lagotripha on Simic Morph

Morph is a really cool mechanic which I haven't figured out how to make really 'kick' for competitive modern, but is still really fun in casual formats. Colourless, mana value 0 creatures that don't use the stack to become something else and have an activated ability in hand feels like something that should have a silly interaction that makes it great, but it just isn't there. Colourless interactions with eldrazi, artifact creatures & combos built on them crowd it out - people already pack hate because other setups have silly payoffs.

If I was trying to push it, I'd lean into Heartless Summoning and obscuring to try and cast a lot of morph cards, but without a second secret plans that feels awkward.

It is worth looking at Den Protector and Fathom Seer combo options- if you can loop a Time Warp you win the game, with some old Brine Elemental decks built around that, but looping morph effects is pretty tricky - it is usually easier to return to hand then recast since the usual suspects like Necrotic Ooze don't play nice. Have fun experimenting - there are a lot of cool interactions when you aren't using the stack, which will make it a blast to play.

I would advise against cutting Shared Summons. It has proved to be the best creature tutor in my deck. Generally it’ll grab me Seedborn Muse and Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir but can also grab the pickles lock or mix and match if I’ve got one piece of each already. Otherwise it can grab Den Protector and Vesuvan Shapeshifter for the Cyclonic Rift lock or any other pieces I need. Pulling two creatures at eot is just too valuable, and it’s one of the reasons I’ll go off on turn 5 or 6.

6/4/2021 Update - Den Protector (Shuckle) and Dimir Infiltrator (Gliscor). I pushed myself to make these slightly more stylized than my typical alter. I still need to come up with some more abstract/unique ideas for these. It'd be neat to emulate the huge variety of art styles that appear in pokemon cards.

I like how the guy above this comment just casually strolls in and tells you to put in a bunch of moxen...

That said, warriors is one of my favorite tribes and I've made a ton of decks with them! Plus Najeela is such a badass commander! These are my suggestions that you haven't included and could serve as some better synergy with your deck than your non-warriors:

  • God-Eternal Oketra make huge 4/4 zombie warrior tokens on every warrior cast.

  • Oketra the True make warrior tokens and acts as a big beater itself.
  • Oketra's Monument tons and tons of warrior tokens.
  • Rush of Battle warrior themed overrun that gains you tons of life.
  • Herald of Anafenza gets bigger and makes warrior tokens at the same time.
  • Raiders' Spoils probably the best card draw you'll see for warrior tribal.
  • Gilt-Leaf Ambush elf warrior tokens with sometimes deathtouch.
  • Hunting Triad elf warrior tokens or modal +1/+1 counters.
  • Presence of Gond give a creature a tap for elf warrior token ability.
  • Lovisa Coldeyes more warrior lord buffs!
  • Obsidian Battle-Axe haste and auto-attach to warriors equipment!
  • Regna, the Redeemer and Krav, the Unredeemed act as a sac outlet and warrior token generation combo.
  • Lord Windgrace deck filtering, color fixing, and generation of a ton of cat warrior tokens
  • Great Hall of Starnheim gets you a 4/4 angel warrior token in a pinch
  • Base Camp cheap 5 color land for warriors
  • Starnheim Unleashed make a ton of 4/4 angel warrior tokens!
  • Emeria's Call  Flip make angel warrior tokens and give your non-angel warriors indestructible or make it a land
  • Ascent of the Worthy pretty fun tricks on this.
  • Firja's Retribution make a 4/4 angel warrior token and give angels destroy and double strike.
  • Battle for Bretagard make warrior tokens, then make copies.
  • Nemesis on

    Illusionist's Bracers would double opponent sacs.

    Den Protector is cheap and pretty worthless after you use the morph. Good sac bait.

    Rite of the Raging Storm and Ogre Slumlord make a ton of creatures to sac

    Aspect of Mongoose can be cast, sacced, returned to your hand and cast again. Each color has a few enchantments that return to your hand when they hit the graveyard.

    Fecundity literally helps your opponents more than you if you are playing multi-player. Same with Nature's Resurgence.
