Thing in the Ice Discussion

Barsan on Morphing Mind Games: Morph EDH

Also of Note:Zoetic Cavern feels like it belongs, optional and weird mana acceleration is kind of cool on it's own but with other scary morph cards it's a threat.

Vanish into Memory is also a neat card for card draw and the magic it works for manifest cards. If you hit a token or a non creature flipped card you draw 2 and the toughness and discard are 0. Hit an opponent's 20/20 Avatar... good times. And if worst comes to worst you hit your opponent's bomb on their endstep and play out your hand before the discard on yours.

Dark Depths might be good in your deck if you could manifest it and turn it face up but Thing in the Ice  Flip would really appreciate the flip. It would sit there waiting for you to cast an instant or sorcery to transform it and bounce everybody's creatures.

Sorry about all the comments, I really appreciate themed decks and yours is full of potential.

I'd just like to report that there isn't a little "flip" thing just above and to the right of Extricator of Sin and Extricator of Flesh such as with Thing in the Ice  Flip and Awoken Horror  Flip, and I can't find a way to fix it.

(Delver of Secrets appears to be missing it as well, but not Insectile Aberration  Flip )

You link using double brackets. Yes, the ability to return all non-horror creatures to their owner's hand goes on the stack and can be responded to.

Already some good ideas suggested, but another I was thinking besides Opt of course that you already mentioned is maybe the scry lands, of Temple of Plenty, Temple of Enlightenment and Temple of Mystery?

Then I have to agree on the earlier suggestion of Thing in the Ice  Flip which I also feel is worth consideration.

Well I think the other piece to this puzzle we need to first address is the application of Monastery Mentor in modern, a card that has had an impact in every format accept modern to date really. With the lack of "good" counters in modern we need to look to other aspects, specifically cantrips, we have Opt, Sleight of Hand, and Serum Visions to start us off, but we also need some additional payoffs in addition to the miracles, maybe Thing in the Ice  Flip or even Delver of Secrets  Flip.

UHm..... don't feature Thing in the Ice  Flip as picture if you're not playing it, gives people the wrong idea.
