Progenitor Mimic Discussion

Araganor on Opinions on Intet

Stubborn Denial is great, I would keep it in.

You can cut Clone. You already have a lot of these effects in Dack's Duplicate, Progenitor Mimic, and Clever Impersonator, and Clone is the worst of the lot.

Rite of Replication is fun but underwhelming to flip off of Intet so you may consider cutting it.

Other possible cuts: Warstorm Surge, Quicken, Stalking Vengeance, or shave a counter (probably Negate)

verdant confluence is a card I would not cut. I would gladly pay 6 mana to return 3 permanents from my graveyard to my hand.

simic manipulator - is good creature control, as the effect doesn't have a duration clause.

skullwinder - is good political card for multiplayer.

mystic snake - is a counterspell on a stick that gives you an experience counter if your commander out.

the other cards in your may remove board are either cards that can easily be removed or are dependent on who you are playing against.

Some cards to consider adding that won't break the bank are:

Blighted Agent - a quick kill, but frowned upon by many (i see it in your maybe board already)

Chasm Skulker and Hooded Hydra as when they die you get lots of small creatures and possible experience counters.

Master Biomancer - cause you just keep beefing him up and all your small creatures enter really big.

Progenitor Mimic - cause coping the best non legendary creature each turn is always good. gets stupid when copying Master Biomancer as the effect stacks.

Beast Within - one of the best green removal spells.

Triumph of the Hordes - can instantly win the game, but frowned upon by some.

Rite of Replication - getting multiples of the best non legendary creature is good (right?)

Curse of the Swine - helps to nulify your other commanders ability.

Contagion Engine - works on all counters, permanents and you/oppponent.

Skullclamp - cause drawing cards is good...would be better if you had more sac outlets or more 1/1s.

Fable of Wolf and Owl - is a good card that is overlooked sometimes.

Asceticism - goes into any creature based deck with green

Bred for the Hunt - card draw is good.

Song of the Dryads - another top green removal spell, can be used to slow down or stop some commanders.

Wild Beastmaster -cause making all creatures bigger is great

Also you can use to see what other people are playing in the deck. It is not always the most competitive cards, but a great place to start. I am currently building my version of this commander, but will be using a elf theme and a couple of combos.

you could also throw in a Clone Legion as a coup de grace targeting yourself or perhaps a Progenitor Mimic to copy one the lord effect slivers for stacking bonuses galore.

No. The process of choosing what it comes in as happens before it actually enters the battlefield. The creature to copy must already be on the battlefield to be a legal choice.

Also, please link all cards in your question.

Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, Brago, King Eternal, Thragtusk, Progenitor Mimic.

Rhadamanthus on Question about Brago trigger with ...

You can use double square brackets to link cards. It's the easiest way to make sure everyone reading your question understands what's going on: Brago, King Eternal, Thragtusk, Progenitor Mimic.

You have to leave Thragtusk on the battlefield if you want to copy it with Progenitor Mimic in this way.

It's true that "enters the battlefield" triggers can "see" other objects entering at the same time, but that's not what's going on here. The copy ability on the Mimic (and other similar cards) is a replacement effect that modifies how the Mimic enters the battlefield. The game has to process it before the Mimic actually gets to the battlefield, which means you can only choose something that's already on the battlefield before the Mimic enters.

Aneximines on Every Time We Wander Cascada

I use the Ingester in my Animar deck, so I rarely have to spend seven mana on it, but I use the same bounce-my-own-creatures and Deadeye Navigator tricks, with which the Ingester is pretty mean.

Making cuts is always difficult. Time Stretch seems a little out of place, since you can't cascade or Surge into it. I have a feeling you may actually have too many mana ramp cards; maybe Farseek is a little low-impact?

As for the toys, definitely keep Balefire Dragon and Avenger of Zendikar. For cuts, Scourge of the Throne seems a little iffy, and I've found Progenitor Mimic a bit unreliable, tempting as its great potential is.

Here's way too long of a list of suggestions now that I know you're interested in Changeling Scarecrows.

If you have any more questions, I should have eaten my supper by then. Best of luck!
