You wouldn't be able to use Progenitor Mimic the Clever Impersonator because the Impersonator is no longer a creature when it copies Doubling Season.

So let's say I have Clever Impersonator and I cast it take Doubling Season because planes walkers with 2x counters = wat now, but if I Progenitor Mimic the impersonator, does he just become the 0/0 guy or does he get his effect through?

Each "clone" effect on the Master Biomancer doubles the counters he gives +2... If you don't want a lot of clone-type cards just a Progenitor Mimic or Quicksilver Gargantuan can really make a huge difference.

Strength of the Tajuru can make a ton of counters on lots of creatures (i see it in your maybeboard there, the fact that its an instant makes it a game ender in many cases).

Contagion Engine can proliferate your counters and it can board wipe an opponent with -1/-1's

@SalamanderMan Nobody in my meta runs Torpor Orb, although Hushwing Gryff can sometimes be an issue. However, I have enough ways to deal with creatures (including Roon himself) that I can still usually get around it. I've thought about adding Krosan Grip to deal with Torpor Orb, but I just haven't needed to yet.

@Indigoindigo Diluvian Primordial seems great if your meta is heavy on big, splashy instants and sorceries. Mine is not, so it's not worth playing. Chancellor of the Spires is the same way for me (although I do actually like it better) because I just have no real targets - everyone is heavy on either creatures or artifacts, not spells.
Progenitor Mimic is a solid card, but I'm not running him because I really have nothing right now that I feel I can cut without making the deck worse rather than better.

Have you ever tried Diluvian Primordial? It's expensive, but might be really good. I'm considering Progenitor Mimic in my build as well, and I'm curious about your opinions on the cards.

They are mostly out of the deck for the same reason Nomads' Assembly is on the Maybe list: they tend to be very expensive for the number of tokens generated, and I prefer reusable sources.

Self-sustaining or cheap variants like Mycoloth, Flurry of Wings, Mirror-Sigil Sergeant or Progenitor Mimic are top of my list for ROI, and things like Twilight Drover, Jade Mage and Rhys the Redeemed fill the "I have too much Mana and want to throw it at things" spot.

I've decided to cut down on tutors and countermagic, but your other suggestions I've wanted to try out for some time. I really like the Sower as a good 75% card, it scales well to the power level of the table, but Fiend Hunter might not be good enough. How about these changes:

Conjurer's Closet -> Progenitor Mimic. Quite similar effect, but more shenanigan-potential. Fixes my curve a bit too.
Fiend Hunter -> Diluvian Primordial. I might find some good removal in the graveyard, and the Primordial is a good 75% spell as well.
