Identity Thief

Neat trick, Identity Thief can attack, exile your Kefnet, and hit for a bunch.

Hi sonnet666,

I think I should specify sets before we go further. I'm definitely down to get a trade going though...

I have:

I'm interested in as many of these as we can potentially trade for, thanks!

One of my friends runs Medomai as their commander and it's one of my favorite decks to play with and against. I have a few suggestions to better your deck.

  1. You have two Etherium Sculptors

  2. One of my favorite combos in a Medomai the Ageless deck is the ability to take as many extra turns as you want with Identity Thief

  3. You have a ton of mana in the deck so I can suggest cutting it down a little and replacing with a few tutors or other cards maybe? Enlightened Tutor, Idyllic Tutor, and Mystical Tutor.

  4. Who doesn't like taking extra turns outside of combat? Things like Beacon of Tomorrows, Part the Waterveil, and even Lighthouse Chronologist.

  5. Maybe some control/anti-aggro stuff like Ghostly Prison and Propaganda

  6. Who doesn't like to play Telepathy.

I know these may not be the most budget friendly suggestions but I'm sure you can find some nice things with effects similar to the cards mentioned..

also, +1 because <3 Medomai

darklinglion398 on Mono Blue Control... Fast Enough for standard?

When Thing in the Ice  Flip enters the battlefield it gets the ice counters, and Identity Thief etb' s as itself and transforms when it attacks so since it's not entering the battlefield at that time only transforming, so no ice counters. Then Thing in the Ice  Flip doesn't say that it flips when the last counter is removed it states, "then if there are no ice counters flip it" you could be right on that tho since it does have the word "then" in there but people I have asked seem to agree that's what would happen, I'll try and find a ruling on it to further clarify.

It is admittedly super dumb but Identity Thief doesn't get etb triggers when it becomes a copy, so every time it attacks its a Thing in the Ice  Flip flip, highly impractical but I feel like it would be funny. Also would essentially bounce Torrential Gearhulk if you made a copy of it so you would have an etb trigger at the end of every turn that the thief attacks

Idk if anyone said it yet but in mono-blue I've always thought Identity Thief and Thing in the Ice  Flip seemed super troll mode but also super hilarious if it could be pulled off.

Aftertherevolution on Gonti Revolt

only tested against AI and some casual modern decks.

Struggled against a flyer deck for a bit, but was able to hold off until Gonti snagged Wingmate Roc, and then with Identity Thief I was able to keep bringing it back to the battlefield generating more 3/4 birds.

Seems important to get Gonti going early to fill in the gaps of this deck with some of the opponents own medicine.
