Cloning Phage

Can someone copy Phage without losing the game? Whether it's simply clone, or the one that copies creatures from the graveyard.

sure, if the clone is cast from the hand you will be safe

so Clone or Body Double are safe when cast from hand, Cackling Counterpart is not (even when cast from the hand because the token was not cast)

Thanks. That clears things up

Note that this only applies to creatures that enter the battlefield as a copy.  If a Lazav, Dimir Mastermind copies phage then it doesn't matter if he was cast from hand.  The trigger won't apply.
So then, something that has an activated ability to clone while on the field would trigger the ability?

it depends if something enters the battlefield or just changes what it looks like

Dimir Doppelganger would not trigger
Back from the Brink would trigger

List a specific card if you can. Normally abilities that allow a 'clone' would not trigger the ETB.
