Ethereal Ambush Discussion

BMHKain on Help wanted for Kadena Morph/Manifest... ...

Apologies for the previous dupli-comment. The server was a bit off at the time...

Well, as an update to the deck: at least we can say Volrath, the Shapestealer is out, & Ezuri 2.0 will be staying for a very long while...

Also, being able to BOUNCE Mantfests to your hand w/ Temur Sabertooth , Words of Wind , even Scroll of Fate allows you a choice for Manifestation. While killing the ones you DON'T own via Thieving Amalgam is like a perfect vengeance; even cards like Qarsi Deceiver , Temur War Shaman , Whisperwood Elemental , even Ghastly Conscription , Ethereal Ambush , & even Write into Being .

Also adding Cloudform , We have an amount of 115 cards in so far; or 114 if nobody wants me adding such a card. From there, we have 2 things left; the 3rd Question about what helps Creatures; Morphs/Megamorphs/Manifest all apply to these Bylaws. & since all start as Faceless 2/2 Colorless Face-Down Token Creatures, the question now is: In Colors, what would be good for both , cards, & those w/ eith 2 Power and/or 2 Toughness, or lower even?

From there it's the first, & last question: What to Cut?!

I'll proceed in removing some of these things; they've been established anyway. :)

So, what cards that can support basically any Morphs/Megamorphs/Manifests (Colorless 2/2 Face Down Tokens.) can help big here?

I'm done for now; I'll just remove some things as they're accomplished...

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!

Do you have the 20 enemy-colored cards from KTK/FRF? In each set of 4 there is 1 common, 2 uncommons, 1 rare (common is from FRF, rest from KTK).

R/W: Highspire Mantis, Ride Down, Deflecting Palm, War Flare

G/B: Death Frenzy, Kin-Tree Invocation, Rakshasa Deathdealer, Grim Contest

U/G: Icefeather Aven, Secret Plans, Sagu Mauler, Ethereal Ambush

R/U: Winterflame, Master the Way, Mindswipe, Cunning Strike

W/B: Chief of the Edge, Chief of the Scale, Utter End, Harsh Sustenance.

There is also the cycle of the 6-costed KTK Commons with a morph for 5 mana. Ponyback Brigade, Abomination of Gudul, 1 for every other clan.

Hope I could help show you some more cycles.

No, Manifest is not the same thing as drawing a card. Only abilities that specifically say "draw" count as drawing.

I'm basically building the same deck right now. You've made a lot of the same decisions I've ether already made or am about to make. I still have a lot of morphs to cut in mine, though. Since Prophet of Kruphix is gone, I recommend replacing her with Broodhatch Nantuko, Quicksilver Dragon, Ghostfire Blade, Jeskai Infiltrator or Riptide Entrancer.

I also like Ethereal Ambush, Wildcall, and Formless Nurturing. Not sure how I feel about Arashin War Beast. It feels like a weak card, but one that would get chumped a lot and not removed, because it's so weak, generating value.

NICE! You, sir, are my hero.

I started playing in Khans, and I've played morph decks in standard ever since. 4-Color Facedown fun stuff, Mighty Morphin Temur Rangers, Simic Morph Mastery, and by far the best iteration, Bant Morph Master. I'm in the process of building a morph commander deck, but I decided to cut white in favor of Ezuri, Claw of Progress's synergy with 2/2s. Many of the cards you go over are on my short list of includes or auto-includes, but I feel like you missed a couple.

I'm pretty sure I'm missing a lot, but I'm still building, this is mostly from notes right now. Because of Ezuri, I'm also going to run Sage of Hours as an infinite turn combo. Have fun playing this!

For a budget deck, I'm thinking it is what it is. Although, it can be way better. There are cards that aren't even that expensive that can help out this deck. Harbinger of the Tides and Kiora, Master of the Depths are just to name a couple. As well as Ethereal Ambush for some late game threats and it's a great card against control. There isn't much synergy here with Halimar Tidecaller. If anything, you can go to a Bant Awaken strategy if you want to use her. For budget, you get what you pay for and with standard being expensive, I can't really give you good budget ideas other than those previously stated. Sorry. Good luck. Maybe Riddlebox can give you more input. I don't have much experience playing on a budget.
