Polymorph

Destroy target creature. It can't be regenerated. Its controller reveals cards from the top of his or her library until he or she reveals a creature card. The player puts that card onto the battlefield, then shuffles all other cards revealed this way into his or her library.

Darth_Savage on Eldritch StompoSaurus (V 2.0)

I saw your forum post and figured I'd stop by. Budget reanimator builds frequently use Ashen Rider, Terastodon, Moldgraf Monstrosity or Void Winnower. Polymorph, Eldritch Evolution and Unburial Rites style decks are all essentially creature toolboxes, perhaps you can borrow ideas from those other decks. Hope this helps and good luck with your brew.

Darth_Savage on too easy

There is a slightly cheaper and arguably better way to achieve a similar result. Polymorph effects, in this case Indomitable Creativity, the catch is the only four creatures in your deck will be the ones your creatively morphing into. Luckily Dragon Fodder Krenko's Command and Hordeling Outburst exist, they also all make goblins so Goblin Grenade. The last part of the puzzle is Infernal Plunge, which can turn a token into mana. I knocked up a demo deck here -> too easy - demo

A more competitive play on the same idea was created by PeeBee, see -> Poly'M'rakrul

I would cut trinket mage for Fabricate. Then the rest of your creatures are bombs, so you can include Polymorph and Proteus Staff :p

Demarge on Raging Clue, shaped anew!

hmm this deck could probably be built way more competitively, you could cut all of the non blightsteel, have ink and blinkmoth nexus, and run Polymorph as extra copies of Shape Anew.

Could be better in Polymorph

Well after a bit of dicking around i come to the following conclusions:

1# Shape Anew is enabled by Blinkmoth Nexus (and Inkmoth Nexus - may be important in case someone uses Pithing Needle) & Trail of Evidence - which creates such a nice curve that i am tempted to run Disrupting Shoal. Of course it also allows to keep cards like Snapcaster Mage & Vendilion Clique in the deck.

2# Polymorph works best with fetching for Dryad Arbor using Misty Rainforest (which is not cheap - but not as bad as tarn) - however it makes you ditch the best creatures (that also cost a fortune), for stuff like Mission Briefing - and as an added bonus it allows me to play artifacts in the main and side beside the angel - however i am not sure its wise to sideboard cards that are gonna get hit by the hate coming my way in game 2 & 3.

3# i really miss the exile clause on Glorious End

The deck would probably be better with a budget check/tango land base rather than mono-blue, but Polymorph is better, as it can be used to replace (sometimes) the removal spells lost when moving to this mono-blue list.

That is still a problem though, as you need token generators. Creature tokens in blue aren't impossible, thopters exist, but the cheaper ones might not be the best, as you can't flip a creature, which is commonly what the thopter is tacked onto.

You could go Shape Anew, which is a cheaper card, and run a more mono-blue control feel to the deck, with Confirm Suspicions and Press for Answers as good cards that make tokens, which also can be used for card advantage need be. The issue there is removal, which might be able to be dealt with using bounce/counter, but is more probably dealt with by toying around with stalling/counter, using tap effects or a little bounce to back it up.

Up to you though!

Well i am a cheapskate. At least when it comes to paper magic. And since i managed to create a properly viable mono red homebrew, i have very hard time to convince myself to put much effort into my builds that require those pricy multicolored fetch & shock manabases - stuff like ~70$ Scalding Tarns.

My pickle is that i have this very great brew centered around Cheating into play platinum angel and protecting it - but its UR, to have access to Madcap Experiment & Glorious End

Well i don't wanna spend a fortune on the mana base.

Shape Anew & Polymorph both seem to be viable alternatives for one of the key red cards.

Which one do you think is the more viable choice for the deck?
