If you're trying to cut cards from the maybeboard, I'd say cut Identity Thief Voidstone Gargoyle Aether Tunnel Aqueous Form and Protective Bubble. The idea with this deck seems like it should be to swarm with tokens. So, you shouldn't need any individual protections or buffs for your creatures.

I have a question about Mairsil, the Pretender. I know that if he leaves the battlefield for any reason and then returns he still sees cards that were exiled the previous time(s) his ETB triggers happen, such as blinking him with Identity Thief. My question is, if I copy him with something like Clone, the legend rule kicks in and I have to sacrifice one of them, but since the ETB triggers still happen, will Mairsil see cards exiled with the copy? Thanks in advance.

Take out: Body Double, Diluvian Primordial, Frost Titan, Identity Thief, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir (cuz screw Teferi), Supplant Form, Back from the Brink, Volition Reins, Chromatic Lantern (cuz reasons).

Yeah so obviously you need to take out some more cards, especially to draw some cards cuz you don't have enough of that but here's a start

I love the intention behind this. I really wanna see that karaoke. One important point: As far as I know, EDHrec doesn't include data from tappedout, so uploading lists here will only help in providing awesome lists, but it won't count towards the 600.

Now to the topic:

Clones seems the way to go indeed. Helm of the Host is interesting for Alirios, as are Followed Footsteps and maybe Clone Legion. Also: Infinite Reflection, Minion Reflector, Mirror Mockery, Stolen Identity, Zndrsplt's Judgment. And permanent flicker sources should be useful, as well: Conjurer's Closet, Deadeye Navigator, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling. Oh, and if there ever was a deck to include Identity Thief, this is it.

Oh, btw, much easier combo to understand than Teshar: Identity Thief allows you to take infinite combat steps by copying Medomai the Ageless !

I feel like this absolutely needs Identity Thief and a Delirium package. However, I think that this is more just a flavor thing, so I’ll say the above, Dark Impostor , Dimir Doppelganger , Arcane Adaptation , and the classic Bogbrew Witch , Festering Newt , and Bubbling Cauldron package. Laboratory Maniac is super flavorful as well.

But since you look to be going with some heavy black synergies... have you considered The Haunt of Hightower as a commander? It’s definitely, imo, the coolest Halloween-themed commander, being both super cool and very spooky. Still, I understand if you have an attachment to the Reaper King after so long.
