Progenitor Mimic Discussion

This is a good deck, and I like it, but there's an entire color you have available that you could be using, and it's the one that can copy Relentless Rats!

I would swap out some of the rat cards for blue cards that will be better than one Relentless Rat if you pull them off -- like Clone Legion, Gigantoplasm, or Progenitor Mimic.

Like I said, though... nice decklist otherwise

Thanks for the tip. I do think the more colours in a deck the more mana required, but in this deck a Forest can be removed. To me, Bring to Light will be more useful than Progenitor Mimic since Reaper King is commonly killed as an artifact. I will still add Progenitor Mimic to the Maybeboard.

Dryad Arbor, Zoetic Cavern, Khalni Garden are lands that can trigger ezuri.

Managorger Hydra, Tuskguard Captain, and Phantom Nantuko are great creatures.

Hooded Hydra, Hangarback Walker, and Chasm Skulker are must-haves.

Oran-Rief, the Vastwood give counters

Other good cards: Burnished Hart, Gyre Sage, Hornet Queen, Inspiring Call, Progenitor Mimic, Eldritch Evolution, Green Sun's Zenith, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Verdant Confluence, Rishkar's Expertise, Asceticism and more.

For planeswalkers i would suggest Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury and Nissa, Voice of Zendikar

Another thing to note is that proliferate works on experience counters so that means: Viral Drake, Tezzeret's Gambit, Thrummingbird, Skyship Plunderer(he's basically a single target proliferate)

not sure which card I would replace Progenitor Mimic with as all cards seem effective enough to remain in the 99. If you think of anything let me know. Thanks for your suggestion.

Looks like a fun deck! I'm guessing you aren't running Doubling Season due to the cost? You could add Progenitor Mimic to make new Thrummingbirds or Grave Titans for their ETB effects.

Gidgetimer on Does Aether Meltdown shut down ...

Yeah. In case you are better with lists, what it is saying is that a copy of a permanent

Will copy:

  • The printed characteristics of the card (power and toughness, name, mana cost, abilities, etc.)

  • ETB and Flip abilities that set one or more of the above

  • Any changes made by previous copy effects (such as those made by Dack's Duplicate, Evil Twin, Gigantoplasm, Progenitor Mimic, etc.)

  • Face down status (copying a morph gives you a colorless 2/2 with no name, not whatever is on the front of the card.)

Will NOT copy:

  • Changes made by auras

  • Counters

  • Any continuous effects

  • Status (tapped/untapped, phased in/out etc.)

So if you copy a Felidar Cub with Aerial Modification on it you get a 1/4 without flying, If you copy a Felidar Cub with counters on it you get one with no counters, if you copy a tapped Felidar Cub you get an untapped one, if you copy a Felidar Cub with Aether Meltdown on it gives you a 1/4.

nice deck!

if you are going for the copying route, you may want to splash in green and add Progenitor Mimic, taking out some of the Mind Controls maybe. just a suggestion.

+1 for sure!
