Corth, Wildshape Shaman

Legendary Creature - Shapeshifter Shaman

At the beginning of your upkeep, reveal the top three cards of your library. You may exile up to one creature card and put the rest in the bottom of your library in a random order.

, : Until end of turn, Corth becomes a copy of target creature you own in exile where X is it's mana value, except he's still legendary.


At first I used vigilance to make this work. The reason being, if he taps to attack then you can't tap him for his activated ability. With vigilance however, you can attack first and tap second during combat or after blockers before damage is declared.

Another solution is to add "untap him." at the very end, allowing him to Wildshape, and then untap to attack. But that felt like extra steps for no good reason.

What I settled on, to save three whole lines of text and clunky wording, was the long-forgotten symbol. Now Corth can attack, surge his powers and become something ferocious and untap all at the same time, allowing him to be held up as a blocker later on as his 3/3 body on another players turn.

And alternatively, if you build him ways to tap without attacking such as with Cryptolith Rite, you can Wildshape him on an opponent's turn as well.
