I would suggest Mirror Gallery

1: I want to know if copying Etrata, the Silencer would be null/void when Mirror Gallery is in play.

I don't think you are using the words null and void correctly. First, they don't really apply to this situation--you can still field a Clone if doing so would implicate the legend rule. It's not always a great idea, but it would not be a nullity.

So long as Mirror Gallery is in play, you will be able to field a Clone copying Etrata, the Silencer and the original Etrata, the Silencer.

While a Mirror Gallery is in play, Rule 704.5j does not apply(If a player controls two or more legendary permanents with the same name, that player chooses one of them, and the rest are put into their owners’ graveyards. This is called the “legend rule.”).

This means you can have to legends with the same name. A card's name is one of its copiable values, so Clone will have the name Etrata, the Silencer if that is what is being copied. In the absence of Mirror Gallery, the Legend Rule would be implicated, and you would have to send one of these cards to the graveyard.

2: Does [sic] Clone-like cards trigger Mirror Gallery?

Mirror Gallery is not a triggered ability--it is a continuous effect. Cards do not "trigger" Mirror Gallery, its effect occurs so long as Mirror Gallery is in play. Even if there are no permanents that would be subject to the Legend Rule, Mirror Gallery is happily sitting there, modifying the Rule.

3: Do copies of Etrata's effect also count for the number of overall Hit Counters?

I presume you mean

Etrata, the Silencer's kill condition only cares about (1) cards the potentially losing player owns, (2) that have a hit counter on them, and (3) are in exile. If you copy the ability with Strionic Resonator, you will still have the entire ability resolve, which includes the component about an opponent losing the game.

4: What would you recommend for Arcane Laboratory?

Your question is a bit vague. What would I recommend cutting for the copy you are running? What would I recommend to deal with an opponent's copy of arcane laboratory? I presume the first, but that's not clear from your post.

  1. would Arcane Laboratory + Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir + Knowledge Pool be good here? I wonder how it locks down stuff though

Arcane Laboratory + Knowledge Pool locks down an opponent as follows:

Your opponent casts a card--this is their first spell cast that turn. Knowledge Pool causes that card to be exiled. A player can normally choose to cast another card exiled by Knowledge Pool, but, because of Arcane Laboratory, they can only cast one spell per turn. Since they've already cast a spell, and the spell from knowledge pool would be their second spell cast, Arcane Laboratory prevents this casting.

It is important to note, both Arcane Laboratory and Knowledge Pool effect each player--so you are locking yourself out of casting spells as well.

Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir works in a similar way. After casting their first spell, Knowledge Pool triggers. In order for an opponent to cast a spell as a result of Knowledge Pool's trigger, they would have to be able to cast a spell at instant speed. Normally this is not an issue--Knowledge Pool allows sorceries and other sorcery-speed spells to be cast as part of the ability's resolution. However, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir never allows any spells cast at instant speed, even if it might otherwise be permissible to do so (instants, Miracles, Knowledge Pool. As such, your opponents can not cast spells as part of Knowledge Pool's ability.

  1. Does Mirror Gallery also target Copies of Etrata that are Legendary; if any, or are they just Copy Tokens?

Mirror Gallery does not target, it is a continuous effect, as discussed above.

With the legend rule suppressed by Mirror Gallery, you can have any number of cards named Etrata, the Silencer, be it tokens or Clones.

I would not recommend Mirror Gallery here, because it's just too fragile. If you DO find it (one of a hundred cards is a needle in a haystack), it'll probably just get destroyed anyway.

Didn't think once of it at all. I'll probably rename it soon enough; have enough plans though to deal w/… Something like "Etrata's Hitlusted Duplomancy done wrong" (This is meant to be a mimic deck for this.); but I still have a question: Does Mirror Gallery also target Copies of Etrata that are Legendary; if any, or are they just Copy Tokens?

You can have two planeswalkers with the same subtype and different names even without Mirror Gallery, but the Gallery will allow you to have two planeswalkers with the same name out, yes. This is the case as of Ixalan, when the "planeswalker uniqueness rule" was removed and all planeswalkers were errata'd to be legendary.

MarloweH on What would happen

2 weeks ago

Fist scenerio: Let’s assume you have Helm of the Host Next let’s assume you have Gideon, Champion of Justice or another “becomes a creature” planeswalker

Second scenerio: Same Gideon but with Blade of Selves and Mirror Gallery out

Let’s assume Gideon has 6 loyalty counters on it. Next it becomes a creature. Combat in each scenerio creates the respective tokens.

How do the tokens come in?

-Are they creatures or planeswalkers? -Do they have loyalty counters on them?
-If they don’t have counters on them are they 0/0s?
