Staff of Domination Discussion

TheVectornaut on Insane ramp idea - please help

I haven't seen as many Staff of Domination combos these days as I did years ago. I imagine that's because the need for a single creature that is tapping to get you 5 mana is on the steep side for a card like this. For instance, Freed from the Real would only need a single Utopia Sprawl on blue instead of 2 Overgrowth to go infinite with a land untapper. I'm also a big fan of Umbral Mantle for this role since it goes infinite with 4 mana produced or gives as much P/T as you want with 3 mana produced. These cards lack the flexibility of the Staff to draw cards, gain life, and tap opposing creatures, but in the right deck, you should probably be able to convert infinite mana into a win without those things anyway.

I will say that infinite combos are best used sparingly in casual settings unless everyone is already on board with the idea. Furthermore, getting infinite mana in ramp might not even be that helpful if you would otherwise be producing enough for your deck to function anyway. This deck already has Primal Surge which negates the need for more than 10 mana when resolved, and it has the combo of Omnath, Locus of Mana and Seedborn Muse which should produce disgusting quantities of the stuff. In other words, going infinite is probably excessive here. If you do go that direction, Karametra's Acolyte suddenly becomes much closer to Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx in power level while not breaking the bank.

twechsler Staff of Domination is famous for "going infinite". You may indeed follow a course of action similar or equal to the one you stated in your comment.

As to it still being a cheap card... many cards are able to go infinite, and the Staff got reprinted in the recent set Commander Legends--which was bought heavily and put a lot of cards into circulation... and that, according to the laws of price and demand, lowered its value significantly :)

Etali, Primal Storm is definitely a card I have my eye on. I must have forgotten to add it to the sideboard but its not only legendary but also costs 6 mana. Another card I thought of is Staff of Domination . Please tell me I'm not wrong but with a forest with 2 Overgrowth or whatever else to equal 5 mana, an Arbor Elf and the staff equals infinite mana??? All I would need is one of the non tap activated abilities like heroes bane, rhonas, nylea's, or omnath to be able to either give a creature infinite power and toughness with trample or just draw the whole deck and swing for infinity. Im not sure if this actually works or if this is legal to do (one thing for sure is my friends would never play again), but if this is how it works this really shouldn't be a 3 dollar card.

arquistar on Osgir, the Reconstructor Conductor of Tokens

I'm toying with a similar build right now. Instead of Mesmeric Orb I'm going with Altar of the Brood for similar effect. I'm also including the Myr package including Myr Galvanizer and Myr Turbine to assemble the package for infinite mana to power the Staff of Domination . I also like the idea of Mana Vault to accelerate to Osgir and then sacrifice and clone it to net 5 mana on a later turn. I feel it's also not a terrible idea to include your favorite "Swords of...". I'm going with Sword of Truth and Justice and Sword of Body and Mind . They're typically lackluster but doubling down on those combat damage triggers sounds spicy.

Thanks for the upvote! I just finished my Osgir deck earlier and this looks like a much more tuned version of mine :o

Few cards that might be worth lookin into are the bauble cycle ( Mishra's Bauble and Urza's Bauble ). Not super powerful, but getting a few more draws for free can't ever hurt, right? I slid in an Ashnod's Coupon in mine as a proxy for Urza's Bauble, but like cmon, you just gotta! That's 3 drinks!! You def are lookin more to be fun, but if you wanna be degenerate sometimes, Osgir is a great place for Zirda, the Dawnwaker and Basalt Monolith to play :D You already got the zirda, chuckin in the monolith and Staff of Domination plus a good ol Mycosynth Lattice means you just get to cast your whole deck and copy every artifact in it! I'm always a fan of all in strategies like that, but whackin somebody with big meaty golems never feels bad..

Keep up the good work!

Combo lines; Commander + Life and Limb / Ambush Commander / Natural Affinity + any sac outlet like alter of dementia (this one is actually game winning) gives you infinite etb and death triggers plus infinite mana. Ways to finish the game after that include Walking Ballista / Goblin Cannon , Soul of the Harvest / Fecundity / Staff of Domination to draw your entire library, Season of Growth / Path of Discovery to scry your way to another wincon, Seed the Land , Genesis Chamber , Scute Swarm , Zendikar's Roil for infinite tokens, Baru, Fist of Krosa for infinitely huge trample creatures, Essence Warden / Retreat to Kazandu for infinite life then hit people with a Squall Line

Hey, Staff of Domination is an infinite mana combo with one of Archdruid, Priest, Marwyn, Channeler when it can make at least five mana. Use infinite mana with Staff to draw/cast/have 10 Elves then use infinite mana with Staff to untap Lathril + 10 Elves infinite times as the win condition. Staff could replace Harvest Season .

Diabolic Intent is another Demonic Tutor. Intent could replace Reclaim . Miara, Thorn of the Glade is in the precon and she triggers when Elf tokens die. Miara could replace Wellwisher .

Good luck with your deck.

Hey there multimedia,

There is no budget for upgrading right now, even tough at the moment this deck is on hold since my Jodah (Jodah Archmage Eternal Budgetish deck is getting a few upgrades recently ( Rhystic Study and Thassa's Oracle so slightly expensive upgrade for that deck)

Copperhorn Scout this card used to be in the deck, but I didn´t really find much use out of it to be honest, but it is certainly in considering cards.

Thank you for your opinion, and I will certainly consider some cards. On card Staff of Domination I had my eyes already before a few times but I always forgot to order that one. So... maybe

Greatest problem this deck actually is going through is that there are no boardwipes and it struggles against flyers. I was considering Nylea's Intervention but that is also just among considering.
