I'd suggest Mimic Vat Because you can go infinite with two mana producing myr and two Myr Galvanizer's

Ize19 on List of all infinite combos 2.0

4 days 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.

I would definitely suggest adding in Mimic Vat. It's incredibly flexible, and you can Populate the token and keep that copy. The tokens from Desolation Twin and Phyrexian Processor can be hilarious with Trostani. Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage can Populate multiple times so I'd try to find a space for it. And Phyrexian Rebirth is a great wrath for this deck.

I agree with the first post regarding Explosive Vegetation. I'd personally run Rampant Growth, but if not I'd recommend swapping it for Circuitous Route since it can also find the guildgate, or Skyshroud Claim since you get those lands untapped and it can find duals (in which case I'd also add in Scattered Groves and Temple Garden if possible).

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the big token doublers: Anointed Procession, Parallel Lives, Doubling Season, and Rhys the Redeemed. But since this is a deck for someone else who's new to the game I can understand why you might not want to include those. But they're always worth mentioning for anything that churns out tokens.

I hope some of that helps : )

ManaPickler on Karlov, Leader of the Ghost Mafia

Hey COOZCOOZCOOZ, saw the new updates and it's looking good. I'm definetly gonna have to pick up a Shadowspear for my list. And was wondering if you've tried Daxos, Blessed by the Sun yet? I just added him to my list but haven't seen him in action yet.

I would strongly recommend cutting Erebos, God of the Dead, he was an early cut for me. All of the playgroups I've been in have always been able to steal or clone efficiently and it's rough to get shutdown by your own card. Also, Divinity of Pride would always seem to force a board wipe when I ran it and I couldn't gain anything from running it. And Obzedat's Aid and/or Unburial Rites could easily be switched out for things like Whip of Erebos or Mimic Vat if your looking to repeatedly reanimate.

Some cards I have found to really work with any playgroup are Leonin Elder, Golem's Heart and Paradise Plume. And it took me awhile, but I finally got my hands on an O-Naginata, as I've tried to focus my equipment package towards trample and low equip costs. Also, where's Panharmonicon???? Card was made for things like soul sister's package.

Anyways, my recommendations are based on my games and playgroups. Hope this helps.

Clintone on How do Cryptoplasm and similar ...

1 week ago

Let's say I just put a Cryptoplasm and a Cryptic Annelid and a Watcher for Tomorrow card into play. On my next turn, I choose to make Cryptoplasm into a copy of the Cryptic Annelid. Cryptic Annelid reads: "When Cryptic Annelid comes into play, scry 1, then scry 2, then scry 3."

Would Cryptoplasm changing into a copy of the Cryptic Annelid count as a new Cryptic Annelid coming into play and allow me to engage in the aforementioned scrying each time it happens?

What if I use a Mimic Vat ability to create a copy of Watcher for Tomorrow every turn that will be exiled at the start of the next end step. Watcher for Tomorrow has a hideaway ability that lets me exile a card from my deck when Watcher for Tomorrow enters play then place it into my hand when Watcher for Tomorrow leaves play.

Could I use Mimic Vat and Watcher for Tomorrow to gain a new card every turn that way?

Finally, going back to the Cryptoplasm, could I, each turn, alternate between making Cryptoplasm into a copy of the Watcher for Tomorrow card, then the Cryptic Annelid card, and back again, scrying with the Cryptic Annelid ability, then gaining a card with the Watcher for Tomorrow ability every turn after that so long as the three cards are in play?
