Can you help me out here sourmonkey? Which infinite combo's are in there? I can only see these two

Devoted Druid + Quillspike = infinite big creature

Azami, Lady of Scrolls / Drowner of Secrets + Stonybrook Schoolmaster + Intruder Alarm = infinite creatures + infinite draw / infinite mill

In addition to the ones that you mentioned there MonkeyMind there are 2 more.

Intruder Alarm + Llanowar Elves + Imperious Perfect = Infinite creatures

Intruder Alarm + Presence of Gond on any creature = Infinite creatures

I know it doesn't apply to this deck but another combo with Devoted Druid is:

Devoted Druid + Presence of Gond + Sigil of the Nayan Gods

I love this deck, and +1 from me. But a few things:

  1. Why Birds of Paradise ? You have Llanowar Elves for acceleration already and your curve tops out at three.

  2. Why Idyllic Tutor ? You should draw the enchantment you need without having to tutor for it.

Also, run 60 cards.

Well Matsi883, thanks for your feedback and praise. I appreciate it.

To answer your questions, even though I do have Llanowar Elves , I want to run Birds of Paradise as well for 3 reasons.

1-The most common combo in this deck is an infinite amount of creatures. When you combine that with Sigil of the Nayan Gods it makes a creature with infinite power, toughness, and flying to boot.

2-The deck is focused on running incredibly fast, if it doesn't it will fail. Even though the mana curve tops at 3, there is still the issue that I need to be able to bring out more than just one card. Every combo requires 2-3 cards that usually cost 3 mana each.

3-Many of the combos require that i have a way to also create infinite mana to keep supplementing the costs of creating things. Such as with Imperious Perfect . This opens up the ability to ensure those combos.

And I run Idyllic Tutor to make sure I can always get an Intruder Alarm . Most of the combos in the deck MUST have that card in order to work, so if i don't have one then I might as well forfeit. This makes it so I have a chance to either draw either and then can bring one to me very quickly. It effectively gives me 7 Intruder Alarm s in my deck.

Thanks again, and if you have any more question or comments feel free to post them.

I choose to run 61 cards because after the math is all done, it gives me a better chance to complete a combo quicker. I spent 3-4 hours running through the statistics of it all (I take a lot of statistics classes to be able to perform the tests and data collection correctly) and It has an average turn completion rate this way that is about 0.14 turns earlier than if i removed a card. This might be simply because of samples being a bit off, but I can be very confident that it is either faster or has no difference at all this way.

If you are going to spend about 200 minutes on figuring that out, I stand by playing 61 cards in this deck.

Coat of Arms would work better than Sigil of the Nayan Gods

1 or 2 Razorverge Thicket for Seachrome Coast? Mana dorks seem important. Also not sure if budget, but fetches, pains, and Horizon Canopy are good lands.

You could replace 1-2 Llanowar Elves with Elvish Mystic so you don't get hit hard by Surgical Extraction. Lastly, haste seems good. I know that's hard to come by without red, so idk. Overall, love the idea, so +1 (I tried testing it but tappedout's shuffling engine seems to be shitting itself)

Also, this deck could use some control to not die to turn 3 win decks and protect its combos. Spell Pierce, Path to Exile, Beast Within (or at least sideboard, even though sideboard is typically against specific common matchups)

You need some kind of Artifact destruction for the side. Maybe Tormod's Crypt as well to stop a chalice from completely shutting this deck out as most of the deck is 3 mana. Nice deck. +1.
