Salty_Sauce on Shapeshifter Mill ( First Commander deck)

3 weeks ago

There's Fraying Sanity . Overall Cry of the Carnarium and Ritual of Soot is super weak in commander. Hard board wipes like Cyclonic Rift Plague Wind Damnation are much better. Phenax, God of Deception is a great mill machine with either Eater of the Dead and consuming aberation. Diluvian Primordial is a great card along with Rhystic Study (which should be in every blue deck). There is Reality Shift which can exile commanders unlike Cast Down . Gilded Lotus for extra ramp. Tomebound Lich isn't that great in commander it's just got a really small body. Just a spew list of cards I think would be good for the deck: Mutilate Defile Clever Impersonator Evil Twin Wayfarer's Bauble Burnished Hart Lim-Dul's Vault (only if you include a combo) Lilliana of the Dark Realms + Torment of Hailfire I know that this is a very long list just trying to guide you toward what commander looks like!

Using Ramos, Dragon Engine means this may have a home here, Door to Nothingness . But only if you would like an alt-win con. A more serious suggestion for the deck is putting Academy Ruins in here to perma-lock Mindslaver on one opponent. Another good one I have always liked in a deck type like this is Capsize . It lets you get back into your hand cards like Agent of Treachery or Evil Twin to use them again. Or temporarily get rid of things you don't want in play.

DemonDragonJ on Will there Ever Be a ...

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 ?

fadelightningmm on Who is the better clones ...

I was wondering with the introduction of Volrath, the Shapestealer is He a better leader for a clone/ steal stuff tribal deck?

Currently Sakashima the Impostor is the clone commander. Is the addition of green and black worth the switch?

As far as new clones it does give access to Progenitor Mimic Evil Twin and Altered Ego .

Thoughts?

I find it easier to find budget options once you have a commander, strategy and what you want the deck to do

Congratulations for your deck! I like the idea of cloning stuff, and I am still trying to find a build that works. If I can give you a hint, prefer cards that can clone any creature on the field over the cards that can only clone your creatures (everyone should have a Consecrated Sphinx , right? Not only your opponent).

I don't feel like would help you much with cloning. The best (and maybe only) white card that refers to cloning is Mirrorweave .

If you look at https://edhrec.com/themes/clones, you will see that almost all clone effects are blue: Clone , Vizier of Many Faces , Gigantoplasm , Vesuvan Shapeshifter , Body Double , Mirror Image , Supplant Form , Blatant Thievery , Clone Legion , Mirror Match . If you want to copy spells aswell, Insidious Will , Swarm Intelligence and Spelltwine are there for you.

gives you Mirror Match , Dack's Duplicate , Dualcaster Mage , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Protean Raider , Flameshadow Conjuring and Sunbird's Invocation .

gives you Evil Twin and all black tutors and removal.

gives you Altered Ego , Progenitor Mimic , Spitting Image and all of green ramp and removal. For me, it is the best color to splash on a blue clone deck, because it also allows the Biovisionary alternative win-condition.

As long as commander suggestions are concerned, here are some ideas:

Riku of Two Reflections is the go-to clone commander. He has all the relevant colors for cloning (), but he is crazy expensive at 20 dollars, so it might be good to consider other options:

You can have Keiga, the Tide Star as your commander. This way, you can clone him and let the copy Keiga die to the legend rule. When the Keiga copy dies, you can steal an opponent's creature, while still having the original Keiga.

You can have Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer as your commander. He is a win condition by himself, giving tokens haste and making all of them bigger. Red gives you a lot of token generators: Brass's Bounty , Flameshadow Conjuring , Storm the Vault  Flip among others. Imagine creating a token copy of a Kokusho, the Evening Star , then turn all your tokens into Kokusho, then sacrificing all them to the legend rule, then draining all your oponents for lethal. Great value!

You can have Tatyova, Benthic Druid as your commander. She doesn't refer to a clone strategy, but she gives a lot of card draw by just playing lands (your hand will always be filled). You can clone Rampaging Baloths and Avenger of Zendikar for a massive win. Also, you have access to all the blue-green clones and the Biovisionary + Rite of Replication combo.

If you want to use altogether, you might consider Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder or Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis . Yidris allows you to use Evil Twin and all the black removal. Yidris also increases the value you get from playing spells by cascading into other spells. // K&T, on the other hand, gives you card advantage and makes you less threatening while you build your board. White also gives you access to great boardwipes ( Austere Command ).

All in all, good luck in your deckbuilding and have fun!

Hey there! Let’s see if I can help...

Mana-Doublers: I’d start with Crypt Ghast and Bubbling Muck . Cheap and efficient. Definitely somewhere to start. If you have some cash to spend, invest in Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . That combo doubles all your lands since they all become swamps so your islands would produce U + B, and swamps would produce B + B.

Some flexible creatures: Clever Impersonator , Clone , Evil Twin , Duplicant , Dimir Doppelganger , and Havengul Lich are all good “copiers”.

Chill would be a dope sidebord card to use when you play against that mono-red deck.

A crazy idea and a stunt I like to pull in one of my decks is run Tunnel Vision to use on yourself as a tutor (the card you name ends up on top of your library) and then you’re also putting cards in your graveyard which is what you want to do.

+1 good luck!
