Your army is gone, now gimme mine back.
Worldgorger Dragon Buy + Reins of Power Buy + Animate Dead Buy
Animate Dead isn't needed but if you don't have it it takes 10 to do. Use Reins to get your opponents army in your control and put out Dragon, opponents army is removed from game and end of turn you get your army back and opponent gets screwed.

What about the fact that Animate Dead Buy creates the loop with Worldgorger Dragon Buy? Unless you have Ghitu Fire Buy or Stroke of Genius Buy (or equivalent) the game is a draw.

The Animate Dead Buy actually makes this NOT work. You would need to "hard" cast the Worldgorger Dragon Buy AND the Reigns of Power. Otherwise either the loop will occur or the dragon ends up in the graveyard and they get their creatures back.

Well Breath of Life Buy would make it a little cheeper, ( 8 mana instead of 10 ) and not cause a loop.

Hey, how patriotic, a red, white, and blue combo.
hehehe.

doesn't reanimating another creature and leaving the dragon out stop the combo?

Only good if you're both playing creature decks. Otherwise they lose their creatures but you lose your lands, enchantments, and artifacts. Worldgorger Dragon removes all permanents, not just creatures. Hopefully your opponent will be dead before he can do anything.

After you play Reins of Power Buy, attack with the creatures you take from your opponent, then reanimate the dragon. Your opponent will be hurting for sure.

A good reanimating combo is: Dark Ritual Buy + Entomb Buy + Exhume Buy.

Reanimate Buy would also work, if you could find a way to get the dragon into your graveyard cheaply...IE: Entomb Buy, Buried Alive Buy, Intuition Buy, etc., etc...

The mods are right, however. It was something I was going to bring up until I'd noticed they had. Using Animate Dead Buy, (or any enchantment that re-animates a creaure) on the dragon will cause an infinite loop. Since the mods didn't explain it, I will.

When you cast Animate Dead Buy (or something similar) targeting the Worldgorger Dragon Buy, the Dragon comes into play, and it's "comes into play" ability of removing all your permanents from the game goes on the stack. If your opponent has no responses, it resolves, and removes all your permanents, including the Animate Dead Buy. Now that the Animate is gone, the Dragon must return to your graveyard. When this happens, the Dragon's "leaves play" ability goes onto the stack, and if your opponent has no responses, it resolves and returns all your permanents to play, including the Animate. You'd then have to pick another target for animate to enchant, and if there were no other creatures in your graveyard to enchant other than the dragon, you'd have yourself a game-drawing loop, unless you had something like Stroke of Genius Buy, Ghitu Fire Buy, or Volcanic Geyser Buy to interrupt it.

You can also float mana in between loops, and thusly create infinite mana, which is how you'd be casting one of the interrupting instants, and if your opponent goes to 0 life or is unable to draw anymore cards, he will lose right away, causing the end of the loop, because a win condition was achieved.

In other words, use Reanimate Buy, or Exhume Buy to bring the dragon back, as they are not enchantments.
