or Swords to Plowshares
as you try to win.
- Snapcaster Mage
, if chosen to be in list, can target counter spells or draw spells.
- Mirror entity
and Hermit Druid
come back out and can't be missed with Angel Trigger. They are not necessary, but can be utilized in corner cases.
- Serra Avatar
can be removed from list, but can be a nice fail safe in case you need an extra turn to win. But it make it so you need to draw two cards with Lab Man out rather than one.
- Alternatively, if playing with a Cabal Therapy
in the list, the Survival of the Fittest
combo can be used as well.
back Dread Return

to the graveyard in some other manner). Return Body Double

1. Alternative way to mill entire deck to win through same Hermit Druid
2. Cast Cephalid Illusionist
and card with 0 mana target ability (Nomads-en-Kor, Shuko
or Lightning Greaves
) on the field.
3. With Cephalid Illusionist
on the field, target with 0 Mana Ability card enough times to mill your deck, but not draw yourself out and mill.
- A common misconception is that like Lightning Greaves
, you must have another creature to equip in order to target the Illusionist ad nauseum with Shuko
. This is incorrect. The difference is, Greaves makes the creature it equips untargetable - Shuko
does not. You can have Cephalid Illusionist
as your only creature, and target it a million times with Shuko
. With Lighting Greaves you would need a second creature to go back and forth with Illusionist.
