I found a combo involving Teferi's Isle
« on: February 12, 2020, 02:07:20 pm »
Ok, so I love Teferi's Isle because it's old, phases and the art is beautiful. And here's a combo where it can shine and do thing most lands cannot. We need three pieces for the combo:

Here's how it goes down: tap {mana source} for UU(x). Use one U to untap the {untapper creature} using the {aura}. Now tap {untapper creature} to untap {mana source}. You still have one U left over from the loop that you can either use to generate infinite mana or feed back into the combo to untap anything you wish. This could be another land producing another colour or a rock that produces another colour. Or use Mangara of Corondor arbitrarily many times to exile the entire board. Or you could draw your entire library with Azami, Lady of Scrolls and cast Thassa's Oracle. You get the idea.

Anyway the bottom line is that I've found a use case for Teferi's Isle and I'm so proud of the fact that I decided to share the idea with the world. I hope you've enjoyed this jank.

I was already sold by the time I got here, but I'm a big lover of jank too.

Pemmin's Aura and Freed from the Real are classic combo cards (I'm looking at you Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle, Oasis Ritualist, Krosan Restorer) but this in mono blue is very nice.

Also worth noting if you use Firemind Vessel, you can add infinite mana of every colour except blue, which I think ranks pretty highly on the fun jank scale.
Building a deck are you? Have you considered Ashnod's Altar?

This is really similar to a combo I run in Ezuri. Argothian Elder + Wirewood Lodge + big land (Gaea's Cradle, enchanted land, nykthos, etc...). Always a fun time.
More elves is always the answer.

I'm glad you guys don't 'see a problem' with the combo. Shared the story with Reddit and all they saw was "yeah but XYZ is better" and "there's a problem". They just don't seem to appreciate wild jank.  >:(

Haha yea dude. This combo isn't the most efficient way to do this, but who gives a shit right? We're talking about finding uses for cards that we love even though they are objectively "bad".

That's what jank is all about. Some people just don't appreciate it like we do.

All Hail the Jank!

My current hot pile is Experiment Kraj + Gilder Bairn (with a +1/+1 counter) + Krosan Restorer  (with a +1/+1 counter) + 3 lands that collectively tap for 4+ mana (optional Biomancer's Familiar). Let's Kraj make infinite mana, then use that mana to make a bunch of huge creatures with Kraj's normal tap ability. Then almost anything let's you win

Funny that you should ask. Everyone else here on the forums has seen this because I keep posting it everywhere in hopes of ideas and comments but here goes another time. Sorry for the bloated maybeboard. EDIT: It bothered me so much that I removed the entire maybeboard. Not like I'm going to add back any of those discarded ideas.

I'm in the right community when jank is researched an celebrated. What some people don't understand is that finding uses for all cards, especially the older ones, is far more exciting than running the same shit as everyone else. It should be sought after too as it increases potential variation in all decks and can unlock usability for more commanders. In honor of your achievement, and because I own teferei's isle and soldevi excavations, here is my updated arcades deck. A fine jank deck now with more dumb jank. Please notice that there is a really good card called vanishing. It allows your commander to leave in a time of crisis and be untouchable. Very useful for arcades. It's actually the same thing as teferi's protection, but only for your commander or whoever you want to protect. I does NOT create etb or ltb though. Also, phasing applies to all permanents appleid to creatures being phased, so a snake umbra, for instance, will come right back with it.

Personally I like Reality Ripple because it's one of the few cards that can protect an imprint combo (such as Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter).
