I'm looking forward to envoking the all mighty morph rule again, so there's that.Daymo said:Morph has so many combat possibilities, Onslaught and future sight were before my time, but just looking at the cards and knowing when to flip them or to play them unmorphed makes them seem great. Keeping track of multiple morphs at once might get annoying though.Souplex said:Now that most of the keywords have been announced, it looks like I'm going to be rolling with the Abzan houses. (WBG)
None of the keywords particularly thrill me like the ones in Return To Ravnica did.
Also; apparently Morph was a highly requested returning mechanic.
Who requested morph? As far as I was aware, it was a gimmick that was used in one set that nobody had any strong feelings about and was quickly forgotten.
(For you guys who don't know, Morph caused a bit of an honesty issue in tournaments. See, you're not allowed to look at the face down morphed card, which opens up cheating possibilities. People were playing, say, an Island as a morphed 2/2 which, if you were to do when your opponent had 2 life left and no way to deal with it, would allow them to swing for game. So a rule was put into place that forces both players to reveal any and all hidden cards on the battlefield once the game had ended, so you could make sure there was no non-morph cards played as morphed 2/2's. The rule itself became a little relevant when Lorwyn was in standard with the hideaway lands.)
