Deck I've been trying out during eternal celebration. Basic combo is this: Kindo Shadowstep
+ Tome of Horrors
+ Curtain Call
(with the 4 time influence effect) + any discard to start the chain = an infinite discard loop that mills your opponents entire deck in a turn.
I took Kindo surprise
by Fayte87 for a spin but felt it went in too hard on the discard synergy without much payoff and was very susceptible to cards like Teacher of Humility
and Tocas, Waystone Harvester
just ruining your day. So I switched some things around to try and make it a bit more consistent. Here were my changes:
- 4x Tome of Horrors
in main deck instead of market because I felt the combo relied too much on merchants fetching 2/3 of the basic combo pieces.
- 4x Display of Knowledge
is an incredible pick for this deck. basically like having 4 more tome of horrors in your deck and can delay some aggro decks too
- 4x Banish
for more early removal to keep you in the game. Also it gets rid of Tocas, Waystone Harvester
which would otherwise fuck you up.
- Linrei's Kiss
in market for when you need that very last combo piece and can't seem to find it.
- Honor of Claws
instead of Wisdom of the Elders
is a personal choice, either will do.
You want to try and play Tome of Horrors
a turn before and keep it protected with Transpose
or Cobalt Waystone
. if you have at least 1 other card on the board you only need 7 mana to pop off, otherwise you need 9 so you can play Pitfall Trap
Only really played it in casual but by god is it satisfying when it goes off, definitely worth a spin while all cards are available to us! Thanks for reading this guide.
