Rite of Replication and Fated Infatuation are kind of musts in this deck. Maybe even Progenitor Mimic.

Right, but this isn't because a copy effect "copies a creature and all its abilities". It's because a copy effect copies whatever is written on the original card plus the results of any other copy effects. Part of Progenitor Mimic's copy effect adds the token-making ability, so in your example its copiable characteristics are that it's an Acidic Slime with a token-making ability.

I have Progenitor Mimic copy another progenitor who is a copy of Acidic Slime. As I understand it, the second progenitor copying the first will become a slime that will produce 'two' tokens of slime because it copies a creature and all its abilities; which would include the first progenitor's ability which is to produce tokens of its kind.

So progenitor # two makes two tokens, such that if I cast a third progenitor, or bounced the first back to my hand and cast agian, the third progenitor copying the second will make 3 tokens on my upkeep and so on and so forth...

Is this correct? Thnxs

O yes, about the lands: There is no rule regarding the lands, so they work just as they do in real MTG, I just haven't figured out how much of each and I'm gonna put in there, but I'll do it today.

And yes, you made a great point about the whole Progenitor Mimic and fallowed footsteps dilemma. They have almost the exact same effect on the game,and one of them is banned and the other is not. So what should I do? Ban both? Legalize both? Have it so that only 1 can be in a deck?

Well, you banned Progenitor Mimic and this is basically the same thing. And what about the lands??

I'd be willing to do my Temple of Epiphany and Shivan Reef for Consecrated Sphinx Progenitor Mimic and 2x Detention Sphere. What do you think?
