luca_barelli dies to spell check.

If you read the rules on phasing, you'd see that phasing doesn't trigger ETB or LTB effects. More or less, you just pretend it isn't there when phased out, like a super-shroud. Now Turn to Mist... would get you nothing (see the next response.)

I'm pretty sure you would succeed at doing nothing. See Magosi, the Waterveil's rulings:

If you somehow activate Magosi's third and fourth abilities during the same turn, the effects will cancel each other out. The turn you skip is the next one you would take, which is the turn created by Magosi's fourth ability. It doesn't matter in which order the abilities resolved.

Now if you could some how Stifle his first abilily, then Unsummon him, you'd get your extra turn. Or you could just play Time Warp for 2BlueBlue less mana and 2 less cards or the broken Time Wal... (see all)

Torpor Orb and Mimic Vat for infinite turns.

Torpor Orb, this, and Eater of Days would make a nice theme deck. With, like, a Magosi, the Waterveil, for flavor. Heck, you could probably run it with the usual Phyrexian Dreadnought + Stifle jankery.

Definitely the most tragic loss to the change of the Phasing rules.

Once upon a time, phasing didn't trigger ETB effects, but did trigger LTB effects. Alas, Wizards noticed that this made no sense and arbitrarily hideously broke a very small number of cards.

When Wormfang Manta enters the battlefield, champion a turn.

You're all working so hard to break this when a simple Stifle will do.

Nightmare Fish Beast? Possibly the best creature type line ever.

Vesuvan Doppelganger or Vesuvan Shapeshifter plus Flickerform and a 3rd creature, or Mistmeadow Witch. On the upside, infinite turns, on the downside, costs a lot of mana and gives them 1 or 2 turns (depending which vesuvan is used) first.

Works like this: Say you have 7 islands, the Mistmeadow Witch and The Vesuvan Dopenganger in play, and Wormfang Manta in your hand. You play the Manta and end your turn. They take 2 turns. then, at the beginning of your upkeep, you make the Doppelganger copy the Manta. You remove Doppelganger With the Witch, giving you an extra turn. When it comes back, it's a doppelganger, not a manta any more, and you can use target and copy the witch to avoid losing a turn. then on your extra turn, change the doppelganger back to the manta. rinse and repeat.

There are definitely better infinite combos in the game than this one in terms of mana cost, utility of underl... (see all)

i thought that an unblocked Galepowder Mage with Wormfang Manta in play means infinite turns but that is wrong.

i think it works with Shapesharer. then you acn either crystal sshard it or give it vanishing or whatever after making it copy the manta.
