Creature — Shapeshifter
You may have Dack's Duplicate enter the battlefield as a copy of any creature on the battlefield except it gains haste and dethrone. (Whenever it attacks the player with the most life or tied for most life, put a +1/+1 counter on it.)
Dack's Duplicate Discussion

You can, if you like, create custom sort categories by adding a # in your edit list (eg. "1x City of Brass #Land") and then setting >Edit >Default category >Custom
Here are some houses:
Herald of Secret Streams ... where'd this go?
Dack's Duplicate ... +1/+1 clone
Spark Double ... +1/+1 clone
Mulldrifter ... if is too much then play this
Treasonous Ogre ... seems good
Reef Worm ... endless worms
Spawning Pit ... you can sacrifice the Spawn tokens to recoup 1/2 the value if they're wiped
Yahenni, Undying Partisan ... it never leaves the board so expect 10+/10+
Toothy, Imaginary Friend ... yes
Midnight Reaper ... yes
Burnished Hart ... do not underestimate this
Goblin Bombardment ... yes
You could also try playing some big beefs that are wipe oriented like...
To play aggressively, Marchesa needs evasive creatures with double strike ...or maybe even...
Flesh-Eater Imp ... I have one, you should try it out
Grafted Exoskeleton ... sacrifice might be nice
Viral Drake ... proliferating your +1/+1 counters would be pretty sweet
...Keep in mind Infect replaces damage so either make it a core theme or only play the ones that can get to 10 Infect quickly.
Demons would also be pretty sweet:
Defiler of Souls ... make them sacrifice
Demon of Wailing Agonies ... make them sacrifice
Havoc Demon ... wipe
Kothophed, Soul Hoarder ... draw to get off the throne?
Krav, the Unredeemed ... seems good
Lord of the Void ... betrayal
Malfegor ... wipe?
Rakdos, the Showstopper ... wipe
Reaper from the Abyss ... removal
Rune-Scarred Demon ... tutor
Silent-Blade Oni ... betrayal
Liliana's Contract ... hilarous

Clones are an option here too, I typically end up cloning my own stuff in Marchesa. Spark Double can copy Marchesa for double Dethrone. Dack's Duplicate is also really good here. Phyrexian Metamorph / Phantasmal Image are also good options but aren't as budget friendly.
Vindictive Lich is also really good here and gives you a win-con outside of combat.

@carpecanum, I've slowly reworked a lot of this deck away from outright X cost hydra's and started using more of the combo pieces to really pump Animar. Thanks for the Dack's Duplicate , It found it's way in nicely since there are plenty of value creatures it can utilize now!

Congratulations for your deck! I like the idea of cloning stuff, and I am still trying to find a build that works. If I can give you a hint, prefer cards that can clone any creature on the field over the cards that can only clone your creatures (everyone should have a Consecrated Sphinx , right? Not only your opponent).
I don't feel like would help you much with cloning. The best (and maybe only) white card that refers to cloning is Mirrorweave .
If you look at https://edhrec.com/themes/clones, you will see that almost all clone effects are blue: Clone , Vizier of Many Faces , Gigantoplasm , Vesuvan Shapeshifter , Body Double , Mirror Image , Supplant Form , Blatant Thievery , Clone Legion , Mirror Match . If you want to copy spells aswell, Insidious Will , Swarm Intelligence and Spelltwine are there for you.
gives you Evil Twin and all black tutors and removal.
gives you Altered Ego , Progenitor Mimic , Spitting Image and all of green ramp and removal. For me, it is the best color to splash on a blue clone deck, because it also allows the Biovisionary alternative win-condition.
As long as commander suggestions are concerned, here are some ideas:
Riku of Two Reflections is the go-to clone commander. He has all the relevant colors for cloning (), but he is crazy expensive at 20 dollars, so it might be good to consider other options:
You can have Keiga, the Tide Star as your commander. This way, you can clone him and let the copy Keiga die to the legend rule. When the Keiga copy dies, you can steal an opponent's creature, while still having the original Keiga.
You can have Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer as your commander. He is a win condition by himself, giving tokens haste and making all of them bigger. Red gives you a lot of token generators: Brass's Bounty , Flameshadow Conjuring , Storm the Vault Flip among others. Imagine creating a token copy of a Kokusho, the Evening Star , then turn all your tokens into Kokusho, then sacrificing all them to the legend rule, then draining all your oponents for lethal. Great value!
You can have Tatyova, Benthic Druid as your commander. She doesn't refer to a clone strategy, but she gives a lot of card draw by just playing lands (your hand will always be filled). You can clone Rampaging Baloths and Avenger of Zendikar for a massive win. Also, you have access to all the blue-green clones and the Biovisionary + Rite of Replication combo.
If you want to use altogether, you might consider Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder or Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis . Yidris allows you to use Evil Twin and all the black removal. Yidris also increases the value you get from playing spells by cascading into other spells. // K&T, on the other hand, gives you card advantage and makes you less threatening while you build your board. White also gives you access to great boardwipes ( Austere Command ).
All in all, good luck in your deckbuilding and have fun!
