Monogreen manaaccelleration can use that pretty well. Especially with Omnath.

This card is absolutely insane in my Omnath EDH deck, regularly pumping my mana pool into the triple-digit range. With Seedborn Muse in play, I've gotten up to over 600 floating mana in just a single go around the table with only 12 lands on my board.

To 001010011100101110:

Awesome job, but Black Lotus and Lion's Eye Diamond don't work like that-
you can only get three mana of a single color, not three in any combination you please.

However, that doesn't matter.
Your combo still works and is still insane.

Now calculate the odds of drawing these things in this order ;-)

I like those odds! Builds deck

This combo is perhaps a pinacle of Johnny perfection.

@ Itrymehbest

No, that's not what happens. Here's your situation:

You have a Doubling Cube, 3 forests and 3 islands.

You can have GreenGreenGreen BlueBlueBlue in your mana pool from just the lands. If you used the GreenGreenGreen's for Doubling Cube's ability, you'd get BlueBlueBlue from Doubling Cube. In the end, you'll have BlueBlueBlueBlueBlueBlue in your mana pool.

You can't double mana that you don't add to your mana pool. That's the problem with Doubling Cube: if you don't use it by the end of the current phase, it disappears.

@ Dakotes22

This card is worth anywhere from $2-$6. It's not played heavily in competitive formats, but lots of people play it in EDH.
Also, if you want to know other card prices, go to www.magiccards.info. It shows the low and high prices of cards from different online sellers. Some non-online card stores might use this, while others might use www.Starcitygames.com. This is probably North America's biggest online card store. Other stores might use www.ebay.com as a sou...

So, you saw 001010011100101110's (By the way I thought it was ascii binary, but 18 digits?!) comment, and you saw the probability listed at the bottom and though "Yup, unlikely, just like it looks." How unlikely though in practical terms? Its impractical to think about as it turns out. I am not great at probability, actually its the math I am worst at for some reason, but this all seems pretty basic division/multiplication, so hopefully I did alright:

If you had this deck at the dawn of the universe 13.77 Billion years ago and started shuffling and drawing a new hand every minute from that point, trying to get this arrangement, you would at the present have about a 0.000000000000000000000030936% chance to have drawn it so far.

That's clearly not working well, so you get every single one of the 7.101 billion people on the planet right now a copy of the deck and they chip in, each shuffling and drawing every minute, trying to get that perfect set up. How long would it be until we it ... (see all)

He means that unless you have 7 mana, the fact that it costs 3 mana to use makes it a loss of mana or an equal trade off.
Y= Mana post cube, X=Mana Precube.

I have to agree, it doesn't seem that great seeing as it takes so much mana to do
