Durable Handicraft Discussion
3 days ago
I made a deck very similar. I used Durable Handicraft instead of Metallic Mimic, and I threw in Skyship Plunderer and Shapers of Nature as well, instead of The explore cards you have here. The question you have to ask yourself with this deck though, is what happens if you don't draw Herald of Secret Streams? I answered that question with Lifecrafter's Gift. If you can't make your creatures unblockable, then you just have to make them as big as you can.

First, this deck is already slow because of the set up it takes to get out Nest of Scarabs and Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip, which sets up on Turn 4 with Channeler Initiate. With Rishkar, Peema Renegade, I would actually see less benefit early game. Late game, I may see more available mana, but a transformed Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip available on Turn 5 will let me Torment of Hailfire for as much as 10 in perfect conditions.
Second: To really maximize potential with Rishkar, Peema Renegade, I felt that I needed to combo it with Durable Handicraft or Metallic Mimic so that I could extend my mana generation to my insect tokens as well. Instead of investing into that combo, I decided to add in some extra removal to ensure that I can react to threats or limit the non-land permanents my opponent has to sacrifice to Torment of Hailfire.

I had a feeling that would be the case with Mimic. I ran Durable Handicraft in my GB constrictor, dont know how I forgot about it here. Ill try and tweak it around to make room. I might go down in creature by 1 or 2 which would help Champion as well. Thanks man!

Durable Handicraft is a much better option than Metallic Mimic in the games that I have played so far. After about 50 games give or take just a few, I found Metallic never stayed around long enough to benefit the other Merfolk. However, few people ran enough or any enchantment hate to stop Durable Handicraft. Just an idea you might want to play test.

This is very similar to the Merfolk tribal I have created in standard, the gearhulk was a nice touch here and something I might consider for a late game card. One suggestion I have after extensive play testing over the past few days is that Metallic Mimic does almost nothing for the deck. I tried to use him and he was always immediately taken out off the battlefield when played early, and that's when it matters for him to resolve. What I decided to do was go up to 3 Kopala, adding in some resistance to spells, and add in Durable Handicraft. There is a lot less enchantment targeting spells in standard metas, and it basically has the same effect on gameplay as metallic mimic at a fraction of the cost. You should also consider having at least 3 Heralds of you want to maximize the chances of the desired unblockable effect.

Fun list. I love big tokens, but I've never really tried them in EDH. Cool to see someone running them.
While not a token producer, Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist can be extremely good in a token strategy.
If there's any prison decks or artifact combo in your meta, packing some additional removal like Oblivion Ring, Return to Dust, Sylvan Reclamation or Qasali Pridemage (the latter of which can be imprinted on Mimic Vat) might be useful.

Here is a funny combo I did in draft once that I am able to do in my anafenza counters deck, so Animation Module + Durable Handicraft/ Cathars' Crusade and enough mana = an instant board if you have something like Crystalline Crawler and the crusade it is just an infinitely increasing sized board. I felt it was quite funny because the deck is also has a tarkir theme to it basically when kaladesh came out I had the deck enter the industrial age of technological development in some cases it jumped to future era level of developement

I'm with Nzero on this one, I like the idea of it, but I can't imagine that this is going to be the greatest in early game.
Meanwhile, I do have a couple of concerns. First among them being that this is a standard deck, but you don't have anything in for sideboard. Second, I'm kind of curious why you have in Rishkar, Peema Renegade and Durable Handicraft. I can see where you might go with it, but I can't quite see that working early enough to be worth it.
