Lazav, Dimir Mastermind

Legendary Creature — Shapeshifter

Hexproof

Whenever a creature card is put into an opponent's graveyard from anywhere, you may have Lazav, Dimir Mastermind become a copy of that card except its name is still Lazav, Dimir Mastermind, it's legendary in addition to its other types, and it gains hexproof and this ability.

I've always wanted to do a shapeshifter tribal with Mimeoplasm at the helm, but my friends aren't too fond of mirror matches. Jokes aside, Death's Shadow and Force of Savagery are great for putting counters on Mimeoplasm, and Pathrazer of Ulamog makes for a great thing to morph into. Since this is self-mill of big creatures, Lazav, Dimir Mastermind and Body Double might also be good adds.

checkforloot Sorry for my late answer, but thanks to you as well for taking your time to look at my deck ! :) I took a look at your deck as well. I like your idea of having more "controlling" elements. I already thought about splashing green before, but i like Lazav, Dimir Mastermind so much that i decided against green here. :)

Barsan thank you for the suggestions! I will consider adding some of those cards. Especially, Lazav, Dimir Mastermind and Mesmeric Orb.

So far this has won with the infinite Paradox Engine + Capsize in a three pod casual, where I was getting pretty beat up about the face with few blockers, and poof, responses to capsize buyback? Okay, rinse and repeat for all your permanents and all yours next. Cost to playing that deck? Changed out for a less built-up deck and was decimated for the previous play. It was worth it. :)

Won one with the near infinite loop dug up by all dug up by Planar Bridge, first to Darksteel Forge then Unwinding Clock then, Mycosynth Lattice + Nevinyrral's Disk, which happened right before a fatal swing in 1 v 1 edh. Not that I had a whole lot of threats, but the next thing would be Lazav, Dimir Mastermind cast and dig for Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas to animate all the indestructible artifacts. I even let this opponent know how many total turns once I was within 3 turns of going off. Of course that's when everything was already indestructible and my bridge was on the board.

So far I've only harassed people with Oona, Queen of the Fae and Hostage Taker, and really think Hostage Taker is an easier infinite loop for me to hit. Basically changed the tactics up from ramp mill/hand hate to build to one of my win cons passively, then explode and make the board hate me only after I've hit for the win. And they're scalable, so I can kill one player or multiple players at a time. Heck, if I get this monstrosity out: Unwinding Clock, Paradox Engine both out, with Mycosynth Lattice, and Leyline of Anticipation, then I'll be having fun during everyone else's turn too, with flash/instant speed getting rid of my hand or dig for a response if someone plays hand hate.

Speed in getting the mana base up and running, because until then, I'm very vulnerable to control and counterspells, and to mana rock hate. Anything not horribly expensive to get me there turn 3 or 4?

Intruder Alarm is pretty nice with Phenax and the ability to place creatures and at the very least it can limit your opponents from Swinging, while you get to make another creature every turn.

Phyrexian Metamorph and Clever Impersonator let you use the Scarab to copy non-creature permanents.

Lazav, Dimir Mastermind is brilliant in any mill deck, especially one that could recur him.

Sewer Nemesis, like Consuming Aberration, won't make a very good zombie but he gets just as big in 1v1, and still pretty huge in multiplayer... plus you can use your own yard if your opponents don't have one.

True-Name Nemesis Would appreciate the 4/4 body.

I would also consider Mesmeric Orb and, if you can stomach the cost, Ensnaring Bridge is useful too. Both of these cards protect you and let you rely on your Scarab Clock instead of dealing direct damage.
