Blade of Selves Discussion

Phoe, hard question. I would possibly cut cards like vigor, shalai, mycoloth, Master biomancer or Sheoldred since they don't add consistency for a win but are just goodstuff to make room for tutors and Blade of Selves, Sage of Hours and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord (winning with jarad gets old really quickly).
Fetch jarad with 40 power on board, Blade of selves equipped on reyhan swings for 21 commander damage in a 4man game (explained in a primer). Herald of Secret Streams, Simic Ascendancy (not included in my deck) and my favorite Walking Archive are some powerful win options.
I hope you have fun with these 2!

However, Soulherder's dual use as a general value accumulator and a wincon sets it, imo, as a must-have for any blink deck. Blade of Selves might not be as good as, perhaps, Progenitor Mimic, Helm of the Host, or other cards that don't require you to attack to get copies.

Cards like Soulherder, Pride Sovereign, and Galepowder Mage might be too slow/conditional to be effective. Pride sovereign is just a beater, which you may find lacklustre over time. Blade of Selves is a little expensive but I think it’s ridiculous in flicker builds.
One last thing to think about. You may not have enough mana to operate smoothly. You may want to consider adding 2-4 more lands, and possibly a couple more mana rocks to consistently be able to cast your spells. It depends on how your etb ramp works out though.

goldlion Thanks for all the suggestions! I'll give my thoughts on all of them here:
Commander Eesha Cool card! love the art and seems very useful! My one thought is that I prioritized keeping my evasive creatures mostly below 4cmc, since ideally I'd like to swing in on the turn Marisi hits the board. This still seems like it could be worth including though since it's always gonna be unblockable.
Terastodon is a card I've always liked, but I just wasn't sure if its cost was too high for this mostly aggressive deck. Definitely worth a try though, I'll test some games with him!
Blade of Selves Awesome, unique effect, and I have one in my collection already! Great suggestion!
Primal Vigor I had one, but I gave it to the Ghired player. I'll get one for sure when I get a chance, it's great in the deck, but it's sadly pretty expensive.
I agree with the thought about small flyers, I'll probably want some better evasive stuff, though hopefully still low on the curve. Happy to hear more ideas if you have any!
Some other cards I found in my collection since putting this list together, and am considering adding, are Sunblast Angel, Master Warcraft, Rhythm of the Wild, and Naya Charm The first two seem especially suited to the deck's goals, while the latter two are just solid and flexible cards in our colors. I like that Sunblast Angel can wipe the board of our last oppenent standing, so that we can easily finish them off at the game's finale.

Maybe removing a few more of the straight vanilla fliers? As much to get it to 100 as to keep it to novel cards that spice things it up. I like that goblin ballon brigade makes you work for it... not efficient, but fun(ny).
Oh man, I remember I used to have a Soltari Foot Soldier... totally forgot about that card, but I remember loving the art when I had it 22 years ago. Bonus points for this one.
I like the cards that are giving other people creatures.. What about Descent of the Dragons as a removal for things that are hurting your strategy, and as a trade giving them beaters to hit your other opponents? Sharing is caring after all. Terastodon could also be excellent in the flavour of removal.
An eventual card to add—if this deck proves to be fun enough to keep together and do 1 or 2 little upgrades for—would be Blade of Selves. Myriad cards could be great to explore in general, but it's nice to be able to choose which creature has it.
Primal Vigor? A sweet global enchantment, especially when you WANT to give other people tokens and counters.
I wish there was black in here... Clackbridge Troll (eldraine) would be fun.
Loving the chaos!!

Does Blade of Selves have any use here? It's my favorite card, and it does nice things with Nazahn in a regular Nazahn deck. But I'm wondering if it could fit into Spy Cat as well?

Duplicating Koko is awesome too. Blade of Selves is hilarious. It is my favorite card in the format, and was actually the inspiration for making the deck. Does very well on Kokusho, Gary, or Disciple.
Mirror of the Forebears is awesome too. According to EDHREC I'm the only one with it ina kokusho deck. Since there are no other dragons you name Spirit (this came in handy once when I was able to make a second Crypt Ghast and made a ton of mana.)
It ends up being a terrific sac outlet. I bring Kokusho back from the grave, then activate Mirror to kill Kokusho, then attack with Mirror, then Reanimate Kokusho again, and he dies instantly... it's a sac outlet for the entire rest of the turn.
Mirage Mirror is also a great card. Very versatile. I will often double activate it, making it become Kokusho, but before that resolves I activate it again making it into a Cabal Coffers, then tap it, then let it become Kokusho.
Mimic Vat has been really fun too. And... I think those are all my ways to duplicate Koko.
Oh yeah, also Mirrorpool which is spendy to activate but had saved the game for me when i had no sac outlet.
