1 being the worst. 3 ...
5 is the highest rating.
is sick in all formats. When you get this guy on
the table he rules the school in more way than
one. He flies, he blocks , he attacks, he taps
like 50 times a turn, he's awesome. I won a PTQ
with this guy. He's the best.
Zabba, youse my only friend.
3/3s for 5 aren't all that great, but this guy's
abilities combine to make a nigh invulnerable
killing machine. I hate his existence, but
the main reason for that is his power, so he gets
is the sickest, most broken creature ever made by
WOTC. With enough mana he is untargetable, flies,
and can change his power and toughness so as to
make him very hard to kill. I believe that serious
blue players all have shrines to this creature in
their unmanly little living rooms. In limited he
is only 90% broken.
the King of many of blue decks. What doesn't
this card do besides clean your kitchen sink
an argument could be made that it could do that,
This card is great in any base-blue
Wait, I'm sorry, beyond great.
In limited, this is still amazing. Evasion,
tricks, untargetable. What more could you
All hail the king!

Whatever the hell you call it, just be sure to
call it G-O-O-D !
If this card doesn't get at least a four from
everyone, I might need to make some house calls :)

opened Morphling in Los Angeles at the Pro Tour at
my second table. I was
already 1-3 so I had no chance of making second
day, but I knew I could win
this table. Morphling is that good. I proceeded
to 3-0 the table with one
of the best u/w decks I have ever drafted.
I'll always have a fond spot in
my heart for that Morphling.
Then there is the Morphlings I was playing with in
Urza's Block Constructed.
The one that died to a Masticore shooting
I killed many Morphlings that day. People
Morphling is one of the best cards ever printed in
Magic. I do not think
its unbalanced but it is very, very good. 5
out of 5 in both formats.
Morphling is on the short SHORT list of best
creatures ever. It's near impossible to
think of a bigger bomb in a limited format.
set the stage for you. Seattle, 1997.
Wizards R&D all crams into someone's
Volkswagen Beetle headed towards the local Indian
restaurant for lunch. Suddenly, some jackass
in a Subaru pulls out in front of them.
Unable to stop in time, they go crashing into the
Subaru, all dying instantly. It is now
rumored they all went to heaven (though this can
not be confirmed). In heaven, they speak
with God. He discusses all their sins, like
Sorrow's Path, Sword of the Chosen, and Avoid
Fate. The team profusely apologizes for
their lack of judgment and promise that if given
another chance that they would go back and make a
card in God's likeness. Intrigued by the
idea, God gives them another chance. They
are sent back down to earth into the Beetle.
A little shaken up, a few bruises, but not
dead. Remembering their promise to God, they
go straight back to headquarters and start work on
their greatest card ever.
now you know the story of Morphling. People
have been calling this card "Cardboard
Jesus" for years. Now you know the true
story. Now you know it's not his Son, but
our Lord himself, "Cardboard God"
this card every chance you get. First pick
in limited. A reason to play blue at
virtually any stage in a draft. The most

The only problem with Morphling in Limited is that
might not get enough blue to support it all that
Other than that, it's a definite first pick.
hasn't been said about Morphling in Constructed
besides "It sucks"? Definitely
worth a 5.
