Primordial Mist

Enchantment

At the beginning of your end step, you may manifest the top card of your library. (Put it onto the battlefield face down as a 2/2 creature. Turn it face up at any time for its mana cost if it's a creature card.)

Exile a face-down permanent you control face up: You may play that card this turn. (You still pay its costs. Timing rules still apply.)

Bit off topic, but... "I wish there was a card that can bypass Manifest's restriction that only allows it to be revealed as a Creature" Primordial Mist is your friend

Trail of Mystery is a really budget card that pretty much will let all of your morph costs tutor a basic land for you as well.

Unblinking Bleb will help with some top deck manipulation whenever you morph one of your creatures.

Mischievous Quanar Is interesting for its ability to copy spells, which can come in handy if your opponent plays something difficult.

Primordial Mist is something that will get you more bodies and potentially let you get some more morph creatures on the board.

Whisperwood Elemental is another card that will let you manifest some extra bodies onto the board which can be good for some additional morphs.

lastly Muraganda Petroglyphs is something that really helps the deck if you just don't have the mana to morph your creatures since then they will at least be 4/4 bodies instead of 2/2 ones and odds are it shouldn't help your opponents since no one really plays vanilla creatures in edh.

jasonkrivera so question about Primordial Mist . It says exile a face down permenant you control face up. If you do this and its an instant or sorcery what happens? Can you still play the card?

Bloodsucker1211 be my guest!

I added Primordial Mist and Scroll of Fate to the main. Getting those morph creatures will help save on mana costs, especially with the scroll. Then you can technically play your creatures as though they had flash (manifest + pay their cost), or you can manifest, block, and cast your face down instant spell with scroll + mist out.

If you think of anything else please let me know!

Staizer - Get ready for a long response:

I did look at the same list as you did, but as a longtime morph player, this deck is a disappointment. I've already made my thoughts on Kadena clear so I'll make that response short.

Kadena:

A bland Sultai value engine that brings nothing new to the table. She isn't a bad card by any means, but she doesn't address any of morph's biggest weaknesses. I'd still play Animar, Soul of Elements , Kruphix, God of Horizons , Muldrotha, the Gravetide , and maybe even the new Bant brawl commander over her.

The choice of morph/manifest related reprints

Some fine inclusions. Ixidron , Stratus Dancer , and Vesuvan Shapeshifter are nice, but they chose to exclude most of the best morph/manifest related cards: Dream Chisel , Ixidor, Reality Sculptor , Whisperwood Elemental , Riptide Entrancer , Voidmage Prodigy , Voidmage Apprentice , Aphetto Runecaster , Primordial Mist , Obscuring AEther , Unblinking Bleb , Weaver of Lies , Brine Elemental (though this one actually makes sense), and even Backslide . I would never expect all or even most of those to make it into the deck, but a couple would've been nice and would've made more sense than something like Deathmist Raptor or Silumgar Assassin .

Value reprints

Not much to complain about here as there is some solid value in the deck, though I think Cloudstone Curio or Equilibrium would've been good value reprints that interact well with the theme mechanic.

New cards

Only Scroll of Fate and Kadena's Silencer are worth mentioning here. I know I sound like a broken record, but none of the new cards help address the issues facing morph: speed and the fact that morph is a value based mechanic that requires a massive mana investment. Morph will always be a casual mechanic, but it needs something that reduces the cost of triggering morph, or something that allows for multiple activations (my hope was for repeatable Backslide effects). Neither of those issues were addressed by the new cards in this deck. I would've been happy with just 1 card that helps in that way...1 card.

Is this a good pre-con for new players? Yes. Does it have value? Yes, though most of the value cards are only that way due to scarcity. I think many will end up tanking in price. Will it win games against the other pre-cons? Probably. Will it win games against even 60% decks? Unlikely.

So is it a good pre-con and I am being extra critical? Maybe, but this mechanic has had a special place in my heart for a very long time (Morph was first introduced when I was a little kid and just starting out playing Magic). I was excited to see morph finally get some needed reprints and support. Instead the new cards aren't that inspiring and the reprints honestly look like they just pulled up Gatherer, typed in "morph", and then picked some of the first things that they found.

Dig deeper into the Sultai Morph precon decklist and you can find lot of reason to buy it. The manabase alone may be one of the better manabases for a three color Commander precon. Eleven nonbasic lands ETB untapped which is by precon standards an improvement from past precon manabases.

Why are the Signet lands ( Darkwater Catacombs ) being printed as rare lands? These lands don't actually make mana without having another land/one mana first, this is not an ability that's rare. These should be uncommon since they're much worse than Filter lands ( Sunken Ruins ) which are also rare lands.

Land value in the precon (in order):

I'm happy to see Ash Barrens reprinted because it's land that should be in every Commander precon. There's 17 two drops which is an improvement for precon deck building. Kadena, Slinking Sorcerer , Scroll of Fate and Kadena's Silencer look like good cards for morph. Silencer will however not hold at $10 of value it will decrease a lot. I don't know enough about the 13 other new cards to evaluate their value in the precon.

Valuable reprints in the Sultai deck (in order):

Some notable exclusions for a morph theme:

Look into the manifest mechanic, it works really well with Kadena. Primordial Mist and Whisperwood Elemental in particular look like they'll be very good in this deck.

[email protected]_only Wow thanks, someone did their homework!!!! I’m also pretty fond of this deck I crammed all the morphs I opened in packs when I started playing in the onslaught block.

Obscuring AEther / Dream Chisel : I already get the morph discount from Animar, Soul of Elements rather easily.

Primordial Mist / Whisperwood Elemental / Thousand Winds : I’m trying to keep the mana curve on the low side.

Ixidor, Reality Sculptor aka Akroma, Angel of Wrath ‘s daddy: I don’t really need a lord and I have other ways of flipping morphs over and over again with Weaver of Lies and Master of the Veil .

Secret Plans / Trail of Mystery : Those cards are great I did not know they existed I’ll try to include them.

Jeskai Infiltrator : He will most likely never get to deal combat damage in my playgroup.
