Blue Acceleration, FTW!!

Actually, it only produces infinite mana with Palinchron if you can produce 12 mana, which means six islands on the board on the High Tide turn (assuming they're all untapped from an effect like Time Spiral).

Unless, of course, you play another High Tide, which is of course possible with a Time Spiral or two. But now we've assumed alot.

I realize that high Tide has come back as a combo deck, but really as far as Legacy combo decks go, it's a bit slow, and it is basically incapable of a backup plan. Still, the card deserves its fair credit.

Cloud of Faeries is so awesome.

I managed to make a Merfolk Combo deck much like the Elf Combo Deck, except that it used this + permanent untappers and fallowsages to play my deck out consistently by turn 5, then win with a) infinite merfolk tokens, b)decking the opponent, or c) brainfreeze.

One of three playable cards from Fallen Empires, the others being Goblin Grenade and the unholy hymn to Tourach. I guess Basal Thrull is okay as a slow dark ritual that can block. Of course they reprinted this card...in black, because black needed the acceleration. Now the only slow color is red, which somehow doesn't seem right.

@Laguz: Despite not liking the orders at first, I've come to respect them through a couple of nasty beatings. That set frustrates me because a) No playable bombs, b) The power level felt generally neutered, especially in red, which I can't remember getting a single burn spell other than Dwarven Catapult, c)Those cards that weren't neutered were devastating. There was a middle ground, but it was a minority in that set, not the majority it should be.

It's not the worst set by far. Homelands probably was, but I've heard some terrible things about the entire Kamigawa block. Thank... (see all)

Yea there were a few more decent Fallen Empires cards. The cleric orders, definitely, but also Breeding Pit, especially when used with Ebon Praetor or Soul Exchange. Icatian Javeliners is still one of the best white one-drops. Orgg was usable in the right deck. Thelonite Druid was very playable. The thallids/other spore cards and the sac lands (Havenwood Battleground, etc.) weren't bad either.
