@Jeremywar: That's not how imprint works. Imprint only counts the card that was exiled with THAT imprint process: If you flicker, bounce, or otherwise remove Clone Shell, when it comes back into play it is a different CREATURE (not creature card, creature, there is a difference), its previous state (and, by extension, imprinted card) is ignored.

Played a mean psychological game knowing my opponent was going to try out his new stealing deck. Played a U/B artifact deck and laid down Summoner's Egg with Bronze Bombshell. Opponent proceeded take possession of it and crack it open, only to swear at me when it blew up. I snickered and waited for him to pass the turn, where I then dropped Clone Shell and picked a card to slip under him. My opponent gave me a look and threw a couple bolts at it, whereupon it popped and revealed that I had just exiled another Summoner's Egg. I snickered at him for wasting his spells and imprinted it with Phage the Untouchable. My opponent, not sure what to do, just decided to leave the egg alone since I couldn't attack with it. I shrugged and donated it before dropping Steel Golem. In that turn, I both revealed that I could donate, and showed him something he really didn't want me to give him, so he started drop... (see all)

Pretty usefull in the right deck. A 2/2 for five isin't that great, but the fact that you could get a Progenitus or Emrakul when it dies makes it alright.

Hello Clone Shell, meet Sarkhan the Mad. Pay five for a 5/5 flyer plus a big beefy critter? Yes please.

Fantastic for getting out that large mana costed creature. Will be very welcome in my U/R Eldrazi deck :)

Eh. I'm not feeling it. Too expensive for what it does.

I don't like it that much, simply because the ability has been there this way too often. So for my taste: too boring. 2/2 for 5 sucks as well, and it's mostly useless unless you are lucky or stacked your library. Not to mention that when the shapeshifter is bounced or exiled or whatever, you also lose the imprinted card permanently.

This works so well with Artisan of Kozilek. Put a 10/9 Annihilator 2 out, and then get Clone Shell to do it again.
