Every card in Time Spiral was a throwback to at least one previously printed card.

This card references the 'morph spider' that all morph creatures appear as when face down; the card's name references Ixidor, Reality Sculptor who created the first morph creatures.

Play with Vigean Hydropon or other similar cheap creatures with counters. Counters stay, so the Vigeon will suddenly become a 7/7 that *can* attack.

I have to say that this card is a clever answer to the recent Hypergenesis deck with things like Baneslayer Angels and Progenitus.

Combo with Massacre Wurm gogogo

I'm amazed this isn't an EDH staple. Few players will have Morph creatures, and you effectively have a blue creature wipe on your hands for only 5 CMC. Since large creatures are inevitable in a slow format, this bypasses everything, including Hexproof, Protection, Indestructible, and Shroud.

What's even better is he can be birthing podded into massacre wurm. Can also combo with ratchet bomb to be a true wrath.

Make all lands into creatures (with something like Natually Affinity) then cast this.

"Although the physical action is the same, transforming is not the same as being turned face down. This means that a double-faced card that transforms will not, for example, trigger Unblinking Bleb. Double-faced cards are always face up; they are never face down. If an effect (say, Ixidron) tries to turn a double-faced card face down, nothing happens."

Oh well.

One of my favorite cards in the game. It's budget, but so powerful. It universally controls all those fatties and overpriced mythics you play against but can't afford.

I run it in a BlueGreen deck with a White splash for Momentary Blink. It's great with graft creatures, as others have mentioned, although I prefer Plaxcaster Frogling and Cytoplast Root-kin over Vigean Hydropon. Either way, when your graft creatures flip over as 2/2s with +1/+1 counters still attached, I've seen a lot of one-sided battles.

I was lucky and pulled a Venser, the Sojourner. Between him, Blink with flashback, and a Mystic Snake or two for protection, Ixi can change the board for many turns!

@Goober Snotpants: Look again, friend. 'All non-token creatures' means your tokens are unaffected.

But this could be better than Wrath of God for a blue deck annoyed by giant green things.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
