Do Brago and Wormfang Manta combo?

Asked by stensiagamekeeper 2 months ago

Here's how I think it would work. Cast Brago, King Eternal then next turn cast Wormfang Manta and attack with Brago. Flicker manta and the triggers should go on the stack at the same time directly after Brago's ability resolves. Choose to put the extra turn first so you skip your next turn but replace it with a turn directly after. Basically you end up taking all of your turns at once.

I'm just worried that "skip your next turn" means "the next time you would take a turn skip it" rather than "yeah you know that specific turn you where going to take directly after this one, well skip that in particular".

P.S. How about with Conjurer's Closet, Deadeye Navigator and Eldrazi Displacer

None of those combo with the Manta, because as you feared, skipping your next turn doesn't mean the game looks into the future and earmarks a specific turn. There's just standing orders to skip a turn the next time you'd be about to. There is no way to get that extra turn without losing a turn, even if the turn you lose is the extra one the Manta grants you on its way out.

An easy way to break this symmetry? Torpor Orb.

Another thing you could do is flicker Oblivion Ring with Brago, targeting your own Manta. Do that every turn, and you should have infinite turns if someone doesn't stop you.

Vesuvan Shapeshifter or Identity Thief would also would make this go infinite. You just have to find a way to make something leave as a Wormfang Manta but enter as something else.
