Phantasmal Image

Creature — Illusion

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

Yeah, there are many ways to get big mana.

Here is a story: I was playing a Bruvac the Grandiloquent edh, and I had Bribery in hand. Now, I know that one of my opponents is playing Blightsteel Colossus and another is playing Dockside Extortionist.

So, I played Bribery and got Dockside Extortionist on turn five. Phantasmal Image it. Clever Impersonator it. Make approximately twenty treasure. Play Bruvac the Grandiloquent, Maddening Cacophony, and Relic of Progenitus to mill out most of my opponents library's. Pact of Negation was a backup in case there was removal.

So, Dockside Extortionist allowed a mono-blue mill deck to win on turn five.

As an example of a budget list that could work, within this theming:

Now yes, the above list is vastly different to what you're running, and was also just thrown-together now, so will have some optimizations worth making. But is also presents a clear goal of using your opponents resources against themselves, and has the possibility of actually winning games reliably. The cards actually synergise with each-other to present a gameplan.

Just food for thought.

Kret on Can I target Myriad Construct …

Can I target Myriad Construct with Yannik, Scavenging Sentinel abilities (target Myriad Construct to exile it or target Myriad Construct to put counters on it)? Will Myriad Construct get sacrifieced or not?
The text is a different from for example Phantasmal Image, but I need to be sure before I put it in my junk deck. Myriad Construct doesn't have that "or ability" so it shouldn't get sacrificed, right?

Housegheist That's why I compared it to clones. It's basically a clone that can also give us death triggers. This is nice, but a 3 mana clone isn't a staple in most decks. Phantasmal Image is great for 2 mana, and that's why I like Animate Dead. For 2 mana, we get a similar amount of versatility.

jellyske Thanks for your kind words! I'm glad the deck and my writeups can help. Cheers, good luck, and have fun!

First let me begin by asking you to read Grand Architect third skill. Tapping is also not "targetting" so it does not trigger the illusion sack. Out of the 24 available creatures (excluding artifacts) not one is above a 3 cast (mostly 1s and 2s) so it is not uncommon to field a creature every turn if not two, making mana req fairly low, so by turn 4-5 that's a possible 8+ mana (no less than 6+ in most cases) to field an artifact. On a bad draw you are generally sitting behind a wall of hex proof guys (thank you Lord of the Unreal + Phantasmal Image) waiting for GA, on a good one you field two 6-7 cost artifacts by turn 5 with the potential to copy them the same turn essentially making them hex proof on summon. Last I checked any of the artifacts except maybe Contagion Engine is pretty rude turn 4 lol, especially if your holding counter spells for field wide return to hand cards like Devastation Tide that do not "target" which gets you around hex proof. Jace, Memory Adept however IS a very high-cost card for this deck but you didn't mention him.....

Hey Andramalech! Thanks for the upvote and your thoughts! I love Scapeshift, and I especially like using it in non-traditional ways. I've also experimented with mid-range, more control-based versions with some success. I've found the Crabshift version to be pretty fun and consistent!

How well do you find the Renegade Doppelganger and Artisan of Forms work for duplicating the crabs? I went with the more traditional Phantasmal Image because, admittedly, I didnt know about the others. But I feel like they might be slow since they don't immediately duplicate the crab. Quasiduplicate has me intrigued. I can see that being useful because of the retrace. I'm going to experiment with that a bit.

I took a peek at your version and noticed it's Vintage, which I think would be a blast! I'll take a closer look and let you know what I think!
