Mirror-Mad Phantasm

Creature — Spirit


: Mirror-Mad Phantasm's owner shuffles it into his or her library. If that player does, he or she reveals cards from the top of that library until a card named Mirror-Mad Phantasm is revealed. That player puts that card onto the battlefield and all other cards revealed this way into his or her graveyard.

Ryanh12 the AEtherling is indeed the main way of flickering Mairsil. This is probably a last resort though in the case that the other combos cannot be executed. The main cage target for Mairsil is Mirror-Mad Phantasm to put your entire deck into your graveyard and infinite combo from there.

I used to be running a less combo and more value Mairsil deck if you are interested. It ran creatures like Torchling for additional protection for Mairsil. As well, Shauku, Endbringer was an excellent piece of removal. Additional untappers helped me gain additional value. I thought Soliton and Horseshoe Crab were neat and still have both in foil! Attaining a lock with AEtherling and Nevinyrral's Disk was also quite satisfying.

Laboratory Maniac + Paradigm Shift does work like this: Paradigm Shift does exchange your library with your graveyard. If you have not many cards in the graveyard, then you may win pretty easy with Laboratory Maniac and any draw card.

With Doomsday you are able to put your cards in your library you need to win the game. Fantastic with Laboratory Maniac . A little bit of a risk to play this card. But wow, what an impact does this card make. Guess every opponent can't believe the awesomeness of playing this card.

On the other hand, if you are not going into this idea please take a look at "The Many-Faced God" - [[Primer]], because this deck works nearly the same as your deck wants to work.

If you are going to buy any of this card, please don't haste. This deck needs many test games to see what cards will word and what cards won't. There are many expensive cards you don't need at all. Like Wasteland . Play Strip Mine , this card is cheaper to buy and is better. The only reason that Wasteland is expensive is that Wasteland is unbanned in the popular MTG Play Format "Legacy" and Strip Mine is banned.

You may reduce costs in you lands, if you like to get a more budget reasonable deck. Bloodstained Mire , Marsh Flats , Polluted Delta are way too expensive for their effect. They are 1) better in other formats like Legacy or Modern and 2) you are playing 2 colors, so normally you have both colors available. Sunken Ruins , Minamo, School at Water's Edge , Shizo, Death's Storehouse are good if you have them already, otherwise they won't make that big impact (They are indeed good cards, just saying) if you need to buy them.

Balthor the Defiled and Mirror-Mad Phantasm for setting up vicious reanimation schemes; if you add in clones and you clone the phantasm you could entirely mill your library for spectacular finishes using mass reanimation and Gray Merchant of Asphodel . If you are afraid of milling out using the previous setup just throw in an eldrazi titan and call it good.

Mairsil, the Pretender tends towards combos but some of them are more like wicked interactions and are not infinite.

Spikeshot Elder // Hateflayer + Tree of Perdition + a way to reset Mairsil's toughness like AEtherling , this allows you to kill 1 player each turn.

Laboratory Maniac + Mirror-Mad Phantasm , empty library with a caged mirror mad and win.

And using Pestilent Souleater or Vector Asp with AEtherling is sneakier than most people realize.

Definitely nasty concept. Maybe Mirror-Mad Phantasm or Traumatize to mill yourself?

Why not play Imperial Seal ?

Have you considered cutting an Island for Oboro, Palace in the Clouds ?

Finally, you already have Mirror-Mad Phantasm , Necrotic Ooze , Fatestitcher , and Dread Return in the deck you might want to consider adding Narcomoeba and Dregscape Zombie . (If you turn mill yourself with Lazav (aka Mirror-Mad Phantasm ) then for one mana you can fire off Dread Return winning with Necrotic Ooze .)

Mirror-Mad Phantasm , Jace's Erasure , Mesmeric Orb , Hermit Druid . put 0 basic lands in your deck if you use that last one.

Thanks bkelly8401!

Its kind of like a risk/reward thing. While cards like hermit Druid and Mirror-Mad Phantasm mill you a ton of cards and play well with cards like Lord of Extinction , they bring a high risk of losing a big part of your library to gravehate. Usually cards like mesmeric orb, hedron crab, the dredge cards and more give you all the options and flexibility you need. That’s why I destroy my own mesmeric orb often after milling like 20-30 cards. Having like 60-80 cards in the grave doesn’t improve the decks performance much but it may lose you the game in case of an unanswered graveremoval. If your meta doesn’t play much cards like bojuka bog, tormods crypt etc then you can play hermit Druid and mirror mad without that much of a risk.
