I hope all this helps you to see things in a greater light—and understand that Magic: the Gathering was really created by extraterrestials using Richard Garfield as a medium. The game itself reflects the socio-psycho realtivity between living beings, and the science that takes precedence over them—to define reality for them all (like telekinesis, weather, scientific reaction, phenomenon, ingenuity, how the brain works, etc.). I'd also bet there is an entity floating thousands of miles above us, looking down on the current state of game, shaking its fist like... "Wtf are you doing?! You're getting it all screwed up!". Awkward—to be evolved, and yet still subject to the ladder that is the concepts of the game. In this case, misconception, corruption, and deception. With the realities of each color becoming distorted (through oblivious designers), leading the game to reflect a false state of reality that warps the understanding that other people have about those things. For example, people thinking that white could be anything except pure good. This shouldn't be too far off though, I mean...Magic is designed based on reality after all, so that entity (those entities) should be subject to those things. Anyways, I guess when you're busy doing space stuff you can't always be around to ensure quality control. It's no wonder they choose Garfield, they're so much alike; that's exactly what happened to him and Magic.

I really like Magma Axe. It makes me sad that kind of thing wasn't explored in RtR.

I'm not sure how Conspire is supposed to work. How does encoding it help you?

You are aware that this is a two card win combo, yes?

EDIT: Actually, Biovisionary works with 4 on the battlefield, not 3. Sorry, sorry, nothing to see here. 
It's usually hard the get a 2 card combo

white gets away with anything in the name of righteousness

I made a stupid.  For some reason I thought that you could stack the triggers in such a way as to let it copy another encoded spell. I'll rewrite the card to make it work.

So it's not a 2 card combo, and even if it were, it would be just worse than splinter twin pestermite because you don't have kiki-jiki and deceiver exarch/resto angel for redundancy, you can't flash in 1 combo piece eot to prevent sorcery speed removal, and you need to spend 6 mana, which means you're going off later, much later if you want to keep up countermagic or the ability to pay for mana leak/spell pierce.

Three-card win, which I'm okay with, so long as it isn't "swamp, ritual, black three-drop".

Everyone on this forum is paranoid of combo.  Remember, there are much cheaper and more tutorable combos out there.  Anyways, can we talk about the cards?

Combo is the best.
