Draft Priority: 3
Stack Status: 5
Well, we all know my policy on Morph creatures. Unless their effect is “when Durp King is turned face up, kick yourself in the dick as hard as you can”, it’s probably going to go into the stack. And even Derp King might make it as a ‘skill testing’ card. After all, you need as much Willbender Camouflage as possible. But Skinthinner is actually pretty good.
A useful effect that’s overcosted means this is exactly the type of card that deserves a chance at redemption int he loving infinite embrace of Type 4, and in that environment Skinthinner becomes another faithful utility player. Sure, he’s probably never going to burst out of that disgusting, weird morph-spider thing and single-handedly win you a game. But he’ll be there, time and time again with his disgusting trail of flesh sniping nonblack creatures and showing off his sick chains.
Just when you were 100% confident that it was a Willbender, it turns out to be a Skinthinner… which is a Willbender.
Overall: Three and a half Willbender Camouflages out of five
