Creature â Shapeshifter
As Vesuvan Shapeshifter enters the battlefield or is turned face up, you may choose another creature on the battlefield. If you do, until Vesuvan Shapeshifter is turned face down, it becomes a copy of that creature, except it has "At the beginning of your upkeep, you may turn this creature face down."
Morph (You may cast this card face down as a 2/2 creature for . Turn it face up any time for its morph cost.)
When Vesuvan Shapeshifter is turned face down, its copy effect wears off. While itâ€™s face down, itâ€™s a 2/2 face-down Vesuvan Shapeshifter that can be turned face up for a morph cost of .
Vesuvan Shapeshifterâ€™s ability to become a copy is a replacement effect. Because turning a creature face up and applying replacement effects both donâ€™t use the stack, players wonâ€™t be able to take actions between the time you announce that youâ€™re turning Vesuvan Shapeshifter face up and the time it has become a copy of the creature of your choice.
Vesuvan Shapeshifter copies exactly what was printed on the original creature (unless that creature is copying something else or is a token; see below). It doesnâ€™t copy whether that creature is tapped or untapped, whether it has any counters on it or Auras attached to it, or any non-copy effects that have changed its power, toughness, types, color, or so on.
If Vesuvan Shapeshifter somehow enters the battlefield at the same time as another creature, Vesuvan Shapeshifter canâ€™t become a copy of that creature. You may only choose a creature thatâ€™s already on the battlefield.
If Vesuvan Shapeshifter copies a face-down creature, it becomes a face-up 2/2 colorless, nameless creature with no abilities other than the one it gives itself.
If the chosen creature is copying something else (for example, if the chosen creature is another Vesuvan Shapeshifter), then Vesuvan Shapeshifter copies whatever the chosen creature copied.
If the chosen creature is a token, Vesuvan Shapeshifter copies the original characteristics of that token as stated by the effect that created the token. Vesuvan Shapeshifter is not a token in this case.
If the chosen creature has in its mana cost, X is considered to be 0.
If another creature copies Vesuvan Shapeshifter while itâ€™s face up and copying another creature, the new creature will become a copy of whatever Vesuvan Shapeshifter is copying and gain the â€œyou may turn this creature face downâ€ ability. It wonâ€™t gain morph . If that creature is then turned face down, its copy effect will continue and itâ€™ll be a face-down version of whatever itâ€™s copying. If the creature itâ€™s copying has morph, it can be turned face up. If the creature itâ€™s copying doesnâ€™t have morph, itâ€™s stuck face down.
Any enters-the-battlefield abilities of the copied creature will trigger when Vesuvan Shapeshifter enters the battlefield. Any â€œas [this creature] enters the battlefieldâ€ or â€œ[this creature] enters the battlefield withâ€ abilities of the chosen creature will also work as it enters the battlefield. Similarly, any â€œ[when/as] [this creature] is turned face upâ€ abilities of the chosen creature will work if Vesuvan Shapeshifter is turned face up.
