Neutralize is always a better choice than Cancel, because it has cycling. Hydra's Growth might suit this deck well, perhaps replacing a Hunter's Edge and one or two Lorescale Coatls.

Flooremoji on Modern Phantasms

Phantom Warrior, Cancel and See Beyond are all bad.

Cyclonic Rift is very lackluster in modern, I would reccomend replacing them with Brazen Borrowers.

I can't ever justify paying the transmute cost for Muddle (it's also usually a less than ideal counterspell), I would reccomend just putting in better cards in it's place than a tutor for Lord of the Unreal.

Consider somthing along the lines of Remand or more Mana Leak for stall. Krovikan Mist is probably your best illusion, I think 4 are mandatory considering how bad illusions are.

Maybe Spark Double?

Serum Visions could be an okay replacement for See Beyond.

Force of Negation is amazing in most blue decks.

Tbh I feel like whatever you do with Illusions it's just going to be a worse spirits/merfolk tribal deck with none of the advantages.

Barbarian_Sun_Pope on Excuse me, but I believe you took my artifacts...

Have you considered Stoic Rebuttal as an alternative to Cancel. It can become a Counterspell as the game goes on. Spell Swindle and Hornswoggle could also be good alternatives as they generate additional artifacts with the counter. Hope this helps.

It was mostly for included because oF CMC. Good call, but I would pick Memory Lapse over Cancel simply for tempo reasons and in certain situations could act as a Time Walk effect.

Is there a reason for Deprive over Cancel which is just a change of tempo? Deprive, in my understanding, was only played to bounce Mystic Sanctuary, which is now banned.

PuddinWing on Dimir Precinct 6 Consumer

You could add in Drown in the Loch in place of Murder and Didn't Say Please or Perplex in place of Cancel. Also, Thieves' Guild Enforcer could be fun.

Sultai_Sir on Golos Big Mana

1 month ago

This is a great deck! I've always wanted to build around Golos, and this seems like the best way to satisfy my inner Timmy. Anyways, here are a couple of suggestions:

Omniscience: The perfect card for Golos, this makes all the big cards stuck in your hand free and easy to cast.

Brainstorm: It's a simple card, but it offers some topdeck manipulation, and with fetchlands, which you're running, it's a broken card, essentially being a draw three for 1 mana.

Nyxbloom Ancient: What a card. each of your lands and mana rocks taps for three times as much. This'll help you dump your hand every turn with ease.

And now, for some cuts:

Ramunap Excavator: A good card with fetchlands, but not worth the slot.

Myojin of Life's Web: It only gets a divinity counter when cast from your hand. which isn't often.

Force of Will: As iconic as it is, in this deck, only a quarter of the cards you're running are blue, so Force of will is just a 5-mana Cancel.

Hope these suggestions help, and as always, happy Tapping!
