Clever Combo

Jun 17, 2019

Do you like R-Chupacabra? And getting caught in Notion Rain? OK, OK, Notion Rain isn't in this deck, but the Chup is, and so is Quasiduplicate, which means 12 opportunities minimum to 2-for-1 your opponent the easy way.

In this episode of Clever Combo, JJ brings us to Value Town with a consistent, ETB-driven Dimir deck

Xerox Machine is a XLN-WAR standard deck. On early turns, it focuses on stealing value from the opponent. Thought Erasure clears the hand of key early plays, and Kitesail Freebooter keeps up pressure on the hand. Early removal like Price of Fame also helps keep the opponent from developing a board presence.

In main mode, the deck will 2-for-1 the opponent with Ravenous Chupacabra and Dream Eater, while snatching even more value with Thief of Sanity. Throw in Nightveil Predator for some threat diversity, in the form of an incredibly hard to remove creature.

The deck’s real threat starts when it begins to copy creatures. It’s basically a better blink, because you get to replay the ETB, but you get another body on top of it. Quasiduplicate is effectively an 8-of, Mirror Image is an easier to cast version, and Spark Double adds a mana, but also adds a +1 counter.
