When Illusionary Servant becomes the target of a spell or ability, sacrifice it.
Shouldn't be too hard to get out and tops out your creature curve still... 4/4 instead of 3/4 and doesn't go boom.
Kira is not doing so hot in this deck because even if the ability is countered, you will sacrifice your Phantasmal Image . I like the muddle tech, but other than that you have to focus more on the tribal part of the deck.
18 island, 2 halimar depths
These 16 are the basics of the Illusions deck.
This will be well enough on the part of the illusion tribal. 15 cards left to go.
KrosanTusker Belive me Draining Whelk is amazing! Illusionary Servant is really good 3 drop but not much help late game or if Lord gets taken out and the Lord + Image combo fails somehow. Whereas draining whelk is really fun late game and can get ridiculously big.
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
