Mimic Vat


Imprint Whenever a nontoken creature is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, you may exile that card. If you do return each other card exiled with Mimic Vat to its owner's graveyard.

3, Tap: Put a token onto the battlefield that's a copy of the exiled card. It gains haste. Exile it at the beginning of the next end step.

Mimic Vat Discussion

quadmiller7 on Ally commander

Mimic Vat (helps with triggering ally stuff every turn), Steely Resolve, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar (if you can afford it). Harsh Mercy seems like it belongs here. If your meta has a large number of board wipes Ghostway is a complete blowout. I also prefer Vindicate to Utter End exile is better but in commander sometimes it is a land that needs to die and that flexibility is huge. (it also could be you want both) Also don't forget that changelings are every tribe so Mirror Entity and to a lesser extent Chameleon Colossus are great finishers in any tribal commander deck. The last thing i would recommend would be to cut a few of the crappier allies for Clone type cards and consider adding Restoration Angel for combat tricks and saving creatures from removal. All in all tho a very solid deck :)

Hey Jumbo! I love your Temmet build! :DI tried to get to my own version and I came to the conclusion of a more shapeshifting version, so I have some recommendations.

I love to have a little Clone-creature package in my deck with the idea, to copy either my creatures and artifacts OR the best creature of my opponents. With these clones on my side, I have different targets for Fated Infatuation and Cackling Counterpart to get token-copies and populating them.For this trick, I like to conscript my opponents degenerate creatures with Bribery and Desertion. It generates a huge temposwing and you run away with every copy you generate of the stolen creature.Talking clones, I wondered how you didn't put Phyrexian Metamorph into this deck! :D It generates you new targets to make token-copies from with Cogwork Assembler, Saheeli's Artistry and even Mechanized Production

Maybe it depends on the time you recorded the video, but some of the strongest cards to add to the deck are additions from Amonkhet like Angel of Sanctions and especially Vizier of Many Faces. The Vizier is the best clone creature since Clever Impersonator because you can embalm it to get a token-copy, which you can populate gets doubled by Anointed Procession.

On behalf of value targets, I really like Wurmcoil Engine. Make two copies with Saheeli's Artistry, Cogwork Assembler and generate two 3/3 tokens constantly with Mimic Vat if Wurmcoil died. Nasty stuff right here.Another crazy thing is Frost Titan. One titan is really meh, but throwing out copies entering and attacking locks down the board easily if not handled early. Talking "throwing out copies", Blade of Selves can be tutored with Stoneforge Mystic and triggers many ETB effects at once, even though the tokens go away at the end of combat!

Ok I dropped Mimic Vat for Sterling Grove Because I had mimic vat in there specifically to work with growing ranks to copy any creature with the upkeep trigger. And I'm considering dropping Butcher of Malakir for Avenger of Zendikar because I'm already running Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos.

First of all.... I'm jealous that you have a foil Doubling Season.Have you considered Wurmcoil Engine in my Trostani it is basically a "don't attack me" if I can get it under Mimic Vat.Same goes for Sun Titan. I underestimated it, but it's a big body that, again, paired with Mimic Vat is a game changer. Especially the ability to get back lands at the very least. Not to mention both give you 6 life each time you use them. Ashnod's Altar is definitely helpful to pump your mana, especially with tokens, or just for those moments when you need that little bit extra

RumAndCoke on Atraxa, Angel of Proof

I have a few suggestions that I think would help speed this deck up and make it even deadlier than it already is.

Cards I think you could live without:

My first suggestion is to add 4 or 5 more land. 31 land is very low, especially for a four color build, and missing land drops will hinder your game plan significantly.

Land suggestions:

Second suggestion is to consider more mana ramp. Having great ramp is essential to a quick, efficient start. Starting off slow will usually get you killed.

Ramp suggestions:

Third suggestion is cards I like for this theme. Just a few badass toys for your deck to mess around with.

Fun card suggestions:

Winterblast, they would be fun, there just isn't any room for them atm, may very well be cards I look at later, I make changes all the time bc I've played this deck for so many years. Jace, the Mind Sculptor just recently came out, I still keep him in the Oloro binder, destined to find his way back one day...Tezzeret the Seeker on the other hand, isn't one i've ever looked at for the deck, but I could see where it would be fun...Isochron Scepter, Mimic Vat, Aetherflux Reservoir. could be a great way to tutor + play it. the Words of Wind would be a lot better if I didn't have to retrun my things aswell...with the rumor of Cyclonic Rift possibly getting the ban it wouldn't be a bad replacement when that time comes. Words of Worship would be fun, but not needed...how much life I have doesn't really matter with the deck, as long as I just get the triggers, and also I need my cards lol. thanks for your input though.
