For each tapped nonland permanent target opponent controls, search that player's library for a card with the same name as that permanent and put it into play under your control. Then that player shuffles his or her library.

Dichotomancy Bifurcate Clarion Ultimatum i just love these kinds of "same name" cards.

Kalit, Stratifier

Legendary Planeswalker- Kalit

As long as you control exactly two permanents with the same name, the legend rule doesn't apply to those permanents.

+1 Target creature becomes a copy of target creature you control. Repeat this process once.

-2 Return target creature card from your graveyard to the battlefield if it has the same name as a creature card on the battlefield.

-5 For each permanent each player controls, that player may search their library for a card that has the same name as that permanent and put it onto the battlefield. Shuffle your library.


Keep it going!

Didn't mean to get on your case about the mana base - I've just seen people dump a lot of money into mana trying to "fix" underoptimized decks and it makes me cringe. Sorry if I came across as rude.

I found a few relevant cards you might've missed. In particular: Dichotomancy is an even bigger bomb than Eradicate , since it can steal all the creatures from an opponent's deck instead of exiling them. Mimeofacture is similar, but requires an investment of 4 mana per creature. Splinter is an Eradicate that requires an artifact creature. And Verdant Succession works like Remembrance for green creatures, except it brings stuff directly onto the battlefield.

Other (less powerful) options: Bazaar of Wonders , Eye of Singularity , Echoing Truth , Sever the Bloodline , Declaration in Stone , Retraced Image , Bubbling Cauldron , Pack Hunt , and Reflector Mage . If you have some way to copy Spy Kit , Biovisionary and Doubling Chant could also work.

In general, I think the biggest challenge you'll face is that effects synergizing with Spy Kit are kind of all over the place. There's board wipes, removal, staxxy control, creature tutoring... but not a lot of actual finishers. You've got to make room not only for precursors to Spy Kit (draw, ramp, tutors, etc.), but stuff that can win the game.

Maybe focus on one or two archetypes for the cards enabled by Spy Kit, then pick an unrelated win con? Or fill up on stealing/copying effects that can help set up Spy Kit combos but also be used offensively? I don't know... interesting dilemma.

Dichotomancy does nothing in EDH.

Dichotomancy can work well with Elder Deep-Fiend and with the counter manipulation in the deck (Jhoira's Timebug, Clockspinning) can go off quite suddenly to break a stalled-out board. That being said, there might be something better for the spot.

Why is Dichotomancy in there?

Wildfire Eternal + Every big dumb sorcery ever. I could play Dichotomancy or Clone Legion or Cruel Ultimatum or Army of the Damned or Biorhythm or Decree of Annihilation or Crush of Wurmsbif i wanted. It wouldn't auto-win like Tooth and Nail for Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion , but they take up less slots and usually win the game anyway.

I really like your concept :) have you considered Dichotomancy, Frozen AEther, Betrayal, Borrowing 100,000 Arrows, and Psychic Venom? Have a glorious day, and stay frosty :)
