Body Double Discussion

LuminAutopsy on In Service To The King

Yurie sorry it took me so long to reply, had final exams and work. thats a lot of suggestions. Malfegor is definitely on the maybeboard, he seems fucking hilarious. Ogre Battledriver is prob a no go, unearthed creatures already have haste and the 2 extra power doesnt matter much. Waste Not is interesting, id have to test it out, gets the maybeboard. Exhume is probably a no go, because it lets my opponents get something too, but its a super powerful effect so it gets the maybeboard. for Massacre Wurm and Sheoldred, Whispering One, i would love to run them both but im trying to keep this deck under a 150$ budget, so itd be one or the other. Archfiend of Ifnir is a nah, even with all my looting effects i dont feel it does enough on its own unlike the rest of the creatures to warrant a spot. Body Double lets me get any creature out of any gyard, but its very variable on its usefulness, still gets the maybeobard tho. Cunning Lethemancer is a nah, too small to warrant use and the effect is marginal, if i wanted to run an effect like that id run Necrogen Mists. Puppeteer Clique is interesting, and even though i dont get the persist trigger after unearthing it, the etb is ver powerful. Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs has the same problem as teysa envoy of ghosts, where theyre just not gonna attack until they have a way to get rid of him. Lazav, Dimir Mastermind is a nah bc even tho we have a lot of symmetrical draw spells the chances of actually getting something useful is slim. Fated Return is too expensive to be blunt, even though instant speed reanimation is nice id rather use cheaper spells or just unearth something. Magus of the Wheel is a nice semi repeatable draw, so it gets the maybeboard. Corpse Augur is interesting, id have to playtest it first. Feldon of the Third Path is definitely an interesting card in its own right, and has the potential to be amazing, although the same applies for his potential to be underwhelming. Covenant of Minds is a no go bc giving ur opponents choice sucks. Charmbreaker Devils is a no go bc the randomness tied to its effect could screw me over, and most of my instants and sorceries are good enough as one shots, and even then i have Archaeomancer. Avatar of Woe is a nice repeatable destruction engine, but i dont feel that it fits with the deck. Extract from Darkness has the potential to be super powerful even if my opponents dont have anything in their graveyard because i can get somethin from my own. Overseer of the Damned is a no go, it doesnt do anything when unearthed aside from getting me a 2/2 and killing a dude, and i already have shriekmaw. Infernal Offering gives my opponent choice, and could potentially screw me over hard. Stormsurge Kraken is a nice untargetable beater, but once again it doesnt do enough for me. Skeletal Scrying makes me exile my gyard, so its a no go.

You don't really need Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger because his trigger is a cast trigger, not an etb trigger. And you also don't really need Body Double, as you don't require the use of graveyards. Instead (and also this deck is super expensive), you can use Clever Impersonator to copy not just creatures but also enchantments or artifacts. Have you also thought of using Eerie Interlude; its basically another Brago proc that doesn't require an attack.

In my opinion, this deck is really just for show with all of its diverse and powerful cards; you don't really have a win con, and some of the cards don't have synergy. I would recommend revising it to find some good win cons, and a way for your cards to interact in a good way. For example, you can use your token army and etb effects to act like a pillow fort, stalling until you get to a good finisher like Storm Herd, Darksteel Reactor, or even White Sun's Zenith. Or you can use your life gaining creatures to maintain a life total and win with Felidar Sovereign or Test of Endurance. It is really your choice as to how to build your deck.

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

GS10 on Oh, The INSANITY!! (Mill EDH)

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.
