I know it's got a high mana cost, but Progenitor Mimic Might be a good way to get your Biovisionary out faster

I agree with gundambatman, and I also think that another way to get lots of tokens is by putting in Thrun, the Last Troll , and also putting in a popular card in commander called Rite of Replication . I also suggest putting in Mirror Gallery , so the mechanics with some cards such as Rite of Replication and Progenitor Mimic aren't fizzled by the "Legend Rule".

Hey guys! Sorry for very long inactivity. Today I was literally keyboardzerking to finish this challenge, but thanks to Murphy's Laws my PC (and already made write-ups) is broken. And to accomplish that bad luck, thanks to the renovation made in my "skyscraper", I'm not going to have internet in 1-2 weeks. After a talk with my friend, I've decided to give other matches short descriptions of matches I made on PC and make a full write-up of the final, finishing this challenge. Hope you enjoy it!

brokendwarf's I've got recursion out the ass VS MisterRoach Blood Tithe for Power

GAME 1: While at Turn 5 Recursion had no board presence, Tithe had Phyrexian Obliterator and animated Erebos, who quickly dropped Recursion's health to 0.

GAME 2: Tithe got great luck, resulting in T4 Crypt Ghast , T5 Nirkana Revenant , resulting in 19/19 Vampire going through Recursions defenses.

Blood Tithe won 2-0

rkreutz's Race to the top, evolution style VS rkreutz's Boros Legion, Attack!

GAME 1: T5: Murkfiend Liege and T6 Progenitor Mimic quickly oppressed Boros, who had very slow start, hitting third land at Turn 5.

GAME 2: While Boros took the threats on board fast, Race did the same, stalling the game. About 15th turn, Boros somehow managed the Aggravated Assault + Sword of Feast and Famine combo, finally killing Race.

GAME 3: Again, gmae was pretty stalled, but Race managed to dig the Invert the Skies , swinging for lethal.

Race won 2-1

Boza's Karametra, Primal Genesis VS Boza's Forge Victory in God Challenge

GAME 1: Karametra dropped T7 (maybe T8) Primal Surge , putting 60% of his library into the game, while Purphoros was low on fuel for his damage machine.

GAME 2: While Karametra was desperately draw the win-con, Forge slowly drained her health, finally leading to her Death.

GAME 3: Like in Game 1, Purphoros didn't draw enough fuel for his death machine, finally leading him to doom by meeting Craterhoof Behemoth .

Karametra won 2-1

Dekord's Death by Lightning Bolt VS Rayenous's Heliod's Last Man Standing

GAME 1: While Last Man's wrath effects did nothing to Bolt, Bolt's counterspells were very effective versus his other cards, stalling the game until Keranos didn't kill Last Man.

GAME 2: The game was stalled again, but rather than be killed by Keranos, Last Man was killed by AEtherling and Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre thanks to Jace, Architect of Thought .

Bolt wins 2-0

+1, Treefolk are awesome. How about the new one, Kalonian Twingrove ? That'd be a sweet target for Progenitor Mimic

weisemanjohn I've done that before in a different simic dck before and it's just a little stupidly funny. Although I would rather have Prime Speaker Zegana over Progenitor Mimic because of the ability to draw oh so many cards.

Kiora found a hydra

I would add Sage of Hours . If you put 3 +1/+1 counters on Master Biomancer and then copy the Sage of Hours with the Progenitor Mimic , you get infinite turns in a row. Synergy? +1
