Combo of the Day
Dovescape Buy + Mirari Buy
I'm surprised this hasn't been posted.

Dovescape counters any instants or sorceries your opponent plays. When you play one, copy it using Mirari. The original will be countered and you'll get your birds, but the copy, since it wasn't technically played, will go through.
