Creature — Nightmare

Mutate (If you cast this spell for its mutate cost, put it ontop or underneath target non-Human creature you own. They mutate into the creature that is on top and that creature has all the abilities of every card that is underneath it.)


Whenever this creature mutates, exile the top card of each opponent's library face down. You may look at and play those cards for as long as they remain exiled.

MagicMarc on Infinite Tokens via Awaken the …

As Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker was already mentioned. You can stay in red combining Kiki with Combat Celebrant for infinite creatures.

Staying in Rakdos, if you have Kiki, you can do infinite damage/lifegain/other triggers with this combo: Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Sling-Gang Lieutenant + Thornbite Staff .

Staying in Rakdos, if you already have Sling-gang, you can do infinite lifedrain and other triggers with this combo: Dockside Extortionist + Epitaph Golem + Grenzo, Dungeon Warden + Sling-Gang Lieutenant .

Staying in Rakdos, if you already have Kiki and do want to use Goblin Bombardment you can make infinite Kikis/infinite damage/Other with this combo: Goblin Bombardment + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Mindleecher . Replacing Goblin Bombardment with Impact Tremors will just delete all of your opponents on the ETB triggers.

There are a lot more. Rakdos is probably the best color mix to do exactly what you want.

I do know this. Its just Snapdax has ended up under a Mindleecher or Everquill Phoenix before, as the increase in power can matter with double strike and commander damage.

Gonti, Lord of Luxury is a great card to have in the command zone. Stealing spells is a fun strategy, even mono black has many options...like Enslave, Grave Betrayal, Chaos Wand, Mindleecher, Word of Command, Praetor's Grasp, Dead Man's Chest and Hedonist's Trove.

Mana Crypt is the first card that comes to mind and then I'd steer away from the eldrazi lord strategy. Big chunk of the budget there. Try replacing them with creatures that have useful abilities such has Mindleecher, Vilis, Broker of Blood or lesser eldrazis

abby315 on Meren to Nethroi

The above comment about sums it up for me, unless you were planning to take it in a combo or other kind of direction! Here are some good Nethroi targets that have low power but make tokens or have good effects when they enter:

Biogenic Ooze Blade Splicer Master Splicer
Maul Splicer
Sensor Splicer
Noosegraf Mob
Chittering Witch
Creakwood Liege
Akroan Horse
Deep Forest Hermit
Deranged Hermit
Nut Collector
Geist-Honored Monk
Ghave, Guru of Spores
God-Eternal Oketra
Hornet Queen
Izoni, Thousand-Eyed
Tendershoot Dryad
Trostani Discordant Trostani's Summoner

Most of the above cards create creature tokens, so you'll probably want the usual: Doubling Season, Anointed Procession, Parallel Lives if you include a lot of them.

Here are some 0-power utility creatures to consider, because they're free to reanimate if they get killed:

Arboreal Grazer
Birds of Paradise
Devoted Druid
Incubation Druid
Faeburrow Elder
Custodi Soulbinders
Embodiment of Agonies
Golgari Grave-Troll (also a great include because Dredge can fill your GY)

And you'll also want at least a few additional Mutaters in case you have Nethroi out and want to trigger it again:

Auspicious Starrix
Cavern Whisperer
Dirge Bat
Migratory Greathorn
Sawtusk Demolisher

...all seem like good includes.

Hope this gives you a good place to start and a list of interesting cards to consider. Many are very affordable. Now I kinda want to make a Nethroi deck.

Have fun!

dbpunk on Thoughts on Mutate?

Honestly like that, Sea-Dasher Octopus, Lore Drakkis, Boneyard Lurker and Necropanther all seem like they'll be solid one offs, in addition to the already mentioned ones. Souvenir Snatcher, Cubwarden, Dirge Bat and Mindleecher might see some play in more dedicated mutate decks or in decks that care deeply about their express abilities.

SirQuixano on List of all infinite combos 2.0

(Spoilers for Ikoria)

Well, with Ikoria and Mutate being a thing, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker gets even more infinite combos, so I'll try to list all the new ones (19 of them spoiled so far). Essentially, mutate a nonlegendary creature ontop of Kiki-Jiki, have it copy itself, its copy also has Haste and the copy ability, so rinse and repeat for infinite. If you do this before your untap step, the tokens will be untapped then, although it takes a turn from the mutate usually. There are still other cards that can do stuff with untapped tokens or infinite etbs.

For the Nonenglish Spoilers, I'll just use their number. Sorted by Color Identity.

R- Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Cloudpiercer/Everquill Phoenix

RU - Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Archipelagore/Dreamtail Heron/Pouncing Shoreshark/Souvenir Snatcher

RG - Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Auspicious Starrix/IKO #64/Gemrazer/Glowstone Recluse/IKO #165

RW- Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Huntmaster Liger

RB - Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Cavern Whisperer/Chittering Harvester/Dirge Bat/Insatiable Hemophage/Mindleecher

RUG Identity, RG and/or RU to pull of combo - Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Trumpeting Gnarr

RGB Identity, RG and/or RB to pull of combo - Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + IKO#178
