If Kanjuro wants to lure them into a trap and kill them then he would draw someone who wouldn't cause doubts, someone that scabbards unquestionably trust. Choosing Oden is stupid since the scabbards would immediately realize that something's wrong, especially in middle of a fu*king war, especially after seeing Kanjiro's abilities. The scabbards saw Oden die with their own eyes, convincing them that he's alive would be really, really hard. You might be able fooll Kinemon but not all the scabbards together, especially Denjiro who has been shown to be quite smart.
The sooner you start giving rooms for these possibilities :
Revival of the dead
Time skipping, temporary future power ups
Godtier Final enemy
The easier you wouldn't be disappointed when Oda write them

I will just repost what I wrote in private messages :
Dont you guys find it odd that among the fruits we saw in the flashbacks. Only time time no mi , hasn't been eaten by any current living pirate...
We had Barton and Bon clay using their fruits...before we saw the past users of those fruits being Orochi allies
If toki truly died then who ate it?
And why isn't the fruit being used now?
We know fruits are grown again once the users die.
Bari bari no mi and clone clone no mi user were against Oden
While current users are allies to Luffy
Which means if toki died, then the next user will either use the powers against or for Luffy and co's survival!
If toki didn't die, then she will use her powers to help the alliance.
Personally I'd say it's not the real Oden, but hey, this is Oda we're talking about, so I'd say 50/50. And to be frank, there are more reasons and foreshadowings for him to be the real Oden than to be the fake one.
I was thinking it is Yamato with a mythical Tanuki DF, since the Tanuki has the ability of shape shifting just like the Kitsune, but seeing Momo's in that position, cannot help that Sanji will meet them while Momo is in that position.
there are still Fukurokuju who might have such a DF, The Tanuki is knows for his big testicles that he can use for every thing i can see Oda switched that to the long ears.
another possibility is for sure Kanjuru's painting , or Onimaru , or even maybe Hiyori herself has a DF.
