Metallic Mimic Discussion

MagicMarc on Monomanamaniac's Infinite elves

I agree with some of the cuts you already did that were suggested by abby315 and Keqing420. I also think you don't need Elvish Champion instead of Ezuri, Renegade Leader. I believe Ezuri is more reliably going to finish games over the champion. Beast Whisperer is part of the deck's card advantage and card playing engine so should stay in the deck without a big overhaul of the deck. Besides being a replacement for Glimpse of Nature in the deck since glimpse isnt Modern legal.

Some more cuts I feel could happen are; Deleting Elvish Promenade. Both Collected Company or Chord of Calling would be better in this deck than the promenade. I understand that the copies of Primal Surge fulfills what either of those might provide for this deck. But they are both way better than the promenade because they can get you your combo pieces. I would consider replacing it maybe with Turntimber Symbiosis  Flip if you don't want to play either CoCo or Chord. Partly due to the fact it still puts brakes on your Surges and can serve as a land in a pinch. (Way not needed, I know). It gets more utility elves out like Coco and Chord so would make your gameplay more consistent. Or maybe Lead the Stampede instead?

I also agree that I would also cut the Fauna Shaman until you can get Craterhoof Behemoth. Without the behemoth, you just dont need anything else that badly to tutor up you won't be able to find with surge or your draw engine.

Also, I don't see any value from the copies of Elvish Clancaller. Your deck is more combo and going wide than needing anthem effects. It's activated ability costs way too much for just getting another clancaller. I would cut all 4 and see if your decks suffers at all. Or leave the fauna shamans and promenades and just cut those. Or replace them with copies of Elvish Champion even.

You also dont need anything in your maybe board except maybe Imperious Perfect. Though I would treat that as a slightly better card than the clancallers and wouldnt put them in the deck either. Helix Pinnacle is just picking a different win condition than the Ezuri/possible behemoth route. Metallic Mimic actually provides nothing the deck needs at all.

why so many wipes? with so many permanents what are they good for? just because Bishop of Wings would leave a few Spirits? it can't be that.

and what are the tutors for?

also what about Daxos, Blessed by the Sun or Metallic Mimic?

also don't you want Felidar Sovereign instead of Test of Endurance?

Nice deck on a budget, really good job keeping your avg. cmc down. I do have a few suggestions and I'll try to keep it budget(ish) friendly.

Must Have: Feed the Swarm should allow you to drop Meteor Golem. I know Chaos Warp/Feed the Swarm aren't as easily reusable but you should be prioritizing removing problematic enchantments like Solemnity or Rest in Peace anyways.

Etb/death trigger abuse: Metallic Mimic/Vigean Graftmage abuses your meanest etb/death trigger on everyone's turn instead of once per round. Just sac Mimic to rename the creature type if needed.

Attack Away From Throne: Drana, Liberator of Malakir allows you to attack who you need to when you need to. Thanks to first strike, the rest of your team will get their counters before regular combat damage.

Surprise: Legion Loyalist is a stud here thanks to haste. Only for a surprise first strike, trample, and tokens can't block for my whole team is amazing. Just don't play him like a typical 1 drop but rather with the goal of activating Battalion that turn.

Finisher: Jokulhaups will clear out everything except enchantments while your creatures all come back at the end of turn to wreck face. It can be a dick move but it'll end games.

Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's one of the top rated Marchesa lists on this site, it has a huge maybeboard to help people, and there's also over 100 comments to sift through for more ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Got 99 Upvotes And A Bitch Ain't One - Marchesa

Have you considered more changelings to help fill out your tribe (there's not many good ones, but Taurean Mauler and Adaptive Automaton might work well)? Adaptive Automaton, too, and maybe Metallic Mimic. Aggravated Assault goes infinite with five dwarves and any Vehicle (or opponent you can attack with no consequences), and Imperial Recruiter seems pretty awesome even if it's not a dwarf.

This might seem odd, but have you considered Helm of the Host here? Even tapping two or three dwarves offsets the high cost, once you have a second Magda, and it seems like silly things could happen when you get MULTIPLE treasures per tapped dwarf. Smuggler's Copter also seems like a must, are there other vehicles that you think would fit? :)

Even if Rick, Steadfast Leader is available as a normal drop, that card is not legal on all formats. Also, Thalia, Heretic Cathar can go in the sideboard with Baird, Steward of Argive because you won’t always play against a creature mash Aggro deck. Looks like you’re not worry about the price, maybe add Metallic Mimic? They enter as Humans and they power up other humans.

Vanquisher's Banner Herald's Horn Icon of Ancestry Metallic Mimic

TheRealSpecialK on Ayula, Queen Among Bears Combo?

1 month ago

It does not because the bear will still enter as a 2/2. Ayula, Queen Among Bears says "Whenever another Bear enters the battlefield under your control... put two +1/+1 counter on target bear.' The creature would enter as a 2/2. Because it is a 2/2, Garruk's Uprising won't even trigger because the creature would have to enter as a 4/4. Even if you choose to give the bear the counters, the counters would be placed on the bear after it had entered the battlefield. To get the effect you are looking for, you would have to have something like two Metallic Mimics on the battlefield at the same time. Notice the wording on the mimic: "Each other creature you control of the chosen type enters the battlefield with an additional +1/+1 counter on it." Because this specifies that the creature enters the battle with a counter (as opposed to gaining the counters after it entered) it would have increased power and toughness as it enters, and Garruk's Uprising would trigger.

osiczym, Ward Sliver is a legacy card. This is Modern. I’m not using any of the cards mentioned because the damage increase comes from the outlast abilities and Metallic Mimic. I didn’t use Risk Factor but I have both Collected Company and Adventurous Impulse. And lastly, I don’t follow other people’s way of building their decks, I find other ways to build a deck around a certain archetypes then play test and change the cards to make make it better. Please review the deck list one more time to see how the synergy works.
