Description

2 copies of Felidar Guardian can infinitely flicker each other. If you throw in a Panharmonicon you get a bonus flicker that can be used on something else. With Eldrazi Skyspawner for example, you get infinite scion tokens. Doing it with Cloudblazer can draw your entire deck.

I experimented with having a Pious Evangel  Flip or two in the list to gain infinite life (2 guardians+ pious evangel goes infinite without needing Panharmonicon). Ultimately I decided not to run it as most games I was unhappy to draw it early and only wanted after I got my combo going to gain infinite life and threaten to drain my opponent out once flipped. The problem is once I've drawn my library (to stock my hand with counterspells) and created infinite tokens, the infinite life was pretty redundant and since it usually entered the field the turn I went off I couldn't kill them with it until next turn anyway so I might as well swing with my army of scion tokens.

I also messed around with Eldrazi Displacer and while it did work out decently in the deck I reverted back to the current build. In a lot of games I am just a control deck rather than a combo deck and I like displace better for getting value. You can also chain displaces when you cast a gearhulk unlike a displacer.

Rest In Peace Reflector Mage, you in no way deserved to be banned. It should have been Spell Queller. not you.

Drowner of Hope and Eldrazi Displacer with a Panharmonicon out is also infinite....

nolio36, I am aware of that combo however as I said in the description I decided not to the displacer. When I was testing with it, I felt Displace worked just as well while being able to be targeted with gearhulk. This deck functions more of a control deck with the potential to go infinite rather than one that requires the combo. It's fun to go off, but i'd rather have enough dedicated slots to countermagic rather than the drowner/displacer.

just so you know Reflector Mage is now banned in standard which will take effect 1/20/2017. Just a heads up.

Yup Yup. Just wanted make sure people were aware. I agree that reflector mage did not deserve this.

This is a pretty awesome lis, so you get +1 from me. I'd appreciate if you took a look at my flicker deck: Eternal Displaceness (finite combo flicker)
