Except this version has horrible, horrible flavour text.

I wouldn't really say the new legend rule "hampers" him. He gets to be your own copy of Kamahl, Fist of Krosa or Tolsimir Wolfblood or whatever. It was pretty strange for blue to have a 4 mana Hero's Demise anyway.

.... Master Biomancer says "clone.. You don't have to pretend to be anyone else."

-Clone choses to be a 2/2 clone-

*your opponent seems confused.*

-You play Progenitor mimic... copy clone-

How would this interact with Gideon, Champion of Justice when he is in Creature-Planeswalker mode? My bet is that it would come in with no loyalty counters. "one copies exactly what was printed on the original creature and nothing more (unless that creature is copying something else or is a token; see below). It doesn't copy whether that creature is tapped or untapped, whether it has any counters on it or Auras attached to it, or any non-copy effects that have changed its power, toughness, types, color, or so on." .... And would he be able to use his loyalty abilities o other turns?

"How would this interact with Gideon, Champion of Justice when he is in Creature-Planeswalker mode?"


Your answer can be found by reading the bolded (EDIT: autocarded the text to make reading way easier; all the links in the rules quotes are, of course, garbage) text in the order I've presented it. The rest of the text has been copied to reinforce that conclusion if you don't believe me - which would be absurd because everything presented here is a direct quote.

"You may have Clone enter the battlefield as a copy of any creature on the battlefield."

"0: Until end of turn, Gideon, Champion of Justice becomes a Human Soldier creature with power and toughness each equal to the number of loyalty counters on him and gains indestructible. He's still a planeswalker. Prevent all damage that would be dealt to him this turn."

"Gideon, Champion of Justice's second ability causes... (see all)

Unfortunately, you can't copy your own Planeswalker-Creature. It will copy your Planeswalker's type, and then, since there are two "Gideon" type Planeswalkers in play, one will be removed when state based effects are checked.

See: "306.4. If a player controls two or more planeswalkers that share a planeswalker type, that player chooses one of them, and the rest are put into their owners' graveyards. This is called the "planeswalker uniqueness rule." See rule 704."

I love this card. I wish it would get some frickin new art for a change, but I love it nonetheless.

I also like how it works in EDH better with the rules change. Instead of your opponents wanting to punch you in the face because you keep offing their commanders, you can have their super special shiny legendary on your field too! The way it should be, really.

And even though there are "better" clones these days, with Phyrexian Metamorph and Phantasmal Image running around, this guy will always be my favorite.

4/5 Easily.

What happens in the case that a card like Archetype of Aggression is cloned? Does nobody get trample? Does everybody? Does the multiverse explode?

If you clone your opponent's archetype, everyone loses the key word. No implosion, they just say your opponents can't gain thing.

I am hoping we get a new clone in Journey to Nyx! Like Phyrexian Metamorph but just trade all instances of artifact with enchantment. Maybe even come up with a way to work bestow that isn't crazy complicated
