Altered Ego Discussion

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.

If you want more ways to get Siege Rhino you could even perhaps try Altered Ego.

I tested this deck at a local tournament and I was able to go 3-0.

I got 2-1 against U/W flash, 2-0 against R/W vehicles and 2-0 against B/G delirium.All I did was swarm the Eager Construct with Saheeli Rai and Saheeli's Artistry accompanied with a 15/15 Altered Ego Eager Construct dealing upto 35 damage in one turn.

Mirrorpool lets you copy it for more Eager Construct.

Saheeli's Artistry gives you two more Eager Constructs as well!

Soul Separator lets you bring back a dead Eager Construct.

Saheeli Rai copies Eager Construct and helps you find Eager Construct quicker.

Altered Ego lets you make a bigger Eager Construct!

+1, love this deck!

Rashmi, Eternities Crafter has some amazing synergy with Momir Vig. If you play a big enough green creature as your first spell of the turn, you can tutor for any creature you like that costs less.

Kruphix, God of Horizons is a powerful Simic legendary creature. You seem to be running quite a few expensive creatures, so he'll help you acquire the mana you'll need to play your Eldrazi.

Progenitor Mimic is value city in a single card. Want a copy of something? You're thinking too small. Want a copy of something every turn? Now we're talking!

Wistful Selkie is an easy-to-cast Simic creature that replaces itself after you play it. Just good old-fashioned value.

Altered Ego is another Clone variant worth looking into.

I suggest swapping these in for Burgeoning, Mimic Vat, Planar Portal, Lotus Petal, and Thran Dynamo.

He has informed me that he will be away at Afiya Grove anyway, to work on his animal taming abilities. His Altered Ego, The Avenger of Zendikar, will probably be assisting him in his Beastmaster Ascension... unless, of course, he should attend the dinner himself. The Archangel of Thune and Armorcraft Judge are willing to arrange an after party, and Animar, Soul of Elements is disappointed in the queen's distaste for fire, but he understands her reasoning.
