Lazav, the Shadow
Legendary Creature - Shapeshifter Rogue
As long as you control a permanent that's a clone or copy of another permanent, Lazav, the Shadow has hexproof and can't be blocked.
When Lazav, the Shadow deals combat damage to a player, you may search your library for a card, shuffle your library, and put that card on top.
3 / 3
Lasav, the ultimate infiltrator. He gets in with the help of cloned/copied members of the enemy guilds, gets the information he needs, then gets out. Clean and efficient. Balanced because it doesn't draw the card you searched for, and because the unblockable/hexproof needs to be set up by a clone/copy mechanic on the battlefield, which may not always be advantageous in the early game (who are you going to copy with your Altered Ego, Clone, and Unstable Shapeshifter? That little Llanowar Elves? Though, Mirrormade works in this deck too, if you don't mind copying people's mana rocks at this point in the game). Without haste, your opponents still have time to react to it. It'll be a tricky deck to pilot. But it's so very Dimir: the information you get (i.e. the card you search for) isn't revealed. The Dimir keep their secrets.
Make another clone/copy permanent card in the vein of some of the blue cards I named above. Give it a spin.

There's a commander deck I want to build but first I wanted to be sure of the rules interaction. I'm fairly sure this is how it works, but my Googling yielded no results so i'm just asking it myself. So, lets say I have Roalesk, Apex Hybrid and I decide to use Clone on it. I'm fairly sure it plays out like this.The clone Rolesk enters the battlefield. Before priority would be given, the legend state based effect kicks in and I have to put one of them into the graveyard. I choose to put the cloned version in the yard. Now that all state based effects are clear and I regain priority, triggers go onto the stack. The cloned Rolesk's ETB of putting on counters and his dies trigger to proliferate twice should go at the same time. Since they're put on at the same time I can order them as I see fit. So I could put both counters on the original Rolesk and then proliferate twice. Am I correct in that's how it works for clone effects and token producers? Any and all help is always appreciated.

Clone is a bad example... let's stick with Sakashima copying Palinchron for my above post lol.

Not exactly - if we take Altered Ego - which is the closest thing to blue/green clone card, it has two abilities - one to enter the battlefield as a copy of a creature and one to enter with extra counters on it. Which of the two abilities is green and which is blue? It is clear - blue cannot put counters on its creatures willy-nilly and green cannot copy creatures like that. The "can't be countered" is primary in avaialable for both colors.
Or Evil Twin - the destroy ability is black, while the shapeshifter ability is blue. Or Dack's Duplicate having red's marquee haste ability, while being a blue shapeshifter (dethrone was grixis in that set).
All of the cards highlighted above are non-creatures that do not enter the battlefield and thus are not Clone - a 0/0 creature that enters the battlefield as a copy.

No, Last_Laugh is correct: they use the "create token" type of clone when it wouldn't work on a creature. This can sometimes happen because of graveyard interactions, or because the card intends to create multiple copies, like Quasiduplicate or Cackling Counterpart . So, if Spitting Image didn't have Retrace, it wouldn't need to be sorcery.
Since the proposed card is just a plain Clone , it's fine as a nontoken copy.

I recently have become very fond of Riku of Two Reflections , so I have designed two signature spells for him, as seen, below:
Riku's Reflection Show
Copy target instant or sorcery spell; you may choose new targets for the copy.
This spell was inspired by Nature's Chant , which is a combination of Naturalize and Disenchant , and is strictly better than both of them. It is a combination of Twincast and Reverberate , being strictly better than both of them.
Riku's Replicant Show
Creature - shapeshifter
You may have Riku's replicant enter the battlefield as a copy of any creature on the battlefield.
This card is a variant of Clone , but with a more flexible casting cost.
Obviously, both of these cards are designed to be used with Riku, himself, so what does everyone else think of them?

No. These two cards do not interact as Pramikon's ability is not a triggered enters the battlefield" effect, but a replacement effect that modifies how it enters the battlefield. The slight difference means in practice two things:
- Pramikon's ability cannot be countered with Stifle .
- It cannot be doubled by Panharmonicon or Strionic Resonator as it is not an ability that goes on the stack.
This functions similarly to Clone cards, which enter the battlefield as copies of the relevant cards.
