Mtg_Mega_Nerds theoretically there’s probably a combo. But it would require an infinite turns combo and gaining at least 10 life a turn. Then though, it really just becomes one of the many things you can do when you have extra turns.

Also, you missed a negative. It’s literally pay to win. I mean, to be fair, that is kind of EDH already in some regards, considering that cards such as Gaea’s Cradle have such high prices.

That said, I do like the idea of somehow getting ahold of one and playing it with friends who were ok with me opening a random pack. Heck, I’d open exclusively Ixylan if that was what my friends wanted. I wouldn’t play this deck for the power. Just for the fun.

In Standard, Fae of Wishes and cards with Learn let you tutor up Lessons. The only formats where you can’t tutor lessons from outside the game are EDH and other formats where sideboards aren’t allowed, such as Brawl (yes best of one on arena allows sideboards for learn-type tutors).

You don’t get to tutor an infinite amount of lessons though. Lessons and other cards you tutor from “outside the game” have to be in your sideboard (limited to 15 cards in most formats, except EDH-type formats, which allow no sideboard, and limited, where your sideboard is all of your card pool that you aren’t using in your main deck).

I remember one time this guy "accidentally" started a 20+ minute Eggs combo on turn-2! But when he finally established the game-ending loop, he apologized for the obscenely long combo, and then just targeted himself so that the rest of the table didn't have to resuffle & start a brand-new game..

Hahahahahahahahaha lol lol lol .....I don't even know where to start with the OP. Mostly it just seems like maybe you have a mono white life gain deck and you're sad that all the new toys don't play well with your deck. Otherwise it just sounds like somebody yelling at the weather cuz it's changing.

Personally I have been talking for almost two weeks now about how excited I am that Strixhaven is finally breaking Magic free of the shackles that the Ravnica block has put on the color pie for like 2 decades. The very essence of this beautiful game is that the cards redefine the rules constantly. If you don't like the change in the tide, just get out of the water, don't yell at the ocean. Magic card design isnt like the law, precedent doesn't necessarily have to dictate future designs.

Coward_Token, the fact that WotC is not treating Exquisite Blood the same as Sanguine Bond is very annoying, considering that one card is far more expensive than is the other, and that a creature version of EB would make perfect sense. I understand that they would wish to avoid an infinite combo with Dina, but there have been many other opportunities to reprint that card, or to make a creature version of it, so I hope that WotC does that, soon.

I have a "new-zilek" EDH deck that I really enjoy. I think he's the best choice for a commander because you can throw a lot of ramp into the deck, play out your whole hand to ramp into Kozilek, and then draw fresh cards. Plus the activated ability is a fun one in commander. Here's my list if you're curious: Kozi Kozi Commander (Colorless Eldrazi EDH)

No idea on 4 or 5-color Eldrazi, but it sounds like a cool idea!

This is just one of multiple infinite mana loops I have in my Kinnan deck I speak so much about ;D

Mcat1999 on Is Anyone Else Feeling Disappointed …

They do, but it's complicated.

You first need Mana in your pool already. Any type. Let's use for this example.

You tap BM for (easier to type that). You have now.

When you UNTAP BM, you pay the and you spend the to copy the UNTAP ability.

In response to Ring's copy, tap BM to add . Ring's resolves and BM untaps. You can now add more.

Now you are back where you started with in the pool and BM tapped with no on the stack.

This is + mana from before, meaning you may now produce .

Would it matter if the card triggered on a creature dying instead...? Say Pawn of Ulamog is on the battlefield when Earthquake hits... does he stick around long enough to put his triggers on the stack? And if yes, I'm assuming the 0/1 eldrazi spawn arrive after the Earthquake has stopped rumbling, and survive the quake?

Is it possible to use it in an infinite combo?

Absolutely, the question is what kind of deckbuilding restrictions you're dealing with. Standard? EDH with it as commander? It varies. Assuming full freedom, Deadeye Navigator and some source of infinite life and you're there. The bigger thing though is just that tbh you really don't need to actually go infinite with it. If you just copy the activated ability a few times, Rings of Brighthearth , Illusionist's Bracers , etc you can get a LOT of mana. Maybe not infinite, but enough that a Torment of Hailfire should close out the game. It doesn't go infinite with Rings, but it does give you another untap, and you can tap all your lands and pool the mana in-between each ability resolving. So if you have say 10 lands, Rings out, and Bracers on Whitherbloom, you can pay 10 life and to untap all of your lands 3 times and get 38 mana. And that's assuming all your lands only produce one mana, and aren't something like a Gaea's Cradle , Cabal Coffers , etc.

I don't think the card is cEDH tier, but it's far from bad.

As for why it doesn't go infinite with Rings, Rings is a triggered ability, it will only trigger once, when you first activate.

Mtg_Mega_Nerds on Is Anyone Else Feeling Disappointed …

But can't you just activate the ability once, copy it with Rings of Brighthearth , untap all lands, copy it again? You are only activating the ability once, copying doesn't count as an activation. The paying 10 life is only to activate the ability, once you copy it, you shouldn't have to pay life right?

Also, if slotted into BUG decks, Kruphix, God of Horizons also holds the mana. So that's three sources available to us.

Big fan. It is a shame that a pure treasure token wins are likely not possible (something like Revel in Riches )

Mtg_Mega_Nerds, to the best of my knowledge there is no infinite combo.

However, there are plenty of ways to abuse her. Another is Mycosynth Lattice and Unwinding Clock to maximize your potential which you can then use to turn the mana into floating with Omnath, Locus of Mana or something that allows it to be turned into counters. The best one I am seeing is Gemstone Array as it does not contain the symbol.

Definitely an interesting deck. I feel like you have too much mana ramp and then you will be left with top decking. I would suggest some cards like Beanstalk Giant , Return of the Wildspeaker , Sylvan Awakening . There's lots of other good cards with landfall triggers and creatures that can turn lands into beefy land creatures. Maybe even cut out a few lands, you're going to have tons of forests anyways once you get your commander out.

I just realized something regarding Gyome, Master Chef . It's a troll that cares about feeding. Do I have to elaborate the memeness any further?

Question to the other users: Which of the commander decks (if any) areyou going to buy? You could deduct from the beginning of my post, I'll go with Witherbloom. Btw, I really like how WotC finally made some actually working new names for the enemy-pairings. These get stuck into one's head pretty easily.

Thanks everyone for giving insight! I now can agree that Beledros Witherbloom is a good card. Is it possible to use it in an infinite combo? Can you just use Rings of Brighthearth and call it a day? Or does that not work because it can only be activated once per turn.

You become the Monarch. You may then Investigate twice, or Learn.

If any users here are familiar with the SCP Foundation - a fictional series to Secure, Contain and Protect anomalous materials, then create one of your favorite SCP into a card.

Otherwise, if you are unfamiliar with the SCP Foundation, make a card that fits the theme of Innistrad that is, at first glance, innocuous but manifests into something truly terrifying. Perhaps use the transform mechanic? Or an equipment / aura that causes immense power at unfathomable cost.

711.10. A double-faced card put onto the battlefield from a zone other than the stack enters the battlefield with its front face up by default.

So no, unfortunately you cannot. As of current, as far as I'm aware, there is no way to play the back side of a Modal Double-Faced Card without actually casting the card onto the stack.

Hello Saccox, Grim Affliction is a card I considered at first, but I think is probably unnecessary since the deck doesn't require -1/-1 counters on lots and lots of creatures for the combo to work. Grim Affliction might be fun in my wither deck, however. Thanks for the upvote! :)

Metroid_Hybrid on Who to lead my Eldrazi …

I'm considering building two different Tribal-Eldrazi Commander decks: one that is Colorless, and one that is not. However the question that has to be answered before I can effectively brew these decks is "which Commander(s) should I use?"

In the case of the -Eldrazi deck, the choice is particularly narrow. Here the old & new printings of Ulamog and Kozilek come to mind. I happen to have a dated/Prerelease foil 'Nulamog', but I think that the draw & countering ability of 'Nuzilek' may provide superior utility in the Command Zone..

On the other hand, the "Rainbow" Eldrazi has a lot more wiggle-room in choice of Commander since... well, there is no colored Legendary Eldrazi. On one hand, the easy choice seems to be Morophon, the Boundless for Rainbow-Tribal. But on the other hand, I also own a copy of all of the 4-color & 2-color partner Commanders from C16. (Only Breya seems out of the question due to the lack of )

Although there will be a far amount of overlap between the two, the defining characteristics will be:

  1. Most, if not all, of the spells from (OGW) with "" in their mana cost, as well as all of the Legendary Titans, will only be found in the Colorless deck..

  2. The colored Eldrazi deck will be very -heavy (for the superior Ramp), and effectively double as a "Devoid-Tribal"..

Very awesome deck! I saw your video deck tech in Youtube, very well explained.

I'm also been collecting slivers from a long time, and whe the First Sliver came out I decided to build the EDH deck with him as commander. (My still unfinished deck: THE FIRST SLIVER EVOLUTION)

Now I'm studying how other players have been building and playing EDH sliver decks to try to improve mine, so thanks for sharing yours!

By the way, what do you think about Kindred Discovery as a draw engine similar to Vanquisher's Banner, but giving you even more card draw, and Patriarch's Bidding as a back-up plan mass reanimation effect?
