Rite of Replication


Kicker (You may pay an additional as you cast this spell.)

Create a token that's a copy of target creature. If this was kicked, put five of those tokens onto the battlefield instead.

FormOverFunction Yes like Croaking Counterpart which is also in the deck! This is a great idea, and I love the flavor.

enpc Couldn't agree more, had a lot of those same thoughts myself about how few things can populate AND make a token. The ability needs to be weaker to feel more fair/fun and copying only my creatures is a good start.

The reason I hesitate is because it is a bit of a "steal by making my own copies" deck with clone cards, and making token copies of my clones, or there's a few cards that can make tokens of any creature. (Formoverfunction was right on the money with the Croaking Counterpart reference, also Rite of Replication, Followed Footsteps, and cards like Progenitor Mimic and Theoretical Duplication ) This helps the deck have more randomness/variety/less linear gameplay instead of just playing my own strong pieces and copying them.

Progenitor Mimic was actually the card that originally inspired this whole deck. I am brainstorming ways to make this card a bit more fun and maybe less strong. I like both of your ideas, but I am going to mess around with some other ideas and repost. I want to see if I can keep the populate ability and maybe mess around with Embalm or Encore, maybe life gain when creatures ETB... but keep it bant. Something more fun and maybe less strong- but I wouldn't be surprised to come back to this design though.

beastmenwarrior That sounds great! Once it is available in the card database I can pop it into the maybeboard and eventually the deck! It does solve a weakness in one of our combo lines with Rite of Replication and Naru Meha, Master Wizard in a neat way. Normally we don't need to kick Rite with Dualcaster Mage to make infinite copies which we can use for various win cons, but with Naru Meha we can't do that because the legend rule makes us sac her immediately. As such the only way to exploit her is to get infinite triggers via the kicked version, and then use those triggers to target another wizard which we could use to win (Anathemancer was the easy route for this before we cut it, though in theory we could in any other way. Not only was this way inelegant and convoluted, the amount of mana required to do it was massive. This way makes Naru Meha, Master Wizard and Dualcaster Mage functional equivalents for the purpose of combos and increases our odds of winning that way. Definitely an exciting card! As a veteran Baldur's Gate player from back in the day it will add a little homecoming nostalgia for me that way as well.

Just Spoiled today but I think Irencicus's Vile Duplication (Sorcery 3U: Create a token that's a copy of target creature you control, except the token has flying and isn't legendary if that creature is legendary) replaces Rite of Replication.

Gives us another infinite and allows us to copy some of our sweet legendary wizards.

By the way, I don't actually recall if I've seen this "combo" yet, but you can use Dryad Arbor and some sort of flicker, like Deadeye Navigator to get massive and draw a ton of cards - especially on someone's endstep.

Similarly, a Rite of Replication would immediately put 5 lands into play.

Just food for thought ;)

Unfortunately, this doesn't work. Once the original Lord Xander, the Collector with Return to Action leaves and returns to the battlefield, it's treated as a completely new creature and doesn't get the benefits of Return to Action anymore.

Once you cast Rite of Replication and the token copies enter, if you sacrifice the original Lord Xander, the Return to Action basically "wears off" and it's effect doesn't apply to Xander once it returns. You still get a big pile of Xander's etb/dies effects, though.

Great deck, Waste Not, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and Rite of Replication will fit in pretty good as well.

Forceofnature1 This is by far one of my most fun decks to play as it really never plays the same. One of my favorite plays I ever pulled off was using a kicked Rite of Replication on my opponents Captivating Vampire and then proceeded to take control of everyone's commanders. This is made even more disgusting by Seedborn Muse. Sadly, I have never actually pulled off the Biovisionary win. But someday I will.

If you can get 100 counters on your boardstate, try Walking Archive. I promise you it's a fun winning condition!

(So is Rite of Replication for a quick 90 counters by cloning reyhan)
