Artifact Creature — Shapeshifter
Imprint - When Duplicant enters the battlefield, you may remove target nontoken creature from the game. (The removed card is imprinted on this artifact.)
As long as a creature card is imprinted on Duplicant, Duplicant has the power, toughness, and creature types of the last creature card imprinted on it. It's still a Shapeshifter.

Instead of having a lot of the bigger draw effects like Sphinx's Revelation or Blue Sun's Zenith you should be running things like Brainstorm Ponder Mystic Remora Preordain Serum Visions these are just better cards and just in general if you have blue in your deck you should almost always be running these cards.
You should take out the less impactful cards. These are cards like Pentarch Ward Reality Acid Solemn Simulacrum Palinchron Angel of Invention Clever Impersonator Phyrexian Metamorph Stonehorn Dignitary Luminate Primordial DuplicantAltar of the Brood Disdainful Stroke Counterspell Disallow Return to Dust Spine of Ish Sah. Admittedly some of these cards are good in a Brago deck and they are fun to play with. But you are neglecting the fact that you don't have enough ramp, or a consistent and wincon that can be tutored for. While you have the tangle wire and static orb combo as one wincon, you have a lot of random cards that in the end don't do that much.
In a competitive match you need to be throwing things like Thorn of Amethyst or Sphere of Resistance turn 1, because your opponent will be close to wining by turn 2 or 3. A stronger card that you need is Blind Obedience this will have more impact by itself than all the creatures you have combined. This is because your game plan is way too slow. For you to get real value out of your cards they must be on the battlefield for more than 1 turn. This is of course only if you are trying to be seriously competitive. Having oppressive cards like Ethersworn Canonist or Arcane Laboratory and other hatebears will actually make people hate you rather than a slow overtime value deck. Because this prevents them from even getting to play magic at all.

Alright I thought as much but couldn't find an answer online. I just wasn't really sure Duplicant was the one targeting.

your opponent has a creature with protection from creatures? then ask yourself, "is Duplicant a creature?". it sure is. so obviously "protection from creatures" will provide protection from Duplicant. because Duplicant is a creature. which the opponents creature has protection from...

No, this doesn't work. Protection stops 4 things: damage, enchanting/equipping, blocking, and targeting. A creature with protection from creatures can't be targeted by Duplicant's ability.

TheWallinator74, I think that Diluvian Primordial would be an excellent addition to this deck. Not only is it flexible as a 5/5, but it also lets me cast those instants that the opponent may deem necessary for their buildups.
Duplicant and Clever Impersonator are definitely intriguing to me. The sole reason I used Stunt Double was to attempt at taking a lower-cost approach to this deck; however, I do want to be able to use Clever Impersonator for certain in the future.
Luminate Primordial seems like a card that would take a little bit to get out, and by that time, I'll already have things like Rishadan Brigand, as I don't want the opponent to benefit from what I'd be doing. However, I do see your reasoning. I'll consider it in the future.
Thank you for the suggestions! I appreciate it.

Also, once it becomes a copy of Duplicant it loses it's ability to copy things, so you have to activate that ability multiple times at once so that the ability is already on the stack when the first one resolves.
