Phantasmal Image Discussion

Thanks for the update!
Some questions and comments on card choices below.
- First, you have two Scheming Symmetry in the list (one foil, one non-foil). This is great since it means you have another slot ;)
- Phantasmal Image - is this a general utility slot or am I missing a key combo?
- No Dark Confidant? Bob seems great to play on turn 1.
- Land count and selected lands: is 29 enough considering you have Tabernacle? Maybe 29 mana producing lands would be good? Also a bit hesitant to include Prismatic Vista with only 3 basics, but I suppose you tested this. I would consider including Cavern of Souls for when you have to push through Circu for the win.
- Have you considered Winds of Rebuke? It has synergy with the Lantern effects and is a pretty solid card anyway.
- How has Brain Freeze performed for you? You tend to see this card in grixis storm for the synergy with Underworld Breach, but here it might be a bit win-more since your commander is a storm outlet.
- Not sure if it's needed, but I was considering including Sigil Tracer as a backup for Isochron Scepter. Your commander is a wizard, so it will generate infinite storm with Dramatic Reversal, but might be a bit too niche and expensive.
- I was hoping to find room for Muddle the Mixture (finds both parts of IsoRev) and/or Spellseeker (finds Reversal), but maybe they're too expensive or slow? I like muddle before wishclaw I think, which is really only usable on the combo turn.
I'll do a more extensive review and some goldfishing later!

Got some more spicy card suggestions:
Long-Term Plans to ensure you hit the creature you want off of Kinnan's activation
Scroll Rack Would help put the cratures you draw back on top
Consecrated Sphinx for the value engine
Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger because lets be real, the only creatures you'll be casting are dorks.
Palinchron for the same reason.
Phantasmal Image for infinite mana with Palinchron OR copying a dork seems pretty strong
Library of Leng for incidentals

What to do with the other 2cmc? Could always go with Essence Warden for infinite life.
Good luck! Animar is my favorite!

Great deck! Has long been my favorite of the lab maniacs decks and I have been developing my own version parallel to yours for a long time except I still run Freed from the Real combos and it is more budget friendly. My question is why I haven't seen you test Reap before which I have found to be very impactful at any point in the game. Also, what kind of combo density is appropriate for the goals of this deck? I also run Phantasmal Image and Palinchron as the tutors such as Neoform run parallel between that combo and freed lines, but I wonder if I have lost focus from the control elements to create more winning conditions. Lastly, Any news on more from you guys? Busy lives I know, but are you going to be playing Tasigur, the Golden Fang more this season?

HezTheGod I ran verycard you mentioned: Exploration felt rly odd on a deck with 29 lands. Most of the time I wouldn't do much with it, and mid/late game if you're drawing a lot of cards, drawing into that does allow you to drop some extra lands, but then again, it's not what you want to do, you just want to keep chaining turns, and if you fizzle you want to be able to last a turn cycle, so I cut it long ago.
Wingcrafter I ran it, then I cut it out, then I ran it again xD with the new cards recently being printed, a couple of new faeries, and as you can see, my list tends to have other hate cards like Slime and Scooze, I rather take out a creature that's only good when you have another on the board, and that it doesn't have the good creature types.
Green's Sun Zenith I ran it all the way up to Finale of Devastation's release. My playgroup tends to have quite some MLD and pyro effects, and while T1 GSZ into dryad is good, getting Pyroclasmed turn 2 and losing that land was painfull. And when the Finale was released I swapped it, for the ability to be able to grab stuff like Tetsuo, and also being able to grab stuff from GY
Phantasmal Image I ran it as well all the way until this last update, with more Fish/hulk hate. Basically was good vs some good creatures and the way to "interact" with Elesh Norn, but then the meta is more Fish/hulk and I rather have extra GY hate with Slime, and ways to stifle Fish with Obstructionist
Druids' Repository Is actually the card I tested the least, as the first times I played it, a couple of years ago, I guess there was more disenchant effects in my meta, and it wouldn't last much. So I took it out. But I looked back at it again, since my meta changed. It's indeed a good card, but then again, I'm on a slower list trying to rely on mid/late game ways to win, and early game I rly want some mana up (from lands) xD

some notable cards i run i see you do not:
overall i like your deck list a lot. It has given me things to consider.
tappedout.net/mtg-decks/edrics-communist-spies-competitive-edh/ is my list if you'd like to compare.

This is FearDReaper from MTG Salvation. You asked me for my thoughts:
Dack's Duplicate never really preformed all that well for me. Imo clone effects are overrated. Phantasmal Image and Phyrexian Metamorph are also kinda meh in my experience. These guys were so much better before they changed the legend rule.
I haven't played my list in a while but if I reforged it I would definitely be trying Greven, Predator Captain. He seems to fit the deck like a glove and brings some phenominal card draw to the table.
Are you comboing with Murderous Redcap? If not I don't think he's a great include. In its place I would run Ravenous Chupacabra. If you are comboing with redcap, id still try to find a place for Chuppy. He's just sooo good
A few more cards I would add are: Herald of Secret Streams, Captivating Crew, Syr Konrad, the Grim, and Olivia, Mobilized for War (I see you have her in your maybe board but in my experience she is really good)
Lastly, idk how casual/competitive your playgroup is but if you wanna be really mean you can play Jokulhaups. I wouldn't recommend it if your group is more casual though as they will absolutely hate you lol.
Feel free to pick my brain more. Preferably on this site
