buffo on GW Emiel EDH: Combo Toolbox PRIMER

Elasar99 thanks for the comment and thanks for the recommendation! I had actually just recognized a similar combo with Emiel the Blessed , Felidar Guardian , and Gaea's Cradle , but hadn't added it to the primer yet. I haven't tested Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , but I think I'll give it a try. Thanks for the rec and the upvote!

Nice deck.

I don't know if you've have tested this combo on your deck, but I use it on mine and it's another way to get infinite mana. If you're able to get a Devotion to white or green of 6 you can get infinite mana with Felidar Guardian and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx .

Felidar Guardian can blink any permanent, so with a devotion of 6 you can generate enough mana with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to blink the cat with Emiel enough times to get infinite mana.

I like the Restoration Angel + Flickerwisp value engine, and Felidar Guardian could provide an alternate for wisp. Do you find with this list that you're able to blink enough, or do you find yourself wanting more? I am building a similar approach to this, but have also pondered adding recurring engines like Thassa, Deep-Dwelling and Venser, the Sojourner and was wondering if you had considered those.

The fervor to "chase" Thassa's Oracle has faded, while the "chase" for mystical archives is still running hot. Rarely will WotC ban a premier card if thye can target another part of a combo. For example, during Kaladesh, they preferred to ban Felidar Guardian Rather than Saheeli, since planeswalkers are more enticing (and the face of the set).

Sure thing Prospekt. You're mostly right except for this part: "If one is an exiler and one is a blinker, the blinker needs to come in last to exile Yannik or the exiler, whichever is on top". The blinker can come in first as long as it is nested by exiler#1. For example, you could play Felidar Guardian first, then play Faceless Butcher (exiler#1) nesting Felidar. Then when you play Yannik (exiler #2) nesting Butcher, Felidar will return and begin the loop.

To simplify, the first and last creature can be any kind. The second creature has to be an exiler nesting the first. Conveniently you always have access to at least one exiler (Yannik), so in that way it really doesn't matter what the other two creatures are so long as you remember this rule (2nd creature must exile the 1st).

In some situations, you can establish a loop with only two blinkers. For example Felidar Guardian + Restoration Angel can blink each other indefinitely. Payoffs include things like Soul Warden or Good-Fortune Unicorn + Nikara. So this would be an exception to the above rule.

Not sure how different your list is, but in mine there are some creatures with blink effects that don't work as part of an infinite loop (e.g. Charming Prince ) and are only there as a value engine piece. So that's something to keep in mind as well.

Sorry to hear you had a bad experience with your list. It's certainly not an easy deck to pilot and it's a shame some people are so impatient. I hope your future games are more fun!

This is a really cool concept! Changeling Berserker, Hero, and Titan are particularly intriguing with Reaper King. With one of them, 2 other creatures with the same or similar "nesting doll" effect, and Reaper King, you can create a loop where you destroy all your opps' permanents. For example, Changeling Berserker + Mirror Image + Restoration Angel will create such a loop.

One of my pet decks is my Lavinia of the Tenth flicker deck. I love flickering stuff for value and oppression.

For win cons specifically, I use infinite spell/mana combos featuring Archaeomancer + Ghostly Flicker + Peregrine Drake .

There are redundancies of course, so you don’t have to use those only. Mnemonic Wall , Palinchron or Felidar Guardian + Gilded Lotus all work as substitutes.

There’s also the option of Glorious Protector infinite mana combo.

With any of these active, Brain Freeze wins, so do Aetherflux Reservoir and Sentinel Tower . For infinite mana, Capsize or Blue Sun's Zenith will make people scoop/lose. For infinite flicker combos, Venser, Shaper Savant bounces all opposing permanents and will make people scoop.

Lavinia flicker is my deck, though a bit out of date, might give you some good ideas.

Incidentally, Dina, Soul Steeper + EBcreature would be an infinite combo in Standard. Last time that happened, Felidar Guardian got banned.
