Artifact Creature — Shapeshifter
Morph (0) (You may play this face down as a 2/2 creature for (3). Turn it face up any time for its morph cost.)
When Proteus Machine is turned face up, it becomes the creature type of your choice. (This effect doesn't end at end of turn.)

i like the idea of this and the way it is built haveing 1 egg and a sac outlet can lead to a win unless you hit guide with no egg in grave or kiki with no extra egg to clone.
Ramp: because you dont wana run non eggs so you can turn throw the deck faster artifacts are the way to go. other then the normal Mana Crypt | Mana Vault you can run the talismans and signets exp. Talisman of Conviction | Rakdos Signet
Stuff look at
not a fan of Proteus Machine because hes not a egg unless you flip him so he could end the chain of eggs when trying to combo
Nesting Dragon has the same problem as proteus machine but for a tribal deck it is really nice value
i feel this could be a good cedh deck but you would have to remove all of the tribal stuff and go for a quick win with any sac outlet + commander + egg i dont think you would even need Thornbite Staff if you build the deck this way

Thanks for the input!
I am indeed working with a budget. trying to keep it close to $100
When I put this deck together originally, I had Akroma, Angel of Fury, but it burns all of the red I have and it's really just 6 unblockable (give it protection from color) and that, by itself, is not good in my meta.
Since I already play morphs for free with Animar, and their effects are flip costs, not enter costs, so I don't need Dermoplasm
Proteus Machine is a cool card to bluff with, but as this is a morph deck, pretty much everything is a bluff already lol
Honestly, I just put in Myr Superion because I loved the work-around with Animar, but I do want a large colorless creature. Darksteel Colossus Is cheaper and less scary. Won't paint a huge target on my back.
I'm still unclear on what Rogue's Passage will do, besides let an infinite Animar through, which I already do with changing the protection color anyway...
You're right about Ophidian. I've been adding better card draw recently.
Thank you so much for the input! This deck is my pride and joy, and it's so much fun to play.

Hey, thanks for the comment!
Cool idea for an Animar deck. Are you working within any budget constraints or anything? I'm surprised not to see Akroma, Angel of Fury. The is rough but not too bad in Animar's colors.
Thousand Winds is pretty much a win con if someone's tapped out. Dwarven Blastminer might be a sideboard card, but being able to pop annoying lands like Rogue's Passage, Maze of Ith or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and the like on the cheap is amazing.
Proteus Machine can be a good bluff or just a free creature.
Rogue's Passage will help a lot in getting those morphed creatures in when they figure out what you're doing.
The only problem I really see with your deck is a lack of longevity and some lack of cohesion. You're like 75% in on morph, but you've also got some extraneous cards you don't really need to be using, like Ophidian(You're in blue-you'll get better payoff just using a draw spell or something that taps to draw)

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!

Nice deck, I really like the idea behind a simple and cheap EDH deck. If you are looking for suggestions, maybe check these out to use Isao, Enlightened Bushi's regeneration ability for more than just himself: Chameleon Colossus, Runed Stalactite, Changeling Titan, Game-Trail Changeling, Woodland Changeling, and Proteus Machine.

City of Solitude stops all off-turn activated abilities. while this doesn't apply to morphing, it applies to paying the cost for morphing if the cost includes mana. If it doesn't, like merrowMania said regarding Proteus Machine, you're good to go.
