Try the new overpowered Oops! All Spells combo deck in various formats with the help of this guide to Magic: The Gathering.

After the release of new modal double-faced cards in the Zendikar Rising set for Magic: The Gathering, players have discovered a way to exploit these cards in a highly effective manner. The result is the Oops! All Spells combo deck that now available across multiple formats.

This guide will showcase the three most popular lists for pioneer, modern, and legacy formats with a complete breakdown of the deck's combos.

Oops! All Spells Essentials

The new combo relies on modal-double-faced cards that provide you with mana without actually being lands, and two creatures that are essential for the combo execution across the formats.

        

Both Balustrade Spy and Undercity Informer put all your cards in the graveyard, which gives you space to execute one of the three possible combos in different formats.

The Oops! All Spells combo in pioneer relies on the synergy of Silversmote Ghoul and Prized Amalgam.

  1. Play mana sources until you get to 4 mana
  2. Play Undercity Informer or Balustrade Spy
  3. Put all your cards in your graveyard
  4. Let at least one Creeping Chill activate from your graveyard
  5. After you gain 3 life, put all copies of Silversmote Ghoul from your graveyard onto the battlefield
  6. This will trigger all copies of Prized Amalgam entering the battlefield
  7. Attack for 24 damage next turn

During the combo you will automatically put the two copies of Worldspine Wurm back into your library, so you can safely attack for two more turns if needed.

In case your opponents manage to blow up your graveyard using hate spells, such as Leyline of the Void or Grafdigger's Cage, you can use Thassa's Oracle to win the game with an empty library.

The modern variant of the combo is a bit more complicated, but due to special mana sources, it is possible to get a turn-1-kill:

  1. Play mana sources until you get to 4 mana
  2. Play Undercity Informer or Balustrade Spy
  3. Put all your cards in your graveyard
  4. Return Narcomoeba copies to the battlefield
  5. Return Sword of the Meek copies to the battlefield
  6. Exile three copies of either Pentad Prism or Talisman of Resilience from your graveyard and return Salvage Titan to your hand
  7. Sacrifice three copies of Sword of the Meek and put Salvage Titan onto the battlefield
  8. This will trigger Vengevine copies to return from your graveyard to the battlefield

As a result, you will have four 4/3 haste creatures ready to attack. Taking into account the four copies of Creeping Chill, you should be able to deal 28 points of damage in a turn.

If you need another turn to attack, use Memory's Journey from your graveyard, and put a few cards from your graveyard back into your library.

If your graveyard gets destroyed by Nihil Spellbomb or Tormod's Crypt, use Thassa's Oracle to win the game.

The main combo piece in this legacy list is Goblin Charbelcher, which doesn't require you to use Undercity Informer or Balustrade Spy. But you may still need them as an alternative win condition with Thassa's Oracle.

Here's how you can easily win by simply using Goblin Charbelcher:

  1. Play mana sources until you get to 7 mana
  2. Play and activate Goblin Charbelcher
  3. Deal lethal damage to your opponent

You can also play Narcomoeba and Bridge from Below combo as an extra measure if neither of your two combos worked.

Also, be generous with your Pact of Negation copies and counter everything that will try to prevent you from winning.
