Metallic Mimic Discussion

Murphy77 on Selesnya (GW) Cats (Hour of Devestation)

Yes- it is always a toss-up. If you can get 3 Anointed Procession on the field, every time you embalm or eternalize a creature you get 8 copies. That is some serious swarm. The problem is the space that they take up in the deck. In a similar deck, I actually went with the green monument (cant think of it's name off-hand) but Oketra's Monument certainly adds another dimension. What I liked about Anointed Procession is the number of 1/1 cats with life-link that you can get onto the field.

My personal preference would drop Oketra the True in favour of 2 more Regal Caracal or Adorned Pouncer (even though the effect of Pouncer will most likely only come into play a bit later in the game). With Regal Caracal and Metallic Mimic boosting your cats and Anointed Procession making added copies you can swarm the field with a large number of 3/3 (or higher) cat tokens with life-link. After a board-wipe, simply eternalize Adorned Pouncer to get an army of 4/4 (+) zombies with double-strike.

Hyperalgialysis if you check my "Cards Already Considered" list you'll find all those Madness cards have already been looked at.

Rhys_Fahey I can only put so many Minotaur cards in this deck.

I prefer what all the other ones offer, compared with the two you mentioned.

Particularly Warfire Javelineer, as it's very situational.

Combat Celebrant is a no go. The synergy between Metallic Mimic, Neheb, the Worthy, and all the other Minotaurs is the heart of this deck.

Argy on Servos for the win

6 hours ago

Done some more extensive playtesting and I found that I often wanted to play a 2 drop, and had none in hand.

I would suggest adding some Metallic Mimics to the deck. Most of the time you will choose "Servo" when you play them, but there may be occasions in the end game where chosing something else will let you push through the last bit of damage you need.

To accommodate them I would remove 1 of each of these cards: Aethergeode Miner, Master Trinketeer, and Solemn Recruit

They are all sort of good when they work, but not so great if there are no Servos on the field.

OK so I am dumb.

What you need in the 2 drop slot is Metallic Mimic.

If you have a look at any of the top tribal decks at the moment they are all running it as a 4 of.

After seeing your name, I have to ask: have you considered running cat tribal? You can keep some of the lifegain intact while focusing in on some of the token synergy suggested previously. Regal Caracal and Pride Sovereign are new lords, and Metallic Mimic can fill a similar role. Fill out the deck with other cats like Adorned Pouncer, Prowling Serpopard, Longtusk Cub, and Scrounging Bandar and maybe even add an Ajani or two. I can't imagine cats will be a top-tier standard deck, but a well-built version should secure some wins.

As an aside, Crested Sunmare might also be something to experiment on in lifegain.

I like your approach with this deck !

If you're looking for more protection for Reaper King, I always use Alexi's Cloak. I know it's shroud and basically kills Rite of Replication's ridiculous trigger, but... Flash is too fun to pass up.

Also, I'd run Conspiracy instead of Xenograft. The creatures don't enter the battlefield as scarecrows with Xenograft.

I have to admit I'm very surprised you don't run Scarecrone and Wingrattle Scarecrow though. Combine them with Metallic Mimic, and as long as you have mana, you basically have an infinite trigger. Sacrifice Wingrattle, Persist activates, the -1/-1 is nullified by Metallic Mimic's effect, rinse repeat.

Just ideas :)

I'm glad to see the work you've put into this deck since my first visit. Nice job!

tru13, Solemnity will also nerf our own playset of Metallic Mimic. It will be a good sideboard option for white from this block (against Temur Energy and BG Snake at a minimum), but it may do more harm than good in this particular deck as we are also trying to use +1/+1 counters.

The Amonkhet cycling lands give us Scattered Groves in the appropriate colors; it doesn't necessarily help in the early game plan since it comes in tapped, but it adds value late in the game when you can cycle it away. I'm not recommending it since your deck is a great budget build, just mentioning it for all the visitors.

And as an honorable mention, Ajani Unyielding makes for a nice on-theme draw engine in this deck.

I recommend some ways to buff up your tokens, like Coat of Arms, Adaptive Automatonand Metallic Mimic
