Most hell like stack ever?

So... a deck of mine brought up the concern of Mizzix's Mastery and Hive Mind

Hypothetically speaking, if I had Hive Mind and Eye of the Storm out, and cast Mizzix's Mastery while each player had say 10 instants and sorceries in yard,this this would cause up to 1000 entities on the stack...

My question: can anyone think of a more hell like interaction with 3 or fewer cards that doesn't create an infinite loop?

Grip of Chaos

Everyone else will ragequit. I've seen it happen. Hive mind, eye of the storm and grip of chaos.

The targets and triggers were uncountable. It was pretty amazeballs.

One of the guys I went to university with told me about a deck of his which would use Eye of the Storm + Spellshift in a deck full of instants/soceries to cast the entire deck. That plus sorm cards makes for a big and convoluted stack.

Several years ago, I once put together Zedruu the Greathearted chaos and the game became hellish with just Possibility Storm out. I could never sit down at a table with the above cards in play. There's legitimately nothing I loathe more in the game than chaos decks.

You can always add Knowledge Pool to make all else even more complicated I guess

Knowledge pool wouldn't do anything with that interaction. Owing to the way the other ones work, pool wouldn't really do much as most of them are not being cast from hand.

Interesting idea though

Ruric Thar + Possibility storm is a two card combo that causes a more hell like interaction. Every single targeted removal spell deals 6, then possibility storm triggers, they get a random card put on the stack, and take another 6. And then Ruric thar... attacks for another 6. So there ya go. Two card combo, 666 damage. More hellish.

I used to be all on the chaos deck train, but I've started to shy away from any chaos cards that don't help the game plan (ex. Possibility Storm in Mishra, Thieves' Auction in Zo-Zu, etc). That being said, you can often have fun and crazy stacks even in "normal" games.

Ex. Last week, I was playing Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper and there was a 4-color lands deck with The Gitrog Monster and Squandered Resources out. I was saccing things to Phyrexian Plaguelord to try and kill the frog, and we spent a good ten minutes each of us sacrificing permanents for value to get each other, and then he cast Second Sunrise and we did it all over again. It was a bit of a headache to work through how much value we could get, but at least 2 people at that table had fun with it.

I love grip of chaos. I had a game in which my grip of chaos redirected a draw 100 spell back to its caster, it was hilarious. That person never wanted to play against me again thought :/

SteelSentry this is in a nekusar deck, where all the sudden there are a lot of wheels happening
