I would cut Glorybringer, Hellrider, Precursor Golem, Retrofitter Foundry, Heat Shimmer and Treasure Map  Flip. To start with.

I might also think about adding Mogg Infestation and Snake Basket

Breath of Fury would be infinite combat rounds

I just watched the YouTube video for this deck and I have to say, while I think the deck is brilliant in its simplicity, there were a number of cards that popped out to me that weren't mentioned that I think deserve to be in the deck, or at least deserve consideration.

First off, you covered blue duplication spells pretty well, but didn't really cover red ones. Off the top of my head there are 2 sorcery speed (I know instant is preferable) options in Heat Shimmer and Twinflame. While on the subject of duplication spells a great red creature to pair with them is Dualcaster Mage for infinite token copies of himself. One the note of token-creating creatures, I was extremely surprised that Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker didn't make the cut.

Watching the video got me thinking about an old deck I had with Mirrorwing Dragon and Zada, Hedron Grinder, where I would utilize its ability with a token strategy and duplication tricks. Having several creatures on the board and hitting Mirrorwing with Heat SHimmer to duplicate my whole board was always my favorite trick with the deck. I think that tactic would fit in nicely here.

Here's how I think about this commander: You want two types of creature token. A) ones that are cheap/free to flood the board and B) ones that are copies of cool creatures with abilities you can exploit.

Your A Column is pretty solid. The only one I'd add is Genesis Chamber and/or The Locust God... Things that make Treasure or Clue tokens are pretty good because they'll add value OR attack. Additionally, Since lots of your small creatures are on ETB trigers Panharmonicon could be good.

Your Column B is so-so. You've got Feldon of the Third Path and Helm of the Host, but those are pretty slow and obvious. Mimic Vat, Heat Shimmer, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Rite of Replication, Supplant Form, Cackling Counterpart, Zndrsplt's Judgment and Fated Infatuation all could get you the token you need to make a deadly strike out of nowhere. An interesting combo here could be Precursor Golem so targeted instants make TONS of copies if you turn your army into golems. Creatures with Embalm and Eternalize Mechanics could fall into this category, too.

There's a Column C, too, I guess, which is creatures that get Attack triggers. Inferno Titan and Frost Titan come to mind, but just things to go ham when all your weenies turn into that thing.

Great Brew, man! I wish you luck and I look forward to how this evolves!

+1! Love your list a ton!

How about trying out Dualcaster Mage? It goes infinite with most of your clone effects like Heat Shimmer & Twinflame and instantly wins games. It can also stop counterspells by copying them and targetting the original counterspell with the copy, and also just be good fun!

Bxbx Well there are 30+ token producers in the deck, and 10+ ways to produce a token of one of the 8 payoff cards. It's actually quite reliable.

DrkNinja That's not how Heat Shimmer tokens work. The exile effect is not part of the token's rule text, so it only applies to the initial copied token.

Hi lexavian! Yeah Zada is really neat to target with flicker spells, it flickers all your allies! Stuff like Heat Shimmer, Twinflame, and Cackling Counterpart are good with both Zada and General Tazri too.

Anyways, you can reply on your deck's page. I like to tag the person I'm talking to like so: [^[^user: onehitterquiter^]^] (without the carrots). You can tag cards that way too, by putting "card: " instead of user.
