Thieving Amalgam

Thieving Amalgam

Creature — Ape Snake

At the beginning of each opponent's upkeep, you manifest the top card of that player's 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.)

Whenever a creature you control but don't own is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, its owner loses 2 life and you gain 2 life.

Hey DrValium, first let me say thanks for giving me the suggestions. I have actually have been debating whether to a Illusionary Mask. It is very janky and to me, it seems better to sneak in cards like Seedborn Muse or Thieving Amalgam. I can see that seems to be good for what I need, it is Colourless so works with a lot of the support I have in place I think I need to read all of the oracle rules to have a better understanding of it. As for Muraganda Petroglyphs I do believe Forsaken Monument is better for the card slot. Both give my morphed creatures +2/+2 (Muraganda with creatures with out abbilties and forsaken for colourless). However for an extra mana and no colour requirment forsaken does a little bit more. Forsaken gives Life gain whenever I cast a morph spell which I can do quite often in theory and for the 7 lands and soul ring it gives me an extra for those mana sources.

don't know if you're still using this but i found some stuff in yours i'm gonna steal.

also might wanna add Dream Chisel and Ugin, the Ineffable as both reduce the cost of morphs by 1 and 2 respectively

Thieving Amalgam is also a nice way to get loads of creatures on the board and get draws with kadena while maybe even getting some creatures that might be worth flipping up.

To preface, chaos decks in general draw a lot of ire, especially when it is chaos for chaos's sake with no direction toward victory. I personally have no issue with the chaos style, though resolving a Warp World or Scrambleverse is definitely a chore haha. Anyway it looks like you aren't going for anything too egregious here, so you should be fine in the eyes of your opponents. Even so, I might describe the deck as "unique/oddball effects" rather than "chaos" just so opponents don't get the wrong idea and try to eliminate you first because they think your goal is Hive Mind + Undying Flames lol.

As far as the general, have you considered Arjun, the Shifting Flame ? He makes it so that every time you cast a spell, you get a new hand. Pretty chaotic if you ask me! You could fill the deck with unusual effects (like you've done here with Jhoira) so that neither you nor your opponents will know whats coming next. Tasigur, the Golden Fang could be an interesting general as well, since the fact that an opponent chooses the card you get makes it both chaotic and interactive. Ruhan of the Fomori and Atla Palani, Nest Tender are pretty chaotic as well.

These cards might interest you: Chaos Wand , Mindmoil , Stolen Strategy , Charmbreaker Devils , Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar , Shared Fate , Telemin Performance , Proteus Staff , Endless Whispers , Infernal Genesis , Bottomless Pit , Thieving Amalgam , Evolutionary Leap , Oath of Druids

If you're running enough tutors run Karma + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . It's like Manabarbs on crack. Definitely use The Wanderer to reduce the massive amounts of damage dealt to you. Also use Exquisite Blood and Sun Droplet to regain a lot of the life you'll be losing. Thieving Amalgam also works as an amazing damage sponge with it's plentiful chump blockers and life gain potential.

That seems like a good way to cheat in big creatures like Thieving Amalgam , but I don't like that it's sorcery speed. Would I be able to use this to cast morphs for free? Would they remain face down without a mask counter placed on them?
