Body Double

Creature — Shapeshifter

You may have Body Double enter the battlefield as a copy of any creature card in a graveyard.

I think you are probably right on cutting some removal. So how do these changes look.

Add: 4 Unmarked Grave 1 The Underworld Cookbook 3 Discovery / Dispersal

Remove: 3 Dismember 3 Esper Sentinel 1 Reveillark 1 Smallpox

Most all the additions are to help with getting hulk in the yard, with cookbook giving me a small amount of flexibility.

The removal decisions were based off mana considerations and the potential non-bo with an early smallpox/sentinel. Reveillark was probably the hardest pull since I do want backup combo pieces, but Body Double gives me the option to use another players graveyard as well.

I am not completely sure of these changes yet, but one thing I have been mulling over is the need for Prismatic Ending. I can't think of anything right now so dangerous outside of a Relic of Progenitus or Tormod's Crypt that I might need to remove. Not to mention that it doesn't progress my gameplan at all.

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.

Volo can be a fun commander. I would probably be running Body Double, despite Clever Impersonator. Also pretty surprised to not see Doubling Season or Parallel Lives.

Thoughts on W/B reanimator with Protean Hulk as a reanimation target? You only need a Body Double , Reveillark and sac outlet in the list to combo out.

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
