Mirrorwing Dragon Discussion

I don't think you have enough instant-speed stuff to justify Seedborn Muse. She's so strong though. Maybe if you added more mana sinks to help make use of her? Ant Queen-type effects, or Holistic Wisdom come to mind. (I LOVE Holistic Wisdom). Anything that you can dump all that mana into.
I feel the same way about Mirrorwing Dragon. You only have a few pieces that combo with it. On top of that, you can get the same effect with Zada, Hedron Grinder for less mana. I think it's a cool idea and could lead to some really explosive plays. I would just consider adding a few more pieces that can make use of it. Sublime Epiphany would be a good choice. Same with Heat Shimmer or Stolen Identity.
I think you can cut Darksteel Plate. It doesn't have much synergy with your deck, and it's very situational. Followed Footsteps is also pretty hard to get much value out of. Other than that, I think it's looking really tight, and it'll be hard to make more cuts (aside from maybe Clone Legion.)

NoSoyYucateco Okay this is a better idea of what I'm thinking. If there are any suggestions you mentioned that I didn't address. my apologies. It's been a long week haha. I need to cut 8 cards. That being said, I am concerned about my removal, draw, ramp balance. And if possible, I'd like to try and work in any combination of Woodfall Primus, Brutalizer Exarch, and Avenger of Zendikar. Right now, I have Seedborn Muse in there and wanted to get your opinion on it. My thought was to get multiple uses out of Mimic Vat and Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker in a single turn cycle, but now that I'm thinking about it, that might not be such a good use of a slot. Mirrorwing Dragon is in there, but I might sideboard it. It just seemed like a neat idea to target it with Cackling Counterpart or Twinflame, lol.

Mirrorwing Dragon has been banished to the world of redeemed angels and is replaced by Terror of the Peaks. While making this change, I also decided to swap in Grim Tutor for Vivien's Arkbow. Adding a win condition and another tutor brings more power to the 99 than leaving Mirrorwing Dragon and Vivien's Arkbow in the deck list.

Oh. Yes. That does not work. Thank you for bringing this oversight to my attention. I totally missed that. Hmmm, Mirrorwing Dragon suddenly does not seem as good in this deck. Replacement on the way!

Unfortunately, mechanics like heroic don't actually trigger from Zada's ability because you only copy the spell, not cast it. This means Akroan Crusader won't be able to trigger. The same thing goes for Mirrorwing Dragon, unless you just want it to serve as a second copy of Zada ... Also, depending on the speed at which you want the deck to operate, you might consider adding a little more ramp like Mind Stone or Arcane Signet (though the second might be outside your budget range).

Thanks for the correction on Grapeshot, I don't have any other cards I use with storm so the oracle text confused me. Honest mistake!
In that case I understand and totally agree with your suggestion there. I'm considering maybe cutting one more land to fit in Titan's Strength because I could use an extra pump spell on top of Brute Force. I think I may throw in Double Cleave over Psychotic Fury to get double strike since I can use that on Zada, Hedron Grinder and Mirrorwing Dragon too. The card draw is nice though, and I may sub something else out for out.
I would like to play a few more games before I begin messing around with it anymore other than what I mentioned above. The pandemic has made it a lot more difficult to get together safely though, so it may take me a bit to get back to editing this deck.
Again, thanks for taking the time to comment and correct me on the Grapeshot trigger, I never want to cheat even by accident

Hey, so I've updated the deck a bit to reflect what I have in it right now. After playing with it a bit, I've found that Grapeshot is a game-winner in this deck when I have an engine running with either Zada, Hedron Grinder or Mirrorwing Dragon, so I don't quite want to sub it out just yet. Especially since burn is sometimes the only way for me to get through damage on a friend whose pillow-fort deck has gotten out of control :P. Other than that, I've already subbed out the other cards you mentioned as I realized pretty quickly they don't synergize well.
I don't think I'm going to drop the land count because I've found it crippling to not be able to get out a land each turn in my few games with her. I really like your land suggestions though, and I'll definitely consider getting a copy of each of them going forward to help with mana fixing.
You're right in saying that this deck is definitely lacking some token pump though, and I really like the suggestions of Anax and Cymede and Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin. I remember looking at Anax and Cymede and for some reason I thought you couldn't stack the trigger by casting multiple spells, but I read it correctly when you suggested it.
Aria of Flame is something I'm trying to get my friend to trade me right now, I've realized it's a must-have for a deck like this!
I've also worked on card-draw and scry-cards which really help me dig to the centerpieces of this deck - Zada, Hedron Grinder and Mirrorwing Dragon. I've found that they just make things ten times easier, and ten times faster too!
Some cards that I've added -
Reckless Rage and Fall of the Hammer have been exceedingly useful, especially when combined with Mirrorwing Dragon or Zada, Hedron Grinder, which allows me to aim sometimes upwards of 20, 30, even 40 damage at multiple targets.
Aurelia's Fury which save me from powerful creatures or devastating spells
Ephemerate and Long Road Home for protection. It does remove my tokens if I have Mirrorwing Dragon or Zada, Hedron Grinder, but I've found it's not an issue since I can generally wait for an opponent's end step, cast a bunch of spells, and then have a token army ready to go when it comes back to me.
I should mention that my playgroup doesn't have a deck that's heavy on counter spells, so I'm really wondering how it might fare against something like that. Generally I'm free to pop off so long as I can keep up mana for any removal my friends might have.
Thanks so much for the suggestions though, it really has helped me see what parts of the deck I can fine tune, and what cards I can put in to make that happen!

Once more, I’m not claiming to know more here, but that subtle difference seems to be a downfall in the Ink-Treader Nephilim-Mirrorwing Dragon case, as for one a single Murder is a board wipe for all, but for the other it’s a one-sided one, where the player whose cards are wiped is the active player of the Murder. Seems abusable.
