u/g morph + infinite mana and Turns!

Commander / EDH*




Morph is a deck that is very close to my heart. Back in the days of Khons and Dragons of Tarkir, I picked up my first starter deck. While not the MAIN mechanic in the deck, it did contain the Morph mechanic and i fell in love with that mechanic. Once the Tarkir block rotated out of standard, i still played it, as a casual deck, and have been trying to make the deck work. I moved to a new house, a new city, and found a place that does FNM. The format there is commander, and when I found that out, I was excited. I could finally make Morph semi-competitive again.Keep in mind, this is the first deck I have ever built for Commander, and I'm still new to the format. I understand the basic rules, and tried to make the best deck i could. This deck is not meant to be VERY competitive, just supposed to be fun. However, I would love some advise on how to make the deck more competitive. Like I said, its been a while since i played with the goal of winning in mind. Usually its just to have fun.

Part of my original Morph deck was the ability to recycle my graveyard. That is why I have so many of those recycle cards. Many of my affects are one use, and i would like to recur them as much as i can.


gaining mana

Attacking directly - NOT infinite:This way of gaining mana is based on the card Prying Blade. This is done through creatures that can attack directly themselves, such as:

Or through cards that make creatures unshockable, such as:

Infinite Nama:Combos based on Nim Deathmantle

1) Have Nim Deathmantle and Composite Golem in play. Sac Composite Golem to get 5 mana. Then trigger Nim Deathmantle, spending 4 mana. Repeat till you get enough mana.

2) Have Nim Deathmantle and Ashnod's Altar in play. Cast Symbiotic Elf , triggering its ability to make 2 tokens. Sac Symbiotic Elf and the tokens to Ashnod's Altar, then use Nim Deathmantle to bring back Symbiotic Elf . Repeat till you have enough mana.

Other Mana ComboHave Grand Architect and Pili-Pala in play. Use Grand Architect to make Pili-Pala blue. Then, use Grand Architect to tap Pili-Pala. Use mana generated to untap Pili-Pala. Repeat till you have enough mana.

With the infinite mana combos, i can also use Whetwheel as a win con.

Infinite Turn ComboHave Ezuri, Claw of Progress and Sage of Hours . You will need to have gotten at least 5 experience counters for this combo to work. Once you get to that point, you can use Ezuri, Claw of Progress to put 5+ +1/+1 counters. Using Sage of Hours , remove all the counters on Sage of Hours . for every 5 counters removed, you get an extra turn. As you get more experience, you will add more counters. If you get 10+ experiance, you will put 10+ counters on Sage of Hours , thus you can gain more then one turn. Then you can make another creature bigger and still get that extra turn. Repeat till opponent is dead.

Kruphix, God of Horizons might be useful especially when you cant get your infinite mana engines.

So that meens as long as i have the god, I can tap all my mana, and i keep ALL of it, just in the form of colorless? Did i read that right?

A few quick things :)

First, I hate to tell you this, but Composite Golem isn't legal in a UG deck. It has a color identity of 5-color, because it has all mana symbols in its text :( You can get the same effect with Ashnod's Altar + Symbiotic Elf, though!

Cost reduction works extremely well with morph, by the way. Dream Chisel and Semblance Anvil can make it cheaper to spit out a bunch of creatures. Muraganda Petroglyphs also pumps your face-down creatures.

I hope that helps a bit ;)

Thank you Daedalus19876 for pointing out the obvious with Composite Golem. I HONESTLY did not see that little detail in the card. Thank you once again. I have replaced Composite Golem with a Whetwheel that i have. Thank you, too, for the card suggestions. I will look into getting them when i can,

Hey rocksanne, I like the deck! Just so you know, you can get away with as low as 35 lands in Commander with enough ramp, but around 38 lands is a comfortable amount.

I would look into Ixidor, Reality Sculptor in your deck, he is really worthwhile since he can flip things for cheap.

Have you considered cards like Crystal Shard to return things to your hand? Equilibrium also is pretty neat.

As far as mana ramp goes, Druids' Repository acts like a similar effect to your blade. Having 1 or 2 more ramp effects like Cultivate or Everflowing Chalice could really help your deck take off a bit faster.

Unless you have some sort of specific plan with Ezuri? I would think about changing the commander into Animar, Soul of Elements he works really well with morph creatures, basically making them free and opening up for lots of infinite combos..

Animar, Soul of Elements isn't a bad card. To be honest, i didn't know it existed. Thank you for the tip. As for why i wanted Ezuri, it was because it was the only commander I knew of that could help morphs.

However, money is an issue. I just looked up the price for Animar, and its WAY out of my budget.

Potentially consider changing to a Bant Commander for some of the other really good morph creatures in Khans like Master of Pearls and Hidden Dragonslayer.

Another idea is using some of the manifest cards from Fate Reforged as manifest also counts as a face-down creature and it would work well with the cards you already have that help morphs.

Good Luck.
