Body Double Discussion

Thanks for the suggestion Lumovanis, I hadn’t considered Body Double and it’s a solid option. It can target our opponent’s graveyard and/or our own… which gives it a recursion-like quality in Volo. I am committed to not doubling up on creature types though, and I think the Clever Impersonator deserves the shapeshifter slot because of its lower cmc and its ability to clone non-creature permanents. Doubling Season and Parallel Lives don’t actually work with Volo due to the wording of the rules text “a copy of a creature spell becomes a token”… this technically doesn’t count as creating a creature token.

You're definitely right about not having enough ramp, but I was having trouble finding ramp that remained on-theme. Do you have any suggestions??
As for the large cmcs, yes, I see your point. The idea was to get those into graveyards, probably by discard via overdraw with "investigate" or with Careful Study , and then playing smaller mimics that copy them like Body Double or Dimir Doppelganger . But you're right in that there's not a ton of support for that mechanic here.
More ramp would certainly solve a lot of problems.
Thanks for the advice!

I was inspired by Body Double to create a Zombie-specific shapeshifter which complements the Corpse Centipede:
Any comments or suggestions are welcome!

This deck is a really cool concept, but i feel like it might more efficient as a reanimator deck. Like you can get him into the graveyard with tutors Buried Alive Gravebreaker Lamia Entomb , or just by drawing and discarding aggressively with Cathartic Reunion , Chart a Course , Faithless Looting etc. Then once you got him in your graveyard you can just Bond of Revival , Body Double , Dread Return , Exhume , Victimize . cause as of now he costs 8 mana and only one other card is gonna be able to cascade into him so either 8 mana or 10 mana which is a lot of mana right. in terms of the fling plan thats awesome, you can even replace a land with Kazuul's Fury Flip, and even add Chandra's Ignition for that fiery finish too

This looks cool, but it really should have a copy of Body Double , for uhh...no particular reason.

Testing out some temporary changes: Dakmor Salvage, Golgari Thug, Darkblast, Body Double, Fierce Guardianship, Obsessive Stitcher, and Unearth over Basalt Monolith, Demonic Tutor, Mana Drain, Notion Thief, Court of Cunning, Academy Ruins, and Forbid.
