Omniscience_is_life on Untap/tap mechanic infinite combo

2 weeks ago

There are several combos of the sort you speak:

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker+Vizier of Tumbling Sands= Kiki, make a Vizier, the new Vizier to untap Kiki, repeat.

Simic Growth Chamber/Azorius Chancery/any bounce land with blue+Vizier of Tumbling Sands+Pemmin's Aura/Freed from the Real= land, float two, Vizier, untap land, use one floating to untap Vizier with aura, repeat.

The old Freed from the Reel is still very potent in Tasigur. Also, we have aay better dorks and enablers now. Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy with any dork that creates any color is unbound mana. Fatestitcher/Vizier of Tumbling Sands with Simic Growth Chamber does the trick too. Krosan Restorer with threshold gets there too. Wirewood Channeler and Argothian Elder are pretty cool too. Oh and Bloom Tender is at an all time low right now - you probably get the idea. Also, if you haven't you should take a look at pastigur, Cameron from the lab maniacs did an awesome job on that list even if its dated itll probably still hold it's own or at the very least be the fun police.

Here's what I mean! On turn 1 if I'm luckky I can have any of Arboreal Grazer , Diabolic Tutor , a land--especially Mana Confluence , Aether Hub or Thespian's Stage or Lotus Field , or Wishclaw Talisman with or without Leave / Chance and/or Skybind or Vizier of Tumbling Sands . I can cast Wishclaw Talisman on turn 2, or bounce it with Leave / Chance on turn 3, Vizier of Tumbling Sands on turn 3, Diabolic Tutor on turn 4, and Arboreal Grazer as many times until I get enough for Lotus Field , which I will probably have an abundance of lands, just need to draw Lotus Field .

Diabolic Tutor , as a last resort card, on turn 4 at most, importantly, will give me what i need for either Lotus Field or Wishclaw Talisman . When I get either of these, I can use Wishclaw Talisman and tutor a Leave / Chance , or Skybind and any other card if I don't mind the opponent using it, which could be a Vizier of Tumbling Sands or Hidden Strings ; or hopefully already have a Hidden Strings with a Vizier of Tumbling Sands that I can use with my Lotus Field . However, if I tutor a skybind, it will require at least 5 mana for skybind, which is prohibitive on the game's tempo, but even pure wishclaw/skybind decks face this. If I use Lotus Field and tap/untap early, I can get enough mana for skybind easily.

Generally most people who play this lotus storm combo, are relying on land ramp to get to enough mana for a lotus field. This means that on turn 1 they really need to draw a Arboreal Grazer and/or a Elvish Reclaimer , and Elvish Reclaimer is a very nice card! Although, it is only useful on turn 3 which this card has the upside of tutoring one lotus field for those mana. Its use of 2 mana and sacrificing 1 land leaves one less land in the graveyard compared to using lotus field itself with 3 mana, which can be useful, and if we gain one more land, it can be used again!

Lotus Ramp Example List:

Example curve:

  • t1 land, Elvish Reclaimer

  • t2 land, sylvan scrying

  • t3 land, Kiora

  • t4 use Reclaimer to jam Lotus, untap lotus with Kiora, Pore over the pages and Vizer to sift through your deck a bunch of times until you can jam Pelakka wurm.

That is, of course, a rough draft.

Wishclaw Blink exmaple deck:

Plus some stuff, get to 80 cards, add Yorion in SB as companion, eventually win with token flood.

I want you to look at those too first-draft fairly optimized decks. Take a really good look. I want you to count the number of cards that are in both decks.

Now, I want you to do this exercise: guess how many cards in the lotus ramp deck can go in the wishclaw deck, and how many cards from the wishclaw deck can go in the lotus ramp deck.

Tell me your answer, and we'll see if you're right.

Would Survivors' Encampment work with Vizier of Tumbling Sands to where when i use the former to tap the latter, it automatically uses the latter's tapping ability? Or are these separate abilities?

@multimedia: Thanks for the Tips. I will include some of your suggestions in the Future, especially Fierce Empath , Garruk's Uprising , Path of Ancestry and Shared Summons . I won't include Kiora's Follower or Vizier of Tumbling Sands because I'm not a Fan of Untapper.

@SuckassBolas: Koma, Cosmos Serpent and Hydroid Krasis are both at the Top of my Wants list for this Deck and Koma is already on its way, so that I can include it in the near Future.

@kurban1213: Thanks for your Suggestions. The whole thing around islandwalk was something I played in the first version of this Deck as it resolved around Tromokratis , but it wasn't very useful. Considering Evasion I'm currently trying to use Garruk's Uprising . Dark Depths is not bad, but I think it won't fit in this Deck. Thespian's Stage is something I consider including.

I'm sure I will be able to give an update on this Deck in one or two weeks time.
