Duplicant

Artifact Creature — Shapeshifter

Imprint — When Duplicant enters the battlefield, you may exile target nontoken creature. (The exiled card is imprinted on this artifact.)

As long as a card exiled with Duplicant is a creature card, Duplicant has the power, toughness, and creature types of the last creature card exiled with duplicant. It's still a Shapeshifter.

artaud21 on Azusa goes Turbo(land)

Boundless Realms - This spell can only find basics which are not that plenty (especially when drained with fetches), they ETB tapped and overall it's not I'm focused on. Using it for Scute or Avenger is just overkill as I only need to crack a fetch 3 times to get 64 insects or 6/7 plants to finish the game. I'd rather play Reshape the Earth which has game ending potential on its own (Field of the Dead + 9 lands) even if it costs 2 more mana.

Scapeshift - I'm considering this but I would need to find room for mass-land returners (World Shaper) to make it more of the ramp spell than quality one. Azusa with Crucible effect may not be enough to return all sacced lands in short period. Obviously would be much better with Cradle which I don't possess though.

I've been playing Genesis Wave for a long time with great success (Turn 4-5 wins happened) and it was hard decision to cut it but I need to keep big-spells count as low as possible especially I can play combo now. As for Sol Ring I'd rather use Mana Crypt for T1 Azusa but still it gets negated by Ouphe, destroyed by Bane and doesn't trigger landfall effects.

Rude Awakening - I don't see it as part of the combo as it requires 3 parts (only 2 can be tutored for) and 11+ mana to run (which is a lot) and there are cheaper effects to untap lands. As for wincon it doesn't generate that much pressure as even 20 2/2 land-creatures can only kill one player and I'm not eager to lose any of my lands in combat.

Petrified Field - I did run it for a long time but needed to cut less important utility lands for Forests as I found myself color-hungry too many times.

Regal Force - it's definitely a powerhouse but I need to keep rigor in amount of cards in each mana slot. CMC 7 has 3 creature slots already occupied by Avenger (wincon), Hulk (combo) and Wurm (pet card). It's definitely viable for people not fond of Diune series (Shai-Hulud) or Wurms as a species ;)

Garruk, Primal Hunter - I did play him back in a days but I prefer cheaper (Life's Legacy) or repeatable (Greater Good) effects for card draw (even if I lose a creature in a process). Its ability can be weakened by killing biggest creature and Return of the Wildspeaker is better anyway.

Castle Garenbrig - it's good indeed except for occassions when I don't have Forest or a fetch in my starting hand which happens from time to time. It's obviously better with mana doublers but can be ok in my build as well. I don't have it currently but I will and test it.

Sensei's Divining Top - I've tested it already. Sure it ordered my top for Augur and friends but fetches "do" it anyway and sometimes I wished it way another card - that could ramp me for instance. I'd rather play Winding Way than it.

Elvish Aberration - I'm currently testing it. The thing is it can be cycled Turn 2 to keep the momentum for next turn Azusa and can produce infinite mana with Ashaya + Quirion combo. The second one didn't happen yet but it's possible. Anyway this slot is still interchangeable as there are so many 6 CMC creatures to use in a deck that finding a perfect one is hard. It can be Duplicant, Ulvenwald Hydra, Kogla, Sweet-Gum Recluse or even Orchard Strider as long as it won't clog a hand and can be tutor target in some occassions.

Panglacial Wurm - It's a pet card of mine and effective one to boot. Combat trick/End Step fatty is one option but more often than not it's used for power-matter draw effects. Mana flood is not that scary when you can cast it from library by cracking a fetch. Bonus points for Shai-Hulud esque.

Shigeki, Jukai Visionary - it's perfect T2 play before T3 Azusa and can be used right after dropping 2 bonus lands to ramp. Channel ability is super useful even if little costly.

I would see the Dross Scorpion route as 3 card combo, in an Osgir, the Reconstructor deck youre gonna have an artifact in your yard and on the battlefield, even its only an Ancient Den

so any ETB artifact gives you infinite value, even a Skyscanner, Ichor Wellspring or similar ones draw you infinite cards, Solemn Simulacrum draws you infinite Cards and gets all your basics, Meteor Golem/Duplicant destroys/exiles every other non-land permanent/creature, Myr Battlesphere makes infinite 1/1 Myrs, Triplicate Titan/Phyrexian Triniform/Wurmcoil Engine makes infinite larger tokens

So its very hard to imagine a situation where you assemble this combo and not win on the spot or at least get such an advantage, that your not gonna loose as long as nobody can disrupt it, especially considering that this deck has several ways to give its creatures/artifacts haste

of course its not the main win condition, but its three pieces that are good for the deck anyway, that go infinite together, which is very nice

Nice! Brago is a really fun commander. My buddy has a Brago EDH and I suggested Duplicant to him for it.

Not sure if it would fit for yours and may be too expensive at 6 CMC but exiling a creature each time he enters and not returning them when he leaves might make him worth it.

Also, I see Duplicant and Galecaster Colossus on your maybeboard. As someone who might play against this I really don't want those cards in your deck, which means you should probably include them. I can pretty much shut down an entire game single-handedly in my Wizards deck with Colossus, but he'd be great with a wizard commander too. So much value, and you get him for free!

Also, in the whole counterspell bit, I almost forgot about Lazotep Plating, which is the poor man's version of Heroic Intervention. It's great and will protect all of your stuff from targeted removal for a turn.

Very well thought out primer. Was really surprised to see that it was your first! The background and fonts look nice, too. Could never figure out how to get that to work properly. The deck looks great. I'm always glad to see another Rebbec/Glacian deck pop up on here. I do have a lot of recommendations and insight from the games I've played with my own Rebbec/Glacian deck.

(Side note before I get distracted - Blind Obedience has mono white color identity. The black in the reminder text does NOT count towards it's color identity.)

Cards I'd definitely recommend -

Mycosynth Lattice - Turns ALL permanents into artifacts. Perfect for Glacian. I know you said that you're mainly a budget player and that this card is in the "upgrades and future" tab, but this one shoudl definitely be near the top of that list. It's INSANELY good in this deck. Such a high price tag, though. :\ Smothering Tithe is in the same boat.

Liquimetal Torque and Liquimetal Coating - Both provide instant speed protection with Rebbec. Someone tries to cast Doom Blade on her or Glacian (or anyone else)? Tap either of these and they can become an artifact and gain Rebbec's protection.

A few more removal spells would probably be a good idea as well, it's something that my own deck struggles with as well. Dispatch is great. Dispeller's Capsule is removal and also an artifact. Duplicant and Steel Hellkite are both removal that also fill the missing 6 CMC slot in your mana curve.

There are a few tutors in that aren't super overpriced that might be worth looking into. Idyllic Tutor can help find Mechanized Production or Mirrodin Besieged. Fabricate can let you search for any artifact. Any of the artifact mage cards like Trinket Mage, Tribute Mage and Trophy Mage are also worth mentioning. They're a bit limited but they should all be relatively cheap. Another great one I've gotten a lot of use out of is Arcum Dagsson. You can sacrifice an artifact at instant speed to search up another one. Sac a myr token for Darksteel Forge? Oh yes. It also serves as protection with Rebbec as you can sac an artifact to search up one with a specific CMC (er... MV. Never gonna get used to that) that you may happen to need protection from at the time. He serves a similar role to Master Transmuter who I see in the maybeboard.

A special shout out goes to Geode Golem. With the enough artifacts and the protection that Rebbec gives, it should be pretty easy to get him to connect so you can cast Glacian for FREE!

If you wanted to go the "turn all my artifacts sideways at people" route, cards like Sakashima's Will and Masterful Replication work wonders with creatures like Filigree Attendant or Darksteel Juggernaut and Shambling Suit. On the other hand, Rise and Shine from MH2 just animates and tosses counters on things. Much simpler and can achieve the same result of smashed face! I have an Urza, Lord High Artificer deck that focuses on this exact gameplan.

Vedalken Archmage and Endless Atlas are two great card draw engines. One with the Machine is also great but you need something big on the field to really capitalize on it. I see that you have Esper Sentinel in the maybeboard and I can't for the life of me figure out why I didn't add it into my own deck. I just buylisted it a week or two ago. :(

I think that's all I have for now. I've linked my deck below. Feel free to check it out and see if any other ideas pop out at you from there. I'm excited for Kamigawa Neon Dynasty as it seems to have a pretty good artifact theme going on but I have a feeling that The Brother's War set at the end of the year is gonna be HUGE for Rebbec/Glacian!

Duplicant could do well here, essentially an exile with a creature as a bonus :]
