Mimic Vat Discussion

RelinquishedAttempts on One Fox Makes a Big Difference

2 hours ago

king-saproling, thank you for suggesting cards for this deck. You are the first and for that I am glad.

However, I don't know how much I want those cards... I addressed Basalt Monolith in the "About Infinite Mana" tab thing saying that I don't want cards that are too cheesy. Anyone could see that Basalt would be very strong, so it's not a very interesting choice for this deck. It's also a card I ran in the first iteration of the deck and it wasn't very fun since the deck isn't very strong nor competitive. Gemstone Array is a very cool card, I personally like storage effects even though they aren't that strong usually, but this deck feels more synergistic when I use tappy stuff, and tappy stuff sounds cool. This deck also has a fair bit of ramp as well. Livio, Oathsworn Sentinel is another cool card, but I think Flickerform or Angel of Condemnation are better and I've already taken out Flickerform. Mimic Vat is really neat and does have an advantage over Osgir, the Reconstructor and Feldon of the Third Path in that you can use opponents' creatures or stop a specific creature from entering the graveyard, but it's less flexible when it comes to choice and I don't know if I need more recursion.

I don't know if it's necessary for me to talk this much, but I felt like it was giving you more respect. If you think your suggestions are good and I just missed why, please tell me. I want to do what's best for this deck, especially since I made it so unfocused despite the investment I put in.

Hey, well done so far with a budget upgrade of the precon.

Meloku the Clouded Mirror would be good here because it can be a repeatable source of tokens for Twincasters as well as a landfall enabler. Pair Meloku with Kodama of the East Tree + a basic land for infinite 1/1 Illusions and infinite landfall at instant speed. Tap a basic land to pay to activate Meloku to return that basic land to your hand and create a 1/1 Illusion token that triggers Kodama. Put that basic land from hand onto the battlefield, tap it to activate Meloku and repeat. When the basic land returns to your hand from Meloku it's a new object that has no connection to the basic land that was previously on the battlefield thus Kodama doesn't recognize it as being put onto the battlefield with it's ability.

Kodama also combos with Rampaging Baloths + Simic Growth Chamber as the land enabler for infinite landfall for infinite 4/4 Beasts since Chamber can return itself back to your hand and Kodama can put it back onto the battlefield to repeat. Fierce Empath can search for Kodama or Rampaging and it's a creature to make a token copy of. Add Garruk's Uprising for a draw engine as well as trample source.


Champion of Lambholt cares about +1/+1 counters and she triggers whenever a creature token is created. She can get big quick which makes all creatures you control unblockable. Pair Lambholt with Spawnwrithe + Twincasters to make an out of control army of Spawnwrithes who when each does combat damage to an opponent makes two copies of itself which grows Lambholt. Giant Adephage could replace Spawnwrithe since they do the same thing just one is three mana and other is seven mana. Add Curiosity Crafter or Reconnaissance Mission for a draw engine.

Tireless Provisioner is a repeatable source of treasures making it good repeatable ramp since it has interaction with Twincasters. Mimic Vat is powerful repeatable token source in multiplayer Commander since you can imprint an opponent's creature who dies, but sadly the additional token that Twincaster makes also gets exiled.


Cackling Counterpart is an instant to create a token of a creature you control. Mystic Reflection can create many copies of a nonlegendary creature of your choice when a creature or many creatures at the same time ETB. Double Major can make a token copy of a creature if you cast it while that creature spell is on the stack.

Risen Reef is a creature you want to make a token copy of because each Risen triggers itself as well as all other Risens you control. With Twincasters and one Risen in your control, if you make a token copy of Risen then you get six Risen triggers since both token copies ETB at the same time and see each other. Each token sees each other when they ETB which is four triggers and each token Risen also triggers Risen already on the battlefield for two more triggers for a total of six Risen triggers.

If interested in any of these suggestions then I offer more advice including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

Strangelove on Braids, the Poisoned Apple.

Hey Astroburrito, saw your reddit post!

Cool build- a buddy of mine ran this for a while with all the mana doublers he could jam in mono-u. Fast mana into Eldrazi hurts...

Best thing to do imo: run more lands and ramp to match your curve. You want to cast Braids on turn 3 every game (so run lots of 2 drop rocks) and then have lots of mana if she gets hated out.

Your fatties are pretty ruthless so I wouldn't run anything that is slow or conditional like Keiga or Arcanis. Assume none of your creatures will live unless you protect them... run things like Not of This World or Mimic Vat .

Gl and +1!

Housegheist on Squirrel Infestation

Finally we get some squirrel suppport. Currently I'm working on a squirrel deck too - even if i know, that it will be a more... meme-like or fun-deck than somewhat competitive. I saw, you're suggest using Earl of Squirrel , so your playgroup doesn't mind using Silver Bordereds? Then I have a few silver bordered suggestions: Acornelia, Fashionable Filcher - pump effect and cute acorn-counter Squirrel Dealer - Funny card though Squirrel Farm - funny token creator

others: Ivy Lane Denizen - pumps your army

Scurry Oak - can go nuts with Ivy Lane Denizen ... get it? it goes nuts :D

Vanquisher's Banner - anthem and draw effect

Realmwalker - plays Top-cards and counts as a squirrel

Witch's Oven Sac-Outlet and the food-token generates a new Squirrel with Chatterfang

Vivien, Monsters' Advocate - generates Tokens which works well with chatterfang plus tutor-ish effect Sylvan Anthem - Anthem and card quality even on tokens

Swarmyard - regenerates squirrels

Return of the Wildspeaker - extraordinary strong card

Ohran Frostfang - let your opponent choose between trading or to let you draw cards.

Moldervine Reclamation - dying creatures wont hurt you anymore

Mimic Vat - See Moldervine Reclamation but repeatable

Adaptive Automaton - Anthem effect for Squirrels

Beastmaster Ascension - huge anthem

Creakwood Liege - Anthem and token generator

Ezuri's Predation - REmoval which works prett well with tokens

Bramble Sovereign - Because i love this card

I really like this as a budget list.

A few options for taking it to fnm with a sideboard;

Cool X cost spells that are sideboardable - Corrosive Gale is colourless vs fliers, while Hurricane deals symetrical damage to players, which can jank out someone who fetched and put fear into people running shadow.

Mascot Exhibition doesn't need to be in the sideboard it puts a lot of bodies on the board. Vivien's Arkbow didn't find its neiche, and thus is cheap.

Chaos Wand and Mimic Vat can solo win grindy matchups.

Avarice Totem is a hilarious answer to a lot of cards that are otherwise unanswerable, if reliant on your opponent not having mana. Swapping stuff back and forth to remove it from combat becomes an entire instant speed back and forth game.

Orbs of Warding turns off a lot of decks.
