BMHKain on Help wanted for Kadena Morph/Manifest... ...

Apologies for the previous dupli-comment. The server was a bit off at the time...

Well, as an update to the deck: at least we can say Volrath, the Shapestealer is out, & Ezuri 2.0 will be staying for a very long while...

Also, being able to BOUNCE Mantfests to your hand w/ Temur Sabertooth , Words of Wind , even Scroll of Fate allows you a choice for Manifestation. While killing the ones you DON'T own via Thieving Amalgam is like a perfect vengeance; even cards like Qarsi Deceiver , Temur War Shaman , Whisperwood Elemental , even Ghastly Conscription , Ethereal Ambush , & even Write into Being .

Also adding Cloudform , We have an amount of 115 cards in so far; or 114 if nobody wants me adding such a card. From there, we have 2 things left; the 3rd Question about what helps Creatures; Morphs/Megamorphs/Manifest all apply to these Bylaws. & since all start as Faceless 2/2 Colorless Face-Down Token Creatures, the question now is: In Colors, what would be good for both , cards, & those w/ eith 2 Power and/or 2 Toughness, or lower even?

From there it's the first, & last question: What to Cut?!

I'll proceed in removing some of these things; they've been established anyway. :)

So, what cards that can support basically any Morphs/Megamorphs/Manifests (Colorless 2/2 Face Down Tokens.) can help big here?

I'm done for now; I'll just remove some things as they're accomplished...

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

Thousand Winds is a cool card, but my meta likes to ramp until someone can one-shot, so people just don't swing, and I have been considering Dwarven Blastminer for a while.

Ooo I like Qarsi Deceiver, and I took out Jeering Instigator for the same reason I took out Thousand Winds. If I swing early, people get angry and I die.

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.

Some suggestions:Dermoplasm lets you put in morph creatures on the cheap, Master of the Veil lets you flip them back down again.

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.

Icefeather Aven can bounce opponents or your own for another morph cast, Qarsi Deceiver is a neat mana rock for the theme, I'm surprised you took out Jeering Instigator.

Proteus Machine can be a good bluff or just a free creature.

I'd definitely take out Myr Superion and replace it with something with more utility or just a big artifact creature with text on the card like Darksteel Colossus or Blightsteel Colossus instead.

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)

I'm skeptical how effective Ugin's Insight would be without Scornful Egotist. What about Secret Plans, instead?

You don't really have any one-drops. What about Obscuring AEther?

I think you are also missing good two-drops. Hooded Hydra and Stratus Dancer don't count. What about Qarsi Deceiver?

Add in a few Zoetic Cavern?

Nice deck! I've been brewing a morph deck too and found your deck while googling for ideas. You had some cards down I hadn't thought about, so thanks for that!

I'm using Atraxa, Praetors' Voice as the Commander, because I really wanted to use again Mastery of the Unseen since it rotated out of Standard, and black has some powerful cards too, like Ghastly Conscription. I'm making use of the proliferate too with planeswalkers and cards like Gavony Township.

Here're some cards I've considered that you don't have on your list.

Backslide and Master of the Veil to reuse your morph tricks.

Whisperwood Elemental is incredibly strong, and can give you an advantage over board wipes.

To make your morphs cheap there's Cloud Key, Planar Gate, Helm of Awakening, and in your colors Herald of Kozilek. And definitely Qarsi Deceiver.

Illusionary Mask probably has the most convoluted card text of all time, but it has great synergy with morph.

If you'd consider other colorless lands, some you might look at are Ancient Tomb, Temple of the False God, Tomb of the Spirit Dragon, and Shrine of the Forsaken Gods.

You can take advantage of your face-down creatures by using All Is Dust and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon to wipe out your opponents.

Also, Ritual of Subdual shuts down your opponents' spells and lets you beat them down with morphs.
