Sakashima the Impostor Discussion

Raging_Squiggle on Is this infnite?

Reidzee757, it’s a state based action that says if a player controls more than one legendary permanent of the same name, they pick one and the rest are put into their owner’s graveyards.

And yes, card text supersedes the rules at all times. Spark Double specifically states that it will not be legendary if the copied permanent is legendary. On the other hand, cards specifically say they will retain their legendary status, ie Lazav, Dimir Mastermind and Sakashima the Impostor.

Outliers that straight up deny the legend rule, being Sakashima of a Thousand Faces, and Mirror Gallery

Great deck, any Reaper King deck deserves a +1

First note, the more Reaper Kings the better. These would all act as multiple Kings and bypass the legendary rule:

Second note, ramp ramp ramp, a 5 colour deck is tough, so you need as much fixing as possible incase we need to hard cast our big stuff:

  • Triomes with fetch lands are an awesome colour fix, Zagoth Triome
  • land ramp is always better then mana rocks, adding in the 2 mana ramp spells will help you see a turn 3/4 Reaper king, Three Visits
  • mana fixing and extra land drops help get to the goal too, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove

Lastly, try to trim the fat, you got some good cards like Trinket Mage and Trophy Mage but without tons of excellent targets their potential is wasted here. Ibwould save them for a different deck.

I really like your build. Going to link mine now and then get back to yours Bruvac the Grandiloquent Millage Pillage

I too saw the sweet Persistent Petitioners synergy but did not commit quite like you did. Intruder Alarm makes it interesting. Thrumming Stone makes it stupid.

You have some pet instant/sorcery cards that I think could be upgraded for more on theme carnage:

Sakashima the Impostor Bruvac #2

Retraced Image this is my hidden tech in my list but it is statistically better in yours!

Visions of Beyond = is always Ancestral Recall in this deck.

Winds of Rebuke = technically better than Boomerang in this deck.

Archive Trap it's EDH. Everybody tutors. Mill 26 for free.

Long-Term Plans to get your engine pieces and all the cool cards I suggested ;)

I like the deck name.

Spark Double, Sakashima the Impostor, and Sakashima of a Thousand Faces might be worthwhile includes here. Having multiple Anowons seems good.

You might like these too: Dance of the Dead, Memory Plunder, Syr Konrad, the Grim

Thank you, Neotrup, it's a valid point to make, but I'd have Sakashima of a Thousand Faces , Sakashima the Impostor (Ok, that's not technically a copy of Koma) or Spark Double out. I didn't think it was worth mentioning, since, as Daveslab2022 said, it was not the point. But I guess I should have mentioned it to be clear.

I've had a lot of fun copying Yuriko with Spark Double and Sakashima the Impostor to double the number of card draw triggers.
