The most spectacular Nephilim! And very BlueRed, less so the other colors. Again, why wasn't this legendary?

Act of Treason and swing with everything. If that doesn't end the game, Cloudshift.

They're never going to errata these guys to be legendary. But if that's stopping you making a Commander deck with one at the helm, you don't know Commander/EDH very well. It's about having fun, both making decks and in playing, and the rules given by the Rules Committee are a guideline to be followed by each group to their own discretion; ask the people you play with if they wouldn't mind you running a deck with this as its Commander/General. If they say it's okay, go build it. If they don't, well, shucks. Just remember if they do say yes and you build it to treat it as if it's legendary then, because that's what you wanted. As in, Spitting Image will make you sacrifice him and the copy you get of him. That'll still give you copies of everything else, though, so it might be worth it!

This one is my favorite. The others seem to similar to cards already out there; while this guy is similar to Radiate or Hive Mind (cards I lo... (see all)

Almost WhiteBlueBlackRedGreen already, it wouldn't be hard to imagine some of these ideas happening in multiplayer.

Block with all your guys, then cast Righteousness or Undying Evil on ol' Ink-Treader.

Proteus Staff would be RIDICULOUS - put ALL creatures on the bottom of their owner's library, and replace each with whatever comes up first.

Graceful Reprieve would be Living End-ish.

You could also play him with tribal: Victim of Night for "monsters" or Eyeblight's Ending in an elf deck.

Don't Chastise him, or I'll have to Intervene. I know, bad joke.

Spawning Breath is more than a little hilarious with this card, and sets up nicely for a Rite of Replication

Vindicate + Nivmagus Elemental + this = you win?

I built a casual deck where the win condition is splicing something that can target, usually {c}kodama's might onto Path of Anger's Flame{/c If there aren't enough creatures, I can splice psychic puppetry onto spiritual visit the turn before, which prevents blockers also. Needless to say, the mana base is the largest problem...

Amusingly, isn't black. One-sided boardwipe in reanimator? Why, I do believe I shall.

Cast mirrorweave on this guy (all the other copies should resolve first, and the one targetting him will resolve last, making every other creature a copy of ink-treader)

Cast echoing courage.

Do lots of math.
