Repudiate / Replicate Discussion

KayneMarco: Not currently; I'm testing if it can come out since Repudiate / Replicate also produces tokens as a sorcery, and the difference between 5 and 1 is tiny once we get enough Parallel Lives . Rite can set us up out of nowhere with just Thrasios and a Lotus Cobra , though, so it might end up back in--but 9 mana is a lot to invest...
If it gets formally cut, it'll be announced in the changelog for War of the Spark's release.

As much as I like Repudiate / Replicate , I don’t see the purpose of it in the side. In Legacy, you run Stifle in the mainboard, or not at all. And because you aren’t splashing green, I don’t see what matchups you’re boarding in a two-mana Stifle for.
Another great anti-artifact card in blue is Hurkyl's Recall . It will absolutely ruin an Affinity player’s day.

Klazen: As Foretold is now on my radar for sure. While it does take some time to get going, this represents an interactive instant with, say, just 2 counters, during other players turns, let alone casting free things with more counters. This is probably among the best 3-CMC mana sources for this kind of strategy and might actually be better than Astral Cornucopia.
Give / Take is another card I have looked at but am not totally sold on. Take is the obviously exciting side, which would be used with Toothy most of the time, triggering Toothy with the draws to replace all the counters almost immediately. However, Give (or fusing Give with Take) is a little underwhelming for three extra mana, however, as there are better spells for distributing counters. Crucially, the effect of Take on Toothy can be replicated (for instance with Repudiate / Replicate itself) simply by cloning Toothy. If this were another Simic +1/+1 counters deck, I could justify including Give / Take, but this particular interaction between Toothy and clones means that I would rather have the flexibility of a clone instead of a narrower card such as this.
TheNocholas: Yes! War of the Spark (with proliferate and loyalty counters abound) could be even better for this particular deck than Ravnica Allegiance was. Already I want to play with Merfolk Skydiver , Neoform , Karn's Bastion , and the Landfall -- Proliferate elf, and some other cards, including the planeswalkers, are good candidates as well. Looking forward to seeing what else is announced for this set.
channelfireball12345: I do notice this card whenever I am looking for a cut. Bond Beetle is a good suggestion, and as I was looking into getting one, WAR is already providing a strictly better Ironshell in "Pollenbright Druid" (and the even spicier Merfolk Skydiver at the same CMC). Another alternative is Elvish Visionary or the new Fblthp, the Lost if I'm finding the main purpose of the beetle is to put the counter on Toothy. The reason I included this card is because Ironshell Beetle's original printing was in the first magic deck I ever owned, given to me as a gift, and I happened to collect the card in this deck at a GRN draft. The beetle will definitely be cut for something from WAR once it drops.

it basically just looks like a weird mashup of ramp into semi-big threats with suboptimal control elements. besides fetchlands, what activated or triggered abilities are you hoping to stop with Repudiate / Replicate ?

Here's my latest weird Ponza(ish) brew; I'd love your thoughts and suggestions!

The deck is built around my new favorite Land Destruction spell, Repudiate / Replicate . Yeah, it's conditional, but stifling an opponent's Fetchland is spectacularly evil in the early game. Plus the card offer a bunch of value in the late-game, unlike traditional Ponza spells such as Stone Rain .
Keeping 2 mana up is a VERY real cost though in a Sorcery-speed deck like Ponza, so I shifted to Flash creatures and Instant-speed effects.
Thanks in advance for your comments!

I considered it, but haven't actually tried it, I fear like it's too expensive and might be too easily countered... I have gotten some wins thanks to the ascendancy, but it was thanks to the awesome Biogenic Ooze combo with Repudiate / Replicate

Greetings! I am interested in how focusing on loyalty counters with Pir and Toothy is treating you. I like the inclusion of Spike Weaver especially in a superfriends build; I might have to get one for my own deck!
For my build of these partners, I instead focused on making great use of Toothy, Imaginary Friend itself, leveraging many +1/+1 counter cards, which Toothy consistently turns into a threat, and more importantly card draw. The deck is designed to be able to play many cards drawn with Toothy when it is removed, leaning into cheaper ramp and threats, but planeswalkers are obviously good for this strategy too, including Nissa, Voice of Zendikar . Karn Liberated is excellent and totally worth acquiring as repeatable removal for anything, which is useful for this color combination. Even if Toothy is removed early, the deck can combine Pir and other spells and +1/+1 counters in creative and interactive ways. In particular I have been impressed by Walking Ballista (again, unique effect for these colors, and serious synergy with Pir) and Generous Patron which I believe are both totally serviceable in your build.
One thing I like about each of the Partners: blinking and even cloning Toothy results in drawing the cards from the counters and then replacing all the counters on Toothy (or the toothy clone). I have included Repudiate / Replicate and a couple other clone cards for this reason. Another thing I absolutely recommend is trying two-headed giant EDH with your group. Pir, Imaginative Rascal affects your teammates' counters too, which can matter in totally unexpected ways.
Here is a link to my version. Good luck with these crazy kids!
