My Maelstrom Wanderer deck runs a lot of clone effects, most notably Progenitor Mimic. Add in Deadeye Navigator and Riku of Two Reflections...

Also, Progenitor Mimic doesn't target anything. The decision on what to copy is made as Progenitor Mimic enters the battlefield.

First off, rules questions should be asked in the Q&A, which is linked in the header bar. For future reference.

Second of all, Progenitor Mimic will enter as a Chronozoa with 3 time counters on it. At their controller's upkeep, a few things will happen: time counters will be removed, and the Progenitor Mimic will make a token copy of itself (a Chronozoa token with the "if it's not a token, make a token at upkeep" clause). At some point, the last counter will be removed from Progenitor Mimic. When you do, two tokens that are copies of Chronozoa will be put onto the battlefield, because when Mimic died, he was a Chronozoa.

My friend often casts Progenitor Mimic targeting Chronozoa can anyone tell me what exactly would happen in this situation?

Progenitor Mimic will put out a copy of the creature it is copying every upkeep. Those are copies of that creature with the additional text "At the beginning of your upkeep, if this creature isn't a token, put a token onto the battlefield that's a copy of this creature." On turn 3 of your scenario you would have Kalonian Hydra, Progenitor Mimic copying Kalonian Hydra, and two tokens that are copies of Kalonian Hydra with the additional text.

There is no rule that Progenitor Mimic must enter the battlefield as a copy of another Progenitor Mimic, but using a Progenitor Mimic to copy another Progenitor Mimic or its tokens is special because it adds another instance of the additional text, thus producing additional copies.

Sorry for my Grammar

Does Progenitor Mimic that copied Kalonian Hydra will put out tokens every upkeep?

so...Turn 1: (Original Kalonian, and progenitor mimic thats a copy of kalonian

Turn 2: (original Kalonian and progenitor mimic thats a copy of kalonian, and the token thats also a copy)

turn 3 (original Kalonian and progenitor mimic thats a copy of kalonians and 2 TOKENS?

and so on as long as i control Progenitor Mimic?

What happens if i also put another Progenitor Mimic? Can i Choose to copy a different thing, say Elvish Mystic if its on the field?

I read a ruling that the 2nd Progenitor Mimic has to enter as a copy of the 1st one, so in short another Kalonian Hydra

Thanks for responding

Swap out Sultai Banner for Commander's Sphere, and Spitting Image for Progenitor Mimic. Both are stronger cards IMO.

Cellar Door is also a fairly weak card. Maybe try out Mesmeric Orb for the mill instead.

That is a possibility, however, there are a TON of ways to get more counters on my commander that I am not going to run (Doubling Season, Vorel of the Hull Clade, Corpsejack Menace, Primal Vigor, Gilder Bairn, etc.) as that would push my deck in a totally different direction requiring a completely different suite of creatures (a lot of hydras and planeswalkers among other things) to compliment that theme. Instead my commander serves as a alternate "win method" or finisher; I don't always cast him. I am running cards that basically all need an answer or my opponent is going to have a rough time of it, I have a lot of beaters and card draw and tutors. I get what I need when I need it and generate loads of mana. On one of the last games I played I hit a Genesis Wave for X=15! Later I copied the Oona, Queen of the Fae I was playing against and ran X=24 and got 15 Faeries! Look the deck is mostly about being fun (and let me tell you it is!), and when it comes right down to it the list is pretty sturdy. The decision to run Strionic Resonator is to copy all of the massive effects of my creatures, Consecrated Sphinx, Frost Titan, Genesis Hydra, Grave Titan, Indulgent Tormentor, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, Progenitor Mimic, Sepulchral Primordial, Sheoldred, Whispering One, and Vorosh, the Hunter. And to copy a few of my enchantments and artifacts.
