Take out: Body Double, Diluvian Primordial, Frost Titan, Identity Thief, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir (cuz screw Teferi), Supplant Form, Back from the Brink, Volition Reins, Chromatic Lantern (cuz reasons).

Yeah so obviously you need to take out some more cards, especially to draw some cards cuz you don't have enough of that but here's a start

NoSoyYucateco: I do agree with you on the scepter. As for the rest what would you suggest removing. Bear in mind All the copy spells have to remain. I know Back from the Brink and Swarm Intelligence could go but what else do you think should go?

Back from the Brink could be really useful since I don't have any creature recursion. It at least gives me access to the creatures again, and likely another Wizard ETB.

Soulblade Djinn is a maybe. If I get infinite spells cast in a turn, but am unable to deck myself, this dude at least gives my Wizards infinite power and toughness, which means I may be able to swing in for the kill. But without Trample, it seems too easily stopped by a swarm of birds or angels.

The others seem like too high a CMC cost for what they do. I could definitely see myself cutting Mercurial Pretender or Quasiduplicate for Clone Legion , though.

And thank you for the kudos! I tried to build this one very formulaically, and I think it worked out.

Your thoughts on Back from the Brink , Soulblade Djinn , Clone Legion , Salvager of Secrets , or Scholar of the Ages ?

Your list has surprisingly few places you can properly make a cut btw without losing the "amatuer versatility" of it. Kudos to you.

What are your methods for "abusing" his proliferate ability. He has to die for the ability to trigger, which means you are letting him go to the graveyard instead of using the commander's replacement affect and putting him in the command zone.

I think you should think of ways to abuse him while he's on the board instead of hoping he will die and getting a single trigger. Progenitor Mimic , Rite of Replication , Followed Footsteps , Back from the Brink , and any clones are great with this commander to really abuse the effect.

Hey elgosu1337!

Just finished remodeling my own Brudiclad deck. My list is here, please check it out if you have time, let me know what you think. I really like your list! It has some great choices that I didn't think of, like Combat Celebrant , Genesis Chamber and Oketra's Monument . I am thinking of further balance changes and have been adding cards to my maybeboard to boot. Some cards that I would heavily recommend because they have such amazing utility are:

Trading Post :The versatility on this card is amazing. Recurring artifacts, making goats, discarding cards into the grave when needed and the fact that you can do it all at instant speed to keep your options open has made me really fall in love with this card.

Sai, Master Thopterist : Efficient Construction that's a little cheaper and has card draw if needed.

Mishra's Self-Replicator :This thing sets up a huge board of tokens by itself. It is a little costly to start, but it gets very threatening fairly fast.

God-Pharaoh's Gift / Back from the Brink :Lastly, these two are certainly meant for long games, but they are amazing options for attrition wars or that option that can get you to a game-winning play out of nowhere.

Back from the Brink -> Dance of Many

Sulfur Falls -> Mountain

Back from the Brink might be a good card actually (I never actually drew it), but Dance of Many is just such a cheaper token maker. I cut Sulfur Falls because it's hot in standard, and I'll buy it back when it falls :)
