LOL, yeah, I ask a lot, all at once. But damn really? That's interesting..same name, lots of similar cards...But ok.

Yeah, makes sense. Metallic Mimic does some work..indeed.

I like River Kelpie because he draws when other people do graveyard stuff. True, but in a heavy creature meta Clique is pretty good. Not Amazing!, but pretty good.

Yeahhhh, I would definitely give Vigean Graftmage another try. When he comes out people always anticipate what's gonna happen and then you see the "oh, ohhh, Ohhhhhhhh" face after they read it lol

Completely agree! Razaketh is great, it's one of the non-free sac outlets that I actually loved in this deck because the 2 life can matter...but yeah, 8 AND triple Black can be difficult. Or, you're just playing that and doing nothing else that turn which feels bad.

Thanks man, I appreciate that :)

I just checked out the list you posted and I like the changes you've made: Phantasmal Image - not a change, but clones are awesome and I might add him. Imperial Recruiter - tutors are always great. Chasm Skulker - I had it in my first build, cut it, and now I realize just having blockers in this deck is awesome because your life gets dangerously low sometimes. Chaos Warp - great in general Last One Standing - seems really good, cheaper boardwipe. Ever backfire though? Midnight Reaper - def have to try this out, I just put in Harvester of Souls after having it for a while and this seems like a cheaper version. Shifting Shadow - seems like a powerhouse if no one catches on and removes it lol I've wanted to add this for quite a while. Glen Elendra Archmage - awesome with Mikaeus lol I'm sure you know. Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip - I'm not a huge fan of that 7 mana cost to flip honestly, but, the effects do seem somewhat worth it. Sakashima the Impostor - I would have thought this is really good in Anger - I can understand that. I sometimes forget you need a mountain. Zealous Conscripts - I actually also took this out from my starting build. It didn't do much for me when people play small creatures and often just drew hate since people thought I ran the Kiki combo... Scourge of the Throne - I actually really like this card, but haven't played it much to have an opinion on it, but when I have, it hasn't done the amount of work I expected it too sadly. Consecrated Sphinx - seems great. I may test this out, I need more draw in my list. No Rune-Scarred Demon? - have you ever tested him out? I like the way it plays most times.

LANDS: I need a Hall of the Bandit Lord though, seems good.

Have you considered Forge of Heroes and Tarnished Citadel? Forge seems pretty good and I'm debating citadel, cuz 3 damage per colored mana seems like it might be pushing it.

Good on you for putting every fetch land though! I haven't invested That much money into my Marchesa landbase, but I should. Personally, personally, I don't think the OG duals are worth their cost in any deck lol - maybe when they were cheaper and I got a scrubland for my Teysa deck at $60, but now each being minimum $100?.. meh.. But I know everyone has different opinions on them.

Overall though, I really like the look of your list - it seems solid!

The legend rule still applies only if certain card that doesn't change the name to it is where it doesn't apply. Ex. Lazav, Dimir Mastermind, Sakashima the Impostor, etc.

Pikobyte on Muldrotha Experience - *Need advice*

1 month ago

You seem to play a lot of cards with very limited use. Crucible of Worlds and Ramunap Excavator just do the same as your commander unless you have extra landdrops. Tested those cards in my deck and they underperformed. I suggest cutting them and replace them with protection for your commander like Diplomatic Immunity.

Why do you play Inexorable Tide? Just for those 3 planeswalkers? I would cut that too.

To get the best use of your commander I would cut down your instants and sorcery’s a bit. Try to replace them with permanent cards with similar effects. I just run 4 in my deck and it works really well.

Try to get some mill going with Mesmeric Orb or Hedron Crab.

Sakashima the Impostor can give you a 2nd Muldrotha, allowing to play 2 permanents of each type each turn.

Take a look at my list and deck description and you may get some ideas. My deck is pretty well tuned, works well and is a blast to play. You can find it in my profile and I have a budget version of it too.

Hope this helps, keep developing it! Muldrotha is a ton of fun and well worth the effort.

Daedalus19876 on Yuriko, Elsa's Assassin (Let it go Let it go)

1 month ago

Definitely looks good! I do have a few questions/suggestions though...

Deck NEEDS a Scroll Rack. Twinning Glass is cute, but I think the utility is far too limited to be worth a slot (since most of the things you're bouncing are really low CMC anyway, like Quickling). I'd also run Mystical Tutor and Vampiric Tutor to respond to Yuriko's trigger and hit a huge spell. Have you considered Sakashima the Impostor as an additional copy of Yuriko (with a different name) to double up on triggers?

I'll also tag Casey4321, who I know has a good Yuriko deck.

Pikobyte on Muldrotha, the „Fun“ in „Funeral“

1 month ago

Just removed Clever Impersonator for Sakashima the Impostor. I have no clue why I didn’t get this idea before but oh boy is this sweet.

Having 2 Muldrotha doubles the fun each turn. 2 Meren or Sheoldred are something lovely too

SurpriZe on card:Kira, Great Glass-Spinner clones

If Sakashima the Impostor copies Kira, Great Glass-Spinner, and I have both of them on the battlefield, will creatures I control have two layers of protection, meaning that two consecutive spells/abilities targeting each creature I control will get countered?

Kogarashi on Lazav The Multifarious and ...

2 months ago

I should add that cards like Lazav, the Multifarious, Lazav, Dimir Mastermind, and Sakashima the Impostor, which copy another creature but don't change names, are good for copying Legendary creatures since they retain their own name. This means if your Lazav is copying Athreos and you play another Athreos, the legend rule won't come into effect.

Mirror Gallery + Mirage Mirror or any clone effects is good. There is Sakashima the Impostor & Helm of the Host.

But why i didn't go for more Clone effect is because, i like the bounce effect a little bit more. Thats because i can respond to Removal and i can use it as removal. I like to go for a little bit more control.
