Progenitor Mimic Discussion
2 days ago
CMC clause is definitely a big issue, if it was 2 power, then all the same creatures can still be used, just that you now have a much larger card pool. Think Sower of Temptation, Hornet Queen, Huntmaster of the Fells Flip, Duplicant, Kalonian Hydra, Master Biomancer, Mulldrifter, Prime Speaker Zegana, Progenitor Mimic, Solemn Simulacrum, Windborn Muse ... and many more as I list off a bunch of cards pointlessly. Then you need a minimum of 22 creature cards in the deck for CC to work. It also functions like Dig Through Time for green decks, meaning it helps you search for answers, not aggro. Dropping 2 2/2's or something like that doesn't really get you anywhere against midrange, especially when that advantage is on a 4 drop so that doesn't do you any good against aggro or combo.
Combo is the first thing people are trying with CC, then aggro shells, then hatebear shells. Once someone finds a reliable Collected Melira list, then it might see more competitive play. We'll always see it in aggro shells as that is their new topdeck fuel, and hatebears is going to try and work around CC to see if they can utilize the dig for easier finding of answers to decks.
It's a new card, give it time for it to break in or out.

Right now I am having the trouble of considering if I should keep Progenitor Mimic or not, depending on my ramp package.
I constantly use Body Double to reuse creatures that got countered or died.

I have a Progenitor Mimic, but I have yet to find a spot for it. I feel like all my current 6 drops are more powerful right now. However, that may change over time.
Body Double is another card I've considered, but since this deck does not often put creatures into the graveyard I feel like it would too often be a dead card. However, it's another card that I could easily see making the cut at another time if one of my five drops is underperforming.

What was your reason for those two not making the list?

Lots of strong removal options in these colors. Putrefy and Maelstrom Pulse are really good, and Abrupt Decay can slow down your opponents' game plans pretty severely. More acceleration would also be good. Kodama's Reach and Cultivate are both EDH staples. Also really powerful in EDH is clone effects. Progenitor Mimic is frequently super good. Sheoldred, Whispering One and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger are super rude dudes that can make your opponents really hate life.

I'm just going to throw a lot of stuff at you and hope some sticks.
Echo Mage, Meletis Charlatan, Blightsteel Colossus + Burning Anger, Fork/Reverberate + Isochron Scepter, Hamletback Goliath is a freaking beast, Doubling Season, Parallel Lives, Sarkhan Unbroken (for his +1), Hypersonic Dragon, Progenitor Mimic, Followed Footsteps, Primal Vigor (I actually like this thing a lot).
Riku is also really abusive of Thunderbreak Regent (it's become my mission to convince someone to include this in a deck).
OK, I think I'm done for now. I let someone else touch your mana base (Rainbow Vale FTW!)

OK, you probably know Doubling Season and Primal Vigor, so I suggest Prime Speaker Zegana, Cytoplast Root-Kin, Momir Vig, Simic Visionary, Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, Voidslime, Followed Footsteps, and Progenitor Mimic.
The deck looks really good as a start, though I'd drop a lot of the evolve creatures.
