Mimic Vat Discussion

Perhaps Corpse Connoisseur and Gravebreaker Lamia? These could be neat too: Hell's Caretaker, Whisper, Blood Liturgist, Cauldron of Souls, Requiem Angel, Nim Devourer, Black Market, Mimic Vat (this one is neat with Tormod. the vat takes the creature from grave to exile, triggering Tormod. so you could imprint every creature of yours that dies to make that many zombies)

Fable of Wolf and Owl is out of your color identity.

I would cut Branchloft Pathway  Flip, 11 forests and 21 plains (35 lands). (Planeswalkers) both Ajani's and Elspeth. (Artifacts) Wolfrider's saddle and Coat of Arms. (Enchantments) Felidar Retreat, Howlpack Resurgence and Primal Vigor. You have a lot of cutting to do.

Mimic Vat, Soul Foundry etc could replace a bunch of your creatures.

If your boss is threated some blinking cards would protect him and pop in another wolf token ETB

With so few artifacts you may want to ditch them all and put in one or two artifact wipes

If you add Mirror Entity your creatures would get boosts from wolf and elf effects

One of my all-time favorite creatures would have to be Coretapper. Tap him, add a charge counter. Sac him, add two charge counters. Throw him into a Mimic Vat, and suddenly whatever artifact you have that requires removing 3 charge counters can be done once a turn, every turn for 3 mana! Destroy target permanent(Lux Cannon)? Pay 3 mana. Create a 9/9 Golem(Titan Forge)? Pay 3 mana. Take an extra turn(Magistrate's Scepter)? Pay 3 mana! Honestly, whenever I see decks that want charge counters that aren't running Coretapper, it boggles my mind!

dragonstryke58 on Encore question

As the populated token was not created by the Encore ability, the populated token will not be sacrificed at the beginning of the next end step. Also, the populated token will not have haste (in case you were wondering).

To better illustrate this example, if you populated tokens created by Mimic Vat, you will not have to exile them at the beginning of the next end step.

On the other hand, tokens created by the replacement effect of token doublers like Doubling Season are still technically created by the Encore ability, so the extra tokens will be sacrificed.

+1 my guy!

I really like ghired. A 5 mana 10/10 is a lot of fun in commander! There are a few populate tricks you could lean in to if you like the Mimic Vat effects like: Feldon of the Third Path, Seance, Stone Idol Trap, Zektar Shrine Expedition, Angelic Favor... were my favorites.

I would try to lower the curve and play some more ramp. The more you consistently play ghired, the happier you'll be.


-1Song of the Worldsoul... slow

-1Courage in Crisis... proliferate wut

-1Cryptolith Rite... ramp is better... or play Druids' Repository

-1Colossal Majesty... slow... < Life's Legacy/Return of the Wildspeaker

-1Beastmaster Ascension... slow

-1Tendershoot Dryad... great card, but it has little synergy when you already make so many other tokens
