Commander is the most popular format in Magic: the Gathering, and with good reason. It embodies creative deck building, self expression, and allowing for the game to be played in a truly unique fashion. There are thousands of different Commanders out there, but one thing that we’ll all inevitably run into are infinite combos. With the massive card pool, the ability to pull off infinite combos are very real. Here’s our pick for the 10 best infinite combos in Commander.
Honorable Mention: Knowledge Pool + Lavinia, Azorius Renegade
Our Honorable mention goes out to Knowledge Pool and Lavinia, Azorius Renegade. This combo makes it so that your opponents cannot cast any spells. As they try to cast a spell, it will get exiled under Knowledge Pool, and when they try to cast a free spell from under the Pool, Lavinia counters it. There are other cards that can combo with Knowledge Pool, such as Teferi, Time Raveler or Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir.
10. Garth One-Eye + Deadeye Navigator + Anger
The next combo that we have involves Garth One-Eye, Deadeye Navigator and Fervor. Any haste enabler will do, but we picked Fervor. With all of these in play, you can activate Garth to make a Black Lotus, and use that to blink him with Deadeye, netting you 1 mana. You can do this an infinite number of times, and then when you’ve achieved infinite mana, you can then pick Shivan Dragon[tooltips] or [tooltips]Braingeyser 3 times in a row to kill your opponents in 1 shot.
9. Demonic Consultation + Thassa’s Oracle
Next up is Demonic Consultation and Thassa’s Oracle. If you go unchallenged, you will exile your entire deck with Demonic Consultation, and then you can win the game by playing Thassa’s Oracle. You can interchange Consultation with Tainted Pact or Oracle with Jace, Wielder of Mysteries or Laboratory Maniac to achieve the same end goal.
8. Palinchron + Yarok, the Desecrated
Number 8 on the list is Palinchron and Yarok, the Desecrated. With these two, you can generate infinite mana. You’ll want Yarok in play, and when you play Palinchron, both of it’s Untap 7 lands triggers will go on the stack. In response to them you’ll float some mana, let the first resolve, and then tap your lands, and let the 2nd resolve. Then you can bounce Palinchron and repeat the process. What you do from there, we’ll leave to your imagination.
7. Karn, the Great Creator + Mycosynth Lattice
This next one might get you kicked out of your game. Karn, the Great Creator and Mycosynth Lattice creates a board state where your opponents cannot activate any cards, including lands. They cannot cast spells. The only way that they can get out of this is if they have enough creatures to kill you. Since it’s colorless, it can slot into any deck.
6. Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood
The next one here is a classic combo. Sangine Bond and Exquisite Blood plus any negative opponent life change or positive life change for you causes an infinite drain combo. You can replace Sanguine Bond with Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose.
5. Deadeye Navigator + Dockside Extortionist
This next one once again uses Deadeye Navigator, but this time, we’re comboing it with Dockside Extortionist. Assuming that there’s more than 2 artifacts and enchantments on your opponent’s field, you’ll generate infinite mana via treasures. Since we’re in Izzet, there’s plenty of ways to end the game from there.
4. Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder
The next combo is Archangel of Thune and Spike Feeder. With these two in play, you have infinite life by removing one of the +1/+1 counters from Spike Feeder, and an infinitely large board thanks to Archangel putting counters on your team when you gain life. If you time this right and maybe combo it with a mass trample enabler, you can win the game on the spot, but it’s safe to say that this will put you in a great spot.
3. Basalt Monolith + Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy
Number 3 on our list is Basalt Monolith and Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy. With this, we can generate infinite mana by tapping Basalt Monolith for 4 mana with Kinnan, and then untapping Monolith for 3. We can eventually generate enough mana that we can play cards like Chromatic Orrery and then activate Kinnan an infinite number of times.
2. Azami, Lady of Scrolls + Mind Over Matter
Number 2 on our list is a classic as well, Azami, Lady of Scrolls and Mind Over Matter. This classing pairing ends with you drawing your entire library. From there you can win off Laboratory Maniac or Thassa’s Oracle.
1. Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal
Our number 1 combo is Isochron Scepter and Dramatic Reversal. This is another very powerful and iconic commander combo, and with this you can do a ton of different shenanigans. With enough mana rocks, you make infinite mana, and you can activate various tap abilities of creatures or artifacts and infinite number of times. One great card to combo this with is The Chain Veil and Proper Shortcode Usage is:
