This is quite possibly the single card with the most potential combos. Just look at these comments; they're dripping with auto-card links. I use four of these with Flickering Ward, Eight-and-a-Half-Tails, Angel's Feather, Rune of Protection: White (usually situational cards popular with newbies getting solid, reliable results!), Pentarch Paladin (cheap, repeatable Vindicate), Kithkin Rabble (gets powered up by lands in addition to permanent spells) and Iona, Shield of Emeria. Even without an ability, it's still a playable creature. 1/3 for 2 is pretty much par for the course.

Anyone know what happens when you play Painter's Servant, declare blue, and then play Mycosynth Lattice?

Also, I like to run this with Squee for infinite discard and Jaya Ballard.

So, if this is just the servant, imagine for a moment what the actual painter would do...

Another way to completely mess up the game is Painter's Servant + Gloom + Enchanted Evening.
It will make it so everyone would have to pay 3 to tap stuff for mana. I lol'd when i realized that.

Great sneaky play against equipment like Sword of Fire and Ice that give protection from a color. Name that color and the equipment falls off when equipped.

There are approximately 50,000 cards that combo with this guy.

Which is saying something, as that is roughly 5x the total number of cards that have been printed.

5/5 any day of the week.

I see a red deck and I want it painted black.

Yeah Painter's Servant and Grindstone are pretty much an instant defeat for an opponent. But that combo is incredibly cheap, almost as cheap as an infinite-mana + unpreventable damage spell combo.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
