Phantasmal Image Discussion

I think removing two plains for two Moorland Haunt. Chances are you'll have enough plains to play anything in your deck even if you draw both of them. If anything, your Mana base would need the biggest upgrade if you want more blue though. I'd recommend budget dual lands like Port Town or Irrigated Farmland or Prairie Stream.

So I should say blue/white spirits is gaining popularity in modern, as opposed to any other format. The deck I'm talking about uses cards like Mausoleum Wanderer, Spell Queller, Phantasmal Image, and Aether Vial. Obviously super expensive but the deck is basically an aggro deck and a control deck at the same time.

I have a spirit deck myself, feel free to check it out if you want some ideas. It's the deck called Kindred Spirits on my page.

Sorry to come in on your guy's deck creation but I really like the idea of this deck! I think now that you have the colors sorted Birds of Paradise can be substituted with the before mentioned and mayboarded Stitcher's Supplier. As it keeps the curve low and can allow you to dump creatures into the graveyard. And with cards like Stitcher's Supplier , Grisly Salvage , and Glowspore Shaman this next suggestion just might not have room. But one of my all time favorite self mill cards is Mulch. Lastly, I do like a few main board ways to get your creatures back from the graveyard. A few were already mentioned and if budgeting isn't a problem a card like Liliana, the Last Hope Could be good, she can remove creatures like Phantasmal Image which is popular right now, stops attacks from Spell Queller and much more! she also is the alternate win-con you liked before in door to nothingness she can just plus up and ult some games, especially against control as dealing with planeswalkers is kind of difficult. And a little sidenote her emblem gets you an extra zombie with Stitcher's Supplier, Ghoultree, and Molderhulk as they are all zombies, probably wont be relevant just a neat trick

I would probably run some clone cards to make extras of the best pirates like Phantasmal Image or Stunt Double Also why run Coastal Piracy when you can run Bident of Thassa instead, well of course there is flavour win.

Saw your comment on asking about wincons, so here is my deck:


Commander / EDH x12721


Some notable cards I'd have to recommend are Phantasmal Image and Blood Artist/Zulaport Cutthroat. Copying your opponent's big thing for two mana is always nice, and it's reusable. And of course, draining for everything dying is always nice. Finally, Walking Ballista is always super good, and can count as either a creature or an artifact for the turn. I have also received a pair of good suggestions from AgentJackjohn: Mindslaver and Possessed Portal.

SaberTech on Ancestral Animar

This is the list I was looking at: Sisay Stax/Combo

The description section is organized well and lists alternative card choices that may appear in different builds. It doesn't run Humility though, thankfully, because it really wants Sisay out and active.

Linvala, Keeper of Silence is annoying because it shuts down mana dorks and Kiki but I might actually like to see it on the table more than some of the other stax options the deck runs. My Animar list still runs Phantasmal Image and Phyrexian Metamorph so being able to clone Linvala to shut down Sisay would probably wind up hurting them more than me.

Ever since Spellseeker was printed I've been considering the option of a mainboard Nature's Claim in the deck. It's not needed as much now that we have Goblin Cratermaker but I still think it is a worthwhile meta option if you are frequently playing against decks like Sisay.

Thank you for your suggestions! Marwyn, the Nurturer , Thada Adel, Acquisitor, and Ulvenwald Tracker will probably be good additions to the deck. Kalonian Hydra might also be good but there is always the risk of him getting kill spelled before I get a chance to swing.

The reason for Woodland Bellower is because he can tutor any small creature for me which is like 90% of my deck, he can especially tutor Fierce Empath which can tutor any of my big creatures like Craterhoof Behemoth. For Priest of Titania it ramps a lot of mana because all my mana dorks and ezuri are elfs. Phantasmal Image it just adds flexibility to the deck. Caller of the Claw is a nice way to have creatures on board just in case of a board wipe. Avenger of Zendikar is good by himself but combos really well with Craterhoof Behemoth thanks to Tooth and Nail.

I might take out Primal Vigor for one of your suggestions because that card is strong but it sadly helps my opponents too much. Also I have Doubling Season which is a great card.

Thanks once again. If you have any other tips please let me know.

I would recommend something instead of Opt wich wouldn't clear you the way to better cards, but would help you to fill the opponent's graveyard so Jace's Phantasm has higher chance to get buffed. I've just build something similar mono blue illusions but Phantasmal Image is too expensive for me.
