Phantasmal Image Discussion

Grubbernaut on Kenrith, the Omnipotent

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.

as a modern faerie main player, i like running Phantasmal Image, Quickling, and Mistbind Clique. Reasoning is to synergies with flickering effects. champion a Spellstutter Sprite, play Scion of Oona to protect from removal, Quickling the mistbind to counter a card plus since quickling doesnt target, it gets around shroud. then recast mistbind or phantasm spell stutter to counter again while by passing shoud again cause it never targets and a bunch of other shinannigans.

hab äther vial 1x, müsste es öfter haben damit es zündet....

danke die 1 mana dropper sind besser.

Weiß noch nicht genau wo ich hin will, aber gegen die Leute gegen die ich spiele ist Unnatural Selection und Krovikan Mist ne starke flieger combi, auch kommen die Token von Master of Waves gut mit Arcane Adaptation da die elemental dann auch illusionen sind. Primär spiel ich master eigentlich wegen Altar of the Brood , hat mir neben der überflieg taktik noch ne 2 win möglichkeit eröffnet, nämlich decktod, zudem puscht es Jace's Phantasm.

hab auch gemerkt, dass neben Phantasmal Image , Unnatural Selection auch ein guter schutz für Lord of the Unreal ist. genau wie arcane adaption, da er so auch sich selbst hexproof geben kann.

5.13 avg. cmc is astronomically high even for Animar. Your first few counters are going to be slow and inconsistent.

I'd suggest more low drop creatures like Cloud of Faeries, Destiny Spinner, Shrieking Drake, Dream Stalker, Man-o'-War, Phantasmal Image, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Stratus Dancer, Walking Ballista, Wild Cantor, Imperial Recruiter, Glimpse of Nature, and Utopia Sprawl. I'd also suggest Neoform and Weird Harvest to help look up combo pieces.

Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid ⫷PRIMER⫸

Omniscience_is_life on Ronin Warclub + Phantasmal Image

3 months ago

Phantasmal Image only must be sacrificed when it becomes the target of a spell of ability, and Ronin Warclub's first ability doesn't use the word "target" at all. Magic is very clean about most of its rules--if an effect doesn't use the word "target" then it isn't a targeting effect (though do be careful about some keyword abilities, whose rules text are the only part about them that use the word target!).

Scytec on Ronin Warclub + Phantasmal Image

Will the attach clause of Ronin Warclub automatically kill Phantasmal Image upon Image entering the battlefield? Or does it only work if you pay the equip cost?

Couple Problems: Phantasmal Image, Batterskull, and Kaldra Compleat incorrectly show up as banned in modern. Secondly, you can't access sideboard mid match in the playlets feature when using Karn, the Great Creator, please fix these issues fast! Thanks.
