Body Double Discussion

Taigam, Sidisi's Hand, Body Double are the first two creatures I am considering cutting here.

I believe I will cut all 3 curses and Shifting Shadow . The curses in this years commander has been the best they've ever had. When I watched Game Knights it was crazy the gold people were looting off of Curse of Opulence, and they didn't even play the card right (The controller of Curse should of received a gold token as well).

However, I don't know if curses really help - great for politicking, but do your really want to give your opponents free mana rocks? Probably not.

Body double is good, but I think I'd rather put a higher value Clone type card such as Clever Impersonator or Phyrexian Metamorph.

We have to find room for Dualcaster Mage. Wanderwine Prophets could give us an auto-win condition, so I think we have to put this in as well.

Disciple of Bolas can be at the least a 5 mana draw four cards gain four life (not bad at all) so lets auto-include this. and Sage of Fables buffs our Wizards just a bit, and gives us even more card draw (yay, card draw!). Lastly, Beguiler of Wills is going in our final 6th spot because at 6 mana you get to steal a creature at haste speed with her token, you'll at the least get a 2/2 and after she's sacrificed you get another one!

My next task I'm going to look at making at least two more cuts to put in two of my favorite Faerie Wizard's Mistbind Clique + Sower of Temptation .

Dude! This is insanely good! I applaud thee! I know way too little about control to offer any real suggestions. But, how about Body Double? I always enjoy the perverseness of milling my opponent's good stuff, and then using it for myself ;) stay frosty!

Voolfina thanks for commenting! I've looked at Gilder Bairn and I've decided that Gyre Sage and Argothian Elder are my go to for mana, but the star players in this deck are Horseshoe Crab and Simic Ragworm, because in combination with the guys who create mana, steal creatures, and add counters, the untapping is KEY! That's why I have Body Double to stand in if my buddies get wiped. I appreciate the feedback!

River Kelpie is the best blue card for dredge and reanimator ever! If you got yourself a Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and a Sac outlet you can draw forever, if you want to or not (Kelpie is not a may).

Shiek200 I have had some serious fun with living death. Its the best card ever for a varied meta.

mlequesne As shiek said scourge is much better for our purposes. Voidia and I have been doing these layered multicombo decks for a while. What we found is that to make it work all your combos have to be compact as possible and all your enablers have to work for each combo as much as possible. Adding redundancy to FC with anoher combo only piece weakens every other combo. In a dedicated FC build griffin is good.

wylwist: It is certainly an issue but unfortunately the solutions are generally more costly than the issue itself. If we get ballista in hand no biggie just cast it for 0 after mike is in play. Same with Viscera Seer for 1. Also seer in play allows us to skip the whole delver step and go straight to mike and ballista. That leaves Mike or delver in hand as the issue. Body Double helps with the delver issue but does nothing for Mike. One card I have considered is Body Snatcher but its kind of meh on its own and I think it may also require another card (ex. Golgari Thug to work, which weakens the rest of the deck. At the end of the day if our pile does not work we attempt to pivot to a different wincondition. For instance, I have used flash hulk to grab something like eternal witness and eternal scourge/fauna shaman to assemble food chain.

I've been working on a similar list, i've had times where I have some of the hulk pieces in the yard or in my hand, do you have any good ways to solve said issues? Body Double seems like it would have it's use in this list. Specifically in times when you have phyrexian delver in your hand or yard.
