Jace's Phantasm Discussion

Jace's Phantasm is also pretty good. his price should go down since it is getting reprinted in Iconic Masters as a common i believe.

I think Jace's Phantasm fits here, too. Certain to be removed, Tome Scour fills the 1CMC slot better.

Yay first comment! Is Nightveil Specter good it's a good flyer but, you won't always be able to cast the exiled card all the time without mana fixing. Your curve only starts at 2 think 1 drops would be nice: Hypnotic Siren decks with big creatures, Jace's Phantasm sideboard against graveyard decks, Judge's Familiar sideboard against combo deck, Siren Stormtamer against removal heavy decks, Signal Pest and Blight Keeper are just good.

Cool deck. I like illusions too, I have been trying to get it to work for a while. I think that you might want to take out the Chronozoas and Anticipates for Jace's Phantasm and Krovikan Mist, as they are evasive beaters, and they fill oit the curve, and then a playset of Adaptive Automaton, because it is another lord, and tribal decks generally want as many lords as possible. Also, I think that you want Mana Leak over Rune Snag, because you probably won't actually get any others in your graveyard, so I think that it is just better, but not majorly so. Anyway, aside from that, sweet deck, definitely +1 from me :)

Check out Monastery Siege for protection. Id drop the Errant Ephemeron for Illusory Angel. Also Phantasmal Bear and Jace's Phantasm are good drops for buffing the Krovikan Mist. A set of Force Spike for protecting your creatures might work as well.

Countermand is pretty bad in this deck, a 4 mana counterspell that maybe turns on Jace's Phantasm probably isn't worth it. I see what you're doing with Draining Whelk, but you should probably just curve out at 5 with your Godheads and play more aggressive creatures.

Here's what I would do:

-2 Countermand

-2 Draining Whelk

-2 Mindshrieker

-4 Slith Ascendant

+4 Faerie Miscreant

+2 Favorable Winds

+4 Some 2-mana counterspell, Mana Leak and Remand are pretty good.

I feel that Thought Scour doesn't do enough. You could run some early bounce (Unsummon, Vapor Snag) for turns 1 and 2 while you wait for your counters and Repeals.
Why: You need at least a to cast your spells for disruption, and you still have your Expedition Maps to get out and use to find your Tron lands. That's a lot for early game to be focusing on. Your opponent will have a boardstate.

Furthermore, you have to ramp into Fraying Sanity a cool 3-cost mill enchantment, no doubt, and rather tricky to use, as you can't just jam it into every mill deck. I like it here.

Anyway, your other options are boardwipe-bounce like AEtherize or Cyclonic Rift, which takes care of go-wide decks and fits your ramp curve nicely.

I would take out just one Visions of Beyond. 4x simply seems redundant in a deck that needs a little time for your draw to be max effective.

Jace's Phantasm seems underpowered for this deck. It's an easy go-to for a mill deck, but your build is unique and deserves more scrutiny as far as creature potential. You'll have mana, and you'll have cards in the graveyard. Hangarback Walker poses a board-threat (twice) as a blocker and a backup wincon.

Or, you could always forego a creature base and go spell-slinger. Add a mill punch and reuse your Instant spells with Psychic Spiral. Or throw some lifegain in with Profane Memento.

Didn't mean to write a book! LOL Guess I got on a rant. Nice deck, man. I like the flavor. +1

TheSurgeon on Blue Mill Maybe?

Sphinx's Tutelage is simply better than Curse of the Bloody Tome for the same cost.

Rid yourself of Crosstown Courier, Thassa's Devourer (too expensive), and all of the spells that give you unblockable. Try some creatures that force your opponent to make choices. Salvage Drone or Invisible Stalker + Curiosity or Trepanation Blade. Another handy artifact would be Infiltration Lens.

Unquenchable Thirst is useless, as you don't have any Deserts in the deck.

Claustrophobia is too expensive. Try some bounce spells like Unsummon, Vapor Snag, even Voyage's End for some topdeck fixing.

Don't worry about doing so much damage, so you don't need Spectral Flight, just keep spells that keep milling. If you do need a backup win, use the cards in the graveyards to your advantage with Jace's Phantasm. Doubles as a hefty blocker as well.

Hope this helps speed it up a little!
