Infinite Combo EDH

Commander / EDH

rt29 Score: 13


individually, many of the cards in the deck are EDH worthy in their own right, but every single non-land card is also part of some infinite loop with one or more other cards in the deck.

the game plan is to screw around in the early game, trying to survive using the random unmatched combo pieces. zedruu can help draw into more cards by donating lost or difficult combo pieces to opponents. note that you can also play the political game here. eventually by mid-late game, with the amount of cards you've drawn you will in all likelihood have drawn one of the 30+ instant win combos in the deck.

the following is an incomplete list of the interactions i've thought of so far:

infinite damage:

  • Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind + Curiosity/Ophidian Eye (preudo-infinite)
  • Coalhauler Swine + Pariah/Pariah's Shield + Darksteel Plate/Shield of Kaldra
  • Triskelion + Scythe of the Wretched + sacrifice outlet
  • Blasting Station + Grinding Station + Summoning Station + Salvaging Station + Ancient Den/Seat of the Synod/Great Furnace/Chimeric Coils

    infinite creatures:

  • Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker/Splinter Twin + Deceiver Exarch/Pestermite/Sky Hussar/Intruder Alarm/Breath of Fury
  • Training Grounds + Paradise Mantle + Patrol Signaler)
  • Summoning Station + Clock of Omens + Battered Golem/Intruder Alarm

    infinite milling:

  • Training Grounds + Paradise Mantle + Knacksaw Clique

    infinite attack phases:

  • Hellkite Charger + Sword of Feast and Famine

    infinite mana (abusable with Fireball/Invoke the Firemind/Spawnsire of Ulamog/Mirror Entity)

  • Mana Geyser + Reiterate
  • Filigree Sages + Doubling Cube
  • Filigree Sages + Training Grounds + Gilded Lotus/Khalni Gem
  • Echo Mage + Reality Spasm
  • Tidewater Minion + Freed From the Real + Izzet Boilerworks/Azorius Chancery/Gilded Lotus/Khalni Gem
  • Vedalken Engineer + Freed from the Real + Mycosynth Lattice
  • Summoning Station + Mycosynth Lattice + Krark-Clan Ironworks
  • Pentavus + Dross Scorpion + Gilded Lotus
  • Salvaging Station + Chimeric Coils + Dross Scorpion + Gilded Lotus/Khalni Gem
  • Sword of Kaldra + Shield of Kaldra + Helm of Kaldra + Dross Scorpion + Gilded Lotus/Khlani Gem

    infinite creatures entering the battlefield (abusable with Soul Warden and/or Warstorm Surge)

  • Leonin Relic-Warder + Phyrexian Metamorph
  • Reveillark + Body Double + Mirror Entity
  • Triskelion + Scythe of the Wretched
  • Academy Researchers + Fool's Demise + sacrifice outlet (infinite damage with Blasting Station)
  • Training Grounds + Spawnsire of Ulamog
  • Salvaging Station + March of the Machines + Ancient Den/Seat of the Synod/Great Furnace

    instant death

  • Blightsteel Colossus + Warstorm Surge


  • Ceaseless Searblades allows any infinite loop involving activated abilities (which is many of the listed combos and more) to create an arbitrarily large creature
  • Wake Thrasher allows any infinite loop involving anything untapping to create an arbitrarily large creature
  • Tidewater Minion can indefinitely tap to untap itself to combo with both of the above pieces
  • Spawning Pit and Krark-Clan Ironworks are both sacrifice outlets that can be used in some of the above combos

    I don't know if you check this anymore, but I built your deck and absolutely love it, but I messed with it a bit more to my liking. I took out the artifacts of kaldra and the dross scorpion and added in a dead-eye navigator as that came out after this was made an adds to the infinite mana combos with pestermite or deceiver exarch (I also added a peregrine drake to add to the infinite mana combos). I added an omniscience into the deck for forcing certain combos that otherwise wouldn't work in the far end game (it works great with fool's demise). I also added in a heartstone to increase the chances of drawing cards for the patrol signaler/knacksaw clique + paradise mantle combo. Great work with this.

    So, what about getting some synergy with your Pariah + Darksteel Plate combo by adding Mogg Maniac and/or Jackal Pup ?
