Dack's Duplicate Discussion

Boza on Riku's Reflection and Riku's Replicant

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

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

Don't forget Thraximundar and Warstorm Surge ...

Here are some houses:

Bloodtracker ... must have imo

Herald of Secret Streams ... where'd this go?

Dack's Duplicate ... +1/+1 clone

Spark Double ... +1/+1 clone

Viscera Seer ... tier 1 version of Carrion Feeder

Mulldrifter ... if is too much then play this

Treasonous Ogre ... seems good

Harvester of Souls ... + Damnation ?

Reef Worm ... endless worms

Spawning Pit ... you can sacrifice the Spawn tokens to recoup 1/2 the value if they're wiped

Drana, Liberator of Malakir ... yes... anything that lets you ignore the throne is amazing

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...

Ogre Slumlord

Overseer of the Damned

Ob Nixilis, Unshackled

Revel in Riches

If you count Merciless Executioner , Innocent Blood , etc, with wipes like Damnation , etc, you have 12 wipes and 5 removal... which is probably too much control.

To play aggressively, Marchesa needs evasive creatures with double strike ...or maybe even...

Core Prowler ... maybe

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:

Archfiend of Depravity ... wipe

Defiler of Souls ... make them sacrifice

Demon of Wailing Agonies ... make them sacrifice

Havoc Demon ... wipe

Indulgent Tormentor ... another Bloodgift Demon

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

Ravenous Demon  Flip... sacrifice Marchesa or take the 9 to get off the throne?

Reaper from the Abyss ... removal

Rune-Scarred Demon ... tutor

Silent-Blade Oni ... betrayal

Liliana's Contract ... hilarous
