greyninja on Best two color shapeshifter deck ...

I've been beaten in a multiplayer tourney at my lgs by Sakashima the Impostor. It does work lol

Mistform Ultimus is another interesting mono blue option. Green adds some good shapeshifters; but Profet93 might be right about black for tutors and control

I have Sakashima the Impostor in my Nekusar deck as well, because he's able to copy Nekusar while retaining his name. This way, you have another way to go and deal tons of damage while accelerating draws.

Ok so most of these are solid but Sakashima the Impostor does have a problem. She only returns to your hand at end of turn.

If you ran Deepglow Skate, you could add more planeswalkers to the deck to allow them to activate the ults immediately. Alchemist's Refuge and Leyline of Anticipation giving you flash is good to use Ramos on other player's turns, plus they go well with Seedborn Muse if you have it. Flameshadow Conjuring, Deadeye Navigator, Eerie Interlude, Faith's Reward, Progenitor Mimic, Stolen Identity, Rite of Replication, and Clone Legion allow you to abuse more ETB effects. Craterhoof Behemoth, Venser, Shaper Savant, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Zealous Conscripts, Acidic Slime, Chancellor of the Forge, Chancellor of the Spires, Sepulchral Primordial, Luminate Primordial, Duplicant, Dragonlord Silumgar, Sower of Temptation, Hornet Queen, Deranged Hermit, Myr Battlesphere, Angel of Invention, Cultivator of Blades, have great ETB effects to be abused. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Cytoplast Manipulator work really well with the Marchesa, the Black Rose you're running. Necropolis Regent, Master Biomancer, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, Death's Presence, Experiment Kraj, and Verdurous Gearhulk are great for building up creatures with lots of +1/+1 counters. Greater Good, Prime Speaker Zegana, and Tishana, Voice of Thunder are great card draw sources for this deck. If you reanimate creatures from the graveyard often enough, Flayer of the Hatebound is strong in that department, and if you're looking for more big damage/lifeloss effects, Warstorm Surge, Stalking Vengeance, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, and Pathbreaker Ibex are good as wel. Conflux is really strong with Ramos in play, especially with Sakashima the Impostor copying him. If don't mind it being janky, you can copy your Panharmonicon by turning it into a creature with Karn, Silver Golem or March of the Machines. Take it a step further by adding Opalescence so your enchantments can be copied too. Ultimately, this is just supposed to be a big list of cards to draw inspiration from, not to all be added to the deck.

JuiceboxHero You could also consider using Mirror Gallery and Brothers Yamazaki to get around this somewhat. Also, there is a legendary clone you might consider Sakashima the Impostor to get around this dilemma. Check out my Riku deck, I'd like to know what you think about it. All criticism is welcome

CommunistBastard on I copy this. And this.. And this...

Mirage Mirror would be phenomenal for him if it entered the battlefield. Since it does not, I don't think it really fits here because I'll then rely on someone else to play something worth copying and can't abuse it with Riku. I'll throw it in though and test it out to see if it's better than I'm thinking. The card is a monster in my Sakashima the Impostor clone tribal deck though :)
