Irenicus's Vile Duplication


Create a token that's a copy of target creature you control, except the token has flying and isn't legendary if that creature is legendary.

Spark Double, Sakashima the Impostor, Sakashima of a Thousand Faces, and Irenicus's Vile Duplication can copy Queza so you can double the pain.

Here are some other cards you might consider: Well of Lost Dreams, Skirge Familiar, Dawn of Hope, Marauding Blight-Priest, Cliffhaven Vampire, Epicure of Blood, Vizkopa Guildmage

Also heads up that Hullbreacher is banned but maybe your playgroup is cool with it.

Hey there,

So, I'm building a deck with Jared Carthalion as the commander and Luxior, Giada's Gift in the 99. When equiped on my commander, he will be a creature and retains the pw abilities. If I copy Jared with something like Irenicus's Vile Duplication will the copy keep the pw abilities as well? And also, will the copy die, since it doesn't have power and toughness?

@ shock7123: thank you very much!

torbran is out then :( i guess i will just add Irenicus's Vile Duplication instead to simply copy gyrson. i like the fact that it is a sorcery over a creature, so lots of my pingers can untap/trigger again when i play it.

Nice build! What do you think of Ruinous Intrusion? Stealth Mission could also be good to push some damage through.

I'm not sure if Irenicus's Vile Duplication is worth it here - most of your creatures don't even cost that much.

Yes definitely! Both of the lands would fit the restrictions I placed on myself. You can also add gates and other duel lands that come in tapped. I just put in a basic land set to figure out the ratio. I get a lot of heat from one of my play groups for always running a $500+ land base in all my decks. I have never made a deck using just basic lands and figured it would be fun!

Now with Rite of Replication while I do love that card after playing the deck a few times I can tell you I have never came close to hitting 9 mana to make it effective. Instead I think for a $5 "splurge" card (laughing as I type that) Irenicus's Vile Duplication is a better choice. Using it to clone my commander, doubling the mill effect while protecting and not stalling the deck just in case one of them gets yeeted off the board.

Hello! I've been playing Ghyrson as an aggro deck, too, and it's an absolute blast (surprisingly explosive). Love that you included Notorious Throng! It's a real powerhouse in here that I don't see included often.

My list is similar to yours, but I go all in on the tokens going wide strat instead of the Edric style:

Some other hidden gems that have worked wonders for me that look like they'd feel right at home in your list are Zurzoth, Chaos Rider and Irenicus's Vile Duplication. The devils really get out of hand quickly and being able to copy Ghyrson is just insanity (you can even copy the copy)!

You have two Irenicus's Vile Duplication listed. What would you put in there instead?

Anointed Procession is a good alternative to Doubling Season! Lean into those token shenanigans! A bit pricey though...

Copies and clones can let you get more ETB triggers, and some can copy your general for more triggers. Multiple generals means multiple attack triggers and each one gives you extra votes!
- Sakashima the Impostor
- Sakashima of a Thousand Faces
- Helm of the Host
- Spark Double
- Irenicus's Vile Duplication (can't flicker it, but still another copy of your general!)

Sorry for all the pricey suggestions though...
