Progenitor Mimic Discussion

Selvala's Stampede is a recently printed card that works super well in maelstrom decks, especially if you are playing in a standard 4 person commander decks.

Surrak Dragonclaw is also really handy, as he can prevent lots of your creatures from being countered, which is something that sucks with most of your creatures CMC being so high

Probably my favourite card that could be included in a maelstrom wanderer deck is Progenitor Mimic, as it works really well with your decks numerous ETB effects, and most importantly, can make copies of your cascade creatures for extra value.

Pathbreaker Ibex also has a lot of power, especially after being haste enabled, so he deserves some consideration as well

As for helping in putting your expensive cards into play, Oracle of Mul Daya can do a great job of this, and make sure you know when's a good time to cast your maelstrom wanderer by seeing the top card of your library.

If you find you're lacking in card draw, Temur Ascendancy can draw cards as your larger creatures enter the battlefield, and is a great haste enabler

Those are my thoughts for improvements, the deck looks fun and is coming together really well! +1 from me!

Baconmaster52 The really cool thing about this deck is that it was my first edh deck and it was totally a budget deck when I first built it and it was still very competitive. I just over the past 2-3 years have picked up a "money" card every 2-3 months or so. The money cards aren't what the deck is build around. It's built around recursion. And the best recursion cards are cheap. Here is a list of the "money" $20+ cards and their replacements.

Damnation: Life's Finale

Guided drake: Dragonlord Silumgar

Oracle of mul daya: Courser of Kruphix

Sheoldered: Progenitor Mimic

Dark confidant: Phyrexian Arena

Vampiric tutor: Worldly Tutor

Phyrexian tower: High Market

Demonic tutor: Diabolic Tutor

There are some cards that you can't replace though because they have such unique effects. I'd replace the top and rack for more ramp cards or lands because without them your consistency goes down. And I think if you want to do the self made Prophet of Kruphix combo you need to put some money down on seedborn muse. Jace is just amazing and you can replace it with pretty much more card advantage or a win condition of your choice :)

Irreplaceable cards:Seedborn museJace, the mind sculptor Sensi's divining top Scroll rack Volrath's stronghold

Just make the deck your own and put cards that you would like to use. The deck is built how I like to play which is very finesse. You could easily add more powerful ramp/big fatties to end the game faster.

Any questions just let me know

If you want to win by Biovisionary, I suggest focusing on the infinite mana combo of 4x Pili-Pala+Grand Architect, you then need some way to draw all your cards Blue Sun's Zenith for example or Other X type draw spell.

If you can't get your combo going but want to do it the old fashioned way with clone effects: remove Renegade Doppelganger for better clones: Phantasmal Image, Dance of Many, Cytoplasm, Polymorphous Rush, Followed Footsteps, Progenitor Mimic and my favorite Infinite Reflection

I didn't see it mentioned above, so......

Architect of the Untamed with your 4XAttune with Aether.... ???

This deck might be fun after a Cycle and adding in Progenitor Mimic..... LOL

Caller of the Claw Might be useful against zurgo decks and just a neat trick all around, can be extremely abused with Deadeye Navigator to amass an army on someone else's turn if they do something rude.

Winding Canyons might be extremely handy, even though it is more narrow than Alchemist's Refuge it doesn't require colored mana to activate and I have colorless mana for days.

Master of the Wild Hunt is a weird one, certainly prone to copy effects, spot removal aplenty, decent body. Might toy around with if I can get my hands on one. Antlers/10

Panharmonicon is a definite maybe, it wombos and does silly things with Torrential Gearhulk, Rashmi, Eternities Crafter, Progenitor Mimic (copying a creature with an ETB), etc. Just gotta find the space.

Pal00ka Typically, clones are useless with morphs. All you get is a 2/2 creature with no name. Also, while you get ETB effects of creatures with clones, you won't get flip triggers. Progenitor Mimic is in there to steal someone else's thing and keep making copies of it. Now Vesuvan Shapeshifter, on the other hand, works fantastically with morph. It copies the turn face up text on any morph it clones. Repeatable Brine Elemental or Kheru Spellsnatcher at a cost of 1? Yes please! To my knowledge, though, he's the only one that works. Clever Impersonator is probably the second best, because you can hit one of the "morph power 9" with it. 3rd place would be Sakashima the Impostor for its ability to copy Ezuri, Claw of Progress.

Hmm... I may need to cut Progenitor Mimic for Clever Impersonator...

You should try Clever Impersonator and other clone effects like Rite of Replication and Progenitor Mimic. Not because of their synergy with your deck, but because they're fun

Depending on HOW budget this is, try adding Eternal Witness, Greenwarden of Murasa and Birthing Pod. Having a Progenitor Mimic on E-Wit can be brutal, especially when your commander is freakin Riku. I don't think I really need to explain Pod and how it broke modern
