Assuming I have Master of the Veil face down and Stratus Dancer face up, can I flip Stratus Dancer back over with Master of the Veil? I do not know of Megamorph falls under Morph. Are they completely different, or is Megamorph and instance of Morph?

Master of the Veil is able to turn Stratus Dancer facedown.

Rule 702.36b defines Megamorph as a morph variant, and so Master of the Veil's oracle'd ability can target a face up Stratus Dancer.


Oracle text:

When Master of the Veil is turned face up, you may turn target creature with a morph ability face down.

702.36. Morph:

702.36a Morph is a static ability that functions in any zone from which you could play the card it’s on, and the morph effect works any time the card is face down. “Morph [cost]” means “You may cast this card as a 2/2 face-down creature with no text, no name, no subtypes, and no mana cost by paying {3} rather than paying its mana cost.” (See rule 707, “Face-Down Spells and Permanents.”)
702.36b Megamorph is a variant of the morph ability. “Megamorph [cost]” means “You may cast this card as a 2/2 face-down creature with no text, no name, no subtypes, and no mana cost by paying {3} rather than paying its mana cost” and “As this permanent is turned face up, put a +1/+1 counter on it if its megamorph cost was paid to turn it face up.” A megamorph cost is a morph cost.

    Alright, I did not know if Megamorph fell under the Morph umbrella or not. – Shadow Z. Sep 4 '19 at 1:54

    @ShadowZ. Even without looking through the comprehensive rules, your Gatherer link for the Dancer says "Megamorph is a variant of the morph ability. You can find more information on morph on cards with morph from the Khans of Tarkir set." – Arthur Sep 4 '19 at 5:22
  • @arthur I did not read too much on Stratus Dancer as it was just meant to be an example of Megamorph, and I instead focused on reading about the Master of the Veil instead, checking it's gatherer page more. My bad, it was a mistake/oversight on my part. – Shadow Z. Sep 4 '19 at 15:16
