CamraMaan on Does Dress Down affect creatures …

5 days ago

Hopefully I can still get a response on this, since it's been a month, but what if Dress Down resolves before Cackling Counterpart? Will that affect how, say, Metallic Mimic gets copied by Cackling Counterpart...? It seems like losing all abilities before a creature gets copied would entail the copy having none of those abilities...? But I can see how this might not change anything either.

Similarly, say Dress Down is cast in response to Aeve, Progenitor Ooze being cast, after a storm brew? My assumption is that the storm trigger will still happen (on cast), creating a bunch of copies of Aeve on the stack, but they will 1) enter with no extra +1/+1 counters, and more importantly, 2) they will all copy the Legendary type, and therefore all but one will have to go...?

Thanks for any help! :)

Metallic Mimic’s always a solid shout for tribal decks, and Usher of the Fallen is a fantastic aggro card, though this deck feels a little too controlling and slow for them perhaps.

I quite like Spectral Sailor here, but you likely don’t need it to be honest. Looks good!

Last_Laugh on Marchesa EDH - To die or not to die

5 days ago

Nice deck but I do have a few suggestions.

Metallic Mimic and Vigean Graftmage will both protect Marchesa whenever she enters or they allow you to abuse any etb/death trigger on everyone's turn instead of once per round. With Metallic Mimic, sac to rename the creature type and abuse your grossest etb/death trigger and with Vigean, it's 2 free sacs every turn (itself + 1 other). Just have it enter first then graft a counter onto the other creature as it enters. These are both especially gross with Kokusho, the Evening Star and/or Gray Merchant of Asphodel. The lifegain seems counterproductive but trust me, it's not... they will end the game without you worrying about your life total at all.

Spark Double feels like it's a custom made card specifically for Marchesa. Like the above cards, it allows you to abuse any etb/death trigger every turn thanks to that automatic +1+1 counter or you copy Marchesa for double dethrone triggers.

Goblin Bombardment is an excellent free sac outlet here that only 2 colors can reliably deal with. It also enables an infinite damage combo with Glen Elendra and Mikaeus (just alternate Glen Elendra entering from Undying then Persist).

Feel free to check out my list for more ideas. It's one of the top rated Marchesa decks on the site with a big maybeboard and over 180 comments to sift through for insight and more ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa to Love Them

In addition to Balaam__’s comments above, I’d recommend four copies of Metallic Mimic, and at least two Masked Vandals in sideboard or mainboard.

LittleMy on Tribal Vampires Help Wanted

1 week ago

I saw another comment say this, but stressing it, Phyrexian Arena can be replaced (and same with Greed). For an enchantment that can be removed, same cost as Necropotence which you have included and doesn't generate nearly the same amount of value? Personally, I'd rather slot in a card like Sign in Blood or Night's Whisper, or for doing double duty, Castle Locthwain (and considering you're Mono Black, having it come in untapped shouldn't be an issue) These also are more on demand, situational impulse draws for when you really need them.

I'm a huge fan of mana doublers, and I personally don't like Extraplanar Lens. While I understand the upside, I can't get past the exiling a land. I think that's too much of a downside. On the flip side, two mana doublers I like, Crypt Ghast and Magus of the Coffers, do double duty as blockers/attackers, and all for more mana, and you keep a land. I see you have Nyx Lotus in your maybe board as well, and I'd even say slot this in over Extraplanar Lens.

While Adaptive Automaton and Metallic Mimic both are decent anthems, they don't offer possible utility like other cards can. Considering you're running a lot of vampires, I'd recommend slotting in two other cards for them. Veinwitch Coven brings back cards from the dead when you gain life, which seems often. Return combo pieces, big threats, or mana helpers. And if you are still concerned about card draw, Champion of Dusk.

You already have a lot of tutors, Brainspoil might be pushing it, unless there's a combo that I am not seeing. To be more dynamic, I'd recommend Go for the Throat or Doom Blade depending on your meta. Having cheap removal at instant speed can be the difference in a game.

Charcoal Diamond I'd highly recommend switching out for Arcane Signet as this does not come in to play tapped and can be used immediately.

Door of Destinies or Coat of Arms I'd also highly recommend. They're fantastic tribal anthems and I'd argue puts in more work than Herald's Horn. I say that because I like the philosophy of, "the best healing is damage" or "more damage, less dead" (and also Coat of Arms with a full board and constant threat replacement with Veinwitch Coven is terrifying)

Hope this helps!

Lookin' good! Assuming this is a Commander deck, you can change the format in the edit page - makes it easier for people to find and interact with. Also lets you set a creature as your Commander!

Taurean Mauler, Door of Destinies and Metallic Mimic would be my initial thoughts for additions.

Polaris on Copying a Clone

3 weeks ago

It is doable, though a bit harder. Clone is a may ability; you can choose to have it just come in as Clone. It will immediately die, of course, if you don't have some anthem effect to boost its toughness, but it will still trigger Riku to make a token that can enter as any creature. If you do have an anthem effect (like Metallic Mimic naming Shapeshifter), your original could even stay on the battlefield, at which point you could use kicked Rite of Replication to make five copies of it that could enter play as whatever you wanted.
