Phyrexian Metamorph Discussion

legendofa on not a rules question, but …

I've seen something like this most frequently in a Sharuum the Hegemon combo with Phyrexian Metamorph .

The Combo Show

I don't think this proposed rule change would affect this particular combo, but there are a lot of weird lines out there. If it doesn't affect your games, it could work as a house rule, but watch out for outside situations where it could change the outcome of a game.

Hey, thanks for the information!

I'm experimenting with the two awaken cards in my live build, I'm not certain if they're worth it or not.

I'm not playing with any of the extra turn cards, because infinite turns is frowned on by my playgroup, and I find it a boring win-con. Don't get me wrong, it's good and effective, but not my style.

So far I've found Mirage Mirror and Artisan of Forms to be enough copy effects for your opponents stuff, but a Clever Impersonator , Mirrormade , or Phyrexian Metamorph would definienetly spice up your ability to profit from your opponents permanents.

Also Mystic Reflection is a versatile card that I can't really assess if it's worth it or not: You can copy a critter of your opponents for cheap, or nerf one of their big critters or walkers into a Llanowar Elves . I know it's good, but not how good yet.

Cyberbolt21 on Mono Blue Midrange

psionictemplar yeah believe me i know. XD i have a habbit of always adding a bunch of cards that look interesting. This use to be way more clutered before i put this here. For the theme, like title says, im going for more of a midrange style. Mix of aggro and control. So im trying to aim for a balance of creatures and spells. I've been watching youtube videos for guidance and pull some cards from various build from Tolarian Professor, strickly better MTG and Giant monster games. In a way id like for this deck to be a jack of all trades type, can do several things but not excelling in one particular area. This is well suited for the group of friends i play with. I know abilities matter more but ive always been a person who likes to use cards that have artwork i enjoy, not solely run stuff just cuz they are objectively the best, it depends. This applies mostly with creatures for me, an old habit i have from my yugioh days XD but i digress. Thats why mono blue has been difficult for me to make, cuz a lot of creatures are meh to me. However i did find some stuff i like. So creatures like Callaphe, Beloved of the Sea Cloudfin Raptor and Thoughtbound Phantasm can get bigger over time. And for Thoughtbound Phantasm uses surveil so i threw in Narcomoeba in so i can a free creatures out. Id prefer if i could get a creature that has this same ability but with some added stuff idk. Also threw in some surveil cards like Dream Eater and Dazzling Lights to boost Thoughtbound Phantasm . Also have one Rise from the Tides for a token flood if i need it and some milling options like Mind Sculpt and have Sacred Excavation to use on Compelling Argument for more mill options. Cryptic Serpent can get out quick and cheaper with all the instants and sorceries played. And for Phyrexian Revoker i already have a full set of 4 irl cards so i might throw them here, can be good control to block card abilities, and have the other Phyrexian Metamorph to copy a creature if needed. Like i said id like this to be a jack of all trades kinda deck. I just need to get a good ratio of cards to balance out this deck.

Playing my Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy deck right now, actually. I just ended my 4th turn. My boardstate looks like this:

Oh and someone blew up my Nyx Lotus . Guess they were scared I'd get too much mana?

Anyway I activated Kinnan 9 times on turn 4. Could have kept going but I ran out of , haha. Still had 18x though :/ Dang.

That's when someone like Mercurial Pretender and Deadeye Navigator really come in handy!

DeinoReborn as evidenced by Phyrexian Metamorph, they already like to employ shapeshifters amongst their ranks.

And I feel like Phyrexian long term invasion planning works well with a Dimir based scheming alignment as well.

Phyrexian Metamorph, Spark Double and Clever Impersonator would both be good additions here. I don’t know what you would cut for either but they’re awesome. Especially clever since it could hit one of your enchantments to double those effects. Spark double is sick because it hits your commander.

I have been really enjoying Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner her passive ability is great and she comes in with 7 loyalty for 3 mana.

Emergent Ultimatum is a cool one but I don’t know what you could cast for free off that with so many X cards...

Thats all I have. This is a very solid list.

Neoform 100% deserves a spot. It's the most mana efficient way to combo in Animar. The combo just needs 4 life, 2 counters on Animar, , and Imperial Recruiter in hand.

Imperial Recruiter looks up Phyrexian Metamorph.

Metamorph for 2 life copies Imperial Recruiter and looks up Spellseeker.

Spellseeker looks up Neoform.

Neoform sacs Spellseeker to look up Ancestral Statue.

Ancestral Statue over and over until Animar's power/toughness is double your opponents life total and then use Statue's final bounce to return Phyrexian Metamorph to hand.

Phyrexian Metamorph for 2 life again copies Imperial Recruiter to look up Walking Ballista for the win.

Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid for reference. Upvotes are appreciated.

Savage1988Thank you very much for the suggestions!

Some didn't even think twice! Crystal Vein was really forgotten!

I've tested the deck and you're absolutely right when it says it's slow so I added more rock. Simic Signet and Commander's Sphere were my choices.

I'm considering Kenrith's Transformation and Phyrexian Scriptures. Phyrexian Metamorph is a card that I love The Scarab and the Forty Thieves The most fun deck you'll ever play! But I am tempted to keep the value even though it is just over 2 dollars is not an essential card... But...I think...Som

Thank you very much for helping to evolve the deck!
