Wall of Stolen Identity

Wall of Stolen Identity

Creature — Shapeshifter Wall

You may have Wall of Stolen Identity enter the battlefield as a copy of any creature on the battlefield, except it's a Wall in addition to its other types and has defender. When you do, tap the copied creature and it doesn't untap during its controller's untap step for as long as you control Wall of Stolen Identity.

Wall of Stolen Identity Discussion

triproberts12 on Mr. Sandman, Bring me a Dream

If you're going to devote a deck to your favorite card (Nice choice, mine's Soulcatchers' Aerie), I would go all in. For example, in Dimir, Mana Skimmer is the Timeshifted version of Somnophore.

Time of Ice, Quiet Contemplation, Back to Basics, Dream Tides, Wrath of Marit Lage, Temporal Distortion, Neko-Te Thalakos Dreamsower, Wall of Stolen Identity, Frost Titan, Queen of Ice, Wall of Ice, Niblis of Frost, Guardian of Tazeem, Icefall Regent, Dungeon Geists, Mesmerizing Benthid, House Guildmage, Tidebinder Mage, Watertrap Weaver, Frost Lynx, Stitched Mangler, Fogwalker, and Vertigo Spawn would probably be my picks for "freeze" tribal.

Alternately, if you're not invested in Dimir, so much as in the creature itself, you could build a Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, or Empress Galina deck, since those commanders probably best represent what the card is doing.

ShreddedByCrows on Surrakar tribal challenge

1 month ago

Cool concept, even if it's pretty hard to match. A bit of an easy take on your theme, but why don't you play some Shapeshifters as a way to have more Surrakar? Tribal cards also could help.

As Surrakars' living places are mostly wild forests and underground rivers, there's a lot to do with that without having to back up only on the Zendikar's expansions.

1.) River cards:

  • River of Tears not the best land you could find, but fits in there

  • Underground River certainly an essential

  • Bad River cheap fetchland fitting the theme

  • Rushing River great removal, really underplayed, fits the theme / you can try something revolving around self land destruction if you decide to give it a try (Crop Rotation, Crucible of Worlds, Wasteland, etc.)

  • River Kelpie interesting creature, which design feels otherworldly and weird, according to the Surrakars /n needs a graveyard gameplan to be effective, and that will seem fine (obvious synergy is [card:Cauldron of Souls] and it's a playable card in there) / pretty good interactions with Yarok / card draw

  • Carpet of Flowers staple in lots of decks for mana production, depends on your playgroup though

  • Dire Undercurrents excellent synergies with Yarok, enabling your creatures without etb-abilities to be more effective / card draw, card advantage

  • Undermine weird counterspell, not really that good, not bad either / illustration matches with the theme

2.) Cave cards:

3.) Cloning your Surrakars cards:

  • Mirror of the Forebears not the most flavourful one, but gives you a cheap way to get more Surrakars so it deserves being at least mentioned

  • Fated Infatuation same comment as for the Mirror, with the advantage of the more abstract card name / waterpoint in the illustration

  • Mimic Vat classic card, not the most flavourful

  • Wall of Stolen Identity more of a Ravnica-themed card, but worth mentioning

  • Phantasmal Image if you can alter a bit the card's image, it could be some Surrakar there / otherwise, it's a good card, and the illustration is strange enough to not injure your theme-deck-style imo

  • Metamorphic Alteration also a nice one

  • Mirror Image not as good as the others, still a wildish illustration style according well with Surrakars

  • Unstable Shapeshifter funny card, a quality+ illustration

  • Bramble Sovereign Surrakars also living in the Guum Wilds/Tangled Vale, this one feels really good / has some interactions with Yarok

  • Rite of Replication Zendikar-themed, water-themed, excellent card, good interactions with Yarok

  • Supplant Form let's just assume for a while that this is Surrakar's magic lel

  • Dual Nature yeh it is slow, but it is strong / interactions with Yarok

4.) Tribal outlet:

5.) Yarok outlet

6.) Other cards

I hope you'll find something helpful amongst those suggestions, keep on brewing and thanks for sharing it!

BobbyBlue on The Best Offense Is A Good Defense?

I love defender decks.

Have you considered Overgrown Battlement and Doorkeeper ? Overgrown Battlement is kind of a second Axebane Guardian although not quite as good, while Doorkeeper can potentially give you a secondary win condition in a long game.

Fortified Area would be great, allowing you to block much more safely.

Wall of Stolen Identity and perhaps Mindbender Spores could be good utility as well to stop/discourage opponents from attacking you with their scary creatures in the first place.

I'd even consider Wall of Shards - in multiplayer you can spread the health around or give it all to one player who either really needs it or whose good side you want to get on. Could be an interesting tool in that regard. And considering how hard those walls can fall on people once you get Arcades, the Strategist , High Alert or Assault Formation out, a bit of extra life can be gotten around (unless it's been sitting there for like 20+ turns, at which point you could probably just win with Doorkeeper).

I'd say you probably want to take out of Wall of Reverence , though. I could be wrong, but I haven't seen anything in this deck that actually synergises with the power-based life gain.

Eloniel I don't know if Wall of Stolen Identity would be very useful since it is really expensive. Could be nice to lock an opponents creature tho. I really like Pramikon, Sky Rampart but I haven't thought of building it (until now? :D), yet.

  • So since no one suggested it here, what you all think about Wall of Stolen Identity it's a brand new blue wall from commander 2019 that coast 0/0 3U copy a creature on the battlefield + gain defender and wall the choosen creature cannot utap until it's on the battlefield.

  • Do you think you will do a Pramikon, Sky Rampart Wall deck ? :)
