Ethereal Ambush Discussion

Boza on If I steal a manifested …

Ixidron does not manifest creatures. It just simply turns them face down. if the creature was not manifested or has the morph/megamorph ability, you will not be able to turn it face up.

So, instead, lets say you steal with Yasova Dragonclaw a facedown creature put on the battlefield with the effect of Ethereal Ambush. In that case, you will get to keep the creature until the end of turn - it is the same permanent, so the same duration of the control-changing effect applies to it.

Dragon's Eye Savants - I really don't think this is a good card. Yeah, it morphs...for cheap...but it sucks.

I do like Obscuring AEther , and it should probably go main-deck. I don't think you need to worry about including Helm of Awakening . I almost always like to include Zendikar Resurgent in a deck if it can run it. You should consider doing so here.

As I've mentioned before, I'd consider cutting the tutors unless there is just absolutely something in your deck that must tutor up each game.

I think Ethereal Ambush is expendable. I'd rather run another removal spell, or one of the other suggestions above.

I'm not quite sure how Guardian Project will work in this deck. Does a morph share the same name as the next morph that enters play? And when you turn the morph card face up, it doesn't re-enter the battlefield, so you wouldn't draw a card in that instance, either. Better to run Zendikar Resurgent .

Delay seems like a rather temporary solution to a problem. Perhaps a better counterspell would be warranted there?

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!

Bovine073 on Fate Reforged Draft Cube (KTK/KTK/FRF)

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.

Gidgetimer on Does Manifest Triggers Draw

Horizon Chimera

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.
