Fastest mana accel?

Hi, I was wondering what the fastest mana accel possible might be?

I'm thinking it might be something like..

turn 1, play land, and sakura tribe scout.

turn 2, play land, and lotus cobra, tap sakura tribe scout for another land, use utopia sprawl with cobra mana to enchant one land, or fertile ground, trace of abundance etc.

turn 3, play land, tap sakura tribe scout to play a second land, use lotus cobra to enchant one of the lands, and maybe play a dark steel ignot.

Thats like.. possibly somewhere around 7ish mana on turn 3 or 4, depending on whether you draw the right cards, or also if one of your creatures is equipped with the explorer's scope.

Anyone know of a faster accelerator?


turn 1: land, sol ring, grim monolith

turn 2: land, voltaic key, thran dynamo

turn 3: land, 13 mana?


lotus cobra is nice, but artifacts will always be the king of acceleration.


P.S. if you're talking about a specific format, make sure you say so or you'll get alot of different answers.

Opening hand:

Tolarian Academy, Mox Sapphire, Mox Jet, Mox Ruby, Mox Pearl, Black Lotus, Windfall.

Turn 1: Tolarian Academy, Mox Sapphire, Mox Jet, Mox Ruby, Black Lotus.

Tap Academy for UUUU, Moxes for UBRW.

UUUUUBRW in your mana pool.  Play Windfall, leaving UUUB in your mana pool.

Draw: Twiddle, Yawgmoth's Will, Dark Ritual, Dark Ritual, Metalworker, Lightning Greaves, Staff of Domination.

Play Dark Ritual, Dark Ritual.

UUUBBBBB in your mana pool.   Play Twiddle, untapping Tolarian Academy.  Tap for UUUU.

UUUUUUU BBBBB in your mana pool.  Play Metalworker, Lightning Greaves, equip to Metalworker.

UUUUUU B in your mana pool.  Play Yawgmoth's Will.

Play Dark Ritual, Dark Ritual.

UUUUUU BBBBB in your mana pool.  Play Black Lotus, sacrifice for UUU.   Play Staff of Domination.

UUUUUUUUUBB in your mana pool.  Play Windfall.  Draw: Metalworker, Apocalypse Chime, Alpha Myr, Scarecrow, Door to Nothingness, Leveler, Rocket Launcher.

UUUUUU BB in your mana pool.  Play Metalworker.  Equip with Lightning Greaves, tap to reveal 6 artifacts.  Untap the other Metalworker with Staff of Domination, pay 1 to untap Staff, equip the other Metalworker, tap to reveal 6 artifacts.

Wash, rinse, repeat until you have as much mana as you need.   (If you need a large amount of colored mana, add in Myrs, too, which you can equip and untap with Lightning Greaves and Staff of Domination.)

Infinite mana on turn 1.  (and you can use the Rocket Launcher in your hand to kill your opponent first turn, too)

A much easier way:

Land + Lotus OR Mox + Channel = GG.

A few dark rits, basalt monolith and rings of brighthearth. Infinate.
