Cryptoplasm Discussion

multimedia on Kess Storm

Hey, very nice.

I suggest more rituals that can make red mana such as Desperate Ritual and Seething Song. Red mana is important because of Past in Flames, being able to cast it and then flash it back in the same turn.

Looters are good with Kess, especially Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, but Looter il-Kor too. Gamble is a good tutor because what ever you discard is most likely going to be an instant of sorcery which can be flashed back. The same can be said about Windfall, Frantic Search and Fact or Fiction all are great draw spells with Kess because they let you draw and put cards in the graveyard. Windfall especially, being able to refill your hand with more spells to cast when storming off.

No Counterspell, Arcane Denial, Swan Song or Negate to protect Kess? I know counterspells aren't the best with her flashback ability, but they do protect her and she's a big target once on the battlefield.

Phyrexian Metamorph seems like a better clone here then Cryptoplasm because it can also copy mana rock artifacts such as Doubling Cube, Gilded Lotus even Ring or a rock an opponent has.

Isochron Scepter is pretty busted with the Storm strategy, lots of good options to use with it.

Good luck with your deck.

Lowenstein Yeah, i had Vapor Snag in before but decided to take it out after addind Scourge of Fleets. River's Rebuke's a good one, could be a good fit, but i'll have to consider it's mana cost.

DallyCat Clever Impersonator could work, but what i like about Cryptoplasm is that i can tranform it in each of my upkeeps if i want, though it's only for creatures.

Thanks for the suggestions! I was also looking into Deprive as it makes a good combo with Halimar Depths.

Copy cat decks are a favorite way to play for me, But I never built a Keiga, the Tide Star deck. Mine is The Mimeoplasm.

For control you think about Giant Oyster, and Control Magic.

For copying, Cryptoplasm, Shapesharer, and Vesuvan Shapeshifter all allow you to make cheap copies and then change their targets when you play the cards you want them to be copies of.

Swap Sigil of the Empty Throne for Luminarch Ascension, trust me, you dont need enchantments to spawn angels and if you have the mana you can spawn as many angels as you like.

Swap Cloud Cover for Karmic Justice. They will still target your stuff if they know it will return to your hand. That way there is a little bit of cover there. I would take Cryptoplasm out. He gets targeted immediately in commander games. Consider another copy spell like Fated Infatuation instead. Seeing you already have Fated Infatuation use Rite of Replication.

I don't like Wrath of God you are running blue, white so use a Supreme Verdict!! If you don't like Supreme Verdict go for a Terminus instead. Wrath of God prevents regeneration but cannot destroy indestructible creatures. Terminus, gets rid of both and can possibly be played for a single mana.

If you need any more advice feel free to ask!

-Orvos- on Pfft...I've been Zubera since before you were born

Clever Impersonator, Phyrexian Metamorph, Cryptoplasm, and the wonderful Clone all give you more zubera and you can pick which one they become. I do agree that you need either Ember-Fist Zubera, Zulaport Cutthroat, or Blood Artist as alternate win cons.

Also Cauldron of Souls requires the same amount of mana to get all your zubera back after they die and is repeatable off of new zubera that you draw so you don't always have to wait for your Immortal Servitude

Mistform Warchief can also help you cast more zubera :D

I really like the idea! I hope it works out!

Keep in mind at this point Cryptoplasm won't be a Cryptoplasm either, it will be a Halimar Excavator with the Cryptoplasm ability, just like Jwari Shapeshifter.

Jesterokej on Shapeshifter question

Lets see if i get i right.. Copy of Halimar Excavator in the sense of power and toughness 1/3 with the same ability of Cryptoplasm in the sense of at the beggining of each upkeep he can become a copy of another target creature (which bypasses the initial ability of Jwari Shapeshifter that only copies only allies)?
