Create a token 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.)

Stolen Identity Discussion

I love the intention behind this. I really wanna see that karaoke. One important point: As far as I know, EDHrec doesn't include data from tappedout, so uploading lists here will only help in providing awesome lists, but it won't count towards the 600.
Now to the topic:
Clones seems the way to go indeed. Helm of the Host is interesting for Alirios, as are Followed Footsteps and maybe Clone Legion. Also: Infinite Reflection, Minion Reflector, Mirror Mockery, Stolen Identity, Zndrsplt's Judgment. And permanent flicker sources should be useful, as well: Conjurer's Closet, Deadeye Navigator, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling. Oh, and if there ever was a deck to include Identity Thief, this is it.

love it. have you considered Stolen Identity , or green for acceleration and replicate and Altered Ego ? and i'm still getting used to pioneer but as an edh player i'm cringing at the lack of evasion, so what's your thoughts on Ferocity of the Wilds / Crash Through / Teleportal / Savage Alliance / Glaring Spotlight / Barrage of Boulders / Cosmotronic Wave ? thanks in advance

Thanks for the feedback, king-saproling! With this deck I'm just trying to rush to where I go infinite, rather than protect it too much other than counter spells and a couple other protective spells. Also, minimizing the number of creatures was another goal. Here's my thoughts on the suggestions:
Sigil Tracer doesn't do much when Mizzix isn't on the field which can happen a decent amount of the time
Depths of Desire is a free spell with 2 experience counters, but it doesn't replace itself so I think Teferi's Time Twist is better since Mizzix would return to the battlefield after a board wipe without having to cast them out again, plus TTT can be imprinted on Isochron Scepter in a pinch
Rush of Knowledge was a card I had considered but now thinking about it again, with Mizzix out, it's B: Draw 4 cards which is very efficient. I'll have to consider this more. Might swap this in for one of the creatures in the deck
Echo Storm is nice for ramping, but I like my ramp to be 2 CMC or less, so even if the spell is copied a couple times, you're late in the game where you no longer need ramp anyway
Supplant Form is an interesting way to protect Mizzix, but it costs a lot and if I already have 4+ experience counters I'm probably going infinite soon anyway, so having TTT would be better, especially since I can use it on Mizzix early.
Clone Legion I'm not trying to win through combat, so this would be more of a protective/value play. It's unlikely most other decks are going to have creatures that would benefit my game plan, so this can be a dead card in hand most games
Ghired's Belligerence I'm not making tokens other than Treasure , and to make this card worth it I already have to have a ton of experience or gone infinite on Mana at which point I should be winning already

Nice! I dig that you went for a different take on Mizzix rather than the usual storm lines.
You might like these: Sigil Tracer , Depths of Desire , Rush of Knowledge , Echo Storm , Saheeli's Artistry , Supplant Form , Stolen Identity , Clone Legion , Hate Mirage , Rite of Replication , Radiate , Ghired's Belligerence , Archaeomancer

I love the Anime super hero style of build!
Need to pack in more card advantage, this current list will run out of gas fast.

Also, stuff that allows you to steal creatures from other people seems pretty alright by me. You'll be the controller, so you still get to 'search' your library for Fblthp even if you 'sacrifice' their creature to the staff. I'm thinking Bribery , Treachery , Mind Control , In Bolas's Clutches , and Sudden Substitution . Even though you can't have creatures in your library, you can still have creatures on your board! :D
In a similar vein, I'd recommend stuff like Clone Legion , Mirage Mirror , Mirror Match , Rite of Replication , Saheeli's Artistry , Stolen Identity , Supplant Form . These let you copy creatures in play, which is (I cannot stress this enough) VERY POWERFUL with counterspell support. The ability to let only certain threats slip through the cracks means you are effectively deciding what you want to copy later. Let them have their It That Betrays for now, you can just make 5 token copies of it next turn with Rite of Replication. Clones, with counterspell support and protection, can be an alternate win condition in their own right. After all, other people planned on winning with that creature - why can't you?
