Scurry Oak infinite combo
I've been losing matches with Scurry Oak infinite squirrel combo, becasue my time ends even If I didn't interact with the priority of my opponent, On my turn, my time is also consumed with the combo of my opponent. Time of my opponent only should be consumed and not mine. Becasue on my turn I have a response to clean the board
I lost to scurry oak stack, I had platinum angel in play and my opponent had 150+ stacks of life gain and scurry oak. Eventually the game decided to stop taking time off my opponent and decided it was my time turn even though i couldnt do anything, by the time my opponent finally resolved all his stacks i lost the game because i was afk. How is that magic?
Please Ban Scurry Oak. When combined with other token/counter generators it creates an infinite loop. Really Stupid and does not make gameplay fun.
Also ban Mesmeric Orb please
The combo mention in the title allows my opponent to have infinite turn time while I auto-concede for inactivity after their turn even though there was nothing I could have done during their turn (infinitely putting +1/+1-counters on Scurry Oak). If, at all, the player using the above-mentioned combo should auto-concede for inactivity/exceeding the time limit, and not their opponent. Alternatively, just ban Scurry Oak!
Bump Ban this ****
This combo is ridiculous. Same thing happens to me multiple times a day. If I'm playing on my phone, then it freezes up and won't even let me concede. This person just won the game and probably started a new match before my game even caught up to the end of his squirrel tokens.
Last 4-5 games I played against this combo lasted 15-20 minutes and sometimes it was totally out of play since the player could not possibly win. As a result I spent 20 minutes playing one game instead of 3-4 which is really what I want to do since time is valuable for me and I dont want to spend more then I have to on my hobbies.
Considering how annoying whole time waste is if this card is not banned by the time next set is released I will just delete my arena account and you guys can keep ruining the game with all these boring *** combos that prevent people from actually enjoying the game.
This just happened to me, this is utter BS. After I select resolve all I essentially pass my turn in that round of casting. After he blows his timers on oak procs, my timers shouldn't be consumed until I am able to take an action.
This card should be illegal, and the sanguine blood vito/blight combo should also be eliminated.
In fact all repeating effects should probably be removed from the game.
WOW, almost two years later and NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE? How about banning the card in historic WotC? I guarantee if this happened in a tournament setting with money on the line it would be immediately banned after. It is pathetic how much we deal with from such a trash company.
I see a bug report from Nov 30, 2021. Today is May 22, 2023. I lost to this same bug today. Opp does combo with Scurry Oak - Heliod. Puts a hundred triggered abilities on the stack. When they finally pass the turn my turn rope is already almost gone. I play one creature, they put another hundred abilities on the stack and my turn passes without me getting priority again because my timer runs while they are taking game actions.
Appears there are multiple concerns raised for this 'Scurry Oak' infinite combo
Is something like this allowed?
Barely turn 4 and there's a combo that gave this player a 27/28 creature as well as the 26 1x1 creatures while also gaining life.
Also the 'collected company' picked out the enchantment, there's nothing on that card suggests its a creature except for the 5/5.
I think you just remove it.
The same happened to me. I was playing and this same combo started to take up my time. When the player stopped and passed, I didn't have time to respond and the game automatically skipped my entire turn. I didn't have time to do anything, this is so frustrating and the game should fix this as soon as possible.
this is true i pilot this deck. i did it once by mistake.
i was looking for a new deck. then found this deck https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/5090830#paper
while piloting this deck. I found that the deck can run down the opponents timer before it runs mine down. If they have activations of the infinite combo.
any life gain i receive with heliod, sun-crowned (cleric class is the cheaper version of this card), and scurry oak in play i get a 1/1 squirrel. i can go infinite with that , and with a soul warden, or prosperous inkeeper in play. Anything with a "creature entering you gain a life" ability. Im just doing my due diligence here to let you know that it is possible.
I've come to report this here as it's happened to me too often to let go without still being addressed by WotC. It's a bug that needs to be fixed and should be raised as a Sev 1 or 2 by the Devs/Mods.
EditL Here I am playing Arena in Historic Ranked and my opponent is playing the Scurry Oak Bug knowingly. Time: 08:52AM 1 August 2022 GMT. Screenshot: https://i.imgur.com/CgKz9DQ.png
WHY HAS THIS NOT BEEN ADDRESSED BY WOTC?
Hi i was playing historic ranked and encounter a guy with and infinite combo, i attach the screenshot, i belive infinite combos must be prohibited, he said to me good game on second turn, it's not fair.
Also there is another one with infinite red mana combo, please fix it.
It's amazing that this is still allowed to happen. It can't be difficult for Wizards to ban it, they just won't for some reason. If not Scurry Oak, then either Heliod or that innkeeper card, so that the loop can't keep happening.

BAN Scurry oak. A turn 4 infinite combo is just broken. Not to mention how many inifinite combos ive seen with this one. Its an uncommon for magic sake. Ban it and ban ALL infinite combos. Theyre virtually impossible to counter once they start. They undermine the integrity of the gameplay by completely changing the rules of the win scenario.
Using an infinite combo is like a spoiled rotten brat youre forced to play with as a kid because your mom is worried because they have no friends.
The Brat triumphantly yells, "I Win!" You ask for logic or reasoning and their response is, "just cuz!"
And you wonder why you dont have any friends. Winning with an infinite combo is a cop-out for somebody who cant see the game thru to the end.
Well dear user of infinite combos: You crow and cheer yoursel; prausing the accomplishment of a win that should never have been a possibility in the 1st place. Youre like a guy who brings a gun to a fist fight and upon killing the hulking mass of combat experienced muscle you lawd yourself as the better fighter just because you won (when in reality you are not the better fighter.)
A stronger fighter (i.e. the best players) should look for a challenge to win, not take the easy way out.
WotC used to monitor these things. They used to care about balancing the game and banning infinite combos, but since they abandoned us its up to us, the strong players, to fight for a truly balanced battle.
Dont used infinite combos, dont use cards that change the rules for winning (i.e. you win the if... scenarios), dont use planeswalkers, dont copy other people's deck list, and especially dont use cards that you know are broken. Dont accept the fact that WotC allows these cards. Fight for balance then it comes down to wit, intellect, strategy, cunning, not money and lazy copying.
Literally just happened to me. I was playing Rakdos Sacrifice, and was fully ready to attempt to answer my opponent, but never got the chance to.
If a player has clicked "Resolve All", they do not have the ability to do anything, and should not be penalized for waiting for a hundred-card-high stack to resolve.
