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."

Progenitor Mimic occurrence in decks from the last year
Commander / EDH:
All decks: 0.02%
- Can flickering a card with echo avoid echo?
- Will a Pack Rat token made by a rat brought back by a whip of erebos have haste?
- Can Progenitor Mimic be a land generator?
- Progenitor mimic will become a land if copying an animated land, correct?
- Can I choose to copy Clone by Progenitor Mimic to get infinite cloning?

I am also a big fan of Early Harvest and Summer Bloom with Riku, if you want to lean more heavily on the instants and sorceries. He is so mana hungry, so playing extra lands and getting some extra untaps can make a huge difference.

Check out Riku of Two Reflections. Oldie but a goodie.
Temur/RUG colors? Check.
Cranking out whatever tokens you want? Check.
Double tokens from instants and sorceries? Check.

However, Soulherder's dual use as a general value accumulator and a wincon sets it, imo, as a must-have for any blink deck. Blade of Selves might not be as good as, perhaps, Progenitor Mimic, Helm of the Host, or other cards that don't require you to attack to get copies.

Hello all, I have been playing with the Oko structure deck, that I updated using Affinity For MTG's youtube video, and just bought the Simic Mutology structure deck as well as the Simic Guild Kit, as well as some booster pack cards. I'm trying to combine them into a 75 card deck, with 15 cards I know to take out for 60. Based off the cards in these 3 decks I'd like to build the deck around a constant flow of powerful monsters through the +1/+1 counters, as well as overloading on mana and drawing a lot. Some of the main points of damage right now are Oko who can just turn everything into a base 10/10 and distribute lots of +1/+1s, vorel who can double somethings counters, zegana who gives trample, galloping lizrog which can take all the +1/+1s and double them onto himself, nylea's forerunner for trample, progenitors mimic and miming slime to make clones, and wild born preserver for reach and his +1/+1s. But I also have things like coiling oracle/fathom mage to draw a lot, and gyre sage/maraleaf pixie for tons of mana. So I'd like to just find a good strategy in this mess lol.
The total card list of everything I will have is: (stuff with "x" seems important to me) Creatures: 1 Oko, the Tricksterx, 1 Vorel of the Hull Cladex, 1 Zegana, Utopian Speakerx, 1 Momir Vig, Simic Visionaryx, 2 Cloudfin Raptor, 4 Coiling Oraclex, 1 Cytoplast Root-Kin, 1 Elusive Krasis, 4 Faerie Vandalx, 1 Fathom Magex, 1 Frilled Mysticx, 1 Galloping Lizrogx, 1 Gyre Sagex, 4 Keeper of Fablesx, 3 Maraleaf Pixiex, 1 Nimbus Swimmer, 1 Nylea's Forerunnerx, 3 Paradise Druid, 2 Plaxmantax, 1 Progenitor Mimicx, 1 Protean Hulkx, 3 Spectral Sailorx, 4 Sphinx of Foresight, 2 Surveilling Sprite, 1 Trygon Predator, 2 Vigean Graftmage, 3 Vigean Hydropon, 1 Wildborn Preserverx, 2 Zameck Guildmagex,
Instants: 1 Applied Biomancyx, 1 Disdainful Strokex, 1 Gift of Strengthx, 2 Oko's Hospitalityx, 3 Optx, 1 Prying Eyes, 1 Quenchx, 1 Radical Ideax, 2 Rapid Hybridization, 1 Return of the Wildspeakerx, 1 Voidslime,
Artifacts: 2 Simic Signet,

On that note, Progenitor Mimic slots nicely into a similar place in this deck.

I like the theme of the deck. I too am a fan of copy cat and +1/+1 counter strategies. I haven't leaned into the proliferate mechanic much, but I noticed that you don't have Inexorable Tide in there...seems like a major upgrade for the deck.
Also, another copy cat creature that I love using is Progenitor Mimic. It can be a bit slow, but if your meta doesn't include a ton of removal, a few turns with him out can be devastating.

Progenitor Mimic seemed pretty slow for the list, and giving more ways that I can put Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath in my hand in response to his effect is better than a copy of creatures each turn. It was replaced by two cards (spiritually, even though I know you can only replace one with one.)
Thanks NV_1980! I really appreciate your suggestions.
Also, SylonThalen, I love the idea! I just don't dip my toes into cEDH or cEDH-like decks. I had to reel it back a bit so I'm not the guy with the biggest threats in my group. Still a great take on the commander though!
