@wizardofthewest00 Thanks for the reply. Yeah I have a playset of Illusionary Servants sort of on a sideboard. Trying with Phantom Warriors for now though.

I really like in every illusion tribal Illusionary Servant 1 because for the hexproof most of the times he is untouchable then a good blockable and\or a great attacker

Even when you respond to spells with Redirect or any counterspells...once the spell targets your illusion, the sac ability will trigger no matter if the spell that targeted has been redirected or countered. Replace Tamiyo as she is way too slow with Modern being quite fast paced. Halcyon Glaze would be pretty good. And replace Phantasmal Abomination with 2 Illusionary Servant's.

I'd cut the Phantasmal Abominations for two more Illusionary Servants, the abominations just don't help your game plan of killing fast at all.

Also, replace a couple islands with a blue fetch such as Polluted Delta or Flooded Strand, to work with your halimar depths.

I will add Adaptive Automaton and Distant Melody and remove Phantasmal Abomination, Illusory Angel, and Illusionary Servant. I will also increase the number of AEther Figment's and Chronozoa's. I wont be adding Jace's Phantasm or Thought Scour because this is not a mill deck. I wont add Jace's Mindseeker because it costs too much for this deck. Thanks for the suggestions!

Q. "What should I replace Illusory Angel and Phantasmal Abomination with?"

A . Adaptive Automaton and Jace's Phantasm. Jace's Phantasm can be a first turn 1 drop that will be a beast on turn 4 With all of the +1/+1 given from the Adaptive Automaton, Lord of the Unreal and copies of there copies. they also allow you to keep 1 or 2 copies of Illusory Angel because you can easily cast both on the same turn. I might consider:

-4 Phantasmal Abomination

-2 Illusory Angel

-2 Illusionary Servant

-2 Summoner's Bane

Lastly I thought of Distant Melody and wonder if that kind of card advantage would be worth the slot.

Just my thoughts. But other then that I like it very much. +1

The 'white creatures' cause may be a problem, forgott that. You could use Righteous Charge, but you will lose instant speed. But I don't think its a problem, since its a beatdown deck. You could do stuff like this (in best case scenario):

T1- Cloudfin RaptorT2-Cloudfin Raptor,Loyal Pegasus, swing for 1.T3-Righteous Charge, swing for 12.T4,T5, more fliers. Probably T4 win without removal.


T1- Cloudfin RaptorT2-Cloudfin Raptor,Loyal Pegasus, swing for 1.T3-Illusionary Servant, swing for 5T4-Righteous Charge, swing for 16. gg

I like that sort of strategy, but g2 your opponents will sideboard in more burn/bounce for early desruption. You could run some Gods Willing, Dispel, or even Mana Tithe on the sideboard to prevent it.

And I believe 4x Journey to Nowhere are enough removal for a aggro deck, since you'll be focused in curving your dudes with max mana efficiency. You'll hardly use more than 1. Consider Curse of Chains instead of Journey to Nowhere, since you can cast it with either 2U or 2W.
