I'm looking for help on an out line for a spell shaper tribal deck. Not looking for competitive builds just something i can start with. 1-2-3-4-5 color doesn't matter. Any help appreciated thank you

Just kinda wanted a fun deck and they just seem fun. I have a few play groups and when i don't want to just crush their decks with gitrog monster, i wanna have a weaker deck that uses things ive never used before

I'm going to suggest finding some good recursion--if you're going to be dumping cards every turn, you will almost certainly be tossing something you'll need later. Maybe Phyrexian Reclamation, or a couple of Aphetto Dredging to support the Undertakers that I strongly recommend. Or just rely on Squee, Goblin Nabob.

Outside of that, Spellshapers tend toward the small and control-y, but there are enough exceptions to work with. All of the legendary ones make good finishers, and there's one in every color ( has two).

shadow63 Can I ask which part of my comment you're referring to? I wasn't intending to suggest there aren't enough Spellshapers to build a deck, and I want to clarify any ambiguity.

The last line. I thought you where saying there was only 1 in every color and 2 in red. Just some misreading on my part

shadow63 No problem. You got it, and if you misread it the first time, I figure someone else will, too.

To clarify, there's a legendary Shapeshifter in every color ( has two).

Spellshaper, not Shapeshifter.

Back during Time Spiral block, I had some fun with spellshapers and Madness cards.

Fatestitcher would be a good one, since you could unearth it to untap a spellshaper, and squeeze an extra use out of it.
