How the Phyrexian Metamorph + Leonin Relic-Warder + Suture Priest combo works.

One of my favorite cards in Standard is Suture Priest, and since this is Combo Week, I decided to talk about a combo that can make you gain an arbitrarily large amount of life using that card.

We need 3 cards to accomplish this: Suture Priest, Leonin Relic-Warder and Phyrexian Metamorph.

  • First, we must control at least one Suture Priest and one Leonin Relic-Warder.
  • The next step consists of copying the Relic-Warder with our Phyrexian Metamorph. When the copy enters the battlefield, its first ability triggers and you choose a target for it, and Suture Priest also triggers. Here is when the Artifact type of our Relic-Warder/Metamorph copy comes in handy, because it is a legal target for its own triggered ability, so it can exile itself.
  • When that ability resolves, the second ability of the just-exiled artifact Leonin Relic-Warder will trigger when it leaves the battlefield, and it will let you return the exiled card (itself) to the battlefield, allowing you to repeat the process as many times as you want.

It is important to remember that if you use a shortcut for this combo, you need to choose a number of iterations. “Infinity” is not a legal choice (but 176 quintillion is fine).
