Nice deck! I've been brewing a morph deck too and found your deck while googling for ideas. You had some cards down I hadn't thought about, so thanks for that!

I'm using Atraxa, Praetors' Voice as the Commander, because I really wanted to use again Mastery of the Unseen since it rotated out of Standard, and black has some powerful cards too, like Ghastly Conscription. I'm making use of the proliferate too with planeswalkers and cards like Gavony Township.

Here're some cards I've considered that you don't have on your list.

Backslide and Master of the Veil to reuse your morph tricks.

Whisperwood Elemental is incredibly strong, and can give you an advantage over board wipes.

To make your morphs cheap there's Cloud Key, Planar Gate, Helm of Awakening, and in your colors Herald of Kozilek. And definitely Qarsi Deceiver.

Illusionary Mask probably has the most convoluted card text of all time, but it has great synergy with morph.

If you'd consider other colorless lands, some you might look at are Ancient Tomb, Temple of the False God, Tomb of the Spirit Dragon, and Shrine of the Forsaken Gods.

You can take advantage of your face-down creatures by using All Is Dust and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon to wipe out your opponents.

Also, Ritual of Subdual shuts down your opponents' spells and lets you beat them down with morphs.

I think most of these cards unfortunately do to little. I had Aven Farseer in there, but it got outclassed by the time it got bigger.
Backslide seems interesting. Pondering what to swap out for it

You beat me to the punch in creating a Morph deck! Im still almost ready to put mine on TappedOut, itll probably be a non-Commander deck and will have some other, different creatures w/ and w/o morph ability. You probably are aware of these, but I dont see any of them on your list: Backslide, Revealing Wind, Soul Summons, Write into Being, Ethereal Ambush, might consider a couple of those to go in here, and Witness of the Ages & Proteus Machine for a couple of artifact creatures w/ morph.

Aven Farseer is a great addition to any morph deck!

I have a morph EDH also, with Ixidor, Reality Sculptor as my commander. I'm jealous that you're able to run the green and blue/green morph enchantments! I see you already considered Cloudform, but what about Write into Being, Training Grounds, Backslide, and so on? In my deck, I tried to fit all of the pieces into the theme. Here's a link if you're interested: Illusory Ixidor
