Banefire, Fanning the Flames, Lava Burst, Wurmcalling. I think you need a few more spells that can take advantage of massive amounts of mana.

Insurrection and Mob Rule before you attack, Strength of the Tajuru during your attack after you get the mana.

Maybe Fanning the Flames over and over

Flameblast Dragon is not particularly useful with this boss. Maybe Primeval Protector, Nessian Boar, Thunderfoot Baloth or Grothama, All-Devouring. Big guys that come out before your boss hits the field

StopShot on What is the best card …

1 year ago

I like coming up with infinite combos and sometimes I wind up with an infinite combo that makes endless colorless mana. I want to know what card is best for sinking all that mana into? While I'm aware that I can use a card like Gemstone Array to make infinite colored mana or I could use a card like Staff of Domination to draw multiple cards, I instead want one card along with my infinite colorless mana and limited color mana to close out the game by doing any of the following:

-

-Dealing infinite damage to all opponents.

-Causing infinite life loss to all opponents.

-Creating infinite creature tokens with haste.

-Forcing all opponents to draw out their decks.

-Exiling all opponents' libraries.

-Forcing all opponents into a "lose the game" condition.

-Meeting a "win the game" condition.

-

I don't consider traditional mill to be a viable way to consistently win the game. Creating infinite tokens without haste I also view as not consistent enough as it gives each opponent the chance to react. Furthermore, infinite life gain isn't viable as commander damage exists.

Of course, without a doubt, Walking Ballista is the clear favorite solution to win the game being able to fit in any deck given its colorless color identity. That being said, I made this thread wanting to know what secondary back-ups would be an apt replacement for Walking Ballista if by some chance it is countered or exiled.

Here are some cards I came up with that work, but I'd like to know from others if I missed any that could do better than these: Aurelia's Fury,, Bloodrite Invoker,, Cogwork Assembler,, Comet Storm,, Conflagrate,, Cut / Ribbons,, Debt to the Deathless,, Dimensional Infiltrator,, Essence Depleter,, Exsanguinate,, Fanning the Flames,, Fireball,, Firecat Blitz,, Goblin Cannon,, Goblin Festival,, Helix Pinnacle,, Oona, Queen of the Fae,, Rolling Thunder,, Tempt with Vengeance,, Torment of Hailfire and Valakut Invoker.

I didn't include any cards that could possibly turn the game into a draw, but I'm still looking for more cards that suit the criteria I've put out.

Love the Chandra tribal.

The Flame of Keld and Akki Lavarunner  Flip are some extra damage cards to think about.

Fanning the Flames is a repeatable damage effect. Shattering Pulse doesn't do damage like Smash to Smithereens, but the buyback might be worth the damage. Vandalblast is another consideration. Subterranean Tremors is also fun.

Light Up the Stage seems like it might be cheap card draw.

With all the rituals Fall of the Titans might make for a good finisher to go along with Comet Storm

To add to your sweepers you may like Starstorm.

C) Other. You cannot splice Desperate Ritual onto Fanning the Flames.

The splice ability on Desperate Ritual only allows you to splice it onto an arcane spell. An arcane spell is a spell that has the Arcane subtype. Examples of cards with the arcane subtype are Goryo's Vengeance or Nourishing Shoal. Since Fanning the Flames does not have the arcane subtype, you cannot splice Desperate Ritual onto it.

What is the interaction between Mizzix of the Izmagnus and Desperate Ritual's splice cost?

Say I have 5 counters on Mizzix of the Izmagnus and I want to cast and buy back Fanning the Flames (2 red, 4 colorless for 1 damage), while casting I use the splice from Desperate Ritual (1 red, 1 colorless) to add 3 red to my mana pool. How does this play out?

A) Pay desperate rituals 1 colorless with Mizzix, resulting in an infinite combo of casting and buying back fanning the flames and splicing desperate ritual, then spending desperate rituals 3 red mana to cast it all again.

or

B) Mizzix can not pay the colorless for desperate ritual and I end up with a repeatable combo for as long as I can cover the 1 colorless from another source.

or

C) Other

Thank you
