Probably Houdini in tactical mode will remind you of it.
However, Houdini will play better than Morphy would on current hardware.
Matefinder Stockfish is another option.

I assume you are looking for tactical brilliance, like Morphy or Tal.
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

Chessmaster... strings for "DeadKing" to Fritz: opp=100 opn=100 opb=100 opr=100 opq=100 myp=100 myn=100 myb=103 myr=100 myq=101 mycc=125 mymob=200 myks=85 mypp=90 oppp=90 mypw=90 oppw=90 opcc=125 opks=85 opmob=150 avd=-25 cfd=0 sop=100 rnd=0 sel=9 md=99 cfd=1
But according to the tests of other personalities it is not very similar to the masters, but rather the wishes of the authors ...
