Cackling Counterpart


Put a token onto the battlefield that's a copy of target creature you control.

Flashback (You may cast this card from your graveyard for its flashback cost. Then exile it.)

12/10 on this set all around, I cannot remember the last time a set felt this exciting and fresh! The story was pretty clumsy, with a vague "prophecy" just basically thrown at Ral at the very end, but was otherwise nice.

The Offspring mechanic is my favorite mechanic in a while! Really really sad that the Jeskai commander got it cause it feels like such a perfect fit for Bant tokens and lil guys type strats but such is the crumbling cookie. ):

Surprising no one I agree with Crow_Umbra- the most exciting mechanic is the raccoons! I think Expend feels new, and very flavorful for RG being colors that can produce extra mana, and it fills a whole new role for similar cards in the future that has been unexplored thus far.

Last thing I'll say is I have seen quite a few complaints online about the new tokens with mana costs and.... As someone who loves to make token copies of stuff this is nothing new and has been happening since Cackling Counterpart and even earlier cards before it. Seems like such a weird gripe to me?

Ashmkiz, Giver of Form

Legendary Creature - Angel Ooze Elemental


You may have Ashmkiz, Giver of Forms enter the battlefield as a copy of any target creature except it has Ashmkiz's other abilities.

Whenever a creature token enters the battlefield, you gain one life.

: Populate. Activate this ability only once each turn.


"Ashmkiz is a child of the leylines, they are pure life and pure mana. Around them, the world is as transient as Ashmkiz itself."

If anyone has been here for a while and is seeing my umpteenth version of a bant populate commander, I'm sorry but I will never stop lol. The blue in their color identity operates as a clone but it also gives you much more power/flexibility when using cards like Cackling Counterpart which make token copies of your own creatures. I want a commander like this so bad but I don't think WOTC will ever give me one ):

ETB then copies a nonland permanent? I don’t think I’ve seen those myself. If they exist I’d like to see because I still use Cackling Counterpart and that other Sorcery? It’s from Ravnica Allegiance I think.

Andramalech on Shifty Crabs!

Hey Squee_Spirit_Guide! I've actually had a deck like this put together for quite some time! I would love your feedback on it, and I have definitely been caught calling it 'Crabshift' before or even 'Hedronshift'.

For me, I developed this build because of what I had seen from Scapeshift builds that used typical Valakut combo or Primeval Titan, except I was in love (and have always been!) With crabs. Specifically Hedron Crab.

Would love to hear your thoughts on it as I lean solely into the crabs doing my heavy lifting, a lot of my deck looks like a hyper-meta mono blue mill deck.

Another variant I had put together uses Renegade Doppelganger, Artisan of Forms, and Quasiduplicate and Cackling Counterpart to 'Shadow Clone Jutsu' my crabs.

CamraMaan on Does Dress Down affect creatures …

Hopefully I can still get a response on this, since it's been a month, but what if Dress Down resolves before Cackling Counterpart? Will that affect how, say, Metallic Mimic gets copied by Cackling Counterpart...? It seems like losing all abilities before a creature gets copied would entail the copy having none of those abilities...? But I can see how this might not change anything either.

Similarly, say Dress Down is cast in response to Aeve, Progenitor Ooze being cast, after a storm brew? My assumption is that the storm trigger will still happen (on cast), creating a bunch of copies of Aeve on the stack, but they will 1) enter with no extra +1/+1 counters, and more importantly, 2) they will all copy the Legendary type, and therefore all but one will have to go...?

Thanks for any help! :)

Cackling Counterpart unfortunately won’t work with Geist of Saint Traft as that’s a Legendary permanent. You can cast it, true, but one will then go to the graveyard. It would work fine on non-Legendary ghosties, although at 3 mana a pop you’d have to choose a spirit with high return value to make it worth the cost. As for Mana Leak, it’s certainly viable to run accompanying control spells but since spirits typically have control effects built in, Disenchant is a decent sideboard card.
