Progenitor Mimic Discussion

Perpetual on Help with Allies

1 week ago

Looks like we are going different directions with Tazri. My deck is still a work in progress, but it is 22 "Ally" cards (20 allies, Progenitor Mimic, and Xenograft, 21 "Planeswalker" cards (19 PW's, Oath of Gideon, and The Chain Veil), 33 lands, 8 ramp cards, 7 card drawing cards, 4 Proliferate cards, and 4 removal cards. My only real bounce comes from Venser, the Sojourner.

So far my deck has overperformed for me, I need to play it more to see how much of my winning is just luck.

A great card for a Biovisionary deck would be Defense of the Heart. Getting half of your win condition out from one card that you can have 4 of is good, getting a fourth of your win condition and a card that will get the rest (Progenitor Mimic) is even better.

I have a buddy that runs a sliver EDH deck as well he took a less tribal route, but we mutually discovered that Progenitor Mimic can stack with a bunch of his abilities which is just dumb and that Thorncaster Sliver is slightly more busted then many people thought

from the gatherer on Progenitor Mimic:

"Any enters-the-battlefield abilities of the copied creature will trigger when Progenitor Mimic enters the battlefield. Any as [this creature] enters the battlefield or [this creature] enters the battlefield with abilities of the chosen creature will also work."

So it will enter as the slime, but with the added ability of a copy each of your upkeeps.

The most interesting play I seen was somebody playing mimic with an anthem in play and not copying anything. then casing clone copying mimic, which copied the mimic with the added ability. So each turn he got a mimic token that he could make into any other creature.

Copy effects stack in the way you think they would, for the most part. In this case you would get a copy of Progenitor Mimic that is copying Acidic Slime, meaning you'd get a fresh new Slime on each turn.

Lets say I have an Acidic Slime on the field as well as a Progenitor Mimic in the yard. I play Body Double and have it enter as a copy of the mimic. Would it entering as the mimic let me copy acidic slime and get a new acidic slime copy on each of my upkeeps or would it die as a state based effect from copying a 0/0 in the yard?
