Peer Pressure seems pretty situational at best and pretty bad at worst. Umbral Mantle is a strict upgrade to help with your twiddle combo. unless you play against a lot of mono red Blue Elemental Blast is terrible, red being the worst color in the format that ele blast will whiff a lot i would run something more like these as budget replacements Overwhelming Denial or Narset's Reversal Foil Tale's End Spell Pierce <--- all decent budget counters, narset's reversal and tale's end have a lot of extra uses. Serendib Sorcerer seems ok, but not sure it fits with the rest of your theme. Chromeshell Crab seems a bit overcosted here for this effect and anyone that play against this deck will know in no time what that morph is as you only have 2 morph creatures in the deck and you would likely never play the alchemist face down.

opponent has Chromeshell Crab face down. It is my turn. I play Ravenous Chupacabra , It enters the battlefield. My opponent flips Chromeshell Crab face up targeting his Chromeshell Crab and my Ravenous Chupacabra exchanging control of cards. do I get the enter the battlefield effect of ravenous chupacbra or does my opponent steal the effect with the card.

I am a fan of the mechanic focused theme this year. I think all of the chosen mechanics were great/interesting choices as well.
Who else is super excited for Morph? My Quicksilver Dragon , Chromeshell Crab , and Ixidron will finally have a home! I have toyed around with decks using that mechanic for years, but they always lacked enough support to prevent the deck from being clunky.
Hopefully it will be Temur, but I'd settle for Simic. I think a cool ability for the new morph lord would be a reverse Ixidor, Reality Sculptor where you can activate him/her to turn a morph creature face down again.
Also, I wouldn't worry about mechanic specific cards like Dream Chisel or Catalyst Stone . Those cards are so unique/niche. WotC would be crazy not to reprint them in decks dedicated to their respective mechanics...though I have been wrong before.

Chromeshell Crab 's ability is a control-changing effect. When a player leaves the game, one of the things that happens is that all effects that give that player control over objects end, which would include the one from the Crab. At that point, control of your Apocalypse Hydra would revert to whoever controlled it prior to the Crab's control-changing effect, in this case you.
If they had somehow put the Hydra on the battlefield directly under their control (not a control-changing effect), it would be exiled when they leave the game.
The Hydra would only go to your graveyard if it was somehow killed or sacrificed during all of this.

So the scenario goes, someone played a Chromeshell Crab face down and morphed it, taking control of my Apocalypse Hydra . The turn came back around to me. I drew an Insurrection tapped out and played it. So, I took possession of everything, proceeded to swing with everything but a blocker. I took out the opponent that took control of my apocalypse hydra and one other opponent. We were playing commander so I still had one opponent left. The question is since I took out the player who took possession of my hydra, would I regain control of it or would it go to the grave yard?
