Progenitor Mimic

Creature — Shapeshifter

You may have Progenitor Mimic enter the battlefield as a copy of any creature on the battlefield except it gains "At the beginning of your upkeep, if this creature isn't a token, create a token that's a copy of this creature."

Enker on Wurm EDH ideas?

5 days ago

Riku of Two Reflections with green ramp and play almost all good wurms, with blue create copies and protect, witn red give haste and create copies with riku and other enchantment. Rhythm of the Wild such a nicve card for the deck. Progenitor Mimic , Bramble Sovereign , Cackling Counterpart and Flameshadow Conjuring are some ideas.

I'm glad you like the list!

To improve the deck I would definitely change the manabase so lands don't come into play tapped. This means cutting all the tri-lands/scry lands and adding fetches and shocks (or duals).

Cards I'm thinking about cutting:

Cards to add (or try):

I'm hesitant to add combos because I normally don't have issues closing out games once I'm drawing a lot of cards, it's simply a matter of not losing first. The new Niv-Mizzet might be fun for the extra card draw though.

I am currently reconstructing my Momir deck around only one combo. First get Master Biomancer out. Copy him with Altered Ego. Then play Sage of Hours out and go infinite in turns.

This can be done by copying the Sage with Progenitor Mimic or offcourse Deadeye Navigator letting the Sage re-enter the battlefield.

I can go infinite around turn 5. Still busy fine tuning the deck. When that is done I'll post it on tapped out so you might take a peek when it is finished.

Fun deck. I've always liked Taty, but I've never built a deck around her.

A couple of staples I'd recommend you get your hands on ASAP for any deck are Eternal Witness (creature based recursion = good!), Sol Ring (Best ramp), Swiftfoot Boots and/or Lightning Greaves (protect your things), and perhaps Darksteel Plate. To quickly round out your bouncelands, also look for Simic Growth Chamber and Jungle Basin.

One thing to always keep an eye on in EDH is wincons. You have a couple goodies, but you could be running one or two more top-end cards to exploit your land count. If you're being more casual, I always recommend Progenitor Mimic because it's so fun. Rude Awakening is another way to make your lands work for you, Sylvan Advocate is a reasonable body and can buff your creature-lands. If you can get coin for it, Nissa, Worldwaker and Nissa, Steward of Elements are also both good 'walkers for both value and ramp, as is Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip.

Welcome to EDH! It's a blast of a format. Have fun brewing!

I love blinking creatures, however if you try to include that package in this deck, you will be diluting your +1/+1 counter matters theme. Your sub theme right now is the infect/phyrexia and if you want to add in the flicker package you would have to cut that out, which means your taking out the heart of the reason why you built the deck.

Progenitor Mimic is awesome, but your curve is a bit on the high side so I would recommend against it. The better option imo if you still want to add in flicker would be these two. Eldrazi Displacer or Deadeye Navigator. Venser, the Sojourner actually works with the theme because he can either blink, make unblockable, and ult will close out the game so all relevant abilities.

Hope that gives some insight!

hkhssweiss yo dude!

I'm wondering about some blink effect like:

Conjurer's Closet,

Roon of the Hidden Realm,

Venser, the Sojourner

They can also work well with Restoration Angel or good 'ol Flickerwisp) - giving us additional trigger (but this angel will do nothing more so maybe not a great idea).

Can be great with Eternal Witness, Deepglow Skate (lel), Kalonian Hydra (if I will use its counters for something else) or even with Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Ezuri, Claw of Progress (additional exp counters - always welcome), or....Soul Warden. If Master Biomancer will join the party in late game - we can blink stuff that was put on the battlefield earlier. I was also considering Progenitor Mimic long time ago, but I find it too expensive. Seems good? Whatcha think?

Enduring Scalelord and Progenitor Mimic are really fun in this deck.

Awesome! Thanks a lot bro! I don't know why WOG was still in, thought I had removed The Disenchant is for my buddy that I playtest with. He always puts some stupid enchantment on my commander that makes them useless, so yeah, disenchant. The Boros Charm I just thought would be nice if I had some artifacts or mana dorks out at wrath time that I wanted to save.

Other than that, I scrounged up a Progenitor Mimic and a Stolen Identity. I will keep my eyes out for the rest of the stuff you suggested, I'll have to use whats I gots for now though. I appreciate the help buddy, thanks!

Side note, do you now much about how to best use Kruphix, God of Horizons mana storing ability? Can I just tap any unused lands I have each turn and store the mana on him with a dice, than use it any time I want? Cause that would be awesome.
