Stolen Identity

I'm not sure you have many decks that work that great with them but, Cipher anyway :) ... Stolen Identity, Undercity Plague, Paranoid Delusions, Whispering Madness

Thanks for your comment, GeeksterPlays!

I absolutely think Rhystic Study is a better card, but I feel like it draws much more hate than Mystic Remora. I find players often just accept that I'll draw cards off of Mystic Remora, especially as it will go away by itself in just a few turns, whereas being able to pay just one mana to make my Rhystic Study card go away can be very annoying. I might add Rhystic Study in if this deck gets more competitive, but for now, I'll probably leave it out.

Willbreaker + Glimpse the Sun God seems good, but it's a two-card combo where neither piece does anything on its own, and all of my effort can be negated by just killing the Willbreaker.

As for Spitting Image and Stolen Identity, 6 mana seems like a lot for a clone effect, even if it is repeatable. Do you think it's worth it?

And yes, absolutely Alchemist's Refuge, I completely missed it. Thanks!

Rhystic Study might be better than Mystic Remora, no upkeep cost and it's for any spell, in my experience player's don't like paying extra for evrything they do.

If you like stealing stuff then Willbreaker + Glimpse the Sun God is hilarious.

Spitting Image for copying and re-copying shenanigans, and/or Stolen Identity

I love having an Alchemist's Refuge in play.

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.

It just occurred to me that Lord of the Unreal and unblockable illusions make this deck fairly similar to a bogles-style list with Invisible Stalker. If you focus on the unblockable illusions (Phantom Warrior, AEther Figment, Walking Dream, etc.), you can make use of anything that benefits from that unblockability. This includes equipment like Quietus Spike, Sword of Feast and Famine, and such. Or it could be auras like Curiosity, Auramancer's Guise, and so on. Finally, ciphered spells like Hands of Binding and Stolen Identity are fun with unblockables. Just an idea.

Usually true Razortooth, but not always the case. Copies can be counted as cast, but only if the effect creating it specifically states to do so such as with Isochron Scepter or spells with Cipher like Stolen Identity.

EternalBrewmaster on Temmet, Vizier of Clones

Stolen Identity, Sphinx's Revelation, Cackling Counterpart, Batterskull and Tempt with Reflections would all be solid, especially the first two. I would cut All Is Dust as I don't know why you would play it in the first place since you have so many colored permanents. Clone Legion, and Followed Footsteps would also be sweet. Personally I would cut cards like Grasp of Fate amd Counterspell and use creatures that you want to make tokens of anyways to do those sorts of things, like Angel of Serenity and Draining Whelk. Geist-Honored Monk would be sweet too.

Adorned Pouncer probably isn't good enough for EDH; I would also cut Enlightened Tutor, Secure the Wastes, and White Sun's Zenith. Play cards that actually do things like the ones I mentioned above instead of ones that late game make you a ton of tokens. Temmet is different from any other token general in that he wants you to have 1 big token rather that a massive token army. To that end, play Medomai the Ageless since this is a combat-focused Azorius deck and Blade of Selves for obvious reasons, but also for Anointed Procession shenanigans. I would also cut Sword of Fire and Ice, Phyrexian Processor, and Quietus Spike to make room for more creatures and tokenization cards. The sword is great and all, but just because you can play it in every deck doesn't mean you should, and there's plenty of card draw available to this deck without it. The processor is just off-flavor for me and there's not a lot of obvious ways to gain back the life, and Quietus Spike will certainly kill people quickly, and make them want to kill you quickly too, all of them. So again, I would suggest playing more token-producing value cards in those slots. Lightning Greaves is actually sub-optimal in this deck as the shroud will prevent you from targeting the equipped creature with Temmet's ability.

Hyperalgialysis on Tokemon *Budget* Temmet EDH

Your maybe board looks like one awesome deck. Your main would greatly benefit from including bits of it. Regardless, if you want to keep it under $50 I will try and offer some budget options you may not have considered. Quicksilver Gargantuan is a great Clone and pairs really well with Stolen Identity. Identity Thief is awesome with etb effects. I also like Sram's Expertise, Servo Exhibition and Raise the Alarm all solid token makers. If you start seeing some value in adding more instant and sorcery spells, Talrand, The Sky Summoner and Talrand's Invocation are both solid in that type of strategy. I did see the incovation in the maybe board but if talrand makes it in the invoaction is good too. Elspeth, Knight-Errant starts to get out of price range but is so good I had to mention her. A few good board wipes are Descend upon the Sinful Planar Outburst and Planar Cleansing. The cleansing makes your opponents so sad cause it hits mana rocks too. Judge's Familiar Spiketail Hatchling Spiketail Drakeling and Spiketail Drake are all good targets for copy effects and give that extra value since they are counterspells on a stick, and they fly! One last good thing to cover would be draw. Since you are lacking a little, Jace's Ingenuity and Opportunity are both great at instant speed and really net a lot of cards for the investment. Mind Spring is really good since it can dig so deep late game. Think Twice Catalog Artificer's Epiphany Tragic Lesson all instant speed and most do not require a discard.
