At 100 counters, the Helix Fossil answers your prayers.

@Templar314:

Helix Fossil {U}

Shroud

{X}: Put X consultation counters on Helix Fossil.

At the beginning of your upkeep, if there are 100 or more consultation counters on Helix Fossil, you win the game.

ALL HAIL THE HELIX!

How the hell do you get 100 counters onto a piece of cardboard?

@pedrodyl Vampire hexmage doesn't work on this because this has shroud :)

Oh come on, you know it had to be done :P
I love this card. It makes it seem like every game is a race to build the tower. For a fun, flavorful, casual deck, add walls and season to taste.

I've reached 86 counters on this, with an end of turn tap-out spelling a game win...unfortunately, I got killed :P Too bad Time Stretch is only 2 turns...

How about:
Turn 1 Pinnacle
Turn 2 Bloom Tender
Turn 3 Freed From the Real (infinite green mana)
Turn 4 upkeep win.

It's not T2, but the Bloom Tender only needs to live for 2 turns. It might work in casual play.

@ ratchet1215

Even if it required counters to be taken off instead of being put on it the vampire hexmage still wouldn't work. Vampire hexmage has to target the permanent, since Helix pinnacle has shourd that combo wouldn't work.

why would you waste time paying mana to proliferate this when you could just use it's ability to add counters?
now I could see it maybe if you just had proliferate tacked on to a bunch of other affects, but more importantly if you plan on proliferating, darksteel reactor works better.

also to corey, no you don't need something other than lands, play something that pumps all your creatures.

@pedrodyl Now look at the card again, note the keyword "Shroud" and think again.
