If i have The Mimeoplasm enter as Elusive Tormentor  Flip can i use the discard effect to transform the Mimeoplasm into Insidious Mist ? If yes, does it lose it the counters it got from the second creature?

Your deck gives me a chance to suggest a card the I've wanted to use, but never quite seen the right setup for, but more on that in a bit...

Conventional wisdom is that you shouldn't mix creatures with infect and those without, outside of mana dorks. It is also that you shouldn't rely on auras, as they give your opponent a 2-for-1. Invisible Stalker though will wear any aura quite happily since it has hexproof, it also can't be blocked. A card like Slippery Scoundrel might also be ok, though 10 permanents is a lot. Neither of these were the card I mentioned in my opening, that card is Elusive Tormentor  Flip this card is interesting because it transforms into a 0/1 hexproof, indestructible, can't be blocked creature and can then be flipped back to deliver the 4 damage. It doesn't lose any auras attached when it transforms, so that means a 4/4 infect and the gag is you can transform it back to Insidious Mist in response to your opponents removal.

There is also a decent draw spell with proliferate Tezzeret's Gambit and proliferate on a stick Thrummingbird, both of these are worth consideration. 27 land is a lot, 23-5 would be fine and this gives you more slots. Your also wanting to play control, so Temple of Deceit or Fetid Pools is a lot better than Submerged Boneyard, Halimar Depths might also be worth considering. Moving on, a pump spell might be a good idea Virulent Swipe or Supernatural Stamina for example.

There are 2 cards in modern that wreck an infect plan Melira, Sylvok Outcast and Solemnity , so be aware and don't let these resolve... That's it from me, good luck and have fun brewing your deck.

bradtheimpaler13 On second thought I think Oona's Prowler may be a better choice. It's slightly cheaper and it replaces Elusive Tormentor  Flip as a discard outlet. Thanks for the help anway.

Is Elusive Tormentor  Flip legal in this deck? The back side is blue. I know it doesn't have any blue mana symbols, But I think it color identity is still blue. But awesome deck.

No. Color identity includes all colors the card can be, like multicolored cards (Hostage Taker), double-face cards (like the aforementioned Elusive Tormentor  Flip), and off-color activated abilities (Harbor Bandit) all have the same color identity (in this case U/B). That said, talk to your playgroup and see if it’s ok with them

I was brewing up a Vampire tribal deck using Edgar Markov as a commander. I was hoping to use Elusive Tormentor  Flip in that deck. But if I'm not way off base the flip side of Elusive Tormentor  Flip is considered blue. BUT the mana symbol doesn't show up on the card. So...Can I play it in the deck?

borosdrunkard Feels nice not to be alone! Diabolic Tutor might just do the work due to its real cost and effectiveness. I'm kind of worried not getting a win condition and this card does it for me. Do you think Elusive Tormentor  Flip or Blood Artist can make the difference when it comes to the final battles?? I had thought of Grave Titan or Mikaeus, the Unhallowed (the last one being a little too expensive)
