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
1 month ago
This is FearDReaper from MTG Salvation. You asked me for my thoughts:
Dack's Duplicate never really preformed all that well for me. Imo clone effects are overrated. Phantasmal Image and Phyrexian Metamorph are also kinda meh in my experience. These guys were so much better before they changed the legend rule.
I haven't played my list in a while but if I reforged it I would definitely be trying Greven, Predator Captain. He seems to fit the deck like a glove and brings some phenominal card draw to the table.
Are you comboing with Murderous Redcap? If not I don't think he's a great include. In its place I would run Ravenous Chupacabra. If you are comboing with redcap, id still try to find a place for Chuppy. He's just sooo good
A few more cards I would add are: Herald of Secret Streams, Captivating Crew, Syr Konrad, the Grim, and Olivia, Mobilized for War (I see you have her in your maybe board but in my experience she is really good)
Lastly, idk how casual/competitive your playgroup is but if you wanna be really mean you can play Jokulhaups. I wouldn't recommend it if your group is more casual though as they will absolutely hate you lol.
Feel free to pick my brain more. Preferably on this site

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.

What about Dack's Duplicate ? Would that creature be good for this deck?

Surprised it hasn't happened already honestly. Especially considering how many options there are between Simic and Dimir. I hope it's something like Dack's Duplicate with 2 relevant abilities. Flash and Flying or Flying and a 'counter stuff that targets it unless is paid' like Frost Titan ... just something useful and at .

Clone is an iconic card in this game, inspiring numerous variations of it, nearly all of which are actually superior to it (but that is an instance of “power creep,” which occurs in nearly any game), most of which are mono-blue, as is the original, but there are some multicolored variations; Evil Twin is a black/blue variation, Dack's Duplicate is a red/blue variation, and both Altered Ego and Progenitor Mimic are green/blue variations.
However, thus far, there is no white/blue variation of Clone , so I do hope that such a creature is printed eventually, since white is my favorite color in this game.
What does everyone else say about this? Will there eventually be a white/blue variant of Clone ?

Shared Animosity I'd use over Coat of Arms.
You also have access to Clone s. Stunt Double , Spark Double , Dack's Duplicate , and Clever Impersonator are some of your better budget friendly options. Seeing as this is pretty casual, also consider Altered Ego .

After looking at the deck, I do not think that I have enough instant/sorcery that I want to copy with Dualcaster Mage . I normally do not want to pay / and to copy a spell 4 times, think it’s a bit overkill. Thanks for the suggestions though. <3
