Abuse the Ooze

Commander / EDH*



Mimeoplasm Combo Deck.

The main combo in the deck is based around Hermit Druid and Necrotic Ooze.

The combo is as follows:

  1. Activate Hermit Druid, putting the entire library into the deck's graveyard. This puts Narcomoeba into play.
  2. Flashback Dread Return by sacrificing three creatures (and unearthing Fatestitcher if needs be) and putting Necrotic Ooze into play.
  3. Pay to give Necrotic Ooze haste (thanks to Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon).
  4. Tap Necrotic Ooze for and untap it by giving it a -1/-1 counter (thanks to Devoted Druid).
  5. Pay and remove the -1/-1 counter from Necrotic Ooze to give it +3/+3 until End of Turn (thanks to Quillspike).
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 indefinitely, making Necrotic Ooze obscenely big.
  7. Tap Necrotic Ooze to deal 1 damage to target player (thanks to Thornwind Faeries) and untap it by putting a -1/-1 counter on it (thanks to Devoted Druid).
  8. Repeat step 7 until your opponents are dead.

This means that once Hermit Druid is in play, the whole combo only needs to work (best case scenario) or an additional to unearth Fatestitcher if there are not enough creatures in play.

The deck also has a fallback combo using Laboratory Maniac and Memory's Journey:

  1. Flashback Memory's Journey putting Reanimate + Gitaxian Probe on top of your library.
  2. Flash Back Deep Analysis drawing both cards.
  3. Reanimate your Laboratory Maniac and cast Gitaxian Probe, drawing out and winning the game.

Or using Yisan, the Wanderer Bard to deploy Devoted Druid, Quillspike and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord to kill all opponents. This combo can be deployed over two turns using Quirion Ranger as the first tutor.

You can also use Death's Shadow + Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon and The Mimeoplasm to go beatdown if required.
