Hello Mimic Vat.

With shadow being a underused ability this guy will give you a creature w/o the fear of getting disenchanted. 4/5.

However, even a shower of sparks could kill it... 2.5/5

This guy can seriously ruin someone's day if they can't deal with it fast enough, even though it's pretty fragile. It's kind of a dick move, but I want to run this in an EDH deck with shroud effects to lock down the opponent's commander.

they aren't. no new dauthi or soltari cards have been printed either.

This would usually be a reliable way to steal a creature, especially since practically no one bothers to run shadow defense anymore. However, its a little to expensive for its strength, and you can only use it once. 3.5/5

Thalakos? This is the first time I have seen creature type Thalakos. . .
For 4 mana, you can use Control Magic and take opponent's creature with ease . .
However, your opponent can easily destroy the enchantment and gain the creature back . .
This has some ups and downs, but I would rather go with the enchantment though.
I will give it 3.5/5

As originally worded, shouldn't this be able to deal its combat damage, THEN sacrifice as an activated ability?
Besides the 1-damage difference, Azorius Guildmage etc care.
