Shadowmoor Combos - Clay Schubert (5/13/2008)

Here are 18 casual combos from Shadowmoor. Most of these you can’t play in Standard, (sorry guys), but you are free to play around the kitchen table. With the exception of one combo, these branch outside of the Shadowmoor/Lorwyn block.

1. Chisei , Heart of Oceans + Anything with -1/-1 counters:
Chisei is a 4/4 flyer for 4, who has a very serious drawback. 99% of counters you put on your permanents are good things. Now, with his counter-munching hunger, he’ll keep your persist creatures around longer, and offset the -1/-1 counter theme.

Whenever Augury Adept deals combat damage to a player, reveal the top card of your library and put that card into your hand. You gain life equal to its converted mana cost.

4 damage a turn, gain 4 life, draw a card, AND gain life from that card. Evil. This is the only purely Shadowmoor combo in here, but it’s so evil, I just had to include it.
