Transmogrify Discussion

defamagraphy1 on Are These Cards Color Pie …

Polymorph has been around for a long long time. Circa 1996 I believe, and it wasn't used to destroy an opponents creature but rather your own.

The ability has eventually has evolved into what now is on cards like Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast and what I and some others call the red Polymorph Transmogrify. The style of play is still the same. Play a singleton of a game ending creature, play tokens, and Polymorph it. They just shifted the colors on it from blue to red.

Minousmancer the suggestions I gave earlier are standard rotation survivable, but here are some other suggestions.

Castle Ardenvale for making tokens. A little slow, but doesn't take up a spell slot.

Improbable Alliance is an ok card. If you have lots of card draw, you get lots of tokens.

The Birth of Meletis is too good to pass up.

Stolen by the Fae is an option.

Basri Ket is one to think about.

mjgilbert26 The token producers you recommended are ok, but are a bit too high mana. You want to be able to cast Transmogrify on turn four. Also, creatures that create tokens are unusable, as the only creature in the deck should be Terror of the Peaks so you have a 100% chance of hitting it.

I don't think you have nearly enough token targets for all of your Polymorph spells. It's a bit hard to count but I think you have about 9, and most of those are lands (which you might need)?

There's a lot of efficient token generation effects in your colors:
Dragon Fodder / Krenko's Command
Saproling Migration
Arachnogenesis
Lazotep Plating is also a fantastic card that happens to create a token.

Sandwurm Convergence is a great enchantment hit that would also allow you to keep the Polymorph train running.

I don't think you have nearly enough cycling to take advantage of Unpredictable Cyclone or Hollow One (which is also a sad hit off of Polymorph) so I would cut them.

Also, Polymorphing into a cascade creature does not get you the cascade trigger. I know they might be in there as pseudo-Polymorph effects, but there are so many legit Polymorph effects that I don't think the ones you have are worth it. Maelstrom Wanderer is a possible exception because it has a decent ability if you hit it with Polymorph.

Titanoth Rex and Yidaro, Wandering Monster are super underwhelming.

Here are some other creatures to consider that are better Polymorph hits, because they have ETB effects:
Apex Altisaur
Terastodon
Nezahal, Primal Tide

Transmogrify is a polymorph spell you've missed, and it also works as a pseudo-removal spell. Reality Scramble is great, too, because you can polymorph any permanent.

Finally, you might want a few other Mutate creatures because they can retrigger Illuna. I'd only consider big creatures that you don't mind hitting on Polymorph, so:
Sawtusk Demolisher
Auspicious Starrix

Nice job on this. I have my own Transmogrify-centered deck, and you’ve given me some ideas to make mine better. +1

If you want to lean into the combo more you can drop black for blue to run Polymorph in addition to Transmogrify

You could cut if you replaced Polymorph with Transmogrify

EDIT: aah, it exiles, never mind

Haven't the standard bannings been the best thing to happen this year?

Jokes aside, with Teferi, Time Raveler gone, you don't have to worry about casting Transmogrifying into a Terror of the Peaks just to have it bounced by Teferi, Time Raveler. In historic, people are doing a similar thing, just with Craterhoof Behemoth. The only problem with this deck is that when Reptilian Reflection and Riddleform become creatures, it doesn't count as them entering the battlefield. (They turn into creatures, not leave the battlefield and re-enter.) I would put in some Castle Ardenvales for token production, and take out Reptilian Reflection and Riddleform for 3x Satyr's Cunning and 3x Angelic Ascension.

+1 from me.

It's a shame you're not playing blue. See Beyond is a match made in heaven for Polymorph/Transmogrify.
