Creature — Illusion
Morph (2)(Blue) (You may play this face down as a 2/2 creature for (3). Turn it face up any time for its morph cost.)
Whenever Unblinking Bleb or another permanent is turned face up, you may scry 2. (Look at the top two cards of your library, then put any number of them on the bottom of your library and the rest on top in any order.)
Unblinking Bleb Discussion

Trail of Mystery is a really budget card that pretty much will let all of your morph costs tutor a basic land for you as well.
Unblinking Bleb will help with some top deck manipulation whenever you morph one of your creatures.
Mischievous Quanar Is interesting for its ability to copy spells, which can come in handy if your opponent plays something difficult.
Primordial Mist is something that will get you more bodies and potentially let you get some more morph creatures on the board.
Whisperwood Elemental is another card that will let you manifest some extra bodies onto the board which can be good for some additional morphs.
lastly Muraganda Petroglyphs is something that really helps the deck if you just don't have the mana to morph your creatures since then they will at least be 4/4 bodies instead of 2/2 ones and odds are it shouldn't help your opponents since no one really plays vanilla creatures in edh.

Pine Walker for its untap (just in case), Unblinking Bleb for good card advantage, Vivien, Champion of the Wilds for instant speed mophs, Yarok, the Desecrated for double morph effect, Mistfire Weaver for hexproof,

Staizer - Get ready for a long response:
I did look at the same list as you did, but as a longtime morph player, this deck is a disappointment. I've already made my thoughts on Kadena clear so I'll make that response short.
A bland Sultai value engine that brings nothing new to the table. She isn't a bad card by any means, but she doesn't address any of morph's biggest weaknesses. I'd still play Animar, Soul of Elements , Kruphix, God of Horizons , Muldrotha, the Gravetide , and maybe even the new Bant brawl commander over her.
The choice of morph/manifest related reprints
Some fine inclusions. Ixidron , Stratus Dancer , and Vesuvan Shapeshifter are nice, but they chose to exclude most of the best morph/manifest related cards: Dream Chisel , Ixidor, Reality Sculptor , Whisperwood Elemental , Riptide Entrancer , Voidmage Prodigy , Voidmage Apprentice , Aphetto Runecaster , Primordial Mist , Obscuring AEther , Unblinking Bleb , Weaver of Lies , Brine Elemental (though this one actually makes sense), and even Backslide . I would never expect all or even most of those to make it into the deck, but a couple would've been nice and would've made more sense than something like Deathmist Raptor or Silumgar Assassin .
Only Scroll of Fate and Kadena's Silencer are worth mentioning here. I know I sound like a broken record, but none of the new cards help address the issues facing morph: speed and the fact that morph is a value based mechanic that requires a massive mana investment. Morph will always be a casual mechanic, but it needs something that reduces the cost of triggering morph, or something that allows for multiple activations (my hope was for repeatable Backslide effects). Neither of those issues were addressed by the new cards in this deck. I would've been happy with just 1 card that helps in that way...1 card.
Is this a good pre-con for new players? Yes. Does it have value? Yes, though most of the value cards are only that way due to scarcity. I think many will end up tanking in price. Will it win games against the other pre-cons? Probably. Will it win games against even 60% decks? Unlikely.
So is it a good pre-con and I am being extra critical? Maybe, but this mechanic has had a special place in my heart for a very long time (Morph was first introduced when I was a little kid and just starting out playing Magic). I was excited to see morph finally get some needed reprints and support. Instead the new cards aren't that inspiring and the reprints honestly look like they just pulled up Gatherer, typed in "morph", and then picked some of the first things that they found.

Really cool deck. I run a much more classic version of morph deck with K&T as my commander and even more surprises coming out of sunforger. That Illusionary Mask is hilarious! I must have overlooked it every time I searched for "face-down" or similar keywords. Weird. Being able to turn your morph creatures face up just by tapping them seems almost broken. But just almost. ;)
If you need more carddraw, I'm kinda surprised you don't run Aphetto Runecaster yet. And since you want some stuff in the graveyard, Riptide Survivor may be something for you. More top deck manipulation service can be provided by Unblinking Bleb.

@The7thBobba: Thanks, glad you like it! Didn't know about Aphetto Runecaster, always cool to learn of new cards! I ran into Unblinking Bleb while I was doing my initial research for the deck, can't quite think of anything to replace with it, though. Have any suggestions there? Trying to tinker with it at this point is pretty hard, don't really know what to pull...
