sliver queen+heart stone+ashnods alter= massive pile of slivers. My friend used to spank me with that combo in the 90's

Don't you only need two karmic guides?

Have an altar out, cast a guide with one in your gy, put the trigger on the stack targeting the one in the gy. Then sacrifice her to the altar (2 mana floating). The trigger resolves, returning a guide. Trigger on the stack, targeting the first one, then sacrifice it to the altar (more mana). Ability resolves. Rinse and repeat for infinite mana (and 2 guides, like anyone cares at that point).

Such a great card, there's way too many combos too list.

Can't forget the infinite creature loop with 2 Myr Retrievers for your lethal Grapeshot. Don't forget your Disciple of the Vault for a second win, or throw in an Etherium Sculptor to win with your Banefire. The combos with this card are brutal.

Still a fine mana engine to this day, and far, far better than the utter dreck which is Blood Funnel.

Got army of saprolings?
Got Blaze?

I can see this having the most use in a Jund deck with Sprouting Thrinaxes, Disintegrates, Dragon Appeasements, and Ivy Elemental, for good measure.

This is a great artifact, not as good as Krark-Clan Ironworks is with Artifacts, but still an excellent card...

Infinite colorless mana with Ashnod's Altar, and three Karmic Guides, thow in a Farrelite Priest if you want white mana.

So many silly things can be done with this card.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
