Post Who remembers old school open combos?
I have been enjoying going thru the old forums looking up deck lists and combos. I was hoping that anyone still around might post some memorable ones. It can be a bit difficult finding them after all these years.

Post Re: Who remembers old school open combos?
Great question. Open combos as in combos that were played prior to CE or open combos as in combos that would not be Ancients legal? If it's Open combos prior to CE, then I can't help you too much without doing some research in said magazines, as I started halfway through CE. I can tell you that a lot of the cool Open combos involved Super Friends (meaning more than one Warlord in your deck), which isn't legal anymore. They are also also mostly made cooler/better with cards from CE and EE.

Infinite combos or just cards with synergy that people played?

Post Re: Who remembers old school open combos?
I am looking for any combos at any time that people remember. It's getting harder to remember those from old days :( It can be infinite combos, great synergy, warlord combos... doesn't matter...

I want to pretend 4E didn't exsist, so any and all cards prior to that. Just looking to get a big discussion here for anyone that wants to search for this specific topic in one post :)



Wasn't there a infinite combo with Benedric? Cant remember...

You're probably thinking Havelin-Blood Oath-Fields of bone-Benedric

Not exactly infinite, but with the potential to become so with Remorna

You can always take a gander at the ban list for ancients to remind yourself of any infinite combos that were too easy to pull off. Things like:

Ring of piercing-The Restless-Children of Yscar (Played with Bershar Nin worked nicely)

Hex Starsmore-Sword of Chaos-The Bastion of Bascaron

Brother Averil-Raylor

Lilah-Dorath-something to stop you from losing when Dorath leaves play (tavon, change of leadership, inspired leadership, etc.)-Potentially a Temple of Lore or something so that Lilah will enter play in the second rank and be able to do ranged strikes there instead...

Boost someones level/casting level with stuff-Phantasm-Je'lial-Severed of bone/Consume from whithin

Dark Reserve Cohort-Jautya Syne-Tanfess-sh-Lava Gargoyle

Bescez-Killing Strike-Find a way to stun their warlord

Dragon/Orm drop with Allisara

Xod (Yes, he's his own combo. After that promotion from General to King he just became crazy!)

Uhm...I could probably think of more if I tried harder...
