Illusionary Servant Discussion

Nice deck, I'm actually working on an Illusions deck myself.

I would not recommend Gossamer Phantasm though as it is rather weak for its mana-cost.
I would rather go with the cheaper Jace's Phantasm.
While Phantasmal Dragon is big it seems too slow, I would suggest Illusory Angel (or Illusionary Servant) instead.

Other cards worth considering:

  1. Monastery Siege - it can actually protect your creatures or loot for more creatures.

  2. Wings of Velis Vel - a strictly better Dance of the Skywise here and a nice combo with Lord of the Unreal.

  3. Thassa, God of the Sea - worth considering for every mono-blue creature deck.

Here is my deck btw (it splashes White) -

Azorius Illusions aggro

And here is the mono-blue list that I started with:

I've some updates to the deck and have some new ideas I wanted to ask about:

Will Tragic Slip be good for this deck as compared to Disfigure ?
What about Vapor Snag ?

How is Stitched Drake as a possible 3-drop for this deck ?
It is probably reasonable to get a creature in the GY during the first couple of turns and although it's not an Illusion it seems easier to cast than Illusory Angel and harder to kill than Illusionary Servant.

Another 3-drop option I thought about is Vexing Sphinx which is a big evasive beater ahead of curve which replaces itself and can cycle unnecessary Vials and Lands.

Are these two worth including ?

What about Illusionary Servant instead of Phantasmal Abomination? The deck seems to want to be the aggressor in most match ups, and flying always helps.

Illusionary Servant over AEther Figment. Also, why Clout of the Dominus? It'll make you sac most of your creatures, and even if you enchant the ones that don't get sacrificed; they'll most likely get Hexproof anyway...Why not replace those with 3 Serum Visions?

Thank you for the suggestions.

  1. I consider adding 1x Adaptive Automaton, 1x Kira, Great Glass-Spinner and 1x Illusory Angel in place of 3x Illusionary Servant.

  2. I think that Discard and removal might be more beneficial to this deck than Counterspells so I consider replacing 4x Countersquall with: 1x Duress, 1x Inquisition of Kozilek and 2x Smother (or some other removal), what do you think ?

  3. Also, is adding 2x Bile Blight as a MD answer to Tokens (and possibly Elves) a good idea ?

  4. The deck suffers quite a bit from self-inflicted damage with: Fetches, Shocks, Dark Confidant, Dismember (this is the reason I picked Inquisition of Kozilek over Thoughtseize for the MB), anything I can play to mitigate it ?
