Combo of the Day
Eye of the Storm Buy + Cunning Wish Buy + Seething Song Buy
play eye of the storm. cunning wish for seething song. play seething song. wish gets copied, searching for any red instant that costs 5 or less (like Beacon of Destruction Buy). you now have with and song removed by eye of the storm. play beacon to deal damage to an opponent. it gets removed from the game. then copy it, seething song, and cunning wish. get back the instant, and 5 mana to play it again. infinite damage. only a 2 card combo, since song and beacon can be wished for.
