With Avatar of Woe out, equip Thornbite Staff to it and whenever it taps to kill a creature it gets untapped.

A combo we stumbled across in lorwyn draft is similar. Turn two thornbite staff into turn three moonglove changeling (and the staff equips for free). Then you can pay the deathtouch activation and pay 2 mana to kill any creature, untap and repeat. More mana intensive for the killing but moonglove hits the table a lot quicker than avatar.

Indestructibility? Shroud? Were these abilities not invented when this combo was made?

Mike D this site isnt for saying what cards break a combo. Its about posting possible ones. This is magic everything can be prevented and we all know this. Going around saying cards to destroy combos is not contributing at all. LTPost

Also i think this combo could be sped up mono black with cards like entomb and basic destroy creature cards, heck even a crypt rat on the 4th turn could get almost 10 creatures in the graveyard depending on the opponents deck your playing (maybe elves?)

Force of will, and Obliterate, takes care of just about every combo I found.

Thornbite staff actually gives the equip creature 2 abilities -the activated ability is to pay 2 tap and do damage.  The other ability is when a creature goes to grave untap this.  Look at he text, I bolded and enlarged the keyword:

Equipped creature has "2, Tap: This creature deals 1 damage to target creature or player" and "Whenever a creature is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, untap this creature."


While the staff does give both abilitys they are actually independent of each other, evidenced by the quotation marks surronding both phrases, if they relyed on each other they would be in quotion marks together.
