Morph Mayhem

Morph Mayhem

Legions Theme Deck

If you enjoy turning your opponent's brain into a puddle of goo, give the "Morph Mayhem" deck a try. Many morph creatures equals many options-options that no one else will know about until it's too late.

Your goal is simple: keep your opponent guessing. Always play your creatures with morph face down and attack aggressively. Wait until all blocking decisions have been made, and then decide whether or not to flip anything face up. Your success with this deck depends greatly on your bluffing skills, so show no fear during your attacks. Make your opponent afraid to block, and if he or she does, you can flip your morph creatures face up to use their special abilities.

Don't play any spells before your attack because you'll want to have mana available to power your morph abilities during combat. That way, you'll be able to do practically anything instants can do during combat, but with a good beefy creature attached. For example, Wingbeat Warrior's ability will help you win creature battles while Voidmage Apprentice and Willbender will keep bothersome spells away.

Of course, playing a deck that contains so many 2/2 creatures is tricky. One cheap 2/3 creature, like Elvish Warrior from the Onslaught set, can cause a fatal slowdown. And since many of your morph creatures have fairly high costs, you might get caught flat-footed by a single Harsh Mercy (Onslaught). To provide early support, cheap nonmorph creatures like Glory Seeker, along with cheap morph creatures like Whipcorder, are in the deck.

Some other interesting additions to this deck from the Onslaught set might include Dream Chisel, which will make your morph creatures cheaper, and Backslide, which can reset your tricks. Unlike tap abilities, morph abilities can be played the same turn a creature comes into play, so plan accordingly. Play your cards right, and your opponents won't know what hit them - literally!
