Sakashima the Impostor Discussion

I'm personally a big fan of Steel Hellkite . Solid removal in EDH. Sure you run into it dying to removal or being countered or whatever, but honestly the threat of removal is real for all permanents. I don't play a game with the mindset of fear; I play the game to have fun. And besides, not every single opponent runs plenty of removal, and not every single opponent immediately has said removal at their disposal.

Argentum Armor is super based, if you can get it out. Works wonders in ramp decks.

Caged Sun is great for ramp, especially in mono-white.

Contagion Engine , but it requires a lot of setup to get true value out of.

Duplicant is great, again, for removal. Fits in any deck, exiles any creature and can potentially be massive if you exile something such as The Ur-Dragon .

Eternity Vessel is super based in mono-white. Run the full gambit of fetch lands and crack them when you're life total is too low. Use in response to it's inevitable removal for some last-second value.

God-Pharaoh's Statue will shut down combo and tempo players in their tracks.

Gonti's Aether Heart can land you infinite turns if you set it up right. You need to Ensoul it, then you want to clone it. You can use Spork Double (misspelled on purpose lol), Sakashima of a Thousand Faces , Mirror Gallery , Sakashima the Impostor or some other spells to do so. Once you're online, do something such as Followed Footsteps , Progenitor Mimic , Rite of Replication . If you're using Progenitor Mimic , you're already in green. So use token-doubling effects such as Doubling Season . You can even bypass all of this for Mechanized Production and Mirror Gallery . Regardless, once you're online you'll be able to exile one and take an extra turn, make another at the beginning of your upkeep and kick off another one. Boom, infinite extra turns. But again, lots of setup.

But I think, of everything, my pick is Mindslaver .

Hold up the mana and use it as the nuclear option. Nobody wants to mess with the man (or woman) who has their finger on the detonator.

Actually I just playtested it. Held its own fairly well. Helm of the Host is a great option for your Commander. Given that to be the case, if you don't mind stepping out of Sphinx not in spirit but in physicality, Spark Double , Sakashima the Impostor and Sakashima of a Thousand Faces all allow you additional copies of Yennett in play.

The deck struggled a little to get spells out but I think I was just having poor draw. I was two lands behind on curve almost at all times. I did take an opening hand with 3 lands, but sometimes cards bulk together like that.

I somehow missed to inclued Dockside Extortionist into this list. Also, Sakashima of a Thousand Faces and Sakashima the Impostor do work so incredibly well in this list, I am considering to put in Spark Double on top to get even more clone effects and coinflips.

Yes, a copy of Myojin of Seeing Winds cast from hand will enter with a Divinity counter, regardless of whether the original has a Divinity Counter. This is true whether you keep both, using a copy like Sakashima of a Thousand Faces or Sakashima the Impostor that lets you keep both, or a regular copy like Clone or Clever Impersonator. Token copies aren't cast, even if the spell that makes them is, so Cackling Counterpart or Spitting Image won't give you the Divinity counter.

Moritte of the Frost: animated Clever Impersonator in the command zone, but only your permanents (but not just your creatures). AFAIK unlike Sakashima the Impostor it does copy the permanent's name, so other legendaries are a no-no.

Baron_Pretzels Hey, thanks for your interest.

Double upkeeps does sound nice, yes, but there are no other upkeep triggers in the deck at all and Paradox Haze will do nothing if we don't have Ravos out or if we haven't started milling ourselves yet. In this specific case, I believe that Sakashima the Impostor or Sakashima of a Thousand Faces would be far more versatile options because we could use them to clone any other creature on top of being able to make a second Ravos.
