Infinite combinations with Forerunner of the Empire

The combo of Forerunner of the Empire, Raptor Hatchling and then Frilled Deathspitter and Heroic Intervention to inflict infinite damage to your opponent (possible from turn 5), other infinite combos with Bellowing Aegisaur, but I like the idea of going infinite with Polyraptor, Heroic Intervention and Forerunner of the Empire.

Turn 5 Win

Turn 1 - Forest and Commune with Dinosaurs

Turn 2 - Mountain and Drover of the Mighty

Turn 3 - Forest and Forerunner of the Empire

Turn 4 - Plains and Raptor Hatchling

Turn 5 - Mountain and Heroic Intervention and Frilled Deathspitter for infinite damage.

Other infinite combos could occur later in the game....

I'm not sure that Forerunner of the Empire + Heroic Intervention + Frilled Deathspitter creates an infinite damage combo. When you play Frilled Deathspitter it triggers the Forerunner's ping ability once... but not infinite times since you're not creating token creatures that can enter and cause Forerunner to ping again. This does go infinite with Forerunner of the Empire + Heroic Intervention + Raptor Hatchling + Frilled Deathspitter, but this is a harder combo to achieve since it requires 4 cards. You can do this on Turn 5:

T1: Forest, Commune with Dinosaurs

T2: Mountain, Drover of the Mighty

T3: Forest, Raptor Hatchling

T4: Mountain, Forerunner of the Empire

T5: Forest, Frilled Deathspitter & Heroic Intervention

This isn't an infinite combo. I recommend that you focus on the polyraptor combo

i like the idea but you do need things entering from the forerunner trigger to get more rounds of ping off to trigger the enrage. +1 for trying to expand the idea though, definately given me something to think about in my deck.

Sorry Guys,

Got a bit carried away with the idea of going infinite with enrage effects and Forerunner of the Empire and forgot that you need Raptor Hatchling or Polyraptor in there to keep pinging Forerunner.

There are 2 options to prevent damage on the tokens that you produce. I try to start with Heroic Intervention protecting the Forerunner, then either play Saving Grace on your Forerunner, or wait until you have Bellowing Aegisaur on the field. Then go infinite with tokens. I do, however like the idea of producing infinite tokens that might die due to damage and winning with the effect of Frilled Deathspitter
