I did consider the Clone
type creatures when I started building the deck, but since the whole concept of the deck is that I can change my creatures into any other creature using Mirror Entity
anyway, I decided that this sort of creature had, if anything, less utility in this deck than in most other blue decks. If you guys can offer a good argument for putting them in, then I'm eager to hear it, but otherwise neither the Metamorph or the Imposter seem to me to be right for this deck.
What I'm looking for is creatures that can be utilised by the Mirror Entity
pairing in order to offer me more control over the game and strong defenses. For instance, the Myr Propagator
tokens can be changed into Capashen Unicorn
s and sacrificed in order to destroy opponent artifacts and enchantments. My creatures can be turned into Blinking Spirit
s if they get targeted by removal and need rescuing. Spirit Mirror
basically turns my Amoeboid Changeling
s into "tap to destroy target creature" badasses (Er, I think... Anyone know whether 'Reflection' counts as a creature type?). If I have an Amoeboid Changeling
and a Shapesharer
in play then I can turn one of my opponent's creatures into the creature of my choice, so that I can kick its ass in combat.
So if you know of anything that would fit well into a strategy like this, then that's what I'm really after. Things like Mother of Runes
, which would have been awesome, were it not for the price of the cards.
