I wish I could Rite of Replication a Rite of Replication.

Also, I currently own 15 copies of RoR. I happen to like the card quite a lot.

I wish I could kick a Rite at a Sigil Tracer and just keep copying it until I ran out of mana.

That reminds me, I really need to find a good use for Sigil Tracer some day.

Easy:
You're playing Riku (or Twincast with a 2 colour general).
You have Bloom Tender in play (or any mix of creatures that allow you to add UR to your pool in addition to the 7UU needed for the kicked RoR).
You have Intruder Alarm in play.
You have Sigil Tracer in play
Play the kicked RoR on Sigil Tracer, copy it with Riku, let only the kicked copy resolve, make 5 Sigil Tracers, untap your Bloom Tender with Intruder Alarm, copy the still-on-the-stack-original kicked RoR using the Sigil Tracer ability.
Repeat for infinite copies of whatever other creature(s) you want to copy.

I count 11 mana & minimum 5 specific cards in there. That's fair.

Doubling Cube
Leyline of Anticipation/Vedelkan Orery
Capsize
Sigil Tracer + Another Wizard
Rite of Replication

also 5 colors, but its in monoblue, but also requires a somewhat greater initial mana investment. It does however also do just infinite mana with just Doubling Cube and Capsize

Challenge Accepted!

ETA: For some reason I thought that Viridian Joiner produced any color and not just G. Luckily, there is another way, and it even streamlines the combo! (Sort of.)

Step 1: Have Ink-Treader Nephilim, Eternal Witness, and Morselhoarder on board.
Step 2: Cast Rite of Replication kicked, targeting Ink-Treader Nephilim. ITN's ability triggers, and boom, you've just quintupled your creature count (since I believe a copy of a kicked spell is also kicked... I'm going to feel really dumb if I'm wrong on this).
Step 3: By the time your copy of Eternal Witness hits the board, Rite has resolved and gone to the bin. Use the ETB trigger of one of your Witnesses to target Rite, returning it to your hand.
Step 4: Remove a total of 9 -1/-1 counters from your Morselhoarders, adding 7UU to your mana pool.
Step 5: Repeat steps 2-4 as needed. Bonus points if you kill your opponents with an unstoppable army of Eternal Witnesses.

Or, I suppose you could target one of Precursor Golem's vanilla buddies with Rite of Replication kicked, then get it back and do it again to end up with 4,059,078 Golems on the field. But my way is less boring and CONSIDERABLY jankier, and thus better. Sort of.

Easier: Kick Rite of Replication at Sigil Tracer. Copy it, then sacrifice your tapped wizards to Phyrexian Altar. Make infinite Sigil Tracers, then carry on for whatever other creatures you want to copy.

I think this one wins. It's simpler AND has a phyrexian altar. It's the kind of thing that could be a legitimate "oops, I win."

Once, I was all prepared to kick Rite at my opponents (Omnath) Acidic Slime, but then he sacrificed it to Natural Order for Kamahl and won the game that turn.

Once my friend's Omnath deck got his Terastodon RoR'd. He still had four lands and won with Triumph of the Hordes. Taught that damn bastard a lesson.

One time, I cast a kicked RoR at a Sakura Tribe Elder, and my opponent didn't sac the Elder in response, so I got five Elder's which I sacrificed for five lands.
But I still lost that game.

SEE, PRIMEVAL TITAN ISN'T BROKEN AT ALL.

That's not ban-worthy, that's the spirit of EDH. Three-card combo involving the combat phase? Awesome.

I would consider this to be a cool play, I am playing an non control 'good stuff' sen triplets deck WITHOUT RoR in it. I manage to stick my general and snag one guys Frost titan out of his hand. Turn later I snag a RoR out of the other guys hand and kick it on the stolen titan. I used this play to teach them not to play such an obvious 'I win' card as i used and abused it without even owning it lol. Needless to say I won that game lol nobody could wrath so it was gg. I think this is quite a good use for it! :P

Just this last weekend, I RoR'd kicked on Kokoshuo (some one elses), and killed only 2 of the other 3 players! What a shame that the other guy had recurred the damn thing 3 times with Tortured Existance.
