Hey there. Just looking to try a blue deck and try something thats not delver and mill. Critique please.
Cancelling the spell won't save your illusions, you'll still have to sacrifice them. Turn aside should be dropped for another mana leak and 3 dissipates

Negate and index can probably turn into swords(assuming you've got the money) 

Frost titan could probably turn into adaptive automaton.

There is a thread in the tier 1 tournament channel about this deck archetype

@OP dont bother running counter spells. They wont cancel the targetting of your creatures.

@Tier Using the equip will cause the swords to target and kill his illusions so thats terrible advice. However, replacing negate and index is a good idea, personally I run 4 Snags and 4 unsummons.

Adaptive is bad, its not worth the spot really. On t3 Id rather swing and use antitempo spells to put damage threw than play him.

My life as a pigeon.
It was a direct statement. I didn't know that addressing you directly would have that effect on you. Please forgive me lil' lady. I might be an outlaw, but I'm a gentleman first; and your respect is very important to me.

You could always put in Jace's Phantasm and some thought scours for the cards that have been suggested to take out.. phantasm is an illusion and can be a 5/5 if for some reason the game goes on for a while which gives you nice finishing potential

Deerp, totally wasn't thinking about it.

I think that UB illusions could be better because you have access to removal, which mono blue lacks. Sure, you have counters, but you cant counter everything or sometimes anything due to Cavern of Souls.

I would never reccomend running index even as a 1-of. Ponder is soo much better.

The point of the counterspells isn't for the illusions, its for the lord of the unreal. As long as he's alive the illusions are hexproof. If you copy a lord with the phantasmal he's a hexproof version of him.
no, the only real point of countermagic is to keep the board clear from your opponent's crap or to stop board sweepers

Um? I made the deck and I'm pretty sure I put the counterspells in there to keep them from killing my Lord of the Unreal

you built fish.dec, and fish.dec uses countermagic to stall the opponent while you kill them with cheap blue creatures

you put together cards in a deck, but this archetype is a pretty old one

and running counterspells for the sake of keeping lord alive is actually a bad overall game plan, if you're going with an all-in mentality
