Makeshift Mannequin/Dredge targets

So I've seen a dredge like list that could mill something like 20 cards t2.

Now I think that that might be too fast without dread return, but it's an a base for considering one amazing version of a creature recursion.

The question I want to present is what targets do you think are good in extended? The fact that makeshift is instant allows for Emrakul and Progentius to be targets. Iona could work against mono colored and not having to worry about the whole gy shuffling.

Sphinx of steel wind out the sideboard? The primus dude that destroys noncreature permenant on etb and has persist(to get around the mannequin counter flaw)?

It's just something I wanted to open to discussion and hopefully get these boards some sort of attention.

Terrastadon isn't too shabby. I assume you're using Renegade Doppleganger as well, so having two massive elephants in a turn seems decent, and lets you keep them under wraps. Hellkite overlord is the quickest clock you'll find. The problem with Eldrazi, is that if you mill them when you don't have mannawuin, then you lose the yard and go back to square one.

Iona isn't that strong, since doran will have removal in 2 colours. Control decks will be able to bounce or jace bounce it, failing that they will have B or W removal, so you can't name a colour properly. 5cc, well I don't need to explain how many option they have in terms of targetting it.

Hellkite seems good though, since if you have doppleganger out and don't need him as a crab, you get 16 points of hasty damage, plus whatever you can pump......

I'm pretty sure you cannot Makeshift Mannequin Progenitus. I know you can Mannequin Emrakul, however.

Renegade Doppleganger seems pretty good, especially with hasty creatures, as mentioned above.

My favorite use for Makeshift Mannequin is with utility creatures like Shriekmaw and Fulminator Mage, but if you are trying to reanimate, having a creature with a form of shroud seems to be the best idea.
 you can makeshift emrakul, why couldn't you makeshift progenitus? Progenitus has protection from counters....so would he drop the counter?! sweet tech!

I'm not sure what the deck would be just yet. It'd want green to have acceleration, and probably fauna shaman. Black for makeshift and ooze. Don't know if I actually want blue in the deck. So it might be b/g with vengvines. Oona's prowler might be a way to discard at instant speed. It's just an idea at the moment.

Emrakul - When ~ is put into a graveyard from anywhere, shuffle it and your graveyard into your library.

^So this hits the bin, then triggers.

Progenitus - If ~ would be put into a graveyard from anywhere, shuffle it into your library instead.

^ProG is a replacement effect, so it never hits the graveyard for you to reanimate.

Should probably have read progenitus. Oh well.

I'm really wondering if there's anything to be done with this idea that would beat doran, jund, or fae. even if just a decent percent against two would be nice.
