Hi SprScuba,

There are familiar foundations in this deck, similar in many ways to Owl-ing Mine (not my deck, but it inspired my own take on owl-ing mine), but with a different and possibly more fragile payoff. My initial thought is that your deck would struggle against other decks which aren't particularly creature focussed; heavy discard (8-rack), Storm and other go-wide strategies (Affinity / 8-Wack / Pyromancer / BW Tokens). Now if your meta is filled with good-stuff creature decks then this is exactly the sort of deck that can prey on that, but metas change...

I wouldn't particularly worry about enchantment removal, it is far less common, especially since Black and Red don't have access to it, but I would worry about facing decks which aren't creature focussed or go-wide. One of the easiest fixes I can think of is to play the Biovisionary combo. Splashing Green would give you access to ramp and Herald of the Pantheon too, which could help play those enchantments. Though if the aim was Biovisionary then Renegade Doppelganger and Cackling Counterpart would be good choices, maybe even one of Progenitor Mimic.

If you are planning to stay in mono blue, then you need an alternative win-con, the two obvious ones being Thing in the Ice  Flip and Cryptic Serpent, but even an Illusory Angel or Riptide Chimera could work. Your also not running any clones, per say Cryptoplasm or Phantasmal Image are the first that come to mind.

I guess what my comment boils down to is that your deck needs a better win-con, incase you are faced with a deck which isn't aggro focussed. I hope this is of some help, have fun brewing your deck.

Hi maxon,

Off the top of my head I'd suggest Cloudfin Raptor and Illusory Angel could be good fits in this deck. If you weren't so flying focussed I'd suggest Signal Pest and Looter il-Kor, what about Smuggler's Copter? Or you could perhaps try Ajani Goldmane as an additional pump or to gain some life?

In any event good luck with your brew.

You definitely want Scroll of Avacyn.

And if you want early game Angelic Page, Serra Avenger and Emancipation Angel might be good. Illusory Angel and Jenara, Asura of War if you want to splash blue. If you go smaller Angels Lyra Dawnbringer gets better too.

Hey, i am also running Illusions in my local stores modern fnm and have some expierience.

I am using 2 Monastery Sieges right now, so far to great effect, they can either protect my lord by taxing opponents or loot to give lots of virtual card advantage (drawing 2 spells each turn and discarding a land is great to close out games)

If you can i would get some Aether Vials and change the Illusionary Servants for Illusory Angels as they have a bigger body and don't have the sacrifice clause, as they will be vialed in anyways so not being able to cast them doesn't matter that much.

Cavern of Souls: expensive and i don't own it but there are basically no downsides for running 4 of them.

I would cut the Unsubstantiates as you don't need them anymore to protect your creatures from counters, as they can't be countered and bouncing a removal spell or a creature to it's owners hand usally isn't very effective.

I also have an illusions deck and pretty similar but I would suggest taking out at least one Illusory Angel because for me they are very often dead cards if I don't have at least 4 mana and a one drop.
