If this could target a player, it would be pretty naughty. Instead its combolicious and will most likely never see any limited play and only moderate constructed play. Limited a .5, Constructed a 1.

An interesting effect. You either want this to put a bunch of flashback cards in your graveyard, or as a Feldon's Cane type effect. Either way, it costs too much mana. If there is a combo deck out there, someone will use this in it. I doubt there is though.
 
In limited, this could be the Feldon's Cane in a time of great need. I wouldn't play it though.

Mortality Shift is an extremely funky card. It's effect is cool, and always benefitial, especially with decks like Rice Snax that can cycle incredibly fast. Unfortunately, in constructed, I don't see it being great, because it does cost 5BB. You'll be dead or won't have control of the board before it can be used in any useful fashion. In constructed, a 2.

In limited, I don't know, I have never actually seen this card in action. It looks like it could be ignored in limited, because it costs 7 mana, which is still a lot. Since it's not a creature of ungodly size, or mass removal, it can be passed on. I give it a 2, teetering on less.

It will be a rare situation that it will see a great amount of play in this format.

This card reminds me of Doomsday, if you play it right, you can really make a good combo out of it. It does cost a lot to cast, though. Using spells like Intuition and Quiet Speculation, you can fill your graveyard with all goodies.

Limited: 1

Constructed: 1

Casual Fun: 3

Lets face it, WOTC is due to ban this card any day now.  As soon as the killer combo of Morality Shift and Sutured Ghoul is discovered by the pro's it'll be all over folks.

(note:  for all you poor bastards out there who think I'm being serious and actually beleive that two 7cc spells make a good combo... I truly pity you and hope to get matched up against you at my next constructed tourney.)

My Morality is just fine, but this card is not. Leave it in your trade binders, or better yet, pass it off to the next person.

Constructed: 1

Limited: 1

Morality Shift

7 mana to exchange the graveyard and library? Morality Shift is prohibitively costed, and almost unplayable as a result. If I pay 5BB I want to win the game with that card, not faff about and get Threshold at a time when I probably already had it. Doubtless someone will find a great use for this, but I'm not touching Morality Shift until that day. 

In constructed, there are a few nice little tricks you can play with this, but ultimately you can only play them too late. It's more playable in limited, but Morality Shift still doesn't do anything unless you find something cool to combine it with.

Constructed - 1.5

Limited - 1.5
