Sakashima's Student

Creature — Human Ninja

Ninjutsu (, Return an unblocked attacker you control to hand: Put this card onto the battlefield from your hand tapped and attacking.)

You may have this enter the battlefield as a copy of any creature on the battlefield, except this is still a ninja in addition to this creature's other types.

Don't most of your clone effects immediately die due to legendary rule if your goal is to copy Vial Smasher the Fierce?

I think Phyrexian Metamorph, Clever Impersonator, Clone, Cryptoplasm, Sakashima's Student, Stunt Double, Spark Double and Mirage Mirror all don't ignore legendary rule and therefore one of your Vial Smasher the Fierce will die.

Also while just excellent cards in general Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots kind of backfire if your goal is to copy Vial Smahser.

Since you're running some clone effects, Sakashima's Student could help bounce some of those ETB creatures while getting your clone work going. Interesting deck.

Sakashima's Student is kinda pricey and a little conditional, but it’s possibly the best clone and also a flavor win and it’s always worked great for me.

I like this theme. There's a few of my favorite additions missing from your list, though, so I'll just drop them here...

Also, Telemin Performance is a card I really wish was good, and tend to run it even though it isn't, and Knowledge Exploitation is one of my absolute favorites, but probably wouldn't work for you because you don't have nearly enough Rogues to cast it for its prowl cost.

Furthermore, I've seen in the comments that you don't like to run cards that steal stuff because it makes hurt feels, but it's worth mentioning that Treachery is, in my opinion, seriously undervalued.

I'm not good at suggesting cuts, but just wanted to enter my two cents. Cheers!

Blinkmoth Infusion

Discovery / Dispersal


Force of Will

Dig Through Time

Commit / Memory

some 0 and 1 drops to consider as well:

Phyrexian Walker


some ninjas to consider:

Fallen Shinobi

Sakashima's Student

Silent-Blade Oni

freefury You're right, it's my first time building a commander deck with a companion and I didn't take that into account haha. For the moment I'll add Gigantoplasm, would love to add Sakashima's Student but don't have the money at the time haha
