Illusionary Servant Discussion

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 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:
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):
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.

I tend to disagree with Phantasmal Image and Phyrexian Metamorph as they will kill off the majority of illusion creatures which I run. AEther Vial , while not a "bad card" by any means, is inconsistent by nature, which is something I wish to avoid if possible. Tectonic Edge 's function is already being served by Ghost Quarter , which I prefer given that it can be activated before my opponent gets 4 lands onto the field. As for Muddle the Mixture ... I've tried that card before, and it feels out of place in an aggro deck, as you are prone to wasting a turn (usually turn 3 when I could be playing Grand Architect or Illusionary Servant etc) to fetch a card. This problem is exacerbated against Miracles and other control decks, as the use of Muddle's transmute notifies said control players that I have a very good card in hand which is likely worth a counter. Krovikan Mist is certainly a good idea, and I will test that one out in the deck for sure.
