A really, really bad version of Body Double with
the added "bonus" that it can re-shapeshift into
something else if you want to. Unfortunately,
this has to be in play before it can even become
anything, and then you have to kill off one of
their creatures before you can even shapeshift
this. This is just too situational for me to
recommend playing, and even when you do manage
to pull it off, it might not be worth it. Just
play Body Double instead.
In limited, still not that good, because you
have to get it into play before you nuke their
big creature, and until then all it is is a
highly overcosted body.

I'd say this was the fixed version of Volrath's
Shapeshifter if I didn't have a vague feeling it
was going to cause some rule problems of its own
in the future. Seeing as it specifically wants
creatures to go to graveyards, unlike Vesuvan
Shapeshifter, it's going to be quite difficult
to play. But I'm sure someone will try and find

I usually like shapeshifters. This may be one
of the few I don't think really cuts the
mustard. For 3 with an ability that you need to
pay for and only can be triggered when creatures
hit the yard "from play", it would need a better
P/T ratio to make the cut. I just can't see
it. In limited, seeing as so many creatures do
hit the yard, it may deserve a little more

It only copies dead creatures, and dead
creatures are dead because they either bad, or
that they're overwhelmed. Copying something like
that makes no sense, so this card is just bad.
I had the good fortune of playing this guy in a
money draft over the weekend (well we actually
played for cab fare from the venue we were at),
and the card was interesting. It was dominant,
but it was definitely a card that my opponents
had to worry about and focus on.
I'm not sure if it has any room in constructed
play. It is cheaper than most other
shapeshifters and that's one of the things that
makes it stand out. It also doesn't get to copy
anything immediately. It needs another creature
to die first and you have to keep an extra mana
A constructed dud. This card seems
strictly worse than Body Double since you don’t
get to abuse come-into-play effects.
In limited, this card has the
potential to be great as long as something else
amazing dies. Not a bomb by any stretch but
could make the cut.
Constructed: 3 for a 1/2 is okay and it can be
played in either blue, black, or any
combination. The ability can be usefull.
Changing into a dying creature is very
interesting idea. You will have to be able to
kill creatures that you what it to become. So it
will find a nich somewhere.
Casual: Don't really know how the casual crowd
around here will do with it. I am sure someone
will like it and use it for fun.
Limited: Not a very high pick in both sealed and
draft. I see a good use for it when one of your
creatures with perists dies and it can die and
come back and become a different creature, and
do some other weird stuff with it.
This card I do not really have any ideas on
right at this time, maybe sometime in the
