I believe that the word "Vesuvan" comes from the German word for "to look alike."

When it comes into play it does not TARGET (so you can have a 10/10 "protection from everthing" creature too!

Aside from being one of the most iconic blue cards in both flavor and ability (what's more blue than copying a creature using magic?), it's also one of the most memorable pieces of art in Magic.

Clone's more complex cousin...Equinox, you are right, that is some nice art...

The coolest think you can do with a doppleganger is to get it to copy itself. Next turn, the ability triggers twice, so you keep selecting itself. 2,4,8,16 instances of the triggered ability over subsequent turns. Then with a morphling in play, you can switch to something like a prodigal sorcerer, switch back to morphling, pay U, untap, switch to prodigal sorcerer as many times as you can.

The most practical sort of target is a multiplayer beater like a pristine angel, then you can turn it into the biggest fattest creature in play when you are ready to win.

... except that you'll only have that 10/10 for all of a split second before state-based effects take it away... along with your opponent's copy.
