That art is so gruesome.

Transfigure looks sort of like Transmute...

Transfigure is a great ability, but I feel it's more in line with blue, you know, the 'illusion' and 'shapeshifting' color.
I want to see transfigure return as a mainly blue ability.

good for grabbing Zur the Enchanter

I really like Transfigure. I hope they use it as a keyword in a future set sometime.

We probably won't see this ability returning anythime soon. MaRo has stated that they don't want to pick Transmute up again because tutoring seeps a lot of fun from the game, so I don't see why this would be any different.
It is fun, though. The graveyard-filling, morbid-triggering part is as good as the turoring.
I'd be happier if it could search for any kind of permanent, though. You can never have too many ways to tutor a Grave Pact.

I'd like it better if transfigure gave the searched creature haste.
Let's compare it to Diabolic Tutor, bear with me:

Demonic Tutor:
-Keeps search a secret
-Not limited to 4 cc or creatures
-Searched card is counter bait, but otherwise opponent cant deal with it yet.

-Sorcery (essentially)
-Can serve as a weak attacker/blocker (though dying would defeat its purpose)
-Ability doesn't allow "when you cast __" abilities to trigger
-Fills your graveyard with a creature, which is usually more helpful than a sorcery
-Transfigured card is uncounterable, but opponent has more options of getting rid of your "tutor"

I dunno, If it gave haste it would, I believe, put it more on par with diabolic tutor, giving it a surprise factor. After all, diabolic tutor is a "fixed" card anyway.
Meh, 3/5

Faceless Butcher was always a cool card with this cmc

Attract, you can still Stifle Transfigure. Then the Fleshwrither just dies for naught.

@Attract: You could search for something that already has haste. Like Blazing Specter or Barbed Shocker, or Hellhole Rats. I see a theme here. Or a Changeling Berserker.
