Give him Double Strike, and he quarters your opponent's life in one go.

Never really worth swinging unmorphed.

Sure you can flip him. So in turn he is really rigged.

@Arachibutyrophobia: That's kinda the point of the morph. The surprise factor doesn't cost that much.

@BegleOne:
> (play 3 card Monty with your other face-down morph creatures so that your opponent won't know which one to block next time either)
You're not allowed to do that. From the Comprehensive Rules:

707.6. If you control multiple face-down spells or face-down permanents, you must ensure at all times that your face-down spells and permanents can be easily differentiated from each other. This includes, but is not limited to, knowing the order spells were cast, the order that face-down permanents entered the battlefield, which creature attacked last turn, and any other differences between face-down spells or permanents. Common methods for distinguishing between face-down objects include using counters or dice to mark the different objects, or clearly placing those objects in order on the table.

You didn't draft much Onslaught Block, did you?
Besides the obvious fatties and first-strikers, try
Serpentine Basilisk
Broodhatch Nantuko
Karona's Zealot
Soul Collector

"When-blocked" triggers are hard to do with morph, but certainly a Tolarian Entrancer-like could have been done.

I'm not sure if this was obvious to everyone but me, but if you flip him right before he deals damage, you half your opponent and not yourself.

Of course it's designed to be flipped over after declaring attackers but before dealing damage to the opponent. Preferably after the opponents lets him through. Then you can use the in-block cards to flip him back over, (play 3 card Monty with your other face-down morph creatures so that your opponent won't know which one to block next time either), and then attack with him again.

But it's also a tool that can be used to combo with something if you need to lose lots of life in a hurry. Or you can combo it with something like Children of Korlis and use it as a tool to gain lots of life in a hurry as well. If he can get a single attack through, then you can play a Sanguine Bond and sacrifice a Child and you've probably won the game.

Jimbob-that won't work. It specifies COMBAT damage.

Double strike + Quitius Spike = Life goes down to 1/16 with a succesful swing.
