I like that trade. Someone else may have been interested in my Progenitor Mimic . If you want something else in its place, we could go ahead with the trade. Otherwise, I'll need to talk with them and see how I can work out the details of both trades.

I'm willing to trade Greater Auramancy ($12.07).

I'm very interested in Reflecting Pool , Manabarbs , Mirari , Progenitor Mimic & Aegis Angel ($12.11).

Sound square?

I think Followed Footsteps would be better replaced with Progenitor Mimic . My reasoning is a Path to Exile or Doom Blade can two for one you with an aura, but the mimic is just a trade. Neat concepts, I like decks that can win multiple ways.

Any Clone type card is amazing on a Master Biomancer . The best are Progenitor Mimic , Quicksilver Gargantuan and a new one...Dack's Duplicate .

If you are bouncing creatures you can even the original MB back so you can recast it with more counters from the cloned MB.

Gigantomancer is also a fun card with Animar (costs too much for most other decks but Animar loves colorless mana costs).

@ Midna-Kun I actually have a Woodfall Primus and I have no clue why it hasn't occurred to me to put him in the deck, perhaps I'll place him in the more competitive version, as you stated, he can be quite the monster. I'm not a huge fan of clones, more of a personal preference though Progenitor Mimic is a great card.

@Teal_Fox I've had Grand Abolisher and Trostani, Selesnya's Voice in the deck before and just found them lacking against my playgroup, Trostani gives lots of life and is amazing to have but I tend to be able to mount a fairly solid defence and not need the extra life. Phyrexian Ingester is a great idea, will be keeping my eyes open for him, I might not put him in the deck as I don't currently have much of a need for graveyard hate but never know when the need will arise. I'll also play test Privileged Position but as I run into a lot of global wraths it may or may not stay in the deck, good suggestion though.

Woodfall Primus is /really/ good, as well as Progenitor Mimic . That being said, I get if you don't want to include the primus because he can be a monster to get rid of while just not providing fun for the table.

You should cut them because they are too slow for Modern.

I can tell from your card choices that you like Standard stuff; however, it's just not good enough. Progenitor Mimic costs wayyyy too much. As a comparison, look at the other 6-drop being played in Modern - Wurmcoil Engine . And that's played in Tron which does nothing but accelerate its mana for the first few turns.

The scry lands are also way too slow for Modern. Price
