Progenitor Mimic Discussion

Ok this is a strange deck. it s really political and difficult to be play.The strategy of the deck is to put pieces which slows my opponents and build with the enchantment a wall of protection on myself, after that I Have all time for defeat my opponents in different way playing creatures like Gisela, Blade of Goldnight for example or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite too. In other case I could steal or copy my opponents resources with Bribery or cards like Progenitor Mimictoo. Rhonas the Indomitable is very dangerous with the number of mana I could have in this deck and sometimes with my General I Could win by Voltron.Starfield of Nyx the main reason which I play that card is to "Reanimate" my enchantments over and over again and with Defense of the Heart it makes funny tricks.I had to think on the change of Lotus the only reasons which I haven't change it yet it s because when you do Lotus I don t go tappedout but I know Geoscope fixing better the mana then Lotus.

Despite its susceptibility to being removed, I really think Phantasmal Image would be very useful in this deck. Also, Phyrexian Metamorph can be good as well as Progenitor Mimic

The card doubles tokens and counters, and your first sentence explaining the deck said, "Play Rite of Replication or Progenitor Mimic on a Corpsejack Menace to make exponentially stupid counter growth. I've also had fun making tokens of Engulfing Slagwurm and my dudes that assign damage as though they weren't blocked. Szadek, Lord of Secrets gets crazy with this +1/+1 counter build".

Which made me under the impression doubling those counters would be beneficial. The card also works with your commander since when he is cast from the command zone it is in fact counters that are put on him, so if you had a Death's Shadow and a Glistener Elf in your graveyard for The Mimeoplasm, and had Doubling Season on the board, that's a 26/26 with infect you could make.

Parallel Lives will essentially do the same on a budget, at least for the tokens. Vigor is fun too.

So the primary concern I see here, is that if it's taking 8 turns to get win conditions on the table, imagine if you get slowed by 3-4 turns. Can you keep up?

I would drop the chronomaton's, the myr's, and the memnite's for draw effects, and flying walls.

Mirrorweave is a much better win condition, with a bunch of walls and Bazaar Trader + Harmless Offering. Alternatively, you have Splinter Twin and Progenitor Mimic available. With a card like Chandra's Spitfire, donating a bombshell could be 11 damage instead of 7.

As far as copying stuff goes, you could try Saheeli's Artistry or Progenitor Mimic since they don't make you sac your creature

Clone, Progenitor Mimic, Followed Footsteps, Vesuvan Shapeshifter, Clever Impersonator, Vizier of Many Faces, and all the other clone effects: WE WILL HAVE ALL THE STORM CROWS.

Vesuva: Because why play basic islands when you can pay $13 for a card that copies one?
