Clone and Altered Ego you can take what they have and make it bigger, and you can fortify your combo strategy.

I'd suggest replacing Bristling Hydra with Aetherstorm Roc. The Roc gives you backups for the Decoction Module if you can't find one, and is better at grinding out a longer game where you can't get the infinite combo off.

But if it were me, I find this kind of deck more fun when I splash blue for Rogue Refiner and Altered Ego, and then throw in silly fetch cards like Dubious Challenge, Eldritch Evolution, Fortune's Favor and Bring to Light.

Do you feel Inspiring Statuary helps you in this deck? Everything is cheap already. if you put one more and two or three bombs like Elder Deep-Fiend it could make a difference. Even Altered Ego could be a good bomb.

Altered Ego can enter the battlefield as a copy of another creature and can also enter with +1/+1 counters on it. If I have it enter as a copy of Winding Constrictor, will it realize it's a Winding Constrictor soon enough to add an extra +1/+1 counter from its own ability?

I'm brewing a flicker enter the battlefield deck and am running Eldrazi Displacer as well as Altered Ego. If I resolve Eldrazi Displacer's ability targeting Altered Ego, can I choose a new creature to copy with Altered Ego? I'm aware it will lose the +1/+1 counters.

Looks pretty good. You may like my deck Getting attacked hertz. I was recently speaking with someone that pointed out you could use Altered Ego to make copies of the Lightning Runner to have the perpetual combat happen faster.

Oh, and if you have ways to add blue while we're at it, Altered Ego seems like a hilarious sideboard card.

I think you're missing out on some sweet combos actually.

For one all of the "form" cards from the Tarkir block like Lightform and Rageform (note these are just 2 ideas), but also there are all the copy creature/revive creature effects scattered throughout the spectrum. Like you could almost get away with running Rise from the Grave and Soul Separator in the same deck as Altered Ego and Clone Legion (almost).

Not to mention Flameshadow Conjuring or the new Odric can grant pseudo haste for your creatures given the right build. But I'll admit most of these would require utilizing synergies suited to specific colors over an even five colors spread. Btw, don't forget Bring to Light is a thing too.
