Enchantment — Aura
At the beginning of your upkeep, put a token into play that's a copy of enchanted creature.

Thanks! As for Progenitor Mimic, it was in the first list. However, Clones has the problem of being a "feel bad" card if there is nothing valuable to clone. I've found myself cuttting clones for more impactful cards. Just like Followed Footsteps, Mimic is one of the better clones that can get out of hand. However, I'm not sure if this is what I want to be doing at . Progenitor Mimic is in the conversation, though.

enpc Couldn't agree more, had a lot of those same thoughts myself about how few things can populate AND make a token. The ability needs to be weaker to feel more fair/fun and copying only my creatures is a good start.
The reason I hesitate is because it is a bit of a "steal by making my own copies" deck with clone cards, and making token copies of my clones, or there's a few cards that can make tokens of any creature. (Formoverfunction was right on the money with the Croaking Counterpart reference, also Rite of Replication, Followed Footsteps, and cards like Progenitor Mimic and Theoretical Duplication ) This helps the deck have more randomness/variety/less linear gameplay instead of just playing my own strong pieces and copying them.
Progenitor Mimic was actually the card that originally inspired this whole deck. I am brainstorming ways to make this card a bit more fun and maybe less strong. I like both of your ideas, but I am going to mess around with some other ideas and repost. I want to see if I can keep the populate ability and maybe mess around with Embalm or Encore, maybe life gain when creatures ETB... but keep it bant. Something more fun and maybe less strong- but I wouldn't be surprised to come back to this design though.

KBK7101 I’m glad you like it!! I’ve gotten in a few games with it and it’s definitely a blast to play!
Keiga, the Tide Star was on my original list, and I’m definitely considering slotting it in. Voltron is also a quite viable strategy here, and I am definitely finding a spot for Runechanter's Pike! It works perfectly with the theme and artifact synergies. Thank you for the idea!
The newer cards from Capenna are certainly intriguing, and I like that Extravagant Replication is a better Followed Footsteps, but it’s a bit clunky here. The same is true for most Clones. Blue has a really hard time getting creatures and enchantments OUT of the yard, and once they are milled or killed they’re basically gone for good.
That said, these cards are certainly viable for a Kairi list, and the sheer number of clone effects makes this deck crazy easy to adjust to fit different power levels and themes.

When does Followed Footsteps really ever become relevant? It seems to me like you have so much draw, you should never be out of cards in hand to be able to activate this. If you're in that posistion, I dont think Followed Footsteps is going to help all that much. Looks like a fun build. I also feel like there are better things than Sphinx of Lost Truths that would still be on theme for you.

I wonder if there's a way to abuse Naev?
Vampire Hexmage secures you the means to remove the counters. But Naev's trigger will cause you to both get an extra turn and sacrifice him.
I wonder, in response to his trigger going off, if you bounce him then the ability still resolves but he's in your hand and thus can not be sacrificed, right? So next turn you can drop him again.
All you need is a reliable way to bounce both Vampire Hexmage as well as play Naev. Or, what you could do, is the following:
- Bounce Naev to your hand
- Cast Naev from hand for 7mv
- Upon upkeep, Followed Footsteps on Vampire Hexmage will repeat the cycle
Now all you need is a reliable bounce spell. Isochron Scepter and Run Away Together would likely be best, as you can now slowly bounce the whole board, one painful turn at a time. It's a big setup, sure, but two things:
- You're in Dimir - the two best nonland colors to tutor for.
- It's infinite extra turns. Don't expect it to be so easy.

Spiked Ripsaw: this is very silly (AFAIK chainsaws make poor murder weapons; gore tends to clog up the mechanism)
Markov Purifier: First white vampire. Would making the ability free have been too much?
Old Rutstein: Got some borderline plagiarism for you, stranger

The only worry I have with Helm of Host is someone popping Lynde in response to the equip cost or before you can move into combat. But Sakashima would for sure be worth it, especially if you cast rite of replication targeting a juicy legendary creature.
