NoSoyYucateco on Copy that, Copycat!

I don't think you have enough instant-speed stuff to justify Seedborn Muse. She's so strong though. Maybe if you added more mana sinks to help make use of her? Ant Queen-type effects, or Holistic Wisdom come to mind. (I LOVE Holistic Wisdom). Anything that you can dump all that mana into.

I feel the same way about Mirrorwing Dragon. You only have a few pieces that combo with it. On top of that, you can get the same effect with Zada, Hedron Grinder for less mana. I think it's a cool idea and could lead to some really explosive plays. I would just consider adding a few more pieces that can make use of it. Sublime Epiphany would be a good choice. Same with Heat Shimmer or Stolen Identity.

I think you can cut Darksteel Plate. It doesn't have much synergy with your deck, and it's very situational. Followed Footsteps is also pretty hard to get much value out of. Other than that, I think it's looking really tight, and it'll be hard to make more cuts (aside from maybe Clone Legion.)

Here are some ideas!

Creatures I would add: Thassa, Deep-Dwelling (She will probably be cheaper when she rotates out of Standard, but she's a natural fit for the deck).

Purphoros, God of the Forge (This card won me so many games with my Riku creatures deck)

Avenger of Zendikar (Also a win con)

Solemn Simulacrum (For repeatable ramp and the bonus draw)

Prime Speaker Zegana (Draw. Even if if you copy and her and sacrifice one she's great)

Mystic Snake (You don't really have counters here. This one costs a lot of mana but it has recursion potential, especially if you add things like Cackling Counterpart)

Woodfall Primus or Brutalizer Exarch are both great.

For instants and sorceries, I would cut your extra turn stuff if it is causing issues with your play group. The untap stuff like Early Harvest can be a stand-in for these, as they practically do the same thing but aren't technically extra turns. Nevertheless they can bother people.

Epic Experiment is hit or miss even in a deck with a lot more instants and sorceries. If you're going for more creatures, this should definitely be cut.

Primal Command might not make the cut (personally, if you want to combo off with creatures, I would pick Shared Summons over this anyway.)

Clone Legion costs a lot and is not consistent. I love this card, but for 9 mana, I want to win the game with some degree of certainty.

Brass's Bounty can probably go. You should be able to ramp in other ways, and this isn't an artifact deck.

I would also swap Explosive Vegetation for Migration Path, because it's strictly better. But personally I would make sure I have Rampant Growth in here before this.

As for Spitting Image, it's fine, but it is going to be on the high end of your ideal mana curve. I'd put in some cheaper clone effects first.

Let me know what you think. It might be time do a revision to the deck and see how things are looking, to get a clearer picture of the direction it's going and what it still needs.

Hi! Sultai_Sir here. I love this deck! Here are some suggestions:

Displace, Ghostly Flicker, etc: You're running a bunch of clones, and if you add in a blink subtheme, you can copy utility creatures in the early game and then blink them back as Elesh Norns and Void Winnowers.

Clone Legion: From a purely Vorthos standpoint, this card seems like the biggest flavor win you could ask for. From a playing standpoint, copying a board of big bois just feels so good.

Snuff Out, Pongify, etc: You're really low on removal. this would help your deck get rid of problem cards that you can't deal with

I hope this advice helps, and as always, happy tapping!

In my kess deck (which I unfortunately haven't uploaded yet), my main wincon is casting a giant Torment of Hailfire, possibly copied a couple times. I've got multiple ritual cards (Pyretic Ritual, Seething Song) to produce the Mana, with a Past in Flames to recast and almost double the amount. Having out Thousand-Year Storm makes the Mana produced increase significantly and you get multiple copies of torment, and I can usually take out all of my opponents with a Hailfire on X=50+. However, sometimes just casting it for X=6 or 10 is enough to set your opponents back just to gain the advantage and use something else to win. Hope this helps give you some ideas!

Personally I don't like cards like Insurrection or Clone Legion because they cost a lot and I have never really benefited from using them. They're awesome cards and I wish they worked more often but I usually don't see a huge payoff. Also, I would take out Fabricate because in your deck there aren't any artifacts really worth searching up. Unless you're struggling for mana?

ninetoe on Allies mill

Hey. Thanks for putting this together. I play-tested it quite a bit and have some recommended improvements:

I dropped all the Stolen Identity because it is slow. You have to pay 6, then cipher it. To get your value out of it, you then have to have a creature connect in combat. I found that the deck works best to simply never attack anyway.

I also dropped all Clones: Clone Legion, Cackling Counterpart, Jwari Shapeshifter. If your gameplan is to hit with Rite of Replication for win, having more clones doesn't really benefit much and those slots can be used to speed up your game or offer defenses for yourself and your creatures.

I found that my creatures were dying too quickly as chump blockers or to red spell damage/black destruction.

For this, I added 2 copies of Steely Resolve. And to protect myself, 4 copies of Ghostly Prison

Ondu Cleric can generate a ton of life for you and buy you the time you need for your combos. Especially when you chump block with him, then use flicker him off and on the field with Ephemerate or Cloudshift. But I wanted Allies that boost the P/T of other allies so I could take out some attackers with my blockers and not have to rely on flicker gimmicks. Enter Adaptive Automaton.

I won't bore you with all of the changes I made and my reasons for each change. Here's the updated 60 card list. I appreciate the deck you posted. It lent me some great inspiration and I hope you enjoy what I've done with it:

PS: Halimar Excavator + Rite of Replication hits for 180 milled cards (assuming there are no other allies present when the combo goes off).

If you are interested in what I've done with the decklist, let me know and I'll be happy to share my reasons for some of the changes.


Ziu on Narset, Budget Commander

Thank you! I have adjusted the list a little by choosing cheaper (in terms of mana costs) mana ramp and adding some extra turns/phases. Out: Clone Legion, Dovin's Veto, Possibility Storm, Razia's Purification, and Urza's Ruinous Blast. I will have the more expensive options in mind but do not add them for now since I would like to keep this a budget version. Grateful for more advice!

TypicalTimmy on Card creation challenge

Okay, so I looked up a ton of devices and techniques and I think I settled on Bathos; "An abrupt transition in style from the exalted to the commonplace, producing a ludicrous effect. While often unintended, bathos may be used deliberately to produce a humorous effect."

Bathos, King of Jests

Legendary Creature - Demon

Flying, Lifelink

When Bathos, King of Jests enters the battlefield, destroy all other creatures. You discard your hand.

Pay all but 1 life, : For each creature in target graveyard, make a token copy of it. Put them all onto the battlefield. They gain haste.


From Damnation to Clone Legion, essentially. Massive 180, and Rakdos is not known for such a huge power play. The fact he has lifelink is completely negated by you paying all but 1 life, too. Lol

Hope that works
