Crookclaw Transmuter

Creature — Bird Wizard

Flash (You may cast this spell at any time you could cast an instant.)


When Crookclaw Transmuter enters the battlefield, switch target creature's power and toughness until end of turn.

Skyshroud Poacher and Moggcatcher search for any creature and puts it into play. Goblin Recruiter can stack your library with all of your creatures.

You're also going to want the max amount of tutors for the Nexus: Enlightened Tutor, Reshape, Tinker, Transmute Artifact, Clutch of the Undercity, Crookclaw Transmuter, Dimir House Guard.

I'd also recommend some good Shapeshifter cards, so you have things to do/find with these cards even without the Nexus. Maybe Altered Ego, Chameleon Colossus, Crib Swap, Duplicant, Evil Twin, Masked Vandal, Unsettled Mariner, and definitely Mirror Entity and Realmwalker. Morphon himself is also a good include.

Finally, you might want the Kindred cards that are good: Kindred Discovery, Kindred Dominance, maybe Kindred Boon.

Sounds like a fun idea!

When I saw this I immediately thought of the "switch power and toughness" cards...which are funny with defenders but downright hysterical with this guy: Crookclaw Transmuter, Merfolk Thaumaturgist, and Twisted Image..add a Crenellated Wall or Magebane Armor and you have a One Hit Wonder that'll definitely make opponents Crabby..Sincere apologies for the puns..But seriously They may be good additions without messing up synergies

Illusory Ambusher would give you another creature that can deal the beats a little better plus cash in for cards if it is killed via damage.

Crookclaw Transmuter gives you a combat trick that might sneak through some more damage or help one of your weenies trade up.

Mirror-Mad Phantasm may be a bit dangerous to use its activated ability here but it hits for 5 and has its own evasion if your commander gets removed.

If budget isn't as big of a concern, Morphling may be a good fit as you can customize its power/toughness as the situation demands.

In my humble opinion I think you should replace Crookclaw Transmuter to Beetleform Mage. Why? Because the transmuter is too situational while the mage is a strong beater.

Splash white for Unburial Rites with Gifts Ungiven? I know it's a different deck, but the idea would still work well, not only as a tutor, but as grave return if you run 1 of Emrakul, the Aeons Torn or Iona, Shield of Emeria. As for the lands, I'd pull the Sunken Hollows for the shocks and fetches in your maybeboard. I'd go with 2 shocks, 4 fetches personally. Tasigur's Cruelty might be good as a 1 or 2 of here. Because you're going for control, losing life to Dismember is relevant, so maybe Go for the Throat or Victim of Night too. I'd still keep like 2 Dismember, but idk about a playset. the dimir pacts (Slaughter Pact / Pact of Negation) could also go in mainboard or sideboard.

Cards with transmute for 3/4 drops: Clutch of the Undercity, Dimir House Guard, Dimir Machinations, Drift of Phantasms, Perplex. I'm a fan of Perplex. Crookclaw Transmuter technically has "transmute" in it's name and it's a 4 drop if that counts for anything lol.

Love the deck; keep it up. +1

This is /. Power/toughness switching effects are historically in blue and occasionally in red (Crookclaw Transmuter, About Face, Wandering Fumarole, Twisted Image come to mind immediately), and with the randomness of the last effect, this card is definitively /.

Also, Boza, there has never been a card that switches power and toughness in green-at least that I could find.
