Combo of the Day
Avenging Druid Buy + Tideforce Elemental Buy
You will also need a pinging card of your choice: Viridian Longbow Buy, Fire Whip Buy, Hermetic Study Buy or Psionic Gift Buy enchanting the Avenging Druid Buy.

Having all three in play grants you:
1) Deals 1 damage to target player for each land in your deck.
2) Fetch all the land of your deck and put them into play tapped.
