So, is Saheeli Copycat viable now?

Maybe it becomes viable after today's announcement, we'll have to see how the format develops without Hogaak.

I am currently playing a creature-based version that involves some other combos but I am not sure it fits here, it has the saheeli combo in it but it plays very differently than the established lists, so I am unsure if it fits here or if I should create a post in the Developing subforum. This is my current list:
Edit: Forget my idea, Looting just got banned :D

Well, my current list is as follows:

It is mostly focused on Planeswalkers and value plays with Felidar Guardian.

One time, in late game, no kidding I top decked a Felidar Guardian, which blinked Oath of Nissa, which gave me the Saheeli I needed for the win.

Hi, here's what I am playing.

Image

Out of all the decks I've played so far during my 10 years of Magic I like this deck the best!
There is so much synergy between all the cards, you can just win on the spot or grind your opponent down.
All the creatures are very good copy targets for Saheeli, all the PWs and creatures are very good blink targets for Felidar. T3feri protects the combo, stalls the game or bounces Snap for value, Felidar can reset Batterskull...
My results so far with the deck are pretty good is well: 28-5-2 at FNMs and Tournament Practice & 2-Player-Queues on MTGO. Atm I am pretty much 100% satisfied with my mainboard.
I'd like to ask all of you for help to build the best possible SB for this deck. The decks I need to consider most imho in the current/foreseeable meta are Burn, Jund, Whirza, G Tron (Once Upon a Time is scary!), UW Control, Dredge, and Valakut/Amulet Titan.
My SB candidates are (CMC order):
EE, Surgical, Pithing Needle, Dispel, Ceremonious Rejection, RiP, Auriok Champion, Celestial Purge, Disdainful Stroke, Flashfreeze, Dovin's Veto, Sword of Truth and Justice, Timely Reinforcements, Wear/Tear, Pillage, Geist of Saint Traft, Ashiok, Anger, Shatterstorm

I have been wanting to test SFM in Copycat, too. Glad to hear you have been getting good results.

I agree that this deck is at its best when Felidar has many good targets for its ability outside of Saheeli. In this case, I get the synergy with Batterskull. I guess you have your reasons, but why only 3 SFM?

Also, Force of Negation has got to be on of the best cards here, allowing you to exhaust your opponent when combined with SFM. I always try to run 4 when using it, but at least 3 should be included I think.
