_Arra_ on Omnath Alt Wins

Hi Rasaru, if you're looking for budget alt win cons and don't mind infinite combos there are a few you could play test all fairly budget friendly. Here are a couple that come to mind.

Sekki, Seasons' Guide combos with both Warstorm Surge and Terror of the Peaks for infinite damage. You can Chord of Calling it at instant speed or Green Sun's Zenith to win if you have either the Warstorm or Terror out.

As Omnath runs Ashnod's Altar you can also try and abuse the classic Nim Deathmantle combo, you could make it work with Titania, Protector of Argoth and a fetch in the graveyard for example.

Depends how janky you want to get haha.

This looks great! I'm liking the Nim Deathmantle/ Ashnod's Altar/ Sengir Autocrat combo as well! And I'm all for that budget. You could probably bring the price lower too if you drop a few of the power staples (Reanimate?), unless you have them already.

Tylord2894 on Nim Deathmantle and mutate?

You will bring back all the creature cards from the mutate pile after paying . Nim Deathmantle will then try to attach itself to all of them, but an Equipment can't become attached to multiple things at once. Instead, you choose which creature the Mantle will become attached to.

Whenever an effect tries to do something with a mutated creature as it would exist in the graveyard, it will find all the pieces to the mutation pile. So, the Mantle will bring back all the creatures that made up the mutation. Then it tries to attach itself to all of them, but you pick which one it will be attached to.

Here are the relevant rules as this interaction is definitely not obvious. (I only quoted the relevant part of 301.5c because it was long and only a bit was needed.)

721.3c If an effect can find the new object that a merged permanent becomes as it leaves the battlefield, it finds all of those objects. (See rule 400.7.) If that effect causes actions to be taken upon those objects, the same actions are taken upon each of them.

301.5c ... An Equipment can’t equip more than one creature. If a spell or ability would cause an Equipment to equip more than one creature, the Equipment’s controller chooses which creature it equips.

Hope this helps!!

How does Nim Deathmantle interact with a mutated creature dying? Is it similar to blinking, where they come back separated, or would I only return to top card?

What do you think about adding Nim Deathmantle ? Great deck btw!

Metachemist on And I'll Pay a Red | Only 5 Red Spells! *PRIMER*

Have you considered Nim Deathmantle ? It combos with the Myr Battlesphere and KCI as a means to create infinite myrs and infinite mana.

It could also be used to protect your Commander from targeted removal/board wipes.

Edited to correct an inaccurate statement on my part

Dictate of Erebos is another Grave Pact. Triskelion is infinite with Mikaeus. Ashnod's Altar and Nim Deathmantle go infinite with Wurmcoil Engine and are just all around excellent to have. They also go infinite with Mikaeus and Kokusho, the Evening Star which is another all around good card in general for this deck. Bloodthrone Vampire is another excellent sacrifice outlet. Also High Market deserves a land slot.

Excellent first draft.

Karmic Guide Ashnod's Altar Nim Deathmantle Fiend Hunter Angelic Renewal Goblin Bombardment Archon of Justice Angel of Serenity Homura, Human Ascendant  Flip

These are some combo pieces and targets to throw that are notable that you are missing. Throwing Angel of Serenity in response to its trigger leaves the 3 targets in exile forever. Sun Titan loops with a sacrifice outlet with the Gift of Immorality you already have or Fiend Hunter or Angelic Renewal. I have a Brion deck as well, although it is the deck I play the least so i have traded out of it a lot since the days it was more powerful.

You will also want Gilded Lotus over some of the lower impace mana rocks there. Hanweir Battlements and Flamekin Village are good lands for granting haste. Rogue's Passage is amazing. High Market for getting rid of some creature you have taken. Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion and Slayers' Stronghold are also incredible.
