Phantasmal Image Discussion

Oh also I run Equilibrium so I can storm off sort of Tidespout Tyrant style with a couple cheap sphinxes like Argent Sphinx and Conundrum Sphinx, or honorary sphinxes like Metallic Mimic and Phyrexian Metamorph. It's also useful just to bounce creature's you don't like your opponents having.

Okay so I switched out a bunch of cards you suggested, put in Thirst for Knowledge Dack Fayden Palinchron Phantasmal Image and Fact or Fiction, i also picked up a Time Spiral and put it in there.

@Snapdisastermage Thanks for the comment. The deck originally included Peregrine Drake and Deadeye Navigator. I have pared down redundancy in favor of a more compact win-condition and less dead draws. Palinchron and Phantasmal Image or the Cabal Coffers combo has worked extremely efficiently. I don't need my wincon until late game and once I need it it is almost never difficult to gather. If a piece gets exiled I have Riftsweeper as a safety net. He is effectively my more compact redundancy package.

Let's assume you have Geralf's Messenger with a +1/+1 counter. And also a Phantasmal Image copying the messenger, with a +1/+1 counter. If you cast Tragic Slip and target the image, it will die due to its sacrifice ability. And Tragic Slip will fizzle (be removed from the stack) since it has no target. Now if the messenger was dying and your targeted it with Tragic Slip it also wouldn't help. This is because +1/+1 counters are only canceled out by -1/-1 counters. And Tragic Slip doesn't use counters. It just alters the power/toughness.

For this to work you could use something like Instill Infection. This would save Geralf's Messenger but not Phantasmal Image. In fact if you use this card on the image you wouldn't even draw a card because it would have no target and fizzle.

If I controlled a Phantasmal Image that is a copy already of my Geralf's Messenger I control, and the image has already died and returned with its undying effect, giving it a +1/+1, and I recopy the messenger . . .

What would happen if I play Tragic Slip on my image (that has copied messenger again and has its undying +1/+1)?

1.) Would the -1/-1 counters remove the +1/+1 counters and THEN the images effect of "When this creature becomes the target of a spell or ability, sacrifice it." activates. Allowing the copied messenger undying effect to replay.

OR,

2.) would my image die without undying resolving because of his "sacrifice once it becomes a target" effect?

DesArthes on Zubera Tribal (yes, it's a thing)

Hi, nice deck. I thought Zuberas can be played only in pauper, because modern didnt add much more for this deck. But Atheros, Mirror entity and CoCompany speaks otherwise :-).

My tip: i could cut one (or 2) colors. Most obvious is probably red one, since you play only red zubera and nothing more, instead i will add black zubera or Phantasmal Image. And maybe i would change Ensnaring Bridge for Aether Vial.

Emzed on Dominus - Dreamcrusher Edition

That's just one BSZ, however if you use custom categories, the same card can be listed in multiple categories. (Phantasmal Image also appears as both "Utility" and "WinCon".)
