Official Rulings for Evil Twin
9/22/2011 : If you copy a double-faced creature, Evil Twin will be a copy of the face that's up when Evil Twin enters the battlefield. Because Evil Twin is not a double-faced card, it won't be able to transform.
9/22/2011 : If the chosen creature has in its mana cost, X is considered to be zero.
9/22/2011 : If the chosen creature is copying something else (for example, if the chosen creature is another Evil Twin), then your Evil Twin enters the battlefield as whatever the chosen creature copied.
9/22/2011 : If the chosen creature is a token, Evil Twin copies the original characteristics of that token as stated by the effect that put the token onto the battlefield. Evil Twin is not a token.
9/22/2011 : Any enters-the-battlefield abilities of the copied creature will trigger when Evil Twin enters the battlefield. Any "as [this creature] enters the battlefield" or "[this creature] enters the battlefield with" abilities of the chosen creature will also work.
9/22/2011 : If Evil Twin somehow enters the battlefield at the same time as another creature, Evil Twin can't become a copy of that creature. You may only choose a creature that's already on the battlefield.
9/22/2011 : You can choose not to copy anything. In that case, Evil Twin enters the battlefield as a 0/0 creature, and is probably put into the graveyard immediately.
