I have abused this with Energy Chambers. It makes people hate you. Fortunately I only have one, and I'm not buying more. I think the deck with 4 Scepters and 4 Energy Chambers would be too irritating to own.

Proliferate has made this absolutely insane! Contagion engine, yes sir!

To speed up the process elaborated by NayBan, you could simply have the scepter out, along with Mimic Vat, and have a coretapper die to it's effect, then it's a 3-mana infinite turn combo without the worry that they'll kill your non-hasty Coretapper.

If you look into adding a color to the combo, Enduring Renewal, Ashnod's Altar, Coretapper and this make infinite turn/counter/storm combo.

Then again Renewal and Cloudstone Curio tend to be the base for just about every storm combo ever, so i guess it's not all that uncommon to see it mentioned.

Prototype Portal with Core tappers imprinted: put one out, wait a turn, put another out, tap then sacrifice your first Core tapper and take another turn. Can now take as many turns as you want, all for 2 mana.

Grand Architect
Gilder Bairn
Magistrate's Scepter

Once all those are in play pay one blue mana to turn Pili-pala blue. Then you pay 4 mana and tap magistrate finally you use Gilder Bairn (and the architect to produce infinite counters) Bam done xD

Vedalken Infuser

This card has been broken in so many ways I wouldn't be surprised if we saw it hit the banned list sometime soon. If it had been a Legendary Artifact, this would be slightly more balanced, but any combination of one of these and two between Power Conduit and Vedalken Infuser (or three scepters and one of either of those) would give you infinite turns. With how easy it is to tutor artifacts in blue, black, and white, and the addition of Copy Artifact, that's not much tougher to pull off than Time Vault/Voltaic Key.

I recognize that it's not seeing play right now, but in terms of legacy legal cards, it's a pretty quick, simple infinite turn combo. And WotC seems to be really, really sensitive about those.

Can go for infinite turns with an untapper.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
