KongMing on Fblthp the found

Need some more ways to protect Fblthp. Ghostly Flicker might do nicely, and it 'untaps' Proteus Staff for you, too. And hey, don't forget about Polymorph !

Also, stuff that allows you to steal creatures from other people seems pretty alright by me. You'll be the controller, so you still get to 'search' your library for Fblthp even if you 'sacrifice' their creature to the staff. I'm thinking Bribery , Treachery , Mind Control , In Bolas's Clutches , and Sudden Substitution . Even though you can't have creatures in your library, you can still have creatures on your board! :D

In a similar vein, I'd recommend stuff like Clone Legion , Mirage Mirror , Mirror Match , Rite of Replication , Saheeli's Artistry , Stolen Identity , Supplant Form . These let you copy creatures in play, which is (I cannot stress this enough) VERY POWERFUL with counterspell support. The ability to let only certain threats slip through the cracks means you are effectively deciding what you want to copy later. Let them have their It That Betrays for now, you can just make 5 token copies of it next turn with Rite of Replication. Clones, with counterspell support and protection, can be an alternate win condition in their own right. After all, other people planned on winning with that creature - why can't you?

Suggestions:

Reclamation Sage will ETB to destroy and trigger ezuri.

Viridian Corrupter will do the same and have infect.

Deadeye Navigator will let you repeat ETB effects.

Peregrine Drake will go infinite with deadeye navigator making mana and it triggers ezuri.

Sylvan Safekeeper will help protect your important creatures.

Heroic Intervention will help protect everything.

Sage of Hours combos with ezuri for infinite turns once you have 5 experience.

Tuskguard Captain will give all your buffed creatures trample and trigger ezuri.

Negate or Swan Song are cheap ways to stop the sorceries that will wipe your board.

Replace Mirror Match with Spike Weaver since you can put counters on it.

Edric, Spymaster of Trest gets you cards and convinces opponents to hit other players.

Alchemist's Refuge let's you flash cards on other turns and it's a land.

Triumph of the Hordes would be a one shot kill card in the deck as it would give all your creatures infect and a buff.

Kamahl, Fist of Krosa is overrun on a creature.

I'd consider cutting: Arbor Collossus and Elder Druid

Congratulations for your deck! I like the idea of cloning stuff, and I am still trying to find a build that works. If I can give you a hint, prefer cards that can clone any creature on the field over the cards that can only clone your creatures (everyone should have a Consecrated Sphinx , right? Not only your opponent).

I don't feel like would help you much with cloning. The best (and maybe only) white card that refers to cloning is Mirrorweave .

If you look at https://edhrec.com/themes/clones, you will see that almost all clone effects are blue: Clone , Vizier of Many Faces , Gigantoplasm , Vesuvan Shapeshifter , Body Double , Mirror Image , Supplant Form , Blatant Thievery , Clone Legion , Mirror Match . If you want to copy spells aswell, Insidious Will , Swarm Intelligence and Spelltwine are there for you.

gives you Mirror Match , Dack's Duplicate , Dualcaster Mage , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Protean Raider , Flameshadow Conjuring and Sunbird's Invocation .

gives you Evil Twin and all black tutors and removal.

gives you Altered Ego , Progenitor Mimic , Spitting Image and all of green ramp and removal. For me, it is the best color to splash on a blue clone deck, because it also allows the Biovisionary alternative win-condition.

As long as commander suggestions are concerned, here are some ideas:

Riku of Two Reflections is the go-to clone commander. He has all the relevant colors for cloning (), but he is crazy expensive at 20 dollars, so it might be good to consider other options:

You can have Keiga, the Tide Star as your commander. This way, you can clone him and let the copy Keiga die to the legend rule. When the Keiga copy dies, you can steal an opponent's creature, while still having the original Keiga.

You can have Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer as your commander. He is a win condition by himself, giving tokens haste and making all of them bigger. Red gives you a lot of token generators: Brass's Bounty , Flameshadow Conjuring , Storm the Vault  Flip among others. Imagine creating a token copy of a Kokusho, the Evening Star , then turn all your tokens into Kokusho, then sacrificing all them to the legend rule, then draining all your oponents for lethal. Great value!

You can have Tatyova, Benthic Druid as your commander. She doesn't refer to a clone strategy, but she gives a lot of card draw by just playing lands (your hand will always be filled). You can clone Rampaging Baloths and Avenger of Zendikar for a massive win. Also, you have access to all the blue-green clones and the Biovisionary + Rite of Replication combo.

If you want to use altogether, you might consider Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder or Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis . Yidris allows you to use Evil Twin and all the black removal. Yidris also increases the value you get from playing spells by cascading into other spells. // K&T, on the other hand, gives you card advantage and makes you less threatening while you build your board. White also gives you access to great boardwipes ( Austere Command ).

All in all, good luck in your deckbuilding and have fun!

Excellent deck! I’ve always been interested in these two as a commander but never sat down to actually try and build them. I tried coming up with suggestions for you but everything that stood out for me you already have lol

Have you considered Mirror Match ?

Inexorable Tide and Chasm Skulker may fit here. Also Mirror Match would be crazy if attacked with a swarm and your commander on the field.

I'm confused by Mirror Match being in your deck as you can't cast it and it's not legal in your deck's color identity.

You've got counterspells so Asceticism can get cut plus it doesn't protect from board wipes. Besides it's your artifacts that are more important.

Cut Genesis Wave you have to many instants and sorcery spells.

Aethersnatch Its not strong enough.

Cut Mirror Match, unless you find yourself going up against slivers or other strong creature based decks. If you want to keep this then go ahead. But I think you've got enough counterspells to stop the real threats.

I thing coolest thing to do here is add flash speed spells. Leyline of Anticipation, and Vedalken Orrery. Are both really strong here other spells that fit right in are Aethersnatch,Commandeer, Counterlash, Gather Specimens, Kindred Summons, Mirror Match, Nexus of Fate, AEtherspouts, Desertion, Mystic Confluence, Spell Swindle

I would also look into artifact ramp with unwinding clock to untap them to put more mana in the pool. Cards like Victory Chimes are perfect
