Creature — Horror


Thing in the Ice enters the battlefield with four ice counters on it.

Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell, remove an ice counter from Thing in the Ice. Then if it has no ice counters on it, transform it.

Heartless Act or Vampire Hexmage + Thing in the Ice  Flip would be fun here. Great deck!

I was mucking about with this list (I'm remebring yorion fires and trying to play around with that) when I tried Thing in the Ice  Flip. It feels a lot better than it looks.

If you did have a double face card, like Delver of Secrets  Flip, copying Thing in the Ice  Flip (sutch as by enchanting with Metamorphic Alteration ) then when you cast an instant or sorcery it will transform. This will result in an Insectile Aberration copying Thing in the Ice  Flip, so it will transform back then next time you cast an instant or sorcery. The reason is because your copying Thing in the Ice  Flip, not the whole card, so you'll never be copying Awoken Horror .

I was just wondering if a card transformed into Thing in the Ice  Flip would it automatically transform/flip upon it changing; specifically Protean Thaumaturge ??

Balaam__ Those lands would be fantastic yeah but are ever so slightly way out of budget haha. But I am looking to upgrade the manabase incrementally when I can. I also need to get another copy of Thing in the Ice  Flip

The list looks solid. Have you considered Force of Negation ? Also maybe 1 Spell Snare .

How has Bonecrusher Giant been working out for you? I know it's ubiquitous in standard but I feel like more counterspells or something like Dreadhorde Arcanist / Sprite Dragon / Thing in the Ice  Flip (which lets you reuse borrower and snappy) might be better. I'd probably lean towards Thing or Dreadhorde since the deck doesn't feel aggressive enough for Sprite though.

Thanks for all your suggestions and your work! I own some copies of Vapor Snag , Serum Visions , Spreading Seas , Serum Visions and Thought Scour and will try them.

I think you're right about Jace, Architect of Thought and I will test some other stuff in this place.

Search for Azcanta  Flip is great and I want to try this card for a long time, maybe the time has come now.

I love Thing in the Ice  Flip, but I already play it in my Izzet Control-list and because of this, I want to try Elspeth here.
