Stolen Identity

Sorcery

Put a token onto the battlefield that's a copy of target artifact or creature. Cipher (Then you may exile this spell card encoded on a creature you control. Whenever that creature deals combat damage to a player, its controller may cast a copy of the encoded card without paying its mana cost.)

Have you considered Stolen Identity for more token copying

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.

Soul Foundry, Stolen Identity, Supplant Form, Rite of the Raging Storm, maybe Shapesharer.

Deep-Sea Kraken is cheap with suspend then you can get a 6/6 unblockable.

Blighted Agent if you don't mind Infect.

How do you not have The Locust God here already?

Looks like a fun deck. I would be tempted to even go almost creatureless except for clones. Then when you hit them with powerful creatures ITS - ALL - THEIR - FAULT.

@Enral Thanks, I like the idea of adding SDT. I'll have to see what to take out for that card.

@Valzasaurus Glad you enjoy it.

About life gain: Don't worry! The cool thing about theft deck is that the answers always lie in your opponents decks ;)

So these are the cards you probably have overlooked: Dead Man's Chest, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Acquire, Expropriate, Knowledge Exploitation, Mind's Dilation, Praetor's Grasp, Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, Sakashima the Impostor, Evil Twin, Stolen Identity, Psychic Intrusion, Memory Plunder, Sakashima's Student, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Daring Thief & Silent-Blade Oni

Magus of the Moon... Blood Moon... Imperial Recruiter... Gamble...

My 4 color (no red) Hermit Druid litterally dies if any Blood Moon effect is dropped.

You make me sad.

Onto more pressing matters, Ruination? ugh... I am glad I don't know you IRL, this deck would be brutal to go against.


Some suggestions would be Possibility Storm, Stolen Identity, Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip, and Outpost Siege. The first one is just good fun and chaos and OMYGOD Magus of the Moon got out from an Iron Myr... The other three are card advantage, with the first of them being chaos and card advantage.

Up to you on all of this, but I'll toss you a +1 for the deck and I certainly hope we never play together for my sake!
