What's a Sideboard?

How it Works


The "Chimera' is a combo I have been using since Nemesis came out last 2000. In the same year, Nicholas Labarre also used this combo at the 2000 World Championship. Since then, the combo has been famous. The combo featured Saproling Cluster Buy, Ashnod's Altar Buy and Fecundity Buy.


Make tokens using Saproling Cluster Buy by discarding a card then sacrifice those tokens to Ashnod's Altar Buy then float those mana. You get to draw a card for each sacrificed creature because of Fecundity Buy. Just float the extra mana and repeat the process until you get to draw Banefire Buy. Death Wish Buy is in the maindeck so I can search Banefire Buy or Stroke of Genius Buy at the sideboard. The stroke by the way is for decks that has Worship Buy. Many of the people I play with has it on their decks.

Crop Rotation Buy is a good card that you may think is unnecessary for the deck but it really helps a lot especially if the gemstone counters are running out or to get the color I need or to get Serra's Sanctum Buy for even more mana. i also considered Dark Ritual Buy but it isn't that much help as black is not a main color of the deck and it ruined my synergy. Diabolic Intent Buy is a good card on its own and works very well with the rector.

Emrakul, the Aeons Torn Buy is in the deck as it allows infinite mana and could be a win condition at times and has a colorless cost which isn't a problem. For the other creatures, i went with walls that has of good use. Academy Rector Buy is obvious. Sterling Grove Buy is a very good card that serves two purposes. Untargetable enchanments and/or search. For mass enchanment removal, Replenish Buy.
