Creature — Shapeshifter

At the beginning of your upkeep, you may have Cryptoplasm become a copy of another target creature. If you do, Cryptoplasm gains this ability.

Good thoughts The_Fallen_Duke.

I like the faster land suggestions. The biggest reason I’m using Dimir Aqueduct is Profane Command . I’ve found the extra mana (when it finally gets there) useful when facing “Indestructable” creatures or need to remove that last point of life. The versatility of Profane Command has been really useful. Faster lands like you suggest definitely might be worth trying though.

As to Bloodline Keeper  Flip, the thought here is that the Cryptoplasm s and Phyrexian Metamorph s give you options for whichever “real” monster you get in your hand first. Get the one Grave Titan , copy that and mob. Get one of the three Vampire Nighthawk s, copy that early on, play Bloodline Keeper  Flip, copy Bloodline Keeper  Flip, and mob. Or if your opponent has particularly beefy creatures, you copy their stuff till you board-wipe, having nickeled-and-dimed their life total the whole game.

We like that you're playing Keiga; she's our favorite mono-blue commander! We'd really recommend adding Blade of Selves. Especially in multi-player commander, this card is absolutely nuts when attached to Keiga.

Some other ideas we have: Cryptoplasm, Thalakos Deceiver, Fool's Demise, Mirror Mockery, Legacy's Allure, Charisma and Fated Infatuation. In case you're interested in our entire deck, you can check it out here: Your Soul, IS MINE!

Hope all this helps. Have fun brewing and playing.

Einfach mal ein paar Ideen

Leveler für Laboratory Maniac + einmal karten ziehen Spellbook

Cryptoplasm Dominate etwas billiger, als die teuren copy spells

Mind Unbound

um den commander mehr zu nutzen vllt, Paradox Engine + billige spells wie Ponder +High Tide oder infinite mana wäre lit

Ich glaube du brauchst Mana... Solemn Simulacrum immer gut. ich weiß nicht ob die Kreaturen und das auf die Hand geben gut ist vielleicht sind richtige boardwhipes besser und du schützt dich mit günstigeren removal spells Paradox Engine und dein CMDR geben dir die Karten. Propaganda immer gut: Skullclamp

Mana Solemn Simulacrum Everflowing Chalice Dreamscape Artist hast ja die Karten High Tide

Consecrated Sphinx vllt für eine der Kreaturen Temple Bell + Consecrated Sphinx

Paradox engine und Consecrated Sphinx kosten glaub ich was...

Falco101 I need to say that Shapeshifters do not inherently have all creature types. Creatures with the ability Changeling, which so far only appears on Shapeshifters from the Lorwyn and Morningtide sets, have all creature types--compare Amoeboid Changeling with Cryptoplasm. If a Shapeshifter enters as a copy of another creature, or becomes a copy of another creature, it will typically have the types of the copied creature. A Cryptoplasm doesn't start off will all creature types.

Hey friend! I think the weakest links are:

1.Nissa, Steward of Elements (pws don’t survive long enough to make their investment worth it unless it a dedicated deck for it),

  1. Cryptoplasm because UG capitalizes most on etb creatures meaning he won’t always be useful unless your meta is ripe for fatties to copy like avacyn or whatever)

  2. Thassa, God of the Sea. You aren’t Voltron so the unblockablility isn’t the most effective here.

  3. Crawlspace feels like a bad propaganda to me, unless you have a ton of token strats in your meta.

Hope that helps!

Also, nothing in your example targets.

Cryptoplasm targets something that it copies, and remains on the battlefield as a copy (and can still target new things).

Clone enters the battlefield as a copy of something, without targeting, and remains on the battlefield as a copy.

Fated Infatuation targets something and makes a token that's a copy of that thing. The token remains on the battlefield but Fated Infatuation is put into your graveyard as it's an instant.

Mind's Eye you are playing blue green for gods sake, Brainstorm you have no good ways to shuffle plus the commander says the first spell so you will most likely draw what you put on top, Mirror Match most player win through some short of combo, and it is too expensive, Thunderfoot Baloth does nothing for you because the deck is hardly explosive -> replace with Rampaging Baloths, Mind's Dilation does nothing most of the time, Cryptoplasm sucks. ez
