Not quite sure how to phrase this. Does the copy effect work without copying the result of another copy?

The idea is, you can permute your creatures however you please (but they go back to normal after this turn). I'm not sure what it should cost: it's usually worthless, but might be really useful occasionally. Or maybe it should only be a swap effect, but maybe usable more than once?

It lets you re-arrange blocking - your big creature didn't get blocked, your little creature didn't get killed; etc. It's a one-off, but it's a game winning "Oh, you dind't block something? My 8/8 that didn't even attack eats your face".

And, eesh, it's also a one-time untap too.

Phrasing is indeed kinda horrible. Maybe just "UEOT, each creature you control is a different creature you control" and then FAQ the heck out of it :)
