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.)

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.

DocHostile, this is a great deck! You’ve a lot of great creature cards that will make this super effective no matter what environment you’re playing in.

A card that works really well in my I See Dead People (Spirit Token Deck) is Cackling Counterpart. With it, you’d be able to make a copy of any of the great creature cards you have (imagine getting another Geist of Saint Traft on the battlefield and really laying on the hurt). Plus, it has flashback, so you can do it again!

The only other suggestion I would make would be to add some good counters. I see you have Disenchant on your sideboard, but I’m wondering if completely canceling out a spell with something like Mana Leak would make sure the card you opponent plays doesn’t even hit the battlefield.

Best of luck playing with this deck! I hope it wins you some good games!

Blanket of Snow

Snow Enchantment - Aura

Enchant creature

Enchanted creature is snow.

Enchanted creature gets +1/+1 for each basic snow land you control.

Make either a Cackling Counterpart or a Clone for lands

Rhadamanthus on Does Dress Down affect creatures …

The token will be a full copy of Arcanis and will regain all of its abilities when Dress Down leaves the battlefield. A copy effect copies everything written on the original, and doesn't take into account any other effect that's currently changing the characteristics of the original (unless those changes were created by another copy effect).

However, your opponent now has two Legendary permanents with the same name. Unless there's something else special going on (i.e. Mirror Gallery), they will have to get rid of one of them after Cackling Counterpart resolves.
