Body Double Discussion

I think he goes for Phyrexian Delver + Viscera Seer, in order to reanimate Hulk and sac it to find Mikaeus, then Ballista. Body Double and Carrion Feeder can also be used.

the only card that isnt in the deck already above is Gonti, Lord of Luxury but the card is still in my physical deck atm. i do have Clever Impersonator in the deck as well as Body Double. those two clones and Phyrexian Metamorph and Stunt Double go in all my blue decks they are too powerful of clones not to have but that my opinion. Merchant of Secrets and Skyscanner are fillers right now because i dont know if i want to run Turnabout and Pull from Tomorrow yet

Gonti, Lord of Luxury is one of the strongest ETB effects in black. Also, Altar of the Brood goes infinite with Aminatou and Felidar Guardian, making it a must-have. Clever Impersonator seems to be an upgrade over Body Double. Merchant of Secrets and Skyscanner seem to low impact in my opinion.

ultrareal Well the main Flash Hulk line is Body Double and Viscera Seer to start with. From there Body Double copies Protean Hulk and then we sacrifice our Body Double which is now Protean Hulk to Viscera Seer. For our second Tutor we're getting Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Walking Ballista which works kinda similarly to the Mike Trike combo but we need a sacrifice outlet which is why we need the first tutor chain.

As for Razaketh, the Foulblooded he's more of a support engine then the main tutor engine that he's used for in other more focused Raza decks. However we do run a lot of cards that support Raza lines such as Life / Death, Eternal Witness, and Lion's Eye Diamond which all work fine with our deck and also contribute to some faster Raza wins. But generally he's just assembling our combos just like many decks that run him. He's just not the main focus.

And Dance of the Dead was in the deck at one point and got cut. I can't honestly remeber what it was cut for exactly but it has been in the deck before. So it wouldn't be crazy to run it. I just know I've personally cut it from the list.

I don't normally comment but I see someone else also loves the idea of edh mill :)

IMO in commander spells that are targeted like Fraying Sanity or Curse of the Bloody Tome are worse than global effects like Memory Erosion. It doesn't matter if it's 1v1 commander, but anything in a group setting makes them worse. Stuff like Hedron Crab and Curse of the Bloody Tome can too slow for 100 card decks. You're not guaranteed to play them early and by the time you mill 10 or 20 cards they'll have their commander and some other nonsense to just end the game. Some people play Kozilek, Butcher of Truth so milling them out is impossible without Leyline of the Void

Even if you're all into mill, some board wipes like Black Sun's Zenith or Killing Wave can really save you.

Some cards which might help are Ashen Powder Whispering Madness Soul Manipulation Dissipation Field Quest for Ancient Secrets Avatar of Woe Body Double Consuming Aberration Guiltfeeder Nighthowler Sepulchral Primordial Wrexial, the Risen Deep Entreat the Dead Wight of Precinct Six

if you're into zombies you can use Arcane Adaptation + Undead Alchemist + Waste Not

Let me know how your deck worked out for you. It's always interesting to see different interpretations of a deck.

If mill is your thing, Rise of the Dark Realms is a great include. Body Double's great too since she's odd. You can also consider Beacon of Unrest and Extract from Darkness. In fact Beacon coupled with Isochron Scepter + Mystical Tutor let's you reanimate an artifact or creature every turn.

Mine has been working great so far and if I manage to drop Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign early, the game is mine for the taking if my opponents are void of answers. I remember one game where I had her out on turn 2 and casted a "free" Expropriate on turn 3 wIth her attack trigger!
