rb701 on infinite combo?

3 weeks ago

unfortunately no. replacement/modify effects such as Parallel Lives and Anointed Procession used in tandem are just multipliers; they don't actually react the way you are describing

when it comes to infinite combos, its easiest to compare to simpler ones that fall under 2 categories - controlled and uncontrolled

controlled - Gilded Lotus, Captain of the Mists, and Illusionist's Bracers create a controlled infinite mana combo. so long as i choose to make it happen, it does. while there are lots more like this, it doesn't change the circumstance

uncontrolled - Life and Limb, Sporemound create an uncontrolled combo due to modify and ability. because LaL is turning forests and saprolings into a unified type, and Sporemound triggers due to a land coming in to play, it is a continuous unbreakable loop. in terms of this, when it comes to competitive play, you have to define a limit (ie "i make ten million tokens"); however, you must be able to prove the existence of said limit, or be disqualified. i had this clarified by a local game store whom the owner regularly attends tournaments. when it comes to uncontrolled combos, you want to try to add in an element that allows a slight amount of control through continuous checks - in this case, i used Pandemonium. as each creature came in, it dealt damage to the opponent, and a life check would have to happen

hope this helps

EyelessStarfish on Spore counters {budget}

Love the deck! I have a similar one built with Ghave, Guru of Spores , but I haven't played it in a while since I felt it was underpowered in my usual pods. There are some amazing budget options here that I didn't have/consider for the deck that I'll definitely add to it. The interaction with Life and Limb and Sporemound will be a great surprise for my friends. As far as recommendations, some lands to consider are Oran-Rief, the Vastwood , Mosswort Bridge , Arch of Orazca and the thriving lands. I think that out of these, Oran-Rief is probably the best option because it seems like there are a lot of creatures could enter on one turn, especially with the aforementioned combo.

Life and Limb and Sporemound create an infinite combo, might consider adding, other than that great build!

First of all, what a fun deck! A couple of adjustments - I don't know that you have enough elemental synergy to really get value out of Risen Reef , although I could see where it would be interesting as a target for copying. I think your mana base may need a little work - you have a lot of lands that come in tapped. I would drop Rimewood Falls , Thriving Isle and Thriving Grove , and replace with maybe 1 utility and 2 basics. Here are a few other things you may want to consider for cards to include:

Vedalken AEthermage will search up any Wizard in your deck, including Biovisionary and Adrix and Nev, Twincasters .

Selesnya Eulogist will make copies of any token you have. The keyword Populate definitely may come in handy here.

Sporemound is a repeatable token generator.

Presence of Gond and Intruder Alarm is an infinite token-generating combo.

Rogue's Passage is in pretty much all my commander decks, as is Elixir of Immortality . Never know when a clutch unblockable creature or graveyard reset to prevent drawing out will come in handy.

Other ideas for card draw: Fathom Mage , Elemental Bond , Garruk's Packleader , Soul of the Harvest , Armorcraft Judge , Generous Patron , Regal Force .

Good luck! I bet you will have lots of fun with this deck!

My suggestion is to up the card advantage engines that synergize with Yedora's ability. Evolutionary Leap is fantastic if you are able to turn all your Forests into creatures while Yedora is on the table. In my own build, I all but abandoned the fungus and saproling route aside from the Sporemound combo. Focus on a tribe like elves that can really speed up your board development. Treefolk on the higher end CMC are pretty good because Yedora is a treefolk, which will trigger their abilities. The best card, by far, is Proteus Machine because you can sac it and then flip it over for free once it comes back as a forest. That's infinite triggers for any sacrifice outlet that requires one green mana to activate, let alone free sac outlets like Ashnod's Altar .

Stop the presses!

Public service announcement: infinite land ETBs available for the easy price of:

Kodama of the East Tree + Bounce Land + any landfall token producer (such as Field of the Dead, Scute Swarm, Sporemound, Zendikar's Roil, Omnath, Locus of Rage or Rampaging Baloths).

Stack the triggers so that the Bounce Land returns to hand, the token ETBs from the landfall trigger (from the Bounce Land), and then the Kodama trigger resolves from the token entering the battlefield (CMC 0) allowing you to put a CMC 0 permanent (the Bounce Land you returned to hand) onto the battlefield to start the loop again. The beauty is that this can be stopped at any time.

Unfortunately you can't gain infinite mana without an Amulet of Vigor or Lotus Cobra but this is a big step for the deck. Probably not the most timely seeing as this has probably been out in the open for a while now but it's a chance to look over the focus of the deck and possibly look at adding more tutor or creature tutor effects to try and bring out Kodama of the East Tree or potentially try to find ways to cheat it out as quickly as possible.

Things to be excited for:

Things to be careful of though: Valakut Exploration may cause you to exile your entire deck if you go too deep, but you should be winning on the turn you go off, but don't go for it unless you have the mana to do it.

Either way, Kodama of the East Tree is making its way into this deck. Main thing will be finding the optimal strategy/timing to go off, and how much of a pain it will be to stack the triggers outside of paper magic. Protecting the Kodama will be key to the strategy.

Part of the power is the many ways you can find/play the bouncelands in this deck. I'm still not convinced Rakdos Carnarium is worth it because of the slow mana and colour fixing, two bouncelands should do with the number of tutors, but the question will be whether it is worth it for the MILL value, the chance that you might just flip it into the graveyard and play it from there to go off. Either way it will require some deep thought on how to best balance out this new horizon of potential for Lord Windgrace.

Have you considered Toggo, Goblin Weaponsmith and Kodama of the East Tree as the generals? They have nice landfall synergy and can combo off with a Gruul Turf or Guildless Commons.

These come to mind as well: Stone-Seeder Hierophant, Animist's Awakening, Kamahl's Druidic Vow, Sporemound, Fertilid (has nice synergy with Retreat to Kazandu), Reap and Sow, Pir's Whim, Sylvan Scrying, Elvish Rejuvenator, Scute Swarm, Tunneling Geopede, Spitfire Lagac, Valakut Exploration
