Progenitor Mimic Discussion

Have you considered Momir Vig, Simic Visionary? He's a badass.
This looks like a fun commander deck! +1 :)

Thanks NinjaFist! Those are some great recommendations, quite a few I hadn't thought of yet.
Wonder seems like a great answer to being killed by flyers, and potentially a good way to finish people off as well.
Pathbreaker Ibex is definetly a card I've considered, I'm going to try and fit him and and give him a shot.
Strionic Resonator is a good idea with all the ETB triggers in the deck. Plus if I ever get to copy Avenger of Zendikar with Ezuri out things will certainly get out of hand quickly, Parallel Lives or Doubling Season in combination would net me an entire box worth of tokens.
I had looked at Etched Oracle before and wondered if his counter cost was a bit high, but after playing Ezuri a few times, it would be extremely easy to trigger this. He's going in as well.
As far as "budget" is concerned, I suppose the term is relative. I'm not looking to spend $50 a card on upgrading this thing into an $800+ deck, but I don't mind dropping $20 on a card or two if they are truly worth it. I'm working on trading up to the Doubling Season (running Primal Vigor in its place currently) and Craterhoof Behemoth is most likely a goal eventually as well.
Now for the hard part, deciding what to remove! I have a few obvious things I'd take out, but I'm going to run this deck again next week before I decide what to swap in/out.

Pathbreaker Ibex is an Overwhelming Stampede on a stick and can be used multiple times if it's allowed to stick around unchecked.
He's slowly going down from being shifted out of standard, but I have a feeling that Ezuri would be great friends with the Master of Waves.
While being a little pricey, Momir Vig, Simic Visionary is a great addition to this deck, and can get out of hand very quickly if he is allowed to fetch you a Prophet.
Yavimaya Dryad for the funny look people will give you when you hand them one of your lands :P (also good ramp for yourself if you need it).
Throwing your ETB guys through a Conjurer's Closet is a good way to abuse them when you don't have the Dead-Eye.
A little high on the mana cost, but Verdant Force nets you EXP on your opponent's turns as well.
Archetype of Imagination is a great finisher when you have a game finishing board but too many chump blocks to deal with.
If you ever need to find yourself stopping a board wipe, Fuel for the Cause is a good cheap counter spell that will make your dudes bigger and get EXP.
Strionic Resonator? Dunno how well that'll work, but copying ETB triggers on some of those guys seems pretty good (8 hornets for 9 mana instead of 7? I'd take it).
Wonder if this would be good...
Etched Oracle for some massive card draw.
If you find yourself going up against that horrible G/B precon, Night Soil is a really good counter to grave power decks.
AEther Mutation, gets rid of a blocker and gives a bunch of EXP.
Thada Adel, Acquisitor is great against other blue decks for stealing their sol rings and other pretty things. I've got plenty more suggestions, but I think this comment is already pretty large and wall-of-texty, so I'll leave whatever works for you for now. Just curious, what would be considered "budget"?

I like these decks. Simic wants to grow and grow, and to find every answer to meld into some big slimy amalgamation. And then grow it bigger. Shelf format sounds interesting.
I had a casual multiplayer deck like this that I liked a lot that also included Progenitor Mimic, some Clone, and Simic Manipulator. I was using Negate, Mizzium Skin, and Ranger's Guile to protect them and my beautiful 1/1 counters.
An interesting thing about the evolve mechanic is that in a way it suffers from consistency. As I was gathering full playsets of the evolving creatures I had, the evolve triggers seemed to get less reliable or harder to set up as the diversity of the deck decreased. I never had any Master Biomancer but the Zameck Guildmage helped fill that role (keeping the evolution triggers proccing later in the game) with its first ability.
I was always torn on Bioshift. On the one hand, it was really handy to get 1/1 counters onto the evasive or stompy creatures, off of pacified or dying creatures, or to set up the Renegade Krasis for big triggers. On the other hand, I often felt that I would rather have had a hexproof buff or counterspell, or something that builds more directly.

Are you anti-busted cards? If not, Blade of Selves is a must. Cards it produces value with; Acidic Slime, Avenger of Zendikar, Champion of Lambholt, Coiling Oracle, Craterhoof Behemoth, Eternal Witness, Mulldrifter, Progenitor Mimic (Copying Something), Temur War Shaman, Trygon Predator. And that is just the non-synergy value.

ok why is eternal witness not in here? I thought i added it! wierd. Cyclonic Rift seems good, and Progenitor Mimic. I am actually going to run Zameck Guildmage just never got around to adding them. those lands look pretty good too.

Cool deck! I'm not that good at EDH, but here are some suggestions:
- Cyclonic Rift, Plasm Capture, Voidslime, Eternal Witness, Tooth and Nail, Rite of Replication, Swiftfoot Boots Sensei's Divining Top, Sylvan Library, Progenitor Mimic I'm pretty sure are just some all around good commander cards.
- A cool card that works well with your commander is Experiment Kraj, might be worth testing! Other cool counter cards are Zameck Guildmage to draw a bunch of cards when you need them,
- For lands, Reliquary Tower, Novijen, Heart of Progress, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, and Temple of the False God are all good.
