Looking For Infinite Combos With Mistform Ultimus

Commander (EDH) forum

Posted on Dec. 6, 2015, 12:02 a.m. by Necrotize

I've been wracking my brain recently trying to find some way to break this commander. Basically looking for lord creatures or other cards that grant some combination of abilities to Mistform Ultimus that allows for an infinite combo.

Looking around, the only notable interaction that seems even remotely common is Mistform Ultimus + Oathkeeper, Takeno's Daisho + Wanderwine Prophets but that's situational at best.

Thought maybe there was something simple I was overlooking and a fresh perspective might help.

Here are cards that I think may be part of some sort of engine, but I can't fully piece them together yet.

Myr Galvanizer

Faces of the Past

Psychic Trance and some weird thing with Lullmage Mentor

Psionic Sliver

Telekinetic Sliver

Mnemonic Sliver

Screeching Sliver

Intruder Alarm

Again, this might be some convoluted pipe dream, but I figured I'd ask.

Mistform Ultimus + Oathkeeper, Takeno's Daisho + Wanderwine Prophets

in what way does this go infinite? this doesnt make any sense, especially wanderwine guy removes mistform from the game.

You would champion another merfolk. So you have Oathkeeper, Takeno's Daisho equipped to Mistform Ultimus, move to combat and Wanderwine Prophets miraculously get combat damage through. You sac Mistform Ultimus to take an extra turn and the Oathkeeper returns Mistform to the battlefield, ready to do this again on the extra turn.

But Faces of the Past could achieve infinite sacrifice triggers with Nim Deathmantle and some myr mana weenies.

What about Myr Galvanizer and Quicksilver Elemental? Use Unnatural Selection to make Q.E. a Myr, and give some sort of tap ability to Mistform Ultimus?

Those are nice interactions, and similar effects can be achieved by cloning Myr Galvanizer, but the issue is that it isn't infinite because you still need 1 mana every time you want to untap all myr. I've been looking around, but there don't appear to be any blue lords/cards that give Mistform the ability to untap itself for free by way of things like Intruder Alarm or Faces of the Past.

It just keeps coming down to "with infinite mana, this is combo can go off", but at that point there are much more effective things to do with infinite mana than using Mistform Ultimus.

im not trying to disuade you from combo, but why worry about comboing with it when it synergizes so well with sch little effort?
