that's why Ratchet Bomb is so effective against them.
That's what i was thinking of doing, as long as that is correct.
Not all tokens have aCMC of 0 though, for instance, Progenitor Mimic tokens copy the CMC of the card
Unless they are copies of existing creatures, then they have a CMC of 0. If you cast Cackling Counterpart copying a Master of Waves , then the token's CMC will be 4. Tokens from Assemble the Legion do not have a mana cost.
Some tokens do have a CMC though. Tokens that are a copy of an actual creature card have the same CMC as the original. This is why Pack Rat is played in the Mono-black devotion decks that are making it to Top 8 in PTs and GPs.
also, would Clone 's CMC and the copied cards CMC both count? say if i copy a Nightveil Specter would the blue devotion be equal to both the Clone and the Nightveil Specter , being four? or just the three?
Clone copies the card exactly. It will retain none of its original abilities, color, CMC, power and toughness, artist, set, ect.
As of M14, expansion/set is no longer a copiable value. Artist never has been.
Yes, I know. I was just listing things that appeared on the card.
