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.

The benefit's of Insidious Mist  Flip is that you can turn into it to stop a kill spell at any time you have the mana and card in hand, and that when you attack with it you get to turn it back into Elusive Tormentor  Flip after blockers are declared so you get a free hit through their defenses. You can also block with Elusive Tormentor  Flip and then transform it into Insidious Mist  Flip to stop an attack from a big creature as long as it doesn't have trample.

Yes, everyone is allowed to take more actions before the game moves from the Declare Blockers step to the Combat Damage step. If your opponent casts a removal spell of some sort on Elusive Tormentor  Flip, you're also allowed to respond by activating its ability to transform it into Insidious Mist  Flip to protect it.

Lets say I attack with Insidious Mist  Flip, then when he's not blocked I transform him into Elusive Tormentor  Flip, does the defending player is able to cast some sort of a removal spell like Go for the Throat, kill Elusive Tormentor  Flip, and avoid the damage? If so, what benefit can I get from Insidious Mist  Flip abilities? Thanks!

Hello! I like mill decks too. But in multiplayer... Well, why not?
Some ideas:
1) Keening Stone. Of course mana cost is high but on the other hand it works, doesn't it?
2)Startled Awake  Flip + Trepanation Blade. Cast Awake, then return it transformed, then attach Trepanation Blade to Persistent Nightmare  Flip and attack.
3) Elusive Tormentor  Flip transformed into Insidious Mist + Trepanation Blade.

Problem with Insidious Mist is that it doesn't protect odric from any actual removal, sorcery or instant speed they can always nuke him before combat. I kind of like using Unnatural Endurance to protect things. Also Drana, Liberator of Malakir is awesome with him.

Th3No0tDo0tNewt--Thanks for the upvote. I considered Aegis Angel, but she destroys my mana curve. She's a little expensive for a 5/5, and I can get a permanent indestructible effect from Insidious Mist  Flip. Other suggestions?
