"Not worth a rare slot"

It can be whatever you like what's on the battlefield!
So you can either copy a card under your control from which you know your opponent hates or copy one of his/hers to either match the power or send a legendary away.

And for it to be non-targeting gives it only more possibilities.
For example: send away a Progenitus your opponent controls.
Or use it against sliver overlord in a sliver deck to take over the overlord and after that all other slivers.

"and it lacks changeling."

Have you actually paid attention to what the card does???
For changeling: just copy a card with changeling.
Otherwise just view it as a changeling that has found a form to stick to.

With Phyrexian Metamorph out, I give my final goodbyes to Clone.

Leyline of Anticipation and it can copy and kill off a transformed Gideon Jura.
Can it copy transformed man-lands as well?

@Little: The clone will remain the same even after its original target changes shape.

Question. If you make a token that's a copy of Clone (say, with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker), does the token end up as a copy of whatever the original's copying, or do you get to choose again?

@Ragna: Not what I was asking. The question is, if I use something to create a copy of Clone, does that copy automatically copy whatever Clone was copying, or can I choose a new creature for the copy to copy?
...I'm not sure that was clearer. Oh well.

@littlebeast: A creature that becomes a copy of another creature doesn't keep the ability to become copies of things unless the card says it does (you'll notice that some of the other copy-type creatures have a "gains this ability" clause if they can keep changing.) So if you dropped a Clone and made it a copy of something, any copies you make of the Clone will also be copies of the first thing you copied.

The only way to get repeatable copies of whatever you want by using Kiki-Jiki with this is to play this and not make it copy anything. You'll need to have some sort of static toughness-boosting effect like Glorious Anthem or Leyline of Vitality to keep it alive though. Or you could use Quicksilver Gargantuan instead. Then your copies will have the ability to enter as copies of something.

Amazing ! In every situation, in particular in a contest of green or white fatty-decks versus black-blue decks!

Kills Thrun, the Last Troll. And in blue, conveniently. Anything else is a bonus.

@ SgtSwaggr

There are 3 things wrong with that statement. First of all its 2011....
Second of all Phyrexian Metamorph stays an artifact. Meaning if it copies a creature its the most vulnerable type of permanent in the game!
And third! Phyrexian Metamorph isn't going to get reprinted in a primary set either Ever, OR with in a few years.

There was a time when Clone was current in the same set as Vesuvan Doppelganger. It was always fun to put down a Doppelganger one turn, then next turn put down a Clone as a copy of the Doppelganger. Only ever once did I shoot the moon and get eight "doppelgangers" out by Cloning the Vesuvans, but man was it awesome to see when it happened.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
