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."

The main thing I'm noticing is you're a bit flooded at your 4 drop slot. I only mention this because all those cards compete with your commander and can make for some clunky opening plays where nothing comes down before Marchesa. Replacing about 5 or so of these with 1, 2, and 3 drops will give a noticeable uptick in consistency for your early game.

Grim Haruspex deserves 1 of those spots. It's worth its weight in gold here.

Sage of Fables immediately protects Marchesa and allows you to abuse any wizard etb/death triggers on everyone's turn instead of once per round. The option for card draw is nice in a pinch also.

Vigean Graftmage is deceptively amazing here. It can immediately protect Marchesa and it allows you to abuse any 1 etb/death trigger (itself + 1 other) on everyone's turn.

Phantasmal Image is worth consideration just for its efficiency.

Seize the Spotlight is almost always going to draw 3 essentially for free, which is the lesser of 2 evils for your opponents. If they actually let you steal creatures... have fun with your new toys lol!

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's one of the top lists here on tappedout and I've been playing her for about 7 1/2 to 8 years now. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa to Love Them

Straight away, this is a deck I'd enjoy playing. I love how out of control it can get, and dragons are arguably the most nostalgic tribe in Magic, which is a big plus for me! Anyway, here's some thoughts that might be helpful as you continue testing. I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to commander though, so take my suggestions with a pinch of salt :).

In any dragon deck, I like Zirilan of the Claw. He's a nice little tutor/sneak attack for dragons, and with the way you're set up to copy your dragons you should get at least one copy to hang around permanently. Along the lines of getting gragons out quickly, for cost reduction have you looked at Dragonspeaker Shaman or Dragonlord's Servant? I'm not sure if you're hurting in that area, but they might help if you are.

For the 'dragons or permanents that deal non-combat damage' category there's Bogardan Hellkite and Shivan Hellkite. Both are pretty high on the mana curve, but I like the repeatability of Shivan's ability and the copyability (sure, that's a word) of Bogardan's.

Interestingly, being in blue also gives you access to clones like Vesuvan Doppelganger, Phantasmal Image, and of course Clone. With the high number of legendary creatures they might not always have a target, but I think they would most of the time and it could really let you double up on tokens, triggers, and effects.

This is probably getting a little too cute, but Archwing Dragon and all its tokens would repeatedly trigger things like Impact Tremors. You wouldn't get to keep the tokens, but being able to cast a dragon every turn might have some value. Like I said, I'm probably stretching with that one.

Those are just some ideas I had when looking through the list. You'll know better from your testing if any of them have value, but I hope I at least mentioned a couple that are helpful :)

The plan was also to add Spark Double both Sakashimas (i.e. Sakashima of a Thousand Faces/Sakashima the Impostor) but seems i forgot to add them to the list. So thanks for the suggestion.

Considering if Phantasmal Image is worth it.

I love this deck! I've been looking for a five color deck to represent Kamigawa and I think this is what I've been looking for. Thoughts on Kyodai, Soul of Kamigawa as an alternate commander? It didn't seem to synergize well at first until I realized that she could be used as protection for your clone target.

Some more clone cards that may interest you (if you haven't considered them already):

I think the mana base needs tweaking some and you could probably work on lowering the mana curve somehow, though I'm not too sure on how best to go about that.

SpammyV yup I agree, Megantic is out. Doesn't buff enough for the effort it takes to get him out and Predatory + Sinew should do well enough.

Even if I upgrade Shock to Lightning Bolt, should I even keep it in the deck do you think?

Unclaimed Territory and Secluded Courtyard seem useful but just to check, am I right in my understanding that "cast a creature spell" is the same thing as summoning a creature? It's just that the limitation on the card is that it can only be used for Slivers, provided that they're the creature type I choose?

Phantasmal Image is cool, do you think I should opt for that, or maybe a changeling creature with another useful ability?

I'll echo the comments on focusing on the 2-drop Slivers that buff your team. Megantic Sliver is probably too expensive and slow. Shock should probably be upgraded to Lightning Bolt or Dead / Gone. I don't think Giant Grown and Channel the Suns will do enough.

Unclaimed Territory and Secluded Courtyard would be relatively cheap additions to the manabase that make casting all your Slivers easier. Phantasmal Image can be another one of any Sliver you want.

SirChris39 You just have to clone it at least once. Any of the cards that are under the Clones section can accomplish this. It should be noted that Lonis, Cryptozoologist only triggers off of nontokens, so things like playing Phantasmal Image will immediately gain the benefits of getting tokens but Rite of Replication requires an additional creature to play afterwards or in the case of the infinite combo just one activation of Deadeye Navigator.

With Kenny, I like sac effects because it guarantees I can reanimate the creature for value. Fleshbag Marauder, Demon's Disciple, Merciless Executioner, Plaguecrafter, etc.

Bloom Tender is great, as is Phantasmal Image. Of course, Dockside+loops. Ranger-Captain of Eos is great with recursion. Cataclysmic Gearhulk is also a good backup plan for when things go wrong, and easier to reuse because you can sac it to itself. On that note, any of the Altars or other sac outlets are great. There's Peregrine Drake loops, too, and it's also just great for value if you have a cost reducer out for Kenny.

Some cards I think would be worth considering swapping out: Esika, God of the Tree  Flip, Burnished Hart, Ethersworn Adjudicator (IMO, Caustic Caterpillar is best, or Cathar Commando for artifact/enchantment hate), Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, Celestial Dawn.

You could probably justify going down on lands if you upped your dork count, which would play really well if you added Ashnod's Altar to use them for mana later. City of Brass is also a pretty budget rainbow land. Chittering Witch is a good source of removal, blockers, or fodder for sac effects. Renegade Rallier and Sun Titan can make for some explosive turns, as well. Shriekmaw is great for targeted removal that can later be reanimated. Cowardice and Willbreaker are more nice effects like Horobi. Fires of Invention can be another effect like Wilderness Reclamation, and doesn't limit Kenny's activations.

But finally, my absolute most favorite card when playing casual Kenny is Final Parting. Basically another Jarad's Orders, but adding Unburial Rites or Priest of Fell Rites makes it a tight package to reanimate a fatty, or tutor one of your enchantments if needed.
