Clever Impersonator Discussion

What’s the intended target for Clever Impersonator? Krasis is a no-go because it’d die on entry, and if you choose a planeswalker, one dies to the legendary rule. That just leaves Prime Titan and your opponents stuff, which feels too narrow a window to be honest.
Similarly, i’m not sure Spark Double is worth it either. While it can target the planeswalkers, you don’t really need extra copies of them in play - it’s just a “win more” strategy.
Your mana curve is faaar too geared towards the 4cmc slot, and I think it would be better served replacing most of those spells with stuff costing 1cmc… you currently have nothing to do turn 1, and that’s usually a terrible place to be in modern (unless you run Chalice of the Void)
24 lands is super low for a ramp deck relying on playing multiple lands per turn. As a comparison, Amulet Titan decks are currently running 32 lands. I think you should look to go up to 28ish at a minimum.

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.

Hello. I have been studying Blink Brago Control for few weeks and I have to tell that I probably have found my place in MTG - I need to build this deck. The job that you had done is so good.. I'm gonna create my deck based on yours. Why ? Because your deck is IMO lacking some essential cards and OFC an UPDATE. Yep... you really need an update. Im casual player, any feedback is very appreciated. So I encourage everybody who is reading this to a discussion.
card draw / card selection
Rhystic Study - Every blue commander should play this, why don't we try - gives consistent draw to get more cards..
Mystic Remora - more draw..
Esper Sentinel - kinda new card in magic - gets consistent draw
Dig Through Time - Powerful because of delve.
Luminous Broodmoth - Mass removal - even more profit! more blinking!
Soulherder - Every blink deck, please. This enables to get more blinking triggers and payoffs at the same time.
Disallow - extended counterspell...
Trickbind - counter triggers sometimes are gold worth.
Dovin's Veto - One of the most powerful counterspells in magic. Guesss what. It's Azorius colors ;)
Path to Exile - classic
Lightning Greaves - protect commander
Linvala, Shield of Sea Gate - lets sacrifice it anytime we need...
Thran Dynamo - IMO really underappreciated mana base card.
Teferi, Master of Time - Isn't this a must-play in an BW deck now?
Teferi, Hero of Dominaria - Isn't it too much mana?

Heya PikaPrince, the answer may be a bit longer than you expected:
Hedron Crab gives me more cardadvantage. With a fetchland it mills me 6 cards each turn if I want to, with any extra land drops even more. I also don’t have to sac and replay it to gain value out of the crab. In addition i can keep a fetchland on the field and crack it right after an opponent used a top of library tutor like worldly, enlightened, mystical, vampiric or other similar effects to mill their freshly tutored card. Stitchers supplier doesn’t give me that flexibility.
Clever Impersonator has ups and downs. On the upside I can copy enchantments and planeswalkers with it while metamorph can’t do that. The downside is that I can’t play it as my artifact for turn like I could with metamorph. However, that rarely is a point anyways since my artifact cast per turn usually is LED anyways. That’s why I prefer impersonator here just for a bit more options with my copy targets.
Hope that helps
