Clever Impersonator Discussion

hkhssweiss on My deck is boring, LET ME PLAY YOURS -- Devil plan

Why not use Paradox Haze? You not only get one trigger of Sen Triplets but TWO! :P

...if you use Copy Enchantment or Clever Impersonator you also get THREE! xD

Here’s a janky little combo for ya. Throw in:

First get Liliana in play so you can tutor out the rest of the combo. Next play the architect then send in the impersonator but don’t copy anything with him. He will come in as a 1/1 due to the architect. Trust me, it’ll make sense lol. Next up cast the rite of replication on the impersonator and target the copies of him on your Anointed Procession making a total of 6 of them. Now when ever you make a copy of something target the impersonator to make a copy of anything on the board and any time you make a token it will make a total of 32 tokens from 1. You can always make more than 6 Anointed Processions to keep doubling the amount of tokens produced. It’s something to think about anyways.

Just remembered that Clever Impersonator will let you copy enchantments as well so that way you can copy the haze 3 times.

Drakorya on Which commander to build?

Riku decks are great, as you can make them in different ways to suit how you want the deck to run. I've run my Riku deck as a spells matter deck, then changed it to a creature ETB deck.

With spells, you can go the infinite turns route or value spells route, like what goodair said with big X spells like Banefire or Epic Experiment.

With creatures you can focus more on synergies with combos included. Palinchron combos with Riku on it's own, but I've found it's more fun to just copy value creatures like Inferno Titan, Mulldrifter and Woodfall Primus. Biovisionary is also a hilarious way to win, and not to hard if you run Rite of Replication, Phantasmal Image, Clever Impersonator, etc.

You can check out my decklists if you'd like:

First off I suggest at least 8 more lands and or mana rocks. Anything less than 44 mana sources is quite risky for getting mana screwed at some point. As for card ideas here are a few:

hkhssweiss on Ooze the Boss?

Looks like quite a tuned list already. Here are some cards that you may be able to find useful,


Cabal Therapy - Great hate card that has useful side effects and can be used to proc a kill trigger as well.

Nature's Claim - Cheap removal spell one of the best.

Natural State - Same as above.

Noxious Revival - Spicy card that can mess with your opponents, protect your cards from being exiled, or just reuse that fetch in your time of need. Value.


Natural Order - Say hi to a T4 (and that's w/o ramp) Terastodon ;P

Birthing Pod - You have quite a well spread of creatures, Pod can probably fit in with your deck.

Eldritch Evolution - One way pod that can higher by two cmc.

Pattern of Rebirth - Another way to pull creatures from your library.


Search for Azcanta  Flip - Can allows us to pitch and filter our draws early game, and a Impulse later on.

Attunement - A bit slow, but does help dig through your deck super fast.


Walking Ballista - Should be the direct upgrade to Triskelion but I do understand why you would run it still. A direct upgrade nonetheless.

Viscera Seer - A sac outlet is always good.

Underrealm Lich - Pure gravy for this dude.

Clever Impersonator - A higher variable clone effect.

Hope this helps!

Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip equipped on an unblockable creature guarantee you to get a big ass threat on the board

Cyclonic Rift is A must if you can get it

Vedalken Orrery to flash in any responses

Clone cards like Clone, Clever Impersonator to either copy one of your cards or a threat your opponent have.

Pheardemons on Show and Tell and clone/copy ...

Thank you both. And my apologizes Boza. I checked Show and Tell, but forgot to check Clever Impersonator.
