Shapesharer Discussion

McToters on "Since when do people actually use Moonfolk?"

I have never seen anyone make a deck like this! Title is accurate! Awesome brew

It seems it’s been working well with just the 11 or so moonfolk you’ve been running, but you ever think of running some changelings? On a quick search I think there’s 4-5. Something like Shapesharer Universal Automaton or Turtleshell Changeling. The only reason to use them would be if your moon-folk count isn’t assisting with your commander enough.

You ever think of some snow-covered islands to work in tandem with Extraplanar Lens? That way if you play against another blue deck you don’t double their mana as well.

I remember drafting a Modern Masters deck with a bunch of changelings plus the cat lord plus some slivers. It was very sweet and I think much smaller scale version of what you've got here. On a theorycraft level at least, I'd like to see lot of changelings and have it matter that they have multiple types (e.g. my creature is very cool/powerful with it being a dragon/wizard/cat/some other oddball type). That would incline me to add more changelings in the mix (such as the one Jack mention plus any other low mana cost changeling not mentioned like say Shapesharer).

I think it could be interesting to have each lord be for a different type like only one for dragons, one for slivers, one ninjas, one for turtles. Say Deathbellow War Cry for minotaurs, Ayula, Queen Among Bears, I love Gilt-Leaf Archdruid even if the ult is kind of mean. There are lot of options lots of potential for personalization, that's how I'd go about it.

Regarding some of the cards not already discussed, I see a couple cards that grant your double strike, which I'd want to pair with cards that add a large power boost like Megantic Sliver or Crucible of Fire

Thada Adel, Acquisitor is amazing ramp as she plays Sol Ring from every other player

Shapesharer and Chameleon Colossus have useful abilities in addition to being merfolk.

Maybe not use all of these but at least one could provide some recurring creatures : Soul Foundry, Mimic Vat, Riptide Replicator

Cool deck! You might like these: Winter Orb (tap it with your general before your turn starts, and you get to untap all your lands while everyone else only untaps 1), Static Orb, Storage Matrix, Drift of Phantasms (finds Verity Circle), Muddle the Mixture (finds either piece of the Illusionist + Greaves combo), Merchant Scroll / Spellseeker (finds Muddle the Mixture), Urza's Incubator, Birthing Boughs, Riptide Replicator, Amoeboid Changeling, Mothdust Changeling, Shapesharer, Quicksilver Fountain

I was playing around with a giant list a little while ago, and the conclusion that I came to is that Jeskai Giants (Jeskai Jiants?) led by Ruhan of the Fomori is the best build, since you can use on-board tricks like Shapesharer , Vesuvan Shapeshifter , Renegade Doppelganger , Artisan of Forms , Arcane Artisan , Cryptoplasm , and Call to the Kindred along with copy effects like Quasiduplicate to skip over playing a bunch of mediocre Giants, instead copying the good 6+ mana ones the turn they come down. The nuts is copying an Arcane Artisan , and have it become your insane giant in response.

Some changelings you may want to consider are Amoeboid Changeling to turn your other creatures into ninja, Birthing Boughs for later game changeling army, Graveshifter to bring back important cards, Shapesharer to become your best ninja, Universal Automaton for cheapness, Venomous Changeling to force someone to either kill a creature that can do 3 damage to it or trigger your commander effect while being a good chumpblocker, and Wings of Velis Vel , which can turn an attacker into a ninja, a nice suprise attack if you will.

It occurs to me that Changelings like Unsettled Mariner , Shapesharer , and Universal Automaton are all Allies AND Wizards. They're all also generally synergistic with the plan as a whole.

Maybe this deck is worth a revisit?
