Combos with Braid of Fire

I second that - indeed a very versatile Johnny card.
I'm glad it only costs 2Blue, this mid-game cost is about what a card has to cost for an effect meant to have a use when combined with other cards only. And it only costs a single blue mana, which allows spashing with other colors without getting notable color problems, another upside that doesn't restrict combo range.
The best part is that you even get to decide whether you punish an opponent with a further upkeep (if you run cards like Black Vise or Ebony Owl Netsuke for example), or profit yourself from a second one for you (e.g. if you have an Mirror-Sigil Sergeant or Ivory Crane Netsuke)

This is one of the best combo components with Followed Footsteps. In any deck with upkeep triggers this is a mandatory inclusion.

You better run this with Azor's Elocutors.

So many ways to use this card! Combos off of ANYTHING where good things happen during your upkeep OR bad things happen during your opponent's upkeep. Once you have one or two of these on yourself, drop Braids, Conjurer Adept and abuse her power, or throw one of these on your opponent after they've put Lord of the Pit in play.

One of my favorite decks is built around suspending Reality Strobes and Deep-Sea Krakens and playing these. Let the bounce-fest begin and the big unblockables jump into play fast.

Yes, I'm a Johnny. Is it too obvious?

Possibly my favourite card ever! So many combos... so much potential.
My favourites being the suspend mechanic and , even better, Panoptic Mirror.

This is going in my U/G Saproling deck. The only thing it would cause a problem with is the Phyrexian Soulgorger, but I'll have a few Power Conduits in there to take care of that.

This card is awesome in a Zedruu the Greathearted deck. Enchant yourself then grant control of the aura to another player. Since you're the enchanted player you still get the extra upkeep but it also counts for your lifegain and card draw, which is now doubled thanks to the extra upkeep.

This card is awesome if you abuse it with Sen Triplets in a multiplayer game.
