When Illusionary Servant becomes the target of a spell or ability, sacrifice it.
Even if Heroic triggered via abilities (which it doesn't) Phalanx Leader doesn't target anything. Something you want to consider if a triggered effect or ability is based off of something being targeted. I.E. Illusionary Servant would not have to be sacrificed by Phalanx Leader placing counters on it.
Mana Leak , Ponder , one more metamorph should be good in the mainboard.If you want an aggro approach, Phantasmal Bear and Illusionary Servant instead of AEther Figment .If you want a longer game, Meloku the Clouded Mirror , and/or Chronozoa instead of Narcomoeba .I also think Phantasmal Dragon would be good in general here :D
Mens' comment is sort of right if a little harsh. It can be competitive, it just depends on the kind of groups you play with and the kind of decks they play with.If you're new to the game or to deck building, don't be discouraged. You don't have to spend a tonne of money to make a deck that works well. A few tweaks and it's a fine first effort. He's right about needing counterspells though. Might I suggest Counterspell though rather than Negate . It costs the same and not only deals with Wrath of God and Damnation but deals with creature abilities like Reiver Demon and even Ivory Giant .twospires make several good points.Also, Illusionary Servant is much better value than Zephid if it's got hexproof because of Lord of the Unreal . If you got rid of that and, like twospires suggests, Illusionary Armor , it would reduce your mana curve so you could think about removing a little land and make it a bit more aggro.
you do not need another lord that does nothing by itself. Several Thassa, God of the Sea and Master of Waves would work well as well in place of Adaptive Automaton . Not all threats should be illusions really. If you go that route, you can substitute Krovikan Mist with Illusionary Servant for extra devotion.
