Mandatory Loop combos (for game to end in draw)

Commander Deck Help forum

Posted on Oct. 17, 2021, 11:11 p.m. by BrassLord

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!

Blood/Bond and Abyssal Persecutor

Painter's Servant, Grindstone and two cards that shuffle themselves in as a replacement effect. Blightsteel Colossus and Darksteel Colossus are the first two that come to mind, but Legacy Weapon, Progenitus, and maybe others would work as well.

If you have too much money and don't want friends, Divine Intervention + Opalescence + Suncleanser.

If you're looking for Bant, that would exclude the Marauding Raptor.

Stuffy Doll, choose yourself, attach Pariah or Pariah's Shield.

Oh, I didn't see it was bant. Scratch every single one of my suggestions.

Gidgetimer Not all, the Painter's Servant + Grindstone + Dark/Blightsteel Colossus is still good.

@ legendofa Gidgetimer those are some good ideas! Thank you! I’d like for them to be bant, but it doesn’t necessarily need to be in those colors! I’ve played stuffy doll before, never thought to target myself lol. I saw Divine intervention, it’s interesting! I don’t think I’d be opposed to proxing cards

I wish Shahrazad was legal, I liked the idea of copying that spell a bunch of times!

I was also looking at Un and play test cards to see if anything in there would be fun to brew around!

There's a way to loop Lich's Mirror. If you can give it to you opponent and kill them. They will get stuck in an endless loop of shuffling

There are so many combos that do this with Luminous Broodmoth and Solemnity. Basically anything that's a 0/0 that enters with x +1/+1 counters on it like Hydras like Feral Hydra. Just make x equal 0 because you can

How about Enchanted Evening + any card that makes a creature when an enchantment ETB's (like Ajani's Chosen) + any subsequent ETB after those pieces are onboard.

I have ended a game in infinite pegasi this way. Include a sac outlet or an Impact Tremors effect to break the loop.

@golgarigirl haha the ajani was one of the first ones I listed, but for sure a decent one! I've only been able to find two creatures like that. Probably will end up working that into the deck because it has a few redundant pieces that are somewhat useful outside of the combo! Also found an animated Day of the Dragons with something that makes enchantments creatures also works into being a mandatory draw!

can use Opalescence with it
this will also make all the lands fall off the board

Been having fun brewing these! Talking about “bad” causal loops. With the brood moth and Solemnity in play, cast Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath. Will draw your deck and all your lands, then put Alchemist's Refuge into play so you can cast cards at instant speed, then play Ormos, Archive Keeper. Just infinite life and card draw replacement! (I mean… at that point lab man or oracle would win the game… but come on his seems more fun!)
