This is probably my third or fourth, maybe even my fifth time attempting to make a Skinwalker on this site. I think this is probably the best one I've done, honestly. Reminds me a lot of Vesuvan Shapeshifter.

I remember when Amonkhet was being spoiled, people were torn over the idea of mono-white Zombies. Then later when Ixalan came out and mono-white Vampires were a thing, everyone loved the idea of it because they were now accustomed to white showing an evil side, despite white having always had an evil side.

Anyway, make a creature who definitely isn't thought to be in mono-white - a mono-white creature. For example, a mono-white horror, or a mono-white nightmare. You could do a mono-white goblin or elf. Maybe a merfolk. Just anything that doesn't "sound right" will work, as long as you can justify the design appropriately.

I would advise against cutting Shared Summons. It has proved to be the best creature tutor in my deck. Generally it’ll grab me Seedborn Muse and Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir but can also grab the pickles lock or mix and match if I’ve got one piece of each already. Otherwise it can grab Den Protector and Vesuvan Shapeshifter for the Cyclonic Rift lock or any other pieces I need. Pulling two creatures at eot is just too valuable, and it’s one of the reasons I’ll go off on turn 5 or 6.

I have gotten to play a few games with the deck at its current build. One I came in second and another I won. There are some interesting interactions. The deck has proven resilient to board wipes and versatile dealing with opponents. MVP cards have been Seedborn Muse and Vesuvan Shapeshifter .

Seedborn Muse + Havengul Lich + Flash let me pull way ahead after board wipes winning me the game.
Scroll of Fate has proven to be a great way to dodge counter magic for must have creatures like Seedborn Muse . With this deck Scroll of Fate basically reads draw a card and play this card it is uncounterable.
Vesuvan Shapeshifter let me use Chromeshell Crab multiple times to swap 2/2 manifested lands with my opponents beaters.

Makes me wish Prophet of Kruphix was still legal. I think I am going to work on the manabase for now as the next steps.

5/31/2021 Update - Completed Chakram Retriever (Suicune). I tried to make the background look like an old-school holo pokemon card with shiny specs in various shapes and sizes.

Also received this rad Vesuvan Shapeshifter (Ditto) alter from GummyGhost. She's really good at making cute characters and it's nice to have something with a unique style in the deck among all my basic alters. The 90s pattern background is a nice touch. Reminds me of the carpet at Chuck E Cheese.

Hi KITTYMANHunkGTI thanks for the suggestions! As much as I like Vulpix and Ninetales I'd still like to stick to the morph theme, which is why I don't have things like Sigiled Starfish as Starmie. Also I actually did consider Umori as Ditto! It would make sense since they're both oozes. However I thought it'd be nice to have Mew alongside Mewtwo in the command zone, and chose Vesuvan Shapeshifter to be Ditto instead. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts, I appreciate it

I see you're running Vesuvan Shapeshifter , could also include Brine Elemental to pickle your opponents!
