Think I need more and/or stuff so here are some things for me to consider:

Clone Legion , Cyclonic Rift , Followed Footsteps .

Also Skullclamp ...

Raging_Squiggle thanks! made a few of those changes immediately. I'll have to look for slots for the other ones.

Thanks for the feedback, king-saproling! With this deck I'm just trying to rush to where I go infinite, rather than protect it too much other than counter spells and a couple other protective spells. Also, minimizing the number of creatures was another goal. Here's my thoughts on the suggestions:

Sigil Tracer doesn't do much when Mizzix isn't on the field which can happen a decent amount of the time

Depths of Desire is a free spell with 2 experience counters, but it doesn't replace itself so I think Teferi's Time Twist is better since Mizzix would return to the battlefield after a board wipe without having to cast them out again, plus TTT can be imprinted on Isochron Scepter in a pinch

Rush of Knowledge was a card I had considered but now thinking about it again, with Mizzix out, it's B: Draw 4 cards which is very efficient. I'll have to consider this more. Might swap this in for one of the creatures in the deck

Echo Storm is nice for ramping, but I like my ramp to be 2 CMC or less, so even if the spell is copied a couple times, you're late in the game where you no longer need ramp anyway

Saheeli's Artistry has a similar reasoning to Echo Storm

Supplant Form is an interesting way to protect Mizzix, but it costs a lot and if I already have 4+ experience counters I'm probably going infinite soon anyway, so having TTT would be better, especially since I can use it on Mizzix early.

Stolen Identity has a similar reasoning to Echo Storm

Clone Legion I'm not trying to win through combat, so this would be more of a protective/value play. It's unlikely most other decks are going to have creatures that would benefit my game plan, so this can be a dead card in hand most games

Hate Mirage has a similar reasoning to Clone Legion

Rite of Replication I would rather use Spark Double since I could copy Mizzix (the card's in my maybe board)

Radiate Other than Capsize and TTT, I don't think there's too many cards in my deck that this would work well with

Ghired's Belligerence I'm not making tokens other than Treasure , and to make this card worth it I already have to have a ton of experience or gone infinite on Mana at which point I should be winning already

Archaeomancer Great card, but I'm shying away from creatures. I would rather use Mystic Retrieval which is actually a card I want in the deck but I don't know what to swap out for it

So the situation is this you cast Clone Legion hold priority and cast Insidious Will . You choose to copy clone legion. So now its 2 instances of clone legion on the stack. First to resolve is the copy (insidious will), it copies your board and goes to the GY because it resolved. Your ETBs hit the stack after insidious will resolves and therefor you can target it with your new Mnemonic Wall s ETB. Insidious will returns to your hand and the original Clone legion is still on the stack. You can now hold priority to cast your Insidious will to copy the clone legion again. With infinite mana you get infinite board.

Now for the other question. You choose to resolve your original Clone legion. Same thing happens here. When you resolve the spell it hits the GY and after that your ETBs hit the stack. Clone legion is therefor in the GY when Mnemonic Wall enters, and can be targeted and returned to your hand.

I hope this made sense.

Hello, was play testing a deck I created and during a combo I got confused on how to proceed. I got a bunch of creatures onto my field with living end, Archeomancer and Mmnemonic wall were part of the creatures that hit the field, which let me return Clone Legion and Insidious Will to my hand. I went to cast clone legion, and in response used the copy effect from Will. Now the ruling for spells is:

608.2k As the final part of an instant or sorcery spell‘s resolution, the spell is put into its owner‘s graveyard. As the final part of an ability‘s resolution, the ability is removed from the stack and ceases to exist.

Now for Insidious will, to my knowledge this spell resolves first, and all it does is add another Clone legion to the stack, The card itself goes to the GY. Now the copy of the clone legion goes off first, because first in, last out. the Orig Clone legion is still on the stack, and has not been resolved. so it has not hit the GY. All my creatures are copied. giving me 2 more ETB Archeomancer effects. I therefore am able to take back Insidious Will. I am pretty sure I am unable to target the clone legion on the stack still with the returned Insidious will, but I could be wrong, and then If I had Infinite mana, I could infinitely cast Insidious will targeting clone legion if the copied Clone legion was creating an Archeomancer. Assuming I am correct and I cannot do that. The Original Clone legion resolves. And this is were I got confused. All the creatures ETB, All their ETB effects hit the stack. Once the creatures have ETB'd, does clone legion fully resolve and hit the gy so I can use the Archeomancer ETB to take it back? Or do the creatures need to finish their ETB effects before Clone legion is officially resolved, and then it hits the GY? Please help, and correct me if anything here is incorrect.

Yes, I can see the immediate benefits of using Clone Legion but wouldn't it be more of a "win more" spell? I mean, for me to get the most value out of it i'd likely need to have a very strong board presence with at least Gemhide and Heart Sliver among others. Then there's the whole Legendary issue to consider - obviously the Legendary copies would go bye bye, the biggest loss for this spell however would be that The First Sliver 's effect will not trigger as none of the clones are cast. For a spell like this, the deck would need to have more of an aggro focus for it to work - at least that's my assessment. Do you think i'm missing something with this reasoning?

I think a deck like this could really benefit from one of my favorite underused spells, Clone Legion .
