Phyrexian Metamorph Discussion

mistarilledawn on Mulling over 'Drotha

2 days ago

My favorite combo with my Muldrotha deck is centered around Titania, Protector of Argoth . Using Viscera Seer , World Shaper , and Sylvan Safekeeper , you sac all your lands, get a crap ton of 5/3s, then sac World Shaper to do it all over again. Then you just cast World Shaper again with Muldrotha and hope nobody has any responses, rinse, and repeat.

For even more value, add Living Death and/or Phyrexian Metamorph (or any copier), so you can get two World Shapers out without necessarily having to have Muldrotha to recast them.

All those cards should definitely be considerations for your deck if they aren't already, regardless of them being used to combo or not.

Hope that helps :)

It seems like you have a lot of just and, animar shines when you turn it into more of a storm deck. Consider Beast Whisperer , Phyrexian Metamorph , Kiri-Onna , Imperial Recruiter , Dark-Dweller Oracle , Coiling Oracle , maybe Prowling Serpopard and Siren Stormtamer for protection.

Daggerfella on Have you come to crack riddles?

id advise Muddle the Mixture over having Foil , you can use it to "tutor" or in this case Transmute it for many cards in ur deck such as Neurok Stealthsuit, Sapphire Medallion, Swift Boots, Thought Vessel, Empyrial Plate, Shape Sharer, mana crypt, pact of negation (great if win by combo), mana vault, expedition map and sol ring

also if you can get Phyrexian Metamorph as it copies creatures and artifacts including mana rocks like Thran Dynamo or Gilded Lotus.

Temple of the False God is like a poor mans Soul ring except it needs 5 lands out including itself for it to tap for 2 colorless mana.

also Ponder , Portent and Brainstorm might go good in the deck as well

triproberts12 on Sun Quan, Lord of Wufect

I think what this deck wants is some ways to make infinite mana. The one that would be best, in my mind is Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter . You'll want more mana rocks, although I think you want more anyway, but with that combo, you can power out Blightsteel or proliferate out the table with Contagion Engine , Contagion Clasp , or Viral Drake . You'll want the typical Muddle the Mixture to grab the combo, and artifact tutors such as Whir of Invention , Fabricate , and Tezzeret the Seeker can get your Engine and Clasp, as well.

Another classic mono-blue combo is Pili-Pala + Grand Architect . I like that one here, since you want to power up your blue and artifact infect creatures, anyway.

Next is Palinchron . You're already running High Tide and Caged Sun , so that's one option to go infinite. Deadeye Navigator can also combo with Palinchron.

A cheaper alternative is the old Pauper Peregrine Drake combo. You use Ghostly Flicker , Illusionist's Stratagem , or Displace to blink Drake, Great Whale , or Palinchron with Mnemonic Wall , Archaeomancer , or Salvager of Secrets , returning the instant each time.

To tie all of these combos together, Merchant Scroll and Mystical Tutor can get the Instants or Whir of Invention .

I think you could use a lot more mana rocks, as well. I would start with Sky Diamond , Mind Stone , Worn Powerstone , Thran Dynamo , and Thought Vessel .

I'm also surprised not to see Corrupted Conscience in here. Love that card.

As for cuts, I'm not really sure what Helm of the Host is doing here. It's not your commander you want more of, it's infect creatures. For that kind of mana, you could just kick Rite of Replication . Not really sure what Telepathy is for. If anything, you don't want the table to know when the infect player is a danger. Borrowing 100,000 Arrows has always been a pet card of mine, but making the kind of mana you are, you want X spells. Blue Sun's Zenith , Open Into Wonder , and Pull from Tomorrow are you friends.

Since you're limited on infect creatures, you might want normal clone effects. Phantasmal Image is cheap. Gigantoplasm can copy an infect creature and one-shot people, Quicksilver Gargantuan to a lesser extent. Phyrexian Metamorph is flexible. Vizier of Many Faces has recursion. Stunt Double can surprise the table by speeding up the clock just before your turn. Fated Infatuation comes with card selection. Mirror of the Forebears survives board wipes. Cackling Counterpart , Stolen Identity , Quasiduplicate , and Saheeli's Artistry can all copy creatures multiple times.

NetholonTheArchmage on Goatmum goes EPIC

1 week ago

A really nice decklist you've put together here, it's worthy of the great goat-mother! I love all the weird litle synergies between the cards. Exspecially the combination of Oblivion Ring , Worldpurge and Barren Glory is just phenomenal, as Barren Glory is simply one of the funniest alternate wincons ever printed!

For the suggestions there's only one card I think would fit in this deck perfectly: Clever Impersonator can be everything you want and is just a better Phyrexian Metamorph in my opinion. You might also be running booth for even more fun ;) Simply imagine to have 3x Assemble the Legion in combination with Paradox Haze ...

Maybe you are also interested in having a look at my own Zedruu-decklist: Zedruu, Enlightened Master :)

HorseFist on Leon Sphinx, Junior

2 weeks ago

legendofa's comment blew my mind so much that I couldn't really comment back until now!

I had no idea one could knowingly go against the Legendary rule, as if they had never heard of it, and combo by attempting to duplicate a commander creature!! Makes me wonder what other stuff I could get away with if I pretend that I'm unaware of certain rules...

So anyway, I went ahead and had a Phyrexian Metamorph sent to me, so I need to add that and a few others in the a.m.

Lanzo493 on Animarniacs!!!

I agree with the above comment to include Primordial Sage . You can't have too many of those effects (I mean, you even have Garruk's Packleader ). Also, you have Man-o'-War , but I'd like to let you know that there are 2 other creatures which do the same job for less mana: Shrieking Drake and Dream Stalker . Also, put Rattleclaw Mystic back in the deck. He morphs for 0 with your commander at 3 counters, and goes infinite with Cloudstone Curio and any other morph or artifact creature. His unmorph cost also nets you extra mana. He's fantastic.

If you're up for it, I have a couple of suggestions for combo lines. I can tell you like combos, because of the cards you have in your deck, so here's some ways to make winning more reliable.

Fierce Empath --> Brutalizer Exarch --> Spellseeker / Trophy Mage

Now Spellseeker --> Weird Harvest --> Ancestral Statue + Walking Ballista / Purphoros, God of the Forge and you win on the spot

Or Trophy Mage --> Cloudstone Curio Because who doesn't want the curio every game? Throw in either Ulamog and you can kill everything.

If you have Imperial Recruiter you can skip straight to Spellseeker or Trophy Mage without having to go through multiple tutors or relyingon a draw effect to draw Brutalizer Exarch 's tutored card.

But there's more! Imperial Recruiter can tutor Phyrexian Metamorph when becomes the recruiter and tutors Kiri-Onna which can combo tutor. Let me explain. Kiri-onna bounces phyrexian metamorph, which comes into play as a copy of Kiri-onna and bounces kiri-onna. Then play kiri-onna to bounce both the metamorph and imperial recruiter. Now you have a repeatable tutor and can search up Palinchron and play your deck.

But only do these if you feel like they help you win.
