Progenitor Mimic Discussion

Thanks, I have to eliminate redundant cards. I would put some clones like Clever Impersonator and Progenitor Mimic. With Progenitor Mimic and Dominus of Fealty I can take a lot of creatures, or with or creatures whose skills are activated when they come into play, I can do a lot of effects.

For the cascade ability are a little skeptical. Mana creatures are better because of the artifacts in the extreme case can be pumped. As I have time I change. Thanks for the advice, because I had not thought too much redundancy when I wrote the first list, but seeing the space it occupies, that I can only give a reason

Also, flickering Progenitor Mimic and having it copy one of its tokens, makes it have another trigger. Basically, if you let it spawn on token, flicker and copy that one. On your next upkeep, the original will spawn two tokens that both say "At the beginning of your upkeep, if this creature isn't a token, put a copy of this creature onto the battlefield." twice over. If you flicker again and copy one of those, the original will have that triggered ability on it three times over. Thus, exponential returns. Have it be a clone of Sublime Archangel for extra fun times.

Also, Beguiler of Wills, Thalakos Deceiver, Progenitor Mimic, Rite of Replication?

Corrupted Conscience instead of Mind Control

Twincast instead of Willbender, or maybe

Rewind, just.. no. 4 lands is too much to hold onto. Use Counterspell instead, or maybe Voidslime.

Mimic Vat is also good for some exile, and ETB abuse.

Your deck has an insane amount of cards giving you trample and flying. You already have a commander that provides trample for everyone, so I would cut on that end: Primal Rage, Archetype of Aggression, Brawn. The other trample providers have another bonus attached, so they are fine. Also what you are trying to do, should not require you to have flying in the first place, since those creatures blocking you are on your side through mysterious circumstances. Cards I would cut: Archetype of Imagination, Wonder

To compensate for those cuts, I would get more haste for your stuff: Ogre Battledriver or In the Web of War, Maelstrom Wanderer, Bloodbraid Elf (because it is just damn good). Also while you are stealing creatures you might as well copy them before you sacrifice them: Clever Impersonator (can also copy any nonland permanent), Progenitor Mimic (adds a new copy every turn).

Also I am not a fan of creature based ramp. One board wipe and they are gone and your mana with them. In EDH that is not an unlikely scenario. I prefer the signets (Izzet Signet, Gruul Signet, Simic Signet) and Thran Dynamo as well as Gilded Lotus. Artifact removal is a thing in EDH, too, though. But at least your opponent needs to spend an extra card or two to remove them independently from the boardwipe.

Lastly: While you are going for control of your opponent's creatures, why not keep them? Control Magic, Mind Control can do wonders, when there is an Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre or Kozilek, Butcher of Truth on the other side. And you probably have some kind of haste provider in the field, making them ready to annihilate your opponent.

Hope that helps!

I would replace Stormsurge Kraken with Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir for the flashing also Leyline of Anticipation is great if you get it in your opening hand but also really good afterwards for flashing in almost everything. Also another card you may want to add could be Primal Surge as it is an amazing finisher. Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir is a bit pricey at $20 but Primal Surge only costs $1 so not too expensive. Also Temporal Mastery is nice and Master Biomancer can really help your creatures and if you can pull it off, can be huge +1/+1 counter generation with Progenitor Mimic.

nothing say's sack like Hell's Caretaker also Foster and Praetor's Grasp look like they could be fun in here, also with your sack effects you could probably abuse Thragtusk. Vengevine will keep coming back. Maelstrom Pulse is at worst a kill spell, at best destroys all of an opponents creatures for those who like to spam a specific token or people who like to clone or copy their own things (e.g. Progenitor Mimic)

Okay. people say that Lavinia of the Tenth isn't good enough, but in my opinion, neither is Thragtusk. So what about something different. I did some quick searching for a good finisher and here's what I came up with. Basically, they had to be good against Abzan:

These are the best ones. I looked at Wingmate Roc and Progenitor Mimic and thought ... eh.
