Don't know why I've been thinking the weird thoughts, but hey, why not, eh?

Convincing Replicas |
Artifact {C}
Convincing Replicas may block as though it were a creature.
When Convincing Replicas blocks a creature, sacrifice it.
"Ach! Hans, run! It's the Lhurgoyf!"



Or, because people like the more complex stuff...

Convincing Replicas |
Artifact {R}
Convincing Replicas may block as though it were a creature. When it does, it becomes a copy of target creature, except it becomes an artifact. (It is no longer a creature.)
When Convincing Replicas blocks a creature, sacrifice it.


I actually like the first one more, because it's really simple and weird in a fun way. It's barely worth being a card, and for some reason I like that. Plus, I can just see a card as a bunch of sticks in the ground, with signs attached to them that look like creatures, shoddily painted to look like real creatures.

I like the flavor but this seems like it could be better accomplished with a curtain of light-style sac ability.

True, likely better done (without confusion) with the following text:

: Target creature becomes blocked. Sacrifice Convincing Replicas.

But I think this is pretty fun to actually have it block.

You get an emblem with "Lands you control may block as though they were creatures." (Treat this as though a blocking creature had turned into a noncreature permanent after blocking.)

Perfect for my deck surgery deck.
