On this new section, To Infinity and Beyond (because everything I write is pun related) I’ll be going over infinite combos in Magic’s past. Most players are quite familiar with Splinter Twin or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker alongside cards like Pestermite and Deceiver Exarch if they’ve been playing formats other than Commander. Commander, however, gives you access to all cards, and therefore, lots of quite fascinating combos.
The combo starts with having Genesis Chamber and Phyrexian Altar in play, and playing Nether Traitor. As you play the Nether Traitor, you get a trigger on Genesis Chamber, which gives you a 1/1 colorless artifact Myr. Then, you sacrifice the Nether Traitor to the Phyrexian Altar, getting 1 black mana. Then you can sacrifice the token to get another black mana, and as the token goes to the graveyard, you can get back the Nether Traitor by paying 1 black mana, and as he comes back into play, you get another 1/1 Myr, and you can infinitely sacrifice both to get infinite mana, and so on.
The only real problem with this combo is that your opponents also get Myr tokens whenever they get creatures. It isn’t a huge deal most of the time, though.
Days where I post To Infinity and Beyond articles, it’s likely that I’ll be posting two of them the same day, as they’re shorter articles.
Until next time,
