Minion Reflector


Whenever a nontoken creature enters the battlefield under your control, you may pay (2). If you do, put a token into play that's a copy of that creature. That token has haste and "At end of turn, sacrifice this permanent."

Absolutely love the Wizard tribal subtheme here. Kudos. You could lean into clone tokens to really get some huge ETB triggers:

  • Dual Nature would make the game wild, giving two copies of every creature played, including your opponents. With your general, Naban, or Panharmonicon, each ETB trigger would effectively happen SIX times.
  • Minion Reflector and Bramble Sovereign are a little safer than Dual Nature, but require a little extra mana for each trigger. But getting more than one of these effects on the field will quickly overwhelm your opponents.
  • Necroduality is another copier once Maskwood Nexus is up. Unsure if it'd be worth it otherwise though.
  • Elvish Hydromancer and Thousand-Faced Shadow give ETB cloning tokens for some fun chain reactions.
  • Replication Technique can copy your ETB creatures but also make copies of Panharmonicon or other enablers.
  • Rite of Replication is just nuts if you kick it on a Priest of Gix or anything else really.
  • Precursor Golem can generate a ton of bodies and be a great target for your own buffs or shenanigans if you add stuff above.
  • Scute Swarm will quickly get out of control once you start making copies of itself. Each land effectively triples your total number of Scute Swarm after 6 lands.

Minion Reflector could help get more etb effects.

Cool deck! +1

Maybe Minion Reflector is another card that fits your deck

Here's the issue with Minion Reflector as you explain it: the "Legend Rule." So, you're going to cast Kathril, and then pay an additional to make a token copy of it. Problem is, since it's the same legendary creature, then you have to sacrifice one of them. If you sac the original Kathril so you can attack with the hasty one, then you not only up the Command tax for the next cast of Kathril, you also lose the token copy because you have to sacrifice it at the end of turn. If you sac the token copy, then you still didn't get to attack with it, spoiling the haste portion of it. It would probably be much better suited in a deck that is focusing on lots of creatures with ETB or LTB abilities. In here, I don't think it's going to do as much as you'd like.

You could probably replace it with one of those draw spells. Spells like Night's Whisper are good, reliable spells, and I think I run it my Kathril deck. But don't discount Rishkar's Expertise. It will do more than you think it will, for sure. Players are going to likely key on Kathril once it hits the board, and you don't want to run out of gas, so keeping the grip full is important. Return of the Wildspeaker is another good option. When Kathril comes down, he's probably looking at coming down with more than 5 power. Drawing 5 cards can be game-changing, especially in the late game when you are looking for answers.

As a general rule, I try to run at least 10 sources of ramp and 10 sources of card draw in my decks. If there is card draw on the Commander, I may cut that number down some, but not much. Kathril has a pretty high CMC, so ramping into him is important, so running a few more than 10 ramp spells might be a good idea.

Hope this helps!

@ bushido_man96 Thanks a lot for your comment (and upvote). I'm always happy about some advices and guidance :)

Oriq Loremage is already locked in.

I mainly want to use Minion Reflector to be able to distribute twice as much counters with Kathril, Aspect Warper to either my other creatures or Kathril itself. So while the original Kathril has to hold back with attacking (summoning sickness), the token (copy) of it can already swing in for some heavy commander damage due to the haste ability. To me this sounds like a good plan, or am i missing something here?

Carddraw-wise i feel the same - there should be more in it. But isn't Rishkar's Expertise a bit situational? What if i just got boardwiped? And if i have the "big guys" out already i am probably fine anyways even with a thin hand. Or is this just me, being an unexperienced mtg player thinking stupid stuff like this? Maybe just add "simpler" card draws like Night's Whisper etc.?

Oriq Loremage is a tutor you should consider. Very good here, and very budget. Skirge Familiar is a good creature for dumping creatures into your graveyard and ramping for it.

It does appear that you could use some more card draw. I'd cut Selective Adaptation for something like Rishkar's Expertise. Minion Reflector seems ok, but I don't think it's what you want to do here. But, if it's an effect you'd like more of, Dual Nature might fit the bill.

DrukenReaps on Is Mirror March good for …

2 years ago

I like Flameshadow Conjuring and Minion Reflector more for their consistency, even Molten Echoes if you happen to have ~10 or more creatures that share a creature type. If you are already running the above then I'd consider Mirror March. The only thing I'd say with Mirror March is that it is just as likely to do nothing as it is to do something. Really fun card if it works though.
