Abzkaban on Ghave That Bitch an Infinite Combo [Primer]

I agree on Tayam being best in the CZ and why he was never added to the deck before, but his use here would not be to enable combos but to retrieve Earthcraft and Altars from the graveyard. And because I already run Devoted Druid it would be easy enough to do the Tayam combo if opportunity strikes. But again it’s something I’m contemplating and haven’t settled on yet.

Kaya, Geist Hunter only doubles tokens not counters so is more like a Parallel Lives. For what she does I think I’d rather just use Chatterfang. She’s an option if you want that effect, though. I’d still say Illusionist's Bracers is the best budget doubling effect for Ghave.

They could absolutely go in, and they'd be there if I had them. Honestly take your pick for cuts. The deck is pretty flexible as far as what it can live without. Honestly I'd probably cut Doubling Season and Illusionist's Bracers since they're both 5 mana a piece and combo with fewer pieces than everything else. DS also nonbos with persist. It's funny, though, because I've not once been in a situation where I had out DS and wanted to pivot to a persist line. You'd think that would happen more often, but it hasn't really.

Dual lands for pain lands, yes. I forgot I was running any of those still, actually...haha. Next lands I would cut would be the filter lands.

My group is good with proxies as long as I own a physical copy. Actually I think they'd be fine if I just proxied stuff anyway, but I don't want to do that unless it's a full-on cEDH deck. Proxying just allows me to keep my lists built rather than take one apart to play another. Bottom line is if I have a card in my collection, I'm going to play it. Looking at you, Earthcraft.

Hey there, I know that there are cards like Rings of Brighthearth and Illusionist's Bracers, but how do they work when the effect that is being copyied is something with the text "Activate only once each turn" ?

You aren't able to cast two spells with Dauthi Voidwalker using Illusionist's Bracers. Part of the activation cost is sacrificing Dauthi Voidwalker so it won't be on the battlefield anymore to be equipped when the Illusionist's Bracers would trigger.

I have a Dauthi Voidwalker equipped with Illusionist's Bracers. On my opponents turn he Wrath of God the board. Can I use dauthi ability to play two plains that were exiled with his ability?

The actual ability that is copied by Illusionist's Bracers, is choosing a card that hasn't been chosen yet, and creating a copy of it. So by activating Garth One-Eye with the Bracers equipped, you choose two (different) cards to copy out of the list of still available spells.

When the copied card is cast, it has nothing to do with Garth's ability anymore, so you don't get another Braingeyser.

The best way to use the Bracers is probably by making a Black Lotus and a Braingeyser for 3 free extra cards.

Hey a Friend was playing Garth One-Eye attached the Illusionist's Bracers and tapped Garth then cast a Braingeyser for 5

Now does he get another geyser for 5 or does he just get the chance to cast it again.
