Mimic Vat


Imprint — Whenever a nontoken creature is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, you may exile that card. If you do return each other card exiled with Mimic Vat to its owner's graveyard.

, : Create a token that's a copy of the exiled card. It gains haste. Exile it at the beginning of the next end step.

@ HatchMichael18 Thanks for your comment. those are good suggestions but unfortunately Mindcrank and Mimic Vat are not Pauper legal

Tortured Existence is already in the list ;)

@ LightEntropy Thank you! Fleshbag Marauder and Exquisite Huntmaster passed the try-outs successfully and are now on the team! :) Regenerate isn't quiet what i want my creatures to do since i am usually happy to put them in my graveyard. The regenerate ability doesn't synergize very well with syr konrad's ability

i like your deck i would put in

Mimic Vat because cards hit the grave and mimic vat triggers for each creature separately taking one and putting one creature on and out of the graveyard


Tortured Existence because double trigger recursion


Mindcrank because as your making your opponents loose life that'll mill that much for each creature milled this way grim trigger and do it again till theres no creatures milled

hope i was helpfull :)

Progenitor Mimic, Mimic Vat or Helm of the Host would give you more Oozes to sac.

I would trade out the Wayfarer's Bauble for Kodama's Reach. Since you have only one (or maybe zero) artifacts, you should have at least one Artifact wipe spell.

@dacardgabo Sheoldred, the Apocalypse and Phyrexian Obliterator are two that I've been leaning towards putting in (or back in when it comes to the Phyrexian Obliterator). My current edge cards are Yahenni, Undying Partisan (just kinda falls short of the other 2 tbh), Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon (they generally cause a lot of hate to be directed towards me even tho I love skippy to death), Torment of Hailfire (just a stale way to win due to how common of a wincon it is for black), Praetor's Grasp (it's fun and stayed in since I cracked a foil back in the day, but it's hard to use on spelltable and ppl generally just don't like u taking things. Note, you can exile a combo card even if you never plan on using it), and the tutors Beseech the Queen and Grim Tutor (70% of the time, they just find land or a targeting permanent, but I would rather them just be better draw spells). I just haven't found anything personally interesting enough to put in for them yet.

Profane Command's last ability allows you to target multiple creatures to kill with Horobi, Death's Wail similar to how Touch of Darkness and Cauldron of Souls work, but requires mana for each target. The third ability gives you a way to get around indestructible. The other two options are more niche and game state specific, but are still nice modes to throw onto a card that already fits the game plan.

Necromancy is a general good-stuff card. It targets things in the graveyard so it won't kill them with Horobi, Death's Wail (as they are already dead when the target happens, and just become attached when they enter the battlefield. Similar to how Gift of Doom can be attached to Horobi, Death's Wail if you morph it). I generally just play it if I wanna bring back something big for value (like Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni) or flash it in to grab a sneaky blocker.

Darksteel Ingot is decent because my friends like to just blow everything up. There's a lot of Vandalblasts, Bane of Progresses, Aura Shards, etc. But Relic of Legends is perfectly fine as the second ability doesn't actually target what it taps. And you have it right, it is still a mana ability, so you can use it at any time you would have priority. Do note that the ability is coming from the Relic of Legends itself, so you can tap a creature with summoning sickness for it too.

Lol, I'm glad other ppl are using Mimic Vat. It was always a pet card of mine. Super fun when you can throw a Phyrexian Metamorph under it. Or cheat the trigger by ending the turn with Sundial of the Infinite so you can keep the token.

Virlym You are the king!! I have added Sheoldred, the Apocalypse in place of Profane Command- it works well and especially with Necromancy, but I am adding back the Profane Command in place of Necromancy- Necromancy kills with or targeting Horobi, Death's Wail (I think?) and I haven't had consistency with pulling anything from my opponent's graveyards- while Profane Command has a lot more utility the way I've played. What do you usually flash/play Necromancy for?

I'm not sure if your table runs a lot of artifact destruction, but I took out Darksteel Ingot and swapped in Relic of Legends- being able to leave Horobi, Death's Wail or Sheoldred, the Apocalypse untapped and then used as a mana resource during other player's turns has led to some interesting and sneaky opportunities for me (unless I have it wrong and you can't use the creature mana ability as an instant?).

I love the lack of infinite combos in this deck, and I thnk Mikaeus, the Unhallowed offers so much dynamic to that gamestyle, I'll be really curious what you would swap him for... he does not play well with opponent's Mimic Vats I've found :,)

well first things first im annoyed that i forgot about the existence of Silverbluff Bridge when i was building this deck lol so thanks for that reminder.

I think you and I are on our own island when it comes to Coveted Jewel... i also liked that card and though it looked fun/neat but the internet/forums said it was the first thing to cut because its bad to encourage people attacking you... idk i think its neat and am open to putting it back in.... i also like Scrabbling Claws too; I only cut it because it is a unique effect compared to the other 99 cards.... and Mirrorworks/Mimic Vat were also just tough things i cut for this prototype list... i woulnt be surprised or offended if they found there way back in here.

Just took a quick look at the base precon list, you've taken out a couple cards that are pretty fun.

Coveted Jewel is one. Gives some intense draw and can be shared around the table. Can always get it back if you swing

Endless Atlas Looks decent once you up your basic count. Generally with an Izzet deck you want to leave a lot of mana open for counterspells and interaction on your opponent's turn. This is a good way to convert that into draw if you don't do interaction

Mimic Vat is very good. Reviving creatures is great and it snuffs any stealing effects that happen when a card hits the graveyard (Looking at you Marchesa, the Black Rose)

Mirrorworks is 10/10

Prototype Portal is also pretty good.

Scrabbling Claws Targeted graveyard removal for 1 mana? yes please. Plus, if you make copies you can exile many cards a turn

Looks like you've taken out a lot of creature-copying cards. I would slot those back in if I were you. It'll help a ton to have extra bodies/copies of artifacts to tap later for mana instead of a few extra mana rocks.

I think you may want to go back to basics and rethink your strategy with this deck. Looks like the precon is very creature-focussed and you've removed a lot of interaction with that focus. Creatures are where artifact decks shine! Artifact cloning is your friend with this sort of deck, but make sure you have decent creatures to clone.

carpecanum on Riku of two reflections budget

Ravenform and a couple more Foretell cards maybe. Cheaper to cast = cheaper for Riku to copy.

Infinite Reflection is a wincon with Biovisionary

Mimic Vat maybe
