Phantasmal Image

Creature — Illusion

You may have Pantasmal Image enter the battlefield as a copy of any creature on the battlefield, except it's an Illusion in addition to its other types and it gains "When this creature becomes the target of a spell or ability, sacrifice it."

Phantasmal Image Discussion

Here are some maybeboard suggestions: Lands: Field of the Dead - With all of the land recursion, it seems like this would generate a lot of value. You could get 2 2/2 zombies off of a fetch land. Plus, as I'm writing this TCGPlayer has it for $1.50.

Creatures: There are two creatures in the deck that I think have good recursive value, but are my least favorite in the decklist. I would replace either Reef Worm (doesn't do anything when it hits the battlefield, can be exiled), or Phantasmal Image (depends on another creature on the battlefield.) Consider these two as they're synergystic to a degree: Arcum Dagsson - Baleful Strix , Wurmcoil Engine , and Spellskite are all targetable by this dude. He can fetch any of your noncreature artifacts. TCGPlayer has it for $13.00. Corpse Connoisseur - Recursive Entomb . <$0.50.

Enchantments: Figure out a way to include Secrets of the Dead .

Also, I'm sure you're already working on it, but Palinchron is strictly better than Peregrine Drake because it has a 'return to hand' clause. Which not only protects it, but allows you to go infinite mana other ways, like Phantasmal Image or Phyrexian Metamorph .

the majority of slivers that people play in modern will only affect their own side of the board, which means your statement "opponents Sliver abilities will stack on our swarm of 1/1 Slivers" is actually pretty inaccurate.

also, Dormant Sliver will just enable your sliver opponent to just keep drawing cards until they have an answer to it. Homing Sliver will let them get their Necrotic Sliver to blow up your Dormant Sliver .

Screeching Sliver will just let your sliver opponent mill you.

should definitely use more lands if you wanna use cmc 5 cards. theres no guarantee you'll draw a mana sliver.

Quick Sliver is not modern legal.

as someone who has played 5C slivers in modern for over 3 years now, i can safely say that this build wouldn't stop my slivers. i run Aether Vial and Collected Company , which allows me to drop slivers faster, and i also run plenty of buffing slivers ( Predatory Sliver , Sinew Sliver , Sedge Sliver , and Phantasmal Image to copy them) which guarantees my slivers are bigger. so unless you're lucky enough to get a turn 2 Manaweft Sliver followed by a turn 3 Dormant Sliver , i'm gonna win too quick for your plan to work. even then, i'll just grow my army while gaining tons of life off my Lavabelly Sliver (which could also just kill you on its own if you try to stall too long, since its affect stacks with itself, and i have Phantasmal Image to copy it). then when you finally blow up your own Dormant Sliver , i win anyway.

Ever consider Palinchron for the easy Phantasmal Image / High Tide /whatever combos with Tasigur especially with Neoform ?

Hackball is a cEdh deck that uses Momir Vig, Simic Visionary with Sleight of Mind to chain multiple creatures together, gaining advantage through elf synergy via Heritage Druid Nettle Sentinel Phantasmal Image .

This is the main decklist for tappedout: hackball for more indepth information

This is a good start. I'm not a fan of Spirit Bonds . All of your creatures are spirits so you'll never be able to use the second ability. If you are looking for spirit tokens try Spectral Procession . It's faster. Another card to consider is Phantasmal Image . It works wonders in tribal decks. Drogskol Captain gives everyone hexproof except its self. Copy it with a Phantasmal Image , now the original Drogskol Captain and new Phantasmal Image have hexproof. Everyone else is getting +2/+2. These are just a few ideas.

I'm usually pretty content to use Phantasmal Image to copy a cantrip creature, but I find that my preferred targets are either tutor creatures, Beast Whisperer / Primordial Sage , or Peregrine Drake . There are also some other commanders that I wouldn't mind copying if given the chance; such as Tymna the Weaver or Derevi, Empyrial Tactician .

Long gone are the days when clone effects would let you kill your opponents' legendary permanents, but I've generally found that both Phantasmal Image and Phyrexian Metamorph offer good value plays anyway. I do miss being able to use the Metamorph to destroy an opponent's Umezawa's Jitte though.

Maybe instead of Phantasmal Image you can use Jwari Shapeshifter , Mirror Image , Cackling Counterpart or Quasiduplicate .

Sadly Phantasmal Image is rare because it's a 2-cost Clone that can copy an opponent's creature. The others are: Artisan of Forms , Metamorphic Alteration , Shapesharer and arguably Mirror Mockery .
