If my opponent controls a Geralf's Messenger and I cast Phantasmal Image and copy his Geralf's Messenger.  Does my Phantasmal Image come into play tapped or untapped?

Please autocard [c]Geralf's Messenger[/c] = Geralf's Messenger

Yes the copy will enter the battlefield tapped.  When applying replacement effects that effect how a permanent enters the battlefield, the you apply self, control, and copy effects (in that order) before other effects.  So first the messenger is copied, and since it at that point has the effect that causes it to enter the battlefield tapped it would also enter the battlefield tapped.
