Now that the legends rule has changed and each player can control one of each legendary creature, he's much obviously better than Clone; now neither of them kill an opponent's legend, but Sakashima still lets you have two of your own legend.

Sakashima now has a student - Sakashima's Student. And he's wearing one of those masks, and he's a ninja too!

In my blue EDH deck I use him to copy Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur as often as possible.

Use this card to copy Iona, Shield of Emeria, and you can block two colors that opponents are using.

In a 5 player EDH, I played Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. A friend then played Sakashima the Impostor copying Elesh. Fun was had by all except the other 3 players. Now, if only I had played the Sakashima...

I love it! Who needs to kill a general when you can have two!?

It took me a while to really grasp the "its name is still Sakashima the Impostor" line... But then my jaw, it dropped!

I agree with A3Kitsune, basically, all shapeshifters should work like this, after all, in-universe, a shapeshifter looking like Volrath died to Gerrard's blade in the Evincar's place!

Also, the thought that this lady goes to her wardrobe and pulls a disguise that then makes her into a titanic Elder God monstrosity is highly amusing. :D

Happy Mask Salesman from the N64 Zelda games! Therefore his theme song shall be the Song of Healing

His flavor text should have been.
"I don't want to kill you. What would I be without you?"

Yes, you can copy a Legendary creature and they remain in the battlefield! It's a reusable Clone, but it's Legendary so you can't have more than one in the battlefield.
-easier casting cost
-kills Legends

-doesn't kill Legends
-At its worst is a 3/1 for 2BlueBlue
-It's Legendary
