Everyone loves combos. Whether you build a deck around a single combo or just drop a couple in a deck to pester your opponents with, you’ve gotta love them. With Mirrodin hitting shelves just under a month and a half ago new decks are surfacing and many more are bound to come. This article has several Mirrodin combos that can be the bases of these upcoming decks. So lets get down to business and start with one of my favorite combos of the set Belching-Goblins.

If the revealed land card was a Mountain, Goblin Charbelcher deals double that damage instead. Put the revealed cards on the bottom of your library in any order.

When Goblin Recruiter comes into play, search your library for any number of Goblin cards you choose. Reveal those cards, then shuffle your library and put them on top of it in any order you choose.

Instant death to target opponent, just cast a recruiter and stack your library with 20 goblins (probably 10 if you are only using mountains) and belch. It’s a turn five game ender with out any mana acceleration. You can use it in multiplayer too by searching for another recruiter with your other 10 goblins, just wait until you draw on your next turn, then belch and recuit.

You and target spell's controller bid life. You start the bidding with a high bid of 1. In turn order, each player may top the high bid. The bidding ends when the high bid stands. The highest bidder loses life equal to the high bid. If you win the bidding, counter that spell.

1: The next time you would draw a card this turn, each opponent discards a card from his or her hand instead.

Finally, we come to the last combo and I like it, I like it a lot. Basically, with Mind’s Eye you’ll draw whenever an opponent does, then you activate the words and discard a card forcing all other players to do the same. As you can imagine you’ll have a lockdown where you opponents can only play instants in no time.

Well, that’s all the combos I’ve found or read about in this set that are deck worthy (at least in casual play) so until next time, have using these and creating your own nasty combos.
