What creatures in Gruul (if any) can Protean Hulk tutor up to create an infinite combo?

This is assuming nothing else about the board state, commander, or cards in hand.

I initially thought it could do this with Combat Celebrant + Seeker of Skybreak , but I was wrong. Where else might I look?

Protean Hulk states "any number of creature cards with total converted mana cost 6 or less". so it can get 2 or more creatures, you just need to find some that make an infinite loop.

That's what my question is, tho - which ones would they be?

Currently, I've not yet been able to find any in Gruul colors.

Bump - edited the post title for clarification.

You could get Combat Celebrant and Eternal Witness letting you replay hulk (assuming you can save him twice) which then lets you get Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker who does combo with celebrant. You're still looking at a lot of mana but if you used something like Starved Rusalka as your sac outlet, you'd be in the 16 mana ballpark.

Kiki-Jiki is the only one I'm aware of in R/G that works with the Celebrant. You can do it with Aggravated Assault and Savage Ventmaw but obviously you need a way to tutor up the enchantment.

There is a combo in this list


There might be a better way to go about it now but that one works.

enpc, fascinating approach. Goblin Bombardment offers a sac-outlet at zero cost, so I guess the total would be 14 mana.

Still pretty expensive for a single turn, however. I suppose it could be split into 2 turns, tho.

enpc, actually, using Ashnods alter would reduce the mana cost by 2, bringing the total to 12 mana - which is more feasible.
