Progenitor Mimic Discussion

NotSquishedYet on Free Will's End (Acquire List)

Made some changes... I think I've officially dropped all of my powerhouse wincons.

Who needs wincons... when you can use other peoples' wincons? :D

Ith, High Arcanist is a funny dude. Showed up and said nothing would happen. With Illusionist's Bracers and Crawlspace down, preferably including Arcane Lighthouse and/or Glaring Spotlight to deal with pesky creatures... well, surprisingly enough, nothing ever did happen.

Welcome Kaseto, Orochi Archmage for his political prowess and control over situations I'm not involved in. Also welcome Thada Adel, Acquisitor for when she needs called in against pesky decks.

Kaseto's good friend, Edric, Spymaster of Trest is on the block, asking if I'm really the one you want to attack here. Edric, now, brought the whole gang of Ephara, God of the Polis, Mentor of the Meek, and Selvala, Explorer Returned to a Rhystic Study of sorts, and he's thinking of bringing Reki, the History of Kamigawa to help out.

We found some dude in Nephalia who seemed to like messing with reality, so we put Nephalia Smuggler to work with Progenitor Mimic copying copies of itself copying copied other things until it could copy entire armies at once. Neat. People also seem to forget who they're allied with after a short trip through the interplanar Aether. Clever Impersonator wanted to join the fun, so an Angelic Shield was set up. Now the Progenitor's started copying entire armies of copiers, too. Because I really need 35 of everyone's nonlegendary everything.

Vesuvan Shapeshifter got in while everyone was drunk, and we let him stay for the card tricks. Strange guy, but you'll never hear a better knock-knock joke than when your Progenitus meets itself across the field and has a mid-life crisis because they can't touch each other.

I'm still considering many of the suggestions piled up under the deck - I haven't had much time to think beyond this, which I know I'd like to do. For the play-style of the deck, it might be noted that I rarely want to draw cards... the card draw is just a convenient bonus on occasion and a way of getting what I need to get what I actually want from my deck. The slow, high mana cost cards will almost always be cheated into play. If not, I'll tutor some stupid combo to somehow get them out of my hand.

Remember, I can do things like turn Muddle the Mixture into Eladamri's Call to tutor Drift of Phantasms and turn it into Wargate to land whatever I need, such as Eternal Witness to recur Wargate and grab a Sun Titan, kill the Eternal Witness, Wargate Birthing Pod, and Birthing Pod whatever to cheat Reya Dawnbringer into play, all using random spare mana between turns and one or two turns of mana for a solid advantage.

Sparkii on Horde of Notions - Elemental Tribal EDH

Sorry for getting back to you late.

Illusionist's Bracers and Rings of Brighthearth seem like great ways to abuse his ability and if played early it can power you throught the mid game. But from my experience with the deck it tends to ramp pretty hard so if I want to activate Horde multiple times I can just pay for it no problem.

One card I have began to consider is Progenitor Mimic. My buddy was able to Mimic a Magmatic Force and it demanded the immediate attention from the table or it was going to spiral out of control. I think it could have similar benefits for me if I am able to copy one of my larger elementals. He is also a valid target for my elemental tutors making him better than Rite of Replication.

Amusingly, I just realized that the wording of Clever Impersonator and Progenitor Mimic allow me to copy a Progenitus if I really have to.

Hello and welcome, Daedalus19876, to my humble abode of.... well, actually, broken overpoweredness and ridiculous shenanigans!

The combo mentioned above, though I removed Avacyn for cost/effectiveness reasons, is one of those "You can't play the game" things.

I added onto it with Soulsworn Jury copied by Progenitor Mimic to go alongside Glen Elendra Archmage and Melira, Sylvok Outcast as counter engines to support Guile and also conveniently stop anyone from playing spells.

Empyrial Archangel and Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant say "I and creatures I control can't take damage." Starfield of Nyx makes Sterling Grove a creature, letting Asceticism protect it, which protects Asceticism, Rune-Tail's Essence, Starfield of Nyx, and one other enchantment. Most of it is unnecessary, but I like that it can complete a loop of untouchable protection.

It's a really fun deck Okking86. Progenitor Mimic is my MVP for this deck. Though I will guess that the enjoyment factor highly depends on the decks your playgroup have. I'm lucky that my playgroup favors midrange aggro decks with little counterspells. It gives me enough time to have a fighting chance to play this brew.

Should this not be the case for you, I highly suggest improving the ramp for this deck. There's also the thing in my Current Thoughts Section where I've been thinking of upping Progenitor Mimic and Primeval Titan while adding more ramp.

AND OF COURSE, I am in no way convincing you that this is a solid deck. This build is literally laughable (either I laugh or my opponents do). If you have the budget, it will be a compliment to me that you build and improve this deck.

Progenitor Mimic will work like Altered Ego minus the "cannot be countered" which I can make up for if necessary. Lumbering Falls is a +1 though; so thanks for that man, TheDrunkPlaneswalker.

Wurmcalling or Gelatinous Genesis can give you X/X tokens (and you can keep casting Wurmcalling).

You could also use Heroes' Bane, a potentially colossal creature, for you to dump all your mana into. Primordial Hydra is a favourite of mine, but you can only spend your mana on it once.

Alternatively, if you for some reason dislike conventional damage as a wincon (maybe your local playgroup have a lot of creature hate), then Helix Pinnacle only costs 100 to win the game.

Biovisionary Also comboes great with your Progenitor Mimic

I found these in roughly 10 minutes, so I could probably find some more, but I think you get the idea..
