Pretty Much the card to have if you want to assemble an intense army of faceless creatures.
Can also get over powered morph creatures into play cheap, like krosan colossus and krosan cloudscraper.

I find it amusing that he has synergy with Akroma, Angel of Fury but not Akroma, Angel of Wrath.

Wow, now I really want to make a deck with this, Ixidron and Venser, the Sojourner. Ixidron turns all creatures face-down, then you play Ixidor and turn your creatures face up. Use Venser to bounce Ixidron for his etb effect, or bounce your face down creatures to turn them face up(?) Not entirely sure that works, would be awesome if it does. I'll have to look it up.

I play Red / Blue with Ixidors, Dream Chisles, Shirk alarmists, Demorplasms and a ton of really, really expensive morph creatures.

Shirk alarmist + Demorplasm = free Morpher every turn.
Dream Chisles makes everything faster.
Peity Charm + Erratic explosion leads to 7-10 damage for 3 with all the morphs around.
And then rush of knowledge will finish the game next turn. After drawing 6-10 cards you have enough dream chisles to lay every morph creature down for free.

My absolute favorite character in magic lore. Great lore to card conversion too with the creator of the morph creatures being their 'lord'. He is a solid card, but I wish he cost 2BlueBlue, at that he would be a powerhouse. I am sad they killed him off, and we didn't even get a card for the black version mentioned in time spiral. Here is my mock-up of one, for fun:

3BlackBlack Ixidor the Forsaken
Legendary Creature - Human Wizard
Whenever a permanent is turned face up target creature gets -3/-3 until end of turn.
2Black: Turn target face up creature face-down. (It's a 2/2 creature.)

I think he has interesting play with other morph creatures. I made the first ability -3/-3 over the -2/-2 needed to kill face-down creatures so he wouldn't have anti-synergy with the actual Ixidor card. The idea is a thematic opposite who turned to destruction, not creation, to get past his sorrow.

Please bring back morph, Wizards.

Ixidor is my favorite mentally unstable pit fighter illusionist artist with an obsession to kill Kamahl's sister from a fantasy series.

the only problem with this guy is his reverse-synergy with Ixidron. he'll pump up all of your opponent's creatures. sure, you could cheat krosan colossus into play, but they can then triple-block him and kill him. I think though that at the end of the day you'll come out with card advantage.
