Vizier of Many Faces

Creature — Shapeshifter

You may have Vizier of Many Faces enter the battlefield as a copy of any creature on the battlefield, except if Vizier of Many Faces was embalmed, the token has no mana cost, it's white, and it's a Zombie in addition to its other types.

Hyperalgialysis on Izzet Mid-Range Afflict

Love it. The sideboard is good for that pesky red deck running around, and you have a good target for a free spell off Wildfire Eternal I was tinkering with Remorseless Punishment but yours is way better. If I may, drop it to 3 Wildfire Eternal and drop all the Vizier of Many Faces for 4 Enigma Drake. The drake will always be at a high power in your deck, and the vizier is useless on an empty board, or a board with a single creature if that creature gets killed when you cast. I realize that won't be the case often, but the drake is probably stronger a higher portion of the time. I say go to 3 wildfire because if you happen to be out of cards his ability is meh, and at 4 mana he is lackluster without a free cast. Also with the meta right now, everyone is running Chandra's Defeat and he is easily removed as a result. Merely my opinion, still upvoting because so many decks I see like this have no plan for that red deck and you have it in spades. Kudos

Late to the Amonkhet party, but better late than never.

  • Replaced Fated Infatuation with Vizier of Many Faces. While both create a copy of a creature, I can flicker or return the Vizier to my hand if needed.
  • Replaced Zendikar Resurgent with Elemental Bond. ZR is just so expensive to cast and I've got plenty of other ramp. But the card draw was nice, so let's go with a cheaper version. EB also lets me draw a card for token creatures and things cheated into play.
  • Replaced Temple of the False God with another Mountain.

Thanks for the compliment Jpegwun! I should probably add a Worldly Tutor, it just bums me out that I can't copy it ;)

Dual Nature is less appealing because it give my opponents more creatures and becomes an easier way for them to get rid of mine. When things are going well, I might have 2-3 or more of the same creature but Dual Nature lets me opponents remove all of them by getting rid of the original.

I don't think it's very nessecary, there aren't many embalm/eternalize creatures that have more than 3 toughness, and only one (Vizier of Many Faces) can be indestructible, so i don't think that would be a problem. Even if a creature would survive 3 damage, you can, say, shock/abrade it, then use incendiary flow.

I used to run a Ephara deck, recently changed it to a Brago deck for a change of pace. Faerie Artisans can get you more Ephara triggers and the copy ability can be fun. Mistmeadow Witch is a great way to get more flickers. Nevermaker is a great source of removal that basically steals a draw from your opponent. Stonehorn Dignitary is also great for stalling.

You could upgrade Clone to Vizier of Many Faces.

If you're looking for win cons, in my old Ephara deck, I often found it was easy to win with an indestructible 6/5 Commander with commander damage. Just slip in a Rogue's Passage. I also threw in an Inquisitor's Flail and Whirler Rogue, but the Rogue's Passage could easily replace one of your basic lands, Darksteel Citadel, or Faerie Conclave.

It's not budget, but Venser, the Sojourner is one of the best planeswalkers for EDH around and is perfect for a flicker deck. He's also another source for making Ephara unblockable.

Hope this helps.

Yes, that works because Vizier of Many Faces would be a Torrential Gearhulk at the time it enters the battlefield.

Rip ok. But I'm trying to make a standard deck so I couldn't use Mercurial Pretender. I could use Vizier of Many Faces, and then I'd be able to copy gearhulks ability correct?

I'm thinking I want to add Lord of the Accursed, and possibly Vizier of Many Faces. There are some interesting cards in HOU too, but slots are tight. Any suggestions?

Graf Harvest has been really strong, but it becomes redundant with the new zombie lord. I'm not upset by a bit of redundancy, especially since it still makes tokens.
