Description

This deck is all about making The Mimeoplasm into gigantic, terrifying atrocities, and then using it to destroy worlds. This is achieved by dumping big nasties into the yard and making stupid amounts of +1/+1 counters. Not a super original strategy for a mimeo deck, but why fix what ain't broke?

Fun combos include:

Play Rite of Replication or Progenitor Mimic on a Corpsejack Menace to make exponentially stupid counter growth. I've also had fun making tokens of Engulfing Slagwurm and my dudes that assign damage as though they weren't blocked.

Szadek, Lord of Secrets gets crazy with this +1/+1 counter build.

Silent-Blade Oni is always a good time, but he really comes in handy when I need to reset my commander. Ninjitsu Mimeo back to my hand, steal a spell, then bring back Mimeo as something bigger or more useful. (I also think Demon Ninja is one of the coolest subtypes I've ever seen.)

Deadeye Navigator also resets mimeo, but it does so much more than that too. I've used it to bounce Prime Speaker Zegana into a Laboratory Maniac win more than a few times.

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord on anything big seems to be my most consistent win-con so far.

Reyhan, Last of the Abzan and/or Vorel of the Hull Clade can make all of the above combos even more outrageous and hard to stop if I can just keep creatures out.

There are many more interesting combos and interactions, too many to list. The Mimeoplasm is a super fun commander and can make plenty of interesting and unusual interactions, especially when playing with opponents' graveyards. This deck can mill out opponents, but I didn't want to make another straight mill deck. This one is just seasoned with mill. I try to focus mainly on my own yard to avoid making opponents seek revenge, but I'm definitely not opposed to eating critters from other graveyards if it will give me an edge.

I think I have my decklist pretty much where I need it, I just need to play the deck more. I've caught myself on a few misplays that cost me games. This deck is usually a strong contender at my table and it sure is a heck of a lot of fun to play. Sultai is such a fun color scheme.

Consider Kalonian Hydra and Winding Constrictor. Hangarback Walker may also be good, along with Walking Ballista.

Maybe Death's Shadow could also help

Death's Shadow is not good in EDH. It gets -X/-X, where X is your life total, which is 40 in EDH. You'd have to lose a lot of life in order to even let him land.

True, he usually dies on entry in EDH. But with mimeo, that effectively gives me easy access to 13 counters to put on whatever else mimeo eats. And it's only one black to put him in the yard. So it's not bad. That being said, it is too expensive of a card for that purpose in my opinion, and the price is definitely because of other formats.

Thank you all for the suggestions.

Oh. I didn't even think about that.

I've found that big Eldrazi are awesome with Mimeoplasm. They are awesome for adding counters to the Mimeoplasm and they are awesome if you cast/reanimate them too. Artisan of Kozilek, Void Winnower, and It That Betrays are some of my favorites.

Or you can go more of the combo route. Necrotic Ooze + Disciple of the Ring is ridiculous.

here is my mim deck, it's a bit more on the mill/counter game than this but there we're still using many of the same cards. You have a lot here I want to use in mine haha. Would love to hear your thoughts on it!

I like this deck a lot! There are so many fun combos but I really think you could use a Master Biomancer in here with all the creatures you're running.

Sire of Stagnation is a wicked eldrazi for mimeoplasm too

Awesome deck. Would a Doubling Season be really beneficial?

Voltron3030 says... #12

Not really. I don't run many tokens and zero planeswalkers so it'd just be a $50 corpsejack menace in here.

The card doubles tokens and counters, and your first sentence explaining the deck said, "Play Rite of Replication or Progenitor Mimic on a Corpsejack Menace to make exponentially stupid counter growth. I've also had fun making tokens of Engulfing Slagwurm and my dudes that assign damage as though they weren't blocked. Szadek, Lord of Secrets gets crazy with this +1/+1 counter build".

Which made me under the impression doubling those counters would be beneficial. The card also works with your commander since when he is cast from the command zone it is in fact counters that are put on him, so if you had a Death's Shadow and a Glistener Elf in your graveyard for The Mimeoplasm, and had Doubling Season on the board, that's a 26/26 with infect you could make.

Parallel Lives will essentially do the same on a budget, at least for the tokens. Vigor is fun too.

I'm also not going to drop that kind of money on a single piece of paper that makes some other slips of paper cooler.

oh, sorry, I didn't realize this was a budget deck.
