Polyraptor and Marauding Raptor or anything that deals damage to creatures etb. That's why you have to pack a Swords to Plowshares to cut off your own combo.

DeckResource on It's Never Sunny in Ixalan

Hi drwombat great question on the rule update on infinite loops. I don't know that I have seen a ruling on this (looking now!) but I believe the loop will resolve in this instance because the life total of each opposing player will hit 0 at which point the loop becomes finite because the game ends. This makes it different than say....a Polyraptor loop that doesn't ever reach a win con because you have no way of clearing the stack.

Anyhow, appreciate the kudos on the budget options, I'm always trying to keep a deck list in the $150-200 for commander and/or make use of cards I already own rather than shelling out a ton of cash for an occasional and slight advantage!

I'll definitely take a look at your build to see what things I missed!

Cisab on Vrondiss' mean Dragons

Yeah, there are quite some ways to create infinite combos with indestructible on Vrondiss, Rage of Ancients, could throw out the Strionic Resonator for the Blazing Sunsteel if you want more infinite combos.

Theres also an infinite combo with Polyraptor + Marauding Raptor/AEther Flash and Warstorm Surge/Terror of the Peaks etc and since dinos are nearly dragons... Anyways, if you dont have or lose the pinger there you just have an unstoppable infinite combo which will result in a draw and I did not really like that idea.

Hey, you're welcome, nice changes.

Vigor prevents enrage from happening since it prevents damage dealt to Vron. It's a replacement effect which replaces the damage that is dealt with +1/+1 counters since damage isn't dealt enrage doesn't trigger. Rite of Passage works how you want with Vron because it doesn't prevent damage, but also puts a +1/+1 counter when damage is dealt.

Goblin Bombardment could replace many different cards simply because it's a win condition with Vron that's only two mana. Bombardment is also another card to infinite combo with Polyraptor and it can prevent ending the game in a draw with Marauding Raptor + Polyraptor. Anara, Wolvid Familiar could replace Cacophodon. Is Cacophodon part of a combo that I'm not seeing? Crop Rotation could replace Steel Wall.

Rishkar's Expertise and Return of the Wildspeaker are in the precon and they can draw a lot of cards because Vron starts at 5 power. Return being an instant can be cast not on your turn to fill your hand of cards to choose from to cast on your next turn. These spells are excellent with Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient and Old Gnawbone who can make a ton of mana to cast all the cards you draw.

Expertise and Return are actually better spells here than Kindred Summons because with Vron no matter what you're drawing at least 5 cards. Summons requires that you control many Dragons to get the same amount of value. One advantage of Summons is instant speed to potentially reveal both Gnawbone + Charger, cheating them onto the battlefield, but without a way to arrange these Dragons to the top of your library that will be rare.

Sword of Hours is in the precon and it does a lot with Vron since it's a source of repeatable die roll and a way to make Vron bigger with +1/+1 counters. Some budget lands to consider adding in place of some basic lands: Naya Panorama, Jund Panorama, Bonders' Enclave, Rogue's Passage.


Some changes to consider:

Cool deck idea, I made a deck similar to this mainly focused on Polyraptor and Pestilence. It wasn't quite a combo deck but it basically cycled through the deck with cards like Faithless Looting, then just Animate Dead the Polyraptor cause holy cow 8 mana is a lot, then spam Pestilence abilities for an exponential amount of Polyraptors. Cool idea trying to go infinite with it.

Pikobyte, including Forerunner of the Empire as a Tutor and with 3 triggers can break the infinite Polyraptor loop. Sadly it's not a Dino though. Also, the infinite loop results in a draw. Not a loss.

BrassLord on Mandatory Loop combos (for game …

3 months ago

Hello! I'm trying to brew a bant deck that either contains infinite mandatory loops for the game to end in a draw, or combos that end in everyone losing the game at the same time! Any color combos are welcome! So far I've come across 3 Oblivion Rings (with nothing else to target), Ajani's Chosen + Enchanted Evening, Polyraptor and Marauding Raptor, and Life and Limb + Sporemound. First time posting! All suggestions welcome!

I would suggest adding more Dinos that have "Enrage" in order to take advantage of having 4x Forerunner of the Empire in. For instance, Needletooth Raptor is great for removing small to medium threats. Polyraptor is a great card to take advantage of this, obviously. So is Siegehorn Ceratops , though the Siegehorn doesn't pair well with Marauding Raptor
