I think Simic Charm is better than Asceticism due to versatility, and Progenitor Mimic is too expensive.I'll look into Mirrorweave.

Asceticism to protect da combo? Progenitor Mimic? I think you haven't enough cards to make biovisionaries. Maybe some defenders + Mirrorweave?

So I don't build control decks often. What sort of ratios would you recommend?

I separated card draw into "engines" (like Consecrated Sphinx), tutors, and cheap draw (one-mana diggers like Brainstorm). Which should I have the most of and which the least? Tutors obviously if I needed combos, but what about in general?

Also separated the removal/disruption into removal of creatures, noncreature permanents, counterspells, and then board wipes and pillow fort (Propaganda and Dissipation Field). Should I focus mainly on counterspells or share the love with other removal spells?

As far as other combos for control, I got a Deadeye Navigator that can combo with anything, notably Chittering Rats and Pentavus. He and Erratic Portal can use Archaeomancer and Mnemonic Wall with Recollect and Mindslaver. These aren't as strong as infinite turns but they do shut down at least one person. Also have Progenitor Mimic, Infinite Reflections, and Rite of Replication for ETB effects or just really good creatures. Then there's the simple Spell Crumple + Tunnel Vision combo.

If anyone can think of other simple combos to add lemme know.

I know I'm asking a lot of questions but I only ever have derpy theme decks :P

I was playing my bant life gain deck back in INN/RTR standard against Naya blitz, I ended that game at 52 life after going to 4.

At one point I got out an Angel of Serenity and copied it with Progenitor Mimic with a Trostani, Selesnya's Voice.

Feels good man.

Before I respond to the request to put Progenitor Mimic in my deck, should it be banned?

Have you thought about the power of Progenitor Mimic though?

The triggered ability will put a copy of your opponents general into play. Since you blink the Progenitor Mimic in response to the triggered ability going on stack, it leaves and comes back before the triggered ability resolves, allowing you to copy another creature and not having to worry about the legend rule.
