Said on Pauper EDH Deck ......


I got some new stuff!

Oh, ok.  I misunderstood.  Sorry.

Capsize is probably the most popular combo payoff.

Fireball and Rolling Thunder can kill multiple players at once if you've got unlimited mana.

Thermo-Alchemist and Firebrand Archer are good outs.  They don't even use the mana you generate.  These work really well if you're using Cloud of Faeries as an alternative Drake.  If you can get two lands that produce three mana, like an Izzet Boilerworks and an island, you won't gain any mana with each iteration of the faeries combo, but you'll generate damage with the Alchemist and/or Archer.

If you've got two of the "return a spell from the graveyard" creatures, you can close out the game with a lightning bolt or any burn spell that hits faces, like you suggested.  First you flicker the Drake and one "return spell" creature until you have enough mana, then you start flickering both "return spell" creatures to get back the bolt and flicker each time.

Freed from the Real gets used in a lot of other combos; pairing that up with a Viridian Longbow, Hermetic Study, or Psionic Gift will get the job done.

Black has a couple creatures that mill on EtB, like Sibsig Host.  If you've got the flicker combo online and no one forces you to draw at instant speed, those can close a game.

This is just what I'm thinking off the top of my head.  I'm sure there are a lot of others, I'm just not very familiar with them - I don't really use them, and I also don't often play against people who use them, I just kind of peripherally know they exist.  

I am on the PDH Homebase Discord Server, though, which contains a lot of folks who are much more knowledgeable about infinite combos than I.  If you remain curious about it, you should join us:

"do you combo with a lightning bolt or a similar burn spell to burn out the table?"

I do not combo at all in this deck 'cause I think combos are boring. I don't even run Drake. If folks want to modify the deck so that it has combos, they can combo with whatever they like in their version. I just beat face with big madness creatures. (I'm a simple man.)

Rhystic Study is just an absurdly good card that should be in every single good blue deck. I hate it.

The Drake combo is Peregrine Drake paired with:
