Infinite combo

by Dimarius on 13 June 2016

Main Deck (60 cards)

Sideboard (0 cards)

No sideboard found.

The owner of this deck hasn't added a sideboard, they probably should...

Submit a list of cards below to bulk import them all into your sideboard. Post one card per line using a format like "4x Birds of Paradise" or "1 Blaze", you can even enter just the card name by itself like "Wrath of God" for single cards.


How to Play

1/2 Turn: Elusive Spellfist/Altar of the Brood

3 Turn: Mirran Spy/Zephyr Scribe

4 Turn: Use Banishing Knack/Retraction Helix on Mirran Spy/Zephyr Scribe, play and return Tormod's Crypt/Spidersilk Net until your Elusive Spellfist gets 9000 dmg (he can't be blocked this turn) or Altar of the Brood mills your opponent's deck.

Deck discussion for Infinite combo

This deck is original, and awesome! How is this not more popular! I'm gonna see if I can make it better, though I probably can't.

After playtesting, I have decided that Day's Undoing is useful as all hell in this deck, also that more of the Spellfist is a suggestion too.

Remand? Also how does it play? What's the plan vs burn?

It plays pretty well, although even with 4 of both wincons you will still need something with a lot of draw power like Days undoing, or maybe find another card with Spellfist's eff or similar (Prowess unblockable idea) and run a playset of that too, because the Altar of the Brood wincon will take a lot more time to win with. Or maybe run a playset of something with a CMC of 2 that has transmute. I have also found that adding red and putting molten nursery and nettle drone makes it a lot more unstable.
When it wins, it wins on average of turn 5 or 6, so you're gonna lose against a properly built infect deck and some of the fastest burn decks, but that can be expected since they're tier one. The reason this deck can be so good is because of large multiplayer all-v-all games, due to the fact that Altar mills everyone at the same time.

I agree with jako. Why Evolving Wilds?

evolving wilds would help you draw your combo pieces faster by getting more land out of your library and onto the field.

Nice to see a modern version of my old standard deck. Nothing like a turn 4 infinite combo to mess around with.

This is combo was already posted and made to the main page in Modern. Credit to the author:

I did a Pauper version myself that I tested and was successful enough against no control decks. I honestly think that works better than the Modern version.

Wow, good eye on this one. I like that you have two different win conditions here, increasing your chance of bombing your opponent with an infinite combo. Plus, Modern legal? This ought to be fun!

similar o how the jeskai ascendency decks worked, although they were lucky enough to get a hexproof creature for their combo. ... how about apostles blessing to fix that? no fun losing to a lightning bolt

well, with multiple copies of banishing knack, you cast it in response onto the creature and bounce in response, but its less effective than running blessing, but makes the deck less constant in getting the combo. Its a tough call, I would test it a bit with that in the sb for burn or jund?

sadly, I would say that if i had unlimted funds, Id buy a jeskai mana base and play acendacy as it only requres you to have the three non-creautres pecies and any creatue, meaning you can play value or control creatures.

Though ill think about the advatages of this combo.

It seems a good idea, but I've never seen this played. So maybe there is some issue with this combo?

0

the issue is tht it requires 3 pieces, whereas better combo decks only require 2 cards that combo.

Its fine that you want people to see your deck please don't post this kind of thing on "hotpage" decks, find an older deck by the user you want to see It and post the link to your deck there. It stops the comments getting clogged up with things like this. :D

Who care's about the 9000+ damage? They're milled by 9000 from Altar of Broods before combat is initiated.

It's a nice infinite combo, but have to have either Knack, or Helix for 1 piece, then your Spy, Spellfist, Scribe pieces, then the artifact that untaps your creature piece. That's 5 pieces that have to be out, for deck to work. In Casual play, kitchen table, the deck will play, compete, win, just fine, in competitive, tournament play tho, the deck will probably play just barely ok, by skin of its teeth.

Any Control, Blitz, Midrange, Speed Burn, Removal decks, will probably likely beat this deck.
And a 2,3 piece combo deck will likely beat this deck.

Also a pure infinite combo wincon deck, where have to get out infinite combo to win, or it will lose, if don't get infinite combo out, has to have not only card draw, deck manipulation, scry, counterspella, but also needs graveyard recursion(get cards back from graveyard back into hand, into play, tutor, search library, at least 1 alternate wincon.

That kind of deck can be hard to build.

So that's why I insert combo's into my deck, instead of be focus of my deck.

My GRW Naya Midrange deck has a Reckoner + Blasphemous Act combo wincon, a Kiki+ Restoration Angel combo win con, removes opponents permanents, has 26 creatures to win with creatures, has ways to get out combo pieces from deck, graveyard, has ways to protect pieces of combos. So it's likely that I am going to get out various interchangeable combo's, protect them, win with them. But even if the combos don't get out, gets stopped, I can still win without the combos.

So take a look at my unloved deck, to see what I am talking about, and to make some comments if you want.

So +1, like your deck for your infinite combo, as a casual, kitchen table deck, tier 1.5, 2, 2.5 deck. But if it's to play in competitive tournament, I think it needs some work. Just my opinionated impression about your deck, and could be wrong, altho don't think I am.

I would replace the Spidersilk Net with Darksteel Relic, since it's harder to remove.

Deck needs more Trinket Mage;

Battered Golem is another possible "untaps upon artifacts" , which might be useful / Possible option.
Take out Mystic Spec. It doesn't replace itself making it a poor cousin of Serum visions; In the remainder of the spots run Mishra's Bauble?

Other 0 cost artifacts might be more handy: Herbal Poultice;

Sure, it's not competitive, but that doesn't mean one shouldn't offer improvements. Often new players get better by incrementally making improvements on a deck, by deepening their knowledge of the card pool. Piloting a netDeck of a top 8 player will teach a new player very little about MTG, because the closed linear nature of Competitive Modern makes it a bad learning tool.
