Love the flavor of this card. Pay attention to the art. At first I thought he was the angry guy about to chuck the Skycloud Egg at someone, but really, the Aphetto Alchemist is the sketchy guy in back with the mustache, riling the other guy up.

Yes you can

He targets himself, and taps a cost
His ability resolves, untapping his target (himself)

The creature you choose doesn't have to be tapped to use it on itself, you can 'waste' it on any creature

Very powerful and versatile ability. Essentially double's any other artifacts or creatures tap ability for {1}{U}, which is most likely less than playing another copy of the artifact/creature. With 2 toughness it can block the humblest critters or just substitute for vigilance for that big guy.
Seat of the Synod is pretty unexpected combo aswell.

Never really used the morph ability, as I'd like to cast some tap card for {3} (or some other card for {4} with Seat of the Synod in play) on my 3rd turn. Temple Bell is a perfect example. Make the 2 draws at end of opponents next turn and follow up with 2x Ebony Owl Netsuke on turn 4, then draw another 2 cards to hit for 8. Throw in a few bounce cards, and you've got a deck.

This is ridiculous with Wake Thrasher

Surprise untapping doesn't suck, but it'd better be a big surprise to justify morphing this.

Time Vault ftw

Wouldn't you be able to untap with his own ability?

combo w/ Time Vault

@Doom_Pie and Qazior

Best with both! Have them both keep untapping themselves for infinite counters on Wake Thrasher.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
