Creature — Shapeshifter
You may have Progenitor Mimic enter the battlefield as a copy of any creature on the battlefield except it gains "At the beginning of your upkeep, if this creature isn't a token, create a token that's a copy of this creature."

New cards arrived today - woot!
Only a handful of replacements
Joining the team (from my MTGA Brawl deck)
Nothing crazy as I'm trying to keep this deck fun with a chance to win out of no where. Hence the decks name :)
Any ideas are welcome!

Nightmare Shepherd is one of the best as it adds a lot of functionality with no upfront cost and allows you to exploit sacrifice mechanics like evoke. Creating token clones with etb/ltb can easily become overpowered, especially when combined with populate. In fact I built a great ETB Roon EDH deck around it using cards like Yosei, the Morning Star, Protean Hulk and Wayfaring Temples that clone themselves. Token clone generation is amazing because it's essentially ETB blinking as a side effect. You have some cards that do it already listed under abuse but I think the mechanic is good enough and has enough viable cards that it might be worth making a new category for it.

Listing the ones that specifically clone or blink artifacts in their own group might be helpful too.

Hey Jormngunder2053, +1 m8
Check out my Zada secret commander (w/ Tazri) for some random tech... 5c Zada/ Cantrips.
You might like Progenitor Mimic in there...
Silverfur Partisan is my favorite combo with Zada (lots of wolves)...
...The Zada/Ink-Treader package is very strong. Think of your cantrips as improved Ancestral Recall ...
When running a budget land base, avoid double pips unless they win big. Keep it mostly green and run all the 2 drop green ramp and you're good to go. I like the 2 drop ramp-bodies because they combo with Zada.
Cheers and gl.

Btw, Progenitor Mimic is another great card for the clone theme.

I'm not a rules guy. Would Sylvan Offering allow you to create elves before treefolk?

I've always been enamored with secret commander decks. Whether it's Riku of Two Reflections Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer or Sisay, Weatherlight Captain Winota, I've always loved to give a card more colors then it has. But as of late, I've been wanting to build around some other cards and these are the ones that've caught my eye. For reference, I'm planning on using Esika, God of the Tree Flipas my General.
Paradox Haze : Hoo boy, this synergizes with everything. The Force Cycle , As Foretold , The Bringer Cycle , hell, you can use Starfield of Nyx to make Paradox Haze a creature and go ham with Progenitor Mimic or Followed Footsteps .
Divine Visitation : This is one of the more broken ones you could do. Any creature tokens you create become Serra Angels . Tendershoot Dryad ? That's one Serra Angel per turn. Darien, King of Kjeldor ? That's potentially 30 Serra Angels per game. The list goes on.
So what about you? What do you want to build around?
