Write into Being

Write into Being


Look at the top two cards of your library. Manifest one of those cards, then put the other on the top or bottom of your library. (To manifest a card, 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.)

Write into Being Discussion

I did not even think about the Vesuvan Brine combo, thank you for mentioning it.

Although I could see the benefits of Voidmage Apprentice, however I never really thought that a counter for 4 mana is any good, unless it adds some good things, like Kheru Spellsnatcher. Although I might reconsider about Voidmage, depending on where I go with the deck.

Write into Being does feel underwhelming to me too, yet I think with Kadena it adds some value (a 2/2 creature and a card draw) as well as using Primordial Mist you can always play the manifest if it isn't a creature.

But thank you for the feedback DankMagicianD

You might already know this, but since you didn't have it in the description: Brine Elemental and Vesuvan Shapeshifter also locks down your opponents. Voidmage Apprentice is a great addition to the deck as well. As for what to take out for it, Write into Being has always felt underwhelming for me unless I hit a morph creature, which isn't consistent enough to make me love the card.

Apologies for the previous dupli-comment. The server was a bit off at the time...

Well, as an update to the deck: at least we can say Volrath, the Shapestealer is out, & Ezuri 2.0 will be staying for a very long while...

Also, being able to BOUNCE Mantfests to your hand w/ Temur Sabertooth , Words of Wind , even Scroll of Fate allows you a choice for Manifestation. While killing the ones you DON'T own via Thieving Amalgam is like a perfect vengeance; even cards like Qarsi Deceiver , Temur War Shaman , Whisperwood Elemental , even Ghastly Conscription , Ethereal Ambush , & even Write into Being .

Also adding Cloudform , We have an amount of 115 cards in so far; or 114 if nobody wants me adding such a card. From there, we have 2 things left; the 3rd Question about what helps Creatures; Morphs/Megamorphs/Manifest all apply to these Bylaws. & since all start as Faceless 2/2 Colorless Face-Down Token Creatures, the question now is: In Colors, what would be good for both , cards, & those w/ eith 2 Power and/or 2 Toughness, or lower even?

From there it's the first, & last question: What to Cut?!

I'll proceed in removing some of these things; they've been established anyway. :)

So, what cards that can support basically any Morphs/Megamorphs/Manifests (Colorless 2/2 Face Down Tokens.) can help big here?

I'm done for now; I'll just remove some things as they're accomplished...

You should play with 20 or 22 Island and put some draws. Maybe Accumulated Knowledge , Mulldrifter or some cantrips. And I don't think that Write into Being is a good card in this deck.

I've been considering building a deck like this and including some BA eldrazis. You might consider adding some manifest cards, as well as some flicker junk. If you have a morph/manifested creature on the field and it exiles, when it re-enters it comes in face-up.


Cloudform, Lightform, Soul Summons, Write into Being, Whisperwood Elemental, Wildcall


Cloudshift, Ghostly Flicker, Glimmerpoint Stag, Deadeye Navigator, Eerie Interlude, Conjurer's Closet

I like how resilient this deck is to hand disruption, as it has a very strong ability to rig the top of its deck, which is unique and awesome.
It mostly seems weak to counter magics to me, and as a spell heavy deck that would normally be countered by adding 2-3 Boseiju, Who Shelters All into the deck. The problem is, I don't think you can afford colorless mana with Wildcall in the main. Given that you have Cloudshift and Essence Flux, is it possible that Wildcall might be able to be replaced with something like Lightform/Write into Being, or is that too slow?

You beat me to the punch in creating a Morph deck! Im still almost ready to put mine on TappedOut, itll probably be a non-Commander deck and will have some other, different creatures w/ and w/o morph ability. You probably are aware of these, but I dont see any of them on your list: Backslide, Revealing Wind, Soul Summons, Write into Being, Ethereal Ambush, might consider a couple of those to go in here, and Witness of the Ages & Proteus Machine for a couple of artifact creatures w/ morph.

Aven Farseer is a great addition to any morph deck!

I have a morph EDH also, with Ixidor, Reality Sculptor as my commander. I'm jealous that you're able to run the green and blue/green morph enchantments! I see you already considered Cloudform, but what about Write into Being, Training Grounds, Backslide, and so on? In my deck, I tried to fit all of the pieces into the theme. Here's a link if you're interested: Illusory Ixidor
