Gudul Lurker
 
I'm not sure that Gudul Lurker will end upbeing played in constructed, but if it is, it'll probably be cast very rarely for its morph cost. There's always been a market for evasive blue creatures, going all the way back to Flying Men; Unstable Mutation may not be a thing in new Standard environments, but the ability to put someone under pressure starting from the first turn is always worth looking into. I suppose you could also make a deck with lots of megamorph creatures where you cast everything face down and your opponent always feels like they killed the wrong one, no matter what you turn face up. It sounds pretty complicated to figure out, but I bet it would be fun!

Today's card of the day is Gudul Lurker which is a one mana Blue 1/1 that can't be blocked and has Megamorph for one Blue.  Only Triton Shorestalker and Tormented Soul also offer a truly unblockable creature at one mana, so this would see play for that alone.  The Megamorph option adds middle to late game power to use excess mana and apply increased pressure and threat to an opponent's life ponts.  Overall this is a very solid card that would see play across multiple formats even without Megamorph, so the addition opens up additional potential and combinations.
 
In Limited this is a strong second or third pick in Booster as it is more or less guaranteed damage that can be played at any stage of the game.  With the single Blue in the casting or Megamorph costs it can be part of a secondary or even tertiary color in Sealed and is easily supported by most builds with any +1/+1 counters or other power enhancing options.
