Creature — Shapeshifter
Altered Ego can't be countered.
You may have Altered Ego enter the battlefield as a copy of any creature on the battlefield, except it enters with X additional +1/+1 counters on it.

Altered Ego Discussion

I think my favorite thing to try and do with the card is going to be to try and make copies of it. I have Rite of Replication, Altered Ego, Progenitor Mimic, and Mirrorpool for all sorts of shenanigans. Simic( is without a doubt my favorite colour combination I would have to say to play.

Is it really enough to say you have a copy subtheme when I count, three clones ? I would personally recommend dropping it from the description, otherwise you could just add more clones such as Body Double, Altered Ego, Phyrexian Metamorph, OG Clone, Dack's Duplicate, etc

Just did a quick 1v1 w this and my Gonti deck for fun so here's what I would advise from that brief play and looking at your list:
No one likes infect so if you don't always want to be archenemy then I would cut them for unblockable threats like Triton Shorestalker & co.
Cancel is meh, tbh, even Dissolve is better. I personally like using counters that replace themselves even though they usually cost a little more. Arcane Denial, Statute of Denial, Failed Inspection and Dream Fracture.
Progenitor Mimic is cute but if you want a clone why not Altered Ego since it gets counters (on theme)?
Cards that I saw and I was confused why they were even in here were Majestic Myriarch (not many creatures have keywords on them), Loam Larva (kills your next draw, how about Farhaven Elf?), Kruphix, God of Horizons (Thassa, God of the Sea and Nylea, God of the Hunt make more sense), Triskelion (expensive, slow, win-more), Orochi Hatchery (Snake Basket is better imo), Planar Bridge (so expensive to use), and Inexorable Tide (feels win-more).
Hope something helps!

No problem dude, If you run Ghave, Guru of Spores you might consider Master Biomancer, as they work together really well. Another good thing to include for kill pressure might be Chasm Skulker and Altered Ego for utility, as it can copy basically anything triggering some effects with insane numbers of counters.. you want another doubling season with legs? here i copy the Deepglow Skate i just casted with 6 +1/+1 counters on it... oh wait did i say 6? lemme just double them real quick!

Pretty solid deck for first draft!
I would drop some of the mana rocks if you're gonna run Bane of Progress, perhaps replacing them with Darksteel Ingot and some land fetchers like Wood Elves or Fertilid. Bane of Progress is certainly good, but the double-edged nature of it makes it a hard include for me.

Altered Ego just seems very expensive to summon. I would rather play Rashmi, Eternities Crafter for free castings or free card draw each turn (combines well with Nissa, Steward of Elements. I don't like Nissa, Genesis Mage in this build and would rather have Glimmer of Genius main-board.

I don't know how much success you're having with Undergrowth Champion, but I never liked it very much. Just personally, I would suggest dropping it.
Somehow, you're not running Master Biomancer. Do it.
Sapphire Drake gives everything flying. That's always a good thing in mainly green decks.
You've got mostly green, so Reverent Hunter would make a good choice.
If you have tokens or lots of creatures often, play Stag Beetle.
Oran-Rief, the Vastwood makes for a good land for boosting your creatures, as do graft lands.
Minamo, School at Water's Edge lets you untap Vorel.
Gutter Grime creates increasingly large slimes. Ew.
Garruk Wildspeaker is a useful endgame planeswalker.
Everflowing Chalice for ramp.
For adding +1/+1 counters at instant speed, Strength of the Tajuru.
Often, you can check Auto-suggestions for cards this deck could use. I used that to bolster my advice. (Bolster is another nice +1/+1 counters ability, btw.) I also used my Vorel deck: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/when-you-have-too-many-counters-blame-vorel/ . It has a card-draw subtheme, but most of the cards are related to this.
A couple other deck ideas:- Atraxa, Praetors' Voice covers so much more ground with +1/+1 counters--you can play Abzan/Dromoka cards, Golgari cards, even the Orzhov Syndicate has powerful spells with counters. And those are just tribes/guilds.- Partner commanders. If Sultai is workable, use Reyhan, Last of the Abzan and Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix for a sacrifice-card draw theme. I have a deck based on that.
