Dispel Discussion

beakedbard on UR prowess aggro

Personally i'd run Distortion Strike or Slip Through Space over Run Amok for better evasion at a cheaper cost. Wild Slash is a strictly better Shock. Also you are better having some form of 1cmc counter over Mana Leak something like Dispel or Spell Pierce because most of the time your counterspells are there to protect your creatures. Assault Strobe is also worth considering over Temur Battle Rage. Delver of Secrets  Flip could maybe find room in here as well although he's not massively needed. I'm sure there's some other things I've missed I've been trying to get this deck running since Prowess first came out only problem is it loses hard to targeted discard unless you draw a god hand. I hope all of this helps.

ToolmasterOfBrainerd on Wait, you play Grixis? Why?

I could cut a Flooded Strand and an Island for 2, but hitting my colors is more important than ever with Anger of the Gods in the deck. But the payoff is real. I think 1 for an Island is definitely worth it. I used a lot of removal on manlands against Jund tonight. I'll start with 1 and if it's not hurting too much I'll add another. Not going to 2 right away because I only own 1.

Regarding Leyline, I need 4 Anger of the Gods in the sideboard. The testing I've done shows me it's way too good to not play. Additionally, the Eldrazi matchup is so bad that I need to be sideboarding something for them. Collective Brutality is the best thing I can do against the colorless menace, and the matchup is bad enough to warrant playing 4. Finally, if I play any Leyline of the Void, I need at least 2, and probably should play 4. That only leaves me with 3-5 spots, in which I need to address burn and midrange and control. 3 spots Certainly isn't enough. 4 probably isn't. 5 might be. Those 5 would be 2x Dispel, 1x Countersquall, and 2x Collective Brutality and I'd have to add another Terminate (probably cutting 1 opt) to the main deck to feel safe. Could 2 Leyline of the Void be enough to justify playing any? It's only in the opening hand 22% of the time, but with 2 copies I'd board it in against Control, Mardu Pyromancer, BGx, and any Snapcaster Mage deck.

Basically I'm worried about spots in my sideboard and how I'm allocating them. I need to be good against the field, not just beat one deck.

Thanks for helping me puzzle through this.

ellie-is on UR Storm

I don't think you have enough wizards for Wizard's Lightning. Some other cards to consider instead are Lava Spike, Needle Drop, and maybe Rift Bolt. The latter is nice because you cast it on the turn after you pay for it, so you can get a bigger Storm chain going. Take my advice with a grain of salt, though, I've never played with Storm myself, haha.

I don't think buddy lands are good for this, but I personally really like check lands, and fast lands work great with fast decks like this, too. You also have significantly less blue spells than you do red, so once you add nonbasics, consider running less islands than mountains, or, depending on how many nonbasics you have, skipping islands altogether (or perhaps just one or two in case you get hit with a Ghost Quarter).

Another nice card you might want to consider is Kiln Fiend. They usually play that in conjunction with Apostle's Blessing to make sure it can land a hit.

Finally, maybe switch out Spell Pierce for Dispel, or run both. Dispel can help make sure nobody disrupts your combos by getting rid of the Prowess creatures as they're about to deal lethal damage.

ArchonBlue on U/W Control

I've got a few suggestions that shouldn't really raise the cost of the deck.

With Chromatic Star or Prophetic Prism it's easy to fix black mana. But something like Dispel would not require that much luck on color fixing and would be a better choice. Thanks for pointing that out. Red Elemental Blast is a great suggestion too.

I'm running a 4 of Expedition Map and 3 of Crop Rotation to help with assembling tron.

Ponder is a great suggestion. Which card would you cut to play it?

Aven Mindcensor, Hushwing Gryff, Spirit of the Labyrinth, Winter Orb, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Kinjalli's Sunwing, Vryn Wingmare, Mother of Runes, Ramunap Excavator, Aura of Silence, Sun Titan, Swords to Plowshares, Alms Collector, Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist, Eladamri's Call, Tocatli Honor Guard, Eidolon of Rhetoric, Kataki, War's Wage, Propaganda, Ghostly Prison, Windborn Muse, Stasis, Static Orb, Glowrider, Rising Waters, Lodestone Golem, Damping Matrix, Cursed Totem, and Damping Sphere

The cards above are powerful stax pieces that are heavy play, yet range from 0.15$ to 5$ on tcgplayer. Below are more expensive cards that still are good for the deck, yet are not required.

Hokori, Dust Drinker, Rhystic Study, Sphere of Resistance, Thorn of Amethyst, Nature's Will, Bear Umbra, Sword of Feast and Famine, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Recruiter of the Guard, and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben.

Other than these stag pieces (cards used to lock your opponents out of the game) the deck should ramp, have some good interaction, and have draw power too. It can then use a decent field of small creatures and some combat steps, or powering out planeswalker ultimates to win. Below are some ideas on how to do that.

Ponder, Brainstorm, Arbor Elf, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Supreme Verdict, Wrath of God, Heroic Intervention, Counterspell, Swan Song, Dispel, Negate, etc.

Saint1129 on Let's Begin With Control...

I was already planning on adding Ceremonious Rejection and Rest in Peace once I buy/find a copy of them. So I agree with that.

Recently I've been looking into more ways to combat the current Modern MTG meta, and agree that Blessed Alliance would be a good card to sideboard in against Death's Shadow decks.

As for Wrath of God, Negate, and Dispel I can see them being useful in certain matchups... But only on rare occasions. MAybe a one of each on the sideboard.

As for Disdainful Stroke, I don't really think there's enough value in it to use it in a deck unless I'm going against affinity or some sort of tron... Not sure how many spaces I can afford on my sideboard, so I probably won't end up using it.
