Evil Twin Discussion

In my Mirko Vosk deck I ended up cutting both Dimir Doppelganger and Evil Twin, especially the Twin, is okay to copy a Commander and keep killing it, it is awesome against something like Meren of Clan Nel Toth but it's somewhat hit or miss. Maybe Body Double, since Lazav, Dimir Mastermind has Hexproof, or the other around, since Body Double gets ETB triggers, it will heavily depend on your meta. But I'd probably go with cutting a few clones into some more control, for the same reason you don't consider Sphinx's Tutelage that good in EDH: Milling doesn't scale that well, and even the faster mill decks find some walls that need being dealt with.
And keep in mind that if someone wants to stall you, the original Eldrazi Titans, Blightsteel Colossus, Serra Avatar and such keep going back into the deck, so they might find a way to stop you from milling them, and in that case you should have a few exile spells up your sleeve. Duplicant is a good one, considering you are running clones to begin with, Phyrexian Ingester is awesome and Reality Shift is an incredibly underrated card. So if this becomes a problem in your meta in the future there's some ideas on how to deal with it.

Hi! I have some ideas. At first: lands. Sorry, but 27 lands aren't enough. I also run B/U Zombies with Gisa and Geralf and I use 37. Then creatures. I'm not sure about Havengul Runebinder. Gisa and Geralf lets you to cast creatures from your graveyard so exiling them is not a good tactics. Even if it gives +1/+1 counters to each of your Zombies. I would also make some replacements.
Body Double: there are better shapeshifters.
Stitcher Geralf: he doesn't fit this deck much.
Evil Twin: it's better than Body Double. By the way Clever Impersonator is even much better - you may copy any permanent (creatures, artifacts, planeswalkers etc.)
Ghoulcaller Gisa: her ability works well with your commander. Sacrifice a creature, put tokens, then cast the sacrificed creature from your graveyard - what do you think?
Endless Ranks of the Dead: it's really funny to swarm the table with 2/2 Zombies each turn.
Necromancer's Stockpile: another useful enchantment. Card draw + 2/2 Zombie token each turn.
Phyrexian Arena and Underworld Connections: you really need draw engines. Necropotence is even better but it won't work in this deck 'cause it exiles your discarded cards. I hope my recommendations were useful.
Check out my deck Twins of Innistrad (B/U Zombies and Shapeshifters) - maybe you'll find something interesting. Good luck!

You can consider adding in Evil Twin as commander removal. If there is an annoying commander in the game, you can cast Evil Twin, then destroy the commander the next turn, and then just leave a blue and black mana open to destroy the commander each time it comes into play. It's like the Nevermore of blue and black, except slightly slower.

UnleashedHavok I do not think Evil Twin should be in this deck. That is not because it is a bad card, but because I don't really have a way of obusing it. This dimir deck is sort of a phenomenon when it comes to these colors. If I had a more recursion based strategy or perhaps a flicker strategy (etb Evil Twin a bunch to use his ability greatly and be a greater clone), then I would consider him in the deck. This deck though, as you see, does not fit in that strategy.
In terms of Jace's Archivist, I do like the card a lot. It was in an earlier version of this deck in hopes of trying to abuse the discard strategy, but I find that this deck can't discard itself to death. I concluded at the time that I'd rather have a tutor to find the cards I need to go off. That being said, I think that the Archivist is quite good and I might include him in a later update. If I do, I would have to decide what to remove in it's place. Thank you for your input!

Have you ever thought about Evil Twin? It might be one of my favorite Dimir copy creatures. As long as you keep him on the board, which I'm sure you can, he definitely can get rid of pesky critters. Also since you have Whispering Madness, have you given Jace's Archivist any thought?

Yeah. In case you are better with lists, what it is saying is that a copy of a permanent
The printed characteristics of the card (power and toughness, name, mana cost, abilities, etc.)
ETB and Flip abilities that set one or more of the above
Face down status (copying a morph gives you a colorless 2/2 with no name, not whatever is on the front of the card.)
Will NOT copy:
Changes made by auras
Any continuous effects
Status (tapped/untapped, phased in/out etc.)
So if you copy a Felidar Cub with Aerial Modification on it you get a 1/4 without flying, If you copy a Felidar Cub with counters on it you get one with no counters, if you copy a tapped Felidar Cub you get an untapped one, if you copy a Felidar Cub with Aether Meltdown on it gives you a 1/4.

But how can we decide who the real one is??
