Awesome way of doing ridiculous things to every creature on the board.

- Path to Exile = Lotsa lands.
- @Iondragonx: Pongify = Turns a game of magic into something really hilarious xD.
^ Ovinize also makes for great fun.
- Echoing Courage = Crazy pumping - especially if you're playing tokens.
- Threaten/Act of Treason = Gain control of all creatures until end of turn (!!).
^ Slave of Bolas is awesome for this job if you're playing 5 color.
- Weight of Spires = awesome if you're not playing too many nonbasics yourself.
- Cytoshape = Makes all creatures a copy of something until end of turn. Groundbreaker anyone?
- Lightning Helix = 3 damage to all creatures, and you gain a ton of life .. Good for control i guess?
- Magma Jet = 2 damage t... (see all)

This + Illicit Auction = Everyone folds.

Donovan, Spitting Image would create a copy of every creature on the field and you would control all of them, including the copies of your opponents creatures.

Another very cool thing about this card that I realized is that it synergizes very well with Splice onto Arcane. Toss out a Psychic Puppetry onto Ink-Treader. Then, you can splice on a cantrip effect with Evermind, Get a million little tokens with Spiritual Visit (and targets for your next spells), a bunch of creatures (if you had any) withThrough the Breach, mill the opponent for a billion with Dampen Thought, or have a bunch of red mana with Desperate Ritual.

Like, I don't see why people haven't thought of this before!

RTR's Nivmagus Elemental gives you a sink to get rid of all your unwanted copies. Why use it as a sweeper when you can use it as a one-sided sweeper that's also a massive buff spell?

Can do better than electrolyze:
Cards with cantrip effects like Cerulean Wisps are very useful for getting to that Aether Mutation or Act of Treason for the win. And to fix mana, how about a signet of each color combination without black? Fun stuff, ive got the makings for a deck around this guy in the mail, im stoked.

great design for a four color card.
R/U = great in creating copies of spells
G/W = benefit in having multiple creatures

Fun stuff!


Let's play the lottery!

Rite of Replication and kick it believe me, the 9 mana is worth it to copy the world!

@Gezu: Ink-Treader only triggers when you PLAY (now CAST) a spell. The copies that it creates are not Played/Cast, and are thus not copied again. Therefore two ITN in play won't create an infinite loop.
