Rite of Replication Discussion

Mortarpod_Blues on UW Petitioner Self Mill...Reanimator Combo?

1 day ago

In no particular order, I've got some suggestions you might have a look at. Some cards are just to round out the deck and give you a little more defensive capability, and others are to fully lean-into the self-mill theme you've got going. In particular, you might want to put in more blink effects so you can tap your Petitioners more than once per turn/round.

Still a super freaking cool concept! It turns what the card was MEANT to do on its head, and makes it that much more potent (it's easier to mill just one person-- yourself-- than it is to try and handle all your opponents at once instead).

If you want to be that person in the pod you can always add in Rite of Replication on your Reaper King and make copies of him to pop many things :P

You considered running Rite of Replication to make more tokens?

I think what this deck wants is some ways to make infinite mana. The one that would be best, in my mind is Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter . You'll want more mana rocks, although I think you want more anyway, but with that combo, you can power out Blightsteel or proliferate out the table with Contagion Engine , Contagion Clasp , or Viral Drake . You'll want the typical Muddle the Mixture to grab the combo, and artifact tutors such as Whir of Invention , Fabricate , and Tezzeret the Seeker can get your Engine and Clasp, as well.

Another classic mono-blue combo is Pili-Pala + Grand Architect . I like that one here, since you want to power up your blue and artifact infect creatures, anyway.

Next is Palinchron . You're already running High Tide and Caged Sun , so that's one option to go infinite. Deadeye Navigator can also combo with Palinchron.

A cheaper alternative is the old Pauper Peregrine Drake combo. You use Ghostly Flicker , Illusionist's Stratagem , or Displace to blink Drake, Great Whale , or Palinchron with Mnemonic Wall , Archaeomancer , or Salvager of Secrets , returning the instant each time.

To tie all of these combos together, Merchant Scroll and Mystical Tutor can get the Instants or Whir of Invention .

I think you could use a lot more mana rocks, as well. I would start with Sky Diamond , Mind Stone , Worn Powerstone , Thran Dynamo , and Thought Vessel .

I'm also surprised not to see Corrupted Conscience in here. Love that card.

As for cuts, I'm not really sure what Helm of the Host is doing here. It's not your commander you want more of, it's infect creatures. For that kind of mana, you could just kick Rite of Replication . Not really sure what Telepathy is for. If anything, you don't want the table to know when the infect player is a danger. Borrowing 100,000 Arrows has always been a pet card of mine, but making the kind of mana you are, you want X spells. Blue Sun's Zenith , Open Into Wonder , and Pull from Tomorrow are you friends.

Since you're limited on infect creatures, you might want normal clone effects. Phantasmal Image is cheap. Gigantoplasm can copy an infect creature and one-shot people, Quicksilver Gargantuan to a lesser extent. Phyrexian Metamorph is flexible. Vizier of Many Faces has recursion. Stunt Double can surprise the table by speeding up the clock just before your turn. Fated Infatuation comes with card selection. Mirror of the Forebears survives board wipes. Cackling Counterpart , Stolen Identity , Quasiduplicate , and Saheeli's Artistry can all copy creatures multiple times.

I can see that. If you're not running Hour of Promise , you probably don't need Ulvenwald Hydra . I only run him in Tatyova because he's a non-legendary creature for Rite of Replication and grabs Nkythos. The reach has been funnily relevant, though.

Rytlock on Baby's First Deck

Here's some things you might consider changing around.

This deck wants to win by copying lots of things. There are a few ways for you to win. One of the easier ways to do this might be to exploit Biovisionary . You just have to get four of him on your board by the end of your turn to win. Cards that you included already, like Rite of Replication make this very easy to pull off, provided you have both ready to go.

Birthing Pod , and Fauna Shaman , although more expensive, can help you search for important creatures like Biovisionary or even Worldgorger Dragon . You already have a few ways to make tokens or copies of Biovisionary

Ixidron , and Kederekt Leviathan can help to slow down your opponents and clear their creatures if you find yourself in trouble.

Genesis is another good creature that can pull things from your graveyard if you screw up or someone kills your Biovisionary .

Lastly, Crystal Shard , and Conjurer's Closet can be used to flicker your own creatures to have them constantly re-enter the battlefield and trigger effects.

Things to reconsider:

Comet Storm Bad.

Insidious Will You have a lot of counterspells. Consider cutting some of the higher mana cost ones like this.

Reiterate , Increasing Vengeance , Reverberate These might all be better if they copied creatures instead of just instants/sorceries. (Don't let go of all of these, just cut them back to one or two.)

Lightning Strike Bad. Lightning Bolt is better, but you really have no use for cards like this in the deck.

Kogarashi on Copying spells with X in ...

Slight addendums:

  1. Copies are only cast if the effect says they are cast. Reverberate , for example, does not say to cast the copy. Isochron Scepter does. Usually copies that are cast are because the effect is copying a card (such as the one exiled by the Scepter), rather than a spell on the stack.

  2. If you copy a kicked spell, your copy is also kicked. You can't pay additional costs of the spells you copy, but whatever their attributes are on the stack (kicker or multikicker paid, overloaded, modes chosen, etc.), your copy has those same attributes. So if you Reverberate someone's kicked Rite of Replication or overloaded Cyclonic Rift , your copy is also kicked/overloaded.

Just a head up. The creature would enter with 4, if biomancers power is at 2 and doubling season in play. Also, simic ascendancy would get 8 counters, as it sees 4 counters being put on a crrature, it tries to put 4 counters on itself, but doubling season will make it 8.

Creatures get bigger if biomancers power is bigger, of if you have multiple copies. I once Rite of Replication ed a biomancer with kicker. They each came in with 2 counters. So each other creature after that came in with 22 extra counters (4 x 5 +2 = 22).
