Clever Impersonator Discussion

RUST-O on X's and O's

Phyrexian Metamorph, Spark Double and Clever Impersonator would both be good additions here. I don’t know what you would cut for either but they’re awesome. Especially clever since it could hit one of your enchantments to double those effects. Spark double is sick because it hits your commander.

I have been really enjoying Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner her passive ability is great and she comes in with 7 loyalty for 3 mana.

Emergent Ultimatum is a cool one but I don’t know what you could cast for free off that with so many X cards...

Thats all I have. This is a very solid list.

Neotrup on If I play Sakashima of …

Yes, a copy of Myojin of Seeing Winds cast from hand will enter with a Divinity counter, regardless of whether the original has a Divinity Counter. This is true whether you keep both, using a copy like Sakashima of a Thousand Faces or Sakashima the Impostor that lets you keep both, or a regular copy like Clone or Clever Impersonator. Token copies aren't cast, even if the spell that makes them is, so Cackling Counterpart or Spitting Image won't give you the Divinity counter.

Moritte of the Frost: animated Clever Impersonator in the command zone, but only your permanents (but not just your creatures). AFAIK unlike Sakashima the Impostor it does copy the permanent's name, so other legendaries are a no-no.

Captivating Glance seems like it'd be very good here, as the control effect continues to apply even after the glance moves to something else. Custody Battle works similarly. And Fractured Loyalty, which is particularly strong because you can target the enchanted creature with Ardenn's ability to get the creature, then later move fractured loyalty to something else with Ardenn's ability and repeat the process to gain multiple creatures over time.

These might interest you too: Captain's Hook (attach to opp's creature using Ardenn, then pass it along to keep destroying dudes), Assault Suit, Infectious Rage, Steam Vines, Shifting Shadow, Spirit Link, Aurelia, the Warleader, Spark Double, Copy Enchantment, Clever Impersonator

Carmelita on Nicol Bolas the Ravager Control/Combo/Goodstuff

Have you considered Isochron Scepter? You already have several cards that fit it, and it's a key card for several infinite combos, most notably with Dramatic Reversal. I'd recommend cutting Crux of Fate since you don't have many dragons and you already have several board wipes.

Gilded Lotus is a bit slow, I'd recommend replacing it with Arcane Signet. Same for Commander's Sphere, I'd cut that and use Mind Stone instead. Your commander is 4 CMC, so ramping on turn 2 is extremely important.

I can see you're trying to abuse ETB effects, but Ravenous Chupacabra can be a bit underwhelming on it's own. Clever Impersonator has the same CMC, and it can become any nonland permanent on the board.

abby315 that's funny, I vividly remember my tarkir prerelease when I Act of Treasoned my opponent's Rhino, then cast a Clever Impersonator on it, so the copy was hasty and swung for lethal... good times

TotesMcGoats on Wizzardrix (Kwain, Itinerant Meddler)

Thanks OatmealBear! Hope you enjoy it. Not a fan of the stax approach myself. You play it once and everyone hates it and no one has fun and you never play it again.

Not a big fan of Norn's Annex either to be honest. It plays less like Ghostly Prison and more like Hissing Miasma. Hissing Miasma is more of a punisher then a deterrent. No one pays the mana ever cuz its white only, so its just a tax on life, and life is just another resource, especially when you start with 40. Ghostly Prison works because people would rather spend their mana to cast stuff and attack someone else then have to pay mana to attack you since attacking used to be free. Psychologically, it just feels bad, like paying for Rhystic Study or Smothering Tithe. And if they really want to attack you, they still can, and paying 2 life to attack with a big dumb voltron guy is no sweat, so it only really stops big armies, which the other pillowfort cards do better. It also costs 5, which usually means 3 and 4 life which I don't think is worth it for a worse version of Ghostly Prison. And specifically to this deck, don't forget that Kwain doesn't just draw everyone cards, it also gains everyone a bit of life, and that'll start to add up, so people will have the life to spare anyway. So overall my experience with playing it is its just not as good and its better for a punisher deck than group hug, so it always ends up getting cut from my lists. Instead, I've started playing cards like Clever Impersonator, Estrid's Invocation, and Mirrormade as extra copies of other pillowfort cards already in play, but they also have the flexibility to be almost anything else.
