Take out: Body Double, Diluvian Primordial, Frost Titan, Identity Thief, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir (cuz screw Teferi), Supplant Form, Back from the Brink, Volition Reins, Chromatic Lantern (cuz reasons).

Yeah so obviously you need to take out some more cards, especially to draw some cards cuz you don't have enough of that but here's a start

I love the intention behind this. I really wanna see that karaoke. One important point: As far as I know, EDHrec doesn't include data from tappedout, so uploading lists here will only help in providing awesome lists, but it won't count towards the 600.


Now to the topic:

Clones seems the way to go indeed. Helm of the Host is interesting for Alirios, as are Followed Footsteps and maybe Clone Legion. Also: Infinite Reflection, Minion Reflector, Mirror Mockery, Stolen Identity, Zndrsplt's Judgment. And permanent flicker sources should be useful, as well: Conjurer's Closet, Deadeye Navigator, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling. Oh, and if there ever was a deck to include Identity Thief, this is it.

Oh, btw, much easier combo to understand than Teshar: Identity Thief allows you to take infinite combat steps by copying Medomai the Ageless !

I feel like this absolutely needs Identity Thief and a Delirium package. However, I think that this is more just a flavor thing, so I’ll say the above, Dark Impostor , Dimir Doppelganger , Arcane Adaptation , and the classic Bogbrew Witch , Festering Newt , and Bubbling Cauldron package. Laboratory Maniac is super flavorful as well.

But since you look to be going with some heavy black synergies... have you considered The Haunt of Hightower as a commander? It’s definitely, imo, the coolest Halloween-themed commander, being both super cool and very spooky. Still, I understand if you have an attachment to the Reaper King after so long.

I don't really see the point of the +1/+1 subtheme here. I think more flicker effects could be better instead. Think cards like Conjurer's Closet , Deadeye Navigator , Displace , Essence Flux , Ghostly Flicker , Illusionist's Stratagem , Teferi's Time Twist , Voidwalk . Heck, even Identity Thief kinda fits this bill. Otherwise, just add more ETB effects. I notice there's no Coiling Oracle in here and I'm pretty shocked. Maybe some more removal would be prudent. Putrefy at the very least, more (3-5 instant speed removal spells) is probably better.

So cards I think are worth cutting are most things that have to do w/ +1/+1 counters. Winding Constrictor Skatewing Spy , Ivy Lane Denizen , Bred for the Hunt , Hardened Scales , potentially Evolution Sage . There's a few other counters cards that could be considered for cuts but have enough synergy with the rest of the deck to be fine. I'd also think about cutting down on the token subtheme as well. I don't see Verdant Force being that helpful. There's not enough cards that trigger on "whenever a creature ETB" in here for tokens to be really worth it, I think. Speaking of cards that trigger "when creature ETB" I don't really like Death Match or Season of Growth (or for that matter Hedonist's Trove ) in here. These cards don't really do enough for you or let your opponents do something bad to you, potentially. Once again, I'd look to put in more ETB effects or I'd look to add in a few instants and sorceries that do things you want to do in any deck (removal, board wipe, card draw, ramp, tutors, etc.)

Overall, this deck looks really fun. I hope to play against it someday.

Hey! Cool deck. Do Clone Legion and Identity Thief have an argument to make for being in the 99? Duplicant can also exile something as it enters, before copying.
