Soul Separator

Artifact

, , Sacrifice Soul Separator: Exile target creature card from your graveyard. Put a token onto the battlefield that's a copy of that card except it's a 1/1, it's a Spirit in addition to its other types, and it has flying. Put a black Zombie creature token onto the battlefield with power equal to that card's power and toughness equal to that card's toughness.

Tree of Perdition and Transmutation won't work with how state based checks and the stack works. If the tree is dead you can't have it switch its toughness with a life total, similarly if it was moved to any other area of the game before the ability resolved. You can use things like Frogify if you cast it at instant speed, I think. I know an anthem effect to make it a 1/14 beforehand would be the best bet. Or something like Soul Separator should work.

The Wall of Shards + Tainted Remedy thing is definitely cute. I'll consider it but I can't see me justifying take anything out for those two cards. If I get an Exquisite Blood , I'll be putting it in my Vampire deck I'm building before this deck. I prefer to have solid things that can work without comboing off. The only really dead card in this deck is Darkest Hour and I mean dead as in, it doesn't do anything helpful outside of the combo.

I have a Grizzly Bear on the battlefield. I activate Soul Separator targetting Quicksilver Gargantuan , getting a 7/7 Black Zombie and having the other token copy the bear. What are the characteristics of the token?

Thespian's Stage can copy your boss without the slumber counters. Soul Separator can take it from a graveyard and give you a 2 mana legendary land and a 12/12 zombie

Soul Separator with good creatures makes your tokens amazing like imagine a 1/1 flying hellrider only you have seven of them that’s like 49 damage on one swing

TheRedGoat: I agree that Young Pyromancer would need more instants/sorceries to be consistent, but I'd be lying if creating at least one token of it and then making the rest of your tokens a copy of it just to make a ton more tokens didn't make the Johnny inside me excited. Takes some setting up, but if you can get a second combat phase through Combat Celebrant or similar and another copy effect, things can quickly go terribly wrong for your opponent(s). Still, the only repeatably castable instant or sorcery here is Stolen Identity (I think), and that only happens if you can reliably get the creature it's encoded on through blockers and keep it safe, so the Pyromancer might need to be looked at more closely. Or maybe Metallurgic Summonings has a place in here?

As for the theft stuff, many, if not most, of the spells that create copies of creatures can target any creature. So if they play a big scary creature, you can say "I see your Blightsteel Colossus and raise you..." copies the Colossus, enters combat phase "2 (1st copy + Brudiclad's Myr) + (number of other tokens you already had). How 'bout dem apples?"

Which is the kind of thing I think Daedalus19876 was going for, not necessarily taking their creature and then copying it.

I do think God-Pharaoh's Gift and Back from the Brink merit inclusion, though Soul Separator can be tricky to use, since it splits up the abilities and stats. Often, it's the combination of the abilities and stats that make a threat a threat.

Otherwise, I do feel that it might be prudent to have some easy sac outlets to either prevent something like a rogue Echoing Truth from ruining your day or as a way to punish boardwipes if the outlet let's you deal direct damage, as with Goblin Bombardment.

Okay, so I did some checking around and found an edhrec article on Brudiclad, and they set some good ground rules for the deck:

Firstly, don't go for too many styles of play. You've got a ton of sources for token creation, and there's no reason to short yourself by being greedy about the kinds you'd like. (by example I feel you have too few spells to trigger Young Pyromancer atm)

Secondly, there is a big difference in going big and going wide as well as versatility and power. All your tokens becoming big and hasty isn't the same as being small with special abilities. (big difference in token beaters and token Eldrazi scions)

I would point out that the article covers only two builds: artifacts or spell slinger. You say you want to emphasize a clone/theft build, but honestly I'm not sure Brudiclad is well suited to that. To my knowledge such a build would rather play Mind Control and Threaten than Goblinslide or Goblin Assault (at least to name the weaker cards I see you running).

I will say that if you want to just run a bunch of random good stuff cards to make tokens of, then you need the following package: Soul Separator, Soul Foundry, God-Pharaoh's Gift, and Back from the Brink. Those cards, plus Mimic Vat and the Feldon in your maybe board, act as a perfect graveyard package for whatever other creatures you want to run. Other "packages" you should look into are ETB copy effects (see Blade of Selves, sacrifice outlets (like Goblin Bombardment for having a mass token hoard), and if you decide to run any tokens that generate mana there's always "x-spells".

Best of luck to you! I can definitely say that I'll be trying out that grave package, but if you get to it first let me know how it plays in your meta! Also as a disclaimer I don't know what running some of these packages will do to the power level of your deck. It may be lower tier, or it may be too OP for your playgroup. Use with caution.
