Ize19 on List of all infinite combos 2.0

1 week ago

Ok, I have a couple of combos that are pretty versatile, and very easily go infinite. Here they are:

Coretapper + Mimic Vat This combo provides 3 charge counters a turn, every turn, for just 3 mana each time. What makes it infinite? Well, one of the things you can do with 3 counters every turn is take infinite turns. Just put those counters on Magistrate's Scepter, and your opponent will never get another turn. If you want, you could create this combo again, and create as many 9/9s as you like, with Titan Forge, or destroy as many permanents as you like, with Lux Cannon

Dross Scorpion + Myr Turbine + sac outlet. What kind of Infinite combo it is, is determined by the sac outlet.

It's always an Infinite ETB trigger and Infinite Death trigger combo.

Blasting Station and Goblin Bombardment deal infinite damage.

Arcbound Ravager, Megatog, Blood Aspirant, Bloodflow Connoisseur, and Carrion Feeder grow infinite P/T from it (Megatog's growth only lasts the turn, but he also gets trample, so he doesn't need to keep the increase).

Altar of Dementia provides Infinite Mill, Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar give infinite mana.

Hey man, great deck! I know you said no creatures, but there's a combo that fits great in this deck that I think you'd enjoy, but one part is a creature. Coretapper+Mimic Vat is the ultimate charge counter combo: every turn, for just 3 mana, put 3 charge counters on any artifact you want! Lux Cannon or Titan Forge can be set off every turn, it's a lot of fun. Anyway, just a suggestion, you've got my +1 for a fun deck!

Welcome to Magic the Gathering, where magical ..... well, you know Btw. The strategy you are reffering to is known as Aristocrats.

Rings of Brighthearth - Synergizes with your commander. If you are were to add fetchlands (lands which grab other basic lands from the deck) such as Prismatic Vista, Verdant Catacombs and others, you can get 2 lands for each fetchland by using rings. You sacrifice the fetchland putting the ability on the stack, then pay 2 mana and copy the ability with rings.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth - Makes all of your lands, including itself swamps. The reason for this is mainly to help you ramp with Cabal Coffers

Imp's Mischief - This card does a lot of 2 mana. Lots of spells in MTG target. Removal such as Path to Exile, draw spells like Overflowing Insight, extra turns like Time Warp and even Counterspells target. A cool thing you can do aside from redirecting a spell that has 1 target is the following..... You cast your commander, they cast Counterspell, targetting your commander. You then cast imp's mischief, changing the target of the counterspell to imp's mischief. Imp's mischief resolves. Counterspell tries to resolve and counter imp's mischief but because it is removed from the stack, the counterspell does nothing. Then your commander resolves. Very useful card! Do not overlook it!

I see you already have some decent tutors which is good. Tutors ensure consistency, help you get a combo like Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond. They also help you get whatever you need when you need it, it is black's greatest strength in EDH. Now to discuss weaknesses.....

Black has almost no way to get rid of artifacts and enchantments. If an opponent plays Rest in Peace or something similar, you will find yourself in a tough position. As such, having cards such as Blast Zone, Karn Liberated, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Ugin, the Ineffable, Meteor Golem, Ratchet Bomb, Lux Cannon and others can be extremely useful.

I don't know what your meta (the group of people you play with) are like and how powerful their decks are, this seems pretty casual. There are lots of cuts and many more cards you can add depending on what you're going for exactly. If you want ideas of other cards to add and/or what to cut, let me know. Mono black EDH is my favorite.

This list is a decent start but let's look at mono red's weaknesses, card draw and enchantment removal. You have LOTS of cuts to be made, lmk if you want ideas on what to cut or more things to add.

Arch of Orazca - Card draw that only takes a land slot

Commune with Lava - Can be used on end of opponents turns, usually good for 3-5 depending on how much mana you have and your curve.

Endless Atlas - Reuseable, cheap to play, cheap to actives

Hedron Archive - Card draw and ramp

Humble Defector - Draw with politics

Ignite the Future - Very good "draw" as it can be flashbacked

Light Up the Stage - Similar to above

Mind's Eye - Re-useable, fun with wheels

Skullclamp - Cheap easy card draw, fun with myrs

Solemn Simulacrum - Card draw and ramp

Tome of Legends - Your most powerful draw engine in the entire deck

Lastly, with all your enchantments you might want to consider Crystal Chimes

Murderous Rider > Hero downfall

Imp's Mischief - Counters counterspells, redirects removal, redirect some extra turn spells and some draw. Very powerful! > Exlir of immortality

Demonic Tutor or any cheaper variant you desire

You have no artifact or enchantment removal, consider the following....

Nevinyrral's Disk , Oblivion Stone , Blast Zone , Ratchet Bomb , Lux Cannon , Karn Liberated , Ugin, the Spirit Dragon Meteor Golem and Ugin, the Ineffable to deal with RIP and other problematic artifacts/enchantments

Cabal Coffers - ramp , cut temple of false

Deserted Temple - untap coffers , cut bog. If GY shenanigans are prevalent in your meta, then keep it. I would still try to add temple over it because there are other GY hate cards

Imp's Mischief - redirect removal, counter counterspells, redirect some extra turns. All for 2 mana that no1 sees coming. Cut bad moon as it is win more

No Reliquary Tower or Necropotence ???

Your biggest issue at the moment is dealing with artifacts and enchantments. You should add some of the following....

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon

Karn Liberated

Ugin, the Ineffable

Ratchet Bomb

Blast Zone

Meteor Golem

Lux Cannon

Nevinyrral's Disk

Oblivion Stone

If you want more ideas or ideas for cuts lmk

Cabal Coffers for ramp

How do you deal with artifacts and enchantments? Oblivion Stone , Nevinyrral's Disk , Ratchet Bomb , Lux Cannon , Blast Zone , Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and Karn Liberated all come to mind.

Imp's Mischief is "counters" counterspells, redirects removal and some extra turn cards. More importantly, no one expects it from black.

I got some ideas for cuts if you're interested, lmk.
