Sakashima the Impostor Discussion

kraizor on Huge tracts of. . . Land

Considering Sakashima the Impostor is an interesting way which I was not thinking about, I will probably consider cards like this for my deck as well. I am also Ancient Greenwarden right now, huge powerhouse.

I love your deck, and here's some ideas for you to consider. Here's my version of a very similar deck if you'd like some additional ideas. Nekusar, the Mindrazer

Why not additional commanders, since you already have some clones, these ones get around the legendary rule. Spark Double Sakashima the Impostor.

If you'd like some crazy adds for discard pain, consider Surly Badgersaur Syr Konrad, the Grim

Obosh, the Preypiercer has been fun in my deck (not a companion), but I'm not sure if you have enough odd CMC cards.

Hopefully these help. :)

Pikobyte on Snakes need wheels, they don’t have feet *Primer*

Didn’t test any of those cards so far @RustyMC. But I ran Sakashima the Impostor instead of spark double for copying Xyris which fills the same role. Ended up cutting it because I didn’t play it most of the time. My problem with it was that I was mainly testing in 1v1 games with my gf. So I got only 7 mana with each wheel from earthcraft or phyrexian altar etc. if I use 4 of them to copy Xyris I can only go on with my turn if I got a 3 cmc wheel. If I got like a 5 cmc wheel I had to ditch it. I can see it being more useful in 4 player games since you get enough mana to cast everything you want anyways. Didn’t think about that jace, maybe I have to check that. Second harvest is a really edgy card, it’s only good in a short period of your turn. If you draw it early it doesn’t do much, if you draw it a few wheels later you would have won without it anyways. The problem with cards like this is that you can’t keep them in your hand until you need them. I get your point on diplomatic immunity, I’m thinking about switching it for kira too. I didn’t do far because it’s a really hard piece of protection since it can’t be removed as easy as greaves etc, I really like that part

Kogarashi on Mairsil ETB

In addition to the above, if you were to have multiple copies of Mairsil (via Helm of the Host or Sakashima the Impostor for instance), then each copy can activate each caged ability once per turn, for additional activations, because they are separate game objects from each other.

Hey! It was just a tester, I found out I need more ramp and less draw to get the appropriate setup.

The idea of the deck was to abuse Yorion, Sky Nomad with Sakashima the Impostor or Spark Double.

It lets you get an ETB on each non-land permanent on each player's turns. That's 4 cards off of any Wall of Omens/Sleeper Dart type effect, giving absurd card advantage, toss in all the cheap/free countermagic or interaction and then you basically just stop each opponent while grinding out cards by the handfuls, drawing more and more cards that when flickered draw more and more, get a few turns of that and you just get 20-40 cards a cycle. It's insane, I was thinking just a Thassa's Oracle out of nowhere could do it, I mean, 4 of those triggers could be good either way.
