Stolen Identity - 4UU
Put a token onto the battlefield that's a copy of target artifact or creature.
Cipher (Then you may exile this spell card encoded on a creature you control. Whenever that creature deals combat damage to a player, its controller may cast a copy of the encoded card without paying its mana cost.)
Revealed today in an article by Dave Humphreys on MagicTheGathering.com, Stolen Identity can create a supply of Clone creature tokens. Although Stolen Identity is double the casting cost of Cackling Counterpart, it can target artifacts and be potentially used more than twice.
In the right deck you'll be able to create two tokens with Stolen Identity on the turn you play it (one from casting the spell, and one when the encoded creature deals combat damage to a player).
Like Call of the Nightwing and Whispering Madness, you'll want to encode Stolen Identity onto an unblockable creature such as Elusive Krasis or Tormented Soul. From there you'll able to replicate the best creature or artifact on the battlefield, be it Necropolis Regent or Armada Wurm.
Because Stolen Identity copies creatures, it may help you win the game by acquiring four Biovisionary.
An important thing to note about Stolen Identity is that it's able to destroy your opponent's creatures. Thanks to the Legend rule, you'll be able take out an opponent's Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Isperia, Supreme Judge, or Trostani, Selesnya's Voice that's been giving you a headache.
