept Heath is about $10 now. Why not throw in a playset to make the mana base more reliable?

Just play-tested this against my mono black deck (Pushing Through (Mono-Black Aggro)) and while I was able to fight through, it certainly was not easy going.

Based on the match I would recommend some hate for Pithing Needle as in game 2 I was able to name your Staff of Domination and removed your creature when Freed from the Real showed up. Also, I would cut Banefire as every time I had it in hand, I just wished it was a piece of early interaction or card draw as I was able to reliably find a finisher in Blue suns or Wave during all the games. I would also recommend you increase the number of counterspells you run as I feel that it was a little too easy to remove your creatures and you were often able to leave 1-2 mana up for something like Spell Pierce, Remand or Mana Leak.

All in all, the deck was certainly fun to play and with a little more interaction and a fleshed out sideboard I can imagine this being quite annoying to play against. +1

What do you think a budget version of this would look like

Awesome +1

PrestonRush says... #10

Hamster2558 it depends on how budget you want. i would say a cheaper sideboard with answers to problems remove the staff and fancy land and replace remand with mana leak. this will weaken the deck but could still be fun.

February 1, 2017 10:36 a.m.

Hamster2558 says... #11

I have the budget deck right here Budget Infinite Mana-Dork. It is just a rough draft right now.

Heliod's Pilgrim lets you find the aura you want.

Wall of Omens is good too.

PrestonRush says... #14

as far as Colossus of Akros is concerned its fun and fits the theme but if i want an attacker ill use Emrakul, the Aeons Torn

Heliod's Pilgrim i have the Drift of Phantasms they let me search for any peace i need

Wall of Omens i don't have the room for it i use to have Bonded Fetch in earlier versions

February 5, 2017 10:33 a.m.

this deck is yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge +1

DeaconofJace says... #16

Umbral Mantle is cheap alternative to Staff of Domination

February 5, 2017 11:06 a.m.

PrestonRush says... #17

Staff of Domination is mainly in here for life and draw not as the mana source

February 5, 2017 11:29 a.m.

ALBO says... #18

Sweet Deck... I casted Emrakul on turn 5! :D


February 6, 2017 12:32 p.m.

Hamster2558 says... #19

Why is Banefire in sideboard? Why don't you just use it over Fireball so that it can't be prevented?

February 7, 2017 10:43 a.m.

PrestonRush says... #20

its mainly local meta for killing them and their platinum angle and not to many decks in the local mate have a to many counter spells it's manly kill spells

Ohhhh ok

One question. Is the wall going to be around Trump?

February 12, 2017 2:41 p.m.

Now thats a wall Mexico would be willing to pay for...

February 12, 2017 2:45 p.m.

Add Phenax, God of Deception!!!!!!!!!! Mill them for 60 a turn :)

catrule3564 says... #26

I love the deck, but Laboratory Maniac seems unnecessary. If you can Blue Sun's Zenith yourself for your entire library, then you could just do the same to your opponent.

+1 in any case, the deck looks sweet.

February 13, 2017 2:01 p.m.

PrestonRush says... #27

Laboratory Maniac is for greater win chance with Genesis Wave

February 13, 2017 3:18 p.m.

catrule3564 says... #28

You're totally right. I missed the interaction between Lab Man and Genesis Wave.

I have a 5 colour Defender deck. If you run Galvanic Alchemist, you can make your Axbanes infinite mana with just 4 defenders. Just read Freed form the Real, that is probs better. xD

February 17, 2017 3:04 p.m.

PrestonRush says... #31

why would i replace freed from the real with galvanic alchemist i see no advantage?

February 17, 2017 6:54 p.m.

KylerStar says... #32

I did not say too?:P

February 17, 2017 11:02 p.m.

rcrimmins says... #33

So... Freed from the Real doesn't give you Infinite Mana here. You'd need Bloom Tender for that. It could give you a bunch of mana, but not necessarily.

February 21, 2017 1:37 p.m.

rcrimmins says... #34

Ah, nm Axbane.

February 21, 2017 1:50 p.m.

nyctophasm says... #35

Turn four put your library on the battlefield, draw a card with staff, win with the maniac... wow? This is getting a +1 for sure. I love it. Reminds me of the defender deck I made in INN-RTR standard where I had ramp similar to this type and used it in a simic shell to cast Debt to the Deathless for lethal to win. Ahh... good times. Well done here.

February 25, 2017 9:53 a.m.

Bluefire016 says... #36

I have a defender deck focused around Axebane Guardian and casting Banefire for lethal. I did not know of the combo between Axebane and Freed from the Real, I will definitely be adding it to the deck and tossing in my playset of Drift of Phantasms as copies 4-8 of either Axebane or FftR, and it can also tutor for Genesis Wave so I will be adding a copy of that as well. +1 Definitely, well done.

PrestonRush says... #37

Thanks for all the support guys I really do enjoy playing around with this deck

March 12, 2017 1:11 p.m.

Xandermarron says... #38

I apologize for my poor memory here, but I believe there exists a green enchant that lets your creatures attack with toughness, possibly for sideboard use.

I've played with this deck before, and it gets absolutely WRECKED by counter/attack spell decks, and I believe that card would help.

OH right, Assault Formation!
