Soooooo much fun. I run Mimeoplasm dredge EDH that focuses on self and opponent mill to increase graveyard sizes. With that much control over what you put out on the table, things get absurd quickly. Triskelion is too easy, and everyone sees it coming by now. Fatten up the 'yards and then use Timmyplasm to clone Necrotic Ooze or Cairn Wanderer. The greatest strength of this guy is he is versatile enough to hit the table and respond to any situation.

Keep up this unprecedented long-stay in the Hall-O-Fame! Hey, can you name any other general that goes good with a side of Birthing Pod in the deck? -Great addition to Damia, Sage of Stone -Enjoy the "Solid State" 5 while it lasts there Muddy Buddy

This creature is so well-loved, nobody even complains that he took up precious reprint space in Commander's Arsenal. :)

The possibilities aren't quite endless, but there are currently at least 44 million possible combos to try (15 million if you're using Mimeoplasm as your Commander and can't play black or red creatures).

I run him with a load of unblockable creatures and janky stuff like Phyrexian Dreadnought. A 19/19 Ghastlord of Fugue? Yes please!

Lol @ SyntheticDreamer: next turn curve into Prime Speaker Zegana.

EDIT: @ AeroSigma: I'm not sure why they wouldn't be placed on the creature. When you drop Planeswalkers, you place counters on them. Check out the rulings:

If Fathom Mage enters the battlefield with a +1/+1 counter on it (perhaps due to Master Biomancer), its last ability will trigger once for each +1/+1 counter it entered the battlefield with.

Correct me if I'm missing something obvious, but I think it works. Also, I already mentioned Prime Speaker Zegana.

For how much this card entices the imagination, and for how fun it was picking a toolbox of creatures while building my deck, I'm surprised at how often I wind up with the exact same Mimeoplasm (Pathrazer of Ulamog + Death's Shadow). When I'm casting Buried Alive, there's very little reason to say no to a 22/22 annihilator 3 that demands a triple-chump-block; surviving that attack is usually a 6-for-1. I have a tendency to spend a few turns dicking around with my graveyard and then swing for a one-shot kill. As someone who likes a close game more than a blowout victory, this disappoints me.

The real fun of The Mimeoplasm comes from when things don't work out perfectly. When you have to find a way to get those last few points of commander damage through, and your best stuff has been exiled, and you're pawing through everyone's graveyards to find two creatures to melt together to get the job done. My favorite was ... (see all)

@SirLibraryEater: You should reread Worldspine Wurm (he's pretty much never going to be in the yard)

@MrFreshnessTimmy: You're wrong. Mimeoplasm uses the root "mimeo" ("to copy"; from Greek "mimeomai" = "I imitate"), which is pronouced as "mim-e-oh". See also the real word "mimeograph" (mim-e-oh-graf): http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/mimeograph?s=t

So, this and the new Fathom Mage from Gatecrash. Exile Fathom Mage and Death's Shadow. Congratulations, you just paid five mana for a 14/14, and drew 13 cards in the process.

Muraganda really needs to be the Plane we go to next, right after Shandalar, from all the references we've had :P

@ SyntheticDreamer, That won't work. Mimeoplasm "enters the battlefield" with the counters from Death's Shadows. They don't count towards Fathom Mage's triggered abbility, since they aren't considered to be 'placed on' the creature, so no 13 card draw. You still get a 14/14 for 5 mana though.

PS- Just use Prime Speaker Zegana, you'll get 14 + X card draw
