Combo of the Day
Saproling Cluster Buy + Phyrexian Altar Buy + Fecundity Buy
Get a saproling. Sac for mana (replacement: Ashnod's Altar Buy). Draw a card because the saproling's death triggered Fecundity Buy. Repeat with the mana and card you gained. Result: card cycling engine. Inspired by Kemykal.
