Cackling Counterpart Discussion

golgarigirl on R/B Brudiclad Artifacts and Tokens

Brudiclad needs 2 things to function token-wise: Lots of tokens, and good tokens (usually token creatures). You want a lot of tokens that can then become your good tokens. Bear this in mind when making cuts and additions.

I'm seeing your proportions of your deck are a little skewed. Your land is very light...even the most competitive and low-curve decks have more mana than you're running. I would start with about 35-37 lands depending on how our final average CMC and included mana rocks look.

Remember your core strategy: you want tokens. You have so many planeswalkers (and a few other cards like It That Betrays ) that don't help that. Those are the first things I'd cut to make more useful tokens. Check out cards that allow you to 'turn' non-tokens into tokens you can use. Things like Cackling Counterpart and/or Feldon of the Third Path .

Defending yourself is also important, so more removal...counterspells, removal such as Pongify and Chaos Warp , and bounce spells such as Perplexing Test might be helpful.

Your deck needs a few more cards to boot. A commander deck has 100 cards in it, including your commander.

Final note: You cannot play Mishra, Artificer Prodigy in this deck...Bruidclad does not have black mana in it's identity.

It will also help people make suggestions for your deck if you move the list out of the Maybeboard and into the 'main' part of the deck, so we can look at mana curve, etc.

Thank you for the suggestions seshiro_of_the_orochi, I appreciate them. Mirror Match has some silly potential as like a one-sided board wipe. I haven't seen that one before, so I'll keep it on my maybe-board.

I do have a copy of Spitting Image , since I did by the Quandrix pre-con, then slotted in everything else I already had in my collection to fill it out. Spitting Image is a bit hefty on the cmc for its effect, when something like Quasiduplicate , Cackling Counterpart , or Theoretical Duplication have similar effects for half the cmc, but different restrictions. I'll keep it in consideration.

Im currently working on an "Infinite Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger " Deck.. My premise is.. i do what i can to get Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger out, and follow up by attaching Helm of the Host to him.. Next turn assuming he is alive, i move to combat and Helm of the Host does its thing and creates a non Legendary token creature of Ulamog (Which doesnt get exiled by the way, hence why i think this might work)..

Back to the question at hand.. If i use a Cackling Counterpart , Mirrorpool , or Mirage Mirror (... ect.), am i allowed to copy the token'd version of Ulamog?

Could Vela the Night-Clad have "Tier 3: High Power" potential? She wins the game pretty easily with the Naru Meha, Master Wizard + Cackling Counterpart combo.

That Vela costs 6 definitely keeps her out of "Tier 2: Fringe Competetive", but that she is a win-con in the command zone for multiple combo types seems decent.

Inferno323 on I don't know...IZZET KRARK TRIBAL?

Hey, I brewed a similar deck! Here's my list if you wanna look at it for ideas! You've already reminded me of a card that I think would be a good fit for it! One note about your above comment though, if you've only got Krark and Sakashima out and cast Cackling Counterpart and win one of the two flips, you would only get one copy of Krark since the original card is put back into your hand and one copy is made.
