Body Double Discussion

griffstick on animar sliver edh concept

No. Mass reanimation is not in these colors. But there are a few good cards for one or two creatures at a time.

Most important inclusion is Mana Echoes

You should look for more infect type to make it more streamlined look for alternate win cons like self mill and commander damage.

Mill Show

Next approach i would recommend is infect a cheap and efficient way to close a game out fast

Infect Show

And if neither of these take you fancy look into commander damage routes using dredge cards to fill your graveyard fast.

Lilbrudder hmm that's actually a pretty cool way to use Hulk to win. Definitely the most streamlined pile I've seen since it only requires one Hulk trigger rather than chaining multiples with stuff like Body Double or Phyrexian Delver

Carmasem for Induce Paranoia and Oona, Queen of the Fae I'd likely take out some clone effects.

In my Mirko Vosk deck I ended up cutting both Dimir Doppelganger and Evil Twin, especially the Twin, is okay to copy a Commander and keep killing it, it is awesome against something like Meren of Clan Nel Toth but it's somewhat hit or miss. Maybe Body Double, since Lazav, Dimir Mastermind has Hexproof, or the other around, since Body Double gets ETB triggers, it will heavily depend on your meta. But I'd probably go with cutting a few clones into some more control, for the same reason you don't consider Sphinx's Tutelage that good in EDH: Milling doesn't scale that well, and even the faster mill decks find some walls that need being dealt with.

And keep in mind that if someone wants to stall you, the original Eldrazi Titans, Blightsteel Colossus, Serra Avatar and such keep going back into the deck, so they might find a way to stop you from milling them, and in that case you should have a few exile spells up your sleeve. Duplicant is a good one, considering you are running clones to begin with, Phyrexian Ingester is awesome and Reality Shift is an incredibly underrated card. So if this becomes a problem in your meta in the future there's some ideas on how to deal with it.

This is a super cool deck. Lot of fun. One thing that im not sure how you feel about, but Phenax, God of Deception is very fitting along with cards like Nighthowler, Mortivore, Sewer Nemesis, etc. I've had great luck with it (especially if i have a token or two from Sidisi, Brood Tyrant. Phenax makes it way easier and more consistent to trigger Sidisi).

What's interesting is with this layout you have here, Sidisi doesn't make or break the deck. A lot of options here for win conditions. Great stuff.

My favorite so far is to Traumatize myself, sack two lands for Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Flashback Dread Return for Mortivore or Nighthowler (sometimes both or Body Double) and mill them with Phenax, God of Deception tap trigger or kill them with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord mana ability.

What's the plan for when Karmic Guide is exiled or stuck in your hand? Have you considered running Body Double?

It's just get Body Double to copy Protean Hulk to reuse it acts as a second Karmic Guide in case your combo fails the first time Carrion Feeder is also a good back up sacrifice outlet.

Full list of p-hulk combos is here:

I personally think the Body Double hulk line works wonders I would definitely include it.

Any reason for child over the other 5 color generals? Is it the abundance of sacrifice outlets?
