Artisan of Forms Discussion

I was playing around with a giant list a little while ago, and the conclusion that I came to is that Jeskai Giants (Jeskai Jiants?) led by Ruhan of the Fomori is the best build, since you can use on-board tricks like Shapesharer , Vesuvan Shapeshifter , Renegade Doppelganger , Artisan of Forms , Arcane Artisan , Cryptoplasm , and Call to the Kindred along with copy effects like Quasiduplicate to skip over playing a bunch of mediocre Giants, instead copying the good 6+ mana ones the turn they come down. The nuts is copying an Arcane Artisan , and have it become your insane giant in response.

Maybe instead of Phantasmal Image you can use Jwari Shapeshifter , Mirror Image , Cackling Counterpart or Quasiduplicate .

Sadly Phantasmal Image is rare because it's a 2-cost Clone that can copy an opponent's creature. The others are: Artisan of Forms , Metamorphic Alteration , Shapesharer and arguably Mirror Mockery .

Kogarashi on Do clone cards copy counters ...

It will not copy the counters.

The copiable values of an object are its name, mana cost, color indicator, card type, subtype, supertype, rules text, power, toughness, and loyalty. These values are usually copied exactly as printed, though changes due to other copy effects, face-down status, and some effects that set a creature's power and toughness (such as "as (the object) enters the battlefield" or "as (the object) is turned face up") can be copied.

Counters and objects attached to an object are not copied.

That being said, Heroes' Bane does enter the battlefield with four +1/+ counters on it, so as long as the copy is entering the battlefield as a copy, it will gain those initial four counters. So Clone or Altered Ego will get those four counters (plus Altered Ego will get a number of additional counters based on what you set for X when casting it). Artisan of Forms , on the other hand, will not get Heroes' Bane 's initial four counters as it wouldn't be entering the battlefield as a copy, and would thus have P/T of 0/0.

So i have Artisan of Forms and Quiet Contemplation on the battlefield and my enemy has a [[card:birds of paradise] and another creature. I cast Aqueous Form on Artisan and both artisan of forms' and Quiet contemplation's triggers go on the stack. If i resolve first artisan of forms' one making it a copy of birds of paradise, can i tap it for the 1 generic mana i need for the Quiet Contemplation trigger?

That's why I'm here. The deck seems pretty fun, I'm curious to see where you take it.

O, & Artisan of Forms is a card, BTW

I recommend more lands 36 is normally a good number with about 8-10 accelerator cards like the afore mentioned elves, cards like Kiora's Follower also count towards this.

since you are playing 2 colors I recommend exciting lands like Alchemist's Refuge and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx also beware of Botanical Sanctum as on t4 its a guildgate which isn't terrible but there are far better lands, especially when you aren't pressured to play heaps of dual lands.

since you are playing Infinite Reflection I recommend Biovisionary

I would recomend removing the following:

Jace's Phantasm: whis deck dosen't seem particular graveyard heavy thus i think this will just be dissapointing.

Nissa, Nature's Artisan: too expensive and dosent do enough.

Wall of Frost: I hate walls

Artisan of Forms: I counted 6 targeting spells this wont be consistent enough

Pulse of Murasa: use Skullwinder and Eternal Witness

sorry if this appears twice i forgot the double brackets
