Put a token into play that's a copy of target creature. It has haste and "At end of turn, remove this permanent from the game."

I think you are right about the tempo. However, I do prefer Ignite the Future over Light Up the Stage so I switched that out for the Tower instead. Mainly for its recurrence. It is initially a temporary harmonize in red, but can then net some crazy worth with its flashback.
Yeah, the anti-synergy is negligible when you think of how rarely it would occur. When it does, Ugin's passive ability is still active which is my main purpose in playing him.
That is a cool combo, but I am in agreement with it being to difficult to assemble. A three card combo in red is rare to put together. I would much prefer adding in Godo, Bandit Warlord + Helm of the Host if I was simply going for combos. Godo tutors the other half of the combo and Helm of the Host synergizes with the ETB theme of the deck as well. I could also add in Twinflame or Heat Shimmer to go infinite with Dualcaster Mage.
Stolen Strategy is my pet card. I know it isn't a consistent card, but I love its flavor for the deck. I added a section about it in my Brewing Process section which also explains my addition of Warstorm Surge.

Someday will replace Renegade Tactics with a similar instant that gives me draw. But not this day. Not this day.

cool deck. I'd never seen Dualcaster Mage + Heat Shimmer/Twinflame combo before!
I was thinking about it and it looks like you need one other creature on the battlefield for the combo to work.
Both spells are sorcery spells that require a target when cast.
When you cast the spell first, you have to target a different creature.
then you cast dualcaster mage in response to the spell and copy the spell. The copy can then target the first dualcaster. and repeat etc.
i think i will run that combo in my red deck.

Heat Shimmer looks good and I haven't heard of it so far.
About Masterful Replication I am not sure...feels a bit expensive and I wouldn't know what to throw out for it.
Rite of Replication was already in my Maybeboard ;) If I have some spare-money I will definitely get it!

Heat Shimmer could be considered because you can create copies of opponent's creatures, too.
Masterful Replication is also good because it's second mode is a backup to Brudiclad if you don't have him in play for some reason, and if you do have him in play, you can choose the first instead.

Thanks king-saproling!! Those suggestions are great. I intentionally avoided cards that said "target creature you control", because this deck ends up giving your opponents a lot of creatures, and when the card specifies "creature you control" you can't copy a spell that targets Ink-Treader Nephilim for creatures controlled by your opponents. That being said, I love Heat Shimmer, Snap, Depths of Desire and Debt of Loyalty. Lastly, I love a good chaos deck as much as the next guy, but Dovescape, Possibility Storm and Knowledge Pool just aren't really what this particular deck is looking to do.

Nice list! Twinflame and Heat Shimmer would be all-stars here, definitely recommend them. Since they give the token copies haste, it's easy to generate infinite mana with a mana dork and something like Eternal Witness.
You might like these too: Harabaz Druid, Cackling Counterpart, Quasiduplicate, Repudiate / Replicate, Snap, Depths of Desire, Archaeomancer, Harnessed Lightning, Debt of Loyalty, Fiery Gambit, Dovescape, Possibility Storm, Knowledge Pool
