After you have 6 swamps on the table, attach the sword to the Magus. You will now be able to contnuously Tap/Untap Magus for Infinite Black mana! Then you Consume Spirit opponent for the win! IMO, this is a good, but not GREAT combo since u have to wait for 6 swamps to be dropped. So something like a Wayfarer's Baubble and/or Wanderer's Twig will definitely help speed things up. :-)

Nice combo! You can also do this with Umbral Mantle, and Priests of Titania. It works!

other Things that would speed it up are Summer's Bloom with Journey of Discovery or Amarilly Sphere. If you have Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth in play you can grab any land to keep the ramp up. Also, the Crucible of Worlds + Terramorphic Expanse combo works well here too ;)

im a bit new, but cant you use dark ritual so you can get the infinite black mana out faster without having at least 6 swamps? or does that not work?

you would need 6 swamps to break the positive feedback loop.

That magus' ability costs (2), which will put x amount of black mana into your mana pool depending on the number of swamps.

it costs (3) for the equipment to untap the magus. Therefore, with 6 swamps, you will spend 5 to reset the conditions, and have an extramana in your mana pool.

dark ritual will help you cast things faster, but it doesn't count as having 3 swamps in play.

Ephemerance and babygoats,

Adding Dark Ritual would disqualify this deck from EXTENDED format, which what I mostly play on mtgo. The cards I use to make it work with less than 6 swamps is EXTRAPLANAR LENS. I also use Solemn Simulacrum & Wayfarer's Bauuble to fetch swamps.

but ColtonPower,

Extraplanar Lens wouldn't work to reduce the requirement. You still need 6 swamps to break even with the Magus' ability. It doesn't matter how much mana your swamps can produce, that's not what the ability checks for.
