I say this in every post about aggressive decks (and budget decks, but for other reasons) in EDH, but Xenagos, God of Revels is great. It allows you to dodge the normal problem that aggro has of over extending into board wipes by allowing you to play a single other creature and turn it into a fast clock.

My personal favorite plays in my Xenagos deck include turn 3 Atarka, World Render for 24 flying trample. And 8 damage turn 5 into 32 damage turn 6 off of Heroes' Bane. I was threatening 112 damage turn 7, but the bane was wisely removed.

The way you have that ability worded, the "redirected" damage doesn't use the stack. Which makes it a bit weird with targeting since you are going to have to declare targets when you activate the ability to create the shield. The way it works as written is that the 2 damage will be dealt to the 2/2, then 1 deathtouch will be dealt to the 3/3 with no player receiving priority in between. When a player would receive priority SBAs will be checked and both creatures will be destroyed.

(super ninjaed, but posting anyway)

615.5. Some prevention effects also include an additional effect, which may refer to the amount of damage that was prevented. The prevention takes place at the time the original event would have happened; the rest of the effect takes place immediately afterward.

If you wanted the redirected damage from your ability to use they stack you would need to word it as "Pay (activation cost): Prevent the next 1 combat damage that would be dealt to this creature this turn. WHEN damage is prevented this way, this creature deals that much damage to another target creature." If the wording were changed to be this then the 2 damage would be dealt to the 2/2. The 1 deathtouch damage would trigger and wait to be put on the stack. When a player would receive priority SBAs will be checked and the 2/2 will be destroyed. Then the 1 deathtouch trigger would be put on the stack (abilities exist independently of their sources). When all players pass with the deathtouch damage being the top object on the stack the deathtouch damage will be dealt and the next time SBAs are checked the 3/3 will be destroyed.

Please link all cards in your question using double brackets.

Narcomoeba

Prized Amalgam

Yes, Narcomoeba triggers when it is put in the graveyard from the library. This means it has to enter the graveyard to trigger. It is then put on to the battlefield. So it entered the battlefield from the graveyard and triggers Prized Amalgam.

Yes

400.1. A zone is a place where objects can be during a game. There are normally seven zones: library, hand, battlefield, graveyard, stack, exile, and command. Some older cards also use the ante zone. Each player has their own library, hand, and graveyard. The other zones are shared by all players.

Single CMC of 3.

715.4. In every zone except the stack, and while on the stack not as an Adventure, an adventurer card has only its normal characteristics.

While I am still a fan of Hanlon's Razor (try not to be offended, the "stupid" part still isn't aimed at you) in this case the name is an actual slur that has been used. The journey to the card doesn't matter. Nobody should lose a job over it unless it is part of a larger pattern of problematic behavior. The game as a whole is better off without the card though.

It is part of WotC's ban to remove racially/culturally insensitive cards from sanctioned formats. This particular card was banned because "stone throwing devils" is an old slur for muslims.

No, it is at Keqing420. He was assuming malice by saying "i'm assuming you were intentionally mislead". I was saying it was better to assume ignorance of the rules than malice. I'm unsure why you are being so hostile when I thought it was pretty clear that "don't assume malice, assume stupidity" could only refer to that. I am going to chalk this up to a misunderstanding though so that feelings do not get further hurt by lashing back and forth. Have a good day.

Hanlon's Razor (never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity) should usually be applied to MtG questions.

The Panharmonicon works is that when a triggered ability of a permanent you control triggers, if it triggered from an artifact or creature entering the battlefield, it triggers twice. Since Rapacious Dragon has to have entered the battlefield for his ETB to trigger, it is from a permanent you control.

It depends on if the nontoken Sakashima is already copying something. If it is then both Progenitor Mimic and the copy made by it are what Sakashima was copying. If the nontoken Sakashima is just itself, then you would be able to have your token copy copy the Progenitor Mimic copy, which would still be a Sakashima.

I know that last sentence is worded weirdly, it is the only way I could think of to say that copying the Progenitor Mimic will only give you a Sakashima with extra mimic abilities.

The wording on Progenitor Mimic is referring to if the Mimic itself is a token. It is so that you create one additional copy per turn, instead of growing exponentially like Scute Swarm does.
